Flex sensors on the front and the back detect the snowboard’s flex. Moreover a 9-axis sensor featuring acceleration, angular velocity and a gyro allows you to know the board’s angle and angular velocity.
Data acquired by the sensors can be sent directly to a connected smartphone and you can see the data displayed in the XON app in real time.
