StoreYourBoard Timber Ski and Snow Wall Rack ($60)

(Chris Philpot)

Skis propped against a garage wall take up space and inevitably clatter to the ground. Keep yours organized with this simple-but-pretty red oak rack, which bolts to the wall and holds up to eight pairs of skis (or four snowboards) on horizontal arms.

Küat NV 2.0 Bike Rack ($649) with Phat Bike Kit ($10)

(Chris Philpot)

Get your whip to the trail with this hitch-mount rack. It fits rubber up to 4.8 inches wide and flips down with the push of a foot pedal for easy loading. We love the integrated bike stand that pops out of the rack.
