You definitely don't need to jump out of the back of a plane to use a Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike ($775-$850), but you'd look a lot more badass if you did. These are the same bikes used by American military paratroopers, so you know they're built to handle punishment, while retaining the ability to collapse into a small, portable package. This makes them ideal for stashing in the trunk of your car, boat, RV, or plane — any vehicle where space is at a premium — and then quickly deploy them with no need for tools.
Turn your hipster-street-cred up to 11 with Pure Fix Glow Bikes ($400). These deceptively-minimalist, fixed-gear road bikes have a surprisingly attention-getting feature — at night their solar-activated paint glows bright, neon green (one hour of time in the sun equals one hour of day-glo at night). Designed for urban travel on flat roads, these bikes have front caliper brakes and 700x28 tires for a great compromise between speed and comfort. Choose from several models, including the hotel, the kilo, the micro kilo, and the zulu.
When you combine 40 years experience making performance bicycle components with 30 years spent working with advanced fibers for race cars, you get the Specialized S-Works x McLaren Venge Bike ($TBA). This bike represents the ideal intersection of lightness, aerodynamics, and stiffness that only a partnership of this caliber could produce. Remarkably, the frame weighs in at just under two and a quarter pounds, thanks to a sophisticated carbon fiber construction that shares design and testing techniques with F1 machines. A one-piece bottom bracket and chain stay, a tapered steer tube, and full internal cable routing contribute to its sleek design, helping make this the world's fastest street-legal bike.
We all know there's nothing like the feeling of wind in your hair when you're tearing down the road at top speed, but for safety-conscious cyclists, helmets too often get in the way. The Bern Allston Helmet ($80) has 16 vents throughout the helmet and a removable liner system that lets your head actually breathe. In addition to superior ventilation, this helmet weighs a scant 13 ounces, making it considerably lighter than most bike helmets, while still maintaining structural rigidity. It's available in several colors, including black, gray, white, and green, and comes with a bill to keep sun and rain out of your eyes.
Don't let its aggressive outward appearance fool you — belowdecks, the Wally 55 Powerboat ($2.4 million) is every bit a luxury sports cruiser. Available with two or three cabins, and space to accommodate a crew member, it can comfortably sleep up to five passengers. A fully-appointed galley and several restrooms with showers mean you don't have to leave the comforts of home when you take to the sea. Four Volvo IPS600 engines producing 435 horsepower apiece push this yacht through the water at an impressive pace of 40 knots. The deck has plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing (concealed by a wraparound windscreen), and a hydraulic swim ladder makes a perfect launch point for taking a dip.
