VANCOUVER, British Columbia – December 08, 2011 – Recon Instruments, award winning innovator of Micro Optics Display technology for action sport athletes and an Official Partner of the Winter Dew Tour , will provide hands-on demonstrations of its two ISPO 2012 award-nominated Micro-Optics Display options during the Nike Open at the Breckenridge Ski Resort December 15-18. The GPS-enabled goggles provide skiers and riders with a variety of data including speed, jump analytics, vertical, altitude, location, distance, chrono/tracker, run-counter, and temperature.

“The Nike Open will be the showcase for some of the world’s best athletes, where the difference between placing and being left off the podium can be a matter of inches and milliseconds,” said Darcy Hughes, Chief Marketing Officer, Recon Instruments. “The Recon MOD and MOD Live displays enable any rider or skier to measure their best lines across metrics like speed, height, distance, airtime and other competition-level data in real-time. They’re the perfect tool for elite or amateur athletes who aspire to be the next Dew Tour star, or just want to back up their claims with true stats.”

The Android-based MOD Live ships with several industry-first applications: Buddy Tracking, Smartphone Connectivity, a Navigation app pre-loaded with the largest database of trail maps in the world, Music Playlist Mode, and Camera Connectivity for use in the future with select wireless point-of-view action cameras.

Recon’s HQ Online community extends your Alpine experience after a day on the slopes, with sharing, bragging, and exploring everything the mountain had to offer long after your day is over. Skiers and riders can re-live and learn from their trips and runs, add images and video to create a highlight reel to share with other community members or with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.

MOD and MOD Live are available now for $299 and $399 MSRP respectively at leading sporting goods retailers like REI, Sport Chalet, Mountain Equipment Co-op, and online at Amazon, and more.
