    Hi,


    Thanks for your suggestion!


    I don't necessarily prefer Kessler... I'm just trying to understand the right board for me!


    Kessler would be definitely the most different board from what I have now and of course really good as a SB carving machine (although, maybe too stiff?)... but as dynamike82 suggested, given my body specs (180cm 70Kg) Virus could be better since less aggressive.


    The only concern is that with the Virus I might not ride my Jones anymore ahah!

    Hi Dynamike,


    Great! Thanks for your opinion!

    So I’m starting to realize that either two would do a great job for the purpose! I’m might still lean more for the Kessler to have a more different board from what I already have! But any of the two would be great anyway.


    Given the price, now it’s just a matter to find a good second hand occasion!

    Does anyone want to get rid of one of those boards (in good conditions)? :)

    OK thanks! Yes I know that those boards are usually really good for SB carving!

    I guess since you're on HB only you didn't compare Virus and Kessler for the model I mentioned above, right?


    Regarding the sidecut radius, yes I know the consequences of a too big one... however I see the e.g. Kessler has something between 8-11m and the Korua Bullet around 10m, so quite similar I guess and not tooooo extreme. Not sure about the Virus because specs are not so easy to find.

    Hi Wulf,


    Thanks! I know the Bullet Train but I couldn't find any proper review around yet...


    I wanted to go for Kessler or Virus to try out also this more niche brands which I've never had the chance to ride. Since I'm looking for something really carving-only I thought about sticking to brands that are specialised in alpine boards.

    Do you have any experience with the Korua Bullet Train?

    Hi there,


    I'm wondering if someone has experience and opinion comparing the Kessler the Cross with the Virus Avalanche AFT.


    I'm considering buying one of these two as soft boot carving only board.

    For freeride purpose I have a Jones Flagship an for cruising more-fun carving board I have a Korua Shape Pencil.


    I am looking for something that could bring me closer to an alpine board without going hard boot, especially on edge hold! So the purpose of the board is basically carving only.


    I have about 15 years experience and for a couple of years I was on hard boot, so I have decent carving skills.

    I'm considering these boards because besides of the excellent board quality, also because aesthetically are pretty cool ;)

    Thanks in advance!!
