jakna softshell za različne športe

Softshell, kakovostno oblačilo

Softshell je znak kakovostno oblačilo .

Oblačila ljudje nosimo od najstarejših časov do danes. Omogočaj nam zaščito pred negativnimi vplivi iz okolice. Negativni vplivi iz okolice so raznovrstni, tem primerno izbiramo tudi oblačila. Med seboj se oblačila zelo razlikujejo. Uporabljajo jih za profesionalne aktivnosti, aktivnosti prostega časa, športne aktivnosti in mnoge druge aktivnosti. V primerjavi z oblačili iz preteklosti, je za današnja oblačila značilno, da so v mnogih primerih iz sodobnih materialov. Sodobne materiale omogoča uporaba napredne tehnologije. Velika prednost teh materialov je, da se jih da izdelati v množici zelo različnih lastnosti. Oblačila namreč niso le uporaben kos garderobe, z oblačili okolici sporočamo svoj modni okus in svoje prepričanje o modni primernosti. Temu primerno so lahko softshell oblačila izbrana na razne načine. Sodobni materiali so v primerjavi s starejšimi generacijami oblačil različni tudi v mnogih drugih lastnostih. Danes so lahko oblačila lažja, enostavnejša za uporabo in čiščenje ter boljša v mnogih drugih lastnosti. Zato ne preseneča, da se softshell oblačila množično uporabljajo. Hkrati pa zaradi softshell ostajajo več časa v garderobnih omarah oblačila starejšega datuma. Udobje, praktičnost in druge lastnosti, ki jih imajo softshell oblačila, nas prepričujejo in motivirajo za uporabo ob mnogih priložnostih. Vse te lastnosti, ki jih imajo softshell oblačila, so hkrati tudi vzrok, zakaj starejša oblačila ostajajo vedno več časa v garderobnih omarah. Softshell je velikokrat tudi razlog za nakup. Nakupno odločanje je velikokrat povezano z izbiro med posameznimi lastnostmi, ki jih ima ali nima določen artikel. Nekatere lastnosti poznamo, ker smo jih že izkusili v preteklosti, druge pa so za nas neznanka. Neznanka so druge lastnosti zato ker z njimi nimamo izkušenj ali pa so neotipljive narave. Izbira je v tem primeru prepuščena večji ali manjši zaznavnosti in koristnosti lastnosti neotipljive narave posameznih artiklov.

Softshell oblačila so primerna za najrazličnejše priložnosti, namene in načine uporabe.

Information On Ski Carving Tehnique

Ski carvingCarving is when the edges cut into the snow properly that the skis do not slide sideways but go straight along the length. These are some ski carving technique. For you to initiate the curve, you should be pointing straight down the slope by rolling your knees over the ski edge then dig deep into the snow and steer the ski across the slope. The ski should be put on the edge so that when you start to turn, the skis will cut into the snow and not slide. The most common mistake that is made by people who are learning how to carve is they do not roll their knees.

When you are learning how to carve well, your body weight should be transferred to the middle of the outside ski. The body needs to be more upright than your legs so that the edges can be dug into the snow as much as possible. This also makes it easier to switch between turns as the body does not need to move so far. More experienced skiers will use the inside ski as they are carving to an extent although this is only when the conditions permit them to really dig on the edges of both skis into the snow.

Carving is not always possible. For you to carve, you will need to have the right equipment and the right conditions. The snow needs to be soft enough so that the edges can dig into it but hard for it to hold the sideways forces that you will have created. People find it really hard to carve in icy conditions as it is not easy to cut into the snow. The sharpness of the edge of your ski also makes a big difference. The sharper the edges are, the easier they will dig into the snow.

Kite design

Foil kites
Foil kites are usually tissue (ripstop nylon) with air cushion (air cells), it takes a lift and a fixed bridle, the dragon of the arch form, similar to a glider. Foil kites are either open or closed cell configuration, cell slides open to a constant flow of air to the intake valves to stay inflated, but are usually impossible to relaunch if it in the water, because they have no means to prevent deflation and quickly soaked.

Closed-cell films are almost identical with open cell films, unless they are equipped with inlet valves to keep air in the chambers, so that the inflated dragon (or at least that the deflation extremely slow) once in the water. Water relaunched with closed cell foil kites are easier, a constant tug on the power supply to the rule, they can be taken again.

Foil kites are popular for land or snow, in which the dragon is not a factor moist. A depowerable foil kites can have the same range of wind conditions than two traditional form C-LEI kites sizes, so that the driver can create a small dragon, a broader depower row, although the new LEI arch dragons have a similar range. Foil kites have the advantage of not need to have bubbles inflated manually, a process that with a LEI, it can take up to ten minutes.

Bow kites
Top inflatable dragon, a bridle at the top. It can be a flat, swept-back profile and concave rear edge allows the dragon more depower.

Bow kites have a broader spectrum than wind C-Dragons (LEI traditional dragon), so that two dragons sizes (like 7m2 and 12m2), could be an effective quiver to the winds of 10 to 30 + nodes for a 75 kg rider. This makes bow kites for beginners is to dragons sport, but they are also professionals.

Bow kites in a variety of kites related sports, including kite surfing and snowkiting. Because of their depower row, they allow users to tackle the problems caused by blast, safer to use. They are also of kite surfers to ride the wave, as their unique form suitable for this discipline.

Motocross

Motocross

Motocross – The two-engine produces more energy than four of the same capacity (cc), but oil must be introduced into the crankcase for consumers rod bearing lubrication, either with a pump or by mixing with the gasoline, this oil is burned, the characteristic odor of two stroke engine. Four stroke further drove in the specialist classes during this period, partly in the 500cc class. In the early 1980s, another wave of technological advances saw the typically two stroke air-cooled, two shock rear suspension machines replaced by machines, the water cooled and monoshock rear suspension. This led to even more machines within the existing displacement categories (125, 250 and 500cc).

Freestyle
A relatively new sport that is not racing, but focuses on the implementation of acrobatic stunts while jumping motocross bikes. The winner is selected by a panel of judges. The drivers are scored on style, difficulty level of the trick, the best use of the course, and often amount reactions as well.

A trick executed if the backflip Alto, was disputedly completed a 250cc motorcycle by Greg Chrin with a specially dirt ramp. Soon after that, Mike Metzger this trick with a standard freestyle and dirt landing pad. Recently Mike Metzger actually a back flip over the Caesar’s Palace fountains. Some think the body varial 360 as the most difficult stunt, which at that time. This trick also Carolla, was first performed by Chuck Carothers at the 2004 X Games. Previously, the backflip Alto 360, or off-axis backflip Alto, was widely considered the biggest challenge trick. Another driver under freestyle to a new level is Travis Pastrana. In 2006 he the world’s first double backflip Alto. At the 2006 X Games, Travis, the world’s first double backflip Alto (in the competition). It earned him the 2006 freestyle gold medal. The double backflip Alto is currently considered the most difficult Freestyle stunt.

Rock climbing

Rock climbing

Rock climbing, largely speaking, is the act of the increasing stiff formations of rock. Normally, the climbing ones use the speed and the equipment of safety specifically designed for the goal. The force, resistance, and the mental order are required to face the hard and dangerous challenges of medical examination, and the knowledge of the rising techniques and the use of the essential pieces speed and of equipment are crucial. Although to rise rock is an activity in the open air, much of cities are at the house in the rooms of gymnastics rising rock of interior which can be made up with the match that (but not necessarily mental or technical) the physical qualification level had need to rise external.

The climbing ones usually work in the pairs, with one rising and other besieging. The belayer supplies the cord with climbing of wire by a device of catch. The chief rises to the top, place protection, rises higher and places protection until the top is reached. The belayer is ready to close with key in addition to cord if the chief falls.

The two climbing ones attach the cord to their rising harness, usually attaching in their harness with a figure-eight node or double knot of bowline. Protection or fasten them places of chief in the permanent protection already fixed at the rock. In rising traditional, protection is dismountable. Usually nuts or the device of cam with spring (often indicated under the name of “friends”) are placed in cracks in the rock (although pitons are sometimes employed). In the sport the rise of protection is metal loops called the clotheshangers. Clotheshangers are fixed at the rock with the bolts of extension of masonry taken of the construction trade, or placement adhesive-in systems of bolt. In ice the rise of protection is screws of ice or similar devices hammered or screwed in the ice by the chief, and removed by the second climbing one.

The climbing one of wire typically connects the cord to protection with the carabiners. If the climbing one of wire falls, it will fall the length twice from the cord outside of the last point of protection, plus the right end of cord (in general 5% 8% of the cord outside), plus slackness. If the speed one of breaks or withdraws rock or if the belayer does not close with key in addition to device of catch immediately, the fall will be appreciably longer. Thus if climbing is 2 meters above the last protection which it will fall 2 meters to protection, 2 meters below protection, plus the right end of slackness and cord, during a total fall of more than 4 meters.

The lead climber typically connects the rope to the protection with carabiners. If the lead climber falls, the belayer stops the cord. This is carried out while running the cord by a device of catch fixed at the harness of the belayer. The device of catch runs the cord by a series of pointed curves which, once functioned correctly, increase friction considerably and stop the cord running. Some of the more popular types of devices of catch are the device of catch of ATC, diagram 8 and the various auto-locking devices of catch such as the Grigri of Petzl.

With the top of launching, the chief establishes a blocked system of anchor, also called a catch, from where it can besiege while its associate rises. The second climbing one removes the speed of the rock (to rise traditional) or removes the carabiner bolted clotheshanger (rising sport). The two climbing ones are now with the top of launching with all their equipment. To note that second is protected from above all while rising, but the chief is not, thus to be the chief is more provocative and dangerous.

From time to time, the climbing ones can decide “to bring closer”, a technique risky but prompt also called the simul-rise, which the chief and move in the second place at the same time without stopping with the catch. The chief – roughly a length of cord above the second – place usually multiple pieces of protection while it rises so that the weight of the second climbing one could stop the fall of a possible chief. If it would be the second climbing one to fall, however, the chief can be drawn from his catches, with potentially unpleasant results.

Base Jumping

Base Jumping

Base jumping grew by parachute jumping. BASE jumps are usually very much lower than heights jumps, and a BASE jump will be held in the vicinity of the building as the platform directly. Because BASE jumps generally bring rated flight speeds slower than typical jumps because of the limited height, BASE jumpers rarely reaches terminal velocity (the speed achieved after twelve seconds acceleration). Because higher rated flight speeds allow jumper aerodynamic more control over their bodies, as well as positive and quick parachute openings, the longer the delay, the better.

Skydivers use of air power to stabilize their position, so that the parachute deployment to clean. BASE jumpers fall at lower speeds, less aerodynamic control, and can tumble. The position of the body at the moment of jumping, the stability of the aircraft in the first few seconds, before sufficient air speed has to provide aerodynamic stability. With low BASE jumps, parachute deployment will take place in this early phase of the flight, so that when a bad starting leads into a laundry dryer, the jumper may not be able to correct before the opening. When the parachute is in operation, while the jumper is drumming, there is a high risk of entanglement or malfunctions. The bridge may also not be in the right direction. Such a position-opening is not a problem in parachute jumping, but from opening section that results in the object strike has led to severe injuries and deaths in BASE jumping.

Skateboarding

Skateboarding

Skateboarding is the act of riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. A person who skateboards is most often referred to a skateboarder, skater or skate rat.
Skateboarding can be a recreational activity, an artform, a job, or a method of transportation. Skateboarding has been shaped and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years. A 2002 report by American Sports Data found that there were 18.5 million skateboarders in the world. 85 percent of skateboarders polled who had used a board in the last year were under the age of 18, and 74 percent were male.
Skateboarding is relatively modern. A key skateboarding maneuver, the ollie, was developed in the late 1970s by Alan Ollie Gelfand as a half-pipe maneuver. Freestyle skateboarder Rodney Mullen was the first to take it to flat ground and later invented the kickflip and its variations.

Culture

Skateboarding was, at first, tied to the culture of surfing. As skateboarding spread across the United States to places unfamiliar with surfing or surfing culture, it developed an image of its own. For example, the classic film short Video Days (1991) portrayed skateboarders as reckless rebels.
The image of the skateboarder as a rebellious, non-conforming youth has faded in recent years. Certain cities still oppose the building skateparks in their neighbourhoods, for fear of increased crime and drugs in the area. The rift between the old image of skateboarding and a newer one is quite visible: magazines such as Thrasher portray skateboarding as dirty, rebellious, and still firmly tied to punk, while other publications, Transworld Skateboarding as an example, paint a more diverse, and controlled picture of skateboarding. Furthermore, as more professional skaters use hip hop, reggae, or hard rock music accompaniment in their videos, many urban youths, hip-hop fans, reggae fans, and hard rock fans are also drawn to skateboarding, further diluting the sport’s punk image.
Films such as Grind and Lords Of Dogtown, have helped improve the reputation of skateboarding youth, depicting individuals of this subculture as having a positive outlook on life, prone to poking harmless fun at each other, and engaging in healthy sportsman’s competition. According to the film, lack of respect, egotism and hostility towards fellow skateboarders is generally frowned upon, albeit each of the characters (and as such, proxies of the “stereotypical” skateboarder) have a firm disrespect for authority and for rules in general. Group spirit is supposed to heavily influence the members of this community. In presentations of this sort, showcasing of criminal tendencies is absent, and no attempt is made to tie extreme sports to any kind of illegal activity.
Gleaming the Cube, a 1989 movie starring Christian Slater as a skateboarding teen investigating the death of his adopted Vietnamese brother was somewhat of an iconic landmark to the skateboarding genre of the era. Many well-known skaters had cameos in the film, including Tony Hawk.

 

Kayaking

Kayaking

Kayaking – splendourful traditions of the travel on turbulent water practiced by soot haven, which associations take first kayaking for the means of all switching of roaring rapids and of seething laughter under Wasserfällen. In this country the pursuit of the adrenalin catches approx. six months before the arrival fast verzierten on rivers on. Between November and April construct to learn alleged go kayakers flat out and to muscles rowers and exercising the rudders and develop for a special purpose abilities in a warm pool, like the Eskimorolle, the ability, to get the boat under your body back if it were gekentert by a violent river. The Bestimmungsörter for the white water, which is extensive, catches journeys is typical for a majority of associations up: the Altai, Karelia, the Caucasus, the Baikal region.

In any case ones near supervised, while they are by experienced coaches, handle whitewaterers, a quantity of area in a rather short area of the time to cover their ways which grow gradual more with difficulty, and them begin to think on an increasingly regular basis of borrowing multiplicity to their life. The alternative, which suggests itself then, is fast verzierten rivers of Italy, Germany, Norway, Turkey, Croatia and during the period of of Russia long winters – the Wasserarterien of Chile and of New Zealand. Of Russia rising demand for white water routes far offers of kayaking routes got.

The main advantage of the organized tourism surplus the journeys catch, which are promoted by the associations, are the choice, so that all interested people participate, to carry without having, extensive gear wheel and above all the boats. Meanwhile in the strange parts, the small light-colored boat is increasingly used for family clearance along coasts and on lakes, on eco ways, in order to watch out wilderness.

While the Kayaking fast verzierte down rivers a Eskortekatamaran or driving a car requires along the river, supply a loaded Kajak, which, the Seekajaks, is particularly intended for long self-supporting journeys ponderous, a probability, to visit the positions up to now which are unaffected by civilization: literally squeezes together through, where alternative transport examines practically impossible.

Rafting

Rafting

Rafts. Clearance on rafts won larger number of the surplus increasingly from enthusiasts each year. Rafts is an existing choice both for those, which never exercised a rudder, and old hand water tourists, for whom rafts the travel means along more difficult ways. Classical flowing travels down fast verzierte rivers on large inflatable frameless containers or rafts, which are swimming to a high degree, reliably, steadily to the water and adjustment for a group of tourists for the order places (6-12 persons). With the arrival of this kind of the ship, the travel is not down turbulent rivers any more a privilege of the water tourists, who took up themselves traditionally such risky selforganized journeys on Kanus and rafts.

The new years saw enormous fluctuation of the interest, on too would flow, therefore a majority rivers of Russia, usable for this kind of the active tourism, are used, in order to organize commercial flössende routes. Most navigable white water of rivers are not for rafts excluded into certain parts usable and if the water level is quite. Around a decision to on meet must whether one at a flössenden route, an alleged flössendes party member the complexity of the way evaluate participates. For example the routes, which are conceived for people without special training, do not refer switching of the obstacles strongly also in, which the category three, which, not freely from the prospect of of an extreme situation, represent which develops, not deadlier a danger than a fluctuation of the adrenalin in the bloodstream. Those, which, which find, are necessary it to use adrenalin in the larger quantities are offered special routes and even expeditions, but to decide, on such an adventure to embark itself, the travelers must have had normally quite many singles rafts of experiences on turbulent rivers under their belt. When descending the river, the tourists sit on the edges of the raft and the row with rudders under the monitoring of a teacher its presence on board the raft must for commercial flowing are. On direct ways the tourists are not requested to have preceding experience with the travel on water. The teacher will give simple instructions, regarding whose the direction to with rudders to follow, the crew members, who are expected, with them as near to consent, as possible. On more difficult ways the leaders are frequent pilots, who will keep by the clearance means.

The tourists can be gotten for the starting point of the route with the helicopter. This reduced not only the development time, to travel to involved only receive but in a number of marks of the cases also it possible to avoid some days on smooth water and in rafts on the most interesting section of the rivers from the criterion of a roof rafter. Independently of it the way complexity and – position must be serious each flössende member over the quality of the personal gear wheel and the quality and reliability of the containers. The raft Design (inflatable cushions mark, around to serve like foot remainders) must be thrown extra security for the tourists approximately over board to guarantee. Each traveler is also expected to carry personal security gear wheel like a life jacket and a crash helmet. Personal security guarantee, must each member of a overwater journey swims.

Rafts means exciting adventures, an emotional release, victory over the water element and over even to a certain extent; it means a tying of the travel members into one CLOSE-kneels crew of the gleichgesinnten people; which does not mean it, is a maintained Outing on water. It has its hardand-fast guidelines, to be followed must all the same which. It is, only by consenting with such requirements that that turned rafts of the box a safe, exciting recovery and pleasure gave a quantity.
