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.
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.
CARBON FIBER HYBRID COMPOSITE STRUCTUREA custom blend of triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber helps give this ski its torsional rigidity along with added longitudinal pop.
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.
I don't understand this ski. It's full rocker, stiffer than a week old baguette, and it's a full-on party. If you ski out West, this is the money for a daily driver. I've skied this model several times and love it so much that I've added the 117 and the Tour editions from last season to my quiver. On hardpack, icy snow, it can be a little sketchy, but that's not what it's intended for. Put it on steep groomers with a little soft snow, and you'll be hauling *** down to the bottom. Just make sure to keep it on edge! For that reason, it can be a little demanding, so it's not for the faint of heart. It CHARGES. The farther over you can lay it on edge, the more your turn shape will change, and I will say as someone who still enjoys carving, it carves beautifully. Off trail, it's so damn easily to throw it sideways, plow through chop, and - most importantly - send it off a cliff into space and never return. It has a pretty stiff tail (so don't get back seat), so you can really trust your landings and ride it out even when the snow isn't what you expected below. If you want to be faster than your friends, join the full rocker revolution and buy this ski already, ******.
Too early to tell, but they look sick. Mounted and ready to rock!
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!
