Kastle MX84

Whether we threw icy groomers or a mogul field at the MX84, it turned better than any ski in the test. The wood core, fortified with two sheets of metal, grips hardpack like a race ski. The camber underfoot imbues the board with plenty of life, the tip's weight-reducing polyurethane cutouts make for fluid turn initiation, and the tapered tail resists hang-ups to allow for turns of any size.
