Emerging Gear: Outdoor Products This Week

A peek at emerging products, culled from crowd-source sites like Kickstarter, PR campaigns, and industry scoops on the sometimes cutting-edge, sometimes quirky world of gear design.


Future Shades

As seen this month on Olympic athletes in Rio, the Nike Wing sunglasses ($1,200) are rare optics with “unbroken lines” for a unique shield to cut wind drag for runners to almost nothing. They are hinge-less and weigh only 4 grams. The future shades also include a silicone eyebrow pad and rubber nose pad.


Wearable Bike GPS

The Lezyne GPS watch line offers a bike computer on your wrist (with functions for hiking and running, too). The Micro C GPS Watch has a color display and connectivity to your smartphone, power meter, heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor, and more.
