The Artwork

David Hale x J Collab

This is our fourth collaboration with David Hale, his graphics always become some of our most highly sought after skis. David is a legend in the tattoo industry, but is now even more famous for his paintings, prints and large-scale murals. His angled geometric patterns mesh gracefully with the natural landscape, always incorporating different animals, making them mesmerizing to look at. 

David spent much of his childhood outside exploring and inside drawing. As he says, spirits spoke to him along the banks of the muddy creek where he grew up, and he found his best response to be the art made with his hands. Today, he works out of a small, repurposed barn next to his family’s woodland cottage on a creek in Athens, Georgia. 

I'm building only 450 pairs of these Limited edition skis and hand signing and numbering each. Grab a pair before these one-of-a-kind works of art sell out.

The Fastforward™

124 - 92 - 111

The narrowest ski in our Charge Collection for the best grip and precision on firm snow.

"The Fastforward” is designed to empower you to carve ice like a knife through hot butter, while maintaining the fun-loving, playful feel J skis are known for. The subtle tip-rocker keeps you floating with ease in fresh snow, yet when rolled over, 100% of the edge is engaged, including the tip for maximum grip. You get a predictable, smooth feel, that inspires confidence no matter the terrain; it’s as happy feasting on firm morning groomers as it is exploring the rest of the mountain. Unlike other skis in this category, “The Fastforward” doesn’t require you to put all your energy into it to get tons of power out. Thanks to its “Light Metal” Titanal laminate & Maple wood core construction, this ski does the work for you! You’ll gain power and precision with far less effort, so your legs don’t get burned out. You’ll be still going strong at the end of the day when they’re calling “last chair!’

"A wicked playful ski that you can trust-- stiff, with loads of pop."
