Manufacturers description
The JJ now has a longer turning radius, with the widest points moved out for more stability and effective edge. Maintaining our patented 5 dimensional sidecut and EST Freeride Rocker, the JJ is the most nimble and versatile powder ski on the market. Built with more gradual taper than the original, the new JJ has better flotation at slower speeds and better control in steep terrain. JP's influence lives on forever in this ski. We love you JP.

Strenghts:
Super playful - hold solid egde on groomers - swing weight is very low - can take a solid beating - rocker give a lot of float in the deep POW - steezy graphics and base - the ultimate free ski

Weaknesses:
i skied them for 15 days straight and yet to find anything wrong

Summary:
bought these skis expecting another heavy pow ski that provides a lot of float in the pow but no good anywhere else on the mountain........ i was DEAD WRONG
these skis will do anything and go anywhere. they are so playful because of the rocker that stops edge catching when butting but with camber underfoot you still have a really surprising amount of control on groomers.
these skis can also handle the park really well.

i have the 185cm ones and they are perfect for me
if i had to choose 1 ski for the rest of my life the Armada JJ would be that ski!!!!!!!!

Strenghts:
Light for their size.
Tight spaces is where they excel

Weaknesses:
Ridicuously unstable on hardpack. Like snowblades.
Small sweet spot, you need to keep perfect fore-aft balance
Slow base. My friend on his unwaxed Kuro constantly overtook me on low degree terrain.
Not a ski for charging, I ski much faster on my other pow skis both on and off piste.

Summary:
A groundbreaking concept ski when it came. Now there are so many other better options out there.

I swapped this for a Bibby Pro, and my friends no longer have to wait for me.

For a small guy I think it can work, but I still think this ski was just a step in the evolution to something better.

Model year: 2011

Strenghts:
Good flow
Slightly Curved
Works surprisingly well in the piste
Works to go with
Playful

Weaknesses:
Need a lot of pace in order to get rid of it

Summary:
I have used these for three seasons. Two seasons in Åre and one in Canada. Working in Åre if the snow is there can be a bit in the broadest sense for my taste. Swing in Canada! Run the resort skiing, "slack-country" tours, longer trip (3-4h from car to top) and they worked clockwise !! Good response in turns, works at high and low speed (in powder snow) and if you want to build backcountry jump and throw tricks, that's no problem!
Favorite side so far!

Strenghts:
Playful also works in the piste even if it is not really meant for it.
Slightly Curved

Weaknesses:
Properties in hard pist (surprise, surprise)

Summary:
I went on JJ for half a day in Andermatt and got to test on a pistil, an open piste and an offpiste. It works everywhere but it obviously shines off the piste. The short swing radius makes it really playful.
It is noticeable that it has been updated but the features are recognized on the whole.

Model year: 2015
Riding style: Piste / Pillow: 60/40. Aggressive yoke style.
Length on the ski: 185 cm
Riders weight: 84 kg
Riders length: 183 cm

Strenghts:
-Lätta
-Lättåkta
Never stuck in the snow but can be twisted around anyway
-Man comes down everywhere, good top ski slopes when you risk a rough terrain.

Weaknesses:
-Broms in pillows, requires high speed for surfing.
- Hard to get in the edges if it's hard, getting to paralelväng, but who runs the pist ...
-Flower in hard snow and high speed. Inga Katana directly ...

Summary:
Fun skiing that works mostly offpiste. Do not buy them if you are the most burner pist or should be fastest on the slopes. Buy them if you love to ride that really cramped offpiste among the trees in Swedish plants.

I have mounted my boot center on the line, feeling quite right with telis.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Telemark. Off-piste. Like tight skis in woods and among rocks.
Length on the ski: 185 cm
Riders weight: 85 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Terrific playful skiing for forests / cushions! Also works in the piste even though they are not its strength. Really nice pop in the skis, get easy height by pushing on hills and crests!

Weaknesses:
Not made for the heaviest riders, imagine the tails can fold if it is put too much weight backwards.
If you're a bit flattering in the piste, keep it on track and you're fine!

Summary:
I'm really pleased with my last season, however, spent the winter in Canada which really is the right element for this type of ski. Can not comment on the Nordic climate.
Also enjoyed a lot of JJ and a couple of Duke, who worked well for shorter day trips. If you have a tie other than Duke, the ski can perform even better, weighing about 4.08 kilos together.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Pillows / Day trips before piste
Length on the ski: 185 cm
Riders weight: 70 kg
Riders length: 178 cm

Strenghts:
Incredible lightning in the woods
Floating in the powder
The short swing radius makes them cannonball in the piste
Light and amazing playful

Weaknesses:
Bredlagg flags at high speed in piste
Mine released in the bond between the undercoat and overcoated, the third JJ skirt I look at this

Summary:
A wonderful ski that works all over the mountain, however, I would say it is the best in the forest because of its ease and the short swing radius that allows you to throw around the one you want.
Best ski I went on, BUY BUY BUY!

A very good skiing! Have tried my friends Hellbent, Kuro and Chopsticks - but it hits everyone, something my friends agree with! Have run it in 50 cm powder for "hard" piste. It tackles everything great! Flies like a god! Very fun to have in BC-jump too. The graphics are not too bad, it likes more and more:

Weaknesses:
- ice cream

Best skiing in the whole world!
