4 EXTREME SPORTS ACCESSORIES
1 / ATC5K ACTION CAMERA
Attach this video camera to your handlebars, helmet or harness, press record and get ready to upload your exploits later on YouTube. There’s 32MB of memory, plus an SD card to expand it further, should your adventures take on an epic turn.
2 / OLYMPUS MJU TOUGH-6010
Shockproof to 1.5m, waterproof to 3m and freezeproof to -10°C, there’s not much else you could chuck at this camera! The tap control gives you access to basic functions, which is especially handy if you’re underwater or wearing ski gloves.
3 / SHAKE-POWERED TORCH
Halfway up a mountain, the last thing you want is to run out of batteries. An essential piece of kit, just 45 seconds of shaking this torch equals five minutes of light. Kinetic energy creates the power, while the LED bulb ensures it lasts as long as possible.
4 / LAND ROVER S1
Built to withstand more than your average mobile mishap, this phone can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, and is dust, shock and drop proof. It also boasts a reassuringly long battery life, with each charge netting you up to 11.5 hours’ talk time.
