The three skis in Kästle's LX or "Light Cross" line have Kästle's carve-oriented construction but in a lightweight package. The 82 mm-waisted LX82 (flanked by the 72 and 92) is "a great overall Frontside machine," said Beidleman. The fully cambered ski has a sandwich construction with a lightweight 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. Big guys may find it soft, but Volckhausen said the LX82 is "ideal for most days. It held like a race ski, makes comfortable turns at any radius, and is easy to control in the bumps."
