  1. I have 2 boards for sale. 162cm & 174cm. Kessler 162cm: this is a slalom board. I am not exactly sure on SCR but I am assuming it is in the range of 7-12m variable SCR. There is cosmetic scratches on top sheet. I actually recently bought this board but I have new board coming in so I need to lighten up the load. This has 20cm waist. Flex is comparable to normal slalom board. PRICE: $OLD Kessler 174cm: there are moderate vist rash and other type of plate rushes. There are also some indentation due to use of plates but none of it affects how it rides. This board is considered to be GS board but I am not sure the SCR. I am assuming it is in the range of 10-16m variable SCR. This has 19cm waist. Flex is softer than 162. Has nick on the bottom sheet that does not affect the ride at all. It has good structural grind done by professional, hence base is fast. PRICE: $300 shipped (UPDATED) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vkU_RJz8MC4Yl5QiNsxpQ38yiG5vakfS/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vyyxKctzj-BaKcBnO34cCgFdKKOE4IPp/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FggYI6m1WsQS4vcnpxXHP5bpFOq09ZSh/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/141ujaPGjTBVNyiLvC9c4UQw_cIcBE1By/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/18CyNGLrLNk-vrsDkuH-05jzrnEDQ0DFS/view?usp=drivesdk

  4. Kessler 171 Great GS board for young or lighter racer, storage was on base This board has been raced quite a bit, but still in good condition for the price. $325 US plus shipping PM if interested Bucky
  5. Hi, I’m already thinking about my next acquisition for *next* season. The boards on my shortlist are the Sperconductor and the 168 - both seem to earn glowing reviews from all you sages and super athletes. How should I think about this trade off? As for more infor about me: my quiver includes a Donek Monster, a Coiler Stubby v2, and an older Swoard... I’ve been carving since 1991, but still suck at it :-). Live on the West Coast now and am looking for something that makes the medium carve as easy as possible for me (not slalom nor giant). I like the liveliness of the Monster, but also the stability and steadfast hold of Coiler... Thx so much for you thoughts!
  6. This is formerly Caroline Calve's board made for her by Kessler just before she retired in 2015. Mark Fawcett and I rode it to test plates in 2016. Since then, it's been sitting in a closet. Tried to flog this on some racing groups but it's all about All-flex there. Inserts for ASIP/UPM and 4x4 19.5cm waist Mint shape with World Cup tune and structure Caro weighed 74 kg (163 lb) when competing but she's a World Cup athlete so judge accordingly. I personally found this very easy to ride (and I ride like a 10 year old girl). I also witnessed Fawcett charging hard on it. Bottom line is it's a very versatile board without the intimidation factor of a 185. USD$550

  8. Now there's no "Bomber" whom we rightly had to respect, I think I can ask this question.... There are multiple variants of the standard F2 binding out there, but has anyone any reviews/ experience/ comparative information on them? I like to avoid riding stuff which is more than a decade old, so I ought to buy some more bindings and I'm wondering which will work best. The ones I know of are: Standard F2 Titanium bindings, same as I've used for the last 20 years and which work flawlessly for me. They come in two sizes of which I use the smaller. You can get blue anodized ones thi season, it seems, as well as the standard black. The CNC version of the above. These are pretty and maybe I should get some to put on my bookshelves, but they're not commonly used in races I think so perhaps they have "stiffness" problems as per some other machined bindings. They're likely heavier and more expensive than (1). The Virus "Power Lock" stuff... they look similar in principle to the F2, but apparently are "machined from a solid block" of whatever so perhaps are stiffer? I'm not really looking for that, and I'm kind of suspicious of Virus as they make those extremely narrow boards which isn't my thing. These come with a baseplate - is that mandatory? How high does that put the boot over the board? I kind of like simple and low, hence F2 Ti Race not F2 Titanflex. Kessler's F2 variant. These have white handles and no step-in variant, but otherwise look like stock F2 bindings. Is that what they are? These come in 3 sizes, suggesting they're not just a re-brand of the F2s. Are there any more, perhaps South-East Asian variants I should look at? I'm just interested in any actual users of these and similar bindings... what are the main characteristics and what do I need to know which isn't obvious?....

  10. Mounted up and ridden just once, never raced or trained on. The base of this board is pristine. No other board has won more medals or titles at international events than THE ALPINE. Snowboarding professionals around the world highly rate the steady edge grip and the control provided in all conditions due to the Kessler Shape Technology. THE ALPINE provides easy handling when competing and racing, as well as during freestyle carving on icy terrain. Feel at ease from the very first turn, no matter what level you are at. Ambitious carvers love the THE ALPINE!

    Kessler 171

    Bought used direct from Hansjürg a few years ago and only used 3-4 times since. Have since moved back to softboots; feeling bad about leaving it to gather dust so here I am. Base is in great shape, no scrapes of note; needs a fresh wax. Small nick in the nose is the worst damage. Appears to be a custom build; a bit wider than the stock 171 Alpine - see attached build sheet. $450 obo + shipping. Prefer paypal. Currently located in Vancouver BC
  13. Like new 2017/2018 season Kessler GS 180(the alpine) for sale! This board only has one full day of riding, but I have decided to let go because I prefer shorter SL boards. Obviously, base and top sheet is in excellent condition, except for binding marks from 1 day of riding. Below is the spec from the Kessler website. price is $900 + shipping. Thank you! -Ed
  14. I have... 185cm Kessler built for the Canadian national team. Standard four bolt set at 52cm as well as upm bolts. Built for 185lbs rider. Storage wax every year plenty of edge left. $600 184cm Donek beta test board, noodle stick. Plenty of edge left and always waxed properly. Traditional four bolt set $400 Set of Trench Digger 3. Blue bases. Used vigorously but just a bulletproof binder. $200 First gen donek isolation plate. $50 27.5 mp UPZ 5 buckle RC10 boots creme color. $150 All prices are negotiable, no ridiculous offers other than the first gen plate. Will include with board if you want.
  15. Like the title says, Kessler 171 board. Bought it a couple of seasons ago and just haven't ridden it much. It was a spare board for a racer out of Steamboat, apparently. You can see in the pictures the top sheet has marks from the K-plate they had on it and a few dings from just being used. The base is in good shape, you would probably want to put a fresh tune on it for racing, but it is certainly ready for just going out to carve. The edges have a little surface rust because I got lazy after the last time I took it out. I can clean them up and iron on some fresh wax before it goes out. I would like to get $600 $500 plus shipping for it. I think that's fair considering how little I used it and what I paid for it. If you feel differently, please feel free to make an offer. Thanks for your interest.

  19. Hi! Cleaning out the garage... time to sell various equipment! Prices & descriptions listed below. All prices in USD and exclude shipping & related costs (shipped from Whistler, Canada). Preference is to sell board & plate as package - this equipment was designed to ride together, and this gives you a chance to save on shipping. I'll cut a deal for purchases of more than 1 item. Ryan Kessler 185cm GS Board - $300 + Shipping Board is from 2011, and saw regular use (10-30 days/season) from 2011-2013. Since then it's been stored safely. I was the only owner of this board. This snowboard was considered the baseline flex pattern used by Canada Snowboard at the time, and is the same profile as Jasey's 2010 board. Board has UPM/Apex inserts, as well as a 4-hole pattern under the topsheet. Kessler 162cm SL Board - $400 + Shipping Board is from 2012, and saw regular use (10-30 days/season) from 2012-2013. Since then it's been stored safely. I was the second owner of this board, having purchased it from Matt Morison in excellent condition (only a partial season of use from him). Board has UPM/Apex inserts, as well as a 4-hole pattern. Vist Plate - $200 + Shipping Selling a vist plate from 2010-2011ish? This is one of their older models that splits down the middle (fits in your carry-on!). I fitted this plate with different screws, so no need to undo your bindings and remove 10 screws just to check/tighten your plate, only to have to reverse the process and then mount your bindings again... Just drop an allen key through the top plate holes, and you can tighten/remove the whole plate as pictured. The most convenient vist plate you've ever used! I may also have some extra sliding & locking hardware, so I can potentially toss those in as well. Apex V1 and V2 plates - $100 & $150 + Shipping I have 2x original V1 plate (as used by Jasey and the Canadian team in the lead-up and years following the Vancouver Olympics), as well as 1x V2 plate (shorter nose). These plates go great with the listed boards. This V2 plate is made with a balsa wood core, which is a bit lighter and stiffer than their usual plates. One of the V1 plates has a small hairline crack behind where the front binding was mounted (regular stance). I'm including some Lexan plates (stiff plastic sheets) that help distribute pressure and will prevent any future cracks. Quick note here - I only have two sets of UPM hardware available, but Apex sells individual sets and adapters to other mounting systems (Allflex, 4x4).
  20. 162 Kessler $400 shipped A custom build for a 155-180lb rider. 19.4cm waist. I'm guessing a ~2011-12 build? *SOLD* Base and edges are in very nice condition, close to 90+% of edge left and still some base structure left from a race grind. There is some minor cosmetic "gate rash". Original owner raced for a "season or so". I don't believe this board has seen much use since the original owner sold it. Minor discoloration of ptex top from where a plate and bindings were mounted. 4x4 (19.5 inch stance) and UPM inserts. I found out after buying this board last spring that it was made for a lighter rider. I weigh 185lbs and the board rides great for me on cruisers, but I am pushing its limits on steeper runs. This is the original post...
  21. I bought this and never rode it. Custom Kessler 185 circa 2014/15 season. Ptex top. Plenty of edge life. Has been well ridden. 20cm waist. Has a little bit of gate rash on the nose(hardly noticeable) and a little bit of extra de-camber at the tail. Came to me this way and was not shared by seller. Way bigger than anything I ride so it's time to part ways. Clean board really. Would make a great early/late season board for the right rider. Additional photos on request. Tail number reads 185 3091
  22. Selling one of my SBX race boards to make way for a couple longer ones for this years World Cup season. It's 164cm 13.22 side cut. 270 waist width and a stance range of 54-62cm. I've kept this board in great condition and have had some awesome racing on it. It was custom made for 11.5 boot and I was weighing 94kg at the time. I have not taken a photo of the base as I've still got a layer of LF on. It is in race ready shape if anyone wants to come and look at it I'm happy to scrape and brush it out. I'm looking for $800 USD for this let me no if you have any questions. Hear is my site just to show I'm not a random http://www.duncancampbell.nz/?m=0 . And I'm based in Silverthorne CO if anyone wants to come have a look Thanks
  23. I don't really have the tech or the time to shoot other people, and in any case I have this huge ego problem, so here' s a selfie video from Carving Masters. I think there may have been other people there too, but I managed to edit them all out I think. <iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/94756838?byline=0&portrait=0" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href=" ">Sölden 2014</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/philwi">phil wigglesworth</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p> <p>Sölden 2014, closing weekend. 1 minute 24 seconds of your life you'll not get back.</p>
  24. Looking for some advice here. I noticed during the olympics that the state of carving boards has moved on from when I bought my last board, and I'm considering upgrading. I'm looking for some guidance as to whether or not how I'm thinking about it makes sense. Present Situation: I have a 2006 F2 Silberpfeil with TD3 bindings plus I have a 2000 Prior all mountain (detuned carving) board with TD1 bindings. I'm 5'7" and about 150lbs. Both boards are in the 156 - 158 range (I forget exactly which is which). I have been riding since late 80's, carving on a hard boot set up since early 90's, and am pretty good but by no means expert. I don't live near the mountains, so I tend to do a couple of trips a year. I like to carve, but often ride when there are others about so I tend to make lots of tight turns instead of super high speed GS turns. I also ride with a lot of skiers so I sometimes go anywhere including over the odd mogul or two. But clearly on the carving board, I am optimising for carving. I have no intention of racing; however, I ride a race spec motorcycle and never intend to race motorcycles either :D Potential upgrade: I'm really intrigued by everything I read about the Kessler KST with the plate system and I'm thinking of upgrading my F2 board. For my weight, the bomber website recommend the 156cm board (55-75kg). This smaller length fits my secondary use case of all mountain cruising even if it detracts from high speed carving. My logic for considering the upgrade is that the technology has really changed since 2006, and I believe on the new setup, I'd be able to carve easier, enjoy the improved edge grip and shock absorber effect provided by the plate system (my older knees in particular could enjoy the shock absorption), and yet still be able to do what I presently do on the F2. So what do you think? Make sense? Am I missing something? Should I be thinking about something else? TIA! Sidenote: The other board that has caught my attention is the Donek FC Metal 163, but it seems less different than my F2 and so maybe less worthwhile and maybe not as good as the kessler.
  25. I'm pretty new to the SBX community and was wondering how you chose the size of SBX specific board like Kessler, SG, or Oxess? I've been using a 162 all mountain board for the past 2 years and want to make a major upgrade. I'm 5'10" and about 180 lbs. Any suggestions on size? Thanks!
