FROGGINBULLFISHthat's pretty cool.
it's not useful for the average skier but there's definitely lots of coaches/instructors/manufacturers who will want this.
RudyGarmischWe are probably the exact opposite of your target market.
motionmetricsThank you for your response, but I am curious to know why that's the case. Please do let us know!
itswillis21a lot of the people on here are exclusively into hitting rails and jumps and don't care if their skiing technique is good
KravtZWow thats pretty cool. I think it could definitely be used on a high level in racing programs, mountain schools, potentially very high level park skiers, etc.
Don't think the average person would think twice about using this honestly. I also don't think the vast majority of NS is your target audience in this. I'd target US national ski team or other programs that use a lot of science in their approach to skiing
S.J.WThis thing is fucking sick. I'd buy one in a heart beat if it also worked with powder skiing or mogul skiing.
DBack1321I think it would be cool to use and I would use it, but that's totally dependent on price point. I don't think something like that would be cheap. Most rec skiers (go one family trips a couple times a year, groomer cruisers) are the majority of skiers at resorts and they probably wouldn't buy this unless they're rich.
Your target should be instructors, coaches, mountain schools, etc not the individual skier in my opinion.In that market, your idea will probably be really profitable.
elcornholioThis seems like it could be used to prevent injury, for instance, finding out how to avoid landing in a way that could cause knee damage. It could also show from the given movement on landing if you're in danger of injury.
gnar_whal^^spend a bit of time on here and you'll know why. I would head over to tgr if I were you http://www.tetongravity.com
cool idea tho
californiagrownI think TGR would absolutely roast this guy haha. Epicski would eat this up though.
Racing it'd be good, but free skiing involves waaay too many terrain and body positioning variables.
kylemcleanI love the idea. I don't see how it would help with knee injuries on landings as you wouldn't be able to react. I could see it being used for jumps to see how well and consistently you land though possibly helping to fix the way you land to avoid injury in the future but not in real time. I would also want to know what something like this would cost as that is a big factor for the average skier.
