Staying Connected Speed Riding in the Backcountry | Sena 2021 Snow Gear Guide

January 11, 2021

 

In his iconic 16-year professional career, ski pro and adrenaline enthusiast J.T. Holmes has led the way in Ski-B.A.S.E. jumping, wingsuit flying, B.A.S.E. jumping and speedriding. To stay connected and document their incredible journey, J.T. and his crew use the Sena bluetooth communication devices, the same tech used in the Sena Latitude S1 snow helmets. As they take on new challenges laid out by the elements, J.T. and his crew use proven Sena bluetooth capabilities to keep the sound on without interruption or interference.This is vital for capturing the right shots and keeping lines of communication open.

In J.T.’s line of work, the thrills are high and so are the stakes. Discussing a speedriding shoot in Chamonix, France, J.T. recalled, “I can remember one clear ‘save’ that the Sena Bluetooth comms provided and it made the movie. Espen Fadnes and I had just flown off a buttress and I was looking one direction but drifting in another. Espen spoke calmly and directly to me mid flight in order to avoid a collision. In the full segment, there is audio of us during and debriefing that moment. By speaking to each other we are able to warn of our next dynamic move, erasing the unpredictable nature of high speed flying and skiing.”

Latitude S1 Snow Helmet with Built-In Bluetooth Communication & Audio

While Sena snow gear provides crystal-clear sound for mountain-made playlists, the most important role our products play in the lives of all riders is safety. We take both very seriously.

When things go south, quality sound plays a huge role in guiding riders to the best outcomes.  As well as providing seamlessly integrated HD sound, Sena Latitude S1 snow helmets are certified for impact rating by the European Committee for Standardization and the American Society of Testing and Materials.
