Description

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.

d wish: the ski for you

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these skis ( 190 on sth 16 wtr's mounted at factory mark) early this season as a replacement for a set of 187 liberty helix ( non rocker) skis. Holy moly what can I say. Took them everywhere in all kinds of conditions. 6'3" / 245 i am tall fat and muscle around my skis. these things do not require any real effort to ski in all but, rock hard ice conditions. Stiff tail and super forgiving when you get in the backseat. Float like crazy , remember I am a fat kid, still float like crazy. Rode them for 6 days in a row, all day, most recently in grand county on a nine day trip. Two pretty good dumps, soft conditions ,frozen cond. , even spring like ( 40 deg and bluebird)such a great ski. so much easier to maneuver in the trees , really surfy in the fluff, and railed it on the groomers. If there is a con maybe , just maybe the fact that I couldn't stop on a dime in hardpack is a con ( real hard hardpack). Then again it is 112 under foot and a rockered ski. I definitely don't hold it against the ski. I adjusted and moved on. I was really impressed at how well it turns. This ski turns super quick, not nearly what you would expect from a 27m turn rad. A little chatter at speed but, nothing to really gripe about. Overall I have about 25 days on this ski and if it dies or gets stolen I will not replace it with anything else. Oh and for all the peeps out there questioning the dirty mustache rocker, DON'T . I would compare it to when LibTech introduced magne traction on snowboards. It feels extremely similar as far as grip when making turns on hardpack and varying conditions. I never experienced any toe catch or anything like that. This is my only ski I travel with and I really have no reason to pack a skinnier or wider ski for lift access trips. My hats off to Moment truly an awesome ski, and it is pressed in the U.S. and A.s . One last thing, does the smear turn like no other and comes equipped with a personal force field.

Best ski I ever skied...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I clicked into the Deathwish on a powderday i Austria in November, and fell in love. I never tried an easier skied ski in the off-piste and was very impressed with its abillities on the groomed piste aswell. After trying it there i bougth a pair, and it is now my new "all mountain" ski, used for piste skiing when i work as a Rep for a danish skicompany, and for offpiste in any kind of snow. I would claim that this ski has something for everyone, regardless og wether you are the hardcore offpiste skier og the allround family guy who also takes a few trips with the guys doing powder, with the best of them.

The end all be all!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One of the best skis I have ever clicked into! Not for the faint hearted! Wants to charge and blow away what ever you serve up to them. You won't be disappointed!!

Which binding is recommended and what...

Posted on

Which binding is recommended and what setting, my weight 88 kg and my height should be 172cm, for Moment Deathwish Ski 174cm?

Responded on

Edson,
The Marker Royal Family would be a good option. Specifically I would recommend the Marker Griffon or the Jester if you like a high DIN binding for more agressive riding.

Death'd and gone to Heaven

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Oh, you didn't read all the reviews or see the bajillion awards the Deathwish picked up recently? Here's the dirty: it's the best all-around pow ski for people who like a more centered stance and a slashy, forgiving, floaty ski that can still carve groomers. It's the best ski I've ever skied in my life. I'm on the 184 and the only thing I would say in the negative is that I want a little more ski for really pushing it on big days. That's why I am picking up the 190 this year, because after skiing it in Jackson, it's perfect if you want a little more ski without feeling overwhelmed. I'm 5'10 175, so if you're a huge guy or gal or an ex-racer, this isn't your ski. But if you're average sized, above-average ability, and you want to spread a doo-doo-eating grin across your mug every time you click in and shred, PICK THESE UP and NEVER LOOK BACK. What? Only five stars available? Need 69 at least...this thing's broken.

What is the straight pull length of these boards (tip to tail)?

Best Answer Responded on

According to Blister Gear Reviews, the 190cm is 188.27cm for the actual tip-to-tail length (straight tape pull). Hope that helps! Heres the link to page I got that number from: http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/2012-2013-moment-deathwish-190cm

Awesome. Ill just assume the 184 measurement is around ~182ish

Making love to the mountain

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've already written a review for this ski last year, but sense the DW came back unchanged this year why not write another. I originally skied the deathwish last year at a ski demo and after skiing them i went out and bought myself a pair. this ski makes the entire mountain a playground. There are harder charging skis and more playful park skis but sense im not a park rat nor a GS racer i wanted a ski that blended the best of both worlds and the deathwish doesn't disappoint. I'm 6'3 205-210 and this ski isn't a stiff charger but wont hesitate to get up to speed and rail. I love to slash this ski excels at that. jumps no problem. This is truly a one ski quiver.

Will you be selling this ski in any other...

Will you be selling this ski in any other size than 190 this season?

Responded on

We will be getting some skis in the 184 and 174 sizes. Should expect those in around the middle to end of November, just check back and keep praying for snow!
