Armada Declivity 102 Ti Skis

The Armada Declivity 102 Ti blurs the lines between all-mountain and freeride and does so with a directional shape and new construction that's relatively unique among Armada's ski offerings. The new collection of Declivity skis use new technology that's designed to give them powerful, energetic, and responsive performance, yet in a smooth, more user-friendly package. This is achieved through Armada's new Articulated Titanal Banding construction. Longitudinal strips are removed from the metal layers in the forebody of the ski. This actually takes away some torsional stiffness from the tip of the ski, allowing it flex or twist more naturally into a turn. Elastic compound is positioned where the metal has been removed. As you're entering a turn, getting the ski to flex, you're loading up energy in the elastic compound that results in a responsive, snappy feel when linking turns. You also get very strong edge grip underfoot, so the ski will hold an edge through a powerful, high speed turn despite the fact it entered that turn more easily than most skis with this much metal. The Declivity 102 Ti doesn't use a ton of rocker, but its 102 mm waist and tip profile does give it some versatility for softer snow conditions. Rip some carves on hardpack and go slash turns in trees; that's a perfect application for the Declivity 102 Ti.

Bought this at the start of 21/22 season.
6'
200 lbs
upper intermediate/advanced skier.
Coming off double knee surgery...i've found this ski just requires WAY too much input and work from me to be enjoyable and I've struggled on the bigger, steeper, more mogul'ed out terrain.

If I was going to replace this with something that requires more input, suggestions?

I've looked at
Fischer Ranger 102 FR @184
LOVED testing the Blizzard Rustler 10 @180 (but felt it was a bit short)
Looking at the Line Sick Day 104 @186

Any other suggestions?

Just looking for something that doesn't require as much input/work from me

HI Jason!
I think the Ranger makes the most sense--easier to turn than the Rustler, but still with a high ceiling. I actually skied the Sick Day 104 yesterday and was pretty impressed with the energy coming out of the tail, it's just not as "proven" of a ski as the Ranger. I agree, you're caught in the middle of the Rustler sizing. Have fun!

Looking at the 102 for CO conditions, intermediate level who wants something good for everything (!) from frontside to trees/moguls and those soft snow days. Thinking about a Declivity quiver (88 + 102) or a mix of Enforcer + Declivity. For a 200lb, unbooted 168cm guy, would you recommend:

Declivity 88 @ 160cm or 168cm?
Declivity 102 @ 172cm - would it be too tall?

Enforcer 88 @ 165cm + Declivity Declivity 102 @ 172cm
Declivity 88 @ 160cm or 168cm + Enforcer 100 @ 165cm or 172cm?

Or something completely different? TY!

Hi Derek,
I would go different and all Nordica for the ultimate two ski quiver for the CO.

Nordica Enforcer 88 @ 165
Nordica Enforcer 100 @ 172

Both SE tester favorites!

Have fun!
