Slim down your backcountry quiver with these performance-driven lightweight skis. An update to the Kastle tour-cross repertoire, the TX 97 closes the gap between something that’s agile enough for long touring days, but stable enough for solid downhill performance.
- Light and snappy karuba wood core.
- Traditional sandwich construction with reinforced cap to balances rigidity and flex.
- Hollowtech core has a cut-out in the tip filled with fibreglass to reduce weight and keep it from chattering at speed.
- Early rise tip with hook-free shovel for stability.
- Single radius sidecut for adaptability to unpredictable conditions and tricky terrain.
- Standard camber underfoot.
Sandwich and combination construction is generally used for big freeride-style skis while the lighter structural cap type of construction is more commonly found on cross-country skis.
