The LX72 is the lightest ski in Kästle's All Mountain Piste series. It's intended to be a bit softer and more forgiving than other skis in the series, and is designed to take on all sorts of terrain all over the mountain. Its main intention, however, is hardpack with its skinny 117 mm tip and 72 mm waist. For something similar but wider, check out the LX72's big brother, the LX82. The All Mountain Piste series focuses on skis intended to tear up all terrain all over the mountain. Woodcore and titanal top and bottom layers are designed to give the ski stability. Hollowtech technology hollows out the ski's tip, lightening the load and designed to further decrease chatter and other vibrations in the ski. Standard camber gives the ski a race-like radius designed for smooth turns no matter what terrain you're skiing on. If you spend a lot of time on hardpack but venture into rougher terrain pretty often as well, this is one of Kästle's best series for you. Kästle, based in Hohenems, Austria, was founded in 1924. Its U.S. headquarters are in Vail, Colorado.
