Kastle CPM82 Ski

Too fast for pictures.

These days, it seems like folks are more interested in getting their latest social media pic than actually skiing, but you're still in it for the joy of the turn and the thrill of gravity pulling you down the mountain, so step into the Kastle CPM82 Ski and blast by the photo-op crowd, leaving nothing but a blast of wind and an icy spray in your wake. Built for the seasoned frontside skier, the CPM82 has all the hallmarks of a solid frontside ski—traditional camber profile, stiff flex, and nimble turn radius—to devour everything from pristine corduroy to chopped crud to day-old leftover pow.

As you might have guessed from its name, the CPM82 sports an inherently nimble 82mm waist that will track from edge to edge with ease. This quick and sporty feel gets a boost from the ski's cap construction, which keeps it light, nimble, and friendly when the terrain turns steep and bumpy. Lightweight carbon gives the ski a uniquely snappy feel while reducing weight, and two layers of titanal increase the torsional rigidity of the ski, delivering a stiff and aggressive feel speed-craving skiers will appreciate. You might be thinking that circular doodad in the shovel of the ski looks pretty sweet, and while that might be true, it's actually there to help eliminate chatter when you're skiing fast in firm and unforgiving conditions.
