Ski Review: Kästle

Kastle is not at all popular and certainly not massive skiing in Russia, but popularity and interest in the modern world are not related things and despite its low popularity, these skis have always been very interesting in skiing.

Naturally, we can’t get past the lineup update and let's figure out what is new in the freeride ski category in the 2019-20 season.

Ski Review: Curv GT / S/Force Bold / Hero Plus Ti

After the fascination with soft all-terrain soft wagons in the format of narrower freeride skis, the ski world switched to a new passion - wide carves or, as they like to call them, groomers. The theoretical idea of ​​this category is not to lose in effectiveness on all conditions of the track from morning velveteen to evening cereal. In theory. In practice, everyone is looking for something different in them, but today we want to compare three bright representatives of this category and find out how they differ from each other.

Ski Test: Nordica GT 76Ti

Today, the tests are not the most interesting for me in terms of skiing, but interesting in terms of the changes that the manufacturer announced in them. The company of Nordic is personally pretty in many respects for me and I would like their skis to become more widespread and affordable for a larger number of skiers, which so far is not exactly working out. Well, we’re going to check on a test track that they got in a not very loyal state - both cool and harsh for amateur skis.

Ski Review: XDR 80Ti / Vantage 82 Ti / Rc One 82GT

The choice is not simple, but the choice among the best skis in the category is completely hopeless. But, one way or another, an attempt to figure out the choice and buy the “right” skis often leads to just such a dilemma: I studied the materiel, looked at an infinite number of ratings, made a list of the “best” skis and realized that it’s still a big problem to choose from the best ones, especially since two of the three also went out of production, and new ones replaced them ... But, we are not used to retreating and let's try to choose the best of three excellent universal skis.

Beginner Carves. What would seem complicated? What do beginners need in order to delve into the question of choice? In theory, everything is simple, but in practice, everything is completely different - it’s the beginner carvies that are the most difficult question of choice: powerful skis scare you with complexity, weak skis scare you with lack of control, on the other hand, you want progress, although it’s still not clear what and in what ... Well, today, as I really love, we compare three similar skis from Head, Fischer and Elan from the top positions of the ratings.

Ski Test: Nordica GT 80 Ti

Today, the tests are not the best and most successful conditions for testing universal wagons: hard and icy snow for which it’s not easy to cling to carves, but there is something to knock at the breakdowns - a frozen velveteen that has risen with a stake. Well, whatever they may be, but these are absolutely real conditions in which every owner of a station wagon can get into skiing. Let's check the station wagons from Nordica that they can show.
