Previously known as the Al Dente, the Armada Edollo has remained a staple freestyle-oriented all-mountain ski ever since its inception seven years ago. Being Henrik Harlot’s pro model, the Edollo has been designed to take on whatever Henrik can throw its way: from beatings in the park to backcountry kicker sessions.
Armada Edollo Build
To be able to survive a lifetime in the park with Henrik, Armada has built the Edollo like a tank – featuring Armada’s thickest steel edges and toughened base construction. The edges have been made from a beefed-up 2.2mm heat treated impact edge.
Then, topping the edges are Armada’s AR75 sidewalls. This name is in reference to the 75% of the sidewall that’s made from a powerful, and durable, semi-cap construction. The other 25% in the tips and tails feature a fully protective cap construction which also saves on weight. Armada has covered this sidewall in impact-resistant ABS running from tip to tail. This ABS also dampens the underfoot section for hard landings.
This is the exact same edge and sidewall construction used on the ARV 106 we reviewed in last year’s Ski 100. That’s no bad thing, mind. The ARV 106 was an impressively durable ski that could happily survive a blast through the park.
