2012 Armada JJ Description

What kind of ski do you want the 2012 Armada JJ to be? Because frankly my friends it can do anything you ask it to. Long story short, it’s an all-mountain/quiver of one that can take you anywhere you want to go. Two feet of fresh overnight fell you say? Take the JJ. Skinning into the backcountry to get away from the crowds and hitting up some 3-day old pow? Here, use these JJ’s. Groomer fest becasue there hasn’t been new snow in the last two weeks? Yep...the Armada JJ’s got your back. No matter where you are on the learning curve, the JJ has something to offer. To the person who wants an all-in-one ski they can ride every day of the year. To the powder hound who only leaves their room for the white room. And to the resort town local who spends more time in the backcountry than Jeremiah Johnson. This is your ski.

Armada’s EST Freeride Rocker, consisting of rocker in both the wide tip and tail of the ski give you the ability to float and track through pow with minimal effort. While the Camber underfoot and balance of the ski’s weight keep the control in your hands when charging through the chunks. And don’t forget about Armada’s AR50 Sidewalls (half ABS Sidewall/half cap construction), Ultralight woodcore, and CK (Carbon Kevlar) stringers. Features that make the JJ super light, super stable, and super playful. Talk about qualities you’d be proud to take home to Mom and Dad.

So if you you’re in the mood to slash and burn some pow, rail on some fresh cut cords, and play like a kid in the ball pit again...go with the 2012 Armada JJ. Hell, I’ve even seen em’ hanging around the park.

SkiersRealm Official Review:

Stepping into the bindings on the JJ's, I immediately notice their similarity to the Rossignol S7's. Compare the two, I'm sure you'll notice the commonalities in the dimensions and shapes. It's by no means the same ski, but just something you pick up on. The JJ is a light ski, which I personally love. I'm alway looking for my skis to be light weight because I'm into making tight turns in the trees whenever possible. Now if you can get a pair of light weights like the JJ's to ski like a heavier/bigger mountain ski then you've got yourself a ski to get pumped on. The perfect example of this I think is Atomic's Bent Chetler. However, the JJ wasn't far behind on the BC's heels. I easily felt like I could take the JJ anywhere the mountain had to offer. On the groomers it was stable at high and low speeds and was responsive when I wanted it to be. I noticed that it wasn't quite aggressive in it's turning as the Super 7's I rode right before the JJ. Meaning, the Super 7's felt like they WANTED to carve just a touch more than the JJ's. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, to me it just means the ski has more play to it. The JJ was more ready to butter, slash and surf than the Super 7's. And if you wanted to get down to business and carve up a storm you absolutely could, you just had to put a bit more effort into it. It was an incredible easy ski to make perform how I wanted it to and I'd say it's sitting very comfortably in the All Mountain category. You could rock the JJ on the deepest powder days and do just fine riding groomers with it all day as well. If you want negatives about it, I'm not sure I can provide for your needs. But I can highlight a few areas where I thought it might have lacked when compared with skis that you might call its competition. For one, the JJ's seemed to be a little slow coming out of their turns on the groomers. I'm talking about when you're really on edge though. It was as if they didn't want to break that hard edge contact which actually gave off a heavy like feeling. Which I know they aren't heavy. Next I noticed that they were a little chattery in the cruddier snow. So think cut up or packed pow and even some ice clumps. The tips just seemed to bounce a bit more than the Super 7's I also rode. Finally, I the JJ's weren't quite as bull dozerish as some of the other skis. Take the Atomic Bent Chetler for example, plowed through everything it seemed. The JJ's weren't terrible, but I think the lightness of the ski made it bounce around a bit more.
