"Which way to the Autobahn?" joked Stoeger about the MX88. "These skis are not for the weak." Testers gave the 88 millimeter-waisted metal-reinforced ski highest scores for stability, seconded by carving ability. Attridge praised its "ballistic stability. It's not very playful but it means business." The MX88 (the MX stands for Mountain Cross) combines full camber, a fast grip shovel and tail, and a core construction of sandwich sidewalls, hardwood and Titanal. As with all Kästle skis, the MX88 has the identifiable Hollowtech technology, a colorful milled tip section designed to reduce weight and minimize vibration. "This is a heavy ski, made to stay planted on the snow and make big turns at any speed," Witman said.
