Designed for the hard-charging all-mountain skier, the Declivity 102 Ti took the full-throttle thought process of the Declivity X and applied it to a versatile chassis built for mixed conditions. A full AR100 Sidewall, Articulated Titanal Banding, a light-weight Caruba Core and triaxial glass produce a ski that is powerful and damp without carrying excess weight. A fine-tuned flex profile and a modernized shape create a performance driven all-mountain ski with no speed limit attached.

Leo Cocchiara tested this product
The Armada Declivity 92 Ti hits such a sweet spot as a hard-charging front-side ski with a playful influence that ties it back to Armada's freestyle roots. The titinal strips running through the core offers stiffness and dampening on top of a well-balanced camber rocker profile. The result being a ski that can absolutely rip carves, mob moguls, and still... Read more
Ideal for
  • Just the right amount of playful for an all mountain carver
  • Impressive float for a 92 waist width
  • Excels at high speeds on hardpack with enough versatility to get off it comfortably
Not ideal for
  • Not for beginners
  • Not ideal for touring
  • Not for deep powder

Bryant Leech tested this product
This ski is for folks who don’t like turning very much. While this ski does have just enough forgiveness to allow for turning in moguls and chop, it’s preferred speed is FAST. If you are looking for something that carves really well around 100 underfoot and offers fall-line performance without a hefty weight, this is a good one to look... Read more
Ideal for
  • This ski rips, really hard charging
  • A great ski for skiing straight, it doesn’t have a speed limit
  • It has just enough forgiveness to allow skiers to manipulate the ski
Not ideal for
  • This ski really wants to go fast, not for someone that likes short radius turns
  • Not a typical armada - it’s stiff, it’s strong and it’s wants someone in a forward stance
  • It’s a little light for the strength which means when it gets up to speed it can deflect on chopped snow

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 :/

People love Curated Experts

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Leo moved me from unsure and indecisive to fully outfitted with a shop nearby to assist, and he did it at a great price. There's no doubt he's an expert, which helped me get passed the endless options in buying skis, and he did it without any pressure to make a final purchase. I did make the purchase and I'll be back in the future.
