UNDER $10

jensonusa gift guide for mountain bikers 2017

  • Mountain bikes get dirty. Clean bikes are faster, it’s scientifically proven. Use Orange Seal’s Orange Shine Bike Cleaner to get clean and go fast. ($3.59)
  • When it takes a little more than a spray wash, the Park Tool GSC-1 Gear Clean Brush gets in there and scrapes out the gunk from between your chain links and cassette cogs. ($4.46)
  • Almost all of us have gone tubeless. And almost all of us are smart enough to carry a spare tube as a backup. Here’s a chance to grab a couple good ones on the cheap. ($3.99)

$10 to $25

  • And since we’ve all gone tubeless, we need the occasional top off. Stan’s NoTubes’ sealant is the standard by which others are measured. ($17.00 for 16oz, other sizes available)
  • The Dakine Exodus Glove offers a stretchy, breathable upper with a Clarion palm that uses three thin padded sections to provide comfort without sacrificing control. ($19.99)
  • If your favorite mountain biker handles their own maintenance, Rockshox Suspension Oil makes rebuilds easier by giving their forks exactly what they need to stay smooth. ($15.99)
  • Speaking of smooth, if trail access issues in your area could use a little lube, the Timber Bell mountain bike bell lets other users know you’re coming in a friendly manner. ($21.99)

$25 to $50

  • It’s not often we have to replace our rotors, but when we do, going with OEM Shimano rotors for your Shimano calipers ensures top notch performance. ($31.99)
  • Camelbak’s come out with plenty of minimalist packs since the Lobo, but we’re still a fan of this lightweight, dual storage compartment design. Get these closeouts while you still can! ($44.99)
  • Big, squishy and secure. The ODI Rogue Lock-on grips offer big rubber to damp vibrations and keep your hands planted on the bar. ($21.49)

$50 to $100

  • The Fox Metah Helmet offer deep rear protection, an oversized visor and is more than half off. Available in three colors. ($69.99)
  • At 780mm wide and 330g, the Chromag Fubars OSX handlebar is a great replacement for the cheap stock bar on your trail or enduro mountain bike. And it’s half off. ($49.99)
  • If something’s likely to break, the rear derailleur is near the top of the list. Upgrade to an XT M8000 for a great price. ($67.99)
  • There are a few products that are mountain bike legend, and the Maxxis Minion II DHR mountain bike tires are among them. Time to make your 29er a little more aggressive. ($49.60)

OVER $100

  • Industry Nine is another legend, and anytime you can get their stuff on sale, it’s hard to pass up. Their Grade 27.5 wheelset builds wide 28.5mm internal alloy rims on I9’s bulletproof hubs for a 1880g trail wheelset. ($799.99)
  • Got an older wheelset but need to upgrade your fork first? The Fox 32 Float Performance 27.5 fork is a lightweight but capable fork that’s fully modern but still available with 9mm QR dropouts. ($269.99)
  • If your mountain biker is trying to set a Strava record on the trail, the Garmin Edge 520 bundle with HR strap will help them get in shape and track their times. ($349.99)
  • Night rides add a whole new element to mountain biking, and lights have never been bright or cheaper. Light & Motion makes some of the best, and this 1000 lumen headlight will mount to your bar or your helmet and easily guide you between the trees…then through the streets to get back home. ($149.99)
