D: 127-98-119 R: 17M (164) L: 156, 164, 172 STRENGTH: Quick­ness WEAK­NESS: Sta­bil­ity at Speed So. Much. Fun. The 98 was de­signed for toura­bil­ity with down­hill power: a light­weight wood core has Ti­tanal re­in­force­ments un­der­foot and damp­ing Xrys­tal Mesh fab­ric through­out. A rock­ered nose hunts for fresh, but when things get spicy the cam­bered mid­sec­tion and flat tail holds cleanly and se­curely, urg­ing you to mash the gas. It feels more di­rec­tional than surfy, more lively than damp, and far more so­phis­ti­cated than the jib­bers of Ar­mada’s past. “A great blend of live­li­ness and sta­bil­ity,” said Gibbons.
