Description

To ski it is to love it.

How can you explain your Kastle FX104 Ski to someone? That is, without welling up and getting misty-eyed over the strong, powerful, and versatile ski of your dreams? Don't worry, it happens to everyone who's ever skied it. It has a rockered tip, mid-fat waist, and Hollowtech tip for floating on pow. There's traditional camber underfoot, a hook-free tip and tail, and large sidecut radius for ripping down chutes or railing down hardpack. ABS sidewalls, Titanal top and base sheets, and a full wood core keep this powerhouse steady and stable when hitting those face-melting speeds. It's all a little hard to talk about and keep your composure (so shut up and ski).

  • Early rise rocker profile
  • Traditional camber underfoot
  • Sandwich and ABS sidewall construction
  • Ash and silver fir wood core
  • 104mm waist
  • Titanal top and bottom sheet
  • Hollowtech tip
  • Hook-free shovel and tail
  • Large radius sidecut
  • UHM sintered base

Mostly terrific!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I skied these last spring in slush at high speed, on some powder, on groomers and on ice. Lots of steeps. Mostly they work great as an all mountain ski. If you like to let it fly in spring slush, they are fantastic. Like water skis. Similar in powder, either steep or meadows. Perfect and beautiful. Responsive and artful. On typical groomers they work fine, but nothing amazing. Just really good skis.

I only found them lacking on hard groomers, hardpack or ice and sometimes I wish I had picked up the 94s. You just can't really carve a great turn if the conditions are colder and harder. On steep ice I really had to work them like mad, setting the edge very hard and holding it.

I'm 165lbs. 5'9". Skied 174s.

Hello,

I am 173cm (5.6 feet) tall and weight around 74kg (163lbs). I am intermediate skier and like to ski mostly off piste in the mountains where in a single day I can get all kinds of snow and conditions. I ski now the Armada TST in 183 but the rocker is to huge and the tail is one of the worst ever. I'm looking for a stiffer ski than the Armada with a flat tail that I can take to any place.
I have a chance to buy the older FX 104 without early rise in length 174. Would it be short?
And what about the TX 107 in length 177? Can it handle crust, slush, hard pack nearly as good as the FX?

Thank you in advance!

The FX 104 is a great ski, pretty burly by my standards. I'd only take these skis out on small powder day, when I am looking to go fast, very fast. If you were looking for a ski that can do it all, with a nice tail and a good rockered shovel, I would recommend looking at the Dynastar Cham series. They come in various waists from 87mm-117mm, these are a little softer than the FX 104's but they have a better tail (2014's and earlier). I loved skiing the Cham 107's in 12" of deep, the bumps, and laying big arcs on the groomers. The sheet of metal in these allows you to push these skis as hard as you want, but you can ski them easy too. The FX 104's are a good ski, the Cham's are more versatile and fun.

Phenomenal ski!

Perfect for groomers and pow. Only criticism is for jump turns in steep narrow couloirs are hard work. Skis is heavy.

My favorite Kaestles!

I love these skis. They are perfect for most conditions. Hard pack, powder, crud, bumps they handle it all!

How did you like how they ski with dynafits? Looking to dynafiddle this season, but not willing to give up the ski stiffness for the types of conditions I typically ski in the east.

need a stiffer dynafit boot for this ski but the bindings are great

So sick

Austrian ski made light and poppy with a full wood core. The hollow core tip is nice and light and floats yet still handles the crud down low. Get these skis for you all mountain, everyday, pow or not, charger. They handle best going fast
