    Details

    No room for doom and gloom here.

    While it might be a shade difficult to abstain from cringing when you read the name 'Moment Deathwish Ski,' take note and remember what your dear ole Ma told you years ago—"don't judge a book by its cover." So, case in point, the Deathwish is anything but doomsday and terrible, in fact its construction is quite contrary thanks to 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. For all of you mid-century modern hipsters, the polished-marble look is pretty darn slick and it's protected by a sublimated nylon topsheet to stay fresh and clean the whole season long. Of course, the aesthetics are secondary, with the light and lively aspen 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 vibration-damping 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.

    • A unique, fun-hogging ski for just about all freeride conditions
    • 112mm width waist is super stable and aggressive
    • Triple Camber Twin Rocker is both stable and poppy
    • Steel edges and sintered base charge hard through chunder
    • Ash core is highly durable, poppy, and responsive
    • Item #MMT001Q

    5 Stars!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    To be honest, when I was looking at this ski I was mostly just lusting after it. Didn't really need it, but just really wanted it in my quiver.

    Soooo happy I broke down & bought it. This ski is simply one of the best skis I've ridden. It is actually the closest thing to a do it all ski that I've ever ridden.

    Want to charge, check! Want to ski powder, check! Want to rail groomers, check! Want to pop off & jib stuff, check! Want to make tech turns on exposure, check! You name it this ski can handle it.

    Moment has hit a home run with this one. I don't often tell people to go buy a specific ski, but this is the exception. Go get your pair, you won't be disappointed!

    Yum. Yum yum. The yummiest.

      Alright. Get ready for heated debate and smack-talking. I'm about to make a bold claim.

      If I could only have ONE waist width for a ski. ONE. O-N-E... It would be 112mm underfoot. No more, no less. 112mm on the dot.

      For resort riding on ice, chop, pow, leftovers, frozen chunder, corduroy, hero-style spring corn, ANY conditions accessible via chairlift, 112mm underfoot is that Goldilocks juuuuust-right width that's not too skinny to float fluff, but not too fat to maneuver on a dime.

      I'm a card-carrying member of the Church of Chubby Skis--I'm very upfront about that bias. Any daily driver that I choose will be 100mm underfoot minimum, and I'm happy as a clam to ride 115-120mm underfoot in the fluff (or the layer of white cement we call "pow" back home in Oregon).

      But if you held a squirt-gun full of blue Powerade to my head (the horror!) and made me choose ONE ski for the rest of my life, I'd blurt out 112mm underfoot in an instant--and what's more, that 112mm underfoot ski would be the Moment Deathwish.

      Stiff. Rowdy. Powerful camber for railing high speed turns. Nimble mid-twenties medium turn radius zips through aspen glades, yet can open it up in wide-open bowls. Generous shovel. Generous tip and tail rocker. Nearly indestructible edges and a hardy topsheet. The Deathwish is THE rig.

      I have the privilege of not only living in the American West, but also the ability to own multiple pairs of skis in my quiver (Black Crows for touring, Moments for tele, 4FRNTs for all-mountain debauchery, Armadas for deeeeep days), but if I were to, I don't know... Have to bring only one ski to Cham or Japan or Tahoe for a season, the Deathwish is the one. I appreciate having a wide selection of skis to choose from, but the Deathwish would be my weapon of choice.

      Just a bit of rambling and two and a half cents from yer favorite BC ski dweeb. Carry on.

      America's ski!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      In the wise words of Elanor Roosevelt " America is built on speed... dirty, hot, badass speed!" As with America, the Deathwish was also built on speed! One of the most mind bending profiles to ever hit the market, Moment's Deathwish has blasted through the freshies straight to our hearts and has been a crowd pleaser ever since.



      With the 184cm Length mounted -2cm from true center, the Deathwish's triple camber profile is truly able to shine! The flat, drifty profile underfoot make the 112mm underfoot feel smooth without being overly cumbersome for the size. While drifting about the slopes with a proper McConkey slide, stability at higher speeds will never pose an issue as the fore and aft micro cambers will give you that needed grip when it's time to get rad and shred some GNAR!

      America's ski!

      The Moment Deathwish 5 stars.

      I am 6 foot, 3 in€™, 190lbs and I have been riding the 2016 190 cm Deathwish for 1 year. It is a blast! A true all mountain and shredder! It is light, fast and playful. It surfs excellent in powder, powers through chop, carves groomers and remains stable whatever the situation.



      Moment accomplishes this with their Triple Camber “dirty mustache” technology. It allows the ski respond with rocker in the powder while maintaining camber on the hard pack and on those sketchy traverses. When you see the ski you will understand the “dirty mustache” name and learn to love it as soon as you ski!!



      The Moment team really knows what they are doing and this handmade ski is a true testament to their heritage. Being based out of Reno, NV the skis are evolved from the Sierra and can shred any snow type. An early spring day in Tahoe can mean early morning north facing powder and Southern spring corn in the afternoon. While chasing these conditions as the day progresses you encounter everything from chunky ice to heavy slop. No need to swap skis mid-day here! The Deathwish handles all with ease and is truly a one ski quiver. This is why I give this ski 5 stars



      It is my go to when I travel. I have it set up as a telemark ski for backcountry and resort because I know it will perform. It is a little heavy on the assents but Moment has a solution for that. Please see the other recommendations below.
