The 2022 EDollo is Armada’s flagship park ski and so it’s park performance that really matters and the EDollo remains fairly unique in that aspect. With many park skis stiffening up and/or offering huge amounts of rocker in both tip and tail, the EDollo looks almost more traditional now, but its soft flex and cambered tail offer a different take on the stability vs playfulness compromise.

The full sidecut of the EDollo has always combined well with the cambered tail and fairly mellow rocker in the nose to make for a surprisingly versatile ski. I really enjoy how they carve in good conditions, and even with your edges detuned underfoot, there is a fair amount of effective sharp edge, unlike with many of the heavily rockered jib skis that the EDollo might typically be seen as competition for. They are still fairly torsionally stable too, probably thanks to the extension of some sidewall all the way to the contact points in the new AR75 constructions. Altough, they definitely do get a bit shaky at higher speeds too and aren’t good on ice, but if you want something better, you are going to have to go with a ski less oriented to playful skiing.

It used to be that the ARV 96 (weirdly) had thicker edges than the EDollo, but the new models of each now feature identical edges. That, along with similar construction means the two should be very similar in terms of durability. Stiffer skis tend to be less prone to snapping, but that is not an issue I’ve ever had myself with any EDollos/Al Dentes. I rode the EDollo longer than any other ski last season and they held up decently.
