What is the camber?
When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and tail, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the edge grip and more pop the ski will have. The lower the camber, the more forgiving and manageable the ski will be.
What is a rocker?
On a rocker ski, the tip – and the tail sometimes – comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: they are more manageable and buoyant on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more edge grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable your skis will be.
Piste rocker
A small rocker at the tip makes it easier to initiate turns.
