Monique-1 Mono Ski


  • Due to high demand the current Monique lead time is 5-10 weeks. Please contact us if you have any questions!

    Now entering its second season, the Monique-1 has begun to prove itself as the ultimate learning monoski!

    The Monique was designed to ease the steep learning curve associated with learning how to monoski. The Monique bridges the gap between novice and upper echelon sit-skis by increasing stability and forgiveness. Unlike most monos, the Monique has a low center of gravity which promotes a slower transition from edge to edge and is forgiving to form flaws. Riding at under a foot off the ground, it sits 3-6" lower than most monos on the market. Although it is a great learning tool, it has the capability to leave the greens behind!

    The Monique implements several interchangeable features from the Dynamique like seats, footrests and springs to ensure it is versatile and familiar for programs. Just like the Dynamique, the Monique can be quickly and easily adjusted to accommodate everyone from kids to adults.

     

    • Low Center of Gravity: Sitting under 12" off the ground the Monique is 3-6" lower than most modern mono skis providing a stable and forgiving learning platform.
    • Suspension: A progressive linkage driven suspension provides supple initial travel and ramps up to provide extra bottom out support. We use 4” of travel to maintain a low center of gravity while still providing enough guts to explore the mountain. 
    • Loading the Chair Lift: The Monique uses the Dynamique's familiar and proven tension-ed load system that allows the skier to "sit down" on the chair. This makes loading and unloading very smooth. By moving the load components into the upper frame, we lowered unsprung weight, eliminated cables and better protected the system from snow and ice.
    • Sitting on the Chair Lift: The Monique moves the shock out of the chair's way allowing the skier to sit all the way back against the chairlift. The rear frame triangle naturally leans the skier back eliminating any “teter” sensation. The industry’s largest skid plate further adds to the feeling of comfort.
    • Versatile Sizing: Only one frame size is needed to fit riders from 4'1” to 6’3”.
    • Footrest: The Monique uses the familiar Dynamique footrest in Adult, Junior & Child sizes. The ankle angle is quickly adjustable with quick release clamps. The length is adjusted along the horizontal axis. Smaller skiers maintain a low center of gravity and taller skiers do not have to worry about the footrest bucketing out.
    • Fore/Aft Adjustment: 3" of center gravity adjustment can be achieved through a slot at the boot.
    • Boot: A 325mm BSL (Boot Sole Length) aligns with the RESNA suggestion and is similar in size to many mono skis on the market.
    • Seat Dump: Seat dump is adjustable to 4 positions. The lowest position is flatter than any monoski currently on the market while the upper positions bring you within traditional range for most mono-skis.
    • Frame Style: The Monique is available in a low frame for independent skiers or as a high frame with short handle and aid points for skiers who need additional support.

     

  • The narrower 83mm Monster allows for simpler turn initiation and a quick transition from edge to edge making it a good groomer ski.

    The 88mm Monster has a wider profile for stability and increased flotation. The 88 is a versatile option that can maneuver through trees, charge through crud and still hold and edge on groomers.

    The lengths are from tip to tail of each ski. Shorter skis turn tighter and are easier to control, but will not float or be as stable at high speeds as a longer ski. Longer skis will allow you to go faster, but some quick turning ability is sacrificed. 

     

  • The Monique has a user weight limit of 250 lbs and is covered under our Adaptive Skiing Equipment Warranty. While similar to other sit skis, several key features make it unique. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the manuals before use. We are in the process of revamping our manuals, if you do not see something you are looking for please contact us
