Based in the Slovenian Alps, Elan Skis has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative companies in the industry and this is further supported by the debut of its smart ski concept, presented at this year's ISPO.

Elan Ski's proposed the performance-enhancing SLX Fusion model -- a sensor smart ski that captures data from the run and uses it to coach the consumer to be a better athlete. The relevant information includes skier's dynamics like "precise weight flex and balance distribution." With each curve, the smart ski-integrated sensors store and analyze the data for later reference.

Elan ski's idea is that the smart ski technology can serve as a self-coach and to be an accessible way for winter sports enthusiast to evaluate style weaknesses and improve technique in a budget-friendly manner.
