Reviewer DellaSausa

"Most of all I want float in a freeride ski. And I like to be able to ski back to the lift in style. That means that the most extreme pure rocker skis are not my favorites. Versatility is key for my freeriding."

Great float and big fun


The Armada JJ 2.0 is a pure 100% off piste freeride ski. This ski is made for having fun in deep snow. It has a great float in the bottemless powder. This ski is quite maneuverable. So off-piste you can make long turns at high speed. A great feeling! And it's also possible to make shorter turns due to its radius. An all-conditions ski that is just as maneuverable as it is stable, the AK JJ is one hell of a freeride ski.

From powder to hard pack

This ski is a pure off piste ski, but sometimes you have to go on piste to get back to the lifts... There it surprised me as you can get some decent turns out of the JJ 2.0 ski. To put this ski on its edges is hard work though! But it was fun jumping on and off-piste. So playing with this ski on the edge between on and off-piste makes it really fun to go back to the lift. After that... go back to the bottemless powder as fast as you can!

Armada about the JJ 2.0

"The ski that changed men’s powder riding forever returns with its trademark flotation, edging and all around faceshot-making, deep-snow-buttering fun. The JJ 2.0 embraces its heritage as one of the most-awarded, and biggest, developmental leaps in skiing history and carries it forward in 16/17.", says Armada. True to me, great float and stable high speed in deep snow.
