A lighter ski that also charges hard, making it the least nerdy touring ski in the world.
The Artwork – Kyler Martz X J Collab
Kyler is an illustrator, tattooer and muralist living in Seattle who’s unique work incorporates traditional tattoo iconography with an old world vibe that truely sets it apart from the rest. You’ll instantly recognize his work on iconic restaurant, hotels and office buildings throughout Seattle. Scope the giant octopus in the lobby of the Ballard PCC, it’s nutz! While looking through his work, this piece with crazy skull birds caught our eye. We love how you just see birds, or it flips on you and just see skulls.
We knew this would be a graphic like nothing we had ever put on a ski before so we spent a lot of time working together to fit it onto the long wide canvas so that it flows naturally from tip to tail with more details to constantly discover every time you look at it.
J-Skis – The Slacker 2022
“The Slacker” is an all-terrain freestyle ski designed with uphill efficiency, while maintaining the solid, intuitive downhill performance J skis are known for. Built with the backcountry in mind, its weight-conscious aspen core construction coupled with maple running over the edges gives it a light yet one-of-a-kind solid feel.
There’s a subtle tail notch in the tail for reliable skin tail clip retention making touring easy without looking like a skimo nerd. We also offer pre-cut Pomoca skins that fit perfectly and are ready to go touring right out of the box! Unlike others, the Slacker is at home ripping around the resort as it is out of bounds, leaving traditional uphill specific skis behind. Smash, surf, play and have more fun adventuring off the beaten path. Go earn ‘em!
