Both sizes come as a complete kit, including a travel bag, hand pump, fin, leash, and a paddle.
With glide for flatwater paddling and stability to take on rougher waters, the Monarch is all about versatility.

Lots of power in a small form factor. That’s Nocqua’s claim to fame. The Power Bank is no different.

One of these gets you a full tournament day on the water of recording power.
