This high-tech helmet features Ergo Fit Pad technology with progressive padding and low-denisty open-cell foam to pull away moisture, the Ergo Hold SL Retention system that offers 6cm of size adjustment with the turn of a dial, and cabon composite reinforcement that allows for larger vent openings without compromising protection.

We often speak of something melding the old and the new, but it's still pretty rare to such a literal example as these Tonke Campers (€95,000-€103,000; roughly $123,000-$133,000). These intriguing vehicles pair a retro, gypsy cart-style camper with a modern Mercedes truck, creating a happy juxtaposition of looks on the outside. On the inside, you'll find a yacht-style interior, with room for two or three people depending on the model, and expected niceties like showers, toilets, kitchens, and beds. Each one is custom designed and built-to-order in the company's workshop, so if you'd like to get your hands on one this summer, you'd best get moving.
