Summary Ekta Mono suit
The Ekta suit is a rugged, lightweight Mono suit that is built to perform. The Ekta’s two-layer design uses the Sympatex® 45,000mm Membrane for superior performance. The suit is going to be your outerwear of choice for all winter adventures thanks to the attention to detail put into every aspect of the design.
From the women’s-specific fit to clever features like laser cut venting in the collar and the detachable seat, this suit is truly designed to maximize the winter experience.
Protected by the 2.0 Guarantee, the Ekta Mono Suit carries a warranty for the lifetime of the product against manufacturer and material defects.
Most monosuits are built with thin, unsupported suspenders.
Like loggers—who spend their days bending, lifting, cutting and hauling—we consider a good pair of suspenders crucial to our performance. Our custom-constructed harness is padded for comfort, have three adjustments points to keep everything in place, and have two thoughtfully-placed radio clips. The mesh panel between the shoulder blades gives you a more ergonomic fit without sacrificing breathability. Our suspenders are as rugged as the terrain we ride in.
A multi-purpose hood built for any adventure
A collar that is too tight feels constrictive. One that’s too loose can be cold. And a centered zipper under your chin can be jabbing and uncomfortable. That’s why we re-developed this zipper on this monosuit 4 times: to design a collar that every rider could customize for the combination of comfort and ventilation.
Only a product manager who rides would know to add this
Unlike most monosuits, our boot gaiters are constructed from extra tough materials that hold up against wear and tear from running boards. You’ll also find Kevlar® Armortex® blend reinforcements on the cuff, which means your pant hem will look as good on day 100 as it did on day 1.
What this suit has in common with a bulletproof vest
We added Kevlar® Armortex® blend reinforcements to the knees and inside of the legs of this suit. This material is one of those magic modern materials that people talk about without really explaining any further. Bulletproof vests are also made with Kevlar, meaning this is the best protection you can have against sharp running boards or trees. And with an added layer of protection, you won’t think twice about taking a knee to fix or maintain your machine.
Double Stitching with TOBE Spider Silk™
When it comes to complex design, the most effective solutions often present themselves in nature. Our proprietary spider silk™ stitching was inspired by, arguably, the most experienced and specialized weavers on the planet. Our factories submit each stitch to a strenuous “Tensile Test” that measures stress versus strain to ensure maximum strength so that your suit is prepared to stand up to wear, tear, and the harshest conditions.
The one tiny detail that makes this suit more waterproof
In addition to testing the fabrics we use for waterproofness, we also test the overall construction of our gear in the “rain chamber.” It’s as if we put each of our monosuits through a carwash, and it allows to optimize the design for maximum water-tightness. One such design to result from this is a modified zipper design that captures any moisture that seeps through and funnels it out a tiny drain so that it never reaches your skin. In testing, this nearly invisible feature extended this suits rain chamber rating by an hour.
Why a monosuit is only as good as its ventilation
A snowmobile’s ventilation system is crucial to the machines performance. When the engine overheats, it loses power. Our bodies work similarly—we also need the ability to cool down. So when we designed the ventilation system for this monosuit, we drew inspiration from our toys. Micro stretch panels mimic vent screens to keep rain and snow out. And we moved the vents closer to the chest so that they works optimally with backpacks.
The feature you’ll be shocked no-one’s thought of before
In the most technologically advanced age in history, most outerwear still requires us to take our phone out of our pockets. Our silicone smart-pocket is touch-friendly, helping you stay connected and communicate faster, so that you can spend less time pulling your phone out and more time having fun.
An intelligent, expandable collar
Behind the zipper, this suit is hiding a simple and elegant design feature: laser-cut vents and an expansion panel. This can be easily configured to provide more room in the collar and allow for more ventilation.
We built a better dropseat
The majority of monosuits on the market with a drop seat are constructed with an arced zipper that opens from hip to hip. We took that design one step further with a drop seat that unzips almost a full 360 degrees, making it even easier to answer nature’s call.
