Kastle FX96 HP Ski

$1,099.00

Ships October 1st!

Maximum quantity available reached.

It's hard to raise the bar on a distinguished and highly regarded ski like the Kastle FX95 HP, and so it seems that quality, in this case, is improved upon through the use of more modern materials while refining the subtleties of construction methods and shape. The result is the FX96 HP, which retains the downhill performance that we've come to love and expect in this classic, while lightening the load and improving on maneuverability and control. This is achieved to a certain extent by swapping out the double titanal laminates found in the previous HP model for a carbon/fiberglass wound core, thereby lightening the ski without compromising torsional rigidity and stability.

The nature of the FX96 HP begins with the TRI-TECH construction, which is focused on using higher density wood at the core, with lighter woods at the sides, and then varying the thicknesses in order to reduce weight while maxing out on power transmission and stability.

The improved HOLLOWTECH 3.0 tip continues to impress, and Kastle has managed to remove even more material from the front of the ski, thereby lightening the shovel, which reduces swing weight and increases the damp factor.

The Powerzone-Sandwich-Sidewall construction is passed on from alpine racing, and the technology provides ideal flex and torsional rigidity with power transfer that is more sensitive and direct. This leads to amazing control when you're really opening it up and letting it fly.

Profiled with low camber and a hook free tip/tail puts the contact points towards the center of the ski, which decreases the effective edge length and offers more in the way of playfulness and a more forgiving feel.  

You won't find compromised base material on a Kastle ski, as the base is constructed with high-quality UHM sintered graphite, which results in a more long-lasting and durable base that absorbs wax well and offers unparalleled glide performance.

If you're a demanding, confident skier who seeks to reach and exceed your limits anywhere on the mountain, the qualities offered in the FX96 HP ski can certainly help get you there. While the adage "If it ain't broken, don't fix it" could arguably be employed in this context, we think not and genuinely find the FX96 HP to be better than ever.
