Volkswagen brought their I.D. R electric race car to the 2018 Pikes Peak hill climb with one mission — to smash the previous record in the Unlimited class. And smash they did, setting a new record over 15 seconds faster than the one set in 2013 by a gas-powered turbocharged Peugeot. Watch the entire record-breaking run from a birds-eye helicopter view — even the helicopter has a hard time keeping up.
American legend Evel Knievel passed away in 2007, and the void he left has yet to be filled — until now. Travis Pastrana has raced everything from NASCAR's Bush series to the American Rally Championship, but his love has always been motorcycles. Now, he's recreated three of Evel's most popular jumps — the fountain at Caesar's Palace, 52 crushed cars, and 16 Greyhound buses, all while riding a custom Indian motorcycle.
Taking a cue from car dealerships, Bamford Watch Department last year built a "Service Watch" that was lent out to clients while their timepiece was in for maintenance. People loved it and wanted to purchase one for themselves, so the Bamford Mayfair watch was born. Measuring in at a classic 40mm size with Military Grade Titanium Coating (MGTC), the watch is available in two versions — one with a matte grey case, anodized aluminum bezel, and leather strap, and one with a more sinister black case, matte ceramic bezel, and rubber strap. Both watches' indices and hands are finished in LumiNova for legibility and are powered by a Quartz Miyota 2035 movement. The Mayfair is your daily driver. Your vintage Rolex is the one that stays in the garage except on special occasions.
The Diver Blue from Bell & Ross is versatile enough for a formal affair and sporty enough for your next subaquatic adventure. The timepiece leads with the iconic Bell & Ross square case — made of satin-polished stainless-steel — which frames the more traditional unidirectional round bezel and dial. The dark navy dial features Super-Luminova filled numerals, applied indices, along with metal skeletonized hands for peak visibility on land or in the dark depths of the sea. The Blue is powered by caliber BR-CAL.302 automatic movement and finished with interchangeable blue rubber and ultra-resilient black synthetic fabric straps.

Milk Bar's cake truffles are a thing of beauty. The bite-sized balls of magic are a masterful mix of chewy cake, sweet white chocolate, and a crunchy topping. For those who can't visit one of the bakery's locations on the regular, founder and chef Christina Tosi demonstrates how to make her signature treat with a refreshing summer twist.
When you think of surfing destinations, you think California, Hawaii, Australia — not NYC's East River. But sometimes you can't get away to a surfer's paradise and just have to use what you got. Casey Neistat did just that when he got a group of friends together for some Independence Day powerboarding on one of the smelliest rivers in the US.
