Designed in New York City and built in Taiwan from steel alloy and aluminum, the Martone Mia Bike is a simple, good-looking way to get around town. It uses the same SRAM Automatix two-gear transmission and coaster break as the company's flagship model, yet is both smaller and lighter — as little as 11 lbs, in face. The 20" wheels are home to cushy tires that provide a smooth, stable ride, and the handlebars can be optionally outfitted with a smaller basket for hauling small goods. Available with red, black, white, or brown details on a white frame, all with a signature red chain.
Inspired by racing helmets of the '70s, the Montblanc Urban Spirit Motorcycle Helmet is a fine example of simplicity done right. Its all-black looks hide the finer details of the design, such as the perforated leather that allows the shell's reflective coating to shine through, the smooth lower portion and central stripe, and the signature Montblanc star emblem on the hardware. Available in full-face and open versions.
Combining old school craftsmanship with a strong devotion to the environment, Arbor Groundswell Skateboards bring the sea to dry land with a series of green boards. Handmade from seven plies of sustainably grown maple and topped with a premium wood top sheet, the deck is finished with eco friendly water-based sealers and a recycled crushed glass spray-on grip. Each piece features a map of a different major coastline from around the globe, created by an Arbor artist. Available in six different shapes ranging from mini-cruisers to longboards, every board comes complete with Sucrose Initiative Wheels, Double Shield ABEC 5 bearings, and Paris or Gullwing Trucks. Emphasizing on green, a portion of every sale helps to protect and restore the Koa forests of Hawaii.
Its official rollout isn't until January of 2018, but if the final version of the Lilium Jet is anything like the previews, it's going to find a place in a lot of hangars/garages. Powered by a series of electric turbines producing 435hp, it takes off and lands vertically, making it possible to fly directly from a home with a generous yard to a downtown helipad. Once in the air, it's easy to fly thanks to computer-assisted controls, requires only a sport pilot license to fly, and can carry two passengers and up to 440 lbs of gear up to 300 miles away at speeds up to 250 mph.
Living in a van down by the river wouldn't be as bad as it sounds if you were shacking up in a DIY Campervan. Built by filmmaker Zach Both as a way to both live and work anywhere in the country, this decade old Chevy cargo van has been converted into a cozy, modern rolling accommodation. The interior was heavily influenced by contemporary architecture, with a futon bed, a kitchen with a stove, hinged side panels that let in fresh air and natural light yet offer privacy at night, and solar panels on the roof that help power the fridge, Wi-Fi network, and home theater. Best of all, Both has compiled a free manual so you can build your own using nothing but common tools, a little grit, and, of course, a beat-up old van.
In partnership with Ridley Bikes, Belgian architect Pierre Lallemand is using his design talents to cross over into new territory with a line of bicycles. Ecce Opus Bikes are breaking the mold of traditional angular frames with a more sculpted form. The Cruise model pairs its futuristic frame with brown leather and chrome details to add a vintage aesthetic, while the Sport embraces its modern design with matte accessories. Both come in carbon fiber with a glossy black finish, Brooks saddle and grips, and 11-speed Shimano Alfine shifter. If a warmer palette of walnut, maple, and pine sounds more up your alley, a hand-made wooden version is also in the works.
Inspired by the shape of an arrow, the Black Swan Superyacht is a sleek a vessel as you'll find. The aluminum exterior is done in black, a color that's extended throughout the ship, with different textures and finishes the main differentiators in the interior rooms. Two forward balconies with glass railings provide outstanding views, while the aft deck is home to a large beach club and pool, with stepped water access in the back. It can accommodate up to 12 guests, not including the master suite, and has a bank of four engines producing up to 23,172 hp, good for a cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 28. And should have trouble docking the 200+ foot beast, you can always move to and from the mainland via helicopter, and park it on the dedicated helipad on top.
Offering a solid mix of performance and capacity, the De Antonio D33 Yacht is a striking weekend cruiser. At nearly ten meters long, it can accommodate up to 10 people, with sundecks at the bow and stern and two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen underneath. It's powered by two hidden engines producing up to 350 hp each, with features including LED lighting, on-deck shower, and an optional 12-inch touchscreen GPS navigation system, and comes in three styles: standard, sport, or "classy". Available in partially-covered Cruiser or Open configurations, both of which feature the vessel's signature angular styling.
When faux-hoverboards burst on to the scene — in quite literal fashion — we knew there was something familiar about them. They looked like a Segway without the handle. Now the originator is trying its hand with the Segway MiniPro. Unlike cheaper-built boards, it uses precision sensors and a unique knee control bar to make it easy to ride, which is good since it can hit 10 mph while traveling up to 14 miles per charge. It also has built-in automatic headlights, LED taillights, and most importantly, intelligent algorithms that adapt to your riding style.
With plenty of power and a rugged powder-coated steel frame, the Super 73 Electric Bike gets you around in style. It's powered by a 1,000 watt motor, letting it hit a top speed over 25 mph — perfect for urban exploring — and has disc brakes to bring you to a stop safely. The 4.75-inch wide tires good for most terrain, the removable battery pack has 20 miles of range without pedaling, and the thumb throttle and LCD display make it easy to control. It's finished off with a cup holder, bottle opener, and USB charging port, and is available in a rainbow of hues.
Part observation deck, part watercraft, all luxury. The Shaddai Mega Yacht is named after a Hebrew word meaning God or omnipotent, which you'll most certainly feel as you relax in the owner's cabin infinity pool nearly 125 feet in the air. Down below this private perch are a main deck with another infinity pool, which has a transparent bottom that becomes the roof of the 300 square meter beach club. At 150 meters long, it offers plenty of room for guests while ensuring privacy for the owner, and will undoubtedly be the center of attention wherever you choose to dock it.
'Tis the season for sleeping under the stars and reestablishing your relationship with Mother Nature. The Base Camp Trailer is a towable survival station that lends a little bit of luxury to the backcountry. They start with a cargo trailer, fabricated with a steel tube frame and sheet steel body. A 250 watt solar pannel rides on the roof to power the water heater, LED light towers, and whatever you can plug in. If you need room for kayaks or a rooftop tent, you can opt for a 120 watt pannel mounted on the back. A camp chef's kitchen rolls out of the side and is equipped with a sink, gas grill, magnetic knife and spice rack, and storage for your pots and pans. Keep clean, even in the middle of nowhere, thanks to a built in shower with hot and cold controls and a pull out rod with curtain. Every trailer is completely customizable, so whether you're camping by the lake or surviving the zombie apocalypse, you can always be prepared for anything.
Both exceedingly rare and truly groundbreaking, this Plymouth Orchard Tractor is a display-worthy piece of agricultural history. The only Orchard model of the 214 built, it's literally one of a kind, but that's not it's real claim to fame. Instead, that comes from the fact that it was the first tractor to be designed for use with rubber tires instead of the studded steel wheels used before. Lightweight and powered by a Hercules IXB engine, it could hit speeds of up to 25 mph — something that drew the ire of Chrysler's lawyers before learning that the company built a car in 1910. It, like the tractor, was named after the place it was built: Plymouth, OH.
Whether it's a temporary injury or permanent disability, the fact is being bound to a wheelchair is hard enough without it being suited to your body. The Go 3D-Printed Wheelchair promises to conform to your build, using your measurements to precisely 3D print both the seat and foot bay to match. Everything from the backrest height and angle to seat curvature and center of mass is taken into account, and that's before you select the side bars or guards and pattern that best suit your needs.
When you've been around for 150 years, it's important to mark that milestone with something special. This Brooks 150th Anniversary Saddle was created to celebrate, featuring all copper frames with hand-hammered copper rivets and black leather. The B33 was originally designed back in 1938 for heavy duty cycling, and is the only Brooks model that still features rear coil springs and a front loop. Great for bike commuters and a fitting release to mark 150 years of craftsmanship.
The result of two years of design and development, the Heroin Bike is a racing bike that's as aesthetically pleasing as it is performance-oriented. It's inspired by Le Corbusier's "Modulor" concept of ideal proportions, and designed and assembled in France using parts from expert Italian carbon fiber craftsmen. Those include the handmade, high-modulus carbon fiber frame, the handmade carbon monocoque seat post, the custom-built carbon fiber handlebar, and high-temperature carbon fiber rims. It's all hooked to a Shimano Dura-Ace 11-speed gear-shifting system and direct mount dual pivot brakes, and is limited to just 349 matte black units.
With an innovative design and sturdy materials, the Stair Rover Longboard is the first skateboard made to tackle the most challenging urban environments. As the name suggests, the board is able to glide down stairs, thanks to a V-frame design that lets the eight wheels bounce up and down independently, conforming to different terrain. Its chassis is made from thermoplastic with shock absorbers for a smooth ride, the custom aluminum trucks are designed to accommodate sharp turns, and the ply maple deck has an integrated handle that makes it easy to carry.
Summer is around the corner. And if you're going to carve your way down to the corner store or your corner office, it might as well be on a board as beautiful as the Woolsey x Uncrate Land Cruiser. In our latest collab, we worked with Sean Woolsey, the Los Angeles woodworking guru of jigsaws and jointers, to create the limited edition all-black board. Made of ebonized walnut, the deck is topped with recycled crushed glass grip tape and comes ready-to-roll with Abec 7 bearings, black OJ wheels, and black Bennet Vector trucks. Half art piece, half beater board, you can make it a daily driver or hang it on your wall. Limited to 25 boards.
Inspired by the handmade racing gloves of the '60s and '70s, these Velomacchi Speedway Gloves mix vintage style with smart new features. The palms are made from soft deerskin, giving you both control and dexterity, while the backs are built using scuff-resistant goatskin and have TPU finger guards that double as goggle wipes. They're finished off with reinforced brass rivets on the outer impact zone, conductive tips on the index finger and thumb for using touch screens, and secure Velcro closures.
Weighing in at under 1,200 pounds yet still offering everything you need for a short stay in the wilderness, the Timberleaf Camping Trailer is a smart alternative to traditional campers. The exterior is made from anodized aluminum, with colors on the side, clear anodizing on the top, and a rear hatch that opens for access to the handsome birch galley with sink, birch cooler, and colorful countertops. On the inside, there's a custom-made "Colorado" queen mattress, a large skylight, and plenty of storage. Best of all, you don't need a massive SUV to haul it, so you can go explore places larger rigs simply won't fit.
Forget the trailer and landings — with the GoBoat, you have a personal fishing boat that can fit in your backseat or trunk. It has a round design with an inflatable ring around the edge and a stable platform in the center that supports both standing and seated positions, as well as any simple trolling motor. The result is a versatile, highly-portable watercraft that sets up in minutes, doesn't require a dock, and also doubles as a bumper boat for less serious on-the-water fun. Made in the USA.
Airstream's brand is synonymous with its iconic aluminum trailers. With the Airstream Nest, you're going to need to add molded fiberglass to the mix. The result of the Ohio-based company's purchase of Nest Caravans, production on these sleek two-tone campers is set to begin next year with a 16-foot model. By using an all-fiberglass monocoque design, the trailer has plenty of room and a modern interior yet weighs roughly 2,400 pounds, making it towable by smaller vehicles like crossovers and compact pickups.
Most yachts are built to sail the waters of the Caribbean or Mediterranean. The Kilkea Superyacht is designed to go wherever you want. Based on a supply-vessel platform, it measures nearly 270 feet long with a 59-foot beam, and has a steel hull certified for operation in light ice. Yet it still offers resort-class accommodations for up to 36 guests, multiple swimming pools, options like a submarine dock, underwater observation room, or on-deck soccer pitch, and, of course, a helipad with hangar. It can travel for up to a month without making landfall, has a top speed of 15.4 knots, and a cruising speed of 12 knots, making it an ideal mobile base for the adventurous mogul.
Marrying a snowmobile-style track with a cafe racer-like posture, the Snoped is perhaps the sleekest snow speeder around. Its monolithic black aluminum body with exposed screws, puffy black seat, and vertical headlight and taillight looks like something straight out of the first order, while the lightweight chassis, 90cc motor, and Chrysler Sno-runner track ensures it's more than a mere prop. Sadly no word on whether designer Joey Ruiter or builder Jeff Long plan to make more.
Dubbed the "Silver Arrow of the Seas", the Mercedes-Benz Granturismo Arrow Yacht translates the three-pointed star's car design language to the water. Measuring roughly 46 feet from stern to bow, the boat has classic automotive proportions and a hybrid design that combines the feeling of an open boat with the benefits of a hull cabin vessel. The interior, which can accommodate up to 10 people, is lined in eucalyptus wood, and has an upscale bathroom, separate dressing room, and a host of luxe standard features like a wine "cellar", ice-making machine, high-end audio system and air conditioning. Of course, it's no slouch performance-wise, either, with two diesel engines providing a total output of 960 hp, giving it a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed over 40, depending on the load. Just 10 boats will be made, with a limit of one per country.
Drawing on the term for bob-tailing a motorcycle, the Savage Bobber Airplane brings a high amount of customization to the air. Much like a one-off bike, each plane is customized to fit its owner, with a huge number of options available, including the color of the engine and open fuselage, type of luggage holder, style of seat, propeller, engine add-ons, types of instrument panels, and more. It's based on the Savage Classic, so you know it's reliable, and no matter which options you choose, it'll be powered by a Rotax engine, and include 10 hours of ground school plus five flight hours with the company's factory trained CFIs.
Based on a Sea-Doo RXT-X 260 RS, the Mansory Black Marlin Jet Ski is a murdered out sea speeder. Its Rotax engine gets a hefty performance boost up to 550 hp, while the aggressive lines of the carbon fiber shell lets it drop over 20 pounds of weight at the same time as it improves the ride's looks. Equally suited to pairing with a black SUV for hauling to and from the lake or with a stealthy mega yacht, it can carry up to three passengers at a time.
Part ATV, part plane, the Skyrunner MK 3.2 promises to let you explore the wilderness both from the ground and from the air. On land, the go kart-like design and Rotax engine handles rugged terrain with ease, while ram-air parafoil wing technology lets it hit speeds of 55 mph in the air, reaching a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet. It can transition from one to the other quickly, and can takeoff and land quickly, enabling access to a number of areas unreachable by traditional aircraft. And since it only requires a Sports Pilot license, it's far more accessible than traditional aircraft while still allowing you to bring a passenger along for the ride.
Normally if your yacht goes underwater, it's a disaster. With the Migaloo Submersible Yacht, it happens all the time. This incredible watercraft combines the luxury of a yacht with the underwater capabilities of a U.S. Navy submarine. It comes in five models, ranging in size from the 72-meter M2 to the massive, city-like 283-meter M7. Each is built to military safety standards, uses a modern acrylic pressure hull for a wide-open interior space, offers incredible views of the ocean, and is one of the most private spaces you can find — after all, not many people are going to be looking for you under the surface of the water. Best paired with one of the company's Kokomo private floating habitats.
