What Moment says about the Wildcat Tour

“There will always be those who love going uphill, we get it—hell we do it too, so we can respect that. So long as we don’t have to tiptoe on eggshells the whole way down. We are here to ski after all.

That’s why we built the Wildcat Tour. Because contrary to popular belief you should be able to have that sweet widebody cake and eat it too. Plus eating that cake atop a ridgeline you’ve earned under your own power makes it all that much sweeter.

So in the spirit of working smarter not harder—or rather working smarter so you can work harder for longer—we put the fatcat on a strict diet and trimmed some serious fat. That way you can go back for third helpings and do it all again tomorrow.

And of course it’s still a Moment, not some non-repairable $2000 carbon tube that’ll shatter when your questionable decision making puts you right smack-dab in the middle of the shark pool.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Wildcat Tour:

Tips: 6-6.5
Shovels: 7-8.5
In Front of Toe Piece: 9-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-8.5
Tails: 8-6

Except for its softer tips and tails, this is a very similar flex pattern to the standard Moment Wildcat.

Stay Tuned…

We received the Wildcat Tour this winter and have skied a few days on it. Keep an eye out for updates, and let us know of any questions you have about this ski.

  1. I’ve recently gone down the rabbit hole on skins, (and it started because on a podcast you guys had mentioned glueless) currently I’m using three different brands all glued. First Q: What is the go to skin for testing.
    Second who is leading the charge in clueless skins?
    I was not that impressed with GL in the past.

    • Good questions — have you checked out our Climbing Skins Guide? That provides a pretty solid overview of our thoughts on a whole bunch of skins we’ve tested. If you haven’t, you can find it here: https://blisterreview.com/gear-reviews/climbing-skins-a-guide-comparisons

      As for “go-to” skins for testing, that mostly depends on which skins we have in which widths and lengths, so we often aren’t picking whichever skin we want. That said, I know our reviewer Paul Forward’s favorite is the Pomoca Race Pro 2.0 (when he’s able to find it in a width that fits his skis). I’m also a big fan of that one, but I also really like the Pomoca Free Pro 2.0; it’s not quite as good as the Race Pro 2.0 when it comes to glide and packability, but it’s not very far off and it’s available in wider widths and longer lengths. If I got a choice, I’d probably use Free Pro 2.0 on the majority of my skis since I love Pomoca’s adhesive (sticks well, but easy to rip) and I prioritize packability and efficiency over durability and grip. If I did want a grippier, burlier option, I’d personally likely opt for Pomoca’s Climb 2.0. All that said, I’ve been pretty happy using skins from nearly every manufacturer out there (see that guide article); a lot comes down to personal preference.

      As for “glueless” skins, the only recent options we’ve tried have been Contour’s “Hybrid” skins, which do technically use different types of glue, but the glue that touches the base of the ski is not very tacky. I’ve found them to work well for the most part and they’re extremely easy to rip off skis, but they do seem more prone to letting snow creep in than stickier alternatives like Pomoca (which are still very easy to rip).

  2. do you also received a commander tour? would be interested in your thoughts, because we are a bit confused at the shop :-). And we can see that the DW Tour is killing the big and the small WC Tour, so it looks like Moment has to do a DW104 Tour :-)))). sorry for that strong comment, just bored during summer at the shop (hiking shoe business is starting sloooooow)… cheers from munich
