Kneissl Flexon Pro T

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is it just me or are Flexon Pro T's impossible to find? Can anyone give me an update on where I can purchase a pair. My feet great a size and half 3 years ago and I had to get rid of my Raichle Thermo Flexons.

Thanks

I bought my Flexons from Scott Strand at Snowbird a few years ago- he is a big Flexon fan, and would probably know where to get them in SLC. I was told that Kneissl is importing them to the US again. Top level on the plaza at snowbird in the back of the ski shop.

I contacted Roces USA (now distributing Flexon in the U.S.), and they responded within a couple of days telling me which shops in my region carried them.

Get out the duct tape and keep the old ones for a while longer. The next generation of Flexon's will start showing up after the first of the year. not by Raichle or Kneissl. The shell will be the same with the best liner the boot ever had and a different buckle system. As I know more I will post it. My feet can not wait as my old ones are totally trashed.

Cool site! Will they have wheels?

This will be the third time they tried to "reinvent" the Flexon. : . Why mess with perfection? :

Hey Phil, I figured you would chime in on this. These are actually the real thing. Dalbello has been working on this project for a couple of years. The patent has expired for the flexon type tounge. They have had a three piece shell for a number of years. My understanding is that one of the Raichle designers from the Swiss days is in house at Dalbello and the old lower molds are there now also. I have not seen the prototype bur maybe some of the east coast skiers will be spoting some on the slopes soon.
Dalbello has a great history with Raichle as they produced all of the Italian made Raichle's in the past.(80's and early 90's) I guess until they are on our feet we will not know for sure.

I know Plake skied Flexons for years, Maybe this is one of the reasons why he went over to Dalbello. But I am being real sceptical here, I will belive it when I ski it.

Have you found these yet? I bought a pair last year from a shop in BC that mailed them to me. If need be, I'll dig up the shop name and the guy I dealt with. He was very easy to deal with and if I remember correctly, the price was decent too.

I've checked at shops around SLC and most of them aren't holding out much hope that they'll get any in this year due to distribution problems. (Which makes me think it might be a nationwide problem) If you know your size you might be better off mail ordering from someone who has leftovers from last year.
