(KUTV) — Jeff Lind of Codeword joined 2News in studio to discuss high-tech gear for skiers and snowboarders.

The Magnemask is the first ever magnetic pull-down mask. Its warm performance fleece keeps your face, neck and head warm. The Magnemask is contoured for a perfect fit, and because of its design you can talk, eat or drink without taking the whole mask off. The Magnemask can be purchased for $49.99 on the Seirus website here.

Skiers and snowboarders who like listening to music while hitting the slopes would do well to consider the Jaybird RUN. These sport headphones are wireless and can easily fit under your helmet or hat. The Jaybird RUN headphones can play four hours straight. Using the fast charge for five minutes will get users one hour of play time! They are sweat proof and water resistant. Sound levels can be customized and best yet — if the Jaybird RUN headphones become lost, it has a locator for you to find them again. The Jaybird RUN headphones can be purchased for $179.00 on their website here.

The Smith Code Helmet is a deceptively low profile helmet is built with MIPS technology, which means it is built with a patented brain protection system and includes added protection against rotational motion. Its shell design adds better protection, and is crafted with Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for goggle integration. The Smith Code Helmet can be purchased for $180 online or in most outdoor/athletic retailers.
