Yes, that is the last thing you would expect. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our hearts will beat faster from outdoor & action sports gear. And whether that is shown in Friedrichshafen at the ISPO or elsewhere … that does not matter to us.

From 7 to 11 December, the Masters of LXRY, a trade fair for luxury, was organised in the Amsterdam RAI. We got the chance to visit this show. With a little bit of hesitation. The Maserati’s, BMW’s and watches we left aside, though that is also fun toys. Our focus was on the outdoor and sports-related items.

Here are a few ideas for under the Christmas tree.

1. M1-Sporttechnik Spitzing MTB E-bike

The M1-Sporttechnik Spitzing World Cup Edition mountain bike is made of high modulus carbon and is just a bit different than the E-bikes that we are used to. The M1-Sporttechnik E-bikes are developed, produced and assembled in Germany. The Spitzing is equipped with drive technology, the bottom bracket of which provides an output of 120 newtons.

Each version can optionally be supplied with a battery of 815 to 1015 watts. This allows you to cover distances from 120 km to 160 km without any problems. The M1-Sporttechnik E-bikes are imported in the Netherlands and delivered by Beterbike.nl.

The Spitzing prices go from € 7899, –

2. Calletti inflatable SUP Boards

The SUP cannot be ignored anymore as water sports. The inflatable paddle boards from Calletti are light, portable and ready to go on the water. Made of ultra durable PVC with drop-stitch construction and a top of EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) anti-slip foam for the best quality finish.

The Calletti boards are delivered with a handy SUP monkey bag where you can also efficiently use the carbon paddle, pump and repair kit. The boards are suitable for both the professional and the beginner because the SUP is exceptionally stable in the water.

Prices of the Calletti SUP boards are between € 749, – and € 949, -.

3. WaterRower rowing machine

If there is no skiing or snowboarding for you this winter, you can always keep your fitness and strength up with the WaterRower. With rowing, you can burn more than 700 calories per hour. One of the most effective ways to build – or keep – condition – and burn fat.

This device does not even work in the living room. It is made from sustainably harvested hardwood that comes from the renewable forests in the eastern United States. The heart of the rowing machine is formed by the unique WaterFlywheel that ensures its dynamic and infinitely variable (water) resistance. Due to the smooth movement and the minimal noise, it is also a pleasure to use.

Prices of the WaterRower are between € 999, – and € 2499, –
