Description

Over the last few seasons, Moment team athlete Carston Oliver has been developing his own personal pro model. He’s obsessed. Sometime in the fall, he’ll make the eight-hour drive from Utah to our Sparks, Nevada factory, crash on the couch for a few days while we help him tweak the design and press out prototypes, and then he’ll head home, with a short stack of the latest version for testing. This year, with Carston’s blessing, we decided to offer a limited release of what he’s dubbed the Chipotle Banana. Don’t be fooled by its cartoon topsheet graphic and fat, friendly shape—this is not your typical powder ski.



The Chipotle recipe begins in a unique layup: extra sheets of fiberglass and more carbon than we currently build into any other ski, wrapped over a substantial aspen/ash core. Its Radius Rocker profile matches the long 33-meter sidecut radius, giving it both maneuverability for sketchy entries and the straight-line stability needed for choppy exits. Broad dimensions keep it afloat in dry, deep Wasatch powder, while Radius Rocker keeps it loose and free in coastal conditions. The concept sounds mellow, but the ski itself is a stiff, damp, high-octane prescription for Carston’s unique brand of mental illness. If you, too, are going six kinds of ape trying to choose between a softer rockered ski and a traditional big-mountain model, the Chipotle Banana could hold the cure—but the side effects should not be taken lightly. Consider this your warning label.

Full Rocker

Turns out full rocker is good - super good - for way more than big dumps and buttering into cliff drops. The Meridian series gives you the benefits of full rocker for inbounds, backcountry, and powder days.

Construction

ASPEN/ASH WOOD CORE
Full length, knot free, in house laminated wood core gives this ski its unique blend of liveliness and dampening. All wood sourced in the USA.
UHMW SIDEWALL
The strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
CARBON FIBER HYBRID COMPOSITE STRUCTURE
A custom blend of triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber helps give this ski its torsional rigidity along with added longitudinal pop.
4001 DURASURF BASE
Hands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGE
There are only handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source in Europe to offer the best edge possible. We do additional heat treating and bonding prep in house to make sure your edge stays sharper, lasts longer and can handle a beating.
