Garbones Skis 2011: A little love for Craig Garbiel, Subaru’s Squaw Valley USA Freeskiing Open champ, the Moment
Garbones Skis have a rigid and stable platform, thanks to two layers of triaxial fiberglass and aspen/pine core. Massive air, impact, float and control all come with this pro model that hits the big-mountain conditions like there’s no tomorrow.
For the directional charger, the Tip Rocker profile gives the ski the strength and edging power of a cambered ski with a strong tail, while the rockered tip speeds turn initiation, blasts through the crud, and planes quickly in the powder.
UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) sidewalls are extremely light, durable and resistant to separation
4001 DuraSurf sintered base can take a beating while staying fast. They are harder and have better wax absorption than extruded bases. Moment uses sublimated graphics to eliminate the cracking and peeling common on die-cut bases
carbon fiber stringers provide more pop and snap and are extremely strong and lightweight
VDS dampening system
Triaxial fiberglass, woven in a 0°/45°/-45° fashion, provides maximum strength and resistance against twisting.
Moment uses Aspen/Ash wood core on skis that really take a beating. Ash provides amazing binding retention, strength and dampening. Aspen adds durability and lighter weight to the core.
Requires brake width of 115mm
