Armada Tracer 98 FAQ:

Q: I'm looking at these skis to possibly replace my favorite (but old) BlueHouse 164s. My set weighs 10 lbs 12 oz (with bindings), and I love this light weight. Can you tell me how much these Armadas weigh with the existing bindings? Thanks, and pray for snow. Matt - Ogden, Utah From Matt - September 2021

A: That setup weighs in at about 12 lbs 2oz with bindings. Each ski comes in at 1475g in the 164cm length and the pair of bindings weighs 2570g with brakes. If that sounds too heavy let us know and we can definitely help you look for a lighter setup!

Our Take On The 2022 Armada Tracer 98:

Whether you ski out East, in the Rocky Mountain West or PNW, or somewhere in between, you probably like the sound of an everyday off-piste ski. That is how Armada describes the Tracer 98, back for the 2021-22 season with just a topsheet update. So let us unpack the claim. As an off-piste ski, the Tracer 98 is more versatile than zip-off shorts (not to mention way cooler). It is light enough to groove up a skin track, even if you need some sketchy kick turns to get to the top of your line. The weight savings also means you can zip through tree alleys in mixed snow or burn back bowl hot laps all day without destroying your quads. Freeride rocker and a surfy tip shape ensure a ripping good time when fresh snow falls. As to the everyday applications of the Tracer 98, that is arguably when the ski shines the brightest. Adaptive Mesh technology, a variable angle weave along the length of the ski and underfoot, dampens vibrations and offers stability on hard snow without adding a bunch of weight. As a result, the Tracer 98 carves and snaps edge to edge with energy and support. Everyday? Check. Off-piste? Check. Armada is right. Similar skis: Elan Ripstick 96, Head Kore 99.
