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.

2019 Armada Tracer 118 CHX Description:

Armada rolled out the Tracer family last year, and ski testers loved their versatility. Lightweight but strong as resort skis, worthy backcountry tools, and ideal for people who want to split their time between on- and off-piste terrain about 50/50. The 118 CHX is the big guy, built for big-mountain lines and deep pow. For 2019, a bit more rocker and a tweaked taper profile give you more surf, float, and playfulness. Lightweight wood in the tips and tails keep the ski maneuverable and surfy, while hardwood and titanal reinforcement underfoot give you power and stability. Armada's Xrystal Mesh absorbs bumps and chop, keeping the Tracer 118 CHX damp. A great option for raging on your home mountain or venturing to places like British Columbia and Japan. This setup comes with a Dynafit touring binding to help you get your adventures started while keeping the weight down.
