2021 Kastle DX 85 Women's Skis
Kastle DX 85 Women's Skis
The Kastle DX 85 women's skis are an awesome example of a high-end all-mountain ski that is also accessible for intermediate and advanced skiers. Expert skiers shouldn't be the only ones that benefit from a top-flight construction and high-end profile, all skiers should get to enjoy the finer things of the sport. This is where the Kastle DX 85 women's skis come in to play. At 85 mm underfoot, these skis have that perfect all-mountain and all-around shape that can carve a clean round turn as easily as it can rip through the local bumps and trees. Responsive, but not overly stiff, the Kastle DX 85 women's skis will respond to skier input like a much burlier ski, but the build and shape of the ski allow it to function more in the middle-ranges of speed and aggressiveness. Built with a wood core consisting of beech and fir stringers, Kastle puts its signature on these skis in terms of high-quality precision. By laying the wood stringers in a vertical orientation, the wood core functions a lot stiffer than if they were larger blocks of wood. This allows for a more precise edge and snow feel, as it allows the ski to flex into the snow with more stiffness than not. Add to that a layer of fiberglass on the top of the wood core, and you've got all the energy and responsiveness that you'll ever need out of an all-mountain ski like this.

I'm comparing it to the Salomon Stand 94's. Can you give me a good comparison?
I like heavier skis, stiffer, too. i usually get the 152 cm(I'm 162cm, 110lb ish, advanced intermediate). I'm looking into owning my own now. I'd really appreciate your feedback on skis and binding! thanks!
The Stance is wider, so it does have more all-mountain and softer snow versatility, while the Kastle is certainly more of a front-side and carving enthusiast. I think the Stance offers more in terms of capabilities, but isn't quite as good of a carver as the DX 85, so it more depends on the conditions and terrain that you prefer and find yourself in more often. We have both the Salomon and the Kastle paired with a Tyrolia Attack 11 bindings. Have fun!
