Early Taper Sidecuts
Early taper sidecuts in the tip and tail allow the ski to steer in and out of the turn more easily. The result is a more playful feel no matter what the conditions. In powder it makes it easy to point them wherever you want to go and not worry about deflection. On all mountain skis, it delivers total directional freedom and effortless turn entry.
Völkl Rocker Designs
All Völkl Rocker Designs carefully match the flex and sidecut to the camber profile
WHAT IT IS: A smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and flex - used on skis 100mm and up.
WHAT IT DOES: Originally called Extended Low Profile, Full Rocker gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. As soon as the ski is on edge, the skier gains uninterrupted edge contact. The more the ski is on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability is truly uncanny.
TIP & TAIL ROCKER:
WHAT IT IS: A slight rocker bend in the tip and tail, complemented by traditional camber under foot.
WHAT IT DOES: With a slight rocker in the tip and tail, combined with a classic camber profile under the foot, Völkl engineers have created the ideal blend for frontside carving. Easy, smooth turn entry and exit, with acceleration and rebound as well. The new Extended Tip/Tail Rocker features an elongated rocker profile beginning in front of the toe piece and ‘extending’ toward the tip. A prime example of all elements of ski design coming together, the extension of the rocker allows a stiffer tip flex and more open sidecut radius, promoting stability, turn initiation, and playfulness ALL AT ONCE.
WHAT IT IS: An early-rise tip design.
WHAT IT DOES: For all-mountain skiing and even racing on narrower ski designs, the combination of an early rise tip and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski provides easy, smooth turn entry regardless of conditions. The ski is forgiving, playful, and easy to handle.
