Sneak peek at the 2011/2012 Kneissl Alpine Collection - Page 2

post #31 of 38

I read  the Kneissl group had file for insolvency due to the delay of cash infusion by the Saudi investor Mohamed al-Jaber, but that negotiations with creditors may allow the investment to continue.  Any news on this? I have heard good thngs about the quality of the product so far.

Well, if the OP wants any business from Epic, he should get on the hook with Rich Saudi Guy, and tell him that announcements like this are not helpful to insuring a return on his investment. I was PM-ing about a couple of the models, trying to find out about demos, now nonono2.gif

But seriously, what does the bankruptcy filing do to the plans to bring these to market?


To be honest, I don't know as bankruptcy proceedings are different in Austria than they are over here and I'm hoping that they have a plan and can either find the funding / investors they need.  From my perspective over here, they are still shipping product and we are moving forward until we hear otherwise.

I ski in Italy in the Dolomites. I am 170 cmts tall. I´m a  instructor. Skier since 1983. Weight 73 kilos.

 

I ski very agressively mixin short turns with longs and speed. Mostly piste. I prefer strong skis...

 

Any advice to buy a pair of the new range?

 

THanks, friend

Update on bankruptcy proceedings:  Kneissl has presented a refinancing plan to the receiver (bankruptcy trustee) that has been accepted and we now await a decision by the major creditors who of course need to buy off on the plan.  

 

Assuming that is the case, Kneissl will be manufacturing all of the skis presented in this thread, and it's our intent to of course bring in the line focusing on the skis that we think will do best in the US market.  We hope to have some 2011/2012 demos available within the next 30 days and will invite any and all Epic members who want to ski this summer to a demo weekend at Timberline, Oregon.

 

Perico:

 

Kneissl excel on piste, and any of their carving skis (Red Star, Silver Star, White Star) would probably be a great choice for you.  On the other hand, I'd encourage you to try the new Ride Star, as we believe it to be a combination of Kneissl quality construction with an updated profile that should really rock!

 

Stay tuned!!

 

Mike

No problem!

post #38 of 38

I am looking to replace my 08-09 177cm Volkl AC50's which I ski primarily in Killington, Vt in a mix of conditions  - groomers, powder, trees, crud, moguls and hard pack/ice. I'm 6', 230 lbs, level 8-9. The 182 cm Ride Stars appear to be a good candidate. Can you compare to the Volkl's for the mix of conditions described ?
