As JP Auclair started exploring the possibilities of ski mountaineering, a new tool was needed. Enter the Armada Declivity Skis. Balancing uphill performance with downhill enjoyability, the Armada Declivity was designed for technical terrain and high mountains. Two layers of titanal provide stability, AR Nose Rocker gives float, while a longer turning radius makes the ski stable, even on the steepest terrain or the gnarliest wind blasted snow. A flat tail accommodates any skin clip and makes the ski a valuable mountaineering tool. If the high peaks are your goal and you want a balance of uphill and downhill performance, then the Declivity is for you.
