Product Info

Have you lost any friends to the beautiful, yet elusive, Jaguar Shark? I wouldn’t be surprised; the Moment Jaguar Shark Skis have found the elusive middle ground between big mountain hard charging, all-mountain performance, and powder float. Essentially a wider version of the Moment Belafonte Ski, it has the same all-mountain radius and killer Tip Rocker profile. Just be sure not to run out of dynamite.

Product Details

Shape

The Tip Rocker profile gives the ski strength and the 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.

Construction

UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) sidewalls are extremely light, durable, and resistant to separation.

4001 DuraSurf sintered bases 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.

VDS dampening system is placed over the edges and in several other key locations to mellow any harsh vibrations.

Triaxial fiberglass, woven in a 0°/45°/-45° fashion, provides maximum strength and resistance against twisting.

Flex

Moment uses Aspen/Ash wood core on skis that really take a beating. Aspen adds durability and lighter weight to the core; Ash provides amazing binding retention, strength and dampening.

Dimensions

25m @174cm, 28m @182cm, 32m @192cm 143/116/129 (all sizes)

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

I was fortunate to spend the majority of the 2010/2011 ski season on the 182cm Jaguar Shark. My intended use for these was for the backcountry and with my prior bc setup being the 190 Bibby, I wanted something shorter with a flatter tail: enter the Jag Shark.

For their maiden voyage, I took the Jags down a 45-degree couloir with snow ranging from head-high blower to cream cheese recycled pow to a super rippable apron at the bottom. The learning curve on these was incredibly short and was able to fully understand the ski immediately. Compared to the Bibby, the Jags like to turn more which shouldn't be a surprise with the lower turn radius.

Once I got these in deep snow, I easily fell in love. Yes, the Bibby Pro slays it in powder, but the Jags are slightly softer and plane far quicker at slower speeds. Once conditions get tracked out, the Jags still hold their own and for someone at 170lbs., the 182cm length was a solid fit. However, if I needed a inbounds-only ski, I would likely opt for the 192cm length.

Aside from a season spent almost entirely in deep snow, I had more than a handful days on firmer, steep snow and the Jags held an edge with the best of them. Yes, 116mm in the waist is likely too wide for most mountaineering types, but I had no complaints especially with the ability to slarve your way down sideways.

At 9.0 lbs., these are likely far lighter than every other comparable ski on the market within the price range, something to consider when making a choice for a backcountry ski where tip rocker, camber underfoot, and a flat tail for anchoring is ideal.

As far as durability goes, I put in a good 40 days on the Jaguar Shark and they show no sign of use or abuse. The topsheets are in great condition, edges like new, and the bases lacking any core shots.

Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

I purchased these skis in late October with hopes of La Nina returning to Colorado. What made me choose these skis over others on Evo was first only early rise. My mind was made up between these skis and the atomic Atlas. The deciding factor for me was that my friend had a pair of 180 moment Rubies that never failed to put a smile on his face and these skis seems like a natural evolution from that. I ski the 182s and im 165lb and 5'8". My ski experience is fairly recent but coming from the land of actual steeps (aka Alberta Canada and it's compatriot British Columbia) my skiing ability is what I would consider expert allowing me to ski pretty much anything on the mountain here in Colorado. Now for the skis. There is something comforting about finding a roaring jaguar looking you in the eyes as you charge down the mountain that inspires confidence. or maybe its the images of a shark and a jaguar snuggling with a cute little puppy that evokes a sense of loyalty and trust that is desired when you clip into a pair of boards. In any case the imagery on the top sheet is akin to the experience you will receive when riding these skis. I have had these skis in almost every condition (minus deep blower, but I pray for that not to be the case very soon) and there has yet to be a time when this ski does not excel or at least perform admirably considering its voluptuous figure. The early season provided its fair share of challenges with east coast hardpack, white strips of death, and icy moguls begging to rip ACLS. the jaguar Shark despite its 115mm waist performed better then my 99mm movement goliath sluffs. They easily allowed for skided turns with such a low swing wieght on the really hard stuff. When the snow was soft enough to dig an edge in you can just let the jag sharks run due to their stiffness and noming ability of snowy obstacles ( and small children). These skis rip when you lay them over making even early season turns on fresh groomers a blast with absolutely no tip chatter of waivering. What makes these skis the best Ive ever skied in my opinion is the fact that once your on soft snow you don't even know you have skis attached to your feet they intuitively do everything you want them to do. As for the playful aspect, I'm not sure if it's my late teen prowess to launch myself off of every feature I find available or the skis themselves but the jaguar sharks have never failed to provide me with endless enjoyment of take off and always are there when gravity takes control. Despite my what seems to be an endless rant I hope this helps make your decision. Embrace the hunter in you get yourself a pair of Jaguar Sharks.

Good All-Mountain Pow Ski

By

Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

This is a great all-mountain ski with some tip rocker for float. This is a strong competitor to the Obsethed for someone who wants a bit of a stiffer ski.

Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

This a new wide ski from Moment with more extreme rocker, but it is not just a powder ski. It had great dimensions to be skied on mountain most days. It is a little softer than most Moments, making it more playful, but I felt it lacked in pop.

JagShark

Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

I got a chance to test these beasts out in all types of snow (groom, icy moguls, cruddy pow) and these things kill it. They handle exceptionally well on hardpack and they charge and blast through variable snow. These things are BOSS, and like to go fast. If you like the powdered snow, dropping sizable cliffs and stomping the *bleep* out of everything, these puppies are for you.

    Comments about Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2012:

    I got a chance to ski these at Aspen after a big dump on a demo day. These skis were my only perfect 20. They carve surprisingly well for being such a beast. They improve on the Bibbys by being a little damper when you need them, so you don't get bumped around quite as much. They float amazingly well and charge through crud. I am in love with the moment hand pressed aspen woodcore and it couldn't fit any better on these skis. I cannot wait for mine to come in.
