For the second year in a row, the Moonlight Eagle Carbon and Carbon Race have won the top prize award from Ski Rando Magazine. The French-based ski touring and mountaineering magazine has awarded our most popular freeride touring skis its highest honor. This is in addition to the ISPO award the Eagle Carbon Race has won in 2018.

The magazine and its testers were impressed with its skiability considering its weight saying, “we were impressed by the downhill performance for such a lightweight ski. The Eagle holds the way at high speed with stability worthy of a heavier ski.” (translated)

Regarding the shape and construction of the ski, they stated, “it is also easy to control even in rotten snow thanks to a very progressive rocker. The behavior is also playful with good maneuverability.”(translated) Finally they wrote, “it’s hard to believe that Moonlight has managed to make such an ultra lightweight and efficient ski.”(translated) The size tested was a 177cm (130-95-120mm ) which weighs 1333g for the Eagle Carbon, and 1098g for the Eagle Carbon Race.

The Eagle Carbon and Eagle Carbon Race both feature wood-hybrid cores between carbon fiber sheets. This construction allows for a very lightweight ski that maintains the lively and controlled flex of a traditional wood ski, while being torsionally and vertically strong. Their shape has our LL Rocker system (Long & Low camber and rocker), a mid-width waist, and a progressive sidecut that allows for floatation in fresh snow, control in uneven snow, and grip on hardpack snow conditions. On the exterior, the sintered graphite race base is of the highest speed and quality on the market, while the snow-phobic top sheet reduces ice and snow build up for minimal weight ascent and descent.
