Lets you live your powder dreams.
The moment you hear the sound of the snow plow, you hop out of bed, slide into your ski clothes, grab the Salomon Rockette 115 Ski, and head out the door to meet the ski bus. the Rockette's Twin Rockered profile enables you to sail down wide-open pow fields and beat your friends to the lift line, while the solid wood core delivers the stability and rebound you require to handle your freeride riding style.
- Full Twin Rockered profile features a 40% pressure zone when the ski is flat and a 80% pressure zone when it's on edge, which offers maximum float in powder, soft snow, and crud, provides playfulness and maneuverability, and gives you solid spin, pivot and switch riding
- Full Twin Rockered profile also has a rockered tip and tail that supplies optimal floatation in pow
- Full wood core from tip to tail supplies solid stability on snow, powerful rebound, maximizes ski/snow contact, and filters vibrations for a smooth ride
- PulsePad technology incorporates an elastomer layer all along the edge of the ski to absorb shock and vibration for a smoother ride and softer ski-to-snow contact
- Edgy Monocoque construction eliminates excess material and gives you precise edge grip and efficient energy transfer from skier to snow
- A fat waist equips you with a delicious big-mountain ski that lives to slash pow turns, go fast, stomp landings, and lay down wicked pillow lines
- Total Edge Reinforcement consists of fiber reinforcement laid directly on the edges for improved edge durability and edge grip
- Wide, thick edges increase durability and improve shock resistance

I'm looking into getting a big aggressive powder ski. I'm an advanced aggressive female skier and want a powder ski but something that also carves on groomers. I'm looking into the rossi s7 womens and the salomon rockette. Thoughts on the differences between the two?
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Got these for my sister and she absolutely loves the skis. I have heard nothing but great things from her about these skis. They have a soft flex but lots of stability for all-mountain groomer riding. She is an intermediate skier and says they are the best ski she has ridden.
i'm female skier, appx 5'9 140. debating between the 178 rockette, the 178 rocker2 115, and the 180 rocker2 122...any words of wisdom for me?? are they all rockered tip and tail with camber under foot?
The Rockette 115 178cm and the Rocker2 122 180cm are nearly identical in shape and rocker profile, both with camber underfoot. Just a 2cm difference in length. The Rocker2 115 is different, rocker tip but a flatter, more traditional tail. All three skis have camber underfoot. If you want a more directional ski, go with the Rocker2 115. If you want a full twin rocker, more playful, try the Rockette 115.

How will this ski work as a tele-setup? I�ve skied the Armada JJ and it was too much tail rocker. Will this ski be similar?
Hey Jonas, it will work fine for a tele-setup. Depending on where you mount it. . you can adjust for the tail rocker. It is a playful but powerful ski with a wood core so it will work well/flex well with a tele-binding. Hope that helps.
The Rockette 115 ski is an all-time, all-around pow ski that is so much FUN! It's playful enough to work deftly when tree skiing and solid enough to work exquisitely for heli-skiing the steeps in Alaska. Whenever there is fresh snow this is my go-to ski because it really can do it all...
Deep powder? No problem, the Rockettes help you float on top no matter how light or heavy the snow is. Pillows? Definitely, these skis are bouncy and reactive making you feel like they're a dream to ski. Big, open steep faces? If you want to feel that sensation of buttering the longest turn of your life hauling as fast as you can the Rockettes allow you to do it. Cliff jumping? No matter how big you want to go (or not) the weight is centered so well on these puppies that it makes it easy to stomp airs. And for the lady that wants to step into her first pair of wide-underfoot pow skis don't be intimidated by the Rockette! The way this ski is designed it's so easy to maneuver you can go as slow or as fast as you want and it will make you feel like you are taking your powder skiing to the next level.
To note, the Rockette 115s are the women's version of the men's Rocker 122s, not the men's 115s which are a completely different ski! Seems confusing, yes, but it's because Salomon is working off of the width underfoot and since the women's lengths are shorter then than men's skis, the overall ski size is altered accordingly. So if you don't think a 178 cm Rockette is long enough for those of you who are taller, hard charging females then move on up the men's Rocker 122s, you definitely don't want to miss out on this awesome ski.
A hard-charging ski with dimensions that fit woman specific. It has all the power of a unisex ski but comes in women's sizes. I've used this all over the resort and in the backcountry. Stable, precise, powerful. It edges well, zips through turns, and cuts and floats crud and powder. All around fast and fun ski that is great for airs and for steeps. Charges big open lines and is there when you need it. Twin tip for those who like to mix it up. There is nothing girly about this ski except for the top sheet. LOVE it.
