As we ride towards the holiday season, ROKFORM is rolling out our holiday gift guide for cyclists! It’s time to get the gears turning and start thinking about great gift ideas for the cycling fanatics in your life. This guide features bike-inspired gifts and has a mix of products from ROKFORM and other brands that any cyclist will love to receive this holiday season.

Top Rated Gifts for Cyclists

1. ROKFORM Bicycle Phone Mount

ROKFORM bike phone mounts make for excellent gifts to upgrade any cycling setup, even for the rider who seems to already have everything. If you're shopping for a cyclist who doesn’t use a ROKFORM bike mount yet, this is the main present we recommend. The secure and easy-to-install mounts position the phone well within view for convenient access to maps or ride tracking apps, all while freeing up precious jersey pocket or bag space.

With two different bicycle phone mount options available, you’re sure to find a compatible mount. Not sure which mount to get? Keep reading to find out which one will be best suited for that lucky cyclist you know.

Sport Series Bike Phone Mount

The ROKFORM Sport Series Bike Phone Mount is our most versatile mount that installs in mere seconds. There are three different-sized hook-and-loop straps so you can always have the right length to fit on the handlebars or stem— the mount works with any bar sized from 7/8” to 2.25”. This makes it a great gift when you aren’t sure of the exact handlebar diameter of the gift recipient’s bike.

Once the bike mount is strapped to the handlebars, cyclists simply lock their ROKFORM-protected phone into the mount using our patented Twist-Lock system. The combination of the ROKFORM case and mount ensures a strong and convenient connection.

The hook-and-loop straps make it easy to remove the mount when not needed or swap between bikes, a huge plus for cyclists with more than one bike. The Sport Series Bike Mount is perfect for any bike and can even be installed on other bars, including indoor trainers, strollers, and even shopping carts.

ROKFORM V4 Pro Series Stem Mount

The V4 Pro Series Stem Mount is the ultimate mounting solution for cyclists. The mount installs directly into the headset for the most secure hold, replacing the bike’s standard headset cap and screw. The low-profile mounting solution looks sleek and keeps your phone right where you want it, even over rough and bumpy terrain.

As the only CNC-machined aircraft-grade aluminum bike mount on the market, the black anodized finish blends seamlessly into many bike frames. The dual retention locking system features the Twist-Lok mechanism and a strong integrated magnet, in addition to the included safety lanyard. Users can easily adjust the angle of the mount and find their perfect viewing position, too. For the dedicated cyclists and heavy-hitting mountain bikers out there, the V4 Pro Series Mount keeps your phone secure no matter how hard you ride.

2. Gore Wear C5 GORE-TEX Gloves

As we head into the cooler and wetter winter season, a pair of waterproof gloves is a must-have for any four-season cyclists. The C5 GORE-TEX gloves are lightweight, waterproof, and include touch screen conductivity so they can still be worn while using a smartphone. The adjustable cuff and grippy silicone print on the gloves ensure a comfortable ride in chilly conditions. Available in a wide range of sizes from XS to XXXL, these winter accessories are made for all cyclists.

4. Wahoo TICKR FIT Heart Rate Monitor

The Wahoo TICKR FIT Heart Rate Armband is the perfect gift for cyclists looking for a more comfortable heart rate solution than the typical chest strap. Loaded with Bluetooth and ANT+ technology, the armband seamlessly pairs with fitness apps, smartphones, and GPS bike computers and watches to provide accurate heart rate and calorie burn data.

It’s water-resistant and has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 30 hours. Many cyclists already use Wahoo products such as their indoor bike trainers or cycling computers, so this accessory is the perfect addition to their data-rich training routine!

5. ROKFORM Phone Case

Of course, all ROKFORM bike mounts must be used in conjunction with a ROKFORM smartphone case. There are two great options to choose from: the heavy-duty Rugged Case and the transparent Crystal Case. Dive into the details of each protective phone case style below:

ROKFORM Rugged Phone Case

The Rugged Cases feature a black textured design with premium materials that exceed military-grade drop protection standards. These durable cases stand up to heavy use outdoors, including road cycling, mountain biking, or backcountry exploration. Ride with peace of mind that dropping your phone on the ground won’t mark the end of your device. Even more, Rugged Cases have an integrated twist-lock retention system and magnets that are compatible with ROKFORM’s bike phone mounts.

ROKFORM Crystal Phone Case

ROKFORM Crystal Cases feature a transparent back so the natural color of your phone can still be seen. Just like the Rugged Series cases, Crystal Cases offer the same impressive amount of drop protection to defend against impacts from up to 6 feet, complete with premium materials and reinforced corners. This way, they can protect their phone when cycling and attach to ROKFORM’s wide range of premium accessories.

ROKFORM Cases are available for the latest Apple and Samsung models, including all versions of the recently released iPhone 15 cases. If you're giving ROKFORM to someone without an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device, you can choose the Universal Adapter, which can be used with any smartphone or flat-backed smartphone case. This way, the user can also access the full range of products in the ROKFORM ecosystem, including the phone car mount, charging add-ons, and MagSafe case accessories.

6. Chrome Barrage Cargo Backpack

If you or the lucky person on your gift list commutes by bike, they’ve probably heard of the urban cycling brand Chrome Industries. Famous for their classic messenger bags and bike-specific gear, Chrome’s durable products make excellent gifts that will last for years. To change it up a bit from the traditional messenger bag recommendation, we suggest checking out the Barrage Cargo Backpack, available in tons of color options.

Chrome Barrage Cargo Cycling Backpack in Black

This versatile backpack has a utilitarian yet sleek design that seamlessly transitions from the street into the office. The adjustable, heavy-duty cargo mesh on the outside of the bag extends the carrying capacity and is a great place to stuff an extra layer or helmet. The fully-welded main compartment is waterproof so you can commute in the city rain or shine, including room for a 15” laptop. The Barrage Cargo Backpack will easily become your trusted daily carrier and works great with Chrome’s extensive collection of handy accessories, too.

7. DeFeet Cycling Socks

When gift shopping for a cyclist, you simply can’t go wrong with a pair of socks. While it may seem like a generic stocking stuffer, bikers go crazy for sock fashion and are always happy to add a pair to the collection. DeFeet has been manufacturing cycling socks in the USA since 1992 and their sport-specific socks are a staple of many cyclist’s wardrobe.

The DeFeet Aireator 6” Barnstormer Ombre Socks are a great option that are available in a range of bold colors and sizes. The gradient ombre pattern looks great and adds the perfect amount of flair to other apparel, whether it's a casual outfit or cycling getup. Quality cycling socks like these cost less than $15 and are an excellent example that fun cycling gifts don’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

8. Road Runner California Burrito

Handlebar bags have recently become one of the hottest bike accessories out there. If the cyclist you’re buying for doesn’t already have one, the Road Runner California Burrito is a fantastic handlebar bag for daily commuters and hardcore athletes alike. The cylindrical bag has movable straps to match your handlebar setup and provides 3.5 liters of space to fit your favorite clothing, nutrition, and gear inside.

The convenient bag comes in tons of cool color options and is made of durable, water-resistant Cordura fabric. It’s a great size for carrying around a bit of food, small tools, an extra layer, and more— many cyclists don’t want to carry a full-sized pannier but need sufficient space for their riding essentials. There are even two pockets on either side of the bag for quick access to the things you need most, like energy bars or multi-tool. This piece of bike swag is hand-made in the US and a go-to gift this season!

9. Cinelli Cycling Cap

Cinelli is a legendary name in cycling and continues to show off its bold Italian designs through its diverse collection of cycling caps. Partly a functional piece of apparel and arguably mostly a fashion accessory, cycling caps are a fun way to display your personal style. Cinelli takes the cake when it comes to cap designs, regularly releasing new models made by collaborating visual artists.

One size fits all with these caps, but there are different 3-panel or 4-panel constructions to choose from depending on the model. Making up for the lack of size options, there are virtually endless designs and colors to pick between so feel free to let your creativity run wild. Similar to cycling socks, these caps make for a totally fun and affordable gift for the stylish cyclist in your life!

10. Wahoo Kickr Core Bike Trainer

Searching for the ultimate indoor cycling trainer? Look no further than the Wahoo Kickr Core Trainer that is sure to transform the training experience. This direct-drive smart trainer replaces the rear wheel of the bike and hooks up with immersive training programs like Zwift for an even more realistic rider experience. This $699 trainer comes with a 1-year Zwift membership so riders can immediately hop on and enjoy working towards their fitness goals.

The Kickr Core accurately measures speed, distance, power, and cadence data so riders can track their results. The ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity is compatible with other devices like cycling computers and heart rate monitors for an even more comprehensive and data-rich training routine.
