Multiply your skiing time by 4 times
Who has never dreamed of being able to improve their performance and ski longer with more intensity?
Even when you are in good physical shape and properly trained, the pleasure of skiing is insatiable and increases with intensity. The quadriceps will eventually start to burn (some of you will like this feeling) and it will be necessary to stop to let the lactic acid level go down. Stopping when you want to, to admire the landscape for example, is always positive, but a break imposed by fatigue breaks the rhythm. And some of us want to push our body to the limit, sometimes even a bit too far.
By taking care of 1/3 of the body weight, Ski~Mojo allows quadriceps to work with less power and more endurance. Just imagine feeling lighter. The stress on the quadriceps, which must contract to resist pressure or make you ascend (expansion phase) is less important. The gesture is the same, so the muscle works in the same way but saves energy (35 to 40%). This saved energy will actually be transferred over the duration of the effort. In other words, the Ski~Mojo user will feel lighter and will be able to make more turns or put more intensity and amplitude before feeling the rise of lactic acid and burning thighs.
The benefits :
- Increases skiing time
- Decreases recovery time
- Improves technique
- Reduces muscle pain
- Reduces risk of injury
- Increases comfort
- Erases knee, back and hip pain
Don’t get us wrong, with Ski~Mojo, skiing is still a sport but rather than being a power sport, it becomes an “endurance” sport by multiplying the duration of exercise by 3 to 4 between each break, or by allowing you to ski longer in the day. All doctors, physiotherapists or physical trainers will confirm that the strength of muscles does not depend solely on their mass. Everyone will also tell you that in the context of a leisure sports activity, it is preferable to favour more repetitions at a lower intensity. The use of Ski~Mojo does not reduce the muscle mass of the quadriceps. On the other hand, a recent laboratory study by physiotherapy students showed that hamstrings were about 10% more used. Thus, by reducing the intensity of the quadriceps from 35 to 40% and increasing that of the hamstrings, the ratio between these muscles is greatly improved (27%) with the benefit of better protection of the anterior cruciate ligaments.
So, if you want to enjoy your days on the mountain, if you want to rip the powder all day long and get more fun that you ever had, if you want to have fun in the gates, if you just want to follow your children who are now more athletic and in better physical shape, in short, if you want to improve your performance to increase your pleasure, Ski~Mojo will undoubtedly be the answer to all your expectations. Don’t wait to try it and make your own opinion.
The Ski~Mojo delays fatigue so much that it allows even young athletes to ski very long distances without difficulty.

Protects your knees
SOME INTERESTING FIGURES
- 8,000,000 snow sports enthusiasts in France
- 52 million skiing days
- 150,000 wounded per year, including more than 50,000 knee injuries.
- 9,000 ACL injuries
- Women over 25 years of age are 3.5 times more exposed than men to ACL injuries
- ACL injuries lead to accelerated wear of the cartilage and meniscus which also increases the risk of ACL injury to the healthy knee.
INTENSITY OF MUSCULAR WORK AND KNEE PROTECTION
Since 2008, two studies* have been carried out regarding the impact of Ski~Mojo on muscular activity, with the aim of determining the degree of objectivity of users feelings.
Thanks to electromyography, they were able to determine that with the Ski~Mojo:
- quadriceps work on average at 70% of their reference activity.
- hamstrings work on average at 110% of their reference activity.
The energy savings felt on the quadriceps’ work is therefore very real and quantified.
Several studies have also established the importance of the hamstring/quadriceps (H/Q) ratio to protect the anterior cruciate ligaments. When analysing the results of EMG (electromyography), we note that the use of Ski~Mojo significantly improves this ratio (27%). This improved ratio reduces knee laxity and therefore protect the ACL.
Fatigue is a contributing factor to the risk of injury to the ACL. As it has been proven that Ski~Mojo reduces fatigue, it is very likely that the risk of injury decreases.
As skiing and snowboarding are sports in which the balance is constantly challenged, the study also focused on the influence of Ski~Mojo on the balance of the user.
By analyzing the balance management on a force platform, Moret and De Gunsch’s study found that in a static tuck position, the distance travelled by the centre of mass is shorter when using the Ski~Mojo. This would tend to show that the device also has a positive influence on the skier’s balance management.
However, it is difficult to conclude that when the skier is in motion, Ski~Mojo improves or significantly alters the skier’s balance management. Further studies are to be carried out in the coming months on this topic.
In our everyday live, safety is one of the main concerns. Why shouldn’t it also be during winter sports?
Fatigue is one of the main causes of accidents and injuries. All the prevention messages invite skiers to train for minimum 1 month before going to their favorite ski resort. But how many actually follow this advice. Our lives do not always allow us to devote the time we need to prepare for this.
Ski~Mojo also makes it possible to “load” and bend the ski more efficiently. On harder snow, this induces better support and more precise driving. The improved precision and strength of the support increases security. So next winter, be clever, ski safer!
Ski~Mojo is a device based on technology using the power of a spring. The kinetic energy generated during knee flexion is restored during the extension phase by the decompression of the spring.
In order to maintain flexibility and fluidity, our recommended settings mean that the spring power will bear the load of 1/3 of the body weight. However, it is very easy to adjust the assistance according to your specific needs and preferences.
The articulated system is connected to the shell of the ski or snowboard boot and your upper body weight is supported via a comfortable harness.
The device, acting as an exoskeleton, is held in a neoprene sheath to keep it in place. The neoprene sheath is not primarily designed to provide lateral knee support and should not be over tightened. It adapts to the morphology of each person (hip circumference, tibial and femoral length). The entire system is therefore comfortable and after a while you may even find yourself forgetting you’re using Ski-Mojo at all!
The ski ~ mojo benefits
The Ski~Mojo allows users to ski longer and avoids leg and knee pain and delays the fatigue normally felt.
DIRECTOR OF PRODUCTION
The Ski~Mojo is to skiing what the turbo is to the car or what the electric motor is to the bike. It was imagined on the slopes of Courchevel but is made in Great Britain.
Ski-Mojo is loved around the world by those who want to perfect their technique, extend their skiing days, reduce shocks and eradicate pain. This product is unique and its benefits have a positive impact on the lives of its users.
