Holiday Gift Guide for Cyclists
The holiday season is among us and in addition to all of our favorite things—pumpkin spice lattes, holiday cheer, and spending time with the ones we love—it’s also time to share a little something with the people that mean the most to us. For those shopping for the cyclist(s) in your life, look no further than our holiday gift guide for the best gifts that are sure to be a hit.
Cyclists can ride in style with graphic socks by Darn Tough. They don’t just look good, they perform well, too. Made of moisture wicking, all-weather merino wool and featuring True Seamless undetectable seam fusion, the ¼ light socks fit well and handle even better. Plus, they’re guaranteed for life. Say goodbye to holey socks! Darn Tough socks make the perfect stocking stuffer for the cyclist in your life.
Just because winter is coming doesn’t mean you can’t keep cycling! Give the gift of warmth with the Pearl Izumi Skull Cap Retain. It fits perfectly underneath helmets and features P.R.O. Thermal Dry fabric for quick-drying warmth. It even has a ponytail port for long hair!
Rear bike lights are essential to keep cyclists visible to motorists while cycling on the road both day and night. Cygolite’s Hotrod 50 provides 50 lumens of wide coverage. It features 6 different light modes and has a flexible mount that makes it easy to attach. Plus, with 100 hours of run time and a USB rechargeable battery, cyclists will be able to stay charged up and lit up for a long time.
No cyclist’s gear bag is complete without a multi-tool (or two!). Topeak’s ALiEN II 26 Multi-Tool is highly rated and loved by cyclists because of all the great tools it comes with—26 to be exact! The ALiEN II is made of high quality materials so you can be sure it will last for a long time (definitely longer than your inner tube!).
You don’t have to look too hard to find plenty of helmet options, but the Giro Foray MIPS helmet is a great choice for anyone looking for a premium helmet at an affordable price. Cyclists with the Giro Foray especially love its great fit, which includes Giro’s Roc Loc 5 fit system with two-way fit adjustment. Plus, with MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) included, you can be rest assured that your loved one is better protected against certain impacts.
Don’t risk having your phone fall out of your pocket on the road or trails! The Rokform Pro Series Bike Mount features a dual retention lock system which encompasses both RokLock mounting technology and guaranteed RokSafe magnet mountability. The Pro Series Bike Mount features a range of motion that allows riders to tilt the mount from -20 to +55 Degrees, so cyclists will always have the perfect view of their phone’s screen.
The Rokform iPhone Pro Series Bike Mount is CNC Machined from 6061 T-6 aircraft grade aluminum and weighs in at less than 1 ounce. The mount is easy to install and replaces the top cap of a bike's 1 1/8" threadless steer tube so whether it’s tracking progress or navigating the trails, cyclists can be confident their phone stays secure no matter how hard they ride.
All bike mount kits come with Rokform’s most popular phone case, the Rugged, featuring magnet mounting and certified military drop test protection. The Rugged case also functions as a solo phone case—not just for use with the bike mount. That’s basically two presents in one—a win-win for everyone! If you're buying the mount for someone that already owns a Rokform case, the bike mount can be purchased for only $69.99.
Revelate Designs Terrapin System Saddle Pack is the perfect for storing your gear on rides both short and long. This bag only weighs just over one pound but can fit up to 15 liters of gear. It also has an air-purge valve and cam-locking closure buckles to compress and tighten up when you’re not filling it to the brim. The pack is also 100% waterproof so gear will stay dry and protected from mud, rain, and anything else you get into.
