Seriously? You ride with an impact sensor? Is it one of those shipping sensor/stickers stuck on your helmet or what?

It does not make you a wuss to scope out all the features in a park. I don't think anyone should hit any feature blindly. It's just foolish.

Came round with a bit of shock, and continued on my way, definitely had a concussion, but didn't know better back then, now i had an impact sensor so... Not that i would take much notice of it anyway... Haha


Is this video in slow motion? If not, wait until that 40+ mph hit comes.... Fucking unreal. Over the last couple hundred days of riding i have gotten really good fall/midair/sliding/tamahawk awareness..... That looked like just the perfect face slap..... Good thing it was into a ravine and not off a super long and steep run.....

Default Funny crash video

So this video isn't crazy or anything I just started thinking about some of my own caught on tape mishaps and wanted to post one. Hope somebody is amused!

Snowboarding Sensors | Shockbox

No i was a winner of this at there "Super Bowl" giveaway on Facebook, but i have bought one as well for Sneaky, that way he cannot "lie" about how hard the hit is...

They work remarkably well, and there are a few over here in Norway with them now that race SBX, i know you know yourself how hard the hit is, but it is a wake up call that you can see what you should do, and anything that registers above medium on the scale is something i would take notice of...

That would not be allowed in SBX competition or any other over here. It would break the rules..... They wont even let you compete if you have a camera mount on your helmet, anything other than what the manufacturer intended to be on the helmet is not allowed or you will be disqualified. This is in the rule books for FIS, USASA, USSA, IFSA, FWT and I am sure many others. If these things get caught in course netting, ropes, whatever, it could cause catastrophic injury and these organizations wont allow it......

Everyone gets pissed off at the rule, mainly because of their nopro mounts, but they have to abide by it....

Pretty cool idea though. I was a safety person on course last year at US open and any time someone fell and appeared to hit their head, it was reported and they were assessed.

I don't mean in comps, but when practising big air, practice runs on sbx etc, they do use them....

Not sure how they could say that they are NOT designed for safety, it is a simple sticky pad, if you hit a net, i'm sure it would rip right of, and it is very low profile...

How does it work with helmet camera mounts then, as i have a helmet that is designed for either go pro or contour to be fitted... Haha

I know it is an argumentative point, and can easily be removed, but...



That is designed by the manufacturer to be on the helmet... Haha

Don't know and don't care really. All I know is that they don't allow it, we don't have any sort of external modification on any of my sons helmets just so we don't break their stupid rules. I am sure someone broke their neck at some point to have made this a rule.

Neither to i to be honest, i use it and my stepson will use it as well this season, it is a small price to pay for peace of mind, and not a major problem to have on a helmet for that...!

It is a couple of years away before he starts riding on the mountain on his own, but that really will be an essential for us then as i can always be aware when we hook up to see if he has had a hard fall... Kids will always tell you something other than the pain they are in and want to keep going unless bones are broken, and the one part that would be really hard to fix is the head...

Shockbox are pushing really heavily in hockey and football over there in the USA and that is a good place to start, but i don't think it will be long before the shockbox makes it's way into snow sports in the same way as well...
