Skiers looking to improve their form and skiing technique might be interested in a new piece of hardware in the form of a ski smart monitor that has been inspired by Olympic technology called Carv.
Carv clips to your ski boot and monitors the motion of your skiing to help provide real-time coaching as well as providing you with technical analysis, freestyle tracking, drills and lessons and ability to compete with friends and record your runs.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about Carv, its features, inspiration and design from its creators. Who have taken to Kickstarter to raise $50,000 in funding to help manufacture Carv for the masses.
Carv is the first wearable technology dedicated to skiing that speaks to you as you ski – it’s your digital ski coach. Inspired by Olympic technology, Carv gives you access to the feedback and knowledge that only elite skiers have had access to so far. With an extremely thin smart insert, Carv measures your motion and pressure distribution and relays feedback through your earphones in real-time.
Carv connects wirelessly to your smartphone to give simple, actionable feedback to casual skiers and detailed metrics and analysis for advanced and professional skiers. Carv lets you train, compete and challenge people with its detailed metrics and helps you improve your skiing with technique analysis.
Become a better, smoother and faster skier. Ski position and pressure are two essential components of skiing. For every turn you make Carv analyses when, where and how much pressure you apply. Carv then speaks to you to correct your form in real-time on the slopes and later provides in-depth run analysis in the app.
