Smart Skis That Calculate Your Every Move | Product Reviews
Like most ski instructors, Wagner Custom Skis are both strikingly attractive and performance-oriented. But instead of giving you gentle words of encouragement like Janica would, Wagner loans you a pair of test skis outfitted with two data-crunching sensors called vLinks (pictured), which analyze every nuance of your form—from speed and turn radius to slippage and imbalances. The vLinks are essentially souped-up optical mouses that grab data 6,500 times per second to track movement spatially along X, Y, and Z axes and rotationally, capturing pitch, roll, and yaw. After your day on the slopes, Wagner runs the numbers through proprietary software and combines them with the results of an in-depth questionnaire to craft truly custom equipment. The skis’ materials, stiffness, and shape will match your strengths and compensate for your weaknesses.
