Looking for great gift ideas for your favorite Road Cyclist? JensonUSA has a few ideas, and we helped curate this list of deals to give you options at every price range. And check their site for more great early bird deals during Black Friday, week, too! Here’s our curated pick for the 2018 holiday season that any roadie is sure to enjoy!
Gifts for about $10
- The Syncros Hi Vol 750 Strap Saddle Bag ($10.99) is simple, light, and holds more than you’d think for such a compact bag. Elastic interior loops and Velcro straps with grippy coatings cinch it tight so nothing rattles, slips or slides, either!
- The Garneau Hugo Headband ($11.00) provides just enough warmth for chilly mornings while still letting excess heat vent off the top of your head. Its broad coverage gives you ample wind protection for forehead and ears alike!
- Spare chain quicklinks are one of the best things to keep in your tool roll or saddle bag, but we usually forget about them until it’s too late! Grab a couple while you’re thinking of it, they’ve got ’em on sale for SRAM 12-speed, Shimano 11-speed, plus a universal 11-speed one from KMC.
Gifts under $30
- For real, we roadies love fresh bar tape, so we picked out two different options. The Fizik Superlight bar tape ($14.00) is the weight weenie’s dream. It’s 2mm thick, so you still get a bit of padding, the Microtex material has breathable grip, and it comes in at just 52g for the set! And it comes in lots of colors!
- Looking for something more traditional? Most woven bar tape is super thin and very hard, but the Serfas Woven Bar Tape ($25.99) adds a bit of padding and an adhesive backing, making it comfy and easy to keep in place! More patterns online, too!
- If your cyclist has everything, then they can always use more snacks. The gluten-free Honey Stinger Organic Cinnamon Waffles (16 for $20) are some of our favorites!
- And have you tried Clif’s Nut Butter Filled Bars? (12 for $20) They’re delicious, and the extra fat keeps you fuller, longer, which is great for those all-day rides!
From $30 to $50
- The Lezyne CO2 Caddy ($30) puts everything you need to change, repair and re-inflate a tire into one small pouch that’ll fit in your jersey pocket. It comes with two threaded CO2 cartridges, glueless tire patches to fix major sidewall cuts, and reinforced tire levers.
- The Feedback Rakk ($38.49) storage and display stand keeps your bike at the ready, and stored neatly, perfect for clean garages and apartments where you can’t hang it on a wall.
- Integration is all the rage, but if your bike lacks the hidden compartments, you can make your own additional storage with the Wolf Tooth Components B-RAD system. Grab the Mounting Plate ($21.80) and the Accessory Strap ($28.45) to make use of that no-man’s land under your bottle cage and keep the weight out of your jersey pockets!
- Building up a training bike? Or just need an affordable alloy handlebar that has a more ergonomic top section? The Zipp Service Course 70 Ergo Handlebar ($44.99) is just the ticket.
From $50 to $100
- If you see Oakley’s on sale, it’s usually not legit. But JensonUSA is, and they’ve got the Oakley EV Zero Path ($99.99) cycling sunglasses for half off retail!
- The Smith Route ($49.99) helmet uses Koroyd to mitigate impact forces while still allowing massive ventilation (despite its looks, trust us, it works!), and this one is more than half off!
- The Niterider Sentinel 250 ($54.99) is more than just a tail light, it’s a personal safety device! Make your favorite cyclist (or yourself) more visible to traffic with this ultra bright blinky!
- Road Tubeless is the way to go, and most riders are now running at least a 700×25 width for the improved comfort, grip and efficiency offered by wider tires. Now you can grab one of the best on the market for a deal! The Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ ($63.20) are tubeless-ready and have their ultra-supple 320tpi casing.
- The Brooks Cambium C13 Saddle ($114.99) is the brand’s first full carbon seat, giving you that classic look in a much, much lighter, higher performance package…and for almost half off retail!
- Lezyne’s Super GPS ($149.99) packs every feature they could think of into a unit that connects with and captures everything on your ride.
- If you’re chasing triathlon dreams, though, you may want the Garmin Forerunner 235 ($249.99), which puts most of those same features on your wrist but also captures swim and run data. It even measure your heart rate without a chest strap! Available in three colors.
- The Giro Men’s Chrono Expert Wind Jacket ($200) gets a subtle graphical pattern that matches colors with some of their shoes and gloves, too. It packs into your jersey pocket, blocks cold winds, and has a ton of reflectivity.
- If it’s new bike time, the Wilier Cento1 Air ($2,899.99 to $2,999.99) road bike gets you an aero carbon frame with a Shimano Ultegra group, Shimano wheels, FSA and Ritchey cockpit and Italian flair. And did you know you can customize the build through JensonUSA?
