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.
MAAP X Sigma Sports Day Vis Cycling Cap
A cycling cap may be an, on the surface, simple item but it always goes down well as a gift. MAAP are cycle clothing experts and worked with Sigma Sports to bring their eye-catching Aussie design outlook to the humble cap. The result? The MAAP X Sigma Sports Day Vis Cycling Cap was born. Made entirely from cotton, this elasticated, one size fits all piece of kit is the ideal addition to any cyclist’s wardrobe; keeping the sun’s rays at bay as well as the rain from their eyes. We love it and think it is the perfect stocking filler or could be paired with a set of gloves or socks to be a fantastic birthday present.
Vel RL Carbon Bottle Cage
Give that special finishing touch to the cyclist in your life’s pride and joy and enhance their machine with a carbon bottle cage. Lightweight, stylish and durable, the Vel RL Carbon Bottle Cage is available in a wide range of colours, to complement a whole heap of frame colourways and offers a secure hold of 500 as well as 700ml bottles.
Universal Colours Mono Merino Socks
As top of the range, high-quality materials go, merino really is a winner. The team at Universal Colours recognise this and have made their rather snazzy Mono Merino Socks out of this fast-wicking, highly breathable and warm material. The Mono Merino Socks feature a high cuff and have added support on the arch and upper foot to make these comfortable and supportive, however long the ride. A premium gift, without that premium price tag and one the giftee can use day in day out both on and off the bike, this is a sock drawer essential.
Altura Nightvision Windproof Gloves
A present that is sure to brighten anyone’s day, Altura’s Nightvision Windproof Gloves are dialled in for commuting, with a selection of carefully placed reflective details added, allowing fellow road users to take notice, day or night. Silicone print on the palm of the cycling gloves enhances grip on the handlebar and the touchscreen compatible finger design allows easy use when it comes to operating bike computers and mobile devices.
Patagonia P-6 Logo Responsibili-Tee
Looking for a well made, sustainably designed off bike garment? Look no further than the Patagonia P-6 Logo Responsibili-Tee. Constructed from 0.26 pounds of scrap fabric and 4.8 discarded bottles, this T-shirt uses 96% less water and creates 45% less CO2 than a traditional one. Impressive numbers, bolstered by classic Patagonia styling and a casual and comfortable cut, it is most definitely one tee for the wishlist!
Lonely Planet Epic Bike Rides of the World Book
When it comes to giving a present that will be cherished and picked up again and again a book can really hit the mark. Lonely Planet’s Epic Bike Rides of the World Book is designed to captivate and inspire the reader, with 200 of the best places to ride a bike thoughtfully outlined in a 328-page publication. Organised by continent and spanning everywhere from France to Mongolia this beautifully illustrated hardback would be a fine addition to any coffee table and any aspiring or seasoned traveller.
Vel MTB/Gravel Storage Can and HV-Flow Mini Pump Starter Kit
Trail ready? Your lucky gift recipient will be with the Vel MTB/Gravel Storage Can and HV-Flow Mini Pump Starter Kit. Everything you need to get those quick repairs made, this kit features an array of tools, including a multitool and puncture repair essentials. This is all securely bundled into a neat waterproof storage can, which can slot securely into a bottle cage. Okay, it might not be the sexiest of gifts but it is one to be thankful for when the going gets tough out on the bike.
OAKLEY FLIGHT JACKET SUNGLASSES WITH PRIZM ROAD LENS
Market leaders when it comes to technology, iconic styling and fit, the Oakley Flight Jacket Sunglasses with Prizm Road Lens are hot property. We love the Prizm™ lens technology, which enhances your path ahead as well as the No-slip Unobtainium® nosepads and earsocks which are designed to keep the sunglasses in place, either when being worn or stashed in the vents of a helmet.
Assos Assosoires RS Rain Booties
There is nothing worse than a gift that ends up forgotten, stuffed down the back of a cupboard. Let’s just say, with the often temperamental weather we are presented with, we are pretty confident that this is not one of those gifts! The Assos Assosoires RS Rain Booties deliver on many fronts when it comes to adding that much-needed extra layer of protection out on the bike. Made from a 2L waterproof Water-Shield fabric, which is optimised with the use of fully taped seams, these booties add aero cred, keep feet dry, shoes clean and come with sportGrip soles for increased grip when walking. What’s not to love?
Shimano RC7 SPD-SL Road Shoes
Does the cyclist in your life need to up their cycling shoe game? Is their current pair of kicks looking a little on the tired side? Ensure they are pedaling in style with Shimano’s RC7 SPD-SL Road Shoes. Not just a looker, these shoes are comfort and performance-focused, with Boa L6 dials and an adjustable Powerzone wire guide for a precise, dialled-in fit. A super stiff sole and sub 500 gram (per shoe) weight make these ultra desirable options for those looking to get the most out of their road or triathlon bikes.
POC Omne Air Spin Helmet
Take your gifting up a gear with the POC Omne Air SPIN Helmet. Swedish designed with safety and style in mind, this svelte number packs quite the punch with its unique oblique impact protection system, SPIN and Optimised-density EPS liner added to keep the wearer safe in the case of a crash. A slim profile and well ventilated shell makes this cycling helmet a firm favourite here at Sigma Sports.
Hammerhead Karoo 2 GPS Cycling Computer
Assist the cyclist in your life when it comes to tracking their training, open up opportunities when it comes to exploring further afield and help with planning new adventures with the Hammerhead Karoo 2 GPS Cycling Computer. Is your giftee a tech junkie? Whether they love their electronic devices or simply appreciate intuitive functionality when it comes to their cycling computers all will appreciate Hammerhead’s easy-to-use and super slick interface. Choose from 23 data page layouts and six map options and pair it with a power meter and third-party app to get all the data they could possibly need.
Oakley Kato X Sunglasses with Prizm Black Lens
Futuristic with a flash of flare, the Oakley Kato X Sunglasses come equipped with a Prizm Black Lens to provide that svelte look. Mirroring the contours of the face, these sunglasses are for those looking to make a statement. HDO (High Definition Optics) and a lightweight O Matter™ arm material keeps the wearer’s vision crystal clear and the glasses sitting unobtrusively on the head.
Garmin Vector 3 Double Sided Power Meter Pedals
Taking the power meter world by storm the Garmin Vector 3 Double Sided Power Meter Pedals are an excellent choice for those serious about their performance. Easy to take on and off a range of bikes and working not just with Garmin cycling computers, but also all ANT+ and Bluetooth devices, these pedals offer +/-1.0% accuracy to ensure no watt is lost. A 316-gram weight and 120-hour battery life means there is a minimal weight penalty and the user can ride confidently knowing the pedals will monitor your power with every pedal revolution.
Exposure Lights Six Pack Mk11 Front Light
The pinnacle when it comes to bike lights and a pretty impressive gift to boot. Exposure Lights' Six Pack Mk11 Front Light kicks out up to 5000 lumens, has Reflex technology that uses 3D digital accelerometers to monitor the bike’s motion and in turn matches the output to the terrain, and features a Smart Port. This Smart Port allows the Six Pack’s 15,500 mAh battery to also be used as a power source for recharging other devices. The result is a light that is especially handy for bikepacking trips.
