Kästle MX67 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
We pre-tested all of the skis to select the best for the PROSKILAB™ review. Like this, we obtained a limited number of skis with the best possible qualities to meet the PROSKILAB™ guidelines.
In January 2018, we tried a few skis from the Kästle line and decided to include some of the models in our 2019 review, including the MX67. It was an excellent decision as the reviewers absolutely loved the ski.
A good performer and versatile, it's a truly energetic slalom ski without ever being brutal, encouraging riders to play with it. It gives enormous pleasure as well as being efficient and agile. Snow contact is remarkable and the MX67 is a dream on soft snow. It's not very demanding, although it's not quite as happy in skid turns. Easy, reassuring and adaptable, it will help a good rider move on to very dynamic turns. '
The reviewers' comments speak for themselves: "Pure bliss", "An awesome ski", "Ultra accessible and ultra playful, I'm going to buy it!"
"Best ski" 2019, the MX67 is unquestionably a great success story for Kästle, perfectly matching the criteria for PROSKILAB’s "Carvers" category. We recommend this ski for good to expert riders looking for the ideal blend between performance, agility and pleasure.
