Kingii, Smallest Inflatable In The World!

Kingii is small, non-invasive, reliable and with it's unobtrusive design for the first time providing safety in the water in a convenient way.
The Kingii fits on your wrist, stays out of the way, is rechargeable and is there when you need it most. The smallest inflatable in the world is perfect for every activity, every age and every environment around the water. The risk of drowning and the need for bulky safety devices is over!

The only thing that would make this better is it you could set the depth and not require the use to pull a tab. 

Parents - you worry about your kids but want them to be independent and have fun in the water. In situations when you can not be present, Kingii provides that added safety net that allows you to worry less. Give your child something that it likes to wear and that is easy to use.

Simple things make life that much better. I hate carrying around my camera, because of the neck strap. Everyone, pulls out their phone and snaps a picture. Peak Design has changed that and this belt/strap click is awesome.

Road Bike Porn, Pinarello Dogma K8-S

This has to be the hottest bike on the tour or in shops right now. I know they are using this for the cobblestones, but for the everyday rider on their local country roads this is a game changer.

“Game changer” is not an idea from our marketing people, but the first words of Sir Bradley Wiggins after testing DOGMA K8-S

Yes, this product will revolutionize the world of ROAD BIKES, creating a new segment: The REAR SUSPENDED. The DOGMA K8-S

is the result of a specific request of TEAM SKY: to have an innovative frame able to reduce the psycho-physical stress of the athletes, and thus increase the performance in the HELL OF NORTH.

As with the Dogma F8, we assembled our team ofItalian and British engineers, who collaborated to put on the road a bike withwell-defined characteristics: vertically compliant yet stiff at the same moment andof course maintainingthe weight of a ROAD BIKE.We designed a lightweight suspension system in combination with the new carbon chain stays, able to flex, in order to create a pivot point for the perfect riding comfort.

 DOGMA K8-S  front triangle is similar to the one of DOGMA F8. Geometries are just slightly modified, for better riding on rough terrain, whereas the rear triangle changes, thanks to the new suspension DSS 1.0 (Dogma Suspension System) and new flat chain stays FLEXSTAYS™.

 After laboratory tests, which ensured safety and efficiency of the new frame, we tested the new DOGMA K8-S covering the last 130km of the Paris-Roubaix route, with Sir Bradley Wiggins and Christian Knees. Over  long and regular cobbles sectors, we performed comparative tests with the previous DOGMA K. Both frames had accelerometers, powermeters and GPS instrumentation.

From the whole test campaign we obtained a large amount of data; synthetizing all these, to ease the comparison, the overall performance of Dogma K8S is 4.6% greater than Dogma K 2015, in terms of handling and comfort.

The DOGMA K8-S frame (size 53), complete with suspension, weighs less than 1kg, exactly 990 grams. This is a revolutionary frame, which will open new scenarios in road bike riding and racing.

Columbia OutDry Extreme Diamond Shell

$400 for a rain jacket. Not sure how many they will sell, but check out the review given by Outside magazine.
The most breathable rain jacket we’ve tested, thanks to a brand-new waterproof concept called OutDry Extreme that prevents the shell from ever wetting out. A tough, rubbery exterior is super abrasion-resistant, and it doesn’t look dirty as quickly as other shells. (More on this below.) 
The aesthetics didn’t appeal to everyone. Columbia is using contrasting external seam taping and contrasting patches on the shoulders. This makes the jacket look techy, but it’s a look that not everyone loved.
A jacket best suited for people looking to do high-output activities—think hiking, trail work, or flatwater paddling—in the rain.
