Ripping chicks loved the old VJJ Women's Ski for its floatation, easy handling, and surfy feel, but Armada felt like they'd love it even more with a few tweaks, so it redesigned the sidecut to add a more gradual taper in the tip and tail, making the VJJ 2. 0 even lighter, more stable, and easier to control than the original. It still floats over pow with that loose feel you'd expect, courtesy of the rockered tip and tail and 115mm waist, but the decreased taper gives it slightly more stability at speed and increased edge contact for easier turns in pow and on hardpack, letting you hit the throttle without sketching out. The 2. 0 also keeps the EST Freeride Rocker profile underfoot camber and generous tip and tail rocker of the original VJJ, letting you hammer groomers, charge through crud, and rip chop on your way back to the lift, so you don't have to choose your runs based on which ones have the mellowest runout or smoothest snow. No one would blame you if you mounted the VJJ 2. 0 up with touring bindings, either, since it's built on a Hybrid Ultralight wood core and forgoes metal in favor of a lively and light fiberglass laminate matrix that keeps the weight manageable while making the ski feel poppy and torsionally stiff when you're driving a hard edge. Armada's AR50 half cap construction also keeps the ounces to a minimum and the edging power boosted by using sidewalls underfoot and a cap in the tip and tail, so you can rally big lines and get jibby without sacrificing stability. The VJJ 2. 0 has a lightning quick Comp Series sintered base, too, along with rugged 1. 7mm Impact edges that can take a licking and keep on biting into tough snow when you need to make that photographer pleasing slash.
