After some high-consequence line choices last season, Josh Bibby proposed a stiffer, straighter, and more aggressive version of his pro model. We responded with the Bibby Special - a standard Bibby beefed up with ash stringers, new dimensions, and a severely altered rocker profile. Hidden within the rest of the lineup, it stayed relatively unknown until we were sure it was the right move. Now it’s time to reveal the secret and give it a fitting name. Meet the Governor. With its minimal Mustache Rocker, stiff ash-and-aspen core, and directional shape, it acknowledges its forefather while taking the design to another level. Vote Moment in 2013.

The core is the heart of every ski. We source solid aspen, pine, and ash planks from the best lumber mills in the USA which harvest their forests sustainably, mills that understand the high standard of top-grade clear wood that needs to go into our ski cores. Each Moment core consists of full-length vertical laminates for consistent flex, CNC machined in-house to the strictest possible tolerances. ASPEN/ASH CORE : We use this combination on the skis that really take a beating. Ash provides amazing binding retention, strength and dampening. Aspen adds life and lighter weight to the core.
For the directional charger. This camber profile gives a 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.
We use several different types of topsheet materials, enhanced with sublimated graphics—a non-toxic and eco-friendly alternative to silk screening. Each topsheet choice is made to ensure optimal durability and impact resistance while maintaining crisp and bright graphics.
Extruded UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is the sidewall material we use for every pair of skis. It is extremely light, durable, and resistant to separation.
Our extra-thick, US-made DuraSurf sintered 4001 bases take a beating while still staying fast. They are harder and have better wax absorption properties than extruded bases. We use sublimated graphics to eliminate the cracking and peeling common to die-cut bases.
We developed the epoxy resin system used in every pair of our skis with the manufacturer to provide the best properties possible. Custom-formulated for flexibility, durability, and unmatched bonding strength, our resin is what keeps everything together. Made in the USA.
We source our edges from the industry’s most-recognized manufacturer. They arrive from Austria hardened to 48 Rockwell, and we perform additional heat-treating in-house to adjust the hardness and ductility of the steel, ensuring you get the most life out of your skis.
