The Armada Bdog Edgeless is brand new to the range for the 2019/2020 winter season however, it is a ski that has been in the works for years. Coming out of Armada's innovative Zero Lab collection the Bdog Edgeless has been designed with Armada skier Phil Casabon to be his ultimate street ski, with the lack of steel edges allowing him to slide on any surface he gets his hands on.
It may sound intimidating to be looking at a ski that was designed for a pro rider who spends a lot of time in urban terrain but the Edgeless is being talked about as being one of the best dome/dry slope skis that could buy, for the simple fact that you don't need edges on these artificial surfaces and there are so many benefits to being edgeless. The ski is made from a full wood core that is unbound by the constraints that a metal edge would normally bring, and as such the Bdog Edgeless has an incredible flex. It's not outrageously soft and noodly but instead provides a steady soft flex that just keeps on going, which means that you can press that nose to your heart's content and not feel like it's fighting against you, nor is it completely folding beneath you. Not only does the edgeless construction bring about a unique feel to the ski, but it also gives a different look on durability. Through the years of using non-production edgeless skis Armada have not had any out of the norm durability issues, with no edges you can't blow any edges!
On test reviewers commented on the fact that compared to their detuned park skis it didn't feel all that much more unstable on piste, but that the flex and performance on rails was noticeably better. Overall the Bdog Edgeless is an incredibly unique ski that for the right user will absolutely be the best ski you can buy. There's no getting away from the fact that when it's icy you're going to have a tough time but on normal conditions, the ski is more than capable of getting you home safely after a day in the park.
If you're an enthusiast of hitting any type of rail you're looking for a super flexy, durable ski then the Edgeless has no comparison. It's specifically designed for minimal hook ups and maximum pressability with increased taper on previous years and a 'straight' section underfoot reflecting this. The 2020 Armada Bdog Edgeless is truly a ski in a class of its own and for dome and mountain skiers alike it opens a whole world of possibilities for what is possible on skis.
