The third generation of the cult-classic JJ has arrived by way of the 2018 ARV 116 JJ. How do you improve on what's already one of the most prolific powder skis in the game? A culmination of feedback from the first 2 iterations of JJs has led Armada to move the contact point behind the ski's widest point in order to create more consistent turn initiation in deep snow. What's more, they've also implemented a new 3D base technology called "Smear Tech" that delivers the smoothest, most surf-like experience yet. Whether you're looking for dedicated pow sticks or you're bringing a freestyle approach to bigger, natural terrain, the revamped ARV 116 JJ will undoubtedly bring some mad, mad steeze to your snow sliding endeavors (And yes, MadSteez is back on artwork duty for the 2018 ARV!)
