Dreamscience and Jamie Barrow take snowboarding horizontal

Motor power can make already crazy, awesome adrenaline sports even crazier and … awesomer. Just look at designs like the Gnarboard and Jetboard. Unfortunately, filling a garage with various forms of motorized gear could quickly bankrupt a professional sports star.

Flip the vest-like outer layer for some privacy while changing

The Adrenalina hoodie packs two layers worth of shirt so that surfers, bikers and other athletes can change comfortably on the go. The upper layer serves as a sort of "modesty towel," flipping down over the waist and nethers to let you change your pants on a crowded beach or parking lot.  Read More

The sides of the Snow Foldable Helmet pull out to match the width of the user's head

Eyewear and helmet manufacturer Carrera got itself noticed last year, when it released an accordion-like bike helmet that can be folded in or out to accommodate different head sizes.
