Roundup: J Skis TP, Industry 9 Hub Volume Adjusters, and WNDR Alpine’s New Dating App

As a gearhead, early April is always a time to look forward to, with the greatest minds in the industry really pushing the limits of innovation with new products. Just today, we saw some revolutionary new designs come out from all corners of the outdoor industry. Isn’t it funny how they all coordinated their launch dates? Hmmm….

Let’s take a look at the latest and greatest tech:

Jason Levinthal (always a disrupter) recently joined the effort to manufacture essential supplies for the American people: toilet paper by subscription, mailed directly to your home. He says, "Skiing comes and goes with the seasons, but butt wiping never stops! I have over four decades of experience using Toilet Paper and am proud to be able to offer some of the best on the market. JTP™️ will be available exclusively on Jskis.com and start shipping next week, so place your pre-orders now!" Get wiping!

For you bike nerds out there, Industry Nine have listened to your calls for help! Really, it’s surprising how they even heard you over how loud their damn hubs are. With a brand-new volume adjust knob for their beloved Hydra hubs, you can now set the loudness of your rear hub to whatever you please. I mean, don’t we all want another dial to turn on our bikes?

Finally, for all of you single folk stuck inside right now scrolling the same tired dating app, WNDR Alpine has a fresh one for you: TNDR Alpine. Need a new hut mate, or someone to show up on your next socially-distanced backcountry adventure? This one seems like a surefire solution.

Unsurprisingly, he's got his backcountry kit pretty dialed, and was kind enough to make a video detailing exactly what he packs for an average day of ski touring. Some of the things are standards that just about everyone brings, and some are under-the-radar lifesavers.
