DescriptionThe Commander 108 is here to fill—overfill, maybe—the void left behind by the Tahoe 106. We started with a stable foundation: a full aspen / ash core, minimal tail rocker, and a directional shape. Then we added agility in the form of dual-radius sidecut and tip rocker. Finally, because we’re slightly unhinged, we slipped two sheets of Titanal into the layup. The result is a bipolar mashup of modern all-mountain ski manageability and full-blown charger confidence—a ski that can slash and slip through tight situations or blow SLOW signs off their posts, depending on your mood. So, whether you’re straightlining Elevator Shaft, rallying chop in The Slot, or just ripping groomers at pass-pulling speeds, the Commander can handle anything.
|Length||Tip||Waist||Tail||Radius||Effective Edge||Weight (pair)||Mount|
|168cm||138mm||108mm||124mm||18.0m||1245mm||8.16lbs / 3.69kg||-8cm|
|178cm||138mm||108mm||124mm||19.5m||1345mm||8.52lbs / 3.86kg||-8cm|
|188cm||138mm||108mm||124mm||21.0m||1445mm||8.90lbs / 4.03kg||-8cm|
|194cm||138mm||108mm||124mm||22.5m||1500mm||10.20lbs / 4.63kg||-8cm|
Rocker at the tip, camber underfoot, and a slight bit of tail rise gives the ski a directional feel while maintaining the ability to slash and slide.
ASPEN/ASH WOOD COREFull 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 SIDEWALLThe strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
METAL LAYUPTwo sheets of Titanal added to our traditional layup provides a damp and quiet ride that doesn't have a speed limit.
4001 DURASURF BASEHands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGEThere 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.
Perfect daily driver for myself!
The commander 108s are perfect. they are stable, maneuverable, and a really good all round modern charger. If you ski with a directional style and are trying to get into some techy steeps, big drops, and straightline out of chutes in lots of different conditions this ski will get er done. I use the 108 from bulletproof moguls at squaw to light storm days, so basically 90% of the time im on the mountain. If your looking for a strong and stiff no nonsence ski but at the same time something light and manageable enough to ski everyday, look no further.
Best ski I’ve ever skied, everything I’ve hoped for!
I have had pb&js, tahoes, deatwish and exit world. The Commander keeps all the hard work you have been doing year after year true as can be. Thank you so much, the metal sheet really stomps out the high speed chatter and holds deep I was suprised on the weight as well. mounted jester pros and was happy to feel the screw tourqe hammer that metal with grip. They have already ripped startton, sugarloaf, and sunday river this week heading to sugarbush after this beer. Thank you fellas. keep it up
BEST SKI EVER!
Great early conditions to put these bad boys to the test. Awesome in light powder -Floats Like a butterfly -Super easy to turn. Skied some heavier stuff off High T on Saturday Still Carved like a Porsche. Most surprising aspect of the Commander 108 is how well it grips on firm groomers.Really responsive edge to edge. This is TRULY the best ALL Mountain ski I have ever skied.Thanks Moment!!
Found the right 108 (Part 1 of 2)
I took the 108 Commander 188cm to Chile last week with my Blizzard 185cm Cochise. I like the Cochise but I’ve been looking for a 108 all mountain ski that is a go-to in difficult and variable conditions. I like the dampness of the Cochise, and while it’s easy to break the tail free in tighter places when needed, I’d like similar dampness while being able to hold an edge in turns less than 27m. Towards that ideal I tried the J Skis 186cm Metal, ultimately it felt short and did not exhibit good edge hold in firm, icy conditions and the 2018 Black Crows Atris 189cm, which felt brittle and wasn’t near damp enough. First day of 5 on the trip I took the Cochise and Commander out, started on the Cochise until I had my legs back under me, after switching to the Commander, I didn’t take the Cochise back out again, nor did I take out my Blizzard Brahma – even though conditions were pretty firm everywhere and best on groomers, perfect conditions for the Brahma -- I just enjoyed the Commander the whole 5 days. I never found the 185cm Cochise a difficult ski but the Commander is a much easier, more intuitive ski. It wants to be ridden from a more centered position, requires much less input to drive the tips and is also really easy to drift and slarve. (continued in part 2...)
