Armada VJJ Skis - Women's 2014

The JJ's not-so-little sisters, the Armada VJJ Skis, are the most versatile women's specific powder skis on the market. Rocking out with an EST Freeride Rocker profile, the VJJ wreaks havoc on deep snow and eats hardpack for breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND fourth meal. The Ultralight Core and AR50 Sidewall keep the skis light yet super durable, so you won't have any issues getting loose on these ladies.
Rocker Type
EST Freeride Rocker - The best of all worlds. Rockered tips and tails combined with positive camber underfoot to promote flotation in soft snow and provide remarkable edge control on the harder stuff.
 
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Tip - 6, Waist - 7, Tail - 6.5
 
Sidecut
Five-Point Shape - Sizes - 165 cm/175 cm: Tip - 126 mm/126 mm, Contact Point - 136 mm/136 mm, Waist - 115 mm/115 mm, Contact Point - 133 mm/133 mm, Tail - 123 mm/123 mm
Shape
Tapered tip and tail
Core
Hybrid Ultralight Core - Lightweight woods with high strength to weight ratios
 
Laminates
Laminate Matrix - Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.
Sidewalls
AR50 Sidewall - With cap in the tip and tail and sidewall under foot, this construction balances performance characteristics for lower swing-weight and increased durability.
Base
Comp Series Base - Armada's fastest base
Edges
1.7 Impact Edge - Light, strong, and heat treated for durability
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
