Rocker 2: Return of the Rocker.
The Rocker2 100 Skis are the most versatile option in Salomon's Rocker2 lineup, and they're the fabled, do-it-all boards that everyone's been waiting for. Like all the Rocker2s, the 100s have a light and lively wood core and are built with Salomon's now classic Twin Rocker profile, which combines low camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail for a ride that's edgy when you need it and surfy when you want it.
The more you roll the Rocker2s over, the harder the edge will engage, so look out groomers and park jumps, but if you keep them relatively flat, the tips and tails will float and surf through softer snow, giving you the loose, smeary powder performance of a more powder-specific ski. This is partly due to their Hook-Free Taper, which moves the ski's widest points towards the middle for smooth turn initiation, as well as the ability to break your tips and tails out of a turn for that loose, surfy feel that pow skiers love. Loose and surfy doesn't mean wimpy, though, as the Rocker2s are built with a rugged sandwich sidewall construction that'll direct plenty of power to the edges and stand up to the occasional rock, rail, or root hit.

Love these Skis
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Recently moved out to Colorado after a long time riding the east. Needed something that was going to be better in powder and boy did I make the right choice!
The skis float pretty effortlessly through the powder. Great control through the trees (where I spend most of my days) and can stop on a dime. I have an ancient pair of boots I'm wearing and they still hold a turn incredibly well. At no point do I ever feel that I am sacrificing the ability to ride any part of the mountain with these skis. Take them in the park, groomers, glades, or the deep without any worry of the ski not performing. I have yet to take them back country, but have that on my list of things to do!
Ultimately, they are worth the price. I have them paired with the Warden MNC 13 bindings and they have been spectacular. They also feel a lot lighter than you would expect. I'm 5'9" and I ride the 178's with the traditional mount position and have never thought I was being weighed down.
