The Masterblaster™ "Scavenger" Graphic

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting. On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming, and the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor. Shall be lifted—nevermore!    The Raven - Edgar Allan Poe

I'm building only 150 pair of these Limited edition skis and hand signing and numbering each. Grab a pair before these one-of-a-kind skis sell out. You'll be one of only 150 skiers in the world with these rare J's on your feet!

Powerful, ultra responsive precision on firm snow that's equally fun & playful beyond the groomers

The “Masterblaster” is my newest ski, and has won awards from every magazine test it entered! I engineered it with ultra quick race-like handling and precision yet a unique split personality that’s also incredibly fun and playful when you get it in the powder. Unlike my other skis, it has a directional shape with a lower tail so there's more edge length in contact with the snow for the most grip possible on groomers. All of this is backed by my unique metal laminate construction for extra power and responsiveness when charging hard. If you liked the "Prophet" ski, think of this as it's new and improved mind blowing replacement! #JMasterblasterSki

    Rocker Matching Sidecut™

    Unlike other rockered skis, we carefully match our rocker geometry with our sidecut geometry. To accomplish this perfect match, we blend multiple size radii into one smooth parabolic curve from the end of the camber to the very tip, like a surfboard.

    This creates a much smoother tip shape that has no abrupt kinks, flat spots or awkward changes for the best of both worlds! The rockered tips effortlessly surf and float in powder, while the edge length in contact with snow is dramatically increased to improve grip and reduce tip chatter and bounce. You won’t believe how precise and effortless your skis feel from the hard pack to the pow!

    Titanal Metal Laminate

    More power & stability where you need it!
    Unique to this model ski, I'm using a titanal metal laminate on the top and bottom of the core. Instead of running it edge to edge, tip to tail, I've optimized the metal laminate’s geometry & location running only narrow strips down the center and ending it before the tips. This way there's enough metal to dramatically increase power, stability & dampening over the length of the ski in contact with the snow, however the tips are lighter for dramatically reduced swing weight to maintain a nimble, lively & fun feel. You'll notice the tail of the ski metal geometry has slightly less metal to allow for a more playful and forgiving exit out of your turns while the tip has more for powerful initiation and reduced chatter in the tips. You'll feel like you're on a GS race ski when you're carving it up, yet be shocked how fun & nimble it feels in tight trees, chutes and even the bumps. Enjoy!

    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 witch 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 isdes of the sidewalls to a 10* angle, with a nice step at the bottom for easy tuning like race skis.

    Thickest 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.

    Sintered 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.

    Rubber Laminate

    Absorbs vibration and dramatically reduces risk of delam
    Think of a ski’s construction like a magazine, each page = layers of material in the ski. Then bend your magazine you’ll see every page slide against each other, this is “shear”. This shear force trys to separate, thus delaminate all the layers in your ski every time it’s flexed or the tips are slapped down on a jump landing. This is why I run a layer of thin rubber around the full perimeter of the ski over the entire edge, plus the full width of across the tip and tail. The rubber acts as an insulator so that the edge and other materials can slide against each other when flexing without delaminating. This dramatically improves durability & reduces vibration.

    Quasitropic Fiberglass

    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.

    High Definition Digital Printing

    You already know I put a lot of value in graphics! So instead of traditional silk screening with low resolution image quality, you’ve seen the dots! I’m using a state of the art, Fuji UV Flat bed printer, a $170,000 machine that enables me to print high resolution from my computer directly to the plastic top & base. The resolution is unbelievable photo-real so you’ll be one of few skiers in the world with skis looking this good on your feet.

    Freeskier Mag Editors' Pick 2017 - Masterblaster

    "Much like the dual-bodied character from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome that shares its name, the Masterblaster has what J calls a “split personality.” It burns down groomers like a Formula One racecar but is maneuverable and playful when called upon. A rigid maple wood core with a strip of Titanal..." Read more >

    Powder Magazine Skiers Choice 2017 - Masterblaster

    "New from J skis, the Masterblaster is fast, maneuverable, and simply, really fun. Made with maple wood core, the strip of titanal in this nimble ski is only six centimeters wide and tapers out before the tip-rise, making it easy to initiate edge-to-edge turns and..." Read more >
