Testimonial

The scarver monoski is the best monoski I have used! It’s strong and ridged and simple but still able to be adjusted to just about anyone. It helped me be world champion in 2017!

Your equipment range is adapted for any disability and any kind of practice. Of course you know my predilection for the Scarver, a real war machine thanks to its numerous possibilities of adjustments, its 3 kinematics, and I can’t find any world for the new Dualski base…I discovered the first frame 10 years ago and when I see the evolution today, I just want to say thank you and hats off!!!”
