Product Info

Coming in a remarkable 8.5% lighter than previous years, the Armada Tracer 118 CHX Skis are big mountain freeride heavyweights in a feather light package ideal for those hoofing through the backcountry to find the goods. Subtle rocker and taper in the tip and tail keep things surfy but these big boys are built for speed and power, with an adaptive mesh laminate damping vibration and giving the ski stability in variable conditions. If ripping a steep couloir, charging the runout like a raging bull and then skinning back up to do it all over again sounds like a good time, the Armada Tracer 118 CHX is the ski for you.

Product Details

Rocker Type

EST Freeride RockerForebody rocker and extra tip-taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber underfoot ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.


Flex Pattern (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)Tip: 7 | Waist: 7.5 | Tail: 8


Taper TopsBeveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.


Hybrid Caruba CoreA combination of lightweight woods and full-length hardwood stringers, the hybrid Caruba core creates the ultimate in weight savings, agility,and maneuverability without sacrificing security or dampness


Adaptive MeshA variable angle weave optimizes vibration damping along the length of the ski to make the ski more damp, stable and touch without adding weight.

Laminate MatrixDirectional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.

Titanal Binding ReinforcementRubber and Titanal are sandwiched together to dampen vibrations.


AR75 SidewallsSidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.


Comp Series BaseSintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.


1.7mm Impact EdgeHeat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.

Additional Features

I-Clip TailsReady for climbing skin tailclips.
