Who We Are:
Join the Carv team and help us to reinvent the way people learn to ski. Carv is creating a new category of sports technology by redefining the way sports are taught with cutting-edge hardware, real-time audio instruction, AI-driven data analytics, and content built with world-class instructors.
Carv is an ultra-thin pressure and motion sensor that fits in any ski boot. Your technique is assessed 20 times a second and analysed on our app.
In the app, skiers improve with personalised technique analysis and real time feedback – using game techniques to make it addictive as you learn how to improve your skiing.
We are proud to say that 95% of our customers tell us Carv has improved their skiing within days. We have grown over 2x every year for the past 5 years, and we now serve over 40,000 skiers globally. Our app has 4.8* on both app stores, and we’re hungry to keep pushing the boundaries.
