Rocker is an innovation in skis, where the tip and/or tail of skis are shaped with an early upward curve that resembles the arc at the base of a rocking chair. In soft snow, rocker helps tips and tails avoid sinking. This means skiers catch edges less often, turning is easier and balance is improved. Essentially, rocker serves to pre-bend a ski into an ideal shape for soft and variable snow, giving the skier a more predictable platform.
