The Roam Ski should be able to help both pro and amateur skiers. It looks like a pair of leg braces attached to a backpack and working with a kind of wind pockets that let air in or out when the user bends his or her knees. In this way the load on the leg muscles is significantly reduced and that makes it a lot easier to be able to continue skiing or even to do things that you did not succeed at first.
Shock absorbers deluxe
According to the company, you can see the exoskeleton as a set of intelligent shock absorbers for your legs. This not only means that you can continue as an accomplished ski fan even faster and longer (good for training), but that older athletes can go on longer and feel like they are twenty years younger.
As mentioned, there are currently only prototypes, but a commercial variant of the Roam Ski is planned for next year. You can reserve a set for the small amount of $ 100, but then you’ll have to add between 1900-2400 dollars on delivery before you get one. Not a cheap joke.
That will initially only be in the US (Tahoe and Park City, to be precise), but if it is workable you will soon see these braces on slopes in Europe as well. Sounds good, because if you just like me have not skied for a long time and are not in the best shape anymore, this sounds like a fantastic device.
