The Al Dente was designed and built to Henrik Harlautâ€™s exact specifications. Like a noodle cooked to perfection, the Al Dente has a slightly firm yet soft flex. Featuring a wider platform and AR Nose Rocker, this ski will help you butter, smear, press, gap, redirect, and transfer your way around the park or the mountain.

I've been using my pair of Armada Al Dente Zero 178s (133-98-123) for All Mountain and they're a great ski. I went to Orford on a 60cm powder day and they held up in the deeps just as well as a lot of powder skis I've ridden. The edges, bases, and top sheet are bomb proof. The Al Dente Zeros also slash through moguls, crud, and really anything I've been able to throw at them. I've taken them over 30 foot cliffs in deep powder and I didn't have a problem floating out of the landing. They also look amazing with the matte/gloss black design. I recommend this ski for anyone looking for a playful all mountain ski, or a one ski quiver kind of ski. Any person just wanting a good ski to butter on should stick to the original Edollos.
This is an awesome ski. I have skied some park and it performed remarkably, I skied some chop/slush and it held up really well and even a bit of pow where they had a fair amount of float to them>
Overall really fun skis, buttery but still stable enough to ski hard and bomb bigger hills. I would thoroughly recommend this ski to anyone looking for a more playful, wider park ski that will perform extremely well under most conditions.
