Avalanche FLP AFT - $1132
Avalanche FLP - $1030
Avalanche FR Freeride - $771
Ultimate Freecarve - $1234

Now those prices include tax, and I'm not sure how it works with the VAT being 15% or so, and my local taxes are only 5% so I'm not sure if I could apply for a rebate?

At the moment the FLP AFT is sitting $200 lower than the Kessler Ride MSRP. I was really hoping for much lower than that as the price of admission...

Lets see what the other manufacturers say, or maybe can get a better deal?
I would not get my hopes up with the guys. While they do have group-buys, their focus is not oin really saving money/offering low prices, but rather they are about carrying lifestyle products that people might not have access to or might not be aware of. Price is not really something they pay a lot of attention - in fact, plenty of the stuff they sell is more expensive than from many other (r)etailers. The Kessler deal last year was really a bit of aberration.
