There can’t be a better way to show how much you care your favorite cyclist then gifting a bike helmet.
Helmets save lives everyday, and there’s really a difference among the safest bike helmets and the rest, that’s why we recommend the Rudy Project Racemaster, ranked in the top ten safest helmets in 2021 by Virginia Tech.
These headphones indeed use the advanced bone-conduction technology, which means the sound is transmitted to your cheekbones instead of your eardrums, leaving the earing free for a maximum awareness of the surrounding, while still enjoying your favorite music or podcast.
If you know someone who’s addicted to biking but can’t find the time for long outdoor rides, a turbo trainer or a set of bike rollers are fantastic gifts.
This indoor bike trainer has a large flywheel that replicates the oscillation of a bike on a real road, this gives a really realistic feeling, especially when performing high–energy activities like steep climbs or sprints.
MTB hydration packs are mountain bike specific backpacks meant to hold some gear but mostly water.
As reaching for the water bottle during a MTB ride can be quite difficult and dangerous, hydration packs solve the problem with the use of a rubber pipe that’s always positioned near the cyclist’s mouth.
The Osprey Raptor 10 is our favorite hydration pack. It has a dedicated reservoir compartment with Hydraulics LT 2.5-liter reservoir included and features a really high-quality built.
Pannier are the iconic piece of gear in the world of bike touring, when you think about bike travelers you always think of pannier bags.
Most bike tourers still use four panniers, although hybrid bikepacking setups are becoming more and more common. So you can go for a no-mistake choice by purchasing a couple of Ortlieb Back Rollers Classic, the most famous bicycle touring panniers.
A great alternative to a backpack, a bike trunk bag is a piece of storage gear that can be mounted on the top of the back rack. It’s stable and safe, and relieves the bike rider from the weight of a backpack on his/her shoulders.
Topeak makes always great product, and this rack trunk bag is definitely one of those. A sure win.
