FX116 HP Ski 2020 - Kastle

Please contact us if ordering Kastle skis for delivery to the USA. The MSRP for the Kastle Kastle FX116 HP is $1099.00 USD

Kastle have updated their hard charging FX HP series for 2020, freeride resort skis built for strong experienced skiers wanting high level performance in all situations when skiing on and off piste. We were afraid that Kastle may have excessively softened the character of the 2020 FX range, which were known for both performance and also taking no prisoners, but in fact they have developed these skis in the right direction, reducing ski weight without losing ski-snow contact.

The widest model in the series, the FX116 benefits from the same technological improvements as the FX96 HP and FX106 HP.
Kastle FX skis have a loyal following amongst serious skiers who loved the performance and the stability offered by the titanal construction, and it's good to see that the new design (see below for all the techy details) has been so successful, being lighter yet still very precise. If you're looking for a modern high performance fat powder ski you're at the right place, no need to look further. 

Features: Kastle FX116 HP Ski 2020

Hollowtech 3.0
Kastle's patented, key technology is unique to ski manufacturing. By removing unneeded layers in the front of the ski the ski is lighter. This results in several advantages: the ski becomes up to 30 % damper, the ski feels more stable, edge-grip is more powerful, steering is more precise and the overall weight is reduced.
The new version 3.0 of our HOLLOWTECH technology has been revolutionized: It is now even lighter and features exclusively in the FX and PX ranges. HOLLOWTECH 3.0 is created in two layers. A new outer ring cuts out even more materials to save more weight. The size of the HOLLOWTECH is precisely matched to the shovel of each particular model - for performance that´s unbeatable.
Woodcore
Each Kästle ski is built with the finest wood core, manufactured with precision to one-tenth of a millimeter. This allows us to control the weight, responsiveness and dampening characteristics of the ski, resulting in a high-quality, durable product.
Sandwich-Sidewall Construction
Kastle adapt our Sandwich-Sidewall Construction from alpine racing and consider this technology a distinguishing feature of all of our models. This design gives every Kästle Ski optimal flex and torsional rigidity, creating sensitive and direct power transmission and ensuring total control, even at high speed. For the RX12 SL Kastle used the classic SANDWICH-SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION.
For the FX series Kastle used the POWERZONE-SANDWICH-SIDEWALL-CONSTRUCTION, which combines the benefits of the classic and the SEMI-CAP-SANDWICH-SIDEWALL
Elliptical Radius
Each model is designed to have its own carving characteristics, which is based on the ski’s intended application, by adjusting the radius along the waist of the ski. The shape of the Elliptical Radius determines how quickly and aggressively the ski enters and exits a turn.
Graphite Sinter Base
Kästle uses uncompromisingly high-quality UHM SINTERED GRAPHITE bases, like those used in ski racing, for all its adult skis. This creates a durable, long-lasting base with excellent glide performance and wax absorption. Our children and junior skis feature though, easy-care extruded bases.
Camber
Kastle built their skis with classic camber and distinguish between Standard Camber and Low Camber:
With LOW CAMBER, the ski center is slightly elevated and the contact points are moved toward the ski center. The effective edge is consequentially less, and the ski is more playful and forgiving
Shovel and Tail:
With the shovel and tail design, we can refine the aggressiveness of our skis.
The HOOK FREE SHOVEL is a longer shovel that is often combined with Early or Progressive Rise. With this design the contact point to the snow is moved toward the center of the ski, thus ensuring a more forgiving and playful performance.
The HOOK FREE TAIL is often combined with Dual Rise and a longer tail, with the contact point being moved toward the center of the ski. The result is a forgiving, playful performance when exiting a turn.
Rise
With Rise technology, the shovel of the ski is optimized and control its float depending on the ski’s application.
PROGRESSIVE RISE optimizes float and easy turning in freeride conditions.
DUAL RISE technology combined with an adapted camber profile creates a ski which guarantees the best float, even in the deepest of snow, without losing responsiveness.
HP - High Performance
Kästle HP are high-performance models that allow skiers to reach and exceed their limits. Kastle creates unique constructions with additional carbon for the most demanding skiers. Connoisseurs recognize this feature through the HP lettering on each ski.
