THE TR-1 DIGITAL BINDING
The TR-1 is a digital ski binding designed for easy remote release. But it can do so much more.
The TR-1 was developed for any skier who values safety in the back country. Hazards such as tree wells, creeks and crashes make the remote release binding essential.
The digital binding system includes a hand held ski fob. The fob can be attached to the skier’s jacket for easy access.
Ski poles with built-in rechargeable battery and Bluetooth connection are available. This option can generate additional sales revenue.
The TR-1 uses a standard Bluetooth stack protocol with an approximate range of 100 meters.
A smartphone app will enable users to track battery power, trigger binding release, or activate alarm for lost ski.
Customers will have the ability to program unique personalized sounds for their skis using the smartphone app. Sound gives the skier the ability to find skis that become lost in the snow or the ski rack.
Light weight construction – currently weighs less than 10 ounces per ski. We anticipate dropping this weight by 40% by utilizing more plastic materials in the final design. Low profile design – only 10 mm thick.
