Almost a decade old, the Rockwell continues to perplex and delight skiers of all abilities. Key to its undisputable popularity is the Rockwell’s unique Jekyll & Hyde Geometry, which combines a tight and playful sidecut radius with a versatile 95mm waist and plenty of lift-generating surface area. A true Swiss Knife, the Rockwell adapts to any skiing style, terrain choice or snow condition. Perfectly matched to its eccentric shape is a Camrock profile which blends underfoot camber with just the right amount of tip and tail rocker.
Long and tight carves, speed-scrubbing smears and effortless butters, the Rockwell is a playful and easily controlled toy for the entire mountain.
Successive upgrades over the last couple of years, including a lightning fast Sintered 7 base and snappy Carbon Pop Bands, make the Rockwell a true bang-for-buck bargain!
The most awarded ski in the Amplid collection scoops more silverware for its trophy cabinet, this year it's from the guys at LeBonTest.fr. Read the whole interview, translated into English, here.
Eric from Exotic Skis spent a few weeks cruising about on the Rockwells last winter. Read Eric's full report and find-out what he thought of Amplid's all-mountain game changer.
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.
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.
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.
