Tough Grip / Outdoor Device

Tough Grip
Tough Grip

The robust design makes it suitable for hiking tours in the nature. The gripping surfaces are made out of nature latex, which is elastic an improves the grip for the hands of the user. In addition there are also small cuts in the middle of the gripping surface. On that way the device can’t slip out of the users hands, even if his hands are wet or dirty. The Device can be adjusted by buttons and a touchscreen. With a new designed application, called “hike tuning” an individualized hiking track can be found. The user can search for sightseeing spots food, stores or nature paths on his hiking track.
