Stick the Moment Deathwish Skis base to base and show them to your traditionalist, camber loving friend, and his first reaction is likely be, what the hell' His second reaction will also be, what the hell' And his third reaction will be, no way, dude. Cut this philistine some slack, though it's not his fault he can't appreciate 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. The polished marble look is sick, though, and it's protected by a crystal clear nylon topsheet to stay fresh and clean the whole season long. Of course, the aesthetics are secondary, with the light, lively aspen and pine 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 dampening 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.
