Good morning. This should come as no surprise to anyone in or around the sweltering pit of despair that has been NYC the past week or so, but in the 136 years of global temperature-tracking, July was the hottest month ever, keeping up a 10-month streak of record breakers. If you’re looking for ways to keep cool, might we recommend a refreshing summer beer? Alright, perhaps it’s a little early yet, so wait on it and instead soak in what’s good in gear: a side-by-side that’s faster than your car, new throwback Reeboks, iconic eyeglasses in limited quantities and much more.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
Can-Am Maverick X3 Side-by-Side
Offered in three variants, the new Maverick is a dune killer and muddin‘ hero. Its 24 inches of rear suspension travel are best in the biz, and since it’s a foot longer than the competition it handles like a relative dream. The Maverick is powered by a new 154-horse turbocharged engine and blasts to 60 in 4.9 seconds. A side-by-side. Oof.
Wilson x Connected Football
As a follow up to their connected basketball, Wilson has come out with a football that’ll train you like the pro you want to be. It’s available in official and junior spec, and its built-in sensors monitor everything from spin rate and spiral efficiency to speed and distance. And of course everything is monitored and recorded on dedicated mobile apps.
Reebok x JackThreads Launch One Sneakers
The first in a series of three drops, this collab features the classic sneakers we know and love, injected with a bit of custom orange flair. Two colorways are available, both adorned with pigskin suede. Perfect for when you don’t want to conform to more minimalist trends.
Automatic Pro 3G Car Monitoring
This adapter plugs into your car’s on-board diagnostic system (yes, you have one) and, using a 3G wireless signal, provides you with the ability to monitor and control all manner of data. Automatic emergency response, car tracking and connectivity that plays nicely with everything from Hue lights to Google Sheets.
Moscot at Mr. Porter
Three of Moscot’s most beloved styles have joined the ranks at Mr. Porter — only 50 of each were produced, meaning the sunglasses and eyeglasses available total only 300. Find the right pair for yourself and act quickly.
Huawei Honor 8 Smartphone
For a relative bargain, the Honor 8 sports a 5.2-inch display with 423ppi, a 3,000mAh battery, 32GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. Notable is the dual 12MP camera that composites images; quite eye catching is the glossy design.
