“Rocker Technology” Makes Skiing and Snowboarding Easier

The latest innovations in skiing and snowboarding have made the sports easier, more accessible, and more fun than ever before. Some ski companies use “rocker technology” to provide increased control and confidence among skiers while actually reducing fatigue. Nearly all skis today include a form of rocker technology. It is designed to make the snow experience easier.


Product suppliers who use rocker technology maintain that the learning progression in all snow conditions is easier and more intuitive. Therefore the learning curve is shorter. Rossignol and HEAD are good examples. Both companies have used the technology extensively and Rossignol's Experience Centers offer a good place to sample it. 


According to SKI magazine, a concave, underfoot arch means that a ski with full rocker or reverse camber will contact the snow directly under the bindings while the tip and tail curve up from the center like a smile.


Rossignol Experience Centers are available at over 20 destination resorts and local ski/snowboard areas across the U.S. for the 2013/14 season. The goal is to allow consumers of all ability levels an opportunity to experience a product that offers more control, more confidence, and more fun.

Additional details on rocker technology also is available from HEAD Wintersports, SKI magazine and REI.
