THE VERDICT

Kastle's XX110 is a hard-charging ski that rewards strong skiers who like to carve confident arcs in hard snow and mixed snow conditions. It is not especially playful or forgiving, and does not feature much float.

FULL REVIEW

Testers were impressed with the Kastle XX110’s stability, its love of high speeds, and its edgehold. In absolutely plows through crud, with an increased control and confidence the harder it is pushed.

Still, it feels like an old school Super G ski compared to many of the other skis we tested. It is not especially playful and features a negligible amount of float in powder. This is a ski best ridden by expert skiers who want to drive hard arcs in all conditions, and who want a fat ski with superior handling on hard snow.
