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.


The new, revolutionized HOLLOWTECH 3.0 has a two-tier construction: a new outer ring cuts out even more material and therefore even more weight. The size of the HOLLOWTECH is always precisely matched to the shovel of each particular model - for performance that's truly unbeatable.


Thanks to a carbon layer in the shovel, the entire construction is even more stable and lighter. The Hollowtech 3.0 Carbon convinces with its strong damping properties and is used exclusively in the MX model line.

Featured exclusively in the TX range, the HOLLOWTECH is highlighted with a luminous material, creating a glow-in-the-dark effect.

Especially for our high-performance piste models and racing skis, we have further developed the Hollowtech 2.0. Even larger than before, it ensures greater stability, even at top speeds in the World Cup.

Each Kästle ski is built with the finest woodcore, 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.

The choice of wood is determined by the desired properties of the ski in terms of stiffness, grip, stability, and weight. If the final product is to be stable, we choose a wood with a higher density, such as poplar or beech. A ski that should convince its rider with lightness and float, usually contains a lighter wood, such as paulownia. In many cases, however, we use a combination of different types of wood to meet all requirements. These are glued together and only then pressed with the remaining layers. By the way: we need a good 20,000 liters of glue per year for this. To put that into perspective, that's 11,511 full bathtubs.
But why wood anyway? No other substance can provide the ski with the desired handling characteristics as well as this material - and retain them over a longer period of time. It is quite simply THE quality feature, which is why not only every Kästle has a wood core, but special attention is paid to its origin in the selection as well. Thus, we use up to almost 80% domestic woods, whose main supplier is located in Switzerland.



To be able to further vary the riding characteristics of our skis, additional titanal, carbon or fiberglass inserts are used.

Titanal promises damping, stability and optimal power transmission. So it's no surprise that we use this material in a large number of our skis, since Kästle stands for maximum smoothness at high speeds.

Carbon is one of the most multifaceted materials. Exceptionally resilient and with the lowest weight, it is extremely interesting for ski construction. We use it mainly for our touring skis.

Glass fiber is characterized by its high elasticity. Usually this material is used together with carbon inserts to achieve the perfect combination of stability and flexibility.

The base, as the coating of the running surface, is another essential component of our skis and is largely responsible for their gliding properties. In our skis we mainly use a fast racing base, which consists of over 35% recycled material.

Kästle topsheets are made of special TPU or polyamide. For products that need to be a bit more robust - such as our freeriders or children's skis - we use a corundum protective surface.


Our TRI-TECH construction combines three innovative technologies to reduce weight while maximizing stability, power transmission and float: 3D Shape, Triple Woodcore & Titanal.


By using varying thicknesses of woodcores, we create contours along the length of the ski which substantially increases torsial rigidity and stability without requiring more materials.


Kästle is the first ski manufacturer to incorporate three types of wood within one ski. Higher density woods are used for the core, with lighter woods at the sides. Combined with our other technologies, this saves up to 500 g per pair of skis - a truly revolutionary feat!


New to TRI_TI technology are two titanal inlays. These added layers provide even more stability and dampness, especially at high speeds. Despite the additional metal layers, the ski is only slightly heavier than its predecessor and yields maximum power transmission, in addition to the highest performance and precision, even in demanding terrain.


We have adopted our SANDWICH-SIDEWALL construction from alpine racing and it is a distinguishing feature of some of our models.


This method of construction gives Kästle skis optimum flex and torsional rigidity, creates sensitive and direct transfer of power and ensures total control, even at high speeds.

Vogue Symbol

One thing all VOGUE women models have in common is maximum performance for women. The ski flex and binding mount points are designed specifically for women and the construction is lighter and more comfortable all round. And when it comes to the styling, that’s also designed by women, for women.

We build our skis with classic camber and distinguish between Standard Camber and Low Camber.


With Sandard 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.


With Low Camber, the ski center is slightly elevated and the contact points are moved toward the ski center. The effective edge is consequentially less, and the ski is more playful and forgiving.


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


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

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 Hook-Free Shovel is a longer shovel that is often combined with Early or Progressive Rise. With this design the contact point to the snow is moved toward the center of the ski, thus ensuring a more forgiving and playful performance.


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. 


The Hook Free Tail is often combined with Dual Rise and a longer tail, with the contact point being moved toward the center of the ski. The result is a forgiving, playful performance when exiting a turn.
