New Startup Creates First Wearable for Snow Sports

By YodelTECH Inc, Special for  USDR

Introducing YodelUP – a revolutionary wearable device for skiers and snowboarders to control music and instantly talk to a group of friends just like a walkie-talkie. Forget calling, texting, using Apps (WhatsApp, Snapchat, Periscope) or whatever you currently do to communicate on the slopes; YodelUP harnesses push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) technology to bring you the next-big-thing in mountain  communication!

Communicate live on the mountain with your group of friends, whether you’re on the chairlift, carving down the hill or getting some serious air-time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a pro, YodelUP takes your experience on the slopes to the next level by keeping friends and family members connected-allowing you to share more moments, have more fun and stay  safe.

“No one likes taking their gloves off while skiing or riding. Yet, we all need to call a friend to meet up on the mountain, and those of us who like to rock out to music while riding would want to skip a track or adjust the volume,” says Founder Darius Sahebjavaher, “YodelTECH has a solution, and it doesn’t require you to give up your favourite gear for pricy helmets and gloves with built-in  controls.”

YodelTECH has collaborated with Zello, the #1 walkie-talkie App maker with 50+ million downloads, to bring you a streamlined communication experience. Just download the App, add your friends and you’re ready for instant walkie-talkie style communication when you press the “YODEL” button. And of course, you can still pick up phone calls just like any hand-free device. “Communication on the slopes has never been  easier.

YodelUP on-glove wearable fits over any winter glove, so you can control your phone while still wearing your favourite gear. “YodelUP has extra-large buttons with special tactile features that you can distinctly feel with gloves or mittens on – this enables you tointuitively control your music without having to look at the device,” says co-founder Ramin Sahebjavaher. Connect YodelUP to your smartphone via Bluetooth (compatible with iOS and Android) and control your music (play/pause, next/previous track and adjust volume) without ever taking your phone out of your  pocket.

Your favorite music and friends, everything you love at your fingertips. Be the first to receive a YodelUP by backing the Kickstarter campaign. More info at
