Kastle LX 92 174cm 2012-13 - Page 2

post #31 of 44

q: Totally not the place to discuss. But what makes the lx92 a perfect corn ski?  This is one snow type I've never understood well. As you know I love my lx92. I am headed up to sugar bowl and northstar this weekend. And was just sitting here trying to figure out what ski I would use.

I think it's because, for me, I like this ski best when it has something substantial but not too deep to push against. Corn, soft open groomers, soft open bumps, shallow crud.

I kinda took your word for it and took it to Sugar Bowl today. Perfect. Thin crust in the am and late afternoon. Corn to slush in between. And a damn fine day. Thanks!

Is there a stigma on cap skis of being lesser performance than sidewalled skis? I'd love to demo the LX. Sounds like a great ski.

It's a really nice ski. I had a discussion with the powers to be at Kastle on the "cosmetic cap" and the perception of not being a less of a performance ski.

Will entertain good faith offers via PM.

We have a half dozen regulars in this thread, including segbrown, philpug, scotsskier, and others, commenting on the quality of this model. Honestly I think they should rename it the "Kastle Kryptonite."

As an engineer ill tell you that its the best way to make a ski torsionally strong without making it too stiff laterally.

How, from the engineering perspective? Just asking for my knowledge

Has this ski sold yet?? - are the Bears out of the Woods yet?
I wouldn't have minded it in Targhee but it's short for me.
People, spring is coming! Talk about a great slush ski, here you go.

Thanks for the bump. Yes, still available, still open to offers. Need to get off my rear and list on eBay.

Amazing to see this has not sold. I only ski mine in powder, bumps, trees and groomers at less than 50 mph in Big Sky. I have a three ski quiver and literally ski the LX 92 90% of the time.

I suspect he's exerting a forcefield because he wants to keep them. Would be a great spring ski.

Good lord, really?? All season and then summer.
Surely this is a sign of much powder to come.
