    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 Triple Camber profile. 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 flat section underfoot, two more cambered sections fore and aft of the binding, and some 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. 

    The rocker profile of the Deathwish is seriously unusual, but the ski's graphics are downright tame by Moment standards. The polished-marble look is sick, though, and it's 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 about what the squares have to say.

    This is a description of the Moment Deathwish from the ski designer at Moment

    America is all about speed!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hot, nasty, badass speed! The Moment Deatwish is America’s ski! What started out as a Frankenstein project (albeit one better received than the good doctor’s monster), has become one of the most loved, well received skis on the market.

    For my quiver, the Moment Deathwish comes in as the All-Mountain, pow capable, freeride charger. I chose to go with a 184, true center mounted (FKS duel 14), for a playful ski that would be able to handle everything from the picturesque lines dotting Cheater Baldy to the unique chutes and drops found amongst Brighton’s iconic rock garden/cameralands. By forward mounting the Deathwishes, you have access to the front microcamber for precision control while the flat underfoot adds a smooth drifty feel, culminating in the rear microcamber for added stability on the steeps and cliff drops. While at times hard to fathom, the Deathwish is one you need to get on in order to wrap that mind brain of yours around the OG triple camber ski.



    (Pow Capability update: weather pending)

    America is all about speed!

    I just bought these and fks 180's, do you recommend the true center mount?

    Hey Ben,

    Depends on what you're going for. True center would give the ski a bit more playfulness without sacrificing much technical capabilities. However, you could take the mounting point 1-2cm back from true center and gain a bit more stability and control for an all mountain charger.

    EVERY DAY!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Everything you're reading in previous reviews... 100% true. The Deathwish is the most agile, forgiving, playful, carvacious, make-em-say-unhh design out there, and still the one knocking convention on its heels. It's a surfy, slashy powder monkey that puts flat camber skis to shame on hardpack. Light and snappy, super responsive, 4 contact points hold edge incredibly well on hardpack while rockered tips and camber zones keep you afloat in the deep and give that surfy feel of flat camber.
    I got these to replace my all-mountain skis and could not be more stoked!
    For size reference - I'm about 5'6, 135lb... picked these up in a 174cm with a Rossignol FKS 18 (115mm brake) binding.
    Grab a pair if you are looking for a hard-charging but SUPER fun and playful ski that can rip anywhere!
    ***Highly recommended for ALL MOUNTAIN! If you want a blower POW ski, I would definitely go wider and more rockered. This does sink a bit in deeper snow! Great on groomers and up to about 5" of fresh.

    First day on them

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Purchased these recently off of talking to other people on the mountain, and these reviews...also blistergear.com had a good review.

    I mounted them with 22 Design Axl bindings, mounted boot center -2cm from alpine boot center (recommendation from Moment). I'm 155 - 5'-8" and got the 184s. I ski the Tahoe region. After one day on the mountain I'd say this are now my daily drivers, unless there are 12" or more of fresh snow (then the NightTrains come out).

    They do everything that all the reviewers have mentioned. The snow was tracked out heavy powder, with pockets of windblown snow, fast groomers, small bumps, and even hiked up to get some fresh turns in heavy untouched 4" of powder. These handled it all very well...well except for the bumps, but I hate bumps and it was late in the day so my legs were trashed. The rockers helped blow through tracked sierra cement, and kept the tips from diving. The held great edge on the groomers, and felt very much full of life under my feel. With the rockers they skied shorter than my 178s, and had no concerns playing in the trees.

    Initial impressions are 4.5-5, and hopefully I'll have a few more days on them soon to follow up.

    Just can't get enough!

    Been skiing the Deathwish for a few years, and my quiver is slowly dwindling as a result. It is incredible. It's confidence-inspiring and a blast to ski on groomers, in powder, or anywhere in-between. Telepathic might be an even better term. It just knows what you want to do and does it, without punishing you when your technique is lacking. Carving is no issue; tip it over and it grips like none other. High-speed traversing, speed-checking, hopping moguls, shutting it down to squeeze through some trees, then dropping in for some surfy pow turns...I've never skied anything that can do it all so easily. It goes fast without scaring the p*** out of you, it spins and slips sideways in tight quarters without making you work for it, and it makes bell-to-bell snow condition changes a non-issue. I used to be the first to complain that my legs were cooked; now I find myself outlasting my friends, and I'm convinced that it's all because of this ski. It might take you a run or two to get used to, but after that it's all gravy, baby.

    Oh and the new topsheet is super stealth and rad, too.

    Rides like a dream

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ski HARD in the park, pipe, rails, backcountry, tree jibs, you name it. I wanted a one ski quiver killer and this was it for me. The color is elegant, the top finish is a nice textured feel almost like a rough concrete, and I am obsessed with the flat-top style shaping. They butter and flex like crazy, have pop for days, and grind rails as easily as my old park dedicated ski. They are light enough I can throw 360's on flat ground and float on powder. I mounted the Marker Jesters on them for an all black sleek look and to double down on the stubby flat style. My ONLY complaint and 1 star reduction with this ski is that with hard skiing comes wear and tear. The nose cone has some significant signs of riding after only 6 days of riding. Chips here and there and a bit of slicing. This is not a deal killer for me since I am in love with this ski and don't have to go in to my locker and change out skis for different occasions. I am not about to ski softer so I can prolong the life of this ski but I expected more durability especially since it is boasted that they improved the cap. (I would hate to see the old ones). The Dirty Mustache Rocker has torn up everything I can throw at it. These things bite on the groomers and float in the fresh. I mounted them at true center bought the 184's I am 6 foot tall 185lbs.

    By true center, do you mean the manufacture's idea of true center or did you go +1.

    I'm about the same size as you and from your description have similar riding styles. I just got these and will be mounting them soon so I'm happy I came across your post.

    I apologize I did not see this reply sooner. I went +1. The manufacturer true center did not seem "spin-friendly". At 540s and above I have yet to get off axis. Even 360's are smooth. You will not be disappointed with this ski. I get compliments on them often. Let me know what your experience is with them and where you mounted them, I would love to hear what other people think. What bindings did you go with?

    Amazing all around ski!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This ski has a lot going for it. The first time I saw the triple camber I was baffled. The ski just didn't look right strapped together. But looks can be deceiving. I took it out for some laps of icy groomers and was shocked that such a wide ski could hold an edge and make a variety of turn shapes under those conditions. The next time I tried them was with telemark bindings on a resort powder day. Again, the skis excelled. They floated in the soft stuff and bounced their way through the cut up crud in the afternoon. I was hooked. After trying a few other brands, I found this ski to be one of the best resort quiver-killers that I've skied. It can handle everything that a modern ski area can throw at it. Powder, crud, soft or hard groomers, park features, anything! It reminds me of when I first skied the Salomon Pocket Rocket, a totally fresh design that could handle almost any conditions for almost any skier ability. The new semi-cap technology looks great and really seems to up the durability of these skis, making them even better for bashing around the resort. If you need just one ski for resort riding, this is it!

    Awesome all around ski

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've skied the Deathwish for two seasons now and I love how versatile they are. They hold an edge on hard snow and float well in pow. They cut up the crud great and seem to handle everything I throw them into. Even after two seasons of heavy use they are still holding up great.
