Yes, that is the correct price, and no, it doesn’t come with a binding. But sometimes you get what you pay for. Testers felt the FX was friendly-er than the other Kastles in the test—it’s built without the two sheets of metal—but it’s still a ground-hugging missile that takes a strong crusher to appreciate it. The FX 95 does have a my-way-or-the-highway mentality, and it seems to think short turns are for the weak and slow, but it cuts through set-up crud like butter and beats all the boys to the bottom. “Great ski for the technical skier,” said Gibbons. “Rewards precision.”
