X RepI was the Extrem US rep for 1.5 yrs. The US distributor does not have his act together, cheated me out of commissions. He has no car, money or even business plan, does not have a clue about the industry can't even tune a ski... and has a bit of a temper. The company in Sweden is good, I meet and spent time with the production guy and owner.
Loved their boards and skis! the skis do have a de-lam issue they did work on it for 2006 helped some, but not all fixed yet.
If their was a real US distributor I would be still reping them even though the ski / snowboard industry is flat at best. Most honest retailers that I have know for years told me they are cutting back not adding new lines to their wall.
Did sell several pairs to and set up pro reps around Aspen, Vail, Jackson Hole and other areas here and their, but only 1 shop picked up our line on a trial basses and they only purchased 5 pair of skis no snowboard shop picked up the line. Also we sponsored a few good skiers and a US Snowboard team member that I put together the deal for.
In summery: If it was a stock I would short it (my bet they will not go anywhere in the US with current distributor)
