Enjoy the pleasure of Augmented Skiing
with the Ski~Mojo exoskeleton
Reduces pain and drastically decreases pressure on the knees
Maximize your skiing time, or ski harder during winter holidays
Absorb the terrain like never before with super charged legs
Reduced muscular fatigue decreases the risk of injury
Ski~Mojo is not a regular knee brace for injured skiers but an orthosis of a new generation (more precisely a spring based powered exoskeleton). It enables any skier to increase performance and pleasure.
It brings additional endurance and power. It delays muscle fatigue and eradicate sore legs. It makes skiing more fun days after days even for the fittest skiers. Moreover, people with knee, hip and lower back pain will feel at the least an extreme relief of pain.
With Ski~Mojo, edge grip feels incredibly powerful on icy snow, increasing skiers self-confidence. In powder snow, you will leave your non mojo ski buddies out of breath, far behind.
Ski~Mojo will make you ski longer and better. This is why 92% of the people who tried it told us they were blown away by the experience they called “Augmented Skiing”

HOW IT WORKS
Become an expert on
Ski~Mojo is a mechanism based on a powerful adjustable spring that supports around 1/3 of the body weight. By compressing the springs in the bending phase, it restores energy and increases muscle power tenfold during extension
The suspension effect of the springs reduces vibrations, impacts and pressure on the knees by 40%. It also relieves the hips and back.
Knee flexion requires an additional, imperceptible energy expenditure. This additional hamstring work, estimated at 10%, combined with a 30% reduction in quadriceps contraction helps to protect the cruciate ligaments.
The production of lactic acid, which renders the muscles ineffective, is delayed and limited. This reduces the risk of fatigue-related accidents and muscle soreness.
Designed for skiing, snowboarding and telemark
Used by more than 11 000 skiers including around 500 ski instructors, mountain guides and patrollers

Tips & Frequent Questions
Almost certainly, this is what the Ski~Mojo is best at. It will benefit you in two main ways:
Firstly, on our recommended settings, the Ski~Mojo will reduce the load your knees have to endure by around 33% thus reducing the stress your knees are subjected to. This will allow you to be more in control of your skis, reducing the risk of further injury and reducing or eliminating any pain or discomfort that you may normally be accustom to.
Secondly, the Ski~Mojo is a shock absorbing suspension system. Normally when skiing you have constant “chatter” going through your knees which can cause irritation and subsequent swelling of the knee. The Ski~Mojo absorbs this chatter and any compressions.
Almost certainly, as normally when skiing you get constant “chatter” going through your whole body; as the Ski~Mojo is a shock absorbing suspension system it reduces the stress and vibration/jolting that your back and hips have to endure.
The Ski~Mojo also supports you in a good posture as it mimics an ergonomical (or kneeling) chair, which also takes strain from the back.
Like the electrically assisted bicycle, the Ski~Mojo has also convinced many skiers who do not suffer from any pathology. They use the Ski~Mojo to improve their performance (and in particular their muscular endurance) during long days of skiing. It allows the skier to maintain an optimal technique and curve control even after numerous runs, and thus to enjoy skiing tenfold.
The Ski~Mojo is also used by some athletes for training as well as some ski schools to help skiers to correct certain technical postures.
Last but not least, by delaying muscular fatigue, the Ski~Mojo reduces the risk of falling and therefore improves your safety.
Note that the Ski~Mojo is already used by many mountain professionals (instructors, ski patrols, …).
Walking is a movement that is difficult to reproduce in a purely mechanical way. The Ski~Mojo was designed for skiing or snowboarding (as its name suggests). This movement is relatively simple since it just involves bending the knees when the feet are in contact with the ground. For walking, it is quite different. Walking with the Ski~Mojo activated/engaged will be more difficult and in this situation the user can deactivate/disengage it very easily.
The Ski~Mojo also requires a rigid support point on the shoe and walking with ski boots

Yes – in a positive way!
The Ski~Mojo will work with your natural articulation when skiing and it will help you to maintain the correct posture , also as it takes less physical effort to ski, it is easier and you can ski for longer, all factors which help you to improve your skiing technique.
Falling while wearing the Ski~Mojo is usually no different than if you fell without one. As the Ski~Mojo runs down the side of your leg it works as side impact protection bars, just like those on a car and will often reduce the affect of any impact. However, under certain circumstances: e.g. if you fall on the end of the upper telescopic rod, it may cause bruising (in the same way as if you fell on your keys if you had them in your pocket. There is a layer of Neoprene between your leg and the rod, which can usually be folded over and “doubled-up”; you may wish to add additional padding to fit between these rods and your legs to further help reduce the risk of bruising.
If you fall or are hit by another skier/boarder from the side then the Ski~Mojo will take the majority of the impact rather than your leg. It will spread the impact down the length of the Ski~Mojo which has the effect of cushioning any impact you receive. If you were not wearing the Ski~Mojo, then any impact would be felt directly on the side of your leg.
We cannot make any claims that the Ski~Mojo is impact safety equipment. The above is based on the anecdotal evidence of several Ski~Mojo users. The most relevant anecdotal evidence is that we have not heard of a single injury (other than normal bumps and bruises) sustained by a Ski~Mojo user other than in circumstances where they fell that the injury would have been worse if they had not been wearing their Ski~Mojo.
The answer is a definite NO.
In fact you will probably build them up even more, as overall you will use them a lot more, just at a lower, safer work-level.
When we overwork our muscles they produce more Lactic Acid than they can cope with. It is this build up of Lactic Acid which causes “thigh burn” while skiing and stiff legs the next day. We overwork our thigh muscles in relation to the rest of our body when skiing, so it is usually the thigh muscles that limit the amount of skiing we can do. The rest of our body is up for more!
When you exercise you should try to keep your Heart Rate in the “Target Zone”, 65%-85% of your maximum. Anything higher and you will be getting into the “Anaerobic Zone” which means you will be producing a lot of lactic acid in your muscles and you will tire very quickly. This is generally what happens when we ski.
Using the Ski~Mojo reduces the work that your thigh muscles have to do by around 33% and this is usually more than enough to keep you out of the “Anaerobic Zone” and in the “Target Zone”. As a result you can ski longer and harder which increases your heart rate (within the Target Zone) which burns more calories thus helping burn fat faster and helping the heart to become fitter. Also, your knee cartilage and ligaments take a pounding when skiing. The Ski~Mojo acts as shock-absorbers, taking up to 30% of the strain off and therefore protecting the joints and offering skiing injury prevention.
Ski~Mojo turns your skiing day in to an all-round work out!
The initial fitting should take no longer than a few minutes, only one tool is required and that is a small Allen key that is supplied with the kit.
After that it will take very little time to put on and take off each day you ski. Simply put it on in your room before you put on your ski trousers (see fitting instructions for how to do this) then pull your ski trousers over the top and head down to the boot room to put on your ski boots. Once your ski boots are on then it’s a simple case of connecting the ski~mojos to the attachments on your ski boots.
Many Ski~Mojo users also use it for ski touring; but on the way down! Indeed, to go up, it will not disturb you but we will not help you either.
For the ascent, two solutions are available to you:
- Either have it installed on your legs, but deactivated/disengaged. It will be quickly forgotten and you can even make your conversions quite normally.
- Or in the backpack (1.4 kg without the harness, plus 0.150 kg for the harness that you can keep on you). It will then take you less than two minutes to install it once you reach the summit.
In both cases, the Ski~Mojo will give you a lot of pleasure and comfort on the way down.

The ominous title of this event should not frighten those who have never skied around gates or in a slalom. The organizers wish to show the sporting potential of using this type of equipment (to fight prejudices), but the emphasis will also be placed on safety, prevention, endurance, pleasure and intergenerationality.
