Kastle XP20 Skate Medium
lightweight long-distance ski | precise control with optimum power transmission | narrow sidecut for optimized glide
The narrow XP20 is very lightweight and offers excellent transfer of power. The carbon-reinforced honeycomb construction and HOLLOWTECH 2.0 create a perfectly balanced ski.
The XP20 really excels at high speed and over long distances. It is robust, offers precise control and the glide performance will suit more energetic skiers.
Being world class requires especially one thing: world class equipment. At the start of this millennium our HOLLOWTECH technology triggered a revolution in alpine skis.
We pursue this same consistent approach in the nordic sector. Removing the unnecessary layers at
the tip of the ski makes the tip and therefore the entire ski lighter.
This creates a substantially more balanced ski and reduces the rotational force during forward propulsion. In turn, this requires less energy from the athlete and helps them get to the finish quicker.
All of our cross-country skis feature a carbon-reinforced CAP construction where the surface layer runs over the sides, effectively protecting the core.
Each Kästle nordic ski is thus impeccably designed for its designated application.
Nowhere is survival harder than in nature – and the solutions we apply here are fittingly sophisticated. Bees, with their hexagonal-shaped honeycomb, have developed a very stable structure that results in maximum strength for minimal material input.
That is why the core of a Kästle ski is made using the honeycomb principle and natural materials. It reduces weight to a minimum and simultaneously increases stability. It also maintains good flex and results in explosive rebound underfoot.
The honeycomb structure is encased in a torsion box made of ultra-lightweight paulownia wood, which we call UL WOOD. It ensures optimum torsional and flexural rigidity at minimal weight.
The type of base is perfectly matched to suit different applications and conditions.
WC RACE COLD
High-performance World Cup base with excellent wax absorption and superb glide performance. Specially developed for cold, dry snow and low atmospheric humidity.
In addition to the base material, the grinding of the base determines glide performance and must therefore be selected according to the prevailing conditions. As a general rule, the warmer it is, the coarser the structure required.
The grind is applied at a temperature just above 0 °C. Maintaining a cool environment throughout the finishing procedure, allows the small futures to be precisely ground into the high-performance base.
Universal race grinding for new snow or fine, dry, cold snow.
We use a specially made press to make our new cross-country skis. With over 40 adjustment points it guarantees an unprecedented level of camber tensioning and stiffness adjustment.
For cross-country skiers, aside from the length, it is the stiffness of the ski that is a deciding factor.
For this ski we offer the gradations MEDIUM and HARD.
Tip 41 mm
Waist 44 mm
