Alright everyone the new goggle side mount is on its way. It is in production as we speak and we are looking forward to this new revolutionary mount to be ready by March. The mount was inspired by the high number of phone calls, emails and discussions with numerous military personnel, fire fighters, snowboard/skiers/snow sled riders and the list goes on. So we went straight into designing and testing the new mount. I personally took the mount to Colorado to hit the slopes with the first mock ups and was extremely pleased to say the least, as were my buddies (one whom is a former pro-snowboarder and surfer) and every resort employee and rider we ran into on the mountain! If you scroll down you can watch that first test in the video titled SnowDaze.
I have just completed the second wave of testing in the new Tachyon XC trailer. I sent a few cameras and side mounts with some friends to Park City, Utah where they filmed some incredible footage. You will notice in the video 2 different points of view. The boot cam and the side mount. The new goggle side mount was used in both situations. There are two mounting options for the new mount. You can either slide your goggle strap through the mount (the mound is shaped and rounded to fit comfortably against your head or helmet) where is rests against your head, or Velcro the mount directly to your helmet. (With Industrial strength Velcro it will hold very securely). The boot cam is used by wrapping a strap of some kind around your leg at the top of your snow boot so that the camera points to the front of your board or ski. I absolutely loved the boot cam results, you really get the feel of riding and of course you have the ability on your own to adjust the angle of view.
HERE IS THE NEW TRAILER!!!
The new goggle side mount will be part of the Tachyon XC package when production is complete. For all of our existing customers who have purchased the Tachyon XC helmet cam from our website will automatically receive the mount free by mail when production is complete. Tachyon XC will also be creating a new XC package designed especially designed for Military, Fire, security and law enforcement personnel. Again, we want to thank all of the insight from the military and fire personnel as well as our existing customers.
