Justin "Juice" Kennedy x J Collab
You don’t need to know Justin Kennedy to understand why they call him “Juice”. Watch him ski and you’ll be calling him the same! Growing up in Boise, Idaho, Juice night skied daily after school, hot lapping Bogus Basin’s park where he fine tuned his unique high energy, smooth style, that earned him a spot in Level 1 SuperUnknown event alongside the best skiers in the world.
Skiing is only half of what makes Juice special. He hustles just as hard off the hill, giving back to the sport with his “Onslaught Crew” who’ve spent the better part of the past 10 years traveling in a van shooting ski videos and putting on ski film tours to inspire thousands of other local skiers. They even convinced the City of Boise to shut down a road for days so they can build a huge gap jump in the middle of the street and throw backflips off it, with fireworks shooting off their skis to entertain and inspire the entire town each New Year's Eve! When winter ends, that’s when the fun starts for Juice, making trips to all of the summer ski destinations to coach kids at ski camps and empower the next generation of skiers to follow their passion. Juice spends his off-snow time rollerblading, dirt biking, mountain biking and wakeboarding - this kid does it all!
Juice came to us with this insane graphic idea, and collaborated with our in-house creative director, Fank, to bring this mind blowing psychedelic vision to life. Stare at it long enough and you may discover the secret ingredient to the juice…
I’m building only 350 pair of this graphic on "The Allplay" ski, so grab your pair before this juice storm passes you by!
Redesigned! The mid-width ski in our Play Collection is new and improved with added carvability to compliment the buttery, surfy feel.
For our 10 Year Anniversary we’ve completely redesigned the original ski that started it all! In 2013, The Allplay skyrocketed us into the skiing stratosphere, immediately earning it a cult following as the most playful ski on the market and continues to be our #1 selling ski a decade later.
J skis was founded on the philosophy that there’s always room to improve, so J team rider and lead ski engineer Giray Dadali spent the past two years on a mission to expand The Allplay’s legendary, playful feel into an even more funner time when carving around the mountain. This secret new recipe incorporates a tighter sidecut geometry, refined rocker profile, and slightly narrower 97mm waist working in unison with its legendary “deep flex.” This magical new design will launch you into carves easier, grip stronger, butter longer, and slash smoother than any ski you’ve ever ridden before. The catch-free tips guarantee an effortless and forgiving feel, so you can surf freely while never having to worry about catching an edge again. The GOAT maintains it’s one-of-a-kind flex we all love, flexing deeeeep underfoot to arc turns and give a true butter like you’ve never felt before. You’ll go from killing corduroy, to snaking tight trees, to busting 3-swaps like Sam Zahner all in the same run! Everywhere on the mountain these new and improved skis are guaranteed to be no work… ALL PLAY!

This ski is kind of a big deal!
Butters, slashes and presses feel natural on The Allplay thanks to its softer, yet intuitive, consistent flex pattern.
- Blister Gear Review
An absolute joy to ride; don't think, just play.
- Freeskier Magazine
A fun and playful ski that's at home carving, buttering and slashing soft snow.
- Backcountry Magazine
If 'Funskiing' were a test category, these would be at the top of the list.
- Powder Magazine
I’ve skied on dozens of skis and I could tell within 2 runs these were going to be great fun and easy to get along with.
The Finest Materials
Carbon Fiber Construction
By selling these skis factory direct to you, we're able to invest more money into using the highest quality materials possible for a game-changing level of premium performance & durability.
Lighter with more energy & pop than fiberglass
Just like fiberglass carbon needs to be fully stretched like a guitar string to give you the most pop. Unlike other brands of skis with wavy black carbon, not stretched, thus you’re not getting the energy out of it, we use pre-cured, pre-stretched carbon fiber laminates. This means the carbon is pre-stretched & cured under perfect conditions at the carbon fiber production facility prior to us receiving it. This pre-cured carbon laminate is twice the cost but also gives you many more times the performance. You’ll feel it!
Maple Wood Core
Highest quality wood for a lively energetic feel & long life
The factory is located in Quebec Canada, so we got Maple, eh! Maple is a very expensive high quality hard wood, thus the reason it’s used to build floors and furniture in your house that lasts a lifetime. Maple absorbs impact, and has a ton of energy for a very ski feel and long life. We run 4 – 20mm wide Maple laminates the entire length of the core, plus 100% under your foot for unprecedented energy, durability & binding screw retention. At the tips of my skis you’ll see more of the light colored Aspen which is incredibly lightweight with plenty strong when laminated alongside Maple for reduced swing weight at the tips.
Full Height Sidewalls
Maximum impact resistant & vibration dampening
We’re using super durable, high impact absorbing Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethylene for our sidewalls. This is the same material we use on our ski's bases. It’s very impact resistant and since it’s full height, it also absorbs more vibration like using a longer spring in your car’s suspension. Take a metal pipe and hit it against a rock, then do the same with a piece of plastic. The metal vibrates through to your bones & the plastic absorbs the vibration for you. That’s the difference of having full height plastic shock absorbing sidewalls over your edges or not. We’re cutting the sides of the sidewalls to a 10* angle, with a nice step at the bottom for easy tuning like race skis.
Extra Thick Edge
The thickest, most durable edge in the industry
We use the thickest hardened steel edges in the industry 2.2mm x 2.5mm. More metal = more durable. Whether you’re accidentally hitting a rock or purposely sliding a rail, you’re edges will live a much longer life. You’ll also be able to re-tune many more times or file them round to slide rails longer.
High Performance Base
The fastest, thickest, most durable base material
I don’t match my clothes, but I always match my base & edge. We use the thickest edge so I also use the thickest base in the industry 1.8mm. I use sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene, the highest quality base material available. It absorbs wax better, slides faster, and is more durable than any other base material. Basically it’s super hard & fast, like your _______ likes it.
Fibers run in 4 directions to maximize energy & strength
Fiberglass works like a guitar string, when it is flexed it wants to spring back, that’s the energy or pop you feel in a ski. However this energy can only be applied in the direction the actual fiberglass is run. This means the more directions of fiberglass, the more energy, pop & responsiveness. Industry standard “Triaxial” fiberglass runs in only three directions, we use a Quasi Isotropic fiberglass configuration, same as the aerospace industry to maximize energy & strength in as many directions as possible, 4 different axis 0, 90, +45, -45. It costs more, but it’s worth the performance.
