Wide Kastle with a Red Topsheet - Prototype?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

In Whistler a couple of weeks back I saw a single pair of wide (very wide ... like maybe 128mm wide) Kastle skis with a solid red topsheet and creamy white Hollowtech inserts.  One ski had a stylized version of the word "One", in white, covering much of the front of the topsheet, and the other ski had something like "Exclusive" written on it (in very much smaller writing).  Saw them three times, and didn't have my camera with me, which was frustrating.  I didn't get a look at them sideways on, so I can only guess at a rocker profile.

 

Anyone have a clue what these were?  My guess is they're a prototype version of next year's BMX128.

 

Also, does this make me the winter sports equivalent of a trainspotter?

I would wonder if it is an "exclusive" version of an existing ski. Sometimes they will do that for certain shops such as Strolz. Seems like if it was a test ski they'd keep it as low-key as possible.

That makes sense.  A pair of huge, fire engine red Kastles do tend to stand out from the crowd.  I recall a thread a couple years ago where Kastle had made a few pairs of special skis (SG skis from memory) for a particular European race, although they used the standard white topsheets.
