DescriptionThe Wildcat 108 is perfect for anyone seeking a bit less beef than the O.G. Wildcat is packing. We designed it to deliver the goods wherever winter storms arrive on a less consistent basis—or not at all. But after a season of testing, we’re confident this little kitty will end up going home with as many current Wildcat owners as new parents—probably more, because it’s just that good.
Putting a fat cat on a diet is not as simple as trimming a centimeter out of the middle. We left the profile identical, tweaked the sidecut and added damper core to ensure it delivers the same playful, confidence-inspiring ride as its older brother. We’re smitten with the results, and a 2019 Skiers’ Choice award from Powder proves we aren’t alone. This could be the birth of a new cult classic, so feel free to pat yourselves on the back. It’s your cult, after all.

Rocker at the tip and tail and camber underfoot allows for incredible float and maneuverability in the trees and chutes while maintaining a significant amount of edge hold for both the icy runouts and the groomers.

Fun but damp and you can drive it
I just picked up a new pair but I was fortunate enough to be able to put a couple hundred thousand feet of vertical on a demo pair at snowbird in the spring. didn't get them out on a powder day but just about every other condition. my other resort skis are 187 brahma, 187 bonafide, 189 Dynastar proto factory, 192 rustler 11 so skis that are more directional in nature with weights that are in the heavier end of spectrum. typically anything with the rocker profile of the cat 108 and mount point feels short, i'm 6'4, you can't pressure the tips, and you don't get edge hold on firm, and without metal and weight there really isn't a damp feel to the ski. the cat 108 is the exception on all counts. doesn't feel short at all, at 190 actually feels like a lot of ski that's pretty easy overall, you can pressure the tips and they respond, good edge hold in firmer conditions, damp (and really damp for it's weight) and fun but can be pushed really hard. i put so much time on he demo because i just didn't want to give it back and ski my other skis. i gave it back at one point, then borrowed it again when i spent the say wishing i was skiing the cat. at least with the 190, i don't think guys used to skiing more directional damp skis would be disappointed at all.
Exactly what I was hoping for
I've owned 2 pairs of Moments and skied my friends Blister Pros before, and always thought "I wish the made a skinnier version, I would use those every day." As soon as I saw the Wildcat 108 was available I had to pull the trigger. These sticks are everything you are hoping they would be: a stout platform to stand on yet nimble, easy to toss around I'm bumps, snappy edge to edge and damp and stable on run outs. I am 6'1" and 185 lbs and the 190 cm is the perfect ski for me! Actual weight was 2039g and 2066g per ski, as a data point for those who care.
Yet to be seen
I’m skiing the moment bibby and deathwish. The bibby is hands down the best ski I have ever owned. Tonight, I will have the wildcats mounted up with NTN freeride bindings and I’ll be hitting Telluride on them next week. I have high expectations and anticipate another great ski
