With the introduction of the new Stormriders 110, 95, Scot Schmidt Pro Model, and Sherpow, Stöckli has incorporated various “Rockered” designs into four models of versatile, all-mountain, big mountain and powder skis. Stöckli’s Rocker™ technology maintains some-to-full camber throughout these models, making them more versatile than fully reverse cambered skis on hard pack and variable conditions and the early rise in the shovel provides lift in powder enabling a natural athletic stance in even the deepest pow. Without the full contact of the tip & tail a traditional ski has, rocker skis feel shorter on packed snow and nimble in the trees, but gives you the full length of the ski and loft when heading into the deeper stuff – all without sacrificing edge control.
In race, or “sandwich” construction, sidewalls are built to protect the core from moisture damage and impact. Stöckli’s 3AX™ sidewalls are comprised of Stöckli’s exclusive three component, fiberglass reinforced synthetic, more resilient and damageable than any other sidewall material.
Refined continually by Stöckli, P.I.Technology™ (or “P.I.T.”) precisely removes a small Titanal layer with a laser which is then replaced with a soft polyamide elastic insert. The result is weight reduction and a precise modification of the ski’s torsional properties.
softFLEX™ models are designed to be lighter, softer and more flexible, making turn initiation and completion easier for lighter skiers and at slower speeds, without compromising comfort, performance or edge control at high speed.
TORSIO TECH™ evolved from Stöckli’s P.I.Technology™, though instead of polyamide inserts, precisely shaped cavities are laser-etched out of the top-most sheet of titanal and into the ski’s core, and filled with fiberglass. The alteration of the core with shapes specific to the ski provides a slightly softer torsional flex profile than the FIS line, ensuring constant, chatterless edge control for precise turns at maximum speed.
