do you have the dimensions for these boards ? I like your model and the GS.
the only grief i had with the kebbek slalom boards was that i found them a little heavy for my taste did you make them lighter this time around ?

Nice Boards!

Post by Eric Brammer » Fri Jun 24, 2005 6:35 pm

Pierre, did Claude re-shape the tail? It looks a bit different than what I recall from last season's Gathering.
In dimensions, etc., veiws from different angles would be great, as to see the camber/concave, as that tends to be where boards get their 'feel', both in terms of flex response, and shaping underfoot. I hate buying into something 'blind' from online.

Mr. Ritschard, keep in mind that Weight going Downhill isn't a BAD thing! Some of BLR crew at Morro Bay last year actually had weights added on the G.S. boards... Hmm.?.
Also, lighter weights often mean less durability. Luckily, I've only dropped my Turner Fullnose once, and it landed on it's wheels. My Roe, I handle that with care, always.

No, his shape is exactly the same.

Here are some bad pics but they may give you a better idea of the camber and concave.
It's the setup i'll use for next weekend's race in Ottawa, 4 maple plys between 2 pys of fibreglass, it would be lighter than last year but i made my shape bigger this year, it's now
31,25" by 8.125. Wheelbase can be 19 til 20.5 with 3 options in the back and 2 in the front.

Totally true PSR, at Kebbek we prefer a little more weight that give the board a lot more durability and cost effectiveness. I'm really proud of our slalom boards now. After 3 years of riding prototypes we got them right.

Own Graphics

Post by Claude Regnier » Mon Jun 27, 2005 1:24 am

I had imput but Pierre is the Genious and artist behind the Graphic.

I, of course have to continually work out to live up to the graphic!

Pierre knows I'm a proud Canadian and modified the Hockey Logo. We own the rights now that they are on strike, LOL.
Many Happy Pumps!

Exchange rate?

Post by Marty Schaub » Sat Jul 09, 2005 1:38 am

What is the exchange rate of CDN to American $$$? Also, do you guys sell that cool shirt that you adapted from the Team Canada logo?

Have the widths of the boards changed a bit for 2006?
I just ordered a few from a dealer in Germany

Claude Regnier Pro
28.5 x 7.5"

Pierre Gravel Pro
31.125 x 7.625"

Kebbek Team GS
30" x 9

GS has no concave and a decent amount of camber, the other two have the same concave pictured above and a mild camber.

They are all very well built i must say.

Thanks for the kind words.

Our 2006 line of slalom boards has 2 new GS models for Claude and i.

My GS is 35" by 9" with wheelbases from 20.5 to 22.
My TS is 8.125 by 31, wb from 19.25 to 21".
Claude's GS is 34 by 8.25 (if i remember right)

The Team GS "Fleur de Lys" is concave too now.

GS Model

Post by Claude Regnier » Tue Jun 27, 2006 9:04 pm

Just a quick note to let you know that the Cknuck Model will have the double rear truck holes set-up pre-drilled as on the Pierre G. Model.

Wow, thanks for the quick response!
Its looks like i must have gotten some old decks then, thats a dissapointment, i love the shapes, concave, and build but the new size is better and concave would be sweet on the GS. Next year i order straight from Canada.
