Reignite your skiing progression

Cut through the pack

When 90% of your skiing is on the piste, make sure you aren't just cruising every day. Carv gives you the tools of an Olympic-level instructor to help you push your performance to new levels.

Carv uses the world's most advanced consumer pressure and motion chip to record 35 metrics, 25 times a second. Carv's smart insert tracks your:


  • boot motion
  • ski orientation and similarity
  • ski edging and similarity
  • pressure distribution
  • fore/aft balance
  • and much more...

Get a totally new level of insight into your skiing technique and find out where you can improve.

Carv takes your skiing profile and scores each turn against professional-level PSIA benchmarks for:


  • Edging - how is your edge angle developing through the turn, are you skis symmetrical?
  • Pressure - how smoothly are you transferring pressure to your outside ski?
  • Rotation - how consistently do you rotate each ski?
  • Balance - are you centered during each turn or are you backseat?

Carv gives you the data breakdown behind each metric and personal tips to focus on next run.

Perfect a range of skiing skills

The difference between good skiing and great skiing often comes down to a few small flaws in technique. We've designed Carv to help you find them and crush them.

  • Improve your flow
    Set a beat and keep pace with the Metronome Challenge or use the Rhythm Drill to enhance your flow.
  • Develop short and long radius carving
    Complete increasingly demanding levels of Carving Training to improve your edge angle, roll smoothness and pressure control.
  • Enhance your transitions
    Learn how to harness your carving pressure release and improve your edge-to-edge transition with the Carving Leapers Drill.

Ski drills just changed forever

Traditional ski drills are a great way to improve, but they can be boring and it's difficult to know if you're performing the movements correctly. Until now.

Carv turns ski drills into a game, using live pressure and motion sensing to tell you if you are passing or failing each turn, in real-time.

Think you've got what it takes to get to pro-level execution? Carv adapts to your level as you ski, changing the difficulty of each drill as you improve so even advanced skiers can refine their skills.

  • “I am loving the drills and I am so obsessed with levelling up as much as I can that we don’t stop for lunch till 3pm.”

  • “Carv let me know mid-run that I was applying uneven and inconsistent pressure in my turns to the right. I course-corrected and was rewarded with a “That’s it, nice work!” from Carv.”

Yes, Carv is the same thickness as a boot warmer at 3mm. It will fit in almost all ski boots including stock boots, custom moulded boots and boots with custom insoles. We offer a boot-fit guarantee so you can find the perfect match with Carv.

Carv is not optimised for off-piste skiing. However, powder skiing often highlights small issues in technique which can become the difference between beautiful tracks and twisted knee joints.

Carv helps you to find and iron out these issues on the piste. Work on your edge similarity, turn symmetry and pressure control so you can focus on your line not your technique in the powder.

Most of us end up skiing at the same level for years, especially if we are already an advanced skier.

We hit a plateau because it is hard to know where the next breakthrough will come from.

We designed Carv to take the guesswork out of great skiing:

  • Push your carving to the next level with detailed analysis
  • Improve your consistency and efficiency
  • Create higher pressure and edge angle.

If you can beat the top level drills and master the Carv ski challenges you'll be doing better than most instructors.

  • Carv works with regular headphones, Airpods and any other bluetooth headphones. See our recommendations here.
  • Almost all helmets work with in-ear headphones, so you don't need to make adjustments to your current helmet
  • If you do not want to ski with headphones, you can still improve with text-based tips, scores and drills.

“It did exactly what it said it would do. It has the potential of really educating people on what great skiing is.”
