We solved the “if you could only take one ski” question years ago, with the Rockwell. Peak to park the Rockwell has convinced thousands of skiers that one ski is truly capable of demoting an entire quiver to storage.
Its logic-defying geometry bypasses the conventional rules of ski design and stitches together the cranky sidecut and short running length of a resort carver with the surface area and smooth early-rise tips of a powder ski. Reactive and secure on its edges, and lofty in 3D snowpack, the Rockwell has the broadest performance range of any ski in our range.
New for the 17/18 winter, Carbon Pop Band reinforcement adds some extra snap, crackle and pop to make the Rockwells even more energized and exhilarating.

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.
A narrow band of uni-directional carbon stringers that run through the centreline of a ski or snowboard from tip-to-tail increasing pop and extending flex memory without altering torsional stiffness.
Usually biaxial glass is optimum, but occasionally only the increased torsional rigidity of triax, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response, will do.
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.
