With a top speed of 16mph, mobility company Onewheel’s new Pint model proves powerful but less cumbersome than earlier editions. While users stand on this iteration, the same as previous models, both the wheel and the platform are considerably smaller. The Pint promises six to eight miles of range over even terrain—sidewalks, paved streets, and blacktop. Every order comes with the Pint home charger and an attachable Maghandle.
Any fitness enthusiast—especially those with a fondness for boxing—will confirm the impact and efficiency of jumping rope. Easy and inexpensive, this activity also eschews the need for bulky gear. CROSSROPE’s Get Lean Jump Rope Set (2020) includes the brand’s newest handles, .25-pound and .5-pound ropes (which are offered in multiple lengths and are easily swapped), a carrying pouch and access to the free version of the workout app—everything you need to jump with confidence.
Awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for comfortability and performance, the X-SCAPE NBK Low by Deckers Lab are a sneaker, slipper and performance shoe hybrid. On the exterior, an EcoTan nubuck leather upper flows into an ultra-soft Xponent HD midsole. Inside, a high-rise heel stabilizes the foot, while a Looped Wool liner offers thermoregulation and sweat-wicking. The X-SCAPE NBK Low model is available in an array of colors, but our favorite remains the classic black-and-white combination, which proves viable for everyday or exercise wear.
Fit for commuting or cruising, Levy’s baseline Electric Scooter features a first-ever for the consumer e-scooter market: within the stem (the pole that attaches the handlebars to the frame) there is a swappable battery system. This allows riders to change the internal battery (which should last 10 miles on a single charge) when it dies, lengthening rides and saving owners from the hassle of lugging the scooter home. (The scooter isn’t terribly heavy, though—just 27 pounds.) Further, the scooter is available with either 8.5-inch tubeless or solid tires—the latter eliminates the possibility of a flat while out on a ride.
Beloved Long Beach, CA-based roller skate brand Moxi started making skates in 2008 and now routinely sells out of their retro-vibed releases. Available for pre-order (and shipping in November), these Panther Skates feature a drum-dyed suede boot with a curved collar and ankle padding for comfort, high-rebound wheels for outdoor use, and animal-print toe-caps to protect against scuffs. The brand also purveys safety gear for all, as the brand is committed to make “sizes to fit the full spectrum of skater bodies.”
LA-based Slowdown Studio has collaborated with Mylle and London-based artist Anna Beam for this playful but sophisticated take on the humble inflatable pool. Made from super-durable heavyweight vinyl, each pool features a valve for easy inflation (and deflation) and is big enough for adults at 15 inches tall, and 65 inches diameter. Between pool’s shape and quality of the materials, and Beam’s delightful pattern design, this is an elevated inflatable pool just in time for summer 2020.
With an emphasis on agility, Gogoro’s Eeyo 1s electric bicycle is a sleek and slim open-frame bike with a smart-pedal-assist system that amplifies the rider’s torque at a natural pace. Rather than relying on a bulky battery-bearing frame, the power hubs are compact and tucked into the hull. The pedal-assisted top speed is 19mph and guarantees a range of 40 miles when fully charged. Plus, at just 26.4 pounds (courtesy of the weight-shedding, Kevlar-lined carbon fiber frame), the Eeyo 1s weighs roughly half as much as most e-bikes, making it a breeze to ride and to carry up and down from your apartment.
These black and white ribbed crew socks—made in LA by Tuesday Bassen— plainly celebrate what the brand calls the only sports worth watching: women’s. Soft, thick and comfy, the socks are made in one size for all genders.
Made for runners, this long-sleeved shirt by Tracksmith was inspired by the mesh jersey that Bill “Boston Billy” Rodgers wore when he won the 1975 Boston Marathon. Lightweight, breathable and antimicrobial, the polyester/spandex blend (known as the brand’s “2:09 mesh”) is ideal for sweaty jogs. It’s available in navy with an ivory stripe or ivory with a terra cotta stripe, and in sizes small to XL.

Named “Center,” Round21 and artist Ju Schnee’s collaborative ping pong paddle features a colorful design that clearly marks the middle of the strike zone—where the ball should hit to avoid it careening out of bounds. A vibrant, geometric design adorns one side, while a speckled black and white pattern occupies the other. This high-preformance paddle features an ergonomic grip that lends comfort and control, and a rubber-foam hybrid pad for improved accuracy. Right now, the brand commits 10% of net proceeds to the Public Art Fund.
Independent magazine Orange Crush marries art and the sport of wrestling through written and visual storytelling. Volume #1 features pieces on “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela, painter Carroll Dunham, writer Alissa Bennett, Mexican luchador Mil Mascaras, and more. While professional wrestling and fine art may be an unexpected pairing, the sport’s reliance on art through masks, costumes, props and stage design places it in an ideal position for creative interpretation and experimentation.
