Armada updated the JJ (hence the JJ 2.0) with a longer turning radius (16 m at 175 cm) and a bit wider waist. Armada also pushed the widest point on the ski closer to the tip and tail to give the ski more contact with the snow for better hard-snow performance while retaining its powder-specific float and smearability. Armada uses its Hybrid Ultralight (poplar and ash combo) core in the JJ 2.0 to keep weight down, and uses its AR50 hybrid construction. The construction uses cap construction in the tip and tail for lighter weight and increased durability, while using sandwich construction through the middle of the ski for increased performance and edge hold.
