Does Kinesis have US and International Resellers?
Kinesis has a network of resellers throughout the world. Please note all purchases through a reseller are subject to their terms and conditions. If you have questions about Reseller return policies and order processing, please make sure to address these prior to placing your order.

To see a list of all US and International Resellers please click here. For International customers, we STRONGLY urge you purchase through a Reseller in your country. Kinesis Resellers in the US are not permitted to sell internationally.

International orders placed directly with Kinesis are subject to brokerage fees, duties, taxes, and/or tariffs which will be assessed by the shipper and your local customs office once the package reaches your country. It is much more cost effective to place your order through one of our International Resellers.

Kinesis does not provide any warranty on these third-party products, but these products have warranties provided by their respective manufacturers. Please review the included product literature and contact the respective manufacturer directly at evoluent.com and cirque.com for warranty claims.
