Christmas Gift Ideas

CyclePassion 2009 Calendar

The latest release of the CyclePassion calendar threatens to get many hot under the collar with a collection of some of the hottest female professional cyclists in the world. This spiral-bound large format (40cm x 68cm) calendar is a must have for any serious cyclist. An understanding partner may be required.

KMC X10 SL chain

Ok, so a chain may not appear the most exciting present idea in the world, but KMC chains aren’t any old chains, but among the lightest available.

Gore RideOn cables

Treat your bike to some Gore sealed cables, for smoother and quicker shifting and braking that won’t fall foul of water and grit through the winter. Choose from Low Friction and Sealed Low Friction.

SKS Rennkompressor

The SKS Rennkompressor is something of an iconic item, having been put to use inflating tyres for the past 40 years. Still as good today as when it was first introduced

SLR Gel Flow Team Edition saddle

Selle Italia make some of the best saddles in the world, and the SLR is one of its most popular models. The Gel Flow has 30% carbon composite shell, high abrasion resistant Lorica upper and silicone gel inserts surrounding the cut-away channel. Vanox tubes bring the weight to 225g.

Rouleur Annual 2008

The annual is a collection of work from nine of Rouleur’s main photographers, who have been sent to the four corners of the cycling calendar and tasked with bringing back the best possible photographs. A task, it seems, they’ve achieved with great aplomb.

Muc Off Pit Kit

A venerable favourite, Muc-Off’s Pit Kit has all the brushes, cleaners, sponge and lube – and a handy sized bucket to keep everything in – you’ll need to keep your bike shiny clean this winter.

Giro Saros

Giro’s new Saros (replacing the Pneumo) is packed with many of the features you’ll find on the company’s high-end lids, including vents designed in a wind tunnel and the latest RocLoc 4 retention system. Available in a choice selection of colours.

Michelin Pro3 tyres

The French firms latest 200g race tyre, the Pro3 features an improved compound that claims reduced rolling resistance while offering increased levels of cornering grip for a tyre you can count on in all conditions. Available in range of colours and 23mm and 25mm widths.

Rapha Merino socks

A little bit of luxury for your feet. Rapha’s socks are made from Merino wool, available in black or white, are left and right foot specific, have hand-locked seams at the toes and are very, very warm.

Knog Coloured Frog lights

Knog’s fun and funky Coloured Frog lights are sure to brighten up your winter with a choice of 12 colours and a bright LED to ensure you’re highly visible. The flexible silicon body cleverly wraps around any size handlebar or seatpost and it’s water resistant too. And it only weighs a measly 13g.

Assos Thermax overshoes

Keep your footsies warm and you won’t have any problems riding through the worst of the winter. These Assos Thermax overshoes employ the company’s AirBlock wind resistant material around the front of the shoe to great effect, keeping your toes lovely and warm.

Specialized Arc II glasses

The original non-folding Arc weighed a measly 16g, and offered excellent coverage and comfort. The Arc II brings updates including improved coverage and contact points, with a sweat pad along the top and de-misting ports on the still excellent Adaptalite lens.

Lezyne Carbon 9 Multi-tool

Easily the most beautifully designed tools you can possibly lay your greasy mitts on. The Lezyne Carbon 9 Multi-tool features CNC’ed stainless steel tools (chain breaker, 2mm L-shape hex, 3,4,5,6, and 8mm standard hex, Philips screw driver and 25t Torx) with ergonomic carbon fibre side plates for a bit of dazzle.

Park Tool mug

Finally, here’s something to drink your favourite hot tipple from. Park Tool’s logo-ed mug is a must have for the cyclist who already has all the kit.
