What J Skis says about the Joyride

“At 90mm underfoot it rips quick turns, supported by a long camber and minimal rocker that grips firm snow without even trying. The Joyride’s lively flex will pop you in and out of turns and have you playing all over the mountain like you’re in a video game, about to get the high score! Our signature Maple wood core, full height sidewall and extra thiccc base and edge has got your back… you’ve never experienced durability like this before! The Joyride is also available in the largest size range we’ve ever offered, from 140-182cm, so kids, teens, adults and extraterrestrials can all enjoy the ride. Whether you’re just getting into skiing, or on your way to the X Games, you’ll be gripping, ripping, poppin, bumpin, butterin, and slayin the resort, having more fun with less effort than ever before. Enjoy the ride!”

  1. I know this is a “park ski” but I took a chance and got my wife the 160 Joyride last year to try and replace her long loved Black Pearls. I loved the graphics and pulled the trigger. She loves this ski!! Better than Black Pearl which surprised me. Easy to turn, stable for her. So not just a park ski. Intermediate skiers could love this ski as a daily driver.

    • Phill,, Thanks for posting this, I was thinking the same thing for my wife. Out of curiosity do you know what length the Black Pearl’s she was skiing?
