At $12,500, the Specialized Venge is being dubbed "the new shape of speed" and for that pricepoint, it better! This purpose-built road bike is Specialized's latest take and features cutting edge aerodynamic tweaks, weight savings, a new cockpit and more. The cockpit contains an internally routed Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 shifting and the bars are '"faster, lighter and stiffer" than previous iterations. The Roval CLX 64 disc wheels are the fastest and most efficient in crosswinds that they've tested and with their recent savings of 460 grams on overall weight, its one of the lightest out there too. For those of you who aren't satisfied with the second fastest, the Venge can be yours for the price of a small Kia. so the new Specialized Venge had better be fast. And the California bikemaker isn’t shy about saying just that, calling its latest bike “the new shape of speed.”

HemiSERE Titanium Lapel Knife
As a blade nerds who also love spy movies, whats not to like about the new Label Knife from HemiSERE? The knife is made from a titanium/ceramic composite, has a non-slip grip with a wharncliffe blade profile to maximize cutting ability and weighs in at less than a nickel, allowing you to easily conceal under your label without impacting your performance. The HemiSERE created what they dub 'glue dots' which are attached to the back of the knife and allow you to directly conceal under your label, sleeve, under a credit card or even in a slim phone case. Finally, the overall design and crafting of the blade is modeled after the same tools used by Agent of the Office of Strategic Services, a precursor to the CIA. Pretty badass, right?
