The Moment Exit World, previously a lighter, slightly tweaked version of the Moment Bibby Pro, sees a significant re-design for the 2015-2016 season.
The ski’s camber / rocker profile is now based on Moment’s 123mm-underfoot Ghost Train; it’s flat underfoot, with tip and tail rocker and “micro-camber” sections in front of and behind the binding area.
And at ~1,800 grams / ski, the Exit World is quite light, especially for its size. I put a few runs on the Exit World after SIA and, sure enough, its swing weight felt very light and the ski’s flat-underfoot profile made it very easy to pivot and steer. Even on firm, slick groomers at Copper, the Exit World didn’t feel terribly skittish or washy. In fact, it felt surprisingly grippy and predictable—easy to control on slick, firm snow, and not hooking or grabbing too badly when I ran through heavy, consolidated piles.
While I personally wasn’t a huge fan of Moment’s “Triple Camber Twin Rocker” profile on the Deathwish (for everyday, all-mountain use), I’m pretty intrigued by the slightly tweaked version of that profile on this new, decidedly more touring-oriented Exit World.
I don’t imagine we’ll end up talking about the Exit World as a damp, super-stable ski in variable snow, but it’s hardpack performance seems quite promising given how light and surfy we expect it to be in fresh pow.
