    Mono really does look fun. As a personal project was hoping to construct an attachment system for regular fat touring skis to make a mono for the down.

    Any chance you have a Split Mono prototype in the works?

    Rocker tip with tip extender option for the bottomless/super deep days.

    Just sayin'.

    Sorry, no split at the moment. May be later.
    And NEVER rocker, I hate that... Loose on slope many more than it wins in powder, and traditional camber works perfectly in powder. Just need a bit of speed.

    Each year I laugh reading the introduction of new ski model, where I can always see that "rocker has been a bit reduced". Rocker is very nice, and better again when it's reduced...

    Regarding tip rocker; are you speaking specifically about mono skis or about the entire spectrum of downhill sliding implements for feet?

    If you're making a general statement, I would venture a guess that the entire heliskiing industry and backcountry touring populous of North America may disagree with you. In my humble opinion.

    Hey were you at Heavenly in mid April with a huge pack of monoskiers doing bumps? With a strap around your knees? Some White Knuckle people? There was a Frenchman visiting.
    Huge pack meaning more than 3 or 4.
    Hilariously fun day.

    I am speaking about all boards sliding on ski: ski, snowboard, monoski,...
    I know that rocker is fashion, but fashion is not always true... My humble opinion is that this s***t has been invented when because of freestyle fashion everybody has moved bindings forward, even if it's completely stupid out of freestyle. And because of this boards didn't get out in powder.

    Heliski and backcountry existed before rocker, because a classic camber works perfectly in powder if you put bindings at good place, not too forward...

    Hey Fred, is this fashion or function? I've been intrigued since I saw this (glacier3000, suisse)

    Sorry, I don't want to talk about other brands...

    The only think I can say is that the main rider on my video (red and orange clothes) bought a Coda this winter. And he told me "on your boards I felt right at once, and on my coda I have a very bad feeling".

    Maybe he is alone in that case, but I don't think so...

    Did Chad mount it? Was it his bamboo core? Mustache camber Phoenix?

    Can you be more specific on "I have a very bad feeling"? Just curious.

    I new I had too much opened my big mouth... To be more specific, he couldn't ride it! I don't know which model, but it had the same enormous swallow than the one on photo, and the same cable between the 2 back parts. That seems to be a very strange idea in my opinion...
    So I don't want to say more, maybe there are many people who like these boards and have serious reasons for this. But my personal goal is to make boards effective but easy as well, and that nobody can't ride .

    Oh, the horror!

    Did somebody fuck up your monoski spam thread with a photo of some other monoski?

    sacre bleu! What a bunch of American fuck knuckles! Have we no monoski-spam etiquette? Where is that link to Le Alpinezone when we need it?

    Sorry, I don't understand very well all you say, too american for a french guy...
    Nobody fucked my monoskis, and I don't want to fuck the other brands. But I did mine to be better than the other, so it's not easy for me. I shouldn't have talked about Coda.
    I try to apologize saying White Kuckled seem to be not bad at all, and nearer to mine than Coda. But at the end it's up to user to say which one they like more, not to me.

    Fine, serious answer will be serious:

    Here’s what you say if you’re confident in your product: :
    The other one is [describe traits], ours is different because [describe traits] and we think it’s better for [describe target demographic]. Try them both and you’ll see ours outperform the other.

    What isn’t sensible is refusing to acknowledge or discuss competitors...because if you just won’t acknowledge or discuss a competitor at all, to me, that just seems like you have no real detailed reason why you’re better so you’re unwilling to even allow that discussion.

    So yeah, users will decide, but that shouldn’t be any reason for you not to share your knowledge of what’s different about your product and why.

    Need more vid of monoskiers shredding: zipper lines, steep/techie corn/powder, and deep powder. In the 90’s, I spent a memorial day weekend skiing the top of mammoth on a monoski. Lots of hop and hope. Super fun.
