Kastle TX87 Touring Ski Review

Posted on October 14 2014

One of our favorite pairs of skis and this is usually the part where Doug and Randy ramble on. However, this ski was so popular and our customers and friend's went to way cooler places with them then we ever have. Here are some customer reviews and great guest shots!

"I took those skis on the Haute Route last April, they were the tool!  Two of us used that model, and we both loved them.  We were the only American team to do the Mountaineers route last year, I did see one German team doing the route in reverse with a member using the same ski.  Definitely would not go with anything wider, there's plenty of float in that ski, we even had a day with 2' of fresh and zero visibility, they rode fine.  No need for rocker or anything else.  Magically, that design has great torsional rigidity." -Phred

"I had great trip to Antarctica and returned home with no difficulties.  The skis and boots worked great and I could definitely notice the weight difference on the uphill.  The downhill performance was also excellent - we skied one day on 45-50* ice with complete confidence.   If you have any other specific questions let me know.  Thanks for all of your help to make the trip a success." - Paul

It is only so often an Olymipan like Simi Hamiliton comes in to buy skis so we had to brag a little. Simi is normally out shreding on skinny nordic sticks and training, but here he is ripping some technical lines on the TX87 in North Maroon.
