Icon E-Flyer II

iconeflyer.jpg

With many of their masterpieces going for a cool six figures it should have been no surprise that the most reasonably priced entry into the Icon range would quickly sell out. Released late last year, the E-Flyer bicycle returns with a fresh new update.

We've yet to get a full list of specs and details, but what we do know is that the all-electric bike will now come in nine colorways and will be equipped with hydraulic brakes. It also looks like there will be a whole host of options for you to choose from like the saddle bags in the photo above. We'll update the post as we get the final price and option list when the bike goes up for sale in the coming week.

bangs8.jpg

Bang & Olufsen wireless S8 speakers may look small, but beneath the surface lies some powerful audio hardware that will fill any room. The BeoPlay S8 consists of two satellite speakers and a subwoofer that can have its sound "position" adjusted to optimize itself no matter where it is in the room.

Though compact, the BeoPlay S8 packs 140 watts of sound in each satellite's Class D amps and 280 watts of power in the subwoofer. The sub also has an 8-inch driver to pump out deep bass and is coupled with a DSP to get the most out of your music. Did we mention how good these look? These aren't some speakers you hide on a bookshelf, these are well-designed furniture pieces in their own right that you'll definitely want to display out in the open.

Leica updates its flagship M with the new and understated M-P. Available in black or silver, the M-P loses the Leica badge for an under the radar look with an almost completely unbranded exterior and the only branding being a subtle Leica script on the top plate.

The camera also gets a 2GB memory buffer for faster shooting, an LCD monitor covered in a layer of anti-reflective sapphire crystal for the ultimate in scratch-resistant screen protection, and the same flagship 24 megapixel full-frame sensor that's found inside its sibling, the Leica M 240.

Vans Chukka Zip LX

Any shoe that gets us through the TSA line faster is a winner in our book, though it helps when the shoe is one of our favorite all-time sneakers. The Vans Chukka has always been loved for its comfort and low-profile styling and now it gets even better with the Zip LX.

With an upper done up in suede, it's the classic Chukka silhouette with an important little tweak: a zipper in the heel for quickly getting in and out. Definitely a shoe you'll want to live in if life tends to take you upto 30,000 feet on a regular basis.

The Craft and the Makers

craftmakers.jpg

Though the world has been obsessed with what the best developers can make with a line of code, there has been a major resurgence in what you can build with your bare hands. Gestalten takes a look those talented individuals with their upcoming book, The Craft and the Makers:

"Craftsmanship is in more demand than ever and small manufacturers are experiencing an overwhelming renaissance. We are increasingly looking for products that last and have their own histories; things that meld form, function, and emotion into a compelling entity. This desire will continue to shape our attitudes toward consumer and luxury goods as well as innovation for the foreseeable future. Today, there are already many people who are not concerned with a logo, chasing the next trend, or contributing to a disposable society. They would rather seek objects of real value and own things with which they can truly identify.

The Craft and the Makers showcases savvy businesses that are choosing to focus on craftsmanship and aiming to create things with a soul. A decisive role is played by melding tradition and innovation--from the raw materials used to the finished product. The book introduces small enterprises as well as the personalities that drive them. These artisans are using their skills to produce handicraft that meets the highest standards. Whether furniture, porcelain, or leather goods, all of the products featured here offer today's true luxury: the perfect fusion of creativity and craftsmanship that results in quality and durability. Reflecting this spirit, every page is a testament to the products created with heart that are much more than a sum of their parts."

If you're an athlete you probably already know that there aren't a whole lot of great suiting options for more muscular builds and the ones that are available aren't exactly flattering. J.Crew has come to the rescue with a new suit called the Crosby.

It's everything that's great about their popular Ludlow suiting with a fit that's more in tune broader physiques. They've strategically added room in all the important areas adding more width in the shoulders, chest, and arms and more room in the seat, legs, and thigh. The fit and finish is still maintained with all their premium fabric options and a flattering cut that is up there with the best that Saville Row has to offer.
