If you simply want the best back and sidecountry ski available, the Armada
JJ Skis + Salomon Z12 Demo Bindings are without question for you. Patented EST Freeride Rocker and the UltraLight core combine to produce the most balanced big ski on the market. It handles blower pow with ease, transitions to busted crud without shifting gears, and it will carve a turn that will leave you speechless.
EST Freeride Rocker is simply the best of all worlds: rockered tips and tails combined with positive camber underfoot to promote floatation in soft snow and provide remarkable edge control in the harder stuff.
Flex Pattern: tip - 6, waist - 7, tail - 6.5 (out of 10)
The Hybrid UltraLight core is made up of select 375kg/m3 wood stringers that have unusually high strength-to-weight ratios so the JJ maintains a light but stable feel. ABS layers are pre-installed alongside the core directly underfoot to concentrate the weight of the ski below the boot sole to increase durability and lower swing weight.
A blend of Carbon/Kevlar stringers run the tail of the ski to stabilize it, creating a better landing platform, increased snap and added pop.
With an AR50 side wall, the ABS sidewall meets Cap construction, combining lightweight Cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot for enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.
The 50/50 base is rugged and fast.
The JJ has a 1.7 edge, with a deliberately smaller height and width, increased durability, and decreased weight.
