Reebok’s new ATV 19+ runners feature 19 huge grippy lugs on the sole of each shoe

It’s no coincidence that Reebok’s goofy-looking new running shoe, the ATV 19+, shares its acronym with that of All-Terrain Vehicles. Like the wheeled and motorized ATVs, the shoes feature a wide stable stance, big lugs, and independent suspension (within each of those lugs).  Read More

The CamelBak Bootlegger is a hydration pack designed for the ski slopes

Hydration backpacks have made carrying water during many sports much easier. For some other sports, however, the hydration pack isn't that much more convenient than a water bottle. When it comes to skiing, hydration packs freeze easily and can be uncomfortable on a chairlift. Camelbak has a new design that promises to make hydration more ski-friendly.  Read More

The Koala Bottle system uses magnets to hold its bottle in place on the user's bike

The standard bicycle water-bottle-and-cage system is pretty tried and trusted. That said, at one time or another, just about every cyclist has dropped their bottle on the road when they didn’t put it back in the cage properly ... or perhaps they’ve even wiped out, because they were distracted by trying to remove or replace the bottle. That’s why Anthony Goldman created the Koala Bottle system, which uses magnets to keep the bottle attached to the bike.  Read More

The Video Head makes POV footage easier than ever

The helmet cam has been one of the biggest things to ever hit the action sports market. These relatively inexpensive, easy-to-use cameras have made it both affordable and easy to capture action sports film, enabling everyone from beginners to pros to film their greatest (and worst) exploits. The Video Head camera helmet takes a different approach, pulling the action camera off its Teletubby-like perch on top of the helmet and sliding it inside.  Read More

Besides continuing to produce its high-end protective body armor, Dainese has also spent the last several years developing something else – a wearable airbag system for motorcyclists. A couple of years ago, the Italian company announced that it had entered into a partnership with the International Ski Federation, to adapt that system for use by downhill ski racers. Now, Dainese has announced that it is fine-tuning the ski system, for use in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.  Read More

The Tron style ASB GlassFloor basketball court

Multi-purpose sporting courts can be a jumble of different colored lines and markings that can be confusing to spectators and players alike. Similar to LEDSSPORT's Pulastic LED Court, the GlassFloor flooring from German company ASB uses LEDs embedded in the floor to display the line markings for different sports at the flick of a switch.  Read More

The US Bobsled Team's BMW-designed two-man bobsled

Last November, BMW DesignworksUSA announced that it was in the process of designing a new state-of-the-art two-man bobsled for the US Bobsled Team. At the time, only a vague teaser sketch of the sled was available. Now that one of the prototypes has been raced, however, we get to see some actual photos – and the thing looks pretty sharp. Its performance is also promising.  Read More

The Cruise Control app changes the tempo of your music to suit your running speed (Photo: ...

If you listen to music while you run, chances are there a few songs that you particularly like, as their tempo perfectly matches your preferred running speed. Wouldn’t it be neat if your whole music library consisted of songs like that? Well, that’s the idea – or one of them, at least – behind the Cruise Control app. Without changing the pitch of the music, it automatically alters a song’s tempo to turn it into a motivational running soundtrack.  Read More

Leikr shows your position on a color map

One of the big sports-based breakthroughs of 2012 was the integration of GPS navigation into sports watches. Watches like the Garmin Fenix and Suunto Ambit offer users the ability to create tracks and navigate routes from the wrist. We're barely into 2013, and the GPS sports watch has made another big step: color mapping.  Read More
