Description

A touring machine for big-mountain skiers who get after it in the backcountry.

After seasons of schlepping in the backcountry on your big-mountain or powder planks, rejoice. Moment has designed a model specifically for alpine touring—the Moment Exit World Ski. With this lightweight touring beast, you'll send it in February blower or munch on sweet April corn. The loop-friendly tip and notched tail love your skins, and the freeride dimensions, Mustache Rocker versatility, and light paulownia and ash core make this an AT ski worth drooling over.

Thanks to the Exit World's Mustache Rocker, its rockered tip and tail feel loose and playful in variable snow, easily float through pow, and bust through crud both on the uphill and downhill. Designed with a traditional camber underfoot, this AT ski gives you high-speed stability and edge hold on hardpack, which come in super-handy during less-than-stellar days in the backcountry.

Built with tough Extruded UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) Polyethylene sidewall construction, the Exit World is extremely durable, light, and resistant to separation. Moment engineers gave the Exit World a paulownia wood core that provides a similar flex and damping properties to aspen. As a result, they were able to drastically reduce the weight of the Exit World without affecting the performance and longevity of the ski. Ash stringers add outstanding stiffness without feeling excessively damp and offer solid binding retention under high stress when your tour. To further enhance flex longevity Moment used carbon tow threads to 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 Exit World with 2.2mm Rockwell 48 steel edges. Shipped from Austria already hardened to 48 Rockwell, Moment performs 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.

To add to the Exit World's allure, Moment gave it some wicked sweet graphics designed by Young Monster to give you and your touring partners buddies something to ponder and discuss on long tours. All in all, the Exit World serves as a new-school backcountry touring machine that lets you punch your own uphill/downhill ticket.

What disadvantages is there if this ski...

Posted on

What disadvantages is there if this ski were mounted with an alpine binding and used primarily at a lift served ski resort? Let me know of the limitations and if the ski and binding plate could take this stress.
Thanks

There really aren't any. The ski is very wide, so it'll be a little harder to control on hardpack, and the turn radius isn't exactly carve-friendly, but in terms of the stresses on the ski, it'll handle those just fine. After all, an AT setup is just an alpine setup on the way down.

It used to be that sacrifices in strength were made to keep AT skis light, but that's not the case anymore with modern materials.

Trying to decide between the 174 and 184....

Trying to decide between the 174 and 184. I am 5'6" and ski aggressively. Currently ski on 175 JJ's which seem a touch small. Will this ski feel a similar length to the JJ?

Hello Dwayne,

Not sure if this will help, but there is some discussion on sizing in this article!

Hey Dwayne,

Ive skied both the JJ and exit world and find that the JJ skis shorter than the Exit World for sure. So you will find the 174 Exit world skis longer than the 175 JJ.

Hope this helps!

Gotta get up to get down

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

Just spent my first weekend on these in Colorado, touring up Buttermilk and riding lifts at Snowmass. My setup is 184 Exit World, Dynafit Vertical FT 12 w/ 4.5mm B&D shims mounted on the line, Dalbello Sherpa 5/5 boots. First, I was surprised at how light the Exit World was. They may not be a ton lighter than the Bibby, and part of it is definitely the tech binding, but they didn't feel heavy at all for a 115-waist ski. At Buttermilk, we had about 6 inches of superlight pow over a week-old base, and they skied great, farming turns when needed and remaining stable when pushed faster, even over uneven ruts and drainage ditches. Using skins was easy (easier than any other Moments, at least) thanks to the round tips and indented tails; I used Black Diamond Ascensions with no problems at all. On hardpack, they took a little time to get used to, especially with the stiff Dynafit toe making them feel harsher than an alpine setup. After a couple of laps, however, I was able to rail turns with confidence and really push as fast as I wanted without getting any sort of chatter. On crusty refreeze, they were definitely skittish, but I'll put that down to the light setup and non-elastic toe. If I could have whatever I want in life, I'd have a pair of these with alpine or hybrid bindings like Dukes, and a pair with Dynafits. I'm betting they'd be absolutely killer paired up with alpine gear, just like the Bibby was, only a tad lighter. As it stands, I'm pumped to have these for touring regardless and the powder performance is definitely on the money.

Bibby Light

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

This ski is essentially the original Bibby Pro model design(http://www.backcountry.com/moment-bibby-pro-model-alpine-ski-mmt0061) except that it is slightly less stiff, weighs slightly less (i believe a pound per ski or a pound per pair, cant remember which their rep told me), and has the skin friendly tip and tail. So they made the perfect touring ski.
If you look at the reviews on the bibby you will see that I, along with a lot of other people, had nothing but praise for the bibby and this holds true for the exit world. I currently use that Bibby for touring but had the opportunity to demo the exit world at Alta last season and man did I love it. Its lightweight, the mustache rocker rips and will be a perfect touring ski for the wasatch and other big mountain, deep pow locations. I was sad they changed the bibby this year (because I love mine so much), but when I saw this ski I realized they pretty much just renamed it. Another great product from Moment!

I'd also like to note that the 190cm is 117mm underfoot as opposed to the 174cm & 184cm which are 115mm underfoot.
