The MX98 is a powder professional, designed to meet the strict demands of our athletes in the backcountry. While it thrives in the deep snow, the MX98 offers enough torsional rigidity to handle mach speeds and quick turns on the groomers.

“ The MX88 is arguably one of THE best skis on the market. There are few skis that I have skied over the years, and I have skied into the high hundreds, that I have immediately said "Wow, these skis are truly special". The MX88 at 88mm underfoot, can feel as nimble as any 80mm ski and depending on conditions as wide as most 90+ wide skis. The whole MX line skis very well and as solid and nimble...” --Philpug
“Top sheet damages easily; there is an aluminum 45 degree "edge protector" built into the top sheet but when cut by the ski edges, it only makes the damage worse. These are my go-to skis, love them and have purchased four pairs. The 2010 model has been retired and replaced by 2012 and 2014 models. Reading other external advertisement reviews make this ski sound like a full-on GS race ski and to...” --FKlammer

My intent was to add a ski to a Gotama (2010, 186cm), and vist X-free,...” --steve06877
“Logged 10 Lake Tahoe-days on Kastle FX94 Chris Davenports in cold powder, packed/groomed powder and slush. Powder skiing is mindless and intuitive. (Never been able to say that before!). Skiing packed powder benefits with a little additional technique. I love the lightweight, responsiveness and controlability. You control the radius of every turn, regardless of pack or powder snow. These...” --
“ The LX series is a new line for Kastle for 2011, it consists of two models the LX72 and LX82. I had a chance to demo the 82 in "good eastern conditions" which was fresh groomed over firm hardpack but with minimal ice patches. I along with the LX82, I skied the FX84 in a 176, MX78 KTi in a 168 and RX70 KTi also in a 168. The LX is a bit of a departure for Kastle, it is a lower, "more...” --Philpug
