The Chargeboard by Bjorn van den Hout is a longboard that generates electricity while you ride.

The Chargeboard captures the kinetic energy from riding with two dynamos in the rear axle and converts it into electricity that can be used to power a variety of small electronics. After you are done riding, you sit down and recharge your cellphone wherever. One hour of cruising should give you roughly enough power to recharge about eight times.

In addition to the Chargeboard’s power generating capabilities, it also comes with a built-in speaker system. So when you get the park, you can charge your phone and listen to some music while you are there.

The board contains a side docking station for iPhone’s and an external 2.0 USB port for other cellphones. A 3.5mm audio jack input also allows for a range of devices to be played through the onboard speaker.

For more information about the Chargeboard, check out their website: chargeboard.nl

The AvaTech SP1 avalanche probe is an advanced sensor that crowd sources its data to help backcountry skiers share snowpack readings.

While there is currently a variety of snow safety gear that can help improve your odds of surviving an avalanche, the Ava Tech SP1 hopes to help people avoid them all together.  This newly developed collapsible device houses an array of sensors, including a digital force sensor, multiple optical sensors, a depth sensor, a range finder, an accelerometer, an inclinometer, and a GPS. Together these sensors record snowpack layers, even ones only a fraction of a millimeter thick, and automatically syncs the results to the users smartphone as well as the AvaTech data network.

Not only does the device provide fast, reliable, and easy-to-understand information about the current conditions to the individual user, but if enough people adopt the technology, there is the potential to collect multiple data points from each user. This would allow individuals, in theory, to check snowpack conditions in an area before even leaving their home.

The pro version of the SP1 will be available this fall for $2,249, with a consumer version coming out in 2015 that will likely cost around $500.

For more information about the SP1 and AvaTech, check out their website: avatech.com

Death Valley | Overland Journal Fall 2014

Death Valley | Overland Journal Fall 2014

Michael van Vliet

In January 2014, we ventured into the desert to wrangle our full-size adventure bikes (and side-car) up the infamous Lippincott Trail of Death Valley. Our travails were documented in the article  “In the Shadow of the Valley of Death” which is featured in Overland Journal’s Fall 2014 issue. Below is an excerpt from the article:...

In January 2014, we ventured into the desert to wrangle our full-size adventure bikes (and side-car) up the infamous Lippincott Trail of Death Valley. Our travails were documented in the article  “In the Shadow of the Valley of Death” which is featured in Overland Journal’s Fall 2014 issue.

Below is an excerpt from the article:

 

We were booking it up California’s SR14 at 85 mph en route from Los Angeles to Death Valley. The smell of fast food fryolators and diesel exhaust fumes hung heavy in the morning air as we passed through the sickly suburban decay of the Antelope Valley. Riding lead on his white Triumph Tiger 800 XC was Sinuhe Xavier, senior photographer for Overland Journal, outdoorsman at large, and our guide for this trip. Behind him came Jonah Smith and Palmer West, co-founders of Aether, on a pair of BMW 1200GSs. As creative executive for Aether and field reporter on this trip, I filled out the middle on my yellow 1150GS. Following close behind was Davide Berruto, founder of Shelter Half, on his army-green 1200GS, while Raphael Bertulous, instructor for Rawhyde Adventures, rode sweep on an 1150GS—with a sidecar contraption that could only be described as The Beast.

Sinuhe came up with the route, if it could even be called that. It was more of a vague notion that meandered through the middle of the park; one that included lots of dirt tracks and climbs. In theory this sounded great, that is, it sounded extremely difficult. But from the confines of our Los Angeles offices we were liable to agree to anything so long as it got us out from behind our desks. Sinuhe had ridden on a few of the trails in the past, but many of the sections were unknown to us. To fill in the blanks we consulted an assortment of National Park Services maps, Google satellite imagery, trail reports from sporadically updated dirt bike forums, and some guy Sinuhe knows named “Jack.”  As we turned north onto Highway 395, none of us knew exactly what it was that we had signed up for. The trip had the potential to be a cakewalk or a complete suffer fest. Although, having been on enough of these types of adventures to know better, I’m not sure why we would think it would be the former.

 

Read the full article in Overland Journal’s Fall 2014 issue.  Available on magazines stands now.

Hedon partnered with 4h10 to create this beautiful limited edition open faced helmet.

Combining a vintage aesthetic with modern technology, this helmet is a mix of 1970’s style and state-of-the-art protection. The outer shell is made from Kevlar fibers with a ECE 22.05 safety rating, while the plush interior is lined with anti-bacterial suede with hand stitched leather seams. The paint job and optional bubble visor, however, looks like something straight out of Easy Rider.

The helmet is available in sizes from XS through to XXL with a lead time of 2-3 weeks, due to the fact that they’re made to order.

With an elevated aesthetic and robust functionality, the Nomad Hatchet and Knife are stylish enough to be in an art show yet practical enough to be used out in the field.

Nomad is a project by Alexey Pavo, an industrial design graduate of Israel’s Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, that honors his family’s tradition of outdoor traveling and camping. Combing his love for the wilderness as well as his passion for industrial design, he launched Nomad with his own version of a hatchet and knife.

The tools are comprised of traditional materials but have been assembled using innovative manufacturing techniques. Bridging the gap between old and new, the Nomad collection looks to make versatile outdoor essentials for the modern pioneer.
