The MX98 is the widest and heaviest ski in Kästle's All Mountain Piste series, with a 132 mm tip and 98 mm waist. This is the most powder-focused ski in the series as well. While it's intended to take on groomers, it's even more so intended for everything outside of the groomers. For something similar but skinnier and more hardpack-focused, check out the CPM82, MX70, MX78, MX83, MX88, LX72, and 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.
