Default Group Buy: Sept 2012 - Advanced Freeride Board

Update 13-Nov-2012: This group buy is now closed. Order is in and money being paid. Can't wait to get the new boards!!! Stay tuned as I imagine once there is more exposure to these boards there may be more interest in another group buy again at a later date.

Please note the Kessler group buy is not happening. We are however trying to work out a group buy with several other companies. Oxess, Volkl and Virus. Page 4 is where the details begin to be hashed out regarding the new attempt at a group buy. Thanks everyone for their interest!


__________________________________________________ ________________________________
Original post:

Just getting the initial details at this point. The board will be various sizes of Kesslers "Ride" snowboard. The board is discussed in detail in the following thread:

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/equ...snowboard.html

Here's the link to the manufacturer.Kessler Ski & Snowboards

At this point I'm trying to gauge interest in a group buy. I don't know pricing or details yet but this will be by the same people that brought it last time for $650 including shipping. I'm hoping it will be close to the same price. This board retails for $1300+ in Canada and the US.

I'm in 100% as long as it's not over $700 or so. Who else is interested? At this point I just want to give him a number so he can get back to us with some firm details.

Here is the e-mail from the group buy guys... They are based in Quebec and I'm assuming the items would ship from Quebec to the US and Canada.

"Hi Aaron,

I asked Veronique to pass your request on to me. I am responsible for our Kessler account and we have just begun planning with them for the winter season. Inventory at Kessler is always limited as these are very special pieces that are imported.

I would love to get you guys set up with the Ride board if possible but it would help to know how many you would be looking for as I am not sure we will launch this on the site. For example, if we can only get our hands on 5, and you want 5, then we will just do it that way.

I am waiting on pricing and availability.

Best Regards
"

I've seen this topic last year, and was vert interested in a board.
I've contacted them several times and asked to ship the board to US freight forwarder, as i'm in Kazachstan. Probably i shoud go with assisped purshase service, but i did not.

That topic was discussing at bobmeronline, that carving board, and as Kessler made alpine boards 1st they all know what this is.
All i can say, that later is that topic someone said, that pricing for this board was a mistake, and they will hardly ever do that deals with kessler.
I don't know if i want the "Ride". At least i'm awaiting for custom-made freeride snowboard for me. Can't say what is better, and even Kessler is definately a killer-board i doubt i need two freeride sticks, with "classis" geometry.

However I'd definately go for it, if they offer alpine board or BX board. I'm not sure what i want more though =))

Yeah I've been speaking directly with the people that offered the last deal. I had thought it was a mistake too but I guess not! Let me know exactly what size and model you're looking for and I'll ask. I'm not sure if they need X number of us to get the ride model, or if they just need to order X number of Kesslers.

Put your name in the hat and I'll see what they say about pricing and options!

For me it's a toss up between the Ride and the BX board, but I do a fair bit of off-piste riding to the Ride will probably be the board for me. If/when I get one I plan on doing a very thorough comparison against my T7...

I'm interested in a Kessler "The Ride" 158cm... let me know when the details for pricing are firmer.

Okay thanks all, I think that's pretty much the critical mass they were looking for. I figure there's always a straggler or two coming in at the end of a group buy so I may pick up an extra board and sell it to anyone that comes in late. I'll let you guys know what they say! Can't wait I was so pissed when I missed the GB last year only for prices to stay at $1350 a board here in Canada...

Okay told them we've got numbers now and here was his reply...

"We are working with Kessler to see what we can do this year. It is taking a bit of time as these boards are quite rare and not mass produced. Im optimistic I'll have some details soon."

I'll let you guys know as soon as I hear more...

I'm in for 176 "The ride".
But, honestly, i'm more interested in alpine kessler or BX. This can be waaay more interesting.
Then Alpine 185 or Cross 168 for me. But honestly i'd be happy with either

ps. how about kessler plates?

If you can really get them for 650$-700$ with shipping, count me in for a 158 ride!
