What is 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 traction and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more forgiving and manageable the ski.
What is a rocker?
On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the tail, come 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 thereby reduced: you get more manageability and lift on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more traction on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the manageable the ski.
Track rocker
The small tip rocker facilitates the approach to turns.

    Výborné lyže v poměru cena výkon

    Lyže jssou za ty peníze výborné, točivé, snadno ovladatelné, ideální na naučení. Zkoušeno na Hohen Bogenu. Oproti půjčeným 2x dražším Salomonům jednoznačně posun k lepšímu.

    Skvělý výběr pro sjezdaře

    - Velmi dobré lyže, zejména pro sjezdaře
    - Rychle kloužou, do oblouků přechází svižně, jdou s nimi jednoduše dělat jak krátké, tak dlouhé oblouky
    - Testovány na nepříliš upravené české sjezdovce. S muldami si krásně poradily, na upravených sjezdovkách musí být jejich výkon úžasný
    - Poměr nízké ceny a výkonnosti jednoznačně parádní

    Pro začátečníky topka

    Rozhodně se nejedná o nejlepší lyže na trhu, ale začátečníkům bohatě postačí. Kladem (pro mě určitě) je, že mají i decentní design, tudíž si s nimi člověk nebude připadat jaky by přijel z kolotočů, ale ani s nimi nezapadne díky použitým barvám
