2013 Kästle FX104

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #85 in Freeride Skis


Pros: Super strong charger

Cons: Not for the meek




I skied this right after a BMX108, a very nimble ski, the FX104 is NOT nimble. Where some skis can ski shorter than their dimensions, the FX104 with a 26M TR skis like a much bigger ski than it is. Unlike the FX014's little brothers FX84 and 94 which are finesse skis, the 104 is a hulk of a ski. This ski is NOT for the meek.
