Like a fly suit, a good haircut, and a nice pair of shoes, camber is timeless and under appreciated. Rocker has its place and the tips and tails of Amplid's Rockwell Ski do have some rise to smooth out soft snow but when you need to lay over an edge on hardpack, you want that bite that only a traditional construction can provide. Along with it's all mountain destroying camber profile, the Rockwell has a pretty generous amount of sidecut, giving it a short turning radius and ridiculous amounts of grip. While it bites like a slalom ski, the increased length and wider shovels let the Rockwell float like a fatter board, and the Jekyll Hyde geometry packs maximum effective edge, surprising float, and smooth turn initiation into a seriously skiable package. Amplid built the Rockwell on its P10 Superlight wood core for a lively feel, and while the Rockwell's quick edge to edge and sharp in the trees, it also sports a pre stretched fiberglass laminate for stability and snap that won't fade as the ski ages. The Roundtop construction combines the bomber edgehold of ABS sidewalls with the flex and lightness of a cap, and the TPU spin tips help reduce chatter and keep the Rockwell spinny and fun in the air.
