They say

We say

This ski has plenty of character, getting loads of response from our testers. It's very easy to use in powder both in short and long turns, the rockered shape and good width underfoot making it the perfect backcountry ski. The VJJ is very adaptable, feeling comfortable and playful whatever conditions it runs into. On steeper terrain that soft flex gives it less of a secure feeling and on piste it really doesn't work that well. However for playful backcountry skiing in a mix of conditions this is a great choice.

Tester Comments

Rowena Phillips
Easy to use, turns when you want it to, at fast or slow speeds. Very adaptable in all off piste conditions
Amanda Pirie
Fun off piste really easy to use, but hard to turn on piste, you end up just skidding around
