SNOW-1 are smartphone-connected snowboard bindings with a Bluetooth 4.0 module and various sensors that can measure a snowboarder’s weight balance, snowboard flex and other data in real time. Data acquired by the sensors can be sent directly to a connected smartphone via Bluetooth and you can see the measured data in the XON app in real time. They are the world’s first snowboard bindings that can be connected to a smartphone enabling riders to analyze and visualize their runs.

The load balance sensors embedded into the soles of each binding record one of the most important factors in snowboarding, two flex sensors that are attached to the board are able to detect board deflection. Furthermore acceleration, angular velocity, geomagnetism sensors are able to detect the rider’s position and direction.

The SNOW-1 bindings have ultra-high brightness LEDs built into the heel and toe. Light levels will respond to the load level sensors in each binding. You can also activate the LEDs to create impressive light trail effects in your dusk riding videos. Instructors and learners can also benefit by being able to easily see each other on the slopes.
