Shocks can only get you so far — if you're looking for ultimate comfort on your bike, you need to add suspension to the wheels themselves. That's exactly what Loopwheels (£500; roughly $775) do. These 20" bicycle wheels use conventional hubs with hub brakes and hub wheels, but with a spring system replacing the spokes, providing an unparalleled riding experience by cushioning you from bumps and potholes. Shipping in August.
Forget four wheels — if you want a vehicle that can go wherever is necessary, you need six. Max ATVs ($9,500 and up) have been tearing through the wilderness since 1969, utilizing their six-wheel drive systems and amphibious capabilities to get wherever their owners needed to go. Built in Buffalo, NY, they come in three models — the Max II, which holds two passengers plus cargo, the Max IV, which can hold up to four passengers and slightly less cargo, and the Buffalo, the world's first amphibious dump truck. They may not be as pretty as a new four-wheeler, but when your four-wheeling buddy is stuck on the other side of the creek, you won't care a bit. [Scouted by Ryan]
If you're looking for a lightweight two-wheeled ride, the PG BlackBraid Bike ($TBA) should be on your list. Featuring an innovative full-carbon frame made from braided carbon fiber, it's available in two versions — the urban-commuter Fixie and the distance-ready Touring. It also offers a SLR Tekno saddle, Conti 4000s tires, and Speedplay Nanogram Zero pedals. No matter what model you choose, you'll be getting an all-black ride that's sure to turn heads, whether it's around the neighborhood or out on the road.
