1.TUBOLITO S-TUBO MTB 29″ X 1.8-2.5″ TUBE

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

The world of off-road riding has gone tubeless, but that doesn’t meant tubes are obsolete. These, made from a thermoplastic elastomer called TPU, are far lighter than a standard tube and pack down to less than half the space. Saddle bag space is always a hot commodity, and these let you use either a smaller and lighter pack or bring more spares in the same bag that previously held only one tube. One of our weight weenie editors loves them because they trim roughly 100 grams from the saddle bag he carries on race day. Besides the 29-inch tube here, Tubolito also makes options for 27.5-inch wheels, as well as road and gravel tubes.

2.WAHOO TICKR HEART RATE MONITOR

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

This chest strap features both ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity and has multi-point connectivity, simultaneously pairing with three devices if you wish. It can also store up to 16 hours of data for future download and analysis, should you go for a ride without your computer. And it has a treadmill mode for tracking speed and distance while you’re running in place, plus it’s compatible with dozens of third-party apps. We have no complaints with the soft, adjustable strap and we love the slim profile.

3.MUC OFF TUBELESS PRESTA VALVES

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

If the cyclist in your life grew up in the 1990s, then anodized aluminum tubeless valve stems are the perfect stocking stuffer. Easy to install with a 4mm Allen wrench, these come with three different rubber stoppers to fit with nearly all rim profiles, as well as a machined aluminum valve-core removal tool. Best of all, the stems are available in ten colors, so you’re sure to find the right one to spice up those hoops.

5.PARK TOOL I-BEAM TOOL

This incredibly useful multitool is ideal for cyclists who prefer to pack light. The tiny contraption includes hex wrenches of sizes 3-6mm and an 8mm wrench, a flathead screw driver, a T-25 Torx wrench, a tire lever, two spoke wrenches, and a chain tool.

6.THE ROAD TO SAN DONATO: FATHERS, SONS, AND CYCLING ACROSS ITALY

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

The Road to San Donato started as an article in the pages of our print magazine, and was later published on our website here. This adventure memoir tells the story of a 425-mile cycling adventure the author and his 64-year-old father embarked on through Italy to reconnect with their family’s history.

7.TOPEAK RATCHET ROCKET LITE DX TOOL

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

Bike-minded multitools aren’t the easiest to manipulate, so try this micro ratchet set for faster repairs and adjustments. It comes with hex wrenches of 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8mm widths, plus T10 and T25 Torx wrenches, a Phillips screwdriver, and two tire levers.

8.HIPLOK SPIN LOCK

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

The Hiplok Spin is a wearable chain lock that’s more comfortable to wear while riding than most. It also fits smaller waists, down to 26 inches, than many similar models and bigger waists up to 44 inches. Its 6mm hardened-steel chain and hardened shackle are narrower than heavier chains, but it’s hefty enough to scare off casual plunderers. An adjustable hook-and-loop closure makes for easy donning without having to unlock it.

9.UNTAPPED MAPLE SYRUP ATHLETIC FUEL

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

A quick hit of maple syrup is a great way to fuel a ride, for full-time racers, casual enthusiasts, and everyone in between. These single-serve packets are easy to open while riding, and the contents are delicious both on their own or when used to spice up a cup of bland gas station coffee.

10.STAN’S NOTUBES DART TOOL

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

Tire plugs are nothing new, but the tech in Stan’s Dart is a leap forward. This cylindrical tool is preloaded with a barbed plastic plug that can be quickly jammed into a tire puncture. The barbs then hold the plug in place as you remove the insertion tool, and the flexible material conforms to the contours of the tire to create an instant seal. Once you’re back up and riding, any excess plastic that pokes out will gradually wear away. No more bacon strips hanging out that you need to trim post-ride or—if you’re on a road bike—annoying bumps with every rotation of the wheel.

11.VIBRELLI UNIVERSAL BIKE PHONE MOUNT

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

Keeping a phone high and dry with this handy bike mount is better than stuffing it into a sweaty jersey pocket. The flexible design allows the screen to rotate and adjust to any angle, while the adjustable clamps and strong silicone bands hold phones of all sizes in place.

12.ASCHER USB RECHARGEABLE BIKE LIGHT SET

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

These aren’t as small and sleek as some swankier light sets, but they are so much cheaper. The extra size and less refined shape are reasonable trade-offs. Choose between two steady and two flash modes, and confidently get 2.5 to 10 hours of runtime. We consistently got more than 10 hours of run time and love these lights because we can safely do multiple rides on a single charge. Even better, these batteries don’t deteriorate quickly—we’ve been using our set for more than a year. Last but not least, the micro USB charging port has a rubber cover, so there’s no need to fret if you get caught in the rain.

13.DELTA CYCLE LEONARDO DA VINCI SINGLE BIKE STORAGE RACK

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

While there are plenty of ways to store a bike, a single wall-mounted hook, like this one from Delta Cycle, is one of the simplest and most space-efficient options.

14.BUFF ORIGINAL MULTIFUNCTIONAL HEADWEAR

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

If they don’t already have a Buff in their closet to wear as a scarf, headband, or helmet liner, now is an excellent time to get one—it also functions as a face covering. The stretchy polyester microfiber is easy to pull up over your mouth and nose when you need to, and it wicks moisture to keep them dry.

16.SKRATCH LABS SPORT HYDRATION DRINK MIX

Check Price on Amazon

FEATURES

What started as a homemade solution to a lower-sugar, all-natural sports drink is now a big name brand. Scratch Labs offers a palatable solution to hydration, and with flavors like passion fruit and match, there are options to prevent taste bud fatigue. Not only that, their formula is designed to replace exactly what’s lost with heavy sweating.

FUTURE THOUGHT

The cycle  gift for cyclist  is indeed my most favourite gift. I have used it for multifarious reasons and it has come to my rescue in all the situations. I still ride it whenever I go out and also wash it every day. Though it doesn’t look as new as it did then, it runs really fast even today.
