Editor’s Picks: Bourbon Whiskey, Triumph Motorcycle and Royal Navy Coat

From a pair of pioneering earphones from British-based Nothing to Blenheim Forge’s latest carving kit, this is what we want this week…

This week, we’re hyped for our Editor’s Picks. They’re above, beyond and innovative to the point of inventive excess. Take Ford’s final GT, for example; a hypercar of exclusive, streamlined proportions to wave off the landmark model. Or bicycle brand Bianchi’s new ‘Oltre RC’ — purportedly the first ‘hyperbike’ marketed by the Italian manufacturer.

Even Patricks (many a man’s trusted grooming guide) has offered up a moisturiser that has been ‘hyper-concentrated’ to ensure its richness and hydrating properties. Through in a pair of hyper-futuristic, cyber-forward headphones from Nothing and Blenheim Forge’s newest knife (forged from, would you believe, hypereutectoid steel), and you’ve got about as high energy an Editor’s Picks as we’ve ever put together…

Shifting gears: Bianchi ‘Oltre RC’ Hyperbike

Bianchi has been making bicycles since 1885 — making it the oldest manufacturer of two-wheelers the world has ever seen. So it tracks that the brand’s first ‘hyperbike’ would further their revolutionary reputation. And, with patent-pending ‘Air Deflectors’ and reengineered carbon fibre for ultimate frame stiffness, the ‘Oltre RC’ seems to fit the bill.
