Technical info:
The T-series has an unusually light cap construction. Like many of Kästle´s freeride skis, the TX107 has a long sidecut radius, especially in the back ski. It has short rocker in the front, which is also soft. The camber is high in the back ski. It is unusual that the setback (12 cm) is shorter than what is indicated in the mounting instructions (15 cm), but because of the long turning radius it will most likely not cause any problems. Soft front ski and medium flex towards the back.

On snow:
Kästle T107 is a long and somewhat unsofisticated powder ski. It is not among the smoothest skis in the test, at least not if you want to carve the turns. But it floats well and is straightforward to skid around with. On hard snow it doesn’t respond that well. This has probably been sacrificed in order to get the weight down. If you like long turns and long turning radius on soft snow, you will enjoy the Kästle T107.
