Elf Shoe Tech is Armada's shape/design name for ski's with rocker in the tip, regular camber underfoot and rocker in the tail.. The JJ has reagular camber and sidecut within the reverse sidecut design of the ARG..
More and more companies make ski's like the JJ with rocker in the tip and tail en camber underfoot.. Only Armada says they have sidecut within reverse sidecut, other companies say their design have early taper..
So its not like sierra_steeze says that elf shoe tech is the same as line's early rise or early taper.., its a combo..
Other ski's that work the same (that I know of) are the 4FRNT CRJ, K2 Obsethed, Bibby Pro, Bentchetler, and some more.. Who can name more of these models?
Well elf shoe is not only rocker + reverse sidecut/early taper, but you should not forget the regular (little) camber underfoot, else it would be rocker - flat - rocker, like the EP pro.. Thats why those ski's are so nice.. great in pow and trees, but also good on hard snow and in crud!!
