Winter is coming! Prepare yourselves with Monon Longboard Company’s new Dire Wolf. Built with downhill and freeride in mind, the Dire Wolf is available in limited quantities featuring artwork from Ivana Mendenhall.
The brain child of their team manager, Thomas Mendenhall and lead designer, Daniel Jimenez, this board combines everything you love for going fast and sideways. It’s features bowl concave with a 1/4″ microdrop, rocker and flared wheel wells. All this comes together to create a foot pocket that will never leave you guessing where to stand.
It measures 39″ long counting the kick and tapers from 9.5″ wide to 9.25″ out back. These specs combined with the optimal 24 – 27.5″ wheelbase options make this a force to be reckoned with. Like all of Monon’s line up, the Dire Wolf is hand shaped to order, giving each board character and a unique feel. Construction features 9 layers of Great Lakes maple that creates a rock solid platform. It will take a beating and stand up amazingly well against the elements.
Monon has a very limited number of these available. Hit the link to pick one up and get shredding.
Sadly, Monon made the decision to shut down in 2018. They had a great 5-year run! Snag a board if you come across them, they’re a welcome rare sight. Best of luck to the team and we hope they stay part of the longboard community indefinitely.
