2020 Kastle MX89 Skis

The 2020 Kastle MX89 skis are an absolutely ripping on-trail performer. How quickly we forget about fully cambered skis. We've gotten used to having tip and tail rocker in pretty much all of our skis these days that we've forgotten how well a cambered ski performs. When you tip the ski on edge, the MX89 instantaneously hooks on to the turn. You'll feel the camber underfoot engage and take you for a 17 meter ride through one of the cleanest turns you've ever made. The precision and performance of these skis is simply remarkable. The flat tail holds you in the turn until the end, and by that time, the skis have built up an enormous amount of energy that gets released and propels you into the next turn almost automatically. The skier should be fairly balanced, as the amount of power and precision is enough to really throw you off your center if you're not committed. At 89 mm underfoot, the skis are on the wide side for a dedicated groomer ski, but don't let that fool you, the quickness from edge to edge is pretty amazing. They do have the capability to handle off-piste terrain, and if you do take them off-roading, be prepared to put in the work. They'll give it back to you, but you have to put in the energy in the first place. With a wood core and dual metal laminate, Kastle has made the MX89 after a pure carver's heart.

Are you going to get any of these in 188cm?
Question by: John Truso on Oct 14, 2021, 7:27 PM
Hi John,

Those were the 2020 model so we will not be getting any more of those in. We do have this years MX 88 in a 187cm, which would be the closest option to that. I included the link below if you want to check them out.

would these skis perform well in bumps? i have a pair of stockli AR's that are great obviously but I am looking for a pair of shorter skis, although not totally dedicated to bumps, but something that i could carve with but perform well in bumps. I would say my level would be an advanced intermediate learning to perform in moguls. Any suggestions on skis that fit that bill would be appreciated.
Thanks

HI James!
They're on the stiff and heavy side for moguls, especially if you're in the intermediate range. In that width range, I'd look to something like the Elan Ripstick 88 or the Fischer Ranger 90 for a good mix of on-trail carving performance and mogul diligence. Have fun!

Hi Anita,
Thanks for reaching out to us. Kastle does not make this ski in a 144 size sorry! There are other excellent options to choose from, here are just a few for you to look at!

I had the kastle 88 from 5 years ago. They were 159s. I am 5’2” and female so they were a bit long but I used them mostly as cruising skis, I had another ski for moguls as the flat tail wasn’t my favorite. I want to buy a new pair. I loved how they performed on hard pack and crud and you could still take them put West. Which one the MX 88 or 89 is most like the older ones? And am I better off getting the rocker because of the length? BTW, used this ski to get my level 2 PSIA,
Question by: Melissa Cohen on Feb 3, 2022, 1:37 PM
Hi Melissa,

The 88 is most like the 88 5 years ago. Minimal rocker in its shape, Poplar and Beech wood and titanal in its build. A great carver, and crud buster.

Have fun and enjoy!
