The three skis (with 72, 82 and 92 mm waists) in Kästle's LX or "Light Cross" line have a racy, carve-oriented construction for aggressive skiers. "Hello GS turns," said Sutton. "This ski is fun and fast but take your Sport Legs." The 72 mm-waisted ski has full camber with a sandwich construction, a lightweight cosmetic cap, two titanal sheets and a silver fir wood core. The tip and tail have a hook-free geometry and Kästle's Hollowtech Technology—a colorful tip section milled out of the core—reduces weight. "Its forte is a pure carved turn," said Alder.
