BDog, Armada's second-softest park ski behind the EDOLLO, is designed as a quick and poppy park tool intended to rip beyond jumps and rails. This is understandably so from just a quick glance at the flowy style of pro skier Phil Casabon, who is the face behind this signature model. The BDog's turning radius, which ranges between 13.5 meters and 18 meters depending on length, is designed for a variety of turns, and the Hybrid Ultralight Core is designed to let this thing fly around the mountain. Its core technology is unique in Armada's Park series, and is more commonly seen in big powder skis intended for floating. Also unique to the BDog is its EST Park Rocker technology, which is manufactured to be much more dramatic than any of the other skis in Armada's Park Series, which all lie much more flat on the snow. The BDog also has extra thick 2.5 impact edges, designed for holding up on rails and other harsh obstacles. The BDog is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
