Odd, clever and crazy-light micro-camper trailers of 2022
This year saw the introduction of some of the most compact, lightweight camping trailers we've seen in our decades of covering new RV launches - a veritable forest of vehicle-based fast and light backpacking options. In fact, we set out to put together a list of the smallest, most innovative RVs in general, both motorized and towable, and quickly found it filled with smart, tiny trailers. The majority of these trailers weigh under 1,000 lb (454 kg), good for towing with small crossovers and cars as well as electric vehicles, and the smallest of the bunch weigh in around 500 lb (227 kg), light enough for some motorcycles and three-wheelers.

Scott ebike hits new benchmark for ridiculously clean, light design
Scott's Addict eRide launched as one of the sleekest, lightest ebikes in the road market earlier this year, and the all-new Lumen eRide follows suit in the eMTB market. One of the lightest full-suspension electric mountain bikes out there, the Lumen barely looks like an ebike thanks to a compact mid-motor, frame-integrated battery pack and internal rear shock. It'll definitely perform like an electric on the trail, though, firing out up to 50 Nm (36.9 lb-ft) to help the rider breeze through monstrous climbs and throw a little extra oomph into each pedal stroke.

These nodules are believed to be formed by a number of the slowest geological processes known to science, including the precipitation of metals out of seawater in the presence of high oxygen levels. Researchers estimate it takes several million years for a nodule to grow by a single centimeter.
