Speedriding is a racy mix between flying and skiing. With the the special speedrider, which is a combination of a parachute and either a paraglider or kite, and your standard skis (or a snowboard), you take a trip downhill to an entirely new dimension. Adrenaline kicks are guaranteed.

JN Kites produced the first kite developed for this new extreme sport; it’s appropriately named "Hellracer." Check out the video above to see an unbelievable downhill from the Eiger in the Alps.
