The Curated Take

Camden Watkins, Ski Expert

By the Expert Community

Best for skiers who love long, fast turns in mixed conditions due to its high speed stability.

Great for
  • Turn easeLoves to be on edge for long swooping turns
  • High speed stabilityStability is unreal at high speeds
  • CarvingEndlessly carving down the mountain
  • VersatilityGood in almost any condition
Avoid for
  • PlayfulnessVery damp, which can make them not as fun

The Armada Declivity 102 TI skis are designed for the big mountain, hard-charging skier that is mostly skiing mixed snowpack conditions. Armada uses a light-weight Caruba Woodcore, with added triaxial glass for a ski that is strong, fast, damp, and fairly light. Those wanting a ski capable of tackling aggressive and fast lines without being overly heavy will enjoy what the Declivity 102 TI has to offer.

Key Features:

  • Freeride Rocker – The rocker combined with camber under foot makes this a ski that can handle fresh snow and crud while, maintaining strong edge hold when carving.
  • Articulated Titanal Binding – This unique Titanal composite creates power and allows the ski to flex more efficiently on the turn.
  • AR100 Sidewalls – These sidewalls hold strong on hardpack snow surfaces, and remain very durable.

When I set out looking for a new ski last year, I did my research and narrowed it down to about 5 skis to try out. After demoing them all, the Declivity was the overall winner. I was looking for a ski for out west that held a great edge, was fairly stiff but not too demanding, and this ski... Read more

The Declivity 102TI is at home going as fast as your legs can withstand. The stability is unreal as you hit the mixed conditions you can't even tell. This ski loves to be on edge for long swooping turns endlessly carving down the mountain! At 102mm underfoot it is good in almost any condition you can think of! Highly recommend... Read more

In my experience, I found that these skis are really fun on the groomers and are super good for carving. I also found that at high speeds they chatter and can be kind of unstable. They are good in almost any conditions though, except for the crud and not ideal snow conditions.
Ideal for
  • Great for groomers
  • Great for carving and turns
  • Good in most conditions
Not ideal for
  • Chatter at high speeds
  • Very flexible
  • Heavy ski

Best do-it-all ski I have skied

Originally posted at www.armadaskis.com on Apr 26, 2023
Coming from more playful skis (done a ton of park skiing as a kid and now leaning more towards off-piste and piste-skiing, always with a playful tone. Seeking a better carving ski than my former Faction CT 3.0 that I could take out in the off-piste on. I am super happy with the ski! Have a lot of pop to it, can even be skied switch. If anything I would have mounted them 1-2 cm away from the middle - can dive if pushing hard in carving turns and leaning over your skis. If anyone is between sizes my advise would be to go for the longer length. I ski the 188 cm and would have loved an even longer ski, 193 cm or so. Quite a bit taper in front and mounted pretty far forward (according to my measurements around 6cm from ture center). Thanks Armada for a great ski!

Best ski ever

Originally posted at www.armadaskis.com on Mar 23, 2023
I have last year's version of the Declivity 102 and it's the best ski I've ever used. I've exclusively skied Armada since I was 9 years old and I doubt I'll ever change brands. Handles every type of terrain like a champ with no chatter or slippage. I've rocked them on full powders day and they float with ease. I live in the trees and they are flexible and maneuverable enough to deal with the tightest turns. Unfortunately, I won't be able to ride mine any longer because the ski edge split away from the underside of the ski and the siding has popped out slightly right underneath the bindings. I've taken them to a couple shops and everyone has told me they are cooked, unfixable, and dangerous to keep using. Super sad news as I love them but only got two ski seasons in on them. With the price being as high as it is for these skis it will probably be a while until I can get another pair :/

I've been shopping on curated and bouncing ideas off of Alex for some time now, never actually pulling the trigger. My budget has been hit and miss and often I've had to forego new in favor of used when it finally comes to the purchase. Alex has always been so helpful and ready to give advice on what gear is going to be best for me. I'm sure he'll be shocked when he sees I finally made a purchase 😅 thanks bud!

I've been looking to add new skis to my quiver after demoing Rossignal powder skis in Utah. I liked the demos but wasn't sure if they were the right choice. Tucker shared a few similar skis and one was the Atomic skis I had also demoed in WY. I settled on the Rossignal and Ticker also setup a bundle with recommended bindings for the skis. Overall, a great experience while making a sizable investment to enhance my skiing experience.
