Keyport Slide 4.0 LE1 Update #2
Our beta testers have been putting the 4.0 Slides through their paces and will be posting reviews on the Slide 4.0 LE1 - Titanium and Slide 4.0 LE1 - Aluminum about their experiences this week, with some reviews already posted. Based upon their initial feedback and follow up discussions, we are excited to report that we are moving full speed ahead and that all production parts are well underway. We are very grateful to our beta testers for a thorough and thoughtful job.
Batch 1 - All pre-orders placed by 2/5
The factory is working feverishly to makes the final tweaks based upon the early feedback and ship them to us for QC and fulfillment. Unfortunately, not all of the Batch 1 production units will be shipping together as our manufacturer needs additional time to complete the run.
We will be receiving a partial shipment of Batch 1 units around the second week of June (shipping from our manufacturer at the end of this week).
How will we be selecting who gets the first units?
We will announce the plan next week. Stay tuned!
The remainder of Batch 1 will go out as soon as we receive the follow up shipment from our vendor and complete the necessary QC and packaging. We expect to continue shipping Batch 1 around the second week of July.
Batches 2 and 3 will follow shortly thereafter as our manufacturer will continue production without delay. We are confident we can cut a week off each subsequent batch production time.
Batch 2 - All pre-orders placed between 2/6 and 3/31
We estimate Batch 2 to ship approximately 2 - 3 weeks after Batch 1. We were able to shorten the gap between the two batches a bit.
As it stands right now, this will put fulfillment around the end of July through the beginning of August.
Batch 3 - All pre-orders placed between 4/1 and 5/31
We estimate Batch 3 to ship approximately 2 - 3 weeks after Batch 2. We were able to shorten the gap between the two batches a bit.
As it stands right now, this will put fulfillment around mid-August through the end of August.
Batch 4 - All pre-orders placed after 5/31
We estimate Batch 4 to ship approximately 2 weeks after Batch 3. We were able to shorten the gap between the two batches a bit.
So, as of right now, we are looking at a late August through early September fulfillment timeframe.
A Little Surprise for You
Based upon your feedback and requests, we are in the process of creating a limited run of Blackout Kits compatible with both the Aluminum and Titanium Slides. It consists of the following:
- Black PVD Bezel
- Black PVD Link (Detachable D-Ring)
- 4 Black PVD Stainless Nodes w/Black, White, Red, and Blue color identifiers
The only two blackout kits in existence right now
The cost of the kit will be $29.
For Titanium owners, there will be an Optional Black Screw Set + Torx Bit for $6.99.
Blackout Kits will ship separately from pre-orders.
As a thank you for your continued patience, all Batch 1 pre-orders will get 24 hr early access as soon as Batches 1 - 4 are fulfilled. Since the Blackout Kit will not be shipping with your current pre-order, ALL U.S. Blackout Kit orders will receive FREE shipping.
Batch 3 Closing on 5/31
We will be closing Batch 3 on 5/31 and increasing prices shortly thereafter. We expect Batch 4 to deliver approximately 2 weeks after Batch 3.
