Gravity's a pretty magical thing--it deflects light, forms stars, and explains the perihelion precession of Mercury, but it can also push you down a snowy hill, which is fun and stuff, especially when you have the Kastle FX95 HP Ski underfoot. It might not get you accelerating down the mountain at 9. 8 meters per second squared, but the FX95 does want to go fast, seeing as it has two sheets of Titanal that give it a rock-solid and damp feel that's all about mobbing through chunder and devouring hard snow. ABS sidewalls and low camber underfoot give the ski plenty of edging power, and Kastle's killer elliptical sidecut radius makes it easy to rip off tight turns without compromising stability when you're really lettin' 'er rip. The FX95 likes to slice and dice, but it's no one-dimensional frontside chef. At 95mm underfoot, it's wide enough to comfortably handle boot-top powder and has Kastle's Dual Rise rocker to make sure your tips don't dive and your tails don't finish turns too aggressively and send you over the bars. Both the tip and tail are tapered to prevent a hooky, unpredictable feel in soft snow, and the tip is finished off with Kastle's Hollowtech 2. 0 technology, which uses a cutout section to reduce the tip mass and corresponding vibration, so you don't get chattered to death when you're rallying down uneven snow.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
