The new big dog of Kästle’s MX line, the MX99 brings a full layer of carbon atop two layers of Titanal, plus a silver fir and beech wood core. For the first time in the MX series, the MX99 also has rocker in the shovel. Experts will find it capable in variable terrain, but its no-nonsense construction and demeanor makes it more frontside-specific than most of the other skis in this category. Even in the shorter length, this ski really wants to go fast at all times, and testers liked it.

Strength: Hard-Snow Integrity

Weakness: Forgiveness
