Radinn electric jet-boards are like a stand-up paddle-boards without the paddle and the Urban Rebel is one of their most versatile designs.

Pricing is subject to change depending on your particular configuration.
Patagonia’s R4 wetsuit (available for all genders) is constructed from Fair Trade Certified Yulex natural rubber and synthetic rubber, a first-ever for the category. The formfitting garment protects against exposure to cold water—specifically, 38 to 48 degrees Fahrenheit—and increases circulation through compression. The suit now boasts increased stretchability, with recycled liners employed throughout to improve flexibility. The new front zipper and a redesigned hood also make getting in and out easier and faster. Available in size four through 12 in traditional women’s sizes and small to XL in men’s.
NYC-based fitness studio The Brrrn focuses on slide board workouts in colder settings. Their in-person slide classes, for example, happen in 50-degree gym spaces. For those who want to do the same workout at home, classes and accessories are available through The Brrrn’s At-Home Subscription, a monthly plan that provides members with access to classes whenever they’d like. All of the classes use the studio’s eponymous Brrrn Board, a five-foot-long surface flanked by two wooden bumpers. From skating-type stance, you slide back and forth, following the instructor’s guidance for knee bend, hand placement and pace. Seasoned sliders can opt for fast-paced classes, longer sessions or workouts that reinvent the way you use the board. Each board weighs 28 pounds and comes with booties and wipes.

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.

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.
Beloved Long Beach, CA-based roller skate brand Moxi started making skates in 2008 and now routinely sells out of their retro-vibed releases.

The brand also purveys safety gear for all, as the brand is committed to make “sizes to fit the full spectrum of skater bodies.”
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.

Unlike lotions, which can be applied unevenly, the roll-on relieves pain more effectively. Plus, Asystem’s recipe—which contains 25% active ingredients—provides relief quickly.
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.
