Tracer 108 Ski

You want the Armada Tracer 108 Ski on your side when you're eyeing big lines or backside bowls of fresh snow. The Tracer 108 is more of an all-mountain ripper than the burlier terrain-crushing 118 CHX, with a 108mm waist that charges the steep and deep but still performs in variable snow. The rockered profile floats the deep stuff with giddy, childlike joy, while camber underfoot lets you carve turns down hardpack like a spandex-clad GS racer.

The Tracer 108's hybrid wood core features lighter wood in the tip and tail with denser wood underfoot to create a playful and maneuverable flex pattern for effortless turn initiation. All of Armada's new Tracer skis feature a Xrystal Mesh layup that maintains dampness and stability for a smooth ride when you're blasting through chunky crud. While not the lightest option for a touring setup, for the cliff-dropping freerider with quads of steel these sticks would be well worth a bit of a slog for the terrain-devouring downhill capabilities the Tracer 108 possesses.

Versatile & playful pow boards

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These rip! I think this is my new favorite all mountain ski. Since we are spoiled by utah conditions, I like 108s as my go to resort ski and these seem to be an awesome addition to my quiver. Super responsive and playful in tight spaces, stable and floaty in wide open fresh snow and you can still get an edge when you need to on groomed terrain.

Pow Slayer

    These things really come to life in soft snow. They float and making turns is effortless. In-between storms they lay an edge and carve no problem. This is my one ski to rull them all for inbounds skiing.

    These Skis RIP

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am slightly obsessed with the skis already. They are super fun and playful but they can still charge through crud. A very light, versatile pow ski!

    Got float?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These skis were the perfect and most versatile of all the powder skis I've ever tried.I'm used to powder skis feeling slightly clunky. These skis allowed me to effortlessly float all over the deep stuff without sacrificing mobility.

    great all around ski

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is such a great platform from Armada. These will do just about anything you want. A great option for your backcountry touring ski, or for charging the resorts. Can't go wrong with these lightweight and bomber boards

    great all around ski

    Would you recommend sizing up or down on this ski. My daily driver resort ski is a 184 BC Atris, current pow ski Armada JJ UL 185 (too soft and skis way short with the rocker). Looking to get a set of these for primarily touring (Teton Pass, GTNP in the spring). Trying to decide between the 180 and 188. Same for the 118 Tracer (I saw you ski those as well) Thanks!

    Incredibly Versatile and Capable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Though I've yet to enjoy these on a deep day, they handled variable conditions with ease. Ripping around the resort, cruising groomers, and ungroomed terrain, they held their own no matter where they were taken. The 108 rolled edge to edge surprisingly well without issue. Armada created a quiver-killer with this ski. Worries of added weight on the skin up are not a concern, yet they're stiff enough to handle hard-charging descents. Excited to get many more days on these this season.

    Recommended Sizing Guide

    Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
