The Armada Tracer 98 Skis are everyday workhorses that sit firmly in the new school of lightweight freeride. Weighing in a whopping 12% lighter than previous iterations they're perfect for a fleet-footed but ripping 50/50 touring setup, or if your knees have been screaming for something less fatiguing. With a 98mm waist, vibration damping Adaptive Mesh and durable fiberglass construction, the Tracer 98 is built to handle everything from the resort to the backcountry.
