this years jj has the ar50 sidewall. this means that there is cap construction in the tip and tail and sandwich construction under the foot. This means that the swing weight will be overall less

not well. consider recommended mounting point back 5 from center. you could get away with a bit above that too.

It is really just personal preference. Some people like to sink into the powder. with the arg youll sink in like an inch and it will be easy to ski. With the jj youll sink in a little more, get more face shots and everything good about powder. But the real thing you have to look at is that it's not going to be those same snow conditions all the way down. Somewhere along the line it will be hardpack or even ice so the jj will be a lot better choice i think.

I used to ski on these 151 park skis but I rented armada arvs last season at 175 and loved them but I wanted something fatter. So I was wondering what size I should get

Hey I have heard that these skis edges rip out pretty easily and I was wondering if salomon made these edges more durable? I was also wondering on how this ski compares to the ar7?

I am 5'7 140 pounds and I am an advanced/expert skiier. I have never heard one bad review about this ski so I want to get it badly. First, I have a pair of armada ar5's in 151 or up to my chin so I am used to a shorter ski. I have had this ski for about three years because I never had enough money to buy one. I was looking to buy this one but I don't know what size to get. I like short buttery skis but Ive heard it skis like crazy short.

I am really giving this a 4.5. I love this ski,
I used it at a ski testing event in northern
Michigan and they were sweet. They were fast and
floated real well with the rocker. I love the
race base and it's even better if you don't have
to tune them. This base is so soft and fragile
you should do a minor tune with like rub on wax
after every day of skiing. Then one hot wax after
every week if you don't want them to be messed up bad.

Ok wow Angus I don't think you answered his question there. The real answer is yes they are fine for big jumps as long as you don't get over 60-70 ft. Sure there are other boards that are better for that, but what this board does on rails makes up for it.

Oh my gosh, these are by far the sickest goggles ever. No nose pinch, more peripheal vision. Also it fits a lttle better than the crowbar with more helmets. The goggle basically looks like the crowbar but when you put it on and ride with it you will notice the difference in the overall quality, not to mention how insanely awesome you will look in it. So basically, you need this goggle. I guess the only bad thing about this goggle is that if you break it somehow which is like a .0001% chance then you will be sad pretty much forever.

While I will not ski on this ski until winter I do know a lot about it. First armada wanted to not change but fine tune and perfect their 2009 models. So the pipe cleaner along with most of the armada line has not been changed this year but they have been lightened in overall weight and they made the swing weight lighter to. When I saw this ski at a store it had an exactly even flex. The race base was also the same as last years which means you can get blistering speeds which in turn means more air off jumps. All in all, if you liked last years pipe cleaner or any armada park/pipe ski then you need to get this one.

I would not center mount them unless you are doing only rails jumps and a ton of switch. I have mine 2.5 cm back and it really doesn't sacrifice any park performance but it gives you much better all mtn. Bottom line is if you do any all mtn don't mount center.

-2 or -1 if you do a lot of switch because it will give you good enough forward stability while not sacrificing switch ability. Never center mount unless you will do 99% switch because you won't be able to ski forward.

Absolutely insane. They are one of the best skis ever made for park. However, it is also great for all mtn. The stiff tail finishes every turn super well. The base also only needs one wax a seaon because it is so durable

i am 5'7 140 and i got the 169 and loved them. They are great for switch riding in pow and even though its not a super fat ski it still floats like one and it does great on the groomer. If you like stiffer skis then I wouldnt get this one it is really soft but still stable.
