A few years back New Zealand-based FX Bikes unveiled the world’s lightest dirt bike, a svelte little motocrosser build with a combo of mountain bike & motorcycle parts. Their newest creation is the FX5, now powered by a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, 125cc motor with optional automatic clutch. And gone are the mtb parts, meaning it’s a bit heavier at 130 pounds but still silly light. Specs are hard to come by at the moment, but stay tuned to their website for more information. Available next summer.
They’ve taken the dry erase whiteboard and put it into notebook form. It’s called Wipebook and it just makes sense. Write on it, wipe it off as needed & start over. Plus, all you ever do in meetings is doodle & do trees really need to die for that?
When it comes to Swiss watches, pedigree is everything. And as the grandsons of legendary watchmaker Raymond Weil, the brothers behind the 88 Rue Du Rhone brand have this base completely covered.

Winter is hot tub season. After a day on the slopes or shoveling snow there’s nothing like a good, hot soak. And the experience gets no better than an outdoor dip into a classic, wood-fired tub. Free of chemicals and whirring motors, this luxurious Dutch Tub is the perfect remedy to kill that winter chill.
German engineering. It just makes sense. Festool builds some of the best-designed powertools in the world as well as logical accessories like this toolbox that doubles as a miniature worktable complete with holes for clamps and hold-downs, creating a functional work surface wherever you take it.
You might want to get out there and explore the winter wilderness before the snow stops falling forever. And when you go, you could bring no better snowshoes than these. Designed and built in Norway, they feature a unibody honeycomb design and a rocker profile that makes traveling by foot in deep snow easier than ever.
The galvanized metal Kranz Tray is modeled after the classic German beer-tasting tray but not to worry, the 12 slim glasses aren’t sample size, they’re plenty big enough to wet your whistle.
Made of vegetable tanned Italian leather, this little box from Hard Graft will hold anything you deem worthy of placing in its cozy wool felt interior. Buckle closure for adjustable height.
