Testers gave high scores for what Stoeger called the FX104’s “surgical stability” and “confidence-enhancing turning ability.” Pro athlete Chris Davenport had a hand in developing Kästle’s All-Mountain freeride line, aiming for a ski that could tour as well as handle hard alpine turns. The FX104 has a rockered tip with a construction that includes an ash and silver fir wood core along with Titanal. Kästle’s Hollowtech technology includes an oval-shaped cutout filled with fiberglass designed to reduce weight and minimize vibrations and the FX104 has 10-percent larger and lighter Hollowtech for 2013/2014. “Not every skier can bend this ski,” Dittmar noted. “It’s an All-Mountain ski on steroids.”
