Despite being shorter, narrower, and generally smaller compared to the other skis on the rack, the all-new Declivity 82 Ti from Armada punches well above its weight in terms of all-mountain frontside performance. Don’t count these skis out on a groomer day or during a dry spell—they can carve and perform at a level on-par with frontside skis from brands that make World Cup race skis. Plus they keep the playful, maneuverable soul Armada is best known for. Syrovatka: “Very strong ski. Perfect length and stiffness to allow any skier to have the best day.”

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Versatility

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Playfulness
