Ungodly beast-creature would be an understatement.
The Jaguar Shark Ski from Moment is for those who hunt on elusive days when the crystalline fluff is deep enough to singe the nostrils with each breath. The traditional camber underfoot and in the tail yields a powerful and classic turn exit while the rockered tip rises up from the deeps like a great white's dorsal fin. Now that you've identified your power animal, you can channel the Jaguar Shark's energy and make the kill when the storm of the season blows through your neck of the woods.
- The Front Rocker profile sports traditional camber underfoot and in the tail for high-speed stability and edge power while a rockered tip floats you in the blower
- The aspen and ash core is strong and light, it soaks up vibration, and it's made entirely with FSC-certified lumber
- Carbon fiber stringers combine with fiberglass laminates to provide maximum strength against torsional twisting and to fine-tune the flex of the ski
- With 116mm underfoot, we dare say this boat is unsinkable
- The extruded UHMW polyethylene sidewall resists separation and is light and durable
- The 1.2mm sintered Durasurf base takes a beating while staying super-fast
- The 2.2mm Edge is hardened to 48 Rockwell and has undergone additional heat treating to ensure the long life and sharp bite of these boards
- All Moment skis are proudly handmade in the good old USA

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Possibly the best ski I've ever had. It's stiff and snappy and extremely responsive. I'm 6'1, 180lbs and ride the 182 - it's aggressive, relatively unforgiving but a whole world of fun. The most impressive thing is how lightweight it is, as with all Moment skis. It's plenty fat enough and has just enough early rise to really shred when it's deep but the relatively traditional shape makes it lay down at Mach 10 on the groomer. It cuts bumps in half and accelerates like a rocket. Definitely my one ski quiver.

looking at mounting hammerhead tele bindings and wondering what the proper position would be for an aggressive skier, was thinking -1 from boot
I have Dynafits mounted on the Jags at the suggested position and think they're perfect there for a fixed heeler. I also ski while pressing the tips hard. With that said, I imagine 1-2cm behind the line will work best for a tele setup.
As an all mountain freeheeler, I always go at recommended line, or further forward. But for this ski and its intended ski type, factory recommend.
Another ski in the ?meh? pile. Some of this might be due to the fact that I got on it right after the Deathwish knocked my socks off. What can be said is that the Jaguar Shark skies like it wants to grow up to be the Deathwish. On exactly the same course I had to reign in the Jaguar Shark at the transitions between snow types and generally work a little harder carving and getting edge to edge. Certainly a competent ski in most every regard but for very similar dimensions my eyes were firmly fixed on the Deathwish as the go to ski in the Moment arsenal.
