2020 Armada Skis and Bindings Preview

The Blackout Shift Since becoming part of Amer Sports two years ago, joining Salomon and Atomic, Armada has maintained its unique brand identity. 2020 Armada skis and gear continue to do so (seriously...they've got an edgeless urban rail ski in the lineup...), but with one major exception. The Shift binding, released this season by Salomon and Atomic, gets tagged with an Armada logo and painted all-black for 2020.

2020 Armada Tracer 108 Description:

The Armada Tracer series epitomizes recent revolutions in ski design. They hardly fit in any one category, fit for touring, trails, and off-piste exploration. Back for 2019-2020 at 7 percent lighter, the Tracer 108 lands on the powder-happy side of the all-mountain spectrum with tapered tips and a wide enough waist width for surfing just about any quantity of soft snow. But what makes the Tracers especially forward-thinking is Adaptive Mesh technology, a variable angle weave that optimizes vibration damping along the length of the ski without adding bulk. This means less tip chatter in the tips and reliable hold through the tails. Underfoot, the weave extends from side to side for bomber stability as you ski bumps, chop, and hard snow. Ski testers are routinely surprised with how well the Tracers carve, and their soft snow prowess adds another dimension of skiability. Do not be limited by narrow-mindedness...ski free. Similar skis: Moment Commander 108, Elan Ripstick 106.
