Questions & Answers
How is the Packtalk Ski different from the Packtalk Slim or Bold?
The Packtalk Ski has been especially designed to give skiers and snowboarders everything they need on the slope. It performs flawlessly under extreme cold conditions, connects users through challenging obstacles such as hills and trees and can be installed on a run-of-the-mill winter sports helmet within minutes.
Designed to provide the ultimate winter sports experience at an affordable price, Packtalk Ski is doing away with several road-specific features that are of little use on the mountain such as: Legacy support for older Bluetooth intercom systems, multiple phone connections, and FM radio. To fit the shape of winter sports helmets, the Packtalk Ski comes with a dedicated audio kit and an integrated boom microphone instead of the hybrid and wired set that was designed purely for motorcycle helmets.’

What is Dynamic Mesh Communication?
Dynamic mesh communication (DMC) is a networking technology that creates living connections, actively seeking to connect to other units. DMC will adapt based on the behavior of units in a network to ensure communication is maintained in the best way possible. If one unit leaves the network, all other units work together to leapfrog that signal. Once a unit comes back within range it automatically re-joins the group.
