|Back in 2008 when the RVL8 Condor was first released it was the widest skiboard ever made and once again the Condor is the trailblazer for powder skiboarding. The 2012 Rockered Condor is proud to boast the title of the first ever rockered skiboard! The
new Rockered Condor is designed with tip & tail rocker and zero camber. These features will help you keep your tips up when indeep powder and carve effortless turns on groomers. The 2012 RVL8 Rockered Condor is the absolute best deep powder skiboard ever made.
Here are some technical details about the revolutionary new design of this skiboard:
Camber is the height the center of a skiboard sits above a flat surface. The new Rockered Condor has zero camber meaning it sits perfectly flaton the surface of the snow. Tip & tailrocker means the tips & tails are “angled” up. Both of these features help you to keep your tips up when in deep powder and carve effortless turns on groomers. In the Rockered Condor’s case the tip and tail rocker are 10/17. The “10” refers to 10 millimeters of tip rise—the maximum distance the ski’s front end will rise when laid on a flat surface. The “17” means the ski’s base will not touch that flat surface until 17 cm down from the skiboards traditional contact point (just behind the tip).
These features along with a stiff center section for hard packed carving, soft flexing tips and tails for powder float and the traditional Condor width add up to revolutionary powder performance in a 110cm super maneuverable package. If you’re into powder and skiboarding the Rockered Condor should be in your quiver. Click to read more about rocker technology.
