It's tough to beat the calorie burn from jumping rope, and now you can train and track at the same time. Tangram's Smart Rope combines form and function with comfortable 45 degree angled handles to help make this age old workout interesting. Sure, there are other smart ropes out there that provide tracking, but none of them have a strand of bright white LEDs that you can view while you jump. View your jump count, calories burned, or the duration of your workout as the rope swings in front of you. When you're done, the data is all transmitted via Bluetooth to an app on your smartphone. The only thing you have to supply is some sweat and an epic workout montage soundtrack.
No matter how advanced the boot, there's always been something between the player and the ball. Namely, laces. Adidas Ace Purecontrol Laceless Soccer Cleats use an innovative Primeknit upper to abandon laces altogether, giving you unthinkable control and a sock-like fit that instantly molds to your foot. The lightweight Sprintframe outsole provides stability, the short studs give you excellent traction on firm ground, and a thin layer of raised dots on the upper helps keep the ball attached to your feet for more precise dribbling.
Manufactured in Italy, the new Rapha Pro Team Shadow Jersey acts like a protective shield on the backs of riders. With a durable water repellent finish water just rolls off the jersey during a downpour. It's also stretch woven so body heat can escape from the compressed aero fit. 3/4 length sleeves give your arms more protection, while three rear cargo pockets provide storage space while holes in the bottom of each allows rainwater to drain. A huge upgrade from most racing rainwear options with great protection from the weather on unpredictable race days.
The latest wave of hoverboards to hit the market are cool, but each one requires a conductive surface to work. The Arcaboard works everywhere.

Ride with the built in stabilization system using your smartphone, or do your best Marty McFly impression and control it with your body. It's one step closer to the full realization of a technology we've all been dreaming about for decades.
Get a gift for yourself this holiday while helping out kids in need with the Spalding x Reigning Champ One For One Basketball.
