Technical info:
Armada´s new model is a light carbon fibre semicap construction with a soft flex, especially in the tip. It has a low bend at the tip and little rocker. The mounting point is quite far at the front. It has a tiny bit of camber in the tips, and no camber in the waist. In theory Armada Tracer is an ordinary ski, without any special technical features, and the measurements are average.

On snow:
Tracer 88 is easy to maneuver and fun. However, it is also small and light. This ski doesn´t stand out in any way. You will not be up for any surprises and this makes it a little boring. The edge grip isn´t very good. This might be due to the soft flex, especially in the front, and the front mounting. This is a ski for those who want a light and simple touring ski that doesn´t offer any major surprises.
