Handmade in Switzerland and designed by Hansjurg Kessler, the Kessler Cross is a specialised boarder cross snowboard specifically designed for winning races. The race winning pedigree has been proven countless times. The Boarder-x winner at the Vancouver X-Games was riding one of these beasts.
Kessler have 3 snowboards in their range – an Alpine race board (The Alpine), a boardercross race board (The Cross) and The Kessler Ride. Designed by the legendary Hansjurg Kessler and hand made in Switzerland, Kessler snowboards were the first in the world to enable full-blown power riding without compromising effortless handling and total control. The philosophy is simple: make a fast snowboard using the very latest and best high tech materials but make it easy to ride because only when you are in total control of your snowboard will you be able to ride fast. This is why so many winning racers ride Kessler. When discussing the design philosophy with Hansjurg, he claimed the boards are so easy to ride they can be ridden by a beginner.
One of the most innovative features on the Kessler boards is the use of their Hybrid camber profile. This profile is very similar to a traditional 'positive camber' profile, but features a reverse camber section in the nose and tail, which engage when the board is loaded. This means that you are getting the energetic, lively, and powerful benefits of traditional camber, but the catch free, floaty feel of a reverse camber when you want your snowboard to be more versatile.
Kessler specialise in hand built snowboards so, if you would like a custom board hand built to your own specifications, please contact us. Custom prices come in at around €1,200 depending on your specific requirements.
