Living in Southern California, we're huge fans of ocean kayaking, yet find it pretty tough to fit kayaks into our midsize cars. San Francisco based Oru knows the struggle and has been creating compact and 'foldable' kayaks for years. Their latest iteration - the Oru Kayak Coast XT - is their biggest kayak yet and can support up to 400 pounds. The form is based off of traditional Arctic canoes and measures at 33" x 12" x 19" fully compacted and only 34 pounds, much lighter and more portable than standard ocean kayaks. The longer build profile allows you to travel faster and with more stability than past models. The Coast XT is not cheap, costing $2499, but the convenience and ease of travel make it worth it.

Fastest Race Bike Ever? Specialized Venge Road Bike
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.”
