Smart Ski Helmets

Forcite Alpine is the First Ever Smart Helmet for Snow Sports

— October 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
Just as the use of wearable technology has become an essentials to many runners, swimmers and athletes of all kinds, Forcite Helmet Systems envisions that the Forcite Alpine ski helmet will play the same role for skiiers and snowboarders.

Aside from it being constructed with lightweight, high-performance materials, the Forcite Alpine has next-level safety, communication and comfort features. Equipment that is built into the helmet includes a computer, camera and earbuds, which make it possible for wearers to record and instantly share all the action in 4K, communicate with companions who are wearing the same helmet style, stream music tracks and even take hands-free phone calls with the touch of a gloved hand.

With its many sensors, the smart helmet also helps users track airtime, altitude, distance, speed and the number of runs they've completed—all great tools for pushing performance on the slopes.

Forcite Alpine is now part of a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter, which will help to bring this connected gear to snow sport enthusiasts worldwide. As a bonus to its backers, anyone who pledges more than $1,298 has the chance to get their hands on a pair of the Forcite Alpine helmets to make the most of the helmet-to-helmet communication system. Rewards for all Kickstarter campaign supporters are expected to be delivered by January 2016, which leaves plenty of time to test out the protective headgear before winter is through.
