Waist Width: 108
The RockerÂ² 108 is the middle ground ski in the Gravity Powder series intended for powder and hardpack, but more so for powder. It has a 108 mm waist and 19.2 m radius (at 182 cm). Honeycomb Tip and Tail technology lightens the tip and tail, designed for extra floatation and less chatter. For something similar but skinnier, check out the RockerÂ² 100. And for something similar but wider, check out the RockerÂ² 122. The Gravity Powder series is Salomon's most powder-focused series, featuring three different models with waists ranging from 100 mm - 122 mm. These are skis intended for deep snow and gnarly terrain, no matter where you find it. Full Woodcore is built in to give the ski stability and reduce chatter and Twin Rocker lifts the tip and tail up and off the ground, designed for playfulness and mowing through varied conditions. Hook Free Taper additionally moves the ski's widest points slightly away from the tip and tail and towards the binding, designed for better turn initiation and reduced hooking, especially in powder and other conditions outside the groomers. Salomon, based in Annecy, France, was founded in 1947. Its U.S. headquarters are in Ogden, Utah.
