Bell Helmets took many of the same features from its popular XR Spherical helmet—including its “Deep Road” fit, ample venting, Fidlock buckle, Ionic+ antimicrobial comfort padding—to build the Falcon family of bike helmets that are both utilitarian and economic. Constructed with integrated Mips Evolve technology, these helmets were designed for day, night, dirt, pavement, and any two-wheel adventure you can throw at it. When the Falcons are released in January, they will include the Falcon XRV (with a visor) and Falcon XR (without a visor). The Falcon family’s features and options will perform in all conditions, making these helmets truly a one-and-done solution for your ride. Click here to learn more.
Bushnell recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the advent of the laser rangefinder for hunters. To commemorate that milestone, Bushnell has unveiled the Broadhead Laser Rangefinder, the most precise laser rangefinder of its era. At its core, the Broadhead is tailored around short-range accuracy for archers who need to know exact distances. The Broadhead’s 0.3-yard accuracy has been tested to deliver consistent ranges on any target, such as 3D targets and animal hides, regardless of lighting or reflectivity. And combined with +/- one-degree angle accuracy, it leaves no doubt about a bowhunter’s precise range to target. Click here to learn more.
