A rocker snowboard, also known as a reverse camber snowboard, is a type of snowboard where the tip and tail are curved upward while the middle section (under the bindings) is closer to the snow.

What are the benefits of a rocker snowboard? plus-icon

The rocker shape causes the contact points of the snowboard to be closer to the center, making the board easier to turn and giving it a playful and forgiving feel. The raised portion in the tip and tail helps prevent the board from getting caught in deep snow by improving floatation. This makes rocker snowboards especially suitable for freestyle riding, beginners, park riders, and riding in powder snow.

What are the disadvantages of a rocker snowboard? plus-icon

It is important to note that rocker snowboards may have less stability and edge grip in harder and icy conditions compared to other snowboard shapes, such as camber or hybrid camber. Therefore, choosing a snowboard with a specific profile can depend on your riding style, experience, and the specific conditions in which you want to ride. Lib-tech and Gnu snowboards have implemented Magne-Traction to compensate for loss of grip.
