Extreme downhill skateboarding – a sport often referred to as insane and terrifying – is actually a precision dance between man and road, requiring the utmost in performance from both the rider and the piece of hardwood with four wheels attached to it. It’s fitting that Mercedes Benz chose to underscore the performance of the A45 AMG by pairing champion downhill skateboarder, Decio Lourenco, and racecar driver, Robbi Smith, in a duel on the Franschhoek Pass in South Africa. Combining grace and skill, both man and machine navigate this challenging road course in a race to the bottom. Insane? Yes. Message delivered? Without a doubt.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
