Moment Jaguar Shark Skis 2013: A fat ski for the traditionalist, the Moment Jaguar Shark Skis feature Front Rocker to accelerate plaining and reduce tip deflection, and a partially flat tail to maintain a classic, powerful turn exit. A quintessential blower ripper with a core of ash and aspen, the Jaguar Shark is Moment s go-to when there’s some lighter-than-air fluff.
Front Rocker: for the directional charger, nothing beats Front Rocker. Traditional camber from the binding to the tail provides edging power and high-speed stability, while the rockered tip aids turn initiation, blasts through crud, and planes quickly in powder.
Early taper for a catch-free, nimble feel
Flex rating of 9 out of 10 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Moment uses Aspen/Ash wood core on skis that need to be able to withstand a beating. Ash provides amazing binding retention, strength and dampening; Aspen adds durability and reduces weight to the core.
Fiberglass Matrix fine-tunes the flex profile of the ski.
Carbon Fiber stringers provide more pop and snap and are extremely strong and lightweight.
UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) Sidewalls are extremely light, durable, and resistant to separation.
1.2mm Durasurf 4001 Sintered base can take a beating while staying fast. They are US-made, harder and have better wax absorption than extruded bases. Moment uses sublimated graphics to eliminate the cracking and peeling common on die-cut bases.
2.2mm Rockwell 48 Steel Edge for more strength and durability
VDS Dampening System is placed over the edges and in several other key locations to mellow any harsh vibrations.
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 2013:
These are an absolute blast in everything from hardpack to crud to bottomless cold smoke. I found that in order to keep in control you have to keep your weight insanely far forward, even in the really deep stuff the rocker in the tip keeps everything very floaty. They are best described as wideboy rockered GS skis.
These have a stiff, powerful tail meaning you can rail them on piste and carve surprisingly well for a 116mm waist-er. However if you land too far backseat they'll send you to the cleaners.
Construction-wise they are well made, the top sheets chip quite easily but the bases are bomber.
I mounted them 5cm back from true centre with dukes so they weigh a tonne but I've still done some medium tours without too much hassle. A set of Dynafits would be sick on these.
