Today in Gear: Urban Bike Commuter Gear from PEdALED, a Surprise Audio Release from Apple & More
Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at email@example.com.
For city-bound bike commuters there are specific logistical issues to solve, the biggest of which is quite possibly what to wear. Do you go fully kitted and change at work? Do you just sport what you’re going to wear at work (chancing sweat stains)? Or do you find something in between?
PEdALED has an answer to this quandary with its brand new Urban Collection, designed to perform on and off the bike. PEdALED was born out of a love for urban cycling through the streets of Tokyo, meaning its founders know exactly what stylish-yet-versatile cycling clothes demand. Pieces like the Yobi Shirt and Ikiru Pants use lightweight materials, waterproof fabrics and hidden pockets fused with technical and contemporary features to ensure a full range of motion, all while still looking put together.
New & Noteworthy Releases
The Powerbeats Pro sport headphones are expected to have the same H1 chip as Apple's new AirPods, so they'll have many the same new features.

MWC GG-W-113 Military Watch
Save 10%: The GG-W-113 is one of the classic American military field watches produced in large quantities for servicemen during the Vietnam War. These were small (by modern standards), hand-wound field watches made to a strict specification that evolved over time, and they have an instantly recognizable, no-nonsense aesthetic that has made them beloved by watch collectors and lovers of militaria. — Oren Hartov
Lucchese Grayson Chelsea Boots
Save 55%:Founded in 1883, Lucchese is one of America’s premier boot makers. Originally located in San Antonio, the company is now headquartered in El Paso. While it produces some entry-level level boots in Mexico, the brand still makes its flagship footwear in Texas. Styles include numerous cowboy boots, naturally, along with a few complimentary silhouettes.
Of the latter, the Grayson Chelsea boots are worth checking out. The boot features a black suede upper, a back heel loop, a leather outsole and side gore panels. Normally $745, the Grayson is now 55 percent off at Zappos and costs $335. If you’re looking for a versatile boot for everyday wear, check this style out before it’s gone. — John Zientek
Bodum Pour-Over Coffee Brewer
Save 50%: Though we hold drip coffee machines in high regard, any coffee diehard will tell you the purest, most flexible way to brew coffee is in a pour-over brewer. Pour-over brewing allows the brewer to adjust water temperature, volume, pouring pattern and even number of pours cup-to-cup. The rabbit hole is deep.
Under Armour Running Socks Sale
Save 25%: Under Armour’s run cushion socks are on sale right now for 25 percent off. These lightweight socks hold up after numerous wash cycles and maintain their cushion and don’t get pilly like some no-show socks tend to do. There’s added cushion under the toes and around the arch so feet are protected from your very first step. Whether you’re hitting the road for one mile, five or your last long run before the Boston marathon, these socks will handle the challenge. I’ve had a pair now for over four months, and they’re one of the first that I’ll reach for when I’m hopping on the treadmill or heading on a run (now that it’s finally warm out). Pick up a pair of the black, orange, white and blue colors for just $9.75 on Amazon today. — Meg Lappe
Osprey Travel Duffel
Save 20%: Luggage has always presented a kind of Catch 22. While it may help organize and carry both gear and clothing in transit, it becomes a bit of a pain to store when it’s not in use. Osprey’s UI Stuff Duffel solves that problem thanks to a special easy to stuff design — and today it is 20% off.
Made from a lightweight but sturdy 40D ripstop stitching, the duffel bag features 30L of storage and a padded shoulder sling for easy carrying. When you are done huffing around stuff for the day, the bag can be packed into itself and thrown in a drawer or glovebox. Whether you’re looking for a gym bag or something to travel with, this duffel is more than up to the challenge. — J.D. DiGiovanni
