Luxurious Skis Made In Jackie Chan’s Name Won’t Give You Kungfu Skills

Unknown to most people, Jackie Chan is more than an action movie star known for his slapstick kungfu scenes. He is somewhat of a misfit. For starter, he chose to live in a non-luxury, nondescript building in middle of an industrial area in Hong Kong. He has a huge collection of Chinese teapots and he has a museum where endangered and rare species are preserved. And he also skis. Yup. He does. I am not going to lie. That’s news to me. Anyways, that brings us to this: Jackie Chan Oro-Armaranto Skis, a limited edition skis created by bespoke ski maker, Foil Skis in honor of the action movie star. And it is, in Foil Skis’ tradition, very luxurious. Like super duper luxurious. Continue reading Luxurious Skis Made In Jackie Chan’s Name Won’t Give You Kungfu Skills

Droneboarding Is Definitely Not Going To Be An X-Games Sport

We familiar with sports involving boards and towing, such as kiteboarding and wake boarding, for examples. And somewhere in between these two sports, there’s an emerging board sport that crosses path with technology and it is known as droneboarding. It takes no effort to imagine what it is. That’s right, droneboarding is what it says it is, which involves a regular snowboard and a rope tethered to a drone on one end, and a handle on the other. It basically shares the principles as the aforementioned sports, except that the thing that’s towing the rider is a drone.

Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

Snow sports lovers can now say goodbye to the constant battle with fog up goggles with the Abom (short for Abominable) Zero Fog Snow Goggles. Billed as the world’s first snow google with active anti-fog technology, there are no vents to meddle with or fans to turn on; instead, it uses patented KLAIR technology which consists of an invisible heat-conductive film sandwiched between two anti-scratch coated Carl Zeiss polycarbonate lenses. A rechargeable battery is used to send current through the film to heat the lens and thus, keeping the fog at bay. A pretty ingenious solution which prompts us to think why we didn’t think of that? Perhaps someone did, but the heat conductive transparent film wasn’t invented yet? Continue reading Abom Zero Fog Snow Goggles – The World’s First Snow Goggle with Active Anti-fog Technology

Nike Zoom DK QS Double Tongue Boot | US$350.00 | www.nike.com

what does classic American aviation has to do with snowboarding? our guess is, nothing at all (not even remotely) but that doesn’t stop Nike from taking design cues from American military aviation (more like WWII aviation-inspired) and put them into this pair of snowboarding boots developed in “close connection” with famed snowboarder Danny Kass. differentiating itself from the original Nike Zoom Force 1 Boot is the unique double tongue system that guarantees to turn heads and if that fails, we are pretty sure the artwork of the menacing shark with razor sharp teeth Continue reading Nike Zoom DK QS Double Tongue Snowboarding Boot
