Kästle’s lightweight LX Line features three All-Mountain models, updated for 2012/2013. The LX92 received high scores for both versatility and carving ability, and is “stable as a rock and very smooth,” according to Maybon. The weight-reducing construction includes a cosmetic cap and two titanal sheets sandwiching a lightweight wood core. Kästle’s Hollowtech Technology adds a colorful tip section milled out of the core designed to further reduce overall weight as well as the tip’s swing weight. “It’s quiet and consistent in all sizes of arcs,” said Ertl. “It carves on groomers with competence and cuts through powder and crud.”
