Kästle joins Cross-Country World Cup with RX series

With more than 30 years of expertise in the World Cup business, Kästle returns to the world of cross-country skiing with its own racing division and three cross-country model series. We'd like to introduce you to one of these, the new RX series.

A brand of tradition

Kästle is known as a brand with a rich past. In 1924, Anton Kästle manufactured his first pair of ski, starting an unrivaled path of success. About a century later, in 2019, the brand has begun mass-producing competitive skis, bringing experienced cross-country skiers the highest possible performance. The RX series represents Kästle's comeback in the Nordic area.

The light-weight RX models promise a World Cup level performance with maximized energy transmission. This way, World Cup athletes and expert cross-country skiers enjoy ideal skiing precision. The RX10 models are also available for children with an equal type of construction.

The RX10 series – designed for World Cup professionals

Different technologies are used in the RX10 models.

Using complex constructions and patented Austrian technology, Kästle created a performance that optimally supports every athlete. The Honeycomb Core, built with natural fibers in a honeycomb structure, ensures the ideal torsion and bending stiffness at a minimal weight.

Additionally, the omission of unnecessary layers reduce the ski's weight. This so-called Hollowtech technology makes the ski lighter, balancing it perfectly and reducing rotation forces when moving the ski forward. This helps athletes move in a more energy-saving way, allowing them to reach their destinations faster.

A precise camber tension and the manual finish guarantee highly efficient skiing with unmatched glide and track characteristics. The models are also equipped with an additional carbon-reinforced CAP construction which makes the surface film run across the side and therefore protects the core.

Additional skin version for Junior classic

The new RX models are also available for younger cross-country fans.

Kästle also offers a skin version of the RX10 Classic Junior, made with 100 percent mohair fur in the binding area. This model offers perfect grip even under hart and slippery snow conditions. At the same time, the ski glides better and quieter. The RX10 Classic Junior doesn't require any previous experience with grip wax, making it easy to handle under all conditions.

Overview of all models

The RX10 series is available in five different models. Beside the appropriate ski length, choosing the ski's stiffness is decisive for every cross-country skier. With 40 different settings, the RX10 series offers perfect balance of camber tension and stiffness.
