$599 $729.00

J Says Best For: Packed powder / Touring / Backcountry / Trees

Waist Width: 102mm

1) Look at the size of your current skis and consider if you like the length or prefer shorter or longer.

2) Remember that 2-3 cm is not going to make a huge difference. Over 5cm will start to make a difference in feel.

The chart below is for general reference based on your height, but you should also consider these other factors. . . 

Choose LONGER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too small
- Want to ski faster & float better
- Are a heavier person so want more stability
- Are an expert, aggressive skier

Choose SHORTER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too long
- Want easier maneuverability & float in powder is less important
- Are a light weight person and want more maneuverability
- Are a beginner, casual skier

The Future x J Collab

We’ve been developing this new ski for next season and decided to built a few extra pair of prototypes to give you a rare opportunity to ski them now, before they’re released to the public next winter. This prototype is built with all of the same badass construction and geometry you’ll find in next year’s skis, but with our rare blacked out prototype graphic. (Note: This version of The Escalator does not have a notch in the tail.)

The image of the rocket represents our ahead of time engineering, and the fingers crossed 🤞 is for extra good luck the ski will perform and come back to earth like we intended. We also always write the Research & Development code on the tip to identify the version. This version out performed dozens of other variations and is ready for blast off!

It’s a very rare find, that’s waaaay ahead of it’s time, so grab yours before they’re gone for good! There's less than 50 pair available in size 182cm at a special early release prototype price of $599. These skis are not elligible for additional discounts, i.e. "prodeal"

The Escalator™

132 - 102 - 123

The Escalator is easy up, easy down… you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

This lightweight ski pulls double duty for dawn patrol touring and as your daily driver hot lapping the resort. The secret ingredient is a combo of a super light Aspen core paired with our classic downhill ski construction for a solid feel regardless of snow conditions. Its 102mm waist perfectly fits into every skier’s quiver as a do-it-all tool that’s as comfortable laying down quick, snappy carves on firm groomers as it is surfing fresh snow in tight trees or wide-open pow fields. The Escalator's ridiculously light swing weight feels like there’s nothing on your feet, so your legs stay happier longer, letting you shred stronger from first chair to last call. A subtle tail notch provides reliable skin clip retention integrated into a legit twin-tip shape for badass street cred passing people on the way up… and down!
