 Overview
 

The Kastle BMX 78 makes a great ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier who is seeking smooth and easy turns on the front side of the mountain with a very quick edge to edge feeling. A 78mm waist is very agile and nimble for zipping quicker tighter turns. A small amount of rocker in the tip of the ski absorbs vibrations from crud, and initiate turns very quickly. A low amount of camber underfoot delivers a very strong grip on the snow with enough rebound to snap you into your next turn. The camber underfoot and wood core keep the ski very stable at high speeds, make it ultra-responsive in the bumps and a great ski for Back East or Midwest firm conditions. Kastle's Hollowtech Tip reduces tip chatter, increases maneuverability, and lowers the overall swing weight of the BMX 78 by pulling heavier material away from the tip of the skis. If you want a ski that is very quick edge to edge, stable at speed, but will not overwork you as you zip down a groomer, the Kastle BMX 78 is the ski for you.

Q: I just purchased kastle bmx 178cm -former school racer and strong technical skier- 5' 9" 175 lbs. currently 56 years old but still aggressive, fall line skier. Most skiing done in northeast with some in Canada. What are some good binding choices for a ski like this with a 78cm waist ? I have always used look or marker but open to suggestions

A: If you are looking for race like performance the Marker Xcell has a strong energy transfer and performance to enhance the carving ability of this ski.

Q: I'm 6'0" 190lbs adv. intermediate and these would see the most action in the alps. Are they going to hold up at faster speeds for my size?
Asked : Oct 25, 2016
By : Shane, Italy

A: This is a pretty stiff and aggressive ski that will carve well for you at your weight and ability if you are not super aggressive at the 178cm. If you are super aggressive a longer ski will provide you with some more stability.

Q: I'm looking for a good East coast bump and tree ski. I'm an advanced skier, love to carve and go fast. 195lbs and 5'8. Would this be a good option? I'm comparing them to the Latigos. Would these hold up at speed? And what size should I get? Thanks!

A: The tail shape and flex pattern makes the BMX 78 a pretty solid bump ski. They are pretty solid on firm conditions, and stable at speeds. Based on your weight, and where you plan on primarily skiing them, the 178cm would be the best size for you.

Q: What bindings would you recommend for my 17 yo 5'10" 110 p, expert skier daughter?
Asked : Jun 08, 2016

A: Based on her weight and ability the Tyrolia Attack 11, or the Marker Squire would be appropriate for your daughter. The 90mm brake size would be the best fit.

Q: I'm a Midwestern skier, athletic big at 6'2", 210 lbs. I'm aggressive and not afraid of speed. Is the 178 going to be long enough for me on ice and groomed hardpack?
Asked : Jun 01, 2016
By : James, Madison, WI
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Since you will not be eating up a ton of vertical the 178cm will give you agility and quickness edge to edge at Mid-Western ski areas. If you do head to the Rockies where you will be skiing bigger runs and going faster, you may notice a loss of stability at your weight and ability.

Q: I have a Marker Motion Binding on my old skis. Will it work with this ski - is it a good solution?
Asked : Apr 24, 2016
By : alex, san francisco
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The Motion Binding system was exclusive to Volkl skis and is not compatible with any other ski. You would need to purchase a binding to mount on the BMX 78.

Q: the product description says high camber, I was under the impression these were low camber with tip and tail rocker for easier turn initiation? Also do you have the integrated k12 binding system for them, if not does the 3rd party binding materially change the feel of the ski based on your testing?
Asked : Mar 28, 2016
By : MM, New Jersey
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The BMX 78 has a little different rocker profile than the wider more freeride oriented BMX skis. Since this BMX is pretty narrow it has a friendlier on-trail rocker profile. We do not have this ski available with the K12 System. System bindings are great for carving skis, but flat bindings are getting so good for on carving skis with the energy transfer, that they allow nearly as much flex as a system binding does. If you wanted the optimal amount of flex with this ski a Look Pivot 12 has the smallest footprint of any binding out there, and would be a great option.
