“I may not be picking my line through slalom gates anymore, but my skiing style is still usually fast with short sharp turns. On freshly groomed pistes I can’t help it. Especially when I’ve got the RX12 SL underfoot, with its race-inspired sidecut and precise performance ¬– it does what I want before I’ve even thought it!”

The RX12 SL has a race-inspired sidecut for nimble handling. The proven sandwich-sidewall construction, combined with Hollowtech 2.0 provides more dampness and better grip through short, fast turns.

With precise edge grip and explosive short turns, the RX12 SL is ideal for the piste purists out there. This is the go-to choice for skiers looking for a high-performance and lively on-piste ski with a short turning radius.

Technologies

WE CREATE UNIQUE SKIS FOR ANY CONDITION USING PROVEN TECHNOLOGIES INSPIRED BY RACING, UTILIZING ONLY THE FINEST RAW MATERIALS. SOPHISTICATED CONSTRUCTIONS AND PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES DEVELOPED IN AUSTRIA CREATE NEW BENCHMARKS IN PERFORMANCE STANDARDS.
  1. CLASSIC SANDWICH-SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION
  2. RESISTANT MATT PROTECTION VARNISH
  3. TITANAL
  4. FIBERGLASS
  5. POPLAR / ASH WOODCORE

Hollowtech

Our patented, key technology is unique to ski manufacturing. By removing unneeded layers in the front of the ski we make the ski lighter. This results in several advantages: the ski becomes up to 30 % damper, the ski feels more stable, edge-grip is more powerful, steering is more precise and the overall weight is reduced. 

Woodcore

MADE OUT OF POPLAR AND ASH

Each Kästle ski is built with the finest wood core, manufactured with precision to one-tenth of a millimeter. This allows us to control the weight, responsiveness and dampening characteristics of the ski, resulting in a high-quality, durable product.

Sandwich-Sidewall Construction

We adapt our Sandwich-Sidewall Construction from alpine racing and consider this technology a distinguishing feature of all of our models. This design gives every Kästle Ski optimal flex and torsional rigidity, creating sensitive and direct power transmission and ensuring total control, even at high speed. For the RX12 SL we used the classic SANDWICH-SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION.

Elliptical Radius

Each model is designed to have its own carving characteristics, which is based on the ski’s intended application, by adjusting the radius along the waist of the ski. The shape of the Elliptical Radius determines how quickly and aggressively the ski enters and exits a turn.

 

Graphite Sinter Base

Kästle uses uncompromisingly high-quality UHM SINTERED GRAPHITE bases, like those used in ski racing, for all its adult skis. This creates a durable, long-lasting base with excellent glide performance and wax absorption. Our children and junior skis feature though, easy-care extruded bases.

Camber

We build our skis with classic camber and distinguish between Standard Camber and Low Camber: With STANDARD CAMBER, the ski center is clearly elevated and the contact points to the snow are far forward and back. The effective edge is longer and the ski initiates turns more quickly and precisely. 

Shovel and Tail

With the shovel and tail design, we can refine the aggressiveness of our skis.

The FAST GRIP SHOVEL is a short shovel in which the contact point and the widest part of the shovel are located far forward. This ensures a faster response at the beginning of the turn.

The FAST GRIP TAIL is designed with a contact point at the widest part of the tail, near the end of the ski. This results is a more aggressive and precise performance at the end of the turn.

Rise

With Rise technology, we optimize the shovel of the ski and control its float depending on the ski’s application.

CLASSIC RISE creates improved responsiveness for on-piste and all-mountain-slopes.
