A big-mountain crusher.
Some people see you skiing full-throttle down a wickedly steep line and think you have a death wish. They just don't know you're that good. You're in control, and you have the Moment Deathwish Ski underfoot. This groundbreaking ski has already seen a ton of accolades in the ski world, thanks to its 112mm fat waist and Dirty Mustache Rocker profile. Four contact points along each edge bite into the snow, letting it rip turns on hardpack. Meanwhile tip and tail rocker and micro-camber underfoot allow the Deathwish to be slashy and effortless in pow, stable in crud, and groomer-gripping like a boss.
Built with tough Extruded UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) Polyethylene sidewall construction, the Deathwish is extremely durable, light, and resistant to separation. To make the Deathwish almost universally versatile, Moment engineers gave it a poppy, lightweight aspen and pine wood core that makes it as sweet and playful on a powder day as it is on freshly groomed corduroy. The use of pine also makes the Deathwish extremely durable with solid rebound properties and a long flex life so you're not skiing on a wet noodle by mid-season. To further enhance flex-profile longevity, Moment incorporated carbon tow threads in the laminate matrix design.Edges can be a game-changer, especially when you blow one out or when they are hardly thick enough to withstand a season of tuning, so Moment equipped the Deathwish with 2.2mm Rockwell 48 steel edges. Shipped from Austria already hardened to 48 Rockwell, Moment then performed additional heat-treating in-house to adjust the hardness and ductility of the steel to ensure you get the most life out of your ski. Oh, and we can't forget Moment's US-made Durasurf 4001 sintered base material that can take a beating while staying fast. Harder and with better wax absorption properties than extruded bases, sintered bases are the industry standard for performance and longevity.
If you're looking for a conversation-starter in the tram or liftline, you can point out the Deathwish's wicked sweet graphics done by artist Max Louis Miller. Afterwards, prepare to surf, smear, and pivot like you wrote the book, then sculpt groomers on your way back to the lift.
