Regarding the pronunciation of Qu-ax, I posted the same question earlier this year. The entire thread is at:
But the salient part comes at the end of the thread. Here it is:
A-HA!!! The answer! The answer we’ve all been waiting for, straight from Qu-ax as to how to pronounce their name!!!
I had sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that read like this:
I asked a question on unicyclist.com about how to pronounce the name of your company. Many people had many different opinions!!
Could you please spell out the pronunciation of “Qu-ax”? Is it listed below?
Or is it something else? All of the unicycling community awaits your answer! Please respond immediately.
And here’s the response I just received:
you can pronounce as you want, we understand you.
English would be the first version , the Germans prefer the last one.
Importand would be , that you like our unicycles.
So the English version is “Cue-Aks” and the Germans say “Kwaks”.
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the mystery is solved!! Now go buy those quacking unicycles!!
Hope this helps.
