I couldn't really see myself buying a ski without seeing it in a shop first, I'm shallow like that. Its gotta look good. But I took a chance, and am stoked I did. Support these guys, Moment is a sick company and they stand behind their gear. I even got a free shirt with my skis, sick!
The ski is wicked, its light, snappy, and fun everywhere. Our first day this season was last week and most of the day was knee to hip deep and they were rad in it, when there was mostly just tracked out snow, they ran through that shit like an undrafted Denver Broncos running back. They eat up anything you can throw at them... I even shorted up on a rock gap and hardly got a scratch. (just a dent in the base. hahaha)The next few days was just groomer, roller, gap and drop skiing and they just murderlized it.
I have nothing bad to say about these skis. Square tips are sick, rockers are sick, Trex's with sunglasses are sick, and random tiny type is sick! I doubt you'll get your hands on these skis, unless they press some more. But if you can, kill it, best ski ever! I generally say that about every ski I get, but this time I mean it!!!!!!!!
They do exactly what I want them to do. They turn great and all that gay stuff. The rocker is sick, best idea ever for a ski. Right up there with Magna! Lots of pop I think, and as long as you land on your feet good they ride away from everything I have tried on them. Slide on rails and boxes like any other ski, and are like wearin nothin' at all, nothin at all, nothin at all. (stupid sexy flanders!)
Ok if I was blind or couldnt see designs for some reason, the super dope top sheet and base wouldnt matter. However, I have 20/20 vision and I think the designs on this ski are far ahead of anything out there as far as skis go. Closest to the Burton 7 lmtd.(Trevor Andrews board) I like the astronauts best, they make me want to be a spaceman!
Super duper light in your hand, combined with a Solomon sth16, wow, WOW!
I think anything you order from the states right now is a good value, if you live in Canadia. But these are priced good regardless.
On a scale of 1 to wow, these are a Jennifer Garner as a hooker in Catch me if you can type value... so worth it!
Perfect mount point at center, great length at 180, sick width for everything. Grass runs to knee deep!
Super duper mega soft.
Dont kid yourself, if you want a regular flex ski for all mountain and park... you wont be down with the rocker. I love the flex, super easy to initiate butters and keep them going, and easy to tip stand! The tails could use a little more stiffness I feel though. I am a pretty big guy and it took me quite a few runs to adjust to how soft they are back there.
Tip: if you drop something on these skis, land on the balls of your feet, if you land on your heels, you will most likely wash out.
So far, and Ive only had 5 or 6 jib days in the city, a few drops, 1 or 2 rails and some boxes, and 4 days in the mountains. I could see them lasting the season... I hope!
