Alpine Ski Armada Magic J

Better sit down before reading the following. This is Armada's Magic J, a fat (not to say ultra fat) ski designed holy powder days when it's been dumping so much that snowcats couldn't even groom the trails. It is wide and wild, made for surfing powder and nothing else. How wide? Half a snowboard. Yup, 125mm at the waist in 180cm, the Magic J is a beast. Add to it oversized tip and tail rockers to keep you afloat and steer through the deep with ease and you get the ultimate backcountry weapon for shredding, stomping and slashing.  

What can the Armada Magic J ski do? 

Right, let's get this straight. The Magic J is not a carver, it is not a ski you'll take for goofing groomers. Its rockers, its width and its 20m turning radius compromise stability on hard snow and make the ski a bit bulky. It is not impossible to lay clean turns on piste but you do need skills to do so. The ski's favourite playground is obviously the backside of the mountain, where the snow is deep and where there are no tracks. It is the perfect ski for riding in legendary spots like Mammoth mountain or Baldface Lodge or for hitting the bottomless snow in Japan. The Magic J completely re-defines floatation and buoyancy, a good reminder of laws of physics, and it's a great toy for sending the most incredible tricks off natural booters.  

Who is the Armada Magic J ski designed for? 

Oversized ski for riders with oversized ambitions. If your technique is flawless, if your legs are strong and if you are looking for a powder-specific ski to get your freestyle game up a notch in the backcountry, then the Magic J belongs to your quiver.

Type of turns

  • Long turns


  • Bidirectional (twin tip)  :

    The ski shape allows to ski forward or backward.

Structure - Construction

  • AR50 Sidewalls  :

    ABS sidewall meets cap construction – the best of both worlds. This engineering method combines the lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot, resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.

  • Ultralight Core  :

    A combination of lightweight woods throughout and hardwood laminates underfoot, the Hybrid Ultra-lite Core created the ultimate in agility and maneuverability without sacrificing any security or dampness underfoot.

  • Laminate matrix  :

    We know from the core out exactly how each ski should react, so three kinds of fiberglass laminates are used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski. The permutations of the three fiberglasses are nearly limitless and allow us to precision tune the performance of every ski we make.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.


  • EST Freeride Rocker  :

    Rockered tip and tail combined to a positive camber under the foot for a better floatation on soft snow and a better edge hold.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.


  • 50/50 Base  :

    As the name implies, the 50/50 is faster than the S7 and more rugged than the Comp Series.

  • 1.7 impact edge  :

    The edge height and width is deliberately smaller and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight

Ski Binding Atomic STH2 N 16 WTR B130 Black Orange

The Atomic STH² 16 WTR is a low-built freeski binding – built specially for wide powder and park & pipe skis. Its high-impact steel housing stands up against the most punishing skiing, while the shock-absorbing Progressive Transfer Pads cushion the hardest landings. The Oversized Platform enables you to transfer more power to the ski while the self-retracting Freeski Brakes come into their own on switch landings and in soft snow, eliminating hang-ups and drag on powder. The height-adjustable STH² 16 WTR is compatible with WTR soles, and stepping into the binding is easy even in deep powder. Finally, a maximum release value of 16 makes this the ideal binding for aggressive skiers.
