DescriptionThe Meridian is a riddle. It’s absurdly forgiving, yet fully capable of charging hard. It’s fully rockered, but has the longest effective edge of any Moment ski. It carves like the prime rib station on a Sunday brunch buffet, pivots quicker than a press secretary, and sends like a late night text to your ex—all too easily. It has weird tips. Frankly, it doesn’t make sense. But when you ski it, it somehow makes perfect sense. And that’s what counts.

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.

These things are filthy. Seriously, get them on fresh snow and you'll be giddy like a kid on Christmas, ski through chop/hardpack and you'll be smiling from ear to ear as you slice through anything because of their stiffness. Spring skiing through mashed potatoes? These are the best gravy you can buy. Flying through the air? You'll be surprised at how light they feel yet how stable they are on landing. If you like ripping open terrain these are for you. Really the only places they don't excel at in my opinion are super tight trees and technical moguls....but even at those, they aren't bad. I'm a 6ft, 165lb, expert skier. I had my 181's mounted at the factory recommended setting. *Note: it took me a day and a half of skiing on them before I had the "aha" moment. The first day they felt a little odd compared to my traditional all mountain skis but once it clicked I understood the "Full Rocker Full Throttle" moto. Also, as someone previously stated the graphics are even cooler in person.
Absolutely, Immensely, Wickedly, Epic
Unboxed these and nearly cried. They look even better in person than they do online (which is already amazing). I mounted at factory recommendation and ripped them around on some groomers, jumps, and a little bit of fresh. I have never had a more enjoyable ride, and I didn't even ride them in there 'home-land' of powder. HIGHLY recommend for anyone thinking of an all-mountain ripper, I literally didn't stop smiling when I was on these skis.
A stable charger that's faster than your friends ski
The Meridian is a stable charger that's faster than your friends ski. Its stability through crud and variable terrain ensures that you don't get tossed around. In the air, it's light weight makes for a super light swing weight giving you confidence on all types of features. Whenever things get hairy, the Meridian keeps you upright. Full rocker is not limited to just off piste- These things rip in the park too!
make skiing rad again
And use these. These are rad. Stiff, so you can bust through the worst crud, but the flat-ish rocker profile makes it easy to slash and whip the tails out making them lively and playful. Throw it on edge to engage the sidecut and you'll be carving up groomers. Total smile-inducing ski for steeps, cliffs and any relatively soft snow. They shred pretty much everything except super crusty/icey stuff, which any non-race ski would also struggle with. If you ever want to walk to the mountain and say "today is gonna be a good day," then you better have these skis with you. No question it's my daily driver.
This ski is amazing. Full rocker is the ONLY way to go. Used to be that u needed camber for stability in hard conditions but those days are clearly over. You can rocket in any conditions. Surf them, pivot them on a dime, or rail them on their edges. Camber would only get in the way of this bad boy. My only complaint is that I wish Moment would come out with more skis with the same profile in other widths so I could have a full quiver of skis just like this one.
