From personalized wax advice and equipment management to digital performance tracking and workout overview. The new Madshus empower 2 app is a whole new dimension to skiing.
Imagine always having perfect wax, never pondering which skis to pick or wondering which grind a certain pair has. Enter: the free Madshus Empower 2 app, available in the App Store and Google Play now.
The Madshus Empower 2 app, which is available for free in the App Store and Google Play, lets cross-country skiers customize performance each and every time they head on to the snow with the embedded wax helper.
The app can also help manage their ski quiver, track workouts, and lets users engage with Madshus online.
Check out some of the app’s large variety of functions:
Digital waxing assistant: The app gives Individual advices to determine the optimal length of wax zone according to weather, kind of wax and athlete’s biometrical data. This is useful not only for elite racers, but just as important for recreational skiers and growing juniors – learn how to adjust the wax pocket as they grow and gain skills.
Workout diary: Each activity is stored and automatically linked with weather data. Athletes can also add personal data on skis, wax and performance.
Managing ski quiver: Gives a record on every registered pair of skis (kilometers run, grinds, wax, performance etc.) and helps athletes understand each ski’s character.
Social Media: Connect to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
Knowhow: The app links with the Madshus Youtube channel, providing plenty of practical advice with video tutorials for cross-country skiers.
The Madshus empower app works with all of Madshus’ Smartski models. Since the 2014/15 season, all REDLINE, Nanosonic, Hypersonic skis come with an embedded RFID-chip that contain all data about the ski’s properties, such as camber height, flex, pressure points and splay, recommended skier weight and corresponding wax pockets for classic models.
