Developed in response to the new FIS turn radius regulations, Prop Tech is a transversal ski flex release system. Vertically machined slots in the metal laminate provide more adaptive torsional flex for increased control, smoother turn initiation, superior power transfer, and improved edge contact.
RECTANGULAR SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION
A modern sandwich construction, with wood core, vertical walls, fiberglass and titanal or carbon reinforcement. The wood core gives the ski its character, as well as great snow feel. The rectangular structure enables improved flex distribution, while the vertical walls give immediate, powerful grip. Grip, Power, Control
Varying lengths of metal and fiberglass laminates staggered through the tip of the ski provide a lighter extremity and help control tip torsion, smoothing out turn initiation and improving full edge contact. The lighter weight tip improves the swing weight of the ski for quick and adaptable turn initiation.
EARLY RISE TIP/POWER TURN ROCKER
Traditional high camber through 90% of the ski's length delivers power and edge grip for explosive snap and boost. The subtle rocker tip over the remaining 10% allows easier turn initiation easier and control.
The introduction of rocker to alpine skis has literally improved the ski experience for all skiers from first-timers to powder hounds to World Cup racers. Rocker makes skiing nearly effortless by simultaneously enhancing steering and minimizing fatigue - without compromising performance - for every skier type. Simply put, rocker helps skis turn with less effort, carve more easily and float better in deep snow.
Rocker is actually a catch-all phrase that describes reverse camber or early rise in a ski's camber profile. Rocker is an upward bend of the tip and/or tail away from the snow. Rocker comes in many different forms including: full rocker, tip rocker and tail rocker.
Traditional camber is the opposite of rocker and features a modest downward bend along the length of the ski. Traditional camber enhances stability and tracking; increasing precision and fore/aft balance.
The right balance of rocker and traditional camber depends on the level and type of skiing one prefers. Rossignol offers four different rocker profiles: Power Turn Rocker, Auto Turn Rocker, Powder Turn Rocker and Spin Turn Rocker. Each perfectly tailored to the exact needs of every skier type.
