FULL REVIEW

Kastle’s FX 104 drives the mountain in the passing lane, blowing through just about anything you can find to crush. Super stable, with a propensity for high speeds and big arcs, it is wonderfully easy to initiate once you get it up to speed, where it rides an edgehold that provides incredible confidence and grip.

This is not the most versatile ski in this class, with little patience for short swing turns. And, is better suited for carving and treating the entire mountain like one big gs/super g course than it is for playfulness and float.
