Middle children have a way of being overlooked, but the Salomon Rocker2 108 isn't content playing second fiddle to its fatty big bro, the Rocker2 122, or its super-versatile little brother, the Rocker2 100. If you have to pick one ski from the Rocker2 series to ski everyday, in power and crud, on groomers and through chop, the 108s are the one. The 108mm waist width offers plenty of float in powder, and an Edgy Monocoque cap construction keeps the swing weight down and the fun factor through the roof. The 108s are built with the same Twin Rocker profile with camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail, giving them the ability to edge powerfully when you lay it over on edge and float, surf, and slash through powder. In addition to being rockered, the tip features a honeycomb construction to reduce vibration and swing weight, and it is tapered to make it easy to carve big, loose powder turns. The tail boasts the same tapered shape, giving the ski a five-point sidecut that's super fun in any depth of soft snow, as well as a smooth and predictable feel in chop and on hardpack. Salomon also stopped the edges at the widest parts of the tip and tail, so there won't be any unexpected catching when you're mobbing through day-old chop at 50mph.
So I think the Salomon Rocker2 108 Ski Black/Yellow Green, 182cm was okey, but it's not as impressive as I hooped. Price can be lower too.
