Gear Buddy Opinion
The tracer series is Armada's back country focused line of skis. They are all cambered skis providing the nessesary relief in rough terraign and have a medium/stiff flex patern. The ski is intended to be light for touring needs so it is reenforced with titanium underfoot. The 98 version is the every day ski for someone who litterally goes out every day. This ski wont have as much float in the powder as the 108 does, however the weight savings and handling in less than ideal circumstances is a sacrifice many devoted ski tourers would make.
