PIQ has partnered with Rossignol to create a new version of its multi-sport sensor for tracking skiing performance on the slopes (via Engadget). The 13-axis ski sensor attaches to a ski boot and allows skiers to record runs, analyze turns, challenge friends, track best speeds and more.
It can then measure stats like edge-to-edge speed, G-force and carving angle, while giving freestyle skiers air time, G-force at landing, rotation and more. As with other PIQ models, you can check stats immediately from your Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth, but if you don't carry a phone during mogul practice, it'll store the data for later.
PIQ sells a package with the sensor and Rossignol ski accessory for €149, or the €49 ski accessory can be purchased separately for those that already own a PIQ sensor. The products can be pre-ordered until January 12, 2016 and will ship in February before general public availability.
Rossignol's companion Ski Pursuit app is free on the App Store for iPhone [Direct Link].

I was a freestyle skier just before Jonny Moseley started pushing the line of going upside-down in the bumps. This would be a really cool thing to check out - mostly out of curiosity on how accurate it might be. It'd be fun to know if I favor a side or can't put as much force in a direction.
