the base graphic that you saw isn't even the real base. Thats a generic base we use for prototypes, testing, or when we simple don't have a graphic. In this case the graphic isn't done yet. Its coming very soon though and I will post images as soon as its done.
Anyone have a link the the pic of the prototype base?
"some were liek how many sides does a rhombus was i had no idea ont he cups in 5.5 gallons and what time period we are in but besides those i think im smarter thena 5th grader"
A lot of their skis are in prototype stages though, and can't afford to make more than one size.
Therefore they go with the size most people will ski on. I imagine most people are 5'10-ish... at least, so they make quite a few sks around 180-ish.
I'd like to see the Ruby at 171... although I'm not sure it's dimensions at 171 would be ideal.
I'd REALLY like to see Rockers at 171... maybe next season?
I understand where you smaller guys are coming from but our rocker press is not adjustable. It costs a lot of time and a lot of money to make one for a rocker like a 171. I will see what I can do but we might need to make a 171 before SIA at the end of January...which translates to a mid-season Rocker 171 release with very limited quantities...This may be able to happen if we get some support for the idea. Email your wants and needs for a smaller rockered ski to email@example.com
Thanks a lot to everyone for the continued input, comments, insults, high-fives, and support.
good point, being small really is an advantage for a lot of indie companies. since they can talk to their market directly and its easier to get customer feedback to the people that design the skis. its rare that a thread on newschoolers about a ski from a big company would refered to by the people who designed it when making the new ski.(with the exception of maybe K2 since schmies is on here a lot)
but ive never seen an indie company take advantage of customer feedback as much as moment, so for that i have a lot of respect.
Well, I'm definitely in for the idea of a 171 Rocker... but I'm probably getting some new skis at the beginning of this up-coming season (probably Jibs, thanks Moment!!), so depending on my money situation around March I may get another pair of skis (Rockers, but only if I am able to get new skis). If not, I'm more than willing to wait 'til next season for Rockers... 'cause I know it'll be worth it.
I'm already likin' Moment, and I haven't even skied on a pair yet. On my wish-list are already like 3 Moment skis, Jibs, Rockers & Ruby's. I don't think I'll even consider other companies when I buy new skis..., lol. Moment have the skis for everything, all-mountain (Tahoes, Renos,), big mountain (Rubys, Comis, Comi-Kazis, M1, Melee), jibbin' (Reno Jibs & Reno Rockers, Melee). Only thing they don't have is on-piste cr*p, and I'm glad they don't.
Moment just seems like the perfect ski company...
I wish there was a company like this in Vancouver... It'd be so easy to buy skis... and I'd do whatever I could to help the company... and I'd pretty much just buy one of each model of their skis at once... Lol. It would probably cost me a fortune... I might as well own the company.
if your TMs feel heavy, good luck finding something you consider to be light. while i've never skied a pair of the moments, i can't imagine them being very much lighter than TMs without sacrificing in the durability department.
im really pumped about moment skis... they seem like they are going out of their way for customers much more than any other company out there and their skis look amazing. I am totally getting a pair of reno jibs or rockers for this season... just not sure which ones yet. These guys rock
