Snicker all you want, but the moniker has meaning: it’s named after the unisex (and much-loved) JJ. Armada just had to go there. In powder, the lightweight wood core gives the VJJ energetic bounce, while carbon in the tail offers leverage if you wheelie out. On harder snow, the camber underfoot lets you pivot quickly, but once up on its edges the VJJ carves with an even flex. At 115 millimeters at the waist, this pure powder tool is a go-to for heli and cat operations or on western resorts with endless fresh lines. 126/136/115/133/123
