#1 Lacoste LT12 Tennis Racket
The alligator brand that’s renowned for their classic tennis shirts and shoes have really stepped it up in 2015 by creating the world’s first tennis racket that combines a unique wood and graphite construction. The goal is simple: create a beautiful piece that’s also functional in the 21st century of power-play tennis whilst giving a nod to its heritage. The final result is an astonishing piece of kit that features a 70% wood composite (Walnut, Balsa and Lime Tree) against a 30% high modulus graphite build to ensure ultimate precision and strength. Bear in mind, all this innovation and heritage doesn’t come cheap. It retails for about AU$800.

The dual tracked vehicle which is very much like a mini tank allows the rider to hop on like they’re riding a jet ski to demolish any terrain – mud, shallow water, dunes, rock trails. You name it, the DTV can traverse it. Max speed is rated at 40km/h powered by a  4-stroke engine. Direction is controlled by pivoting. We highly recommend you check out the rad video promo here.
