Any News on the Mystic Stealth Harness?

Postby tizzleberg » Mon Apr 06, 2020 7:44 pm

Hello,
after the new Mystic Collection dropped today and their new Stealth Harness is nowhere to be found I was wondering if anyone knows when that is going to be released?

Thanks

I heard from our local dealer that they (vendors) are trying to stop deliveries of the new 2020/2021 equipment to their stores, to not have too much fixed capital, which I can totally understand. Here in Germany Mystic was about to deliver the new stuff this week.

ThiesQ, not sure about that. Mystic pays to have the stuff made at their contracted factories regardless of where the product is after it's left the factory. It doesn't matter if it is in a Mystic warehouse or the retail store. They've already paid for it. Here is the USA, the incentive would be to get it to retailer as fast as possible so Mystic can get paid by the retailer. Even on credit terms with Mystic, the clock starts when the product arrives at the retailer, so the sooner the better. Maybe it's not that way elsewhere. I don't know.

As a Mystic dealer I was told about 5 weeks ago that the Stealth harness was delayed due to production in China having been delayed.

Hi Stafford,

maybe a miscommunication. My idea is: why should you as retailer/kiteshop (I stated vendor above) pay Mystic for new 2020 harnesses, which lay around in your shop which is probably closed, with beaches closed and no customers to buy your stuff. That is just dead capital in my eyes.

After reaching out to them on Instagram I was sold that they are "launching it later, probably in June".
So i will keep waiting. Cant kite now anyways.

I'd guess Mystic is having delays due to the pandemic, whether it be getting the final prototype dialed in for production, production itself, or other logistical issues, things will be delayed.

Thanks for the interest everyone. I work for Mystic in the USA and will answer questions as best I can. The Stealth harness is a new model for Summer 2020. The development of this harness began last summer and the hope was to have it ready for delivery this April. There have indeed been some delays in production due to Covid. I don't have an exact delivery date for USA at this point but barring the unexpected I'll call it late Spring.

Most of the info about the harness is in the video from KB.com but I'll add that I've had an early production sample harness since August and I absolutely love this harness. It absolutely feel super light and (at least prior to my Covid isolation diet regime) fits me awesome.
This harness will be at a premium price point.
MSRP (shell only) $399
