Since it hit the market, the JJ has been immensely popular with the freeride- and freestyle-type skiers, especially the younger ones. That’s because it’s lightweight, quick, and poppy thanks to the generous tip and tail rocker. It’s primarily a soft snow ski but it has the ability to get around the entire mountain because of the camber and sidecut underfoot. The AK JJ is no different except it comes with a slightly stiffer flex, slightly wider dimensions, and is only available in a 195-centimeter length. It’s designed for more advanced skiers.
