  2. Kessler 'The Ride' 163 - Good Condition The top and edges are in great condition. The base has some minor scratches and one repair (see pictures). Information from Kessler: Based on decades of experience spent customizing boards for the world's top snowboarders, we have created the perfect all-mountain solution with only the top materials that can meet the demands of all-mountain snowboarding.

  3. Kid broke his junk board.. Need another Kessler 162 stock board... anyone have one they are upgrading out of or just don't use? Good edge is needed but if the ptex has damage its fine as it is will replace his early season bad snow trainer he broke.
  4. 156 Kessler SL Alpine, 19cm waist, ptex top $550 shipped (lower 48 US) (will ship elsewhere if buyer pays the difference) This is a 2013-14 custom board (serial #12166). Used as a back-up board, not raced. Maybe a total of 15 days of riding on it. It's virtually a new board. There are a couple of very shallow gouges in the base that will likely disappear with a base grind. Plenty of edge left. Comes with F2 edge/base protection sleeve.
  5. F2 Speedster World Cup SL 158. Excellent condition. $650 Kessler Alpine 171. Great condition. $600 Both boards have no damage to the base and have always been properly stored and cared for. They have both only been base ground once. Some minor scratches on top sheet of Kessler due to lift lines of course. UPZ RC10 boots. Like new condition. Size 24.5. $200 Deeluxe Track 225 boots. Heel and toe springs included. Bought and tried for a season, too big. Excellent condition. Size 26. $200 I would consider negotiating prices. Please text me. 608 658 three one one eight. Located in Madison, WI.
  6. Make me a reasonable offer. Plate is Iron Rock Stiff, used once, board is beautiful.
  7. SOLD Outstanding board, used about 15 days. Selling because it's a little too close to my latest custom 180, and the wife says I need to clean out the closet! 10-14m KST sidecut. 20.5cm waist. 48-58cm stance width range. Similar turn shape as a 168, just 2m longer radius range, and 6cm longer length. That is to say, this is not a straight-tail racer, but a great freecarver that will finish the turn. Very exciting ride. Swiss hand-made for me at 185lbs in May 2018. Factory thumbprint base grind. Factory edge bevels at 2 side, 0.8 base. Base has not been ground, edges have only been touched up with a diamond stone. Will wax before shipping. Superficial base scratches only. P-tex topsheet condition is very good. No damage. I have about $1800 into it after import tax and shipping. Letting go for $1250 shipped to the 48 states. I will pay the first $50 for shipping elsewhere. Satisfaction guaranteed.
  8. Kessler World Cup K-Plate wanted.
  9. SOLD. Selling a used 180cm x 20cm Kessler "The Alpine" Used for one season, but I can't ride anymore due to work and a knee injury. Hoping it goes to someone who can put it to good use. Can be ridden left foot forward (regular) or right foot forward (goofy) Asking $700 or best offer.
  10. SOLD Up for sale is a Kessler Alpine 185 white: Stock - not custom, 4x2, UPM. Swiss Made. Superb condition. Originally purchased new in 2018. I purchased it last year previous sale post from @rjnakata and put 8 days on racing. The board only has about 12-15- days on it total. Has the new stranded textured topsheet near perfect. Base/edges near perfect. Listed weight range is 75-100kg (165-220lbs) and turns well for my 185 lbs. 20.2 waist. This is a fun board, stable and calm, smooth at speed with large and small turn radii. Kessler specs Reason for sale: Was hoping to get some faster times by upgrading from a 180 Kessler to the 185, but the reality is that the course I race on only has a few courses set in a season where the 185 would work and I just can't justify keeping it for 2 races a season. Asking $750 buyer pays shipping. Payment via PayPal -Geoff
  11. Up for sale is a race-ready Kessler SL 162cm 20cm wide 50cm stance width, UPM mounts as well Condition is nearly new. It's only been ridden a few times and I'm selling because it is simply to stiff for me at 155lbs and my infrequent riding these day. It probably rides great at 180-220lbs. Some scuffing from a VIST plate but otherwise both the top and base are in excellent shape (base wax on there now). Edges are razor sharp and have all of their life left. SOLD!
  12. Up for sale is a race-ready Kessler GS 185 20cm wide 50cm stance width, UPM and Vist center mounts as well Condition is nearly new. It's only been ridden a few times and I'm selling because it is simply to stiff for me at 155lbs and my infrequent riding these day. It probably rides great at 180-220lbs. Small scuffs from a plate and some lift rash but otherwise both the top and base are in great shape (base wax on there now). Edges are razor sharp and have all of their life left. Sold!
  13. 185 Kessler GS (Red top sheet) + Apex plate + Bomber Trench Digger 3 Bindings Hey Guys! I am selling my 185 Kessler (red top sheet) with an Apex plate (UPM Mount) and Bomber TD3 bindings. This setup holds an edge through anything - I mean literally anything. This setup is definitely more on the aggressive side. I had this Kessler custom made for my height and weight. I am 5' 11" and weigh around 170 lbs. Overall, I've taken pretty good care of the board. There are no deep base scratches; however, I would recommend a base grind to get it nice clean again. Asking: ~ $1750 Happy Carving! FAQ ----- How long did you ride on this board for? I rode this setup as my primary GS board for two seasons. Why are you getting rid of the board? I used to race in USSA and USASA competitions but no longer compete. I don't get a chance to get out on this board as much as I used to. I would love it to go to a new owner who can enjoy it more than I can. Will you sell plate, board, bindings separately? Ideally, I would like to sell the entire setup at once; however, I am willing to negotiate.
  14. 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. BOARD IS SOLD
  15. 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: $OLD 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
  16. I am a young rider getting into alpine, i have a 170 prior WCR right now. I would like to get a Kessler for GS, since my prior has an 11m radius which is a bit small for GS. Any offers, just message me!!

  20. 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!

  22. 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?....

  24. 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.

Ambitious carvers love the THE ALPINE!
