Product Info

Moment Night Train Skis 2013: The Moment Night Train Skis take rocker/camber theory beyond its all-mountain, one-ski-quiver origins, creating a pure powder ski that’s still capable in-bounds. It’s progressive Twin Rocker profile and early taper dimensions allow you to push the envelope further in steep, deep terrain than you ever thought possible, while sidecut lets you carve up hardpack.

Product Details

Shape

Twin Rocker is like nothing else you’ve ever experienced. Designed purely for deep-snow performance, Twin Rocker combines a flat camber profile underfoot with a rockered tip and tail. With no downward arc to catch an edge, a Twin Rocker ski can pivot, smear, and slide sideways at speed with complete confidence. It’s the way powder was meant to be skied.

Early taper for a catch-free, nimble feel

Construction

Flex rating of 7.5 out of 10 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)

Moment uses Aspen/Pine wood core on skis that need to be able to withstand a beating. Ash provides amazing binding retention, strength and dampening; Pine 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.

Dimensions

21m @ 168cm 133/116/128, 25m @ 178cm 140/123/135, 27.5m @ 186cm, 140/123/135 (all sizes)

Additional Features

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.

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

2.2mm Rockwell 48 Steel Edge for more strength and durability

Binding Compatibility

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

Comments about Moment Night Train Skis 2013:

Excellent ski. It will take a bit to adjust to if you have been skiing either narrower skis, or skis with camber. In my case, prior to these I have been skiing my same 2004 182 cm Line 1260s @ 76 mm under foot.

I am 5'10" @ 165 lbs and this review is on the 186 cm. These skis are incredibly light and almost effortless to spin. While I have not taken these into the park, I can say for sure I love hitting powder and natural features with these. Solid and sturdy, nice and wide under foot and the early rise makes off-piste skiing a dream.

The only negative things I can really say is that, because of the lack of camber, carving takes a bit more power. Late day hardpack is also a bust. While I have only skied these a total of 6 days last season, it was easier than I thought it would be to adjust from my previous skis. Factory mount is a bit far forward for most applications so I would definitely mount -5 so you can actually charge without feeling like you are going to go over the handlebars.

Despite the negatives, I would still give these weapons a 5/5. All terrain is manageable, but you can, and will, absolutely destroy if you are blessed with a fresh pow day. It is unfortunate that they discontinued the Night Train and merged it with the Ghost Chant creating the Ghost Train for the 2014 season. I will more than likely demo a pair, but I would definitely pick up a pair of the Night Train before they are gone for good.

    Comments about Moment Night Train Skis 2013:

    These skis are great IN THE RIGHT CONDITIONS. I ski Squaw Valley, Tahoe, CA, and lets face it, Tahoe is not known for their powder. Sure, sure, it comes every now and then, but for the most part, we get that wet and heavy Sierra Cement. If you can get first tracks, these handle it fine; however, in chopped up cement, you better have some strong legs to ski these well. In fresh snow or actual powder, though, these are great. Flotation is awesome, turning is a breeze, and they are just a great ski. I had them mounted at the recommended point, -2 I believe (not totally sure). For variable conditions, this might be a little far forward. However, when you actually get into some powder, it's a great mounting point.

    Unless you are always skiing powder, do not get these if you plan to only have one set of skis.

    5/5 for what these skis are INTENDED for: powder
