Bibby's back, back again.
Bibby's back, tell a friend—or don't. After all, as the old phrase goes there's "no friends on a powder day." But good luck containing your excitement over the newly updated reincarnation of Moment's beloved Bibby Pro Ski. As OG Bibby enthusiasts know, unrequited love when it comes to a material object can feel futile, but in this case, absence surely has made the heart grow fonder. This winter, the Bibby Pro touts a few tweaks, albeit minor ones, meaning you can drink up that sweet-sweet nectar of planked perfection.
If you're a Bibby diehard, stop reading and go buy a few already. However, if you haven't already sampled the powdered fruit-punch drink, allow us to explain why it's so tasty. The Bibby is an idyllic combination of all things skiing a solid pair of planks entails (stability, power, playfulness, quickness, surfiness, stompiness), and it's capable of shredding just about anything you care to point it at. Moment built it on a snappy but stable aspen and pine core to balance dampness, energy, and stiffness, and sandwiched the wood between multi-directional fiberglass and carbon-fiber stringers, so it stays stiff and stable when you're railing turns but maintains enough pop to boost off terrain features so you don't need to keep your skis glued to the snow. Moment skipped out on metal entirely, which avoids the damp but dead feel that plagues more one-dimensional skis.
A few years back, the Bibby boasted a design that made it a pow-specific jib ski, but this redesign has brought the Bibby back to its more directional roots. Moment's Mustache Rocker combines decent amounts of tip and tail rocker with a solid cambered section underfoot, giving the Bibby a nearly unparalleled ability to float over soft snow, charge through chop, and slash big sideways turns when conditions call for it. The tails are simple to break out when you need to scrub speed, and the Rockwell 48 steel edges have been covered with a VDS rubber damping layer for a smoother, less chattery feel on hardpack. Not to mention, Moment's updated the Bibby with a more durable semi-cap construction, which helps prevent topsheet chipping and edge blowouts, so it'll be a more durable ski that ever.

If you like to float like a butterfly and lay trench like a derailed freight train full of Ozzy Osbournes, then buy this ski immediately. The Moment Bibby is the ultimate resort shredding tool for those who seek to ski with the fluidity and precision of Beethoven, and the ferocity of Iggy and the Stooges turned to eleven.
I am 5'8" 170 lbs and ski the 184 as my daily driver at Snowbird and Alta. This ski allows me to charge 2-20" of fresh pow, chop, corn, soft groomers, and even moguls at full throttle. Healthy rocker to keep your tips up in blower pow, stiff flex pattern in the camber underfoot to hook up remain stable when driving the ski, and rocker in the back to let you pivot on a dime.
The Bibby is for the skier who is hungry to thread the needle on the line that most don't even see to grab that last powder stash with epic style and speed. At the same time, it can shut down and scrub speed without a fuss when your symphonic skills get out of tune.
Bases are made from a combination of Admamantium and Mythril and will handle more than a fair share of abuse.
I have my pair mounted with Pivot 14s on the recommended line (-6cm), and they are going strong after two long seasons.
