If you're going to go racing down the side of a hill on a bicycle, you'd better make sure it's up to the task. The Mongoose Boot'R ($3,000) certainly qualifies, with features like a new FreeDrive downhill frame offering 210mm of rear wheel travel and a 150mm Maxle dropout, Kenda Excavator downhill tires, Avid Code 5 front and rear brakes, a custom Mongoose SDG Bel Air I-Beam saddle, Funn melt forged pedals, and Mongoose Lock on grips.
A private island is one of the most popular purchases among the world's über-rich, but unfortunately they tend to be stationary. Wally and Hermès teamed up to solve this problem, and the Wally Hermès WHY Yacht ($TBA) is the result. This floating island offers a host of unusual, elegant features such as a 200 square meter master suit with its own 25 meter-wide terrace, five guest suites, a 30 meter "beach" on the ocean-accessible stern, a screening room, music room, open dining room, and a 25m pool around the helipad, as well as a host of green features, including 900 square meters of solar panels, and a diesel-electric propulsion system that, in conjunction with the unique design, saves up to 200 tons of diesel per year.

You know two things when you hear a golf cart is built at the Valmet Automotive factory in Finland (where they make the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster): 1) It's going to be awesome, and 2) It's going to be awesomely expensive. The Garia Golf Cart ($17,500) is definitely both. Designed by Danish designer Anders Lynge, this sexy fairway flyer sports double wishbone front suspension, a built-in refrigerator, hand-stitched seats, hydraulic brakes on all four wheels (with discs in the front and drums at the rear), and custom paint of your choice.
