Does anyone know what is going on with Kneissl? Are they getting out of the Flexon boot business? Out of the North American market or out of business altogether?

Thanks. I did. That thread was exactly what started me wondering what is going on with Kneissl-their skis as well as boots. I know that KDR the USA distributor recently failed. I understand that Roces in the USA is now distributing Raichle nee Kneissl Flexon boots.
In the thread you refer to there was a reference that Dabello may be manufacturing a Flexon boot together with the reference that the patent on the Flexon tongue had expired. This caused me to wonder exactly what boot we are talking about. A Flexon or THE Flexon.
What about their storied White Star and Red Star skis? Are Kneissl skis still around in the USA/Canada? Will they be next season? Or has another ski manufacturer bitten the dust?
