        Overall

        Overall, the Moment Bibby is the best ski I have experienced in years. What I want out of a ski is always changing, but over the years I have learned more and more about what I want, and the Bibby is good enough to eliminate the need of a quiver. I am starting to think about trying something new out next year, but I big part of me is wanting to say "fuck it" and buy some new Bibby's. For me, that's something special. Out of all the camber/rocker profile skis that all the companies are putting out these days, the Bibby is by far the most impressive one in my opinion.

        Performance

        As said earlier, these are the best skis I have ever used. I spend most of my time skiing in the Kootenays, meaning a lot of pillow lines, tight steep trees, chutes, couloirs, and some alpine bowls.... These skis were designed with that in mind (Bibby, being from Vernon spends most of his time skiing the same type of terrain) so it's a no brainer that they excel in such terrain.

        Two downfalls for me are:

        Weight: They are a big, stiff ski - so it's no surprise that they are on a bit of the heavier side. throw some Dukes on there and they are one of the heavier touring set ups around. I was all like "who gives a fuck" for a while, but I am now starting to wonder if a lighter set up would be nice. If you're just skiing inbounds, this won't really be a factor, and if you tour, you're probably already aware of this - I just thought it should be mentioned.

        Flex: Now, I know that I said earlier that I love the flex - and I do. The stiffness kind of takes a bit of playfulness out of the ski. I have other skis in my quiver that I use if I want to be more playful. If someone could one day make a stiff playful ski... well, there would be no need for a quiver now would there. If you want a more playful ski, try to find the 08/09 Bibby, it's 186 with a softer flex.

        Design

        the camber/rocker ("mustache" if you will) profile is awesome. You still have great edge points for carving, with just the right amount of rocker for getting all bouncy with your pow. at 118mm underfoot it's wide enough for even the deepest days. I have never gone wider than 118, so I don't really have much to compare that to, but I've always thought that anything over 120mm underfoot is just overkill.

        Value

        While not as cheep as Bluehouse, it is cheeper than a lot of the bigger brands out there, but if you are buying them from a store with no sort of discount, they will still cost you a few shinny coins. I will continue this in the next box.

        Fit

        I'm not totally certain, but I think the Bibby comes in all kinds of sizes these days. At 6'1" I found that the 190 was the perfect size for me. I actually bought last years Bibby (10/11) in a 184 before this season started, but before I mounted them I decided they were probably going to be slightly too short for me and got rid of them.

        Characteristics

        I love the flex on this ski. This is my third year on the Bibby and it is by far my most favorite ski I have ever used. Before, I was skiing the JJ and found that the flex was very odd (really stiff in the middle, but super soft on nose and tail)... it was a pleasure to switch from that to a ski with a more even flex across the whole ski. Not the stiffest skis I have ever touched (7/10 for stiffness I would say), but the even flex overall makes it a super solid ski that's great for stomping.

        Durability

        While they are up there in the $600+ range, they are bomber. Everyone I know who has owned a pair of Moments will tell you how well they are made. To put it bluntly - I break skis. If I can get a full season out of my equipment I am stoked. I am over halfway through my 3rd season on these skis and they are still killer. The base takes a lot of abuse (but I still managed to get some core shots in there), the edges have yet to even crack, and other than super minor delam issues on the nose and tail (a little epoxy and it's all good), the ski just keeps taking abuse.

        Overall

        They held up amazingly at high speeds. Killed it in the pow and slayed groomers. Its a perfect ski for a sub 5 10 person.

        Performance

        Yes it was my do it all ski, SLay groomers hit 3 feet of blower in snowbird. Shitty day ski.

        Design

        I wish the tails were a little stiffer like the 190 but for me at that time they were $$.

        Value

        Yes I got them for 300$ with jesters IN MINT condition.

        Fit

        They are 186s perfect for me when I was 5' 8" 145lbs.

        Characteristics

        They are soft in tip and a little stiffer in the tail.

        Durability

        30-40 days and the bases were perfect but slight top sheet chipping.

        Overall

        The Bibby is an absolute slayer when it comes to charging hard and going big in deep snow. No other ski I've been on has given me the confidence to rip as hard and fast as these do. On trail they are a blast and can rip up park as long as you are willing to deal with a little heavier swing weight. Slow spins are steezier anyways...

        Performance

        This is the greatest ski I have ever been on by far. Utterly fantastic wherever you take em.In powder they float good, I have been on several fatter more powder specific boards that floated better, but none charge as hard as these when it comes to deep snow. They like to go fast and stomp cliffs; they aren't the most playful skis in powder, but they can turn a big mountain face into the bunny hill. They rip so hard they make you beam smiles.On groomers their playfulness comes out. They still charge hard and can rip the hardpack as well as almost any twin on the market, but they are super fun to play around on. I still ride these in the park over my park skis frequently cause its just a blast to butter and slide around with the big rocker and soft flex. And they stomp landings on big jumps great too, who woulda thunk it. Skiing switch is easier on these than my park skis cause of the soft tip and the stability at speed. They're even a hoot in the pipe. They are very responsive and light for a powder ski, making burlier pow skis like the EP Pros feel lifeless.

        Design

        Awesome awesome awesome topsheet with bases that are just as cool. Me gusta mucho.

        Value

        I paid $625 for these when they first came out and haven't regretted it a day since. This ski is so great I would have paid twice that in a heartbeat.

        Fit

        I'm riding the 186 and am only 150lbs. Even so I've had absolutely no trouble at all skiing this ski at this size.

        Characteristics

        The flex is fairly stiff right under foot, but it quickly turns into a a medium/soft flex in the tip and tail, with it being slightly stiffer in the tail. The flex is absolutely PERFECT. Somehow they've found a flex that can both cushion landings and stomp them, while still being flexy enough to jib around on and have a blast. Impossibly good.

        Durability

        The edges are strong and the bases are some of the most durable I'n seen. I've only gotten a little rock chunk stuck in the base once after landing on an exposed granite boulder. It should of ripped the base off but the base ripped the rock off instead. The topsheet does chip but thats just cosmetic. Besides, nothing could take away from how great these skis look.

        Overall

        I would recommend this to a fiend any day, I would just say get the right size.

        Performance

        Yeah, I slayed the powder and fat cliffs all season. They worked pretty well all over the mountain. I skied them almost everyday, but they were a little long so I rode my other skis quite a bit as well.

        Design

        Look they were sick, a little plain tho since I got one of their first ones without all the colors.

        Value

        Great deal, performed extremely well all over the mountain for the price.

        Fit

        I am 6'2" and 155lbs, and these felt a little long for me. Would definitely have bought them in a smaller size.

        Durability

        Never had any major damage, only some minor ptex repairs and waxing every week.

        Overall

        The Bibby Pro is the perfect everyday ski if you want to charge hard in every condition. They will make skiing gnarly lines super fun and allow you to mach down as fast as you want as you point to the slow people and laugh.

        Support USA and by Moment Skis.

        Performance

        These skis destroy all in every condition and will make you the best skier on the mountain, unless I'm there because I'm better than you.

        24" of 2% snow? Kills it. Day old crud? Kills it. Moguls? Kills it (but I grew up skiing bumps). Groomers? Kills it. Trees and tight spots? Kills it. Will get you chicks? Ohhh yeah. Will make you famous? Of course.

        Design

        The Bibby Pro is one of the first skis from Moment to feature mustache rocker. There's camber underfoot to increase hardpack performance, and the rockered tips/tails make the ski playful in powder and all you to smear your turns while making McConkey proud.

        Value

        Been skiing the Bibby Pro since early 2009 and I've yet to get a core shot in over 80 days. The skis hold up today as they did back when I first go them.

        Characteristics

        Stiff flex all throughout. On a scale of 1-10, probably put it around a 6-7. The Bibby Pro is plenty stiff to handle hardpack and firm snow at high speeds, yet playful in powder at the same time.

        Durability

        I dare you to find a more durable, more rad ski on this planet.
