Description

It's at its best when the going gets nipple deep

Like its cousin, the Salomon Rocker, the Salomon Rocker 2 Ski features a beefy 122mm-underfoot, pow-devouring rocker, and a stiff, big-mountain flex. Unlike its flat-tail cousin, though, the Rocker 2 features a freeride-friendly twin-tip profile that loves to play almost as much as it loves to charge. Not for the weak or those seeking an all-mountain, single-ski quiver, the Rocker 2 is big, stiff, and, like the name implies, massively rockered at the tip and tail.

  • Powder Rocker profile features raised tips and tails for enhanced flotation and a playful, maneuverable feel in deep snow
  • Full wood core lends stable, predictable performance at any speed
  • Edgy Monocoque construction blends a capped top with more vertical sidewalls for precise edge grip and efficient energy transfer from skier to ski
  • Honeycomb tip and tale structure provides a light, durable frame with an exceptionally low swing weight
  • Total Edge Reinforcement adds a layer of fiberglass directly on the edges for added durability
  • Pulse Pad elastomer layer along the edges reduces shocks and vibrations
  • Edge Armor tech links the ski's left and right edges with a strong polyethylene cord for added durability

Look at get the rocker 122, I'm 5'11 and 150lbs(68.5kg). Which would be better the 184 or 180?? And which bindings work well with this skis(and brake size)? thanks for your help.

Responded on

Hey Simon,

Thanks for the question. Unless swing weight is a real concern for you, I would go with the 184 as it will be more than maneuverable at that length.

Also, brake size should be 130mm and the binding that works best for you will be the binding that has your particular DIN setting in the middle of its DIN range (example: if your DIN is an 8, a binding with a DIN range of 3.5 to 12 would work best). See your local shop for an accurate measurement of what your DIN should be.

How's the durability of this ski?

I have heard for a couple years that salomon's durability in their skis isn't the greatest. I was wondering how these skis take abuse for hard charging skiers like myself. I am known to really take skis to their limits...

Responded on

I've found that cap skis hold up better than traditional sidewall skis. For one you can't crack a sidewall with a cap ski. With these specific skis I found the tips and tails do take some abuse with some small chips but no delams. The wood core has kept the skis lively as well, I've been impressed thus far!

Amazing Powder Ski

These skis are so much fun to ski and handle everything from the deep pow, tight trees and easy groomers. I have the 192's and I am 6' 190 lbs. I would recommend these to any skier looking for a great time on the entire mountain.

Homerun!

Phenomenal powder skis. Floats effortlessly. Incredibly smooth ride. Nothing that has not been said before. The point I want to make is about the mounting location. Salomon provides two lines. One is at the center for progressive riders. The rear line, which is 6cm back, is for freeriders. This is where I originally mounted my skis. At this location, there was way too much ski in front of the binding. It made the skis feel cumbersome and clumsy. I saw the video by Mike Douglas who recommended mounting about one inch behind the center line. I remounted the skis 4cm forward of the rear line at the +4 mark (which is also 2cm behind the center line). All awkwardness resolved. These skis came to life for me. These skis were magic on the powder. No nose dive despite the forward mounting. They floated over pristine and not so pristine powder with ease. The skis were very agile and nimble. Needless to say, I have found my powder skis. Thank you Salomon.

Simply wicked without the compromise.

This ski is absolutely phenomenal from deep powder to crud and even rips alright on the hardback on the way to the bar.. Highly reccomended.

I am thinking about buying the salomon rocker 2 ski.. I am a girl and my hight is 168 cm.. Would this ski fit me even though I am a girl..? I have been skiing a long time. Until this season I have been skiing on volkl kuro, and I think that this ski is a little bit too "big" for me..

Responded on

Where you on the Kuro or the Kiku in the Volkl? In any event, there is no reason why this ski would not work for you provided you can find it In a 170. At your Size I would not go longer.

I'm thinking about doing some skinning this season but I'm not sure what AT set up to go with.
Would these skis work well paired with the marker bindings and brakes? The links to the gear are below.

Kelsey,

I'm about to mount my Salomon Rocker 2's (184) with this AT Setup:

Black Diamond Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro Binding -120MM - http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-fritschi-diamir-freeride-pro-binding-120mm

I'm a big fan of the Fritschi's and prefer them over the Markers. The DIN goes to 12, I never pop out of my bindings. And the convenience of not having to come out of your binding to go into touring mode is huge. Not only when climbing but it's also very useful when traversing flat sections without skins (especially in powder where it can be pain coming in and out of your binding).

The 120mm brakes will fit the Salomon Rocker 2's 122 underfoot fine.

and these bindings are on sale at Backcountry.com so they cost about the same.

Climbing Skins for Rocker 2's?

I know the...

Climbing Skins for Rocker 2's?

I know the consensus from the Q & A below seems to be go with 130MM Climbing Skins for Rocker 2's.

Would 125mm be to narrow?

Also... Can anyone recommend a climbing skin brand they would go with that fit the Rocker 2's the best? Which tail attachments work best?

For someone only doing short climbs, 1-2 hours tops usually less. What material type would you go with?

I have had some bad experience with some tail attachments in the past. And I have never cut skins for rocker skis before so any help would be much appreciated!

Best Answer Responded on

125mm skins would fit and you wouldn't have to cut them. Using 125s, you give up a little bit of uphill friction because they won't cover the entire base of the ski. I don't see any reason to get a 130mm skin. It's not wide enough to go full coverage, but you'll still be cutting the waist. The alternative would be to get some wider skins - 140mm+ - and cut them to width. You'll cut them the same way you would for any other ski, following the edge and cutting about 1-2mm in. Given the rocker on the ski and the shorter contact patch, I'd go for a wider skin to get as much traction as possible.

If you're only doing short climbs, I see no reason to spend the extra dinero on mohair. Synthetic will do you just fine.

As for brands, I've had G3 skins on my twin-tips for 3 seasons, now. They have never fallen off and still stick like new. I think you'll find that, for the most part, any type of skin attachment system developed over the last few years will work with your skis.

I am in the market for some new sticks and...

I am in the market for some new sticks and I am trying to decide on buying either the Shiros or the Salomon Rocker 2s.. I have done a bunch of research and talking around and it is honestly a toss up for me right now.. I am 6'1" 195lbs and I would consider myself a very advanced, hard charging skiier.. I want a reliable, durable ski that I can go big and have fun with.. Any suggestions or advice for your experience? I am also tryin to decide between the 184cm and the 192cm any pros or cons to either length? I appreciate the comments.. Happy Trails

Responded on

I am sure you have read through the comments and reviews, so some of this will be old news, but here is my 2 cents. You are correct on the toss up aspect when you are talking pure powder - both will perform very well. Same for crud. The balance may shift to the Shiro when you are dealing with less than ideal conditions, or groomers. The Volkl ELP makes the ski more versatile. In a year like this, with low snow, I'd rather have the Shiro, at least from an all around stand point. As for length, I am 6'1", 180, and ski very hard. I've skied both the 192 and 182. I opted for the 182, because it was easier in the tight spots, you gave up no stability, and it was less ski to have to move around towards the end of the day. Bottomline, you cannot make a bad decision here.

Responded on

hey dub5335996,
haven't skied the other skis that you are asking about but the Rocker 2 is an extremely versatile ski that does it all. I'd agree with Jamie on the length suggestion as the ski is more maneuverable at the 184cm if you want it for every option from tight couloirs and trees, to big faces and long powder runs, to ripping groomers and bumps. For Alaska deep pow, the 192 might be the option but otherwise go smaller. Hope that helps!

Best ski ever!

These skis are amazing! A fat powder ski that skis like its skinny brothers. Soft in the tip, solid under foot. They don't flop like most skis this big. They hold a turn well and don't get hung up! And they look sickk

I mount mine 2cm back from center.

Best ski ever!

What Poles do you combine with the Rocker 2s or suggest? I got the Rocker 2s just now and they look awesomeeee :)

Salomon Rocker 2...I'm in love!

These skis are my new favorites. Can't give them enough praise. Of course they kill it in the powder, but are also stable in the skied up crud. The ski doesn't feel too big and is easy to maneuver. My new go to skis for any new snow days!

sweet!!

I have skied these for one day, but i think i have a pretty good idea of how this ski goes.

Powder: its really good, but you already know that. even center mounted skiing in the front of the boot, these float really nicely.

Park: It didnt do to bad. I didnt do any rails, but i hit some jumps and they were a pretty solid landing platform. i hit a canon box, and it worked really well, but i wouldnt recamend this because you will rip your edges out eventualy.

Moguls: This is where it really surprised me. after one run of working out the kinks, i could ski the bumps very well, i just couldnt really zipperline for very long.

Groomers: it was fine. a little wobbly at first, but you dont even notice that unless you look down.

Trees: with the super light tips these did really well in the trees. you can turn super fast, and so the trees where really fun.

Basically, i loved these skis, and they are now my everyday ski in telluride CO. I skied the 180, im 5'9" and 130lb. These are much more versatile than they are given credit for. If you can figure out how to ski them (which only took me one run) these can be your everyday ski. these work really well all over, i couldnt find anything the couldnt do just as well as a pair of all mountain skis. you should deffinatly consider buying a pair.

where is progressive mount line in relation to the true center on these fatties?

Responded on

I'd say true center is the progressive mount. Most people are saying to mount center, or 1 to 2 cm back of center, for progressive.

Responded on

I'm pretty sure +6cm (full progressive) is -1cm from true center.

I am 5' 10" and about 175 lbs, currently ski the 182 czar, and spend at least half my time sledding or hiking in the BC. I tend to ski very aggresive and search for the more rowdy lines. Any suggestions on 184 vs 192?

Responded on

If you are happy with the length of your Czars you could go with the 184, it will be a little bigger but also more maneuverable. I think you could step up to the 192 if you wanted though. It is a very maneuverable ski but has the extra length to make it more stable at speed for those rowdy lines.

anyone 5'8 and around 185lbs ski the 192's? trying to decide if I should get 184 or 192's. there doesn't seem to be a big difference in effective edge btwn the two.

Responded on

Hi Jay, the 'effective edge' you speak about only applies when skiing hard snow. In soft snow you are skiing the entire ski so the difference in the two lengths is very noticeable. Please provide more information on your ability, style, and the length ski you are currently using, as well as where you plan on doing most of your skiing. Thanks! Jamey
