The Rockwell’s timeless design never fails to impress. In the bumps, off the jumps or simply carving the groomers, the Rockwell is a ton of fun to ski. There’s a reason its Amplid’s best seller and a team favorite.
The Rockwell was the first Amplid shred to be designed using Jekyll and Hyde Geometry. At the time it was just an experiment; little did we know that its shape would heavily influence all of Amplid’s future ski and snowboard designs.
A typical Slalom Ski is considerably shorter than its all-mountain counterpart, but despite its reduced effective edge it has more than enough grip, even on pure ice. It’s the deep, aggressive sidecut of these skis that enables them to be skied with such conviction in bulletproof conditions. Amplid applied a tight sidecut to a more conventional all-mountain length. The excess ski length in the tip and tail extending beyond the sidecut was kept to increase the Rockwell’s active surface area. The result is a ski with go-cart-like handling, superior floatation and surprising stability.
Camrock, a hybrid of lightly rockered tips and prominent underfoot camber, improves floatation and adds an element of playfulness which allows the Rockwell to be smeared and buttered into turns.
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.
