Avionics is a new startup melding the owners’ fascination with aviation and transportation to create a gorgeous eBike that combines retro style and modern design. The Avionics V1 electric bicycle has a top speed of over 35mph, a range just under 75 miles in street mode and a two- to three-hour charging time. It also has bright, powerful LED lights built-in both front and back, disc brakes on both sides and a fat 26″ wheel and tire package. Technically and functionally it’s a wonderfully built bike that will perform as well as anything else on the market, but the Avionics V1 eBike sets itself apart from all competitors in the design department. The retro style combines wood accents in the seat, handlebars, forks and the motor case with the matte black or bare metal pieces to create an overall silhouette that’s aerodynamic and aeronautical. Pre-orders for the Avionics V1 begin in September on Indiegogo.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
