It’s that time of year when our quasi Editor’s Choice roundups serve as gift guides for the deserving cyclist in your life. This year’s collection starts off with Tyler’s wish list, a bundle of the best things he’s tried this year, lending a solid recommendation for sticking any of them under the tree.

From there, we move on to a huge array of reviews, from two killer commuter pants from Mountain Khakis and Thunderbolt Sportswear (plus accessories to go with the outfits), Kuat’s NV 2.0 hitch rack, Foundry’s Flyover cyclocross bike and much more. We also gave DT Swiss’ all-new aero carbon road wheels a deep dive, covering all the tech on these wider, more stable and long riding options.

After that, there’s the usual assortment of interesting new goods hitting the market. From a laser cut chain lube (yes, you read that right) to an analog smart watch that doubles as a cycling computer, it was a solid week of cycling goodies. See the full headline list below, each linking to their story in a new tab…
