Product Info

New for the 12/13 season, Armada s Magic J Skis are magically sexy with a less tapered, more full-figured shape. The Magic J is the JJ's brawny big brother who hangs at the gym a lot, with a burly 125+ mm waist and with less taper and a slightly longer contact patch. The result is a ski with a longer turning radius that is extremely stable at high speeds, but will still float your boat in sub 10% pow. Magic!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Front and back rocker

Flex

Flex Pattern - Tip: 6.5, Waist: 7.5, Tail: 7 (1=soft; 10=stiff)

Shape

Tapered Tip and Tail5 dimension ski with the tip and tail narrower than the contact points

Dimensions (tip/contact point/waist/contact point/tail)137/142/125/139/133 mm (170), 138/143/126/140/134 mm (180), 139/144/127/141/135 mm (190)

Core

Hybrid Ultralight CoreUltralight core using select wood stringers that have unusually high strength-to-weight ratios, UltraLight cores allow our widest skis to maintain a light-yet-stable feel.

Laminates

Laminate MatrixDeliberate directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity and allows each ski's flex to be precisely tuned. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex; Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski; Tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski.

CK StringerCarbon Kevlar combo stringers lie on top of the laminate matrix along the tail to brace the ski. This increases the landing platform, especially when weight is distributed farther back in the ski than intended. It also gives the ski more pop and extends ski life.

Sidewalls

AR50 Sidewall ConstructionABS sidewall meets cap construction – the best of both worlds. This engineering method combines the lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot, resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.

Base

50/50 BaseA blend of speed and durability, this base is faster than Armada’s S7 base but more rugged than the Comp series.

Edges

1.7 Impact EdgeThe edge height and width is deliberately smaller and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.

Binding Compatibility

Bindings not included

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Armada Magic J Skis 2013:

    I bought the Magic J's to replace my JJ's which I loved so much. The Magic J performs a lot like the JJ, however, the Magic J is like the JJ on steroids. More floatation, more stability, higher speeds - if you like to shred it up in the pow there is seriously no better ski. I highly recommend these! When I'm not using them, I have them displayed in my living room! Buy these babies and you won't regret it!

      These skis are built like a fatter pair of jjs and needless to say seem like they're going to kill it. I own both and and can't wait to try these out! Super light also, to the point that I almost want to throw AT bindings on them.

        Fantastic pair of skis. Much stiffer than the JJ's and the Bent Chetlers. Extremely fun to play around on with enough stiffness to keep you charging hard through even challenging and chopped up terrain.

          The magic js change the way you look at powder. I took them up to baker last weekend in the pow and they were money. Since these were my first reverse sidecut skis it took a while to get used to on the groom but in the powder it was amazing! Really stable off drops and whatever you can throw at. If your considering a wide pow ski look at the magic js for sure.

            These are the sexiest skis on the hill! Not only did Tanner Hall add great graphics onto his ski like the sweet Inspired Media logo and the dopest lion I've ever seen, but these things crush pow and do extremely well on hard pack it doesn't matter what kind of powder you in the Magic J's are killing it! Literally are in love with them to the point I slept with them my first day I rode them. The Magic J is the ski if you want to drop cliffs, hit pillows, throw sick tricks, and float over the deepest of pow.
