Yet again, the Holiday season is upon us, and we're here to help, with 12 gift ideas to suit a range of budgets, all available in our Greenwich store. Especially in the winter months, great gear can really elevate the riding experience, and make a real difference to the cyclist in your family.
HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Ceramic Speed UFO Ultimate Care Bundle
Just as important as buying the right tools, is properly maintaining them. This ultimate bundle has everything you need to keep your drivetrain totally clean, optimized and efficient in all weathers, including the East Coast of the USA in the winter! Show your loved one how much you care, by helping them take care of what they love.
Leh Leather Handlebar Tape
Considering it’s the part of the bike that you touch the most, investing in high quality, American made leader handlebar tape makes a very tangible difference to your riding experience. We love the Acorn Leather Bar Tape from Leh. Their tape is made from 6ft+ seamless leather strips, with smooth finished edges for a timeless look. Durable and easy to clean, this tape will darken slightly and patina over time, adding character to your bike. Perfect for vintage rides!
Lazer G1 Mips Helmet
An all-round winner of a hemet, the Lazer G1 covers all the bases, as well as your head. This ultra-light helmet comes with 22 strategically placed vents to keep your head cool on those strenuous climbs, or can be fitted with Lazer’s Aeroshell to protect your head from rain or cold, or gain that aerodynamic advantage.
Suplest Road Pro Edge+ 2.0 BMC Edition
A collaboration between BMC and Suplest was a match made in heaven. The two iconic Swiss gear manufacturers have a reputation for high quality, well made and reliable products, and these shoes are no exception. Bound to keep your feet warm and dry on those winter road rides, these feature a carbon composite sole, keeping you connected to your bike and confident on any terrain.
CeramicSpeed Coated Bottom Bracket
A crucial part of any bike build, the bottom bracket is what keeps your pedals spinning, and is where the power is transferred from your legs to the wheels. The industry-leader in ceramic bearing bottom brackets, CeramicSpeed’s Coated range has greater longevity and durability than their standard bearings, with each bearing coated in a metallic layer. If there’s any component worth investing in, it’s this.
Pas Normal Studios TKO Long Sleeve Mechanism Jersey + PAS Mechanism Deep Winter Long Bibs
Don’t let the elements dictate your ride! Keep comfortable, and keep your performance up with the Pas Normal TKO Long Sleeve jersey and Deep Winter bibs combo. Perfect for staying warm on those winter rides whilst also staying stylish, there’s nothing like Pas Normal for refined, minimal Scandinavian looks. With updated fit and fabrication for Winter 23/24, the Deep Winter bibs are perfect for temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees, which we see all too often in New York at this time of year.
