Billed as a fustion of freeride and freestyle, Salomon's Rocker2 100 blends all-mountain jib skills with the wood-core, vertical-sidewall guts of a high-performance freerider. It's rockered and tapered tip and tail, for looseness in soft snow that promotes creativity, and with a low taper angle (the tail that's only 7 mm narrower than the tip), it's comfortable going backwards as well as forward. A Carve Zone section of camber underfoot gives it edgy responsiveness on hard snow, and its 100 mm waist hits the versatility sweet spot for hardpack or powder. It's the top ski in Salomon's Freestyle collection, which includes three twintips in waist widths of 100, 86, and 85 mm. All are sold flat (no binding). Salomon has been headquartered in Annecy, France, since its founding there in 1947. Along with sister brands Atomic and ArcTeryx, it is a division of Amer Sports of Finland, which acquired it in 2005. Its U.S. headquarters are in Ogden, Utah. -J.C.
