ROCKER TECHNOLOGY

 

The introduction of rocker to alpine skis has literally improved the ski experience for all skiers from first-timers to powder hounds to World Cup racers. Rocker makes skiing nearly effortless by simultaneously enhancing steering and minimizing fatigue – without compromising performance – for every skier type. Simply put, rocker helps skis turn with less effort, carve more easily and float better in deep snow.

Rocker is actually a catch-all phrase that describes “reverse camber” or “early rise” in a ski’s camber profile. Rocker is an upward bend of the tip and/or tail away from the snow. Rocker comes in many different forms including: “full rocker”, “tip rocker” and “tail rocker”.

Traditional camber is the opposite of “rocker” and features a modest downward bend along the length of the ski. Traditional camber enhances stability and tracking; increasing precision and fore/aft balance.

The right balance of rocker and traditional camber depends on the level and type of skiing one prefers. Rossignol offers four different rocker profiles: Power Turn Rocker, Auto Turn Rocker, Powder Turn Rocker and Spin Turn Rocker. Each perfectly tailored to the exact needs of every skier type…
