Armada 2015 Declivity Skis

SKU: 35860
Th Declivity is the brainchild of the late freeskiing legend JP Auclair who wanted a ski built for ski mountaineering and aggressive backcountry skiing. This ski has a 94mm waist which is the perfect width for the type of skiing its intended for, not too wide and bulky but not too narrow that it fails in soft snow. The AR Nose Rocker also enhances performance in soft snow and shortens up the contact points of the ski which will allow it to turn quicker. There are also titanal and carbon fiber layers built into this ski which will give it a responsive and stable feel when charging groomed runs or backcountry chutes. The Declivity makes for a great everyday resort ski for aggressive expert skiers looking to anything the mountain offers in all types of snow conditions.

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Ideal Target Skier: Big Mountain Charger: Top speed, all the time, regardless of terrain, obstacles or children in the way, these skiers need stability on par with professional downhill racers. They are usually looking for long skis that are wide and heavy.

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

AR Nose Rocker: This type of rocker profile has a rockered tip, camber underfoot and no rocker in the tail. AR Nose Rocker will help the ski float in soft snow while maintaining a solid edge hold on groomed runs.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

AR50 Sidewall: Cap in the tip and tail, sidewall under foot that balances performance characteristics with a lower swing weight and increased durability.

Titanal sheets: A unique blend of titanium and aluminum that gives extra strength and stiffness to the skis without adding too much weight. Skis with Titanal sheets are typically reserved for advanced to experts, because they require more speed or strength to flex them properly.

We Have Recommended Some Bindings For You: You will notice there is a dropdown menu that says "Ski Bindings" above. These are simply a list of curated bindings we recommend will work best for this particular ski but other bindings will work as well. There are a few factors i.e. brake width, DIN range, ability level that determine an appropriate binding choice, so let us know if you need assistance.

3 Choice Mount Position : The three choices are as follows. Park Mount is where the bindings are closer to dead center on the ski and is best for freeride skiers who want to ski switch a lot of the time. Manufacturer's mount is where the makers of the ski recommend you mount the bindings (usually between park and powder mount). Finally Powder mount is the furthest back on the ski which allows for more tip length and float in powder. If you wish to get more technical on where we mount your skis, please contact customer service.

Fiberglass Laminate Matrix: Deliberate directional layering of fiberglass stringers dictates the flex pattern and torsional rigidity of the ski. Basically, it works with the wood core to give the ski its snap and response.

Carbon And Kevlar Stringer: This ski has Carbon and Kevlar stringers in the tail of the ski to add more pop and extend the life of the ski.
