Armada JJ ski – 2014

  • Lengths: 165, 175, 185
  • Dimensions: 126-136-115-133-123

From the Editors of Freeskier:

It’s a perennial favorite at the test. The praise comes flooding in like water through a broken dam. In the simplest terms, one tester said, “It’s a great pow ski that really works well as an all-mountain ski, too.” A 115 mm footprint and rocker in the tip and tail provide solid float in the powder. Positive camber underfoot and a 14 m turning radius (@175) ensure you’ll be able to hold an edge through crud and on the hardpack, too. “So versatile,” chimed another tester. “Nimble in the trees, crazy playful and floaty. I love this ski.”
