A modern, all-mountain freeride ski with rocker for added versatility throughout the day or season.

We say

This is another rocket from Kastle! The crew at the factory seem to love making fast blasting skis that have no limits. Out of all the skis we tested in this category this is definitely one that would suit the speed freaks out there, it’s very stable at speed, laughs off big edge angles by firing out tight arcs and generally feels like a beast on the piste. It’s better suited to medium to long arcs where it has no limits on speed and gives you the confidence to attack really hard snow conditions with ease. At slower speeds it feels harder work and less user friendly, but take it from us, you’ll definitely remember making turns on this ski!

Tester Comments

Eilidh McLeod
Great ski, really stable. Grippy for big edge angles and on the steeps
Rowena Phillips
Loves speed and felt relatively stable when fast, but felt like a runaway horse, but I still liked the ride!
