For the sidecountry hustler or the skier who wants a true one-ski quiver, J skis The Slacker is your ticket to glory. Weighing just 2,000 grams at its longest length and designed with a subtle tail notch (on a twin tip) for latching skins, the aspen wood core with maple stringers instills a damp ride while carbon fiber stringers further enhance stiffness and pop. After years of ski shaping, The Slacker is Levinthal’s first foray into a backcountry-focused ski—the J skis The Slacker is a mongrel that blurs the line between uphill capability and everyday performance. And the topsheet is an ode to keep skiing fun, because… duh.
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“This is the perfect crossover ski; light, playful and stable. It has great edge-to-edge feel that makes turning feel like buttering bread with a warm knife. These skis can lay trenches and love to be turned.”
