Kästle origin

In 1924, Anton Kästle built his first pair of skis in his wainwright workshop in Hohenems, Austria, thus beginning a unique legacy. Over the next decades, Toni Sailer, the Epple sisters, Pirmin Zurbriggen, Tom Stiansen and countless other skiing legends would represent Kästle, in total winning 132 Olympic and World Cup medals and creating a worldwide following along the way. In 1998, Kästle disappeared from the market, abruptly and surprisingly.

In 2007, Kästle returned to the international ski community thanks to an investment group with Rudolf Knünz, once again creating skis that would set the benchmarks for the whole industry: bringing construction technologies from racing and applying them to all-mountain skis, in addition to the development of the revolutionary Hollowtech.

Kästle has always set an impressive standard for industry leaders, and continues to do so, year after year. In 2015, however, Kästle returned to its roots in Hohenems, Austria. History, made in Austria.
