Str8 compass entry prize draw

Be in to win a Str8 Compass worth NZ$145!

Get your entry in before 31 December 2018 for the NZ Orienteering Championships at Easter 2019 and you will be in for a chance to win this innovative compass from Str8.


Designed by Australian Orienteer, Warren Key, the Str8 Compass is one of the most original thumb compass designs on the market. Combining precision and speed, it was born from a desire to improve navigational accuracy specifically for Orienteering. Optimising the performance of the needle and getting the balance between speed and stability has been a critical design focus. All factors have been considered to get it right including capsule dimensions, fluid movement and viscosity, needle shape & dynamics, and pressure rates. All have been re-mastered with the personal knowledge and the latest technology.
