The Mahindra GenZe — e-Bikes/Scooters


If you’re looking for a cleaner commute option, the GenZe 2.0 all-electric scooter is your best friend. Designed for commuters riding in city centers, the GenZe emits no greenhouse gases, runs on electricity instead of gasoline, and offers an easy to charge feature that will last 30 miles. Other useful features include generous storage space, earning it the nickname of “tiny two-wheeled pickup truck.”

And let’s not forget the e-Bikes. With multiple ride modes, a removable battery that plugs in anywhere, and a connected app, GenZe e-Bikes put the fun in functional. More:

Fossa Apparel — Clothing


Fossa Apparel is a family-owned, women-owned small business that believes in making clothes that are not only comfortable, but also affordable. Not only is Fossa Apparel the one-stop shop for active members of your family and friends, they even take custom orders and offer OEM/private label services.

Aptly located in the Innovation District, the company brings innovative designs and carefully manufactured apparel to your hands. The quality and affordability of their products will help offset the one-in-every-color splurge. More:

AlterG — Anti-Gravity Treadmills


AlterG makes mobility enhancement products that take physical therapy and athletic training to a whole new level — think anti-gravity treadmills and bionic legs. In fact, it is the world’s first anti-gravity treadmill that makes you lighter and lets you run or walk at 20–99 percent of your body weight.

Originally designed to help astronauts get exercise in space by adding pressure to simulate gravity, the NASA technology was flipped on its head to reduce gravity for earthlings instead. If you or a loved one is looking for athletic conditioning, or wants a workout without impacting their joints, or is rehabilitating from an injury or surgery, the anti-gravity treadmill guarantees a perfect workout every time. Might we suggest asking your favorite gym to invest in one of these?  More:

With patented and award-winning signal booster technology for the home, office, and car, Surecall products dramatically improve cellular reception, sound quality, data speeds, and reliability, all at an affordable price.  Earn the title of the best gift giver this year and invest for yourself as well to “raise your bars.” More:
