Technical info:
Armada JJ is a classic. The geometrical principle behind this ski is actually patented. It is supposed to be widest where the rocker starts. This has almost been accomplished, but it does mean that the taper is longer than the rocker, which is rather unusual nowadays. Just like before, the JJ has a short sidecut radius, soft tail and tip, and a stiff waist. The setback is very short, which in turn gives little width difference between the back and front ski.

On snow:
The good old JJ is back. The 2.0 version is playful and easy to rotate with. It is also good for freestyle and switch skiing. The back ski, however, tends to let go before the exit of the turn and the tip can be hard to keep above the snow. It handles short turns very well. In the long turns it doesn’t really go anywhere and flutters somewhat. It suits those who want a playful powder ski that can handle most conditions.
