Recon Jet Update: Shipping In September

recon

So you wanted to get your hands on a Recon Jet quickly? Apparently, the device won’t be shipping till September. In addition, it will go for $699 when it ships, so there is a $100 price hike. That does not affect folks who pre-ordered the device. Here is an e-mail by Dan EisenHardt, Recon’s CEO, on the subject:

It has recently become clear that to meet both goals, Jet’s ship date will need to be postponed from late spring to September 25. This is a real disappointment for all of us at Recon as it must be for those of you who hoped to have Jet in time for the summer riding season…

As a gesture of my appreciation for your loyalty and continued support, Recon is including a spare clear lens in every Jet pre-order, an accessory worth $60 to $90. I hope you enjoy the free upgrade. Also, this summer, we will be raising the retail price on Jet from $599 to $699 USD (€699 in Europe). This price increase will not affect pre-order customers with orders already in place.

I can’t say I am too disappointed with the decision. Sure, Recon Jet is not as expensive as GLASS, but I still would like a product that works great out of the box. This delay is not ideal but not the end of the world either. Let’s hope there are no more serious issues before the device ships.
