This is one gadget no snowboarder should ever be without. No boarder wants to lug too much stuff with them, but the Koncur Stix is worth packing along. The telescopic pole provides you all you with all the things you need to know for a good day on the slopes, from keeping you updated on snow conditions and expected temperatures. It also features a compass, altitude reader and emergency whistle. A definite boarder must-have.
Implications - While the main unit simply houses the LCD display and the pole itself, strangely enough, the other features are housed inside interchangeable clips. The gadget which is sure to revolutionize the snowboarding experience and make it conducive to the mobile lifestyles of most serious boarders is making waves on the slopes.
