The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.



Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


It isn’t always easy to find a way to change up your Rolex. However, Everest Bands makes the best aftermarket watch bands you can find, all designed specifically to fit your Rolex with curved ends to remove the gap between the watch band and watch case for a perfect fit. The inspiration for Everest Band’s latest strap comes from Rolex’s long history in automobile racing — it’s been specifically designed to mimic the leather interior of a sports car. With three color combinations of perforated leather, you will be sure to find a match to yours, or to the one of your dreams. An embedded ABS plastic insert will also make sure the leather stays sharp while you use it. Once you have one of these for your Rolex, you may finally have an excuse to find a sports car to match.

Crankbrothers M5
Save $2: All the bells and whistles available on modern bicycles can make working on them seem rather daunting. But the reality is that you can do a lot of adjustments and fixes yourself if you have the proper tools — and you don’t need to strap some massive toolkit to your bike, either. The Crankbrothers M5, on sale at Amazon right now for just 11 bucks, has many of them covered.

Granted, you won’t be able to fix a flat or replace a chain with this gadget, but the included Philips #2 screwdriver and #3, 4, 5 and 6 hex wrenches are all you need to change your seat height, adjust your brakes, tighten up your headset, attach bells and lights or add a bottle cage. Plus, it weighs less than 3 ounces, making it easy to slip in your pocket or bike bag and forget all about it till someone on your ride has a hangup and you get to play hero. — Steve Mazzucchi
