The E-Fleet Band

 

 

FARADAY CORTLAND $2499

 

Electric bikes, or “e-bikes”, have become one of the most popular categories of bicycles for both fun and commuting, opening the road up to many who might not have previously considered cycling as their mode of recreation or transport before. We’re talking “pedal assist” here, not those motorized bikes your take-out gets delivered on that require no pedaling at all. For those times when you need an extra boost of power while riding, and don’t want to break a sweat — say up a hill on your way to work — the e-bike is the way to go.

In the US, there are three classes of e-bikes defined by the speed and type of power assist. Class 1 bikes have a motor (max 750w) that assists while you’re pedaling and maxes out at 20 mph. Class 3 can assist up to 28 mph. Both are allowed in most states and cities without requiring a license. Class 2 models have throttles that don’t require pedaling in order to get a boost. The miles before recharging, or range of the bike, is determined by how much assist you use.

Most big name cycling companies now offer a class 1 e-bike option, as well many design-oriented bespoke brands, and even urban bike-sharing systems like Citibike have added e-bikes to their fleet. I rode an electric Citibike home from work earlier this week (they’re hard to find!), zipping up Madison Avenue in no time with a “I’m having a blast” look on my face. Even the taxi drivers were smiling at me. Read More

From the laps in the pool, to aqua running, to open water swimming…

we’ve got all the cool gear you’ll love to keep wet workouts fun.

C’mon and jump in!

 
I have not had my typical sporty summer of running, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, and cycling. I’ve had a stress fracture in my foot that has kept me from many of the sports I usually enjoy. The good news is it has opened up all sorts of new sports — all in the water!

Swimming truly is the sport of a lifetime. Non weight-bearing, it allows you to do the cardio, strength, and endurance workouts that injury or age prevents. I’ve seen that first hand with my new silver haired fitness tribe in the Deep Water Running class at Alphalt Green, where I’ve gotten a preview of my workouts at 80! It’s become my Soul Cycle replacement for the summer giving me that group exercise motivation and comradery I love.

Then there has been the solitary and meditative discipline of swimming — open water in particular. I’ve always been a pool swimmer, but this summer I’ve conquered my fear of what lies beneath in murky water with an experienced training partner, and discovered the goal achieving satisfaction of swimming to a destination – like a long distance run!

Powering Life Off The Grid

 
CLOCKWISE TOP LEFT: CAMPING AND COOKING WITH BIOLITE CAMPSTOVE; BIOLITE BASECAMP STOVE; COOKING WITH BIOLITE HOMESTOVE IN UGANDA 

 

When Jonathan Cedar and Alex Drummond decided to build a better campstove, little did they know they would be finding a solution for a much larger health, environmental, and economic challenge. What started as an afterhours project for two campers and product developers evolved into a full time business and line of outdoor products with a much larger global mission called Biolite.

Half the planet lives in “energy poverty”, lacking safe and reliable ways to cook, charge, and light their lives. Imagine having an open campfire burning in your home every day. Three billion people cook over smoky open fires, which is the cause of 4 million premature deaths annually – more than HIV, TB, and malaria combined. These emissions are also the world’s leading carbon pollutants and source of climate change. Tired of having their campstoves run out of gas, Jonathan and Alex simply wanted to design a campstove that didn’t rely on fossil fuels. What they discovered serendipitously was that the needs of families around the world living in energy poverty were very much aligned with those of outdoor enthusiasts.

Biolite founders Jonathan Cedar and Alex Drummond met at Smart Design in New York City where they quickly bonded over their interest in sustainable design. Cedar told Style of Sport in an interview last week, “It wasn’t meant to be business. It was just meant to be to be fun. Let’s make a stove that doesn’t use gas.”  Their concept was a portable wood-burning stove able to utilize its own thermal energy to improve combustion. Using the technology of thermoelectric panels – the same concept as solar panels but for heat – a fan could power combustion with the energy generated from the heat of the fire. A self-sustaining cycle was the result: burning wood generates heat; heat generates electricity; electricity powers the fan; fan stokes the fire and makes more heat. And so it goes. The electricity generated could charge personal devices too. Read More
