The MX70 is the skinniest ski in Kästle's All Mountain Piste series, with a 118 mm tip and 70 mm waist. These dimensions are pretty similar to a race ski, making this a more carving-focused tool. It's intended to be taken all over the mountain, though, thanks to the technology it shares amongst the All Mountain Piste series, which 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. For something similar to the MX 70 but wider and more powder-focused, check out the MX78, CPM82, MX83, MX88, MX98, LX72, and LX82. Kästle, based in Hohenems, Austria, was founded in 1924. Its U.S. headquarters are in Vail, Colorado.
