Gadgets and Gear That’ll Make You King of the Beach

Beach cruisers may be comfortable to ride, but they’re basically two-wheeled, non-motorized versions of these. The Globe Live 3, however, looks cool while still being beach-friendly. It boasts a belt drive instead of a traditional chain, meaning it’s ultra-durable, grease-free, and immune to sand gumming up the works. A double-leg kickstand makes it easy to load food, drinks, and your fishin’ dynamite into the basket, which accommodates up to 55 pounds. Still not convinced? Globe is owned by Specialized, the choice of this year’s Tour de France champ Alberto Contador, so bikeheads will know you’re legit … even if you’re not.
