Technical info:
This is not a pure park ski, it is the most freeride orientated model in the test. Such a long setback is not common for park skis, but this is compensated by a lot of sidecut an short taper in the back ski, thereby limiting the width difference between tip and tail. Soft tip with a lot of rocker. Its specific weight is lower than many of the other models in the test.

On snow:
The early narrow version of the Rocker2 is a well known park ski. We were also here provided with a short length, which limited its use a little. With a centered mounting, it still felt stable It is easy to rotate with, but difficult to get on the edge. This ski is also especially vulnerable on hard snow. It livens up as soon as the snow gets softer.
