The Hotshot takes all of the playful fun of last season’s J Skis’ The Metal ski, and adds in even more forgiveness and ease-of-use. New school skiers will be stoked on the Hotshot’s shape and vitality. With two strips of Titanal and an all-maple wood core, this ski will also please many traditional skiers thanks to its lively demeanor. Just as long as skiers don’t go too fast, the Hotshot is sure to please just about everyone. 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Forgiveness

WEAKNESSES: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity
