Get the most out of your time on the slopes with the Xon Smart Snowboarding System. It includes load balance sensors in the custom bindings, as well as bend sensors placed at either end of the board, and connects to your phone over Bluetooth LE to let you analyze your rides, seeing stats like the weight balance, board flex, speed, and, thanks to your phone's GPS, the path of your ride. In addition, LED lights in the heels and toes of the bindings let you be seen from farther away and allow you to easily check your riding position in the dark.
You don't need killer waves to surf. You just need the Lampuga Jet-Powered Surfboard. Thanks to an electric jet engine producing 15 hp, it can propel you at speeds of up to 32 mph for sessions of up to 35 minutes. A combination steering belt and thrust control keeps you in command, while the emergency stop system promises not to leave you stranded in the event of a major wipeout.
Unrivaled stability. Added flexibility. And anytime, anywhere wearability. The Nike TW15 Golf Shoe builds on the '14 model in a number of ways, most notably adding Dynamic Flywire into the Flyweave upper for increased stability and support. In a short interview, Tiger told Uncrate that he was seeking to improve both stability and flexibility in this model, so in addition to the Flywire, the shoe's Free-inspired outsole boasts Integrated Traction for increased flexibility, resulting more power. And while the technology inside is advanced, the looks remain true to Tiger's understated style, allowing them to transition easily from the course to the real world — even, as Tiger recently saw, as far as the local mall.
Forget going to the gym — take the gym with you with a pair of Monkii Bars. This versatile workout tool is lightweight and highly portable, using an 18-foot suspension line that tucks inside the handles and a loop to provide you with a pair of handles that can be used for both upper and lower body exercises like pull-ups, dips, push-ups, flys, rows, curls, and more. The best part is you can use them virtually anywhere you can find a door, branch, or other solid, stable surface, meaning you can get your workout in at the office, at the park, or even on the trail.
Any fan of winter sports likely knows the irritation that comes from foggy goggles. Rid yourself of this problem once and for all with Abominable F-Bom Goggles. These one-of-a-kind glasses use patented Klair technology to place a transparent, heat-conductive film between the two-part Carl Zeiss lens, keeping it warm and fog-free. They'll run for up to 7 hours in active mode, or up to seven days in on-demand Boost mode, are available in a variety of colors and with a variety of lenses, and take only one hour to charge up over USB, meaning that by the time lunch break is over, you'll be ready to hit the slopes once more.
Forget the traditional forms of jump testing — with the Vert Wearable Jump Device, you can measure every vertical leap you take, whether it's during a training session or in the heat of a game. The sensor itself is a small black affair that's worn around the waist, and can attach to your clothing via the included clip or be hidden inside a specially-designed belt. Using the high-precision gyroscope and accelerometer, it can give you info about your latest flight via the built-in OLED display, but to get the most out of it, you'll want to pair it to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device using the Bluetooth 4.0 connection and use the companion app to track and share a multitude of stats.
It's damn cold outside and it's not getting warmer anytime soon, so you might as well make the most of it with a Osbe Proton Senior Ski Helmet. The company's flagship model, it features a high-impact resistant shell in your choice of six colors, an integrated, removable visor, a temperature-regulating air ventilation system, a washable plush liner, a micrometric buckle for a precise fit, and a goggle strap on the back for those times when you want superior optics. All you need is some skis or a snowboard, some powder, and a slope.
Tubercles. That's the name for the bumpy area on the fins of humpback whales, and it's also the inspiration for the Nemesis Fins from Speedo. Tubercles create surface area for water to pass over, allowing you to push more water and pick up speed when you need it most. And with square openings named blow valves, water is captured and forced through creating more force on downward kicks. And while it has plenty in common with whales, these were made for you, with superior arch support, extra toe space, and a graduated instep for exceptional comfort.
Far from the synthetic Spaldings you'll find on the shelves of your local sporting goods shop, Unofish Basketballs are luxury affairs that are as enjoyable to look at as they are to play with. They're crafted from Italian tumbled leather and other premium leathers embossed with patterns of alligator, ostrich, python, stingray, and more, giving each ball its own unique feel. These unusual materials are then colored and joined together with a polyurethane rim to create a display-worthy ball that pays homage to the game while still letting you play it.
You can't always make it to the range, but you can make sure you get your swings in anyway with the Range To Go. This portable mat offers three hitting surfaces that simulate the tee, rough, and fairway, all in a design that folds up to about the size of a laptop bag. The surfaces themselves are made from high-grade synthetic turf, the 16-inch width is ideal for helping to promote a proper stance, and the included nylon bag makes it easy to keep with you. For those times when you don't have the space needed to work on longer shots, pack along the Callaway Tri-Ball Hitting Net and swing away.
It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean you need to put your short game on ice. With one of these Brunswick Putting Greens, you can keep your putter hot all winter long. They're available in a variety of sizes — from 2' x 8' all the way up to 4' x 20' — individually handcrafted in the USA from hardwood and advanced artificial turf, and offer between 50 and three million possible break combinations depending on the model, created by moving the manual levers on the sides. Included is a matching putter rack, so you can leave the rest of your clubs stored away until it's time to hit the course.
You're probably (definitely) not going to be the next Michael Jordan, but you can improve your pickup game by putting in some work with the ShotTracker. This intelligent system includes a sensor that hangs on the net and another you slide into your wrist band or sleeve. Link them up with the companion app, and you'll be able to track your shot attempts, makes, and misses, letting you get detailed analysis that you can use with the built-in workouts to identify and fix the holes in your game before your opponent exploits them.
Many of us might not hit the course again 'til 2015, but that doesn't mean you can't work on upgrading the gear in your bag. The TaylorMade R15 Driver is a good place to start. The company's most advanced driver yet, it builds on the SLDR by incorporating a front track system that expands the sweet spot, decreases spin, and moves the center of gravity lower and towards the front. And with dual sliding weights, you can custom tailor the club to match your swing like never before.
Take your time on the powder seriously by hopping aboard an Igneous Custom Snowboard. Handmade in Jackson, Wyoming, these rugged high-performance boards are built layer-by-layer, including hard maple and white ash cores, black sintered graphite bases, oversized hardened steel edges, two layers of stitched triaxial fiberglass, hardwood topsheets, and bulletproof Kevlar to protect from rocks. And since they interview you before making your board, you can be assured it will fit the way you ride unlike any off-the-shelf rig.
You may have seen some nice ping pong tables before, but you've never seen one like this. The TravisMathew Glass Ping Pong Table is what it says on the tin, and even more striking than you'd imagine. The playing surface is a 300-pound sheet of polished edge glass, with service lines on the bottom as to avoid interrupting the smooth top. It's held up by a frame made from 1/8-inch wall structural steel, with milled joints and an auto-quality black paint job. It comes with two custom rackets, a wine bucket, 100 balls, and the satisfaction of knowing that your custom table was handmade and built-to-order in sunny Southern California.
It may have taken 20 years, but a legit hoverboard looks like it's finally here. The Hendo Hoverboard isn't another hoax, it's an actual hoverboard, complete with 4 hover engine housings on the bottom that help respond to your movements. The high-performance design makes this a smooth ride that currently relies on magnets to levitate the board over a metal surface, but the tech continues to improve, and could be ready for other surfaces soon as well.
See the slopes like never before with the new line of Oakley Prizm Goggles. 15 years in the making, the new Prizm lenses use precision color tuning to enhance the human eye's ability to perceive detail in snow that's normally lost with traditional lenses. While normal lenses are developed to provide contrast in a wide variety of conditions, Prizm's snow lenses are focused on enhancing the contrast of the white surface, enabling you to see holes, bumps, and other small details that simply weren't visible before. The lenses are available in three shades — Black Iridium for bright sun, Jade Iridium for a mix of sun and clouds, and Rose for snowy or overcast conditions — and in a wide variety of frame styles, ensuring there's a solution that's right for you and letting you ride or ski with added confidence.
Presented by Oakley. Preview Prizm, their revolutionary new lens technology, here.
It's tough to think of something other than food that goes better with the Thanksgiving holiday than football. After all, many families use the holiday as an opportunity to get out in the backyard and conduct a fun, and sometimes too competitive, game. The Leather Head Thanksgiving Turkey Football is ideal for your Turkey Bowl, featuring a rich, supple leather shell, raw hide laces, and is embossed with a running turkey designed by Jon Contino. It can also be personalized with a family name or message to commemorate the special occasion.
Like everything else, golf technology seems to move at an ever faster pace each year — and the TaylorMade RSi 1 Irons are the latest example. Built to compensate for the fact that 76% of all iron shots are mis-hits struck outside the sweet spot, these new clubs feature Face Slot technology in the 3-8 irons that puts a durable epoxy compound all the way through the club in two slots on the toe and heel. This allows the face to flex more easily, resulting in better ball speed and more consistent distance across the face. Other features include an improved Speed Pocket in the 3-7 irons, the company's thinnest face ever, a new True Temper Reax 90 steel shaft, and a stabilized head structure for improved sound and feel.
