Ariel-Ace-Motorcycle Ariel Ace
Before it built the face-rearranging Atom, Ariel made face-rearranging motorcycles. Now, Ariel has announced that they will be building their first two-wheeler since the 1970s. The Ace will feature a 1237cc V4 churning out 173 horsepower and the option for a fully manual or dual clutch transmission. Believe it or not, the insane engine and drivetrain isn’t the most important part of this bike. That would be the interchangeable parts. Yes, if you’re the picky type, Ariel will offer a selection of different suspensions, tanks, seats and more, making this one of the most customizable bikes from the factory, ever. arielmotor.co.uk
Pollock-Arm-Charm-Gear-Patrol Knoll Pollock Arm Chair
Charles Pollock was broke when he walked into Knoll’s offices with several chair prototypes made from scrap plumbing. He was given a job and went on to develop what would become the iconic 657. Today, the 657 (more commonly referred to as the Pollock Chair) is most remembered for its iconic, minimalist design, where form followed function. The chair has been out of production for 35 years, but is now being reintroduced in memory of the legendary designer who passed away just last summer. It’s made from tubular steel, cast aluminum and high quality leather, so it should physically hold up for as long as the design does — that is, a lifetime. $2380
Nike-Lunar-Waverly-Golf-Shoes-Gear-Patrol Nike Golf Lunar Waverly and Lunar Mont Royal
Nike’s new Lunar Wavery and Lunar Mont Royal, available July 1, are inspired by the brand’s long history of manufacturing running and court sport trainers, so you don’t have to feel like a retiree the next time you play a round of 18 holes. Nike boasts that their new footwear is as comfortable as it is stylish, so feel free to ditch the E-Z-Go and walk the course instead. $100+
Nomad-Clip-Gear-Patrol Nomad Clip
If you’ve been draining your smartphone’s battery by playing a few too many games of 2048, but never have a charger on you, Nomad has got your back. Having already been successful with their Nomadcard and Nomadkey, the company has now made a carabiner-style USB charger that will easily clip onto your keychain or bag. Assuming you’re the forgetful type, or you’re just fed up with untangling cables, Nomadclip might just be what you need to keep connected, provided you have access to your computer. hellonomad.com
Hex-Outcast-Collection-Gear-Patrol Hex Outpost Collection
Waxed canvas is one of the oldest forms of waterproof materials and, while it’s being replaced by modern materials like Gore-Tex, it remains both effective and handsome. Hex’s Outpost collection of bags — backpacks, totes and duffles — uses it in a slate gray with camo trim for a great understated look. $35+
Eagle-Rock-Breezeaway-Towel-Gear-Patrol ERYC X Breezeway Beach Towels
These towels from Eagle Rock Yacht Club and Brooklyn-based towel boutique Breezeway are what you might call “ridiculously expensive” for pieces of fabric you use to dry yourself. But then, they are limited edition. And you can pick from an East- or West-Coast inspiration. And the one you’ve been using for years smells like old seaweed. $100
