When you hit the trail for a race or training session, your health is essential. But the helmet you strap on shouldn't be something you're always aware of, and the Forefront Helmet from Smith certainly meets that standard. It features lightweight Aerocore construction with Koroyd that creates a low volume helmet with ventilated protection. Your sunglasses, goggles, or POV camera can easily be integrated, and it's available with MIPS in select colors.
We think a lot about how our bike looks, or how well it can handle our commute. And while that stuff is vital and present here, the makers of the Speedvagen Urban Racer Bicycle want you to instead focus on how fun their new bike will be to ride. Available in Matte Army Green or Hot Pink, the Urban Racer is made in the U.S.A. in small batches and is light but strong, featuring a steel frame that is 4-6 times stronger than standard steel tubing. You also get a coaster brake, a two-speed internal SRAM hub, and a Fabric Scoop Ti rails saddle.
It can't bring you beers like that insane Artoo mini fridge, but it can put a smile on your face. The Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid follows in the footsteps of the Sphero-based BB-8, letting you control the OG Astromech Droid from your phone. This highly-detailed toy transitions smoothly from tripod to bipod stance, has working front and rear lights, and an integrated speaker that emits all the beeps and boops the beloved character is known for. It can also interact with other Star Wars Sphero droids, and will even react to the films as you watch them.
It's not just the Ultimate Lego Star Wars collectible. It's arguably the most desirable Lego set in existence. Clocking in at 7,541 pieces, the new Lego Ultimate Collector's Series Millennium Falcon is the biggest Lego set in history and comes in a box to match. Insanely detailed, it has multiple interior sections, can easily be swapped between the configuration seen in The Empire Strikes Back and the one from the new trilogy, and as such comes with ten minifigs representing the crew members from each — including both young and old Han Solos. Should its price seem like a deterrent, consider that its predecessor, released in 2007 and missing over 2,000 pieces from this set, consistently sells for over a grand on eBay.
Powered by the sun and the wind, the sCarabane Rotating Camper is modular, movable, and self-sufficient. The rectangular caravan measures in at just 25.6-feet-long while on the road, but upon arriving at its destination, it unfolds into a sprawling tiny home. This feature adds an outdoor living area with a retractable awning on one end and a pair of bedrooms on the other, flanking a central dry bath, kitchen, and dining booth. The structure sits on a circular pod, enabling the camper to rotate 360-degrees as it tracks the sun to heat water, while a vertical wind turbine provides electricity, allowing you to set up camp just about anywhere.

Inspired by Batman's mask, the Gotham Project Superyacht is as distinct as the Caped Crusader himself. The vessel is a collaborative effort from designer Ivan Erdevicki, Dutch shipyard Icon Yachts, Van Oossanen Naval Architects, and broker Harry Bristow-Holmes, and measures 150 feet of black-clad luxury. Powered by a pair of 2,000 hp MTU engines, she has a top speed of 26 knots, a cruising speed of 12 knots, Transatlantic range, and an aluminum hull and superstructure to tackle large waves. Inside, you'll find a custom glass wine cellar, a gymnasium, and five cabins to host you and up to nine guests.
No one wants to carry a toolbox into the wilderness. With the Adventure Mate Multi-Tool, you don't have to. Crafted from high-quality carbon rolled steel, this all-in-one implement has a handle that serves as storage for the 6.7-inch saw blade on the go and connects to the spade head, hammer, and hatchet when needed. One end of the saw blade also has a curved hook that works as a stake puller and bottle opener (can't have a multitool without one), and the whole thing packs neatly into a heavy canvas holster. Available in silver or stone washed black.
Most yachts are built to look as futuristic as possible. The Hartman Livingstone 24 Yacht is happily inspired by the past. In a nod to classic cruisers, the 79-foot vessel's exterior wouldn't look out of place in the 1930s. Unlike those old boats, it hides a host of modern amenities beneath its retro exterior. Those include four staterooms with room for up to nine passengers, a kitchen, bar, dining, and living areas, a pair of 345 hp MAN engines, and state-of-the-art navigation.
When you're backpacking or camping, space is king — so any tool that can do multiple jobs is welcome. The Vargo Dig Dig Tool is a perfect example. Crafted from titanium, it's both lightweight and sturdy, with serrated edges that slice easily through both the ground and small tree roots. Its U-shaped design won't dig into your hand when you're digging into the earth and holds firmly when functioning as a stake.
DT's original Smart Putter was more of a training tool than a club you'd put in the bag, with a built-in surface level meant to help you read the greens. The new DT Premium Putter removes the level but leaves the solid feel intact. Its high-grade stainless steel head features a large opening that helps with balance and makes alignment a little easier, while the rubber grip provides secure handling even in less-than-ideal conditions. It's available for both right- and left-handed players and arrives with an embroidered leather head cover.
This structured duffel bag is designed to be by your side through everything, with everything you need. In classic Filson fashion, the exterior twill is water and abrasion resistant and made to stand up to nearly a lifetime of use. The large U-shaped top makes finding gear inside easy and at-a-glance, while the attached nylon-lined collapsible dry bag keeps wet and muddy gear separate from the main compartment. While the exterior of the bag is made from Filson's classic rugged twill, the interior of the bag is lined with soft 6 oz. nylon to protect your things from being scuffed or damaged. A removable and quick-drying webbed nylon shoulder strap makes carrying easier when fully packed.
Width: 20" / Height: 13" / Depth: 10-3/8"
Adapting tried-and-true classic design to cover modern needs, this Filson bag will stand up to just about anything and look great the entire time. The rugged twill and leather bag, available blacked out or in Filson's timeless tan hue, features interior and exterior pockets for organizing smaller items, as well as the ubiquitous padded compartment for a laptop up to 15 inches wide. A removable and adjustable 46" bridle leather strap is also included for carrying over the shoulder, and this classic design will complement your suit--or your flannel and jeans--through all the seasons to come.
Width: 16.5" / Height: 14" / Depth: 7.5"
In our search for a more customized sound and fit, we've dialed-in a pair of headphones from Copenhagen-based AIAIAI tuned by Uncrate editors. These TMA-2 modular headphones provide a warm, balanced sound that's perfect for extended listening. With a focus on clear low-end dynamics, the headphones unleash deep bass with a wide sound stage and high isolation — meaning, your Run The Jewels and Com Truise tracks will sound their best ever. The speaker units are engineered with a 40mm titanium-coated driver to reduce distortion, and built with a fully sealed housing, providing full and rich sound. Up top is a reinforced headband with super comfortable PU leather padding, while memory foam PU leather-covered earpads and a coiled cable that extends up to 10 feet round out the pair. Pretty much every surface is coated with thin rubber to give a matte look with a soft-touch feeling.
No apps. No camera. No nonsense. Designed by Jasper Morrison for Switzerland-based Punkt, the MP 01 Phone is meant to put the spotlight back where it belongs: on calls and messages. The 2-inch LCD display — protected by Gorilla Glass — is ideal for dealing with SMS messages, and the built-in noise cancellation ensures that your conversations sound great. It does have Bluetooth, since hands-free setups are handy, but without the need for a bevy of other radios, battery life is fantastic (it only needs charging every few weeks, instead of every few hours), and the soft-touch finish and angled back plate make it a pleasure to hold. Not to mention, we could all use the occasional social-media detox. In Punkt's own words, this is offline as the new luxury.
Height: 4.58" / Width: 2" / Thickness: 0.6" / Weight: 3.1oz

Made from super-strong and corrosion-resistant Grade 5 titanium and lighter than a few spare granola bars, these backcountry utensils from Feastform are just what you need for trailside meal prep. The spatula and tongs are highly packable, with an origami-inspired nesting design that allows the tongs to disassemble when space is limited, while a small spatula gives you another, even smaller option. Finished with durable Technora paracord-wrapped handles and cotton drawstring carrying bags.
Thanks to regulations that have made motorcycle plates prohibitively expensive and scooter licenses affordable for everyone, the custom scene in China has shifted from the former to the latter. The Shanghai Customs Honda eCub Scooter is a perfect example. Using the venerable Cub as a base, this electric vehicle has all its wiring hidden, including the battery packs and controller, which sit in a custom box where the engine used to be. It's controlled via a motorcycle-style throttle and is also equipped with a front headlight, LED brake lights and blinkers, and chunky tires on 18-inch aluminum rims. It can carry an average-sized adult up over 30 miles at speeds up to 30 mph, and since it retains the holders for the rear foot pegs, it's easy to add a second seat for passengers.
Sturdy, structured, and insulated enough to earn a multi-day ice retention rating, the Icemule Boss backpack is the answer to your backcountry cooling needs. Rather than dragging a similarly-sized cooler across whatever terrain you're on, or attempting to roll it along a sandy beach, you can sling this cooler onto your back and let the engineered straps and padding take over. The Boss features a wide-mouth opening for easy packing and unpacking, a waterproof outer layer, organizational pockets inside, and plenty of straps and clips on the outside so it can be tied down wherever you need it.
To celebrate their 25th Anniversary, Riese & Müller unveiled the third edition of one of the most versatile e-bikes on the market. The Delite line adds the GT Signature to its ranks complete with 27.5" wheels, wide tires, Control Technology for stability, and powerful dual battery technology. This doubles the bike's range and combined with Bosch Performance drive — which provides pedal assistance of up to 300% — the Delite GT is one of the most impressive e-bikes we've come across.
Tiny enough to fit in your pocket, important enough to save your life. So goes the spiel for the MSR Trailshot Water Filter. This highly portable implement filters out 99.9% of protozoa and bacteria, and can handle up to one liter every minute. It also lets you drink directly from streams and lakes — no bottle required — and lasts up to 2,000 liters, or more than enough to keep you alive for a couple of years, at least.
Entirely modular and available in an array of configurations, the Fiat Ducato Camper Van is ready for your next adventure, no matter what your needs. This versatile vehicle comes in three different wheelbases, four lengths, and three heights, with eight volume options. The square base shape lets you make the most of the load compartment, whether you need it loaded with technical gear or creature comforts, and the tight turning radius and adjustable steering make it feel more like a car than a truck while you're traveling to your next campsite.
With a clever name and striking angular form, the Mackenrow Ping Pong Table encourages you to move your matches from the game room to your main living space. Crafted by San Luis Obispo's Jory Brigham Design, the regulation-sized table is made primarily from Walnut, including the base, net hardware, and playing surface. It's finished with brass inlay, an orange side accent strip, and Danish weave netting.
The company famous for its use of vulcanized fiberboard is giving a new material a chance in the Globe-Trotter Carbon Trolley Case. The world's first colored carbon fiber material, Hypetex, replaces the fiberboard as the main component of the 20-inch case. Done in a cool silver, it's accented by the company's signature leather straps, with corners done in burgundy or black. The case is part of a series of collaborations done in celebration of the brand's 120th anniversary and is limited to just 120 examples.
The range of electric skateboards continues to evolve, and with the release of these two boards from Kuickwheel, it's taking a big step forward. The Serpent-C is the smallest electric skateboard on the market, with a 300-watt in-wheel motor that can go up to 11 mph for up to 6 miles. It's controlled using a force-sensitive remote control, and at only 18 inches long, you can toss it into your pack with ease. The Serpent-W, on the other hand, is a 40-inch longboard that can go up to 25 mph with a range of nearly 10 miles and even includes safety lighting for peace of mind during a nighttime trip. Both boards give riders the option of eco or sports mode based on their experience and use high-quality materials that are built to last.
The Grayl Ultralight operates similarly to a French press, letting you fill it with water, plunge the filter down, and drink without worrying about 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, and debris. Based on a simple award-winning design, this water bottle saves you the trouble of packing lots of drinking water during a thru-hike or short excursion by letting you purify river or lake water as you go, and its replaceable filter is rated for 300 uses. It also doesn't need batteries, UV lights, or a complex filter or straw system, making it an ideal choice for anyone who needs to pack light and be certain their gear will do its job.
When we think of "flying DeLorean," somehow this isn't quite what we've had in mind. Developed by Paul DeLorean, nephew of DMC founder John, the DeLorean DR-7 Aircraft is a two-seat, self-flying vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicle. It looks less like a car than a plane, with two sets of wings, winglets underneath, and two large ducted fans that sit horizontally for takeoff before rotating to vertical for forward flight. Still in the R&D phase, it will measure 20 feet long and 18.5 feet wide, with the ability to tuck its wings to the sides to fit in large garages. The hope is to have a full-scale prototype in the air by next year, with the ultimate goal of squeezing 120 miles of range out of its all-electric propulsion system.

If your moto is something a bit more svelte than bagger, hauling your EDC around requires a pack. And now matter how well-maintained your bike is, there's going to be a time where you're going to need tools on the road. With the new EXFIL-80 bag, Biltwell has all the bases covered for anyone who rides. A drop-down removable tool compartment can hold a set of wrenches and sockets, while the padded zip cover can double as a pillow if you need a roadside rest. Detachable straps and MOLLE webbing and customization, and ballistic UV-treated polyester make sure it will last for many road trips to come.
A majority of the most popular French presses are made from glass. Unfortunately, glass doesn't hold up so well in the wilderness. This Stanley Classic Vacuum French Press does. Crafted from 18/8 stainless steel, it's naturally BPA-free, won't rust, and is ideal for camping. Its vacuum insulation keeps coffee hot for up to four hours, cold for up to 9, and iced for up to 24. Available in timeless hammertone green with a 48 oz. capacity.
