How do you pronounce "Qu-ax"?

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 that read like this:

Hello, Qu-ax…
I asked a question on 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:

Hi Phil,
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.
