Manufacturer's Description

The Rockwell’€s timeless desaign 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.he
