What is a camber?
When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and heel, 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 tolerant and manageable the ski.
What is a rocker?
On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, 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 traction on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the easier the skis will be to handle.
What are ski sidecuts?
The sidecuts have 3 aspects: the width of the tip (front of ski), the waist (middle of ski) and the heel (back of ski). The wider the tip, the easier it is to initiate turns. The slimmer the waist width, the more edge grip the ski has on hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable the ski is in changing snow conditions. The wider the heel, the greater the stability of the ski in turns. The slimmer the heel, the easier it slides.

    Aún con mala nieve experiencia buenísima

    Los Samurai 500 son unos esquís de freeride muy buenos, me han ido muy finos incluso con mala nieve. Son muy firmes con velocidad y agarran perfectamente. Además son ligeros aunque tengan un tamaño grande. Brutales!
