Real Measurement for Real Improvement
Delivering both instant feedback and post-run statistics, the vLink™ racing computer from Advanced Racing Computers helps you refine your technique and improve your competitive performance.
The vLink™ racing computer was designed with and for racers and ski teams. It’s an innovative new racer training tool that also creates unprecedented opportunities for coaches, sport scientists and instructors.
When you are training and your ski edges slip, even slightly, the vLink™ racing computer gives you immediate feedback. This feedback helps you try out subtle body movements and associate them with improved carving performance. Following a run, you can view and compare statistics on your average speed, top speed, slippage and distance.
Operating at a rate of 6500 images/second, the vLink™ racing computer uses optical navigation technology to measure forward and lateral movement with millimeter precision. Two rugged, lightweight enclosures called “shuttles” mount on your skis. Each has an optical lens positioned to take images of the snow at any edge angle. The shuttles transmit data wirelessly to the system’s remote, which you wear around your neck.
Instant, on-slope feedback for carving practice
An easy-to-hear tone sounds in the remote’s ear-buds when your skis slip beyond the threshold you set. The sound intensifies as your rate of slippage increases. A selectable threshold allows you to step up the challenge and make progressive improvements in your carving technique.
Post-run performance stats
The system's remote unit displays run statistics on its LCD display, including total distance, average and top speed. vLink™ stores stats for up to 99 runs and calculates the average of all runs for comparative analysis. This helps you evaluate and improve your tactics and technique from one run to the next.
