J Says Best For: Hardpack / Fresh snow / Trees / Moguls / All-mtn

Waist Width: 92mm

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 Artwork

David Langevin x J Collab

Hailing from British Columbia painter David Langevin draws his inspirations from his seemingly endless raw natural surroundings. Once I discovered David I knew his Baroque style landscapes would be the perfect fit. I love the Larches piece because it reminds me of being down by the river soaking in the foliage while gazing way up into the mountains dreaming about the approaching ski season.

I'm building only 450 pair of these Limited Edition skis and hand-signing and numbering each, so grab a new pair before they 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!’
