Not only does it turn heads, but it can deliver a potent workout in only a few minutes.

Their genesis product, monkii bars minimalist, looks like it could be found in a modern museum, with its blued hard maple grips under a flawless clear coat, polished aerospace-grade aluminum accents, and bright colored plugs; giving the product a look that begs to be picked up and showed off. Not only does it turn heads, but it can deliver a potent workout in only a few minutes.

As if that product was not enough, their flagship product, monkii bars 2, takes design, quality, and function to a new level. There is literally no other exercise product on the market that can compete.

When asked about the design of monkii bars 2, David Hunt, Chief Adventure Officer at MONKII said, “We designed monkii bars 2 from the ground up to be used while traveling, at home, or even outside. It really can be used to work out anywhere.” He went on to say, “the design is paramount, but quality and manufacturing in the USA is equally important to us.”

Talking about the secrets of manufacturing a high-quality product stateside, Jared Arp, Chief Napkin Sketcher at MONKII said “You have to be clever enough to design a part specifically to fit a manufacturer’s processes and equipment, not only does this produce a superior quality product, but can even compete with pricing from Asia.” For example, the monkii team manufactures the machined aluminum grips with a family-owned shop in Wisconsin, where they have perfected high production lathe parts over 3 generations. All of their other components are similarly sourced and produced by craftsmen around the US.

The MONKII team cut no corners on materials or the design. Every component is not only beautiful, but is compact and highly functional. For example, the sleek carrying case is also a door attachment. The dual-layer powder coated grips are bright, fun, and feel awesome in your hands. The drop forged aluminum buckles make adjusting the product a breeze. They even used climbing-grade webbing to give you hyper-responsive feedback during workout movements. The list goes on and on.

It’s genuinely refreshing to see how MONKII is transforming fitness with their fun, lighthearted approach to such a serious and stale industry.
