GOODE PowerVest™ System features PowerGrip™ Gloves, Power-Straps, a
Load Distribution Panel which is attached to the Power Waist-Belt and a
Vest to hold everything together and provide floatation. The
PowerVestTM reduces load to your back in a similar fashion to that of a
hiking backpack. You want to carry the load (or weight) on your hips,
not your upper body and back.
various components of the PowerVest™ are shown in the following
photos. To transfer pressure to your ski, when using the PowerVest™, the
PowerGrip™ Gloves grasp the ski handle with an "over-center" leverage
strap device that is similarly used by Olympic gymnasts on the
high-bar. The load force then travels up the PowerStraps, which attach
to the gloves at the wrist, and then run under the arm and attach to
the top of the Load Distribution Panel. The
Load Distribution Panel fits inside of an internal padded pouch and
covers most of the PowerVest™ back area. The bottom of the Load
Distribution Panel is attached to the PowerWaist Belt which is fastened
around your hips. When the PowerVestTM is in use, it transfers most all
of the skiing force loads from the ski handle directly to your hips.
GOODE PowerVest™System Benefits
reducing excessive load forces to your upper body and back, the
PowerVest™ reduces muscle fatigue, reduces the repetitive compressive
load on your back and increases your strength and endurance.
using the PowerVest™, you will be able to ski more passes in a set,
with more strength than ever thought possible. Most skiers will ski 6 to
8 passes in a set. When wearing the PowerVest™, I will often ski 16 -
18 passes in a set, up to as many as 24 passes, with NO upper body
fatigue! Being able to ski more passes allows me more training time to
work on technique, ski testing and ski set-up.
PowerVest™also allows you to ski stronger. I have found that I can ski a
more powerful technique which allows me to develop more angle and more
cross-course speed, allowing me to arrive earlier at the next buoy.
