They say

Morning powder, afternoon piste or vice versa. When riding the FX, you are truly free to do as you like due to its playfulness and float combined with stability and confidence.

We say

Kastle have a reputation for building very high quality skis, the FX does not disappoint on that front. This is a ski that immediately feels like it has amazing contact with the snow, it’s like the feelings underfoot have just been switched onto HD quality! On the edge it has limitless grip and will drive through any tricky conditions with absolute impunity. The flex is incredibly smooth and the overall quality just keeps shining through on each turn. This is a direct, powerful ski that feels perfectly suited to skiing the hardpack, it feels more like a wide bodied piste ski than a true all mountain choice.
