Ski Bike

H/T: Hi Consumption

Think of the SNOGO as a cross between a snowmobile and BMX bike, complete with an agile 3-ski design that allows for an unprecedented level of control on the slopes. The company says that learning to ride this is as easy as a bicycle. Priced at $1,299 and weighing in at just 32-pounds, thanks to an aluminum alloy fame, it boasts modular design for easy storage as well as transportation - skis are removable, so sticking it in a car trunk should be no problem.

These animal-themed balaclavas - a close-fitting garment covering the whole head and neck except for parts of the face, typically made of wool - may not have any integrated action cams or other technology, but they're definitely a conversation piece nonetheless.

Flyboard Pro

Zapata Racing has updated its Flyboard Pro and now this water hovercraft of sorts is more extreme than ever. A 59-foot hose attached to a watercraft, propels the rider 20-feet into the sky and, enabling those daring enough, to perform some crazy maneuvers. This updated model doesn't require a separate watercraft, but you'll have to purchase a separate piece. It works in both the ocean and in lakes, wherever there's at least 13-feet of water depth and room to maneuver. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Jet Boards




You could either swim, surf or shred waves with one of these awesome jet boards. Starting off, we have the Radinn WaketJet Cruise, a carbon-Kevlar board combines the agility and speed of wakeboarding with the freedom of surfing. Its powered by a lithium-ion battery, brushless motor, and is controlled with a waterproof wireless remote. The built-in jet-propulsion motor can achieve top speed of 25 knots. Next up, there's JetSurf, a carbon fiber surfboard powered by a two-stroke 100cc engine, making it a hybrid jet-ski / surfboard of sorts. It can reach a top speed of 40mph, and has a 45-mile range on a full tank, giving riders a solid 1.5-hours of fun out on the water. It's controlled via an electronic leash, and even comes with an emergency kill cord if things get out of control. Last, but certainly not least, the FreeStyle PowerSki JetBoard is driven by a 35hp 330cc STXT engine and boasts a performance-reinforced drivetrain, watertight heavy duty electrical connectors, as well as an anti-vibration rubber suspended exhaust.

Mattracks Motorized Snowboard Powerboard

While Mattracks is best known for their rubber track conversion systems for wheeled-vehicles - ranging in size from Humvees to ATVs - their snowboard-inspired Powerboard is definitely now slouch. The most accurate description would probably be a stand-up snowmobile of sorts, one using a proprietary design that allows the ground-side of the track to bend as the rider leans into a corner, thus provides steering. It's powered by a mid-mounted 6.5HP Zhendong single-cylinder gas motor, with a centrifugal clutch hooked up to a chain drive, good for a top speed of 18mph.Continue reading for another video and more information.

Mokai ES-Kape

This looks like a normal kayak at first, but the jet-propelled Mokai ES-Kape is anything but a simple water cruiser. In addition to a modular design - breaks into 3 pieces - which allows easy transportation, it's powered by a removable 4-stroke Subaru engine good for speeds up to 17 miles per hour on water. "The MOKAI watercraft idea was born from the need to provide a product that allowed fishermen, hunters and explorers a craft that granted access to those hard to reach upstream or shallow area locations. It had to be lightweight, durable, easy to transport, environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient," said the company. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
