177cm Kastle Poudreues W/ Lg Volie Switchback X2 (Used)
The Kastle TX107 is a dedicated powder touring ski for dedicated deep-snow specialists who want to fly on the way up and float on the way down. The distinctive blue shape you see at the tip is Kastle's Hollowtech technology, which lightens the tip of the ski and helps it return to a stable condition more quickly after impact. To further reduce weight, both the top and bottom sheets are made of fiberglass plastic (GRP).
Karuba wood in the core provides an exceptional strength to weight ratio. In order to realize a comfortable longitudinal flex with high torsional rigidity, the traditional sandwich core concept has been reinforced with a structural element (CAP). This wood core, in combination with a fibreglass cap, allows for perfect harmonization of vibrations and flexing characteristics. The reinforced housing from various fiberglass sheets acts like a torsional box, equipping the ski with high torsional rigidity. This harmonization is only made possible through the combination of high-quality sandwich construction and a fiberglass cap
If Sondre Norheim could have skied the Voilé X2 Telemark Binding, he might never have left the mountains of Norway for the flatlands of North Dakota.
The X2 sums up 35 years of telemark binding innovation and evolution from Voilé. One of the hallmarks of that body of work is our consistent abandonment of the use of flexible (and breakable) cables. Stranded wires may be great for moving electrons, but for transferring turning forces to a ski, our own tenet of rigid coiled springs, steel rods and spring-loaded cartridges has more than proven itself over time.
In 2007, Voile took a cue from the randonnée world and introduced the now-legendary, Voilé Switchback, a telemark binding with a foolproof, free-pivot option that greatly facilitates climbing. (And does so with the simple flick of a ski pole.)
Built on the success of the Switchback, the X2 is a beefier, more-active, binding—but still an uphill wonder. And wrapped up in a sleek, minimalist design that a Scandinavian would admire and that lives up to a Voilé credo: Less is ALWAYS more.
Optimized for maximum power transfer, the X2 is augmented with stiffer cartridges, a much-longer toe plate and a boot pivot point relocated 26mm to the rear. The happy result is a powerful binding with superb downhill performance and the added efficiency of much-easier uphill travel. With regard to the latter, the X2 and Switchback, as well as our 3-Pin Hardware, all feature dual-height climbing elevators.
When you reach the top of your toil, just “switch back” to the X2’s downhill mode, and you’ll soon be making turns that would even make Sondre jealous.
Not compatible with the Voilé Release Kit.
Condition: These skis are in good shape, have some base damage that has been repaired. See pictures for more details.
