The ultra light Armada Trace 88 Skis are built for the uphill before the downhill, but come through on the descent with real ski performance. Built around Armada s lightest Hybrid Ultra-Lite core with 1.7mm edges and beveled topsheets, this ski is aimed at the touring crowd but works wonders for those seeking a super light and nimble lift-served ski as well.
EST All-Mountain Rocker – Entry rocker with positive camber under foot with subtle tail rocker. Floats in soft snow while making sure the ski stays on rails.
Flex Pattern (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 6, Waist: 7, Tail: 7
Tapertops – Beveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
Tour Ultra-Lite Core – Armada's lightest wood species create the best up-hill feel while retaining the power and dampness required to descend the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in performance in its quest to be ultra-light.
Titanal Binding Reinforcement
AR75 Sidewalls – Sidewalls 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 Base – Armada's fastest sintered graphite base.
1.7mm Impact Edge – Heat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
I-Clip Tails – Ready for climbing skin tailclips.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
