Salomon’s full twin rocker freeski received its highest scores for flotation, though many testers felt the Rockette was damp for a Salomon. “It holds solid but feels a little heavy underfoot,” Rodman said. “It does feel bomber in variable snow.” The Rockette’s architecture includes a full wood core, Salomon’s Edgy Monocoque construction, shock-resistant wide edges plus a honeycomb frame for weight and shock reduction in the tip and tail. The full twin rocker adds a significant amount of effective edge thanks to the length of the tip and tail rocker. “It’s a beefy ski and experts will appreciate the quiet tips off-piste,” said Dumais.
