A league apart from your typical loop pedal, the new RC-10R allows real-time creativity and sequencing thanks to two unique song sections, intros/endings and rhythm fills, so you can link between verses and bridges seamlessly. There’s also a huge built-in 280-rhythm style library, onboard storage for 99 phrase memories and 50 user rhythms.

A blessing for all the hatchback-owning electric surfboard obsessives, Lampuga has engineered an inflatable, fully functional ride that can go anywhere your car can. We’re talking a 14hp, 50kph, double-layer PVC hull jetboard that folds down, thanks to the detachable 3.7kWh Li-ion battery. With the body fully inflated, the battery slots seamlessly in the centre.

The Rare Patek

This classic 40mm steel Aquanaut is elevated by a vivid red rubber strap and minute track – the hue is a nod to the signature colour of Singapore, the city in which this watch debuted – and it’s limited to 500 examples. If you can’t snag this highly sought-after piece, unlimited editions in white gold with blue and green dials are roaming the wild.

Segway’s fierce-looking hybrid ATV delivers up to 181bhp and a hulking 259Nm of torque channelled through the rear wheels. Dual A-arm suspension in the front and a multi-link trailing arm in the rear, plus three cooling systems and both a downhill braking system and four-wheel hydraulic brakes, make for an impressive off-road offering.
