Skis have a way of cluttering your garage, hallway, closet or wherever it is that you happen to store them. We all know what happens when you simply lean your skis against the nearest available wall – if they don’t fall over right away, they will fall over eventually, often taking a few other choice items with them on their way to the ground.
We’ve reviewed home ski storage racks before, but none specifically address the needs of today’s rockered skis. The aptly named Rocker Ski Rack is made specifically for storing rockered skis and snowboards. The simple yet ingenious design holds a pair of skis or two snowboards without any straps and without compressing camber or rocker. They hold traditional skis just great, too.
The rack holds a pair of skis or a board simply by hanging it in the provided slot, one ski on each side. The twin slots are each created by parallel rods that pivot. The pivoting action is the key to supporting the ski without compression. Rocker Ski Racks are the best off-the-shelf ski storage solution I have used. They offer a simple solution to organized ski storage. To seal the deal, Rocker Ski Rack makes everything in Ashland, Oregon.
As mentioned above, Rocker Ski Racks come in two sizes, regular ($29) and XL ($39). Unless you are hanging nordic skis, I recommend the XL’s as most of today’s powder boards need the added width. The racks are sold individually or in sets pre-mounted to nicely finished wood headers.
