Keep the fun alive.

Stick the Moment Deathwish Skis base to base and show them to your traditionalist, camber-loving friend, and his first reaction is likely be "What the hell?" His second reaction will also be "What the hell?", and his third reaction will be "No way, dude." Cut this philistine some slack, though--it's not his fault he can't appreciate the beautiful subtleties of Moment's Dirty Mustache Rocker. While most skis opt for full camber, full rocker, or camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail, the Deathwish takes things a step or three further by building in a short section of low camber underfoot, two more cambered sections fore and aft of the binding, and generous rocker in the tip and tail for a mind-bending combination of hardpack edge hold and playful powder looseness. When you're riding the ski relatively flat, it can pivot and surf like a rockered ski, but get it up on edge and it'll bite into the snow like a hungry tiger into a juicy steak. 

If the rocker profile of the Deathwish looks unusual, it's right in line with Moment's famously trippy graphics. Designed by Max Louis Miller, the slightly twisted artwork on the Deathwish is protected by a crystal-clear nylon topsheet to stay fresh and clean the whole season long. Of course, the aesthetics are secondary, with the light, lively aspen and pine core, stiff fiberglass laminates, and pop-enhancing carbon fiber stringers rightfully taking the top billing, seeing as they keep the Deathwish stiff on hardpack and playful in powder. The UHMW sidewalls, burly steel edges and speedy sintered base can take shots without calling it quits, and Moment even threw in dampening VDS rubber layers for a smooth ride and a reinforced layer underfoot for bomber binding mounts. It might not be traditional, but the Deathwish has more important things on its mind than worrying what the squares have to say.
