Mesle Mono-Super ski

My good friend Ciro Rondalli (owner of Aquaflyer) found this gem, but we don’t know anything about it. Has anyone seen one of these before? Any info would be much appreciated 😊

    @oldjeep pretty cool, they even have a "freeride" ski. Looks like it's a German brand. What shocked me about Ciro's find is how well kept it is.

    I skied on Mesle skis in the early 70’s. As far as I know, you could only buy them in Europe. In my view, they were the best wood skis ever made, and for the time, the coolest looking. Also, the strap across the top of the foot was a leap forward in binding design.

    Paul Seaton, Willi Ellermeier and Hagen Klee were some of the name skiers for Mesle.

    I was told at the time that they were owned by Volkl Skis, but I don’t know if that’s true.

    There are two red Mesle slaloms and a cut down pair of jumpers in the center of this photo. The yellow ski with the red stripe is a Reflex.

    @lpskier you skied at frostbite? I used to love that tournament! Except when I got too close to the electric cow fence while urinating. A lesson never forgotten!
