They say

A versatile piste-oriented ski that performs with the utmost precision in more demanding terrain.

We say

Like a lot of the Kästle’s that we tested, the MX84 felt like a well constructed, solid, serious bit of kit. In chopped up conditions and crud it blasts through the snow with ease, and feels powerful enough to really push on to high speeds. It feels at its strongest when tilted up to big edge angles and skied at high speeds. Out of all of the all mountain skis we tested, it was one of the strongest performers for high speed work. At slower speeds, it feels a bit more cumbersome and quite slow to get up onto the edge.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
Servicing wasn’t great on this ski. Probably suits softer, deeper snow in long turns
Aaron Tipping
Strong in chopped up crud, once angle is created it’s strong enough through the turn
