  • Low stability in anything other than powder
  • Not confident on hard snow
  • Skis short
THE VERDICT

Young rippers who like to straightline and surf will enjoy this ski. Technical skiers should keep looking.

FULL REVIEW

Armada’s JJ 2.0 earned good–but not superior–marks for float, and also had at least one tester saying, “It’s quick in tight trees and has great swingweight.” The majority of people who skied were hoping for some stability, however, and felt the ski lost confidence in any on-pisted conditions, whether that be the bumps or the groomed.

Armada skiers who have the luxury of reliable soft snow, and young rippers who are turned off by technical proficiency will enjoy this ski.
