Volkl -SuperSpeeds - Brand New 168cm -SYDNEY AUS

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Brand New (almost, I skied on them half a day, last day of the season, decided not for me, hence why I am selling them, cost me nothing, I got them on a warranty)

168cm with Marker Bindings
Flat Black in colour
Bindings Mounted on Track System, hence fully adjustable to any boot. Price: A$1400 firm
MSRP: $2400

Skis can be picked up in Sydney...or I can deliver to Newcastle, Wollongong, Canberra, Cooma, Jindabyne (or any of the places in between).

1400! Is that lera?
post #3 of 17
not that I'm a genius, but I'll assume the A in front of the $ means its Autralian dollars (combined with the places you can pick them up)
Which makes it still an expensive ski at around 1,000 american dollars.

ps. its Lira

That is pretty spendy . Makes you think of filling a boatload of skis and having a big time working holiday
A nice hard snow ski though.

yep - we have lots of hard snow down under... so you need good hard snow skis....

UNLESS... you always wake up late... then anything for skiing SLOP and water shoould get you by...

Now you know why my ski of choice was always a Stockli SLR.... I start at 830am most days

ah but is a free lesson with you worth the price paid? or does it have some value to add to the package?

I wish you all the luck Skidude, but that sure looks like full blown retail price to me. I understand you have some adverse duty taxes and shipping costs there, but I'm guessing most bears are smart enough to expect a better deal. How much more expensive is equipment "down under"?

Thats for you to decide.....if your intrested let me know, and I will give you my name to talk to Roger and/or Stephen for refrences, I know Roger reasonably well, and am good mates with Stephen.

As for the price, I just want what is fair....I don't need to dump them, if $1400 is too high....well just modify it to what is...it seemed reasonable to me based on what I saw in the shops...it is so hard to price stuff in Aus....I have seen used straight skis in Jindy going for $300!

This doesn't surprise me...one big difference in Aus is that stuff holds its value here. In North America if a ski is a year old, even if brand new, it is worth very little and shops just dump them...in Aus even if a ski is a 2005 model a shop will still sell it for the same price as a 2007....it seems Aus is really a dumping ground for last years (or the year before, and the year before) stock from the northern hemisphere....so the "super sales" don't really happen here

No make that I'll buy the fuel you buy the stores.

ok - stephen is a good guy...
I might have to add you to my list....

Sorry - not interested in Volkls atm...

Yes - you are right... in aussie skis are sold for what they think they can get... seems unrelated to prices elsewhere...
