As its been said , if its too good to be true chances are It Is!
Rumour has it they are still running as a buisness, with the hopes of selling it as a buisness, so you should see the bindings. As far as Karma goes Cupolo's had not only been screwing over online consumers, they where screwing over the enire industry in Canada and the US.
I work in the industry and for example at the Toronto Ski show a couple of years ago, hey went in and sold current season stock, below cost....Why who knows? But it really doesn't shock me that they went bankrupt.
I know that Atomic and K2 really lost big on this deal and are probally set to lose a couple $100k's, and not to mention a lo of he reps probally won't get paid.
