Velocitek's newest product, The Velocitek Shift, takes some of the challenging aspects of racing and makes them simple for you to understand. The Velocitek Shift allows you to see shifts at a single glance. With big numbers and bold arrows, you can easily see how much you are headed or lifted. The numbers themselves, are 1.5" high (38mm) and can easily be read from over 100 ft (30m) away. The Shift's high contrast LCD will also show up crystal clear through your polarized sunglasses. The user interface on the Shift is simple and works well under the harshest conditions due to its oversized buttons that allow you store port and starboard reference angles on the fly.

The Shift does not use any GPS technology. For the most conservative one design classes, the Shift even comes with a static-cling label that covers the wind shift indicator.

9-Axis solid-state sensor.

The Shift uses a combination of solid-state accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetic sensors to completely track the orientation of your boat in 3 dimensions. The result is aerospace-grade heading indication that is smoother and more responsive than any other tactical compass on the market.
