Do you have a door attachment for indoor use?
Yes, we do! Your best option is the Adventure Kit paired with monkii bars 2. The Adventure Kit converts from the carrying case into a door attachment.
For monkii bars Minimalist, the monkii branch is an ultra-portable door attachment and it can be ordered here: shop.monkiibars.com
(The monkii branch is compatible with monkii bars 2.)
Is monkii bars 2 different than TRX?
Yes. Even though both utilize your bodyweight for resistance, monkii bars 2 is actually completely different. Let’s start with portability: Roll up the Adventure Kit and take it with you; it will fit perfectly in your carry-on or other luggage. Next, versatility: Don’t need the foot straps? Take them off. Want to exercise outside? Take the Ultralight Kit (included with all versions of monkii bars 2) and find the perfect workout sanctuary. While monkii bars 2 requires more stability than other training devices, monkii bars 2 provides you with a more efficient and effective workout.
monkii bars 2 can also be used to do offset training; by setting the bars at different heights you
can further expand the possible exercises. We provide hundreds of free workouts and a comprehensive exercise video library. Nothing matters more to us than you using your bars. Finally, monkii bars 2 are 100% made in the USA from the highest quality material we can get our monkii-hands on.
These are too expensive!
You can make your own version of monkii bars for $15 using our DIY guide.
How durable is the suspension line? Can I order a replacement line?
monkii bars 2:
We scoured the globe to find the company making the premiere webbing products on the market. When we saw samples from a company in France that looked undeniably similar (ie the same) as rock climbing equipment manufactured by the big names in the industry (Black Diamond, Mammut, etc), we knew we had found our partner.
Our custom, proprietary weave incorporates a UHMW core that provides incredible strength. The unique weave pattern reveals the core, which functions as tick marks for adjustment. We’re getting strength into the thousands of pounds, with nearly zero stretch. This suspension line will be the best on the market – and only available with monkii bars 2.
monkii bars Minimalist:
The suspension line is incredibly sturdy. Spectra is used in rock climbing. So you can imagine all of the rubbing, scuffing, and scraping that occurs on the side of rock faces. We’ve had a pair of monkii bars that we’ve been using for almost a year – no fraying or wear on the Spectra line at all! It’s a really amazing fiber.
We offer a free line replacement program. Find out more details here: http://www.monkii.co/line-replacement-program/
Where are monkii bars made?
Designed in Colorado. Made in USA.
Are there age and weight restrictions?
monkii bars 2: The Age Limit is 16+. The Weight Limit is 250 pounds.
monkii bars Minimalist: The Age Limit is 16+. The Weight Limit is 220 pounds.
My monkii bars Minimalist look slightly different than the pictures on your website?
monkii bars are made of high quality components including Hard Maple. Not only does the natural wood grain vary, but we also used a natural dye to create the “dark” bars, which means that each bar turns out one-of-a-kind. That’s right, be excited to know that you have a unique set of monkii bars to call your own.
