New Bikes on the Block

 

 

Move over Citibike, there’s a new bike in town. JOCO is a privately owned bike share service, and their distinctive orange bikes are popping up all over Manhattan. Unlike Citibike, the entire fleet of JOCO bicycles are electric assist, or e-bikes, and docking stations are located in parking garages, apartment buildings, and other private spaces. This micro-mobility brand is on a mission to merge sustainability and convenience, and “bring the joy back to your commute”.

JOCO was founded by two young entrepreneurs, coincidentally both named Jonny Cohen. The duo met at Columbia Business School, one with a focus on investment banking and real estate, and the other on transportation. Both living in NYC, they wanted to create a more efficient, enjoyable, and sustainable way to get around town. Together they have combined their skills to develop an alternate form of transportation.

“60% of trips in the US are under 5 miles. You don’t need a two-ton vehicle to travel such a short distance”, say the Jonnys. With carbon emissions at an all-time high, JOCO is addressing the transportation needs and environmental issues facing the city. JOCO launched on Earth Day in April with 30 docks, and by June they will be in 100 locations with 1,000 bikes across NYC. Their plan is to grow nationwide by creating a vast charging infrastructure network that will power the future of micro-mobility. Read More

 

Surf Snow Skate

 
 

SANDY SHAPES SURFSKATES:

PACIFICO ~ MEDITERRANEO ~ TROPICALE

 

Surfskates are skateboards for surfing on the street. Designed to mimic the feel of a surfboard, they are longer, with a front truck design that allows the rider to carve, pump, and cut as they would on a wave… or on a snowboard.

Sandy Shapes Surfskates are actually made from snowboards… or those remnants of wood that didn’t quite become snowboards. This Italian manufacturer of beautiful one-of-a-kind wooden snowboards and splitboards has turned the scraps of wood that would have been discarded into an equally beautiful line of surfskates. In an effort to minimize waste, these excess pieces have been reimagined into something totally new.

Each skate deck is constructed from sheets of natural and colored ash and walnut, and interspersed with 6 layers of beechwood to obtain an optimal structure and flex for surfskating. There are three shapes: the Pacifico, inspired by classic surf cruisers; the Mediterraneo, a shorter surfskate for fast cutbacks and responsive turns; and the Tropicale, a swallowtail surfskate inspired by fish surfboards for those “old-school” riders.

So whether you like to surf, skate, or snowboard, these environmentally friendly surfskates are a fun and stylish way to experience the sensations of the ocean or snow while cruising city streets.
