The new Declivity 102 Ti made a huge first impression at Taos. Featuring an aggressive sidecut for carving, two sheets of Titanal, a caruba wood core, and an elastic polymer in the shovel, these planks perform like all-mountain wide skis from an Austrian race brand. Testers pointed out, however, they will also please those who love Armada’s progressive and playful North American roots.

STRENGTHS: Overall Impression, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Forgiveness
