Description

Plump and playful in pow and beyond.

The Salomon Rocker 2 122 is a fatty, but it's one smooth operator for all that girth. Its Twin Rocker profile is all about smooth transitions from edge to edge and a playful, surfy feel all over the backside. A lightweight honeycomb tip adds to its maneuverability, and hook-free tapered tip and tail keep it running nice and easy without that grabby, pulling feeling. Wood runs from tip to tail for a full-length stable and strong ride. With the added durability without the weight, the Edgy Monocoque construction keeps this freeski stick together season after season.

The top-of-the-line ski in Salomon's Freeski Powder lineup, there's nothing too deep or steep for the Rocker2 122.

  • Full Twin Rocker profile
  • 40% flat-ski Carve Zone
  • Edgy Monocoque cap construction
  • Full wood core
  • 122-millimeter waist
  • Hook-free tapered tip and tail
  • Honeycomb tip

Would this be a ski that a guy would want to rig up for backcountry going the AT route?

You certainly could use the Salomon Rocker2 122 as a devoted AT set-up but this ski is a real fatty, skewed much more toward deep powder riding than anything else. If you are debating between the Salomon Rocker2 and the Rossi Soul 7. I would definitely give the Soul 7 the edge as a hard charging AT ski.

Bomber powder ski, but not bomb proof...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This ski will warm your soul with joy on a powder day. Granted, with a 122 waist, it's gonna float, but it's also super nimble through the trees and has a surfy, free spirit feel to it as well.
The 192 has proven to be a reliable bomber in the chutes and steeps, at least as long as there's a little fresh under foot.
However, beware the low rise tip design. Maybe it was just my bad luck, but third time out this season the ski had a head on collision with underlying material in fresh powder fields. -Not something covered under warranty. Had I opted for the Rossi Super 7, I think I may have gotten away with a simple p-tex surgery rather than a complete nose job...

True powder ski

Unbelievable float. Takes much less body english to keep the tips up in the deep stuff, and allows you to focus on choosing a line and stomping it with style. Certainly not an everyday ski, but when its deep, its the go-to.

Looking for perfect length
Hi guys I'm going to buy the Rocker 2 122 for this winter. Need some advice for the right length. Actually I ski with K2 Pontoon in 195cm and K2 Coomba in 181cm. My weight is 75kg, length 176cm. I'm not sure if the 184cm Salomon Rocker 2 or the 192cm is the right length for me. I ski pretty strong, the rocker will be only used for powder skiing. I can handle my 195cm Pontoony pretty good, but sometimes in tight sutuations they are a little demanding, so I look for some easier skiing. The Coombas work pretty well, but in pow dyas I prefer to have more width and more rocker for easy funny skiing. Once I had Gotamas in 184cm and hated them because they were very unstable at high speed in pow. Any advices from you guys who know the Rocker 2 122?

Hi Harry,

I think you'll be fine with the 192. They will be easier than the pontoons because they are a little smaller but also a lot lighter. You will appreciate the 192 as more stable at speed as well.

Picked up a pair of these last year and have loved them. I am about 5'10" and went with the 192s for a more big mountain ski. Obviously, these skis are the bees knees in powder, but they are equally great in chopped up snow and less than ideal conditions. They can plow through chopped up powder and crud almost effortlessly and can take big landings and high speed straight-lines with ease. While I wouldn't reach for these boards on boilerplate days, a hint of camber underfoot makes them more than manageable on hard snow and there are not many days on the West Coast I would not feel comfortable with these on my feet! Despite their length they are quite maneuverable in the trees and tight spots. These skis do have substantially more tail than my bentchetlers do. Spinning while airborne is surprisingly easy for a ski this big, an attribute I attribute to the light tips and tails and a more foreword mounting point. I mounted them at -2.5cm, or one mark in front of the recommended line, which I had heard from many sources was the sweet spot. I encountered a hint of tip dive my first day on these boards, but only on flat powder heading back to the lift, and I have not encountered this since. I definitely would not mount any farther foreword and would seriously consider moving back to the recommended line, but so far I am satisfied with the mounting point. Overall I am stoked on these skis and look foreword to slaying some big lines with them this season!

Perfect Pow Skis

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these skis based solely on positive reviews and I am not disappointed. I've got 2 seasons on my Rocker 2s and I ski them as much as possible. Despite being rather wide and having big tip and tail rocker, these skis are surprising usable. They hold and edge on hard snow and are absolutely awesome in all types of soft snow. Not too mention they're light, playful and very easy to ski. And after 2 seasons of hard riding - they've held up great. I highly recommend these skis.
