Technical info:
One of two new additions to the Salomon Rocker2 family. The 108 version is a soft ski with a lot of taper as well as front and back rocker. Camber is relatively high at the waist. The turn radius is short, especially at the waist. This is a scaled-down version of one of last year's most popular ski models.

On snow:
Salomon have really managed to make a good ski for all parts of the mountain. With the 108 edition of the Rocker2, you can have fun in the park, cruise the groomers and fool around in the woods. This is not the ski for speeding down steep mountain slopes, it is too narrow and soft for that. However, the length of the pair we tested was also rather short. If you are looking for a versatile ski, the 108 is a good alternative. But be aware that it’s not made for the deepest powder or the steepest slopes. It will probably become a favorite among ski tourers as well.
