The 82 millimeter-waisted LX82 (LX means “Light Cross”) is a unisex Frontside ski. Our female testers gave it high score for stability, and Gleich praised its "lively, amazing on-piste performance." Testers agreed that stronger skiers would appreciate its beefy and solid construction. The fully-cambered ski has a sandwich construction with a cosmetic cap, two Titanal sheets and a silver fir wood core. Kästle’s Hollowtech Technology—a colorful tip section milled out of the core—reduces weight plus the tip and tail have a hook-free geometry. "Look for the GS course with these skis," Minneci said. "Avoid mixed conditions and moguls because this is a wide radius groomer ski with the need for speed."
