Hella Pedals!

Hella Pedals!

With its patented upper body pedaling system, the 4StrikeBike is unlike any you’ve seen before! It has adjustable handlebar pedals that supplement power to the foot pedals. The special freewheel system allows the bike to be cycled with both arms and legs or with legs alone. Using multiple muscle groups means greater distance capability for touring, or just giving your legs a rest. Talk about a full body workout!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Tricky for Fishies but Good for Us!

Any successful fisherman knows that light is key in making a catch. That’s why so many lures are pretty and glittery, but in deep water they’re really no use as the light only penetrates just below the surface. Problem solved! The Solar Rapala lure harnessed the sun’s energy to power its shimmering LED light, making it not only more effective during daylight but the single best bait to use at night!

Fastest way to be a pool shark!

Fastest way to be a pool shark!

Novus is a revolutionary pool table that’s as smart as it looks. Within that ultramodern aluminum shell are a dedicated touch-screen computer system and sensors that do everything from keep score to coach you on your shot. If you’re like me, you’ll appreciate just learning the rules because I feel like every time my friends and I play they’re different!

The Ultimate Helmet... Period.

The Ultimate Helmet… Period.

Um… why doesn’t this already exist? It’s just… plain… genius. Ideal for urban cyclists, the DORA helmet works in tandem with adaptable Bluetooth handlebar controls to give surrounding vehicles notice of the rider’s intent to turn or brake with universally recognizable light signals and colors. While it’s a great safety solution for the average cyclist, there’s also potential for an adaptation to motorcyclist helmets and the like. Check out the 360 after the jump!

All-Season Headphones

All-Season Headphones

If you’re prepping to hit the slopes this winter then you’ll probably be including an MP3 player and headphones as part of your regular gear. While music can enhance the experience, the uncomfortableness of extended ear-bud wear can be a real pain which is why lots of helmets now have built in headphones. This innovative helmet design takes things a step further, utilizing a wireless headphone system that can also be easily removed when the snow melts off! One pair for all your favorite activities- genius!

Wet N Seriously Wild

Wet N Seriously Wild

This far-out concept by Jurmol Yao takes extreme watersports to an entirely new level. The design falls somewhere between a wakeboard and jet ski, with a propulsion system built directly into the bottom of the board, allowing adrenaline junkies to get serious air or even “board” underwater. How? We’re not sure exactly, but we want it… now.

High Performance Sled

High Performance Sled

Winter is officially here and even those of us in sunny SoCal are looking forward to playing in the snow! Now, if only we could get our hands on New Zealand based design company 4DESIGN’s Stealth-X snow sled. This super lightweight, monocoque sled is made entirely of carbon fiber to enhance its strength. Sitting in a position similar to an F1 car, the rider leans as they would a motorcycle to navigate turns at a top speed of 40MPH. It’s so maneuverable it can be skidded to a stop just like a snowboard. Leave it to the Kiwis!

Snowboard wrist armor delight

Snowboard wrist armor delight

Designer Navik Lal presents a fabulous new look at the protection of the wrists of the hardcore snowboarder. This is Morph Armour, made to create a protective barrier around your wrist while you retain near-full mobility throughout your arms so you can continue to be the sports beast you know you can be. This solution takes on what Lal notes is one of the most common mishaps in the snowboarding world, making the 88% of the snowboarding population think twice about how much of a hinderance safety has to be.

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Recently pre-launched at the Monoco boat show, the Wesp is unlike any jet ski you’ve seen before. Inspired by Formula 1 racing, the craft is characterized by an unorthodox yet functional shape that allows it to cruise gently across the waves or switch into high speed racing mode. In an exhilarating twist, direction is controlled using a body motion steering system where the driver swivels from left to right, similar to how a motorcyclist flicks from side to side to initiate a turn.

Segway of the Sea

Segway of the Sea

The Stingray is a single-rider watercraft designed for both recreational and humanitarian uses. The buoyant saddle and lever combination is driven by a pneumatic propulsion system that converts user generated energy into air flow, transmitting thrust directly into the water without the use of gears or electric circuits. Useful as a mobile flotation device for flood disasters or simply to enjoy a day out on the water!

Bindings Just Got Better

Bindings Just Got Better

The Flow Caiman snowboard binding may be a more minimal approach than other designs on the market, but don’t be fooled, it packs greater functionality into a light design that aims to keep riders from constantly making pit stops to make adjustments. Every component has been redesigned to help the rider get in and out quickly and adjust the bindings without screwdrivers. See how it works!

Classy Beast

Classy Beast

The Dartline 60′ combines superior performance and a refined aesthetic into one dreamy powerboat that’s sure to intrigue. Aggressive shapes, lines and curves are contrasted by a clean, elegant style with impeccable attention to detail. While the perfectly polished wood and white hull/trim complete its sophisticated look, I’d love to see a meaner version in black. I’ll take one of each!

Electro-Kart Action

Electro-Kart Action

Unlike the conventional (and totally passé) gasoline go-karts, the ACTO kart is entirely battery-powered, and of course, boasts zero emissions. Its strong, feather-light, monocoque body has a playful, formula one-like aesthetic that places the driver in the center for enhanced ergonomics, excitement, and protection. Clean and fun!
