Who Wants A Slegoon? I Do



Slegooning is a new winter sport in which participants travel down a snow-covered slope in single person sledge-type crafts, called Slegoons, in full-contact races. They can continue even when overturned.

The Slegoon won first prize in the UK IOM3 Design Innovation in Plastics competition 2003, sponsored by Bayer AG, and has received international press, including Blueprint magazine.

It was recently featured on Core77 and, resulting in hundreds of other blogs picking it up.

Ok, if you have ever skied in Switzerland you know they have sledging yes sledging on most mountains, some even have courses set up, well this would be wild, crazy to take on the Swiss Alps. Hope they start to product. would be great to pull behind a quad as well.

    Back Country Access, Stay Afloat on the Slopes

    Safety on the slopes is important, first we all started to wear helmets, great move. Now if you are going back country and hucking yourself off cliffs, well BCA (Backcountry Access), they have what you need.

    Preventing or minimizing burial depth is the key to reducing avalanche fatalities. That’s because the majority of time in an avalanche rescue is spent on excavating the victim. An airbag is designed to keep you at or near the surface, minimizing excavation time.
    Our Float avalanche airbags are the first airbags that are both affordable and easily reusable. A wide network of BCA-authorized refill centers provide unmatched service to Float purchasers. A small 2,700-psi (186 bar) compressed-air cylinder, single-chamber 150-liter airbag, and super efficient venturi system make the Float systems easy to refill, light and affordable.

    MINUS 8, Astro Studio

    So we are all looking at movements of watches, hopefully they are swiss. Well The MINUS 8 brand, consisting of products designed in this West Coast culture, is proud of its position on the world stage and takes its name from this international nomenclature. Time is relative. We are only aware of its passing if change occurs. The MINUS 8 watch references our dependence on change through a series of subtle color shifts, each step only visible in the context of the others. This color shift is achieved through the process of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD.) PVD is an industrial coating process which is inherently time dependent. A raw stainless piece is placed in a vacuum chamber where a hard coating accumulates over time. More time in the chamber produces a thicker coating and a more opaque color. A new wave of watch designers are starting to hit the market, using swiss movements, putting more focus on design. They are great, Professional Watches, has a great assortment of new and old watches with great reviews. 

    If you are new to the scene check out the directory, to see what you have in front of you. Watch collecting is coming back, so get on the wagon before the prices of some of these new watches gets out of reach.
