Ski Size Chart

Picking the right ski size depends on your skiing ability, style of skiing, and height/weight.  For example, a park skier would choose a totally different size of ski than a powder skier.  So take a look at our ski size chart to find your perfect fit.

Armada designed the Tracer 118 CHX Skis as their ultimate big mountain powder ski.  Think of the Tracer 118 as the bigger, stiffer brother to the cult classic JJ skis, built for aggressive, hard-chagring skiers.  The Tracer 118 CHX takes the best of Armada's Elf Shoe Technology development in the nose and combines it with a slight amount of tail rocker to produce a surfy, yet hard-charging ski that is more directionally focused.  These skis feature Armada's Xrystal Mesh, which uses an Innegra Mesh insert to add power and stability without adding any extra weight to the ski. The Hybrid Ultra-Lite Core utilizes hardwoods underfoot with a lighter wood on the tips and tails to create a flex pattern that is easy into a turn, quick to maneuver and rigid enough to blast through choppy snow.  To handle the abuse of high speeds and big landings, the Tracer 118 skis have Titanal binding reinforcement and use traditional AR75 sidewall construction, for maximum edge control.  At just 2150 grams, these skis a easy to tour with and Armada added a I-Clip notch in the tail to keep your skins locked in place.  The Armada Tracer 118 CHX Skis are a serious big mountain ski with a remarkably light-weight package, that will keep you charging hard in the mountains.
