Nike Air Force 1 Hyperfuse

Posted: June 15, 2011 in Sneakers

Viewed as blasphemous by purists, the so called “hybrid” or “fusion” designs are often lambasted as “concepts that lacked imagination” or simply as “marketing ploy”, A conjuncture applied to most with exception of one, the Air Force One Foamposite which debuted last summer during the World Basketball Festival. From its success and acceptance by evenly the staunchest of critics, Nike Sportswear will release its follow-up next month, the Air Force One Hyperfuse. Liken to the Foamposite construction, which requires a special molding method, the Hyperfuse relies on composite bonding under high heat and pressure (see animation below). The unorthodox methodology ensures stability, breathability and durability. It also creates an unique silhouette against the traditional backdrop of the AF1. 6 solid yet vibrant colorways will be available during the first run, with more to follow in the coming months.  Via Freshness Mag

Release Date: July 2011

Audi Releases R8 GT Spyder

Posted: June 13, 2011 in Cars

Since the R8′s debut, Audi has been slowly been pushing the car further upmarket with new performance models. Much like the rest of the brand, we are stoked that the company is paying attention to enthusiasts in a big way.

Unfortunately for us, with the R8 GT you’d have to be a pretty well-heeled enthusiast. In April, Audi released some images of its upcoming A1 as well as renderings of an R8 GT convertible model. Now the car is official, announced for sale in Germany (pricing and announcement for North America is coming later).

The R8 GT follows on the heels of the coupe model, which is priced at $196,800 (not including a $1,250 destination and dealer charge). That puts it at about $34,000 above the previous range-topper the R8 5.2 Spyder.

The R8 GT Spyder looks to top the R8 GT’s Coupe price record for Audi as Spyder models always command higher asking prices.

Like it’s coupe brother, the R8 GT Spyder gets a bump of 35 horsepower over the 5.2, good for a total of 560. Combined with a reduction in weight of 187 pounds, 0-62 arrives in just 3.8 seconds, along with a top speed of 197 mph. Both numbers are down slightly from the coupe’s 3.5 second 0-62 run and 199 mph top speed. Pricing information should be forthcoming and the R8 GT Spyder will most likely be limited to the same 333 unit global run as the coupe model.

Casio G Shock – June 2011 | New Releases

In the market for a sliver of sophistication without breaking the bank? Perhaps the June 2011 Collection from Casio G-Shock maybe of interest to you then. Among the 8 new timepieces to be available this month, 3 are from the anticipated Metallic Gold models, additions to the Black × Gold Series. Choices ranging from GA-110GB-1AJF with its popular large dial face, the classic GD-100GB-1JF, and GDF-100GB-1JF a technical heavyweight, each comes of a polished gold inlay on the dial face. With a contrast black trim (in shock absorbing composite) and strategically placed LED backlight, all complete a dramatic presentation.

However, if all that “bling” just isn’t your thing, G-Shock added 2 collaborative models, the GW-6900K-7JR and GW-9201KJ-9JR RISEMAN to benefit 2 environmental advocacy groups, EARTHWATCH and kurkku. Part of Love The Sea and The Earth Collection, both watches encompassed brilliant colorways, commemorative etching and special packaging. Portions of each sale will go to benefit both causes. On the technical front, all except the 3 Metallic Gold editions, have MULTI BAND 6 radio transceiver for automatic time adjustment via atomic clocks. With 6 transmission points along the Northern Hemisphere, its a clear advantage over the previous radio transceiver system. This was especially evident when the massive earthquake back in March damaged one of the antenna in Japan. All 8 G-Shock model for June 2011 will be available at G-Shock retail locations worldwide in the coming weeks.  Via Freshness Mag
