The HELIOS Core is a performance sensor that mounts on your shoulder pads and uses AI and smart technology to automatically benchmark your skating stride and highlight your strengths and weaknesses to help you Get Better, Faster.
The HELIOS metrics shown below are automatically monitored and calculated by the HELIOS Core device during the session when the athlete is skating (taking strides). The Core uses HELIOS' Stride Recognition Technology (SRT) to understand when the player is in active skating stride which gives a powerful context for delivering performance results to the HELIOS app.
- Stride Speed - the skating speed of the player in units of Miles Per Hour [MPH].
- Agility - the rate of stride or foot speed of the skating player in units of Strides Per Minute [SPM].
- Explosiveness - a measure of 'how quickly' the skating player gets going (e.g. think thrust/propulsion of the first strides) in units of g-force [g].
- Balance - a ratio of Left and Right stride outputs across a session (e.g. what % of strides were Left vs. Right).
- Stride Load - a count of strides for a given session in units of Strides [strides].
- Active Time - the time actively spent skating in units of minutes [min].
- Hustle Score - an intensity rating of this specific practice or game session compared to your typical practice or game session. Rated as Low (LOW), Average (AVG), High (HIGH).
- Points - a number of points calculated from participation and individual performance against your individual baseline.
- Heart Rate - the average heart rate in beats per minute [bpm]. *When a compatible heart rate device model is used.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The HELIOS membership is a service that includes the Helios Core device, access to our mobile app software, and continuously-updated performance insights to help you improve.
HELIOS automatically tracks performance inside the Helios Core device and generates key performance insights in our mobile app.
The Percent Rankings by Birth Year are continuously updated by a process that runs each night in the HELIOS cloud. It takes all of your data and compares it to all the data for everyone else in your birth year, then we tell you where you stand for each metric. This is you vs. all players in your birth year.
The app will automatically start to show Percent Rankings by Birth Year results once it is confident that it has enough data to represent your performance. This typically takes your first 5-10 sessions.
Highlighting your strengths and weaknesses is just one of our powerful features to help you improve your game.
While the Helios Core itself does not track Heart Rate (HR) metrics, you can set it up to connect to an off-the-shelf HR strap or other device and we'll automatically grab the HR data with your skating performance data to show you a combined result in the Helios App. Think of Helios as bringing all the context you've never had when staring at graphs for beats per minute (bpm). Once setup you'll only need to use the Helios App for everything.
To setup one of the currently supported HR devices go inside our app to Settings > Devices and click the '+' in the top right.

The Leaderboard, located on the Social tab inside the HELIOS app is a points-based ranking of weekly, monthly and all-time totals.
Players earn points in two ways - fixed points for completing a practice or game session (participation), and, variable points for how their performance for that specific practice or game compares to their individual baseline. The points are automatically computed at the end of each session along with a Hustle Score during the syncing process with the Helios cloud.

This game-changing device was developed from the ground up by our team over several years to revolutionize performance improvement.
The Helios Core was designed to be mounted on and used with your existing protective shoulder pads.
Yes. Both the Twist Mount and Strap Mount are very secure when mounted correctly.
For the Twist Mount, we spent months working with the world's leading manufacturer of tapes and adhesives to create a solution that would could be easily applied with hand pressure, hold strong during impacts and even be removed with a peeling approach if necessary.
For the Strap Mount, the included strap uses a standard hooks-and-loops approach (without naming the brand we all know) to securely wrap around a pillar on the center front or center back of the shoulder pads to hold it snuggly in place.
The Helios Core is wirelessly charged using a USB-powered wireless charging pad included in the box.
