Technical info:
Moment, with its abrupt tips, stands out from the crowd. Deathwish has a lot of sidecut in the back ski and a longer radius from the waist and forward. What is special here are the pronounced pockets in the camber (red), just before the rocker at both ends. We noticed something similar on Faction´s winner in this year's park ski test. Here we see it again, but in a completely different category, and even more pronounced. It has a soft flex, just as much tail as tip and a short setback.

On snow:
"Deathwish gets no points for the name, neither does it score that many for it’s qualities on snow. It feels shorter and narrower than it is. The float is not that good, and a lot of camber makes it more difficult to skid with than most other skis in the test. The feedback ranges from ""quick and playful"" to ""boring and ugly"". Moment´s Deathwish is probably not the ski that will make everyone take to the mountains this winter. Fortunately."
