Whether you're shopping for a loved one's birthday present, or you've drawn an awkward colleague in the office Secret Santa, finding the perfect gift can be a bit of a minefield. If this person happens to be a cyclist, then you’re in luck! Why not take some inspiration from our ideas below.
VEL 9 Piece Hex Key Set
Every cyclist needs a selection of good quality tools for at-home maintenance, and the VEL 9 piece Hex Key Set is just that. With the hex bits ranging from 1.5mm to 10mm, this set will allow you to perform a range of bike repairs and adjustments, and each tool is constructed from tough 6150 Chromium-Vanadium steel.
Squirt Long Lasting Dry Chain Lube
Not only will Squirt Long Lasting Dry Chain Lube keep everything running smoothly, but it'll also extend the miles you can ride before re-application. A win-win for most riders. As a wax emulsion, it coats the chain, reducing resistance, and excess wax is shed, along with dust and dirt, so there'll be no grinding paste that clogs the chain.
Thanks to this formula, Squirt is effective in both road cycling and mountain biking scenarios and across all conditions. Gift this Squirt Lube to a cyclist in your life and although it may not give their chain the shiny, just cleaned look of traditional oils, it may just gift them a few extra watts.
Muc-Off X-3 Dirty Chain Cleaner Machine
If you know someone who likes to keep their bike in tip-top condition, the Muc-Off X-3 Dirty Chain Cleaner Machine is ideal. It makes bringing a chain back to its former glory a far easier task, and included in this kit is a heavy-duty, deep cleaning machine as well as a bottle of Muc-Off Drivetrain Cleaner. The design of the machine means the grimiest, greasiest chain will be shining again in no time.
Amp Human PR Lotion
Prepping the muscles for a ride can make a huge difference to performance, and if you know someone who loves endurance events, be them cycling, IRONMAN or running, they're going to love this Amp Human PR Lotion.

Zwift 3 Month Membership
Kick start the new year fitness regime or simply have more motivation to train indoors when the weather is bad or you're short of time, with Zwift. A virtual world, designed to make riding on a turbo trainer fun, the immersive experience allows you to push yourself in a wide array of amazing routes and take your indoor cycling to the next level.
Silca Borsa Americano Essentials Case
Made from bicycle inner tubes as well as neoprene found on wetsuits, the attention to detail with this carrying device is second to none. From the Nylon teeth and zinc zipper to the weather-resistant outer construction, this sleek carrying case can hold Apple iPhone 7+ size devices as well as tools with ease.
Aftershokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones
For athletes who like to listen to music while training, the Aftershokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones provide a safe way of doing so. Bone conduction is used, creating an open design that curves around the ear, with the headphone itself sitting just in front of the ear, with the vibrations translated to sound by the inner ear. The result of this technology is that a runner or cyclist can enjoy music but still hear external sounds, a massive improvement over in-ear offerings that completely block traffic and other noises around you.
Sound quality is good, so there's no need to compromise in the search for a safer option. Slim and light, the headphones are comfortable to wear and will remain in place when you're pounding the pavements or trails. Water-resistance adds reliability no matter the conditions and the controls are easy to access.
On Running Cloud Running Shoes
Fresh trainers can rejuvenate performance, and On Running's Cloud Running Shoes incorporate the brand's innovative approach. A unique CloudTec sole using Zero-Gravity foam makes the running platform stable and well-cushioned, without feeling overly heavy, thanks to the use of 16 individual 'clouds'. Another key technology is the Speedboard, so you get both soft landings and explosive take-offs, with no compromises.
100% Speedtrap Sagan Limited Edition Sunglasses
Embrace that Sagan look this season with the 100% Speedtrap Sagan Limited Edition Sunglasses with Blue Topaz Mirror Lens. The former World Champion knows how to look the part on two wheels and it’s no wonder 100% have jumped on board with the Slovak to create these limited edition shades.
Aside from looking the part, these glasses boast UV and impact protection. Adjustable to allow for a comfortable and snug fit, the vented design reduces steaming up and the Hydrophobic and oleophobic treatment repels both oil and water, should you be unfortunate enough to get caught out in a shower.
Garmin Varia Radar RTL515 Rear Light
A rear light that doesn’t just stop at brightening up bike rides, the Garmin Varia Radar RTL515 Rear Light also acts as a warning system to help alert the cyclist of vehicles approaching from up to 140 metres away.
Compact yet offering a significant punch when it comes to output, with a multitude of beam options, the light kicks out up to 65 lumens over the course of 16 hours.
The carefully considered light viewing angle of 220 degrees is sure to catch fellow motorist’s eyes. Pair the light with Garmin Edge bike computers, compatible smartphones, and select Garmin wearable devices to get up to the second radar alerts. Give the gift of light and illuminate the cyclist in your life’s day.
Garmin fenix 6 Pro GPS Watch
Track your workouts and make the most of your indoor and outdoor activities; the Garmin fenix 6 Pro GPS Watch is the latest iteration in the fenix range, a collection of watches designed to enhance everything from runs to cycling and swimming. More features and a longer battery life make this model ideal for those serious about their performances, tracking heart rate, offering Garmin’s market-leading navigation and even Garmin Pay functionality.
For the triathlete and those who generally like to take the plunge, the distance, pace, stroke count/rate, stroke distance, swim efficiency (SWOLF) and calorie tracking really makes this the ideal swim companion.
