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.
Here is a video from our recent trip to Colorado. We had a great time trying out our new side mounts that are close to entering production, the mount fits right up against the side of your head or helmet and you can pass goggle straps through it. The weather was extremely heavy with lots of snow so the lighting is not very great. For the highest possible video quality good lighting is always the best. We will be getting footage in Park City Utah as well following Christmas hoping for a day or two of sunlight. We wish everybody the best the Holiday season, and for all of the Tachyon community we can not wait to see all of the videos you are creating with your XC.
The Tachyon Team
Here are a few pictures of the new side mount on heads and on the goggles. We will be shipping the mount out free to everyone of our customers who bought the camera prior to the mounts production. The mount is curved to fit comfortably against your head or snug against a helmet with an opening to slide your goggle strap through.
Me and the boys…Thats me on the right, the guy that is a little bit bigger than everyone else.

Hey everyone we will be out snowboarding in Colorado the weekend of December 12th-14th. Tachyon will be hitting Echo Mountain and then Loveland. We will be bombin the mountain and filming for the new Tachyon XC trailer. If you see us filming make sure and stop us to say whats up and try out a cam. Here are a couple of good videos showing you the two parks (videos not by Tachyon Inc)
Echo Mountain Park-
The Perfect gift for the man who has everything……
“What does he need for Christmas?” “What will make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer?” Sometimes this can be the hardest question to answer around the holidays. Especially if your husband or boyfriend already has everything he needs (or wants)! If your someone; is an “outdoors man” then Tachyon Inc has the perfect gift to fit his needs, the Tachyon XC Extreme Helmet Cam.
The waterproof, shockproof, foolproof take anywhere camera is the perfect find for Christmas. He can use it riding his bike or motorcycle on the dirt or on the road. He can take it rafting, kayaking, snorkeling or wakeboarding; the XC is waterproof up to 28 feet (8.5m). The XC is perfect for any outdoor activity; it even has a remote control so he will be able to take it to the golf course where he can record his swing from a distance for those minor corrections. He can mount it to the ATV, bow or rifle during hunting season or anywhere on the tree stand, he can also mount it on the boat or canoe to film his fishing trips. The XC will be perfect for the family ski trip after Christmas, film the kids as dad comes barreling down behind them. Then back at the lodge create a movie on your laptop and share it with friends and family after you post it on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/tachyonxc
The Tachyon XC is the perfect surprise for the man in your life! Every guy loves to brag about his sporting activities; with the XC he’ll be able to back it up with video. This Christmas treat the man in your life to a Tachyon XC Helmet Cam. He will love you for it!
