Why there are some 2014 skis for Sale now

How exactly that work? Do brands choose to pre-sale delivery some models earlier byt the end of this season? Right now the Rossi Soul 7 is all over the place available to ship now... I remember seeing next season Bonafide for sale at starthaus as well, not sure if it was this year with the 13/14 for sale of last year when the 12/13 was available...

 

how that work?

Some times when a company sells out of a ski they will push the release early. Most times its for a ski that is just receiving a cosmetic change. Other times you will see some sample models and rep fleet skis hit the market in shops that have close relationship with the rep. Not very normal for a new model although it can happen just depending on what the build schedule is for the manufacturer.

Sometimes manufacturers want to create momentum. K2 was an early adaptor years ago with the first Xtreme. 2014 models that we have seen early...

 

Rossi Soul7 (new)

Nordica El Capo, Vagabond and Wildfire (all in limited sizes) (new)

Blizzard Bonafide & Cochise (to fill current demand)

 

...to name a few.

Well, the bottom half of the planet is heading into winter while the top half is heading into summer.  Strange thing that. th_dunno-1[1].gif
