Bicycle Sport Staff Gift Picks
Shopping for the cyclist on your gift list (even if it’s you!) doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, we’re going to make it downright easy for you this Christmas with the Bicycle Sport Staff Gift Picks. Every week, we’ll tip you to some great gift ideas, courtesy of the guys who spend all day dreaming of great ways to put it to use. First up on the list are Josh Hayden’s picks!
Josh digs this tail light because it’s one of the brightest rear lights you can get without a prescription. Lightweight, rechargeable, and adjustable, too. Quick and easy to mount in the bike, the Flare R Tail Light looks great, and is ideal for city riding. With 65 lumens and 270 degrees of visibility you’ll be even easier to see – night or day.
This thing doesn’t just look cool, it IS cool. The Crank Brothers M5 Multi Tool has everything you’d need for the most basic of road – or trailside repair: 4, 5, and 6mm hex wrenches, plus a philips head screwdriver. Small enough to fit in most any seat bag. Paired with a flat kit and tire levers, you’re unstoppable!
When the temps get to 40F and below, Josh turns to the Bontrager Velocis Soft Shell Glove. He’s had a pair for some time now and says they’ve got the durability to last the season and beyond. Water and wind resistant, with a Thinsulate liner to keep in the warmth, and a smidgen of pad in the palm, these gloves are ready to ride outside.
