Idea

We founded MotionMetrics because we feel there is an opportunity to redefine the way we learn sports. We want to provide world-class instruction to everybody and shake up the £3.4bn snow sports market with our first product, Carv.

Developed in-house, Carv’s flexible inserts for ski boots contain 114 pressure & motion sensors. Data collected is wirelessly sent to a smartphone app, giving the skier real-time instruction through headphones with detailed analysis between runs.

Last year, our users have collectively skied more than 2 times around the world, receiving over 1,000,000 voice instructions. Over the next season, we are developing a software subscription model in order to give access to premium lessons and drills, furthering revenue opportunities.

The Sunday Times describing Carv as a “game-changer” and a 5* review from Stuff magazine represent some of our press to date. But we believe the opportunity is much bigger than just sports instruction. Last year we completed a £54k big data partnership in Schladming, Austria and earned £77k from a health care pilot, giving us exposure to the rehabilitation market.

Total income of the company is £587k (including pre-orders), with a corresponding EBITDA of £-640k. We’re now raising to fund the next stage of growth and to give those passionate about our mission the chance to own part of our success.
