2020 Kastle Skis Preview

Year of the FX Kastle must have been inspired by the turn of a new decade. Because for a company that typically makes small, incremental updates, the lineup of 2020 Kastle skis features some big changes. The FX, "free cross," family is expanded and rebuilt. It swallows the old BMX series, serving up a formidable collection: the FX86, 96, 106, and 116. The wild kicker? None of the skis have metal in their build. Read our review of the new FX96 HP and FX106 HP We've also got some women's specific skis for 2020. Kastle brings back the Vogue name from an '80s collection and slaps it on a three-ski all-mountain family, including the FX96 W along with the new DX85 W and DX75 W.

2020 Kastle FX116 Description:

For 2019-2020, the old BMX115 bows out to the latest heavy-hitting premium ski from Kastle: the FX116. Built with the attention to detail and special sauce that Austria-based Kastle packs into all of its premium skis, the FX116 enters the lineup as possibly their most powder-craving ski to date. Fat Hollowtech 3.0 inserts dampen vibrations and help the skis float up on the fluffiest of powder. True to form, there is enough bulk in these skis to keep them on track and ripping through crud and mixed snow. But with fiberglass wrapped around a wood core, they are a high-energy, ultra-smooth option for powder seekers hellbent on ripping as many laps as they can. Kastle fanboys will notice a weight and bulk reduction over previous models, and it's by design. Kastle buffs out the smoothness of their ride in the FX116 and makes the ski accessible to a wider range of skiers than previous iterations were. From Austria with love.
