FX96 HP Ski
The FX96 likes to slice and dice, but it's no one-dimensional frontside chef. At 96mm underfoot, it's wide enough to comfortably handle boot-top powder and has Kastle's Dual Rise rocker to make sure your tips don't dive and your tails don't finish turns too aggressively and send you over the bars. From there the hyper-maneuverable shape helps you quickly pivot for control in tight trees or uneven snow, while the the solid but lightweight feel opens up a world of opportunities in the backcountry without leaving you feeling uncomfortable when you reach high speeds. In short, toss these on your feet for control and confidence all over the mountain between storms.
- All-mountain charger lets you rip up the whole mountain with confidence
- 96mm waist quickly transitions between turns yet handles variable snow
- Tip and tail rocker supplies enhanced planing performance in powder
- Camber underfoot locks in your edges while railing high-speed turns
- Poplar and paulownia wood core dampens the ski in mixed conditions
- Carbon laminate offers increased stiffness for arcing long turns
- Medium turn radius caters to hard chargers yet remains maneuverable
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
