Creating the Le Gid ski, we wanted to impersonate the true spirit of skimountaineering. It is going to be a perfect companion for those seeking light, but trustworthy ski, that gives you full control in steep, alpine terrain. It is designed to be used by experienced skiers who venture for long hikes and technical descents in advanced terrain.
On the other hand, all skiers who start their adventure with ski touring will also find Le Gid really helpful in bringing them into the world od untracked snow and virgin slopes.
ASH AND SPRUCE WOODCORE
All MONCK skis are made from poplar and ash woodcores. The wood stringers are full length (cores are glued only vertically, never horizontally) what gives consistent, high torsionall flex. Sidewalls are made from bamboo - hard and springy wood. This allows better energy transfer to the edges resulting in better handling ski.
Black Locust sidewalls
We use wooden sidewall to guarantee the best grip of the ski on hard snow conditions. Black Locust doesn’t react with water therefore it’s the best choice! And boy, does it look great!
ISNHS Graphite Race Base
Isospeed Nano Highspeed Race is an ultra high molecular weight sintered base with the additon of graphite. Premium base material with the best gliding charactersitics and optimal durabilty. Has been used in multiple victories in World Cup and Olympic Races.
Japan Carbon Fiber
Made in Japan, woven in Germany, carbon fiber materials we use are top in the field. By using them, we created extremely springy and flexible ski. Moreover, in cooperation with best engineers we developed the most efficient usage of those fibers what allowed us to make lively, dampening and still light freeride ski.
All skis are made in SANDWICH technology. It is technology used in World Cup racing; it allows the best energy transfer to the ski edges and torsional stiffness, thus the best control of a ski on the snow.
As a topsheet on our skis we use veneer made from natural wood. Type of wood, so the final look of a ski can be chosen from many: Oak, Ash, Palisander Santos, Satin or American Wallnut, Eucaliptus and so on. Depending on the model we use either natural oil, or 3 coats of varnish.
