Population and migration pushed people beyond the tropics and man had to rely on his wit and gadgets to survive these harsh conditions.
The Winter is Coming: Are you more the kind of ‘chimney and chocolate at home’ person, or ‘outdoors plus maybe some wild and chill rides while enjoying the white landscape’ free soul? Whoever you are there many gadgets designed to keep you occupied during the cold season.

Recon Snow 2
Data visualization in real-time? That’s what companies like Recon Instruments or Ski Amadé have in mind since some time ago, but unfortunately, it is still not very common to see riders enjoying this technological breakthrough.

Still a futuristic gadget to give a try if you can afford before going out having fun on your skis.
