BEST FOR: All-mountain versatility.
THE TEST: Included in the frontside category at our Snowbird, Utah, ski tests, the MX83 lived up to its billing as a stable control freak on multiple snow surfaces. Every tester wrote the word “damp” on their review cards, usually followed by “stable, predictable, and solid.” But the MX’s dampness and predictability come at a cost: you don’t get as much energy out of each turn as with Kästle’s BMX line.
THE VERDICT: “You could drink a cup of coffee and text while going 40mph on these things,” said one tester. 123/83/109
