There are many imitators, but only one Rockwell. From day one we knew this ski was special, but year-after-year, award-after-award, the Rockwell continues to build its legacy.
We don’t think it’s too much to expect a ski to perform in the park, on the resort trails and in the backcountry. In fact team rider Alex Neurohr takes it for granted that 90% of the time the only ski he needs under his feet is the Rockwell.
Exaggerated 5-dim shaping is what makes the Rockwell so special. Its tight sidecut radius and short effective edge bring the widest parts of the ski closer towards the skier’s boot, improving control in soft snow conditions. Extended contact points deliver abundant grip in hard conditions and all the extra surface area on offer helps the Rockwell to plane easily in powder.
Amplid’s Camrock profile blends underfoot camber with rocker tips. A length of camber under the boot provides grip and reverse camber in the tips increases playfulness and deep snow performance. This ski-specific camber manifests itself in various forms in Amplid’s skis; skis intended for deep snow have a smaller camber area and increased rocker to improve floatation and fluidity.

This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
Amplid uses Triaxial glass in the majority of its skis for greater torsional rigidity, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response.
Max effective edge and square centimeters for floatation in the minimum board or ski length. Unsinkable, but nimble pow shreds, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and insane edge-hold or the ultimate all-mountain ski shape recipe.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
