Today in Gear: In-the-Know on New Releases

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news from Gear Patrol Studios.

Maserati MSG Racing just unveiled its very first ABB FIA Formula E World Championship race car, the Tipo Folgore Gen3, which will compete in the 9th Formula E season. Maserati remains the first Italian automaker in the Formula E competition, and its new car is described as the "fastest, more-technologically advanced, and most efficient Formula E car to date." Its powerful front and rear powertrains deliver up to 600kW of regenerative power and 95% power efficiency, and the vehicle is capable of harnessing over 40 percent of the energy it needs per race from just regenerative braking alone. Definitively designed to impress, Maserati's racer will soon head to Spain for pre-season testing before kicking off the race calendar season on January 14 in Mexico City.

Today we’re taking a look at a new folding knife, Luminox watch and weather-proof boots. This is Today in Gear.

Forget Champagne, Celebrate The Impending New Year with Whiskey
Barrell Craft Spirits

When the ball drops this time around, ditch the bubbly and consider toasting with Barrell Craft Spirits' latest New Year 2023 Limited Edition bourbon. Every autumn for the past six years, the award-winning team has created "a very special blend of bourbons" to mark another trip around the sun. This year's expression is an exciting blend of the brand’s favorite five, six, seven, eight and 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskeys. The spirit opens with brioche and caramel on the nose and gives way to notes of black cherry soda, roasted molé and vanilla on the palate, where a venerable (cask strength) heat is kept in check by syrupy oak sugars. The finish boasts candied chili pepper and a flash of preserved lemon that gives way to fleeting wisps of horchata, white chocolate and cashew.

This limited-edition version will make a great gift for any budding gearhead, as the No. 08 is always a great first knife for new collectors.
