2020 Armada Trace 98

The Armada Trace 98.

Armada produces noodles no more! The brand known for its soft and playful park skis has matured, and the proof is in the Trace 98. A light poplar wood core and tip and tail rocker mean the Trace 98 turns on a dime and keeps you afloat in powder and bumps, yet Titanal underfoot and an adaptive mesh layer throughout the ski add dampness so you don’t feel every single bump in the terrain. That said, the Trace 98 does have a speed limit.

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Playfulness

WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
