The Curated Take

Sammy S., Ski Expert
By the Expert Community

The Oblivion 102 is a good choice for skiers out West who never know what terrain they'll hit on their next run. This ski is very playful, forgiving, and light, which allows for a lot of fun in the park whether you are a regular park rat or only hit some jumps occasionally. I was also pleasantly surprised that these easygoing traits combined with a generous amount of rocker in the tips made this ski very intuitive and effortless in deeper (6-18") of powder. Though this ski was extremely "chill" and accessible, don't think that it doesn't have a backbone! This ski was much more stable than a lot of freestyle skis, making it very fun for skiers like myself who really enjoyable technical terrain like trees, moguls, and steeps. This stable and controlled personality also made it enjoyable to carve at high speeds, which is what I was most skeptical about before trying this ski. Due to this combination of accessibility and dampness, I have determined that the Oblivion 102 would be a good fit for a wider range of skiers than most skis. I would easily recommend this ski to a beginner looking for something super duper easy to turn, someone who wants to progress a ton without needing to upgrade their gear, or someone like myself who is very aggressive and just wants a tool that'll make any terrain fun!

Ideal for
  • West mountains
  • Park
  • Off-piste
Not ideal for
  • It is not best for those who have a more traditional, forward-leaning stance.
  • Will not hold much edge on ice.
  • It won't be a great option for 220+ skiers because it is so light.

The Oblivion 102 suits everyday skiers who aspire to ski like HEAD's premier freeski athletes. With a softer feel in the tip and tail, plus a tighter turn radius, the new Oblivion is stable at speed and playful in powder. The core construction blends poplar and Recycled-PET for a dynamic feel. The twin tip shape accommodates switch landings, while the 102 mm waist allows the ski to float or carve, depending on how creative you want to approach the mountain.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
