The multi-tool for your mountain.
You've always been impressed by the handyman who can whip out his trusty multi-tool and do a first-rate job on just about anything. With the Salomon Rocker2 108 Ski, you can look forward to being the new handyman of the mountain. Powder day—no problem, you've got a full twin rocker that surfs, spins, and floats like a boat. Fresh groomers—easy, the Edgy Monocoque structure with 108mm underfoot rips hardpack like a table saw. Park session—no brainer, honey comb structure in the tip and tail reduces weight for spins that would put figure-skaters to shame and the extra-thick edges are right at home sliding rails. The Rocker2 108 is the multi-tool for your mountain, look forward to a job well done.
- The playful Full Twin Rocker maximizes your ability to surf, spin, pivot, and float like a cork in the deep stuff
- A full Woodcore from tail to tip makes this ski super stable and responsive, giving you the necessary confidence to push the envelope
- The Edgy Monocoque structure provides precision edge grip and efficiently transfers energy from skier to snow, making this ski feel like an extension of your body
- Honey comb structure in the tip and tail makes the rockered extremities light as a feather so you can spin like a top with less inertia
- Total Edge Reinforcement incorporates fiber reinforcement directly on the edges for increased durability and edge grip
- Thicker edges increase shock resistance and durability so you can don't have to worry about hammering your edges when you throw down a park lap at the end of the day
- Edge Free tips and tails further reduce swing weight and ensure you will never hook a tip again
- 132mm in the tip, 108mm underfoot, and 125mm at the tail mean this ski has been fattened to float and curved to carve

This is a great all around ski that does everything well. Very playful and easy to ski. Surprising float for its dimensions compared to similar width skis. These skis really shine in the trees, moguls no problem, chop also. Where I had issues with them was straight lining at high speeds, stability was lacking... putting them on edge helped some. They ski super short, I'm on 190's and they felt shorter than 186 S3's to me. I'm 6'1" 180ish. I think for a smaller and lighter person this could be a great 1 ski do it all ride.
I bought these bad babies with the STH 14 binding and SPK 110 pros. Was a bit scared about getting fat skis since where i'm from we don't get too much powder, but said what the heck they'll be awesome when it does. And that they were, best skis yet and they deliver well even on groomed and icy runs which was a surprise. Was thinking of keeping my old Salomon Xwing tornado ti for icy days but after testing these i see no need. This is truly a one ski that does it all.

these things are amazing. enough float in the pow and still handle great on the groomers
Looking to get back into skiing after 10 years on board. Want something that plays in the pow like a board does (as I will be the only skier in the group) but still has the full mountain capability. 5'10" 180#. what do you recommend?
This will be a good choice. I would go with the 182 since its been a while since you've skied last. They really turn well and are very playful.

In powder this ski is the bomb, super playfull, surfy and not super wide so it can handle a variety of snow types. The rocker tail is wicked in powder but if you fall into the backseat its hard to get out of. Super excited to have it as a backcountry shredding setup.

Awesome skis they float so nice on pow and they are surprisingly really good on the groomers and for carving
Hi there, I'm torn between the Rocker 2 108 and Shogun! I generally ski in Australia, for which I have Atomic Blackeye ti and a pair Tornado Ti, but spent a while skiing Colorado this year and will be heading to BC for 5 weeks in jan 2013, so would like a ski more suited to those conditions. I've been skiing my whole life and can handle pretty much anything put in front of me, but have never really needed rockers. Also, as I'm a small guy (168cm) would you recommend the 166 or 174cm if I was to go with the Rocker 2 108?
Hey Nathan, The 174 would be more your size, 166 seems a little small if you are a skilled skier. You will love those skis. They will rule it up here in BC.
Thanks heaps for that.... I'm looking at buying within the next fortnight.... I've narrowed it down to Blizzard Conchise and Rocker2 108.... Is there much separating the two?
Mike Douglas walks us through the new Salomon Rocker2 108.
This was one of those days that had the really variable snow, 'dust on crust' if you will, perfect for the 108. Full float on the pow and full grip on the crust.
I was able to put this puppy through its paces last season, getting multiple days on the 182 and 190 versions. I was impressed by both skis. The 182 was definitely on the smaller side for me but it preformed amazingly well. very playfull, nice tight turn radius, great for all over the mountain. The 190 was more my style and didn't disappoint! I really enjoying the 108 waist last season. It makes skiing on firm snow or groomers so much more fun than with a wider ski.
Lighter swing weight and still plenty of surface area for smangin pow. Similar to the size of the Czar but with a rockered tail to increase butterablitly and switch landings. Above all it looks dope. My backcountry booter ski of choice...
