Heyman's review: Advanced freeride skier

Reviewer Heyman

"Fat skis that are made just for deep deep powder days. The wider the better, preferably with a full rocker profile to get that surfing feeling. Floatation and maneuverability are key factors. Performance on hard pack is of no importance."

Freeride beast for bottomless powdersnow


The Armada AKJJ 2014 is the bigger brother of the very succesfull Armada JJ, The AKJJ is only available in 195cm, but don't let that put you off, because it is a fantastic freeride ski. Because of its length this ski wants to go fast and make big turns. But the AKJJ is so light, that you can make shorter turns as well. Steer into the woods and you'll come out alive. Obviously the immense surface of this ski gives it tremendous float. That gets you that wonderfull surfy feeling when you hit the deep powder zone.

The Armada AKJJ 2015 is a bit different, called AKJJ 2.0, tested and reviewed by Yellow Gentian as well.

Float and agility

The AKJJ has a very big rockered tip and tail, which makes it easy to turn even in the deepest snow and surprisingly agile for a ski this wide. In the middle however the ski has a little camber, which is not common in freeride skis. This camber ensures great stability at any speed level. It also ensures that on the piste you get back to the lift in one piece. The Armada AKJJ handles chopped-up snow pretty well, but it really comes into its own in bottomless powder snow. This ski suits all the advanced and expert freeride addicts that love to surf the big mountain. If it's float and agility you want, the Armada AKJJ certainly is the ski to have.

Armada about the AKJJ

"First introduced in the 11/12 season, the AK JJ is an amped up version of the traditional JJ. Offered in 195 cm the AK JJ has a longer turning radius and is slightly stiffer than the traditional JJ. This ski is ready to charge big lines in Alaska or at your home hill.", says Armada. Being available only in 195cm the Armada AKJJ is suited for the powerful skier. If you don't have enough power and weight, this ski will control you instead of the other way around.

Related skis

Salomon Rocker2 122: certainly has similar qualities as the Armada AKJJ. But I found the Salomon a little less stable. Also the AKJJ has a radius of only 18m, where the Salomon has a staggering radius of 26m, which makes it less agile.
Rossignol Super 7: more versatile. Super 7 gives comfort on (chopped-up) groomers.
Salomon Rocker2 108: has less float, but is more versatile and performs better on-piste.
