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.
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.
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.

Up for sale is a race-ready Kessler SL 162cm
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.

Up for sale is a race-ready Kessler GS 185
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.
185 Kessler GS (Red top sheet) + Apex plate + Bomber Trench Digger 3 Bindings
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
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.
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.
