Don't just rule, be a dictator on the hill.
Formerly known as the Lord, the Salomon Rocker2 90 Ski proudly takes up the scepter and rules the mountain with confidence. The All Terrain Rocker and Pulse Pad absorb unwieldy terrain and beat the hardpack into submission while floating you across treacherous seas of powder and crud. The Rocker2 90 is the type of razor-sharp weapon that can single-handedly keep the whole mountain in check—you'll be glad it's strapped to your feet.
- The All Terrain Rocker is built for precise turning and fluid terrain absorption so you can pinpoint every launch and landing while floating over pow and crud
- A full Woodcore from tail to tip makes this ski super stable and responsive, giving you the necessary confidence to push the envelope
- The Semi-Sandwich Structure provides edge-to-edge liveliness for increased control underfoot
- The Pulse Pad Elastomer Layer along the edge of the ski absorbs vibration and shock for smooth buttery contact with the snow
- 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
- 89mm underfoot, 130mm in the tip, and 117mm in the tail gives you all the curves you need to sculpt a masterpiece

I've been skiing for five decades and this is the best ski ever! Remarkable stability at high speeds and cuts through crud and crust like a razor. At 68 yrs.old I figured my aggressive skiing days were long gone. Not so! I even conquered a mogul field, albiet cautiously with this ski. I demo'ed the 169 but purchased the 177 and glad I did...better stability at higher speeds.
How does this ski hold up at high speeds?...
How does this ski hold up at high speeds? Looking for something that holds its own in light powder but can rip down steep groomers without chatter and was wondering how this held up
My SkiTrack GPS tells me I hit 45 mph carving trenches with this ski. It's stable!!
Hi there, I'm looking for a solid all...
Hi there, I'm looking for a solid all mountain ski to accompany my 4frnt CRJs and my Rossi Phantoms. I use my CRJs for any day where there's over 6" of fresh and my Rossi's on the icey days. I ski at Wolf Creek so I can usally find some pow stashes in the trees and lots of untouched at Alberta. I'm looking for a ski that I can use to hike up to all the techy areas. I also want the ski to be able to play around at the mountain late and early season. Ive been looking at the Prophet 90, Salomon Rocker 2 90, Moment PB&J, Rossi Scimitar,and the Moment Tahoe. Im a 155lbs. 6' teenager advanced skier. I want the waist width to be anywhere from 102mm to 90mm and the length anywhere from 175-182. Just trying to find the right amount of playfulness around the resort and the right amount of stability in the hike to terrain. Thanks for the advice!
Read my review. This is my only ski!! It carves trenches on the groomed with great rebound, makes chop seem like untracked, slices up windblown, does great in the trees, moguls, steeps, and bottomless. Anything else?

This is a replacement for my Salomon Lord which I skied over 100 days. It's very similar but 2mm wider and a little more rocker. This ski has more rebound and energy which I love. I was a little concerned regarding carving trenches as it has 255mm front rocker compared with 210mm in the Lord, but it's an awesome carver. In soft snow and chop it's super. I think this is the perfect all mountain ski. While I haven't had it in bottomless yet, the Lord did great in that and this should be even better with slightly more rocker and width. I love this ski!! If you like to carve, I recommend buying it short. A 13.5 meter radius is exciting and permits you to carve without swooping the entire width of the slope.

This ski is not designed for the deep bottomless powder, it is an onhill crusher. Stiff and domineering this ski can shred hardpack, moguls, groomers. I just used this ski in the himalayas for a ski that I could depend on at all times. There is no place for mistakes and this ski won't make any.

which bindings would be the best for these skis? i am thinking of getting the Salomon STH 12.
That really depends on what you want to do with these skis, your size (height, weight, and boot sole length) and style of skiing. But the Salomon STH 12 is a pretty decent all around binding.
