THE VERDICT

Kastle's FX95 HP is a damp, incredibly stable ski that eats up terrain with powerful mid to long-radius turns. It excels at high speeds where it is easy to initiate and lock onto an edge. The ski is not for aspiring experts looking to improve. This is a hard charger that needs space to roam.

FULL REVIEW

Kastle’s FX95 HP is a high-powered machine. Built with tip rocker and low profile camber, this ski easily rolls into a turn, where two layers of titanal provide superior edge hold. Garnering top scores for its stability, the FX95 practically invites you to lay down powerful arcs anywhere you take it on the hill.

This is a true hard chargers ski for mastering big terrain. It loses performance at slower speeds, where it can start to feel sluggish, especially in shorter turns. Designed to drive, it rewards advanced skiers who like making damp, precise big arcs wherever they ski.
