Arguably Armada's signature ski, the JJ is intended as a versatile powder tool. It uses Armada's EST Freeride Rocker, a blend of tip-and-tail rocker and positive camber, for maximum float without major sacrifices to hard-snow performance, and a measure of bi-directional skiability. The aggressive tip-and-tail taper and a tight turn radius improve maneuverability and smeariness in deeper snow but limit the effective edge when in a full carve. Lengths range from 165 to 195 cm. Waist widths range from 115 to 120 mm.
