For Those Looking to Drop Some Serious Coin

Our favorite high-end products of the year — tested, approved, and ready to wrap.

NSP 14′ Flatwater Coco Mat SUP

Made from earth-friendly coconut husks, the NSP 14’ Flatwater Coco Mat SUP is touted as being lighter and stronger than other boards on the market. While we can’t confirm that, we know that this flatwater board is great for speed and touring because it tracks so well. It’s a little narrow for the beginner paddler, so we recommend it for someone who already SUPs. The coconut also gives it a cool look. $1500.

Priority Bicycle

Thinking about a town bike? How about one that won’t grease up your fancy pants, won’t rust in the rain, and features a beautifully-designed frame? Priority makes maintenance- and rust-free bikes that are gorgeous to look at and cost half as much as competitors. Their design also includes a chain that doesn’t require lube. The company’s runaway Kickstarter success (their projected $30,000 skyrocketed to $550,000 in its 30-day window) is worth getting in on. And at this price? You’d be crazy not to. $400.

Trust us—she’ll love them. $90.

New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Trail Shoe

It’s the kind of trail running shoe just about everyone can agree on. New Balance’s Fresh Foam 980 Trail can play light, energetic and spry, or amply cushioned and cruisey, depending on your mood. It’s not our top pick for mountain running or rocky, rooty trails, but it’s one of the top shoes of the year for the miles on dirt roads and groomed trails that most guys grind out. $110.
