Kästle: Combining Tradition, Innovation and Technology

What’s the story behind Kästle? In 1924, Anton Kästle manufactured the first pair of skis in a wainwright’s workshop in Hohenems, Austria, and a true success story began. 

What’s the story behind Kästle? In 1924, Anton Kästle manufactured the first pair of skis in a wainwright’s workshop in Hohenems, Austria, and a true success story began. 

In the mid-1970s, Kästle started manufacturing cross-country skis, again with a bold drive and ambitious goals. Success does not come by chance, but it is mainly due to hard work. Consequently, cross-country skiers quickly joined the ranks during the alpine racing heyday of the 1980s. 

With audacity, Kästle returned to the Nordic world in 2019 and presented the first cross-country skis with the self-developed Hollowtech technology. In 2020, the company continued with skis in an extraordinary Kästle Mint. These days, two years later, the color that is so fascinating in the snow has become iconic. 

Kästle products stand for performance, quality, and durability. At the second facility based in the Czech cross-country, biathlon, and mountain biking mecca of Nové Město na Moravě, significant investments have recently been made to meet the high demands of manufacturing Kästle skis. There, almost directly beside the ski tracks, you can find the Nordic Competence Center, where the Nordic Race Department and the R&D department for cross-country and jumping skis are located. 

The company’s headquarters are located where it all began: in the time-honored production facility in Hohenems. Today, it is considered more of a design lab, which has become the heart of the R&D department and the Alpine Race Department, and where brilliant minds create innovations and further developments year after year with the goal of continuing the success story. 

Racing

Since the return to Nordic racing, Kästle was able to build up a competitive team of athletes in cross-country skiing and biathlon. The development of racing skis for the top divisions of winter endurance sports takes place with great dedication by the team surrounding Vít Fousek and Martin Petrásek. 

Only by spending countless hours on the track and using the measuring machine is it possible to get the maximum performance out of the RX10 WC model. Above all, this is reflected in the development of structures, bases, and the extremely important construction of the tension curve. 

To ensure that the skis not only work excellently under the climatic conditions prevailing in Central Europe, the Nordic Race Department also travels each year to the central destinations of the FIS and IBU World Cups to carry out a masterful tuning of the skis in different conditions in order to offer the perfectly functioning product for our athletes and partners. 

“From racing to the track” naturally applies to the Nordic part of the Kästle portfolio. The innovations from racing can be found in the remaining models of the Nordic segment, always tailored to the needs of the respective skiers to give everyone that certain racing feeling. 

Technology

Kästle creates unique skis for any condition using proven technologies inspired by racing, utilizing only the finest raw materials. Sophisticated constructions and patented technologies developed in Austria create new benchmarks in performance standards.

The company’s motto is always: “use technologies from racing for series production in order to offer high-performance products for everyone.”

In this sense, you could call the new RX10 skis “racing for the road” or “RX10 2.0’s younger brother.” The new RX 10 could be considered a “World Cup caliber” ski. 

The RX10 is brought in three models: RX10 Skate, RX10 Classic, and RX10 Classic Skin.

RX10 SKATE

Racing for the road! A competition ski with optimal gliding properties.

An aramid honeycomb core, as well as the torsion box made of paulownia and alder wood, provide the RX10 Skate with optimal tracking. In combination with the performance grind by hand, this ski promises unbeatable gliding properties.

A perfect competition ski that convinces athletes and anyone who wants to be fast, not only with its performance but visually as well – with the new design in Kästle mint.

RX10 CLASSIC  

Racing for the road! A competition ski with the perfect kick.

An aramid honeycomb core and a torsion box made of paulownia and alder wood transform the RX10 Classic into a light and fast competition ski. The distinctive rebound guarantees an energy-efficient stride.

Thanks to the perfect balance of traction and gliding zones, as well as a performance grind by hand, this ski convinces winter enthusiasts with an optimal kick. Boasting the new Kästle Mint design, the RX10 Classic also catches the eye with its looks.

RX10 CLASSIC SKIN

As the RX10 Classic, the RX10 Classic Skin is a competition ski with a perfect kick. 

An aramid honeycomb core, as well as a torsion box made of paulownia and alder wood, transforms the RX10 Classic into a light and fast competition ski. The distinctive rebound guarantees an energy-efficient stride.

Thanks to skin technology and the performance grind by hand, this ski convinces with an optimal kick without waxing. Boasting the new Kästle Mint design, the RX10 Classic Skin also catches the eye with its looks.
