There’s one major piece of gear that sets mountain, road and gravel bikers apart; tires. And while switching out your set is frankly anything less than a walk (or ride) in the park, reTyre is hoping to simplify the process. The brand offers modular zipper tire skins. To use, fans can simply zip the tire skins on and off a pair of Retyre base tires with an attachment mechanism. Individual skins retail from $39 to $81, and the brand offers everything from gravel to trail to various ice and snow studded pieces. Best of all, reTyre claims that users should be able to change their ‘Tyres’ in just 30 seconds.
Today we’re looking at a new hunting scalpel, earbuds and a modular stove. This is Today in Gear.

These days, more and more shoes are moving away from traditional laces. Now, Altra Running has opted to add BOA’s Fit Lacing System to its signature Mont Blanc silhouette. Runners can simply turn a dial to create a personalized fit across the shoe to lock in their optimal fit and feel. At $210, the revamped model will also feature the brand’s trademark FootShape comfort tech, plus a Balanced Cushioning platform.
This new knife arrives as Hogue releases two new hunting knives for fall: the Extrak and Expel. Previously compared to the Gerber Vital or Kershaw Lonerock, this new scalpel will feature a replaceable, 2.5-inch stainless steel blade. Each knife comes with five blades and currently retails for $115. Its handle is made of 440C steel, a dual-action switch (that serves as an ejector and lock) and a letterboxed peel ply G-10 scale.
In the past, LG has released and highlighted new features on its earbuds like UV germ-killing tech and charging cases that can double as Bluetooth dongles. Now, it’s harnessing Dolby’s Head Tracking technology to equip its earbuds with an equalizer that, according to the brand, “recalibrates the sound as users move their heads for a more natural sound experience.” Currently available for $230, the earbuds also claim to offer greater bass and less vibration and feature the Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite (which was previously only offered on wired headphones).
The new collection features swim and activewear and is described by the brand as built to “move with you through workouts to those cool water plunges.” Made with a mix of recycled, bluesign® approved, and Fair Trade Certified materials – pieces across the collection are built for all-day comfort and activity. Pieces across the collection retail for $35 to $100 and offer features like a 4-way stretch, moisture-wicking properties, quick dry tech and UV protection.
Snow Peak’s Teppanyaki Burner comprises a portable stove, cartridge guard and removable iron plate. Fans can cook directly on the iron plate and then seamlessly break the entire setup down to clean. Previous (five-star) reviews have called the 11-pound device “easy to set up... easier to clean.” At $250, it’s a reliable portable stove to bring on the go, made even better by the brand’s complete ($95) kitchen tool set.
