In only its second year of production, the CRJ Signature Model designed by CR Johnson will see a run of only 200 pairs built in two sizes (180, 188) for this limited model.

The CRJ is best described by CR himself: ” The 4FRNT CRJ is my first REAL pro model. I worked with an engineer for two months to develop the break through: Half normal camber and sidecut, half reverse camber and sidecut shape. This ski has revolutionized the sport of skiing for me, by opening up a whole world of ways a ski can perform. Skiing will never be the same for me and I have never been having so much fun. “
