Meridian Tour Ski
A lighter, touring-specific version of Moment's beloved Meridian 107, the Men's Meridian Tour Ski has all the tools for downhill fun without weighing you down on the skintrack. Coming in at just over 7 pounds per pair in the 181-centimeter size, you'll have plenty of juice left in the legs to style your line—and then go back up for another lap. Its rockered profile and 107-millimeter waist provide plenty of float and nimbleness in powder, but still maintains efficiency on icy skintracks, thanks to the gradual shape of the rocker.
The Meridian Tour's lightweight paulownia wood core gives it a poppy, responsive feel on the descent, yet provides enough dampening for a stable ride. Carbon and fiberglass keep the torsionally stiff for efficient power transfer, and high-quality UHMW sidewalls deliver a confidence-inspiring edge hold should you encounter any unexpectedly firm snow.

- Q & A
I haven't skied these yet since it's only October, but I wanted to share why I bought these and what my initial impressions are "out of the box".
I owned a pair of carbon fiber touring skis before these, and they were too stiff in the shovel, making them difficult to turn, especially in no-fall zones above rappels. So I was on the hunt for a new pair of touring skis that would be easier to turn and, honestly, more fun to ski.
The 107 underfoot was attractive to me because it's good for everything--powder, wind crust, frozen snot, you name it. The full rocker will make the skis easy to handle, which is what I want on the downhill. The turning radius on these is a little less than I'm used to, but I'm hoping that will be a nice change from the mega radius of my old planks.
Very excited to try these out this season! Hoping they're not too soft for my taste. :)
