Gift Guide 2021 - Roadie

Help the roadie you love unwrap great rides.

Roadie — a cyclist who rides a road bike or is fanatical about road biking

If you have a roadie on your list you're in luck — they're fairly predictable. As avid roadies ourselves, we can assure you that your gift will be appreciated if it makes them faster, and/or makes their ride more comfortable.

Our Roadie Gift Guide has carefully selected products that any tarmac devotee would be excited to use.

Assos Chamois Creme - 200ml

Any endurance road rider will tell you, there are good chamois creams, and there are GREAT chamois creams. ASSOS (per usual) has developed a product that falls into the latter category — reducing friction-caused irritation, rehydrating the skin, and minimizing the risk of saddle sores. This gift may be the most appreciated gift on a roadie's wish list.

Fulcrum Racing 4 Wheelset

Have someone on your list who's always tinkering with their bike and looking for upgrades? Shock them with a gift that'll make their next ride feel amazing. Lightweight, durable, and reasonably priced, the Fulcrum Racing 4 wheelset is a perfect upgrade for a disc brake road bike. It's set-up tubeless-ready, so all they'll have to do is install a cassette and disc brakes, mount up some tires, and get out there!

Silca Pista Floor Pump

Silca products are some of the best gifts. They look great out of the package and they work even better. The Pista Floor Pump will turn into your giftee's workshop centerpiece, with its clean red finish, smooth ash wood handle, and ergonomic shape. All replacement parts are available separately, from gauge to washers, making this the pump for a lifetime.

Castelli Undersaddle Mini Saddle Bag

Some roadies have trusty saddle bags for years and years, but after a while they get beat up beyond repair. Before they lose all their tools and snacks after a bump in the road, give them the Castelli Undersaddle Mini Saddle Bag — featuring a sleek profile, water and stain-resistant construction, and reflective accents.

KOO Spectro Sunglasses

Speaking from years of experience, we can assure you that a good pair of sunglasses are essential for roadies. Not only do they keep blinding sun and road debris out of your eyes, but they also are the finishing touch to an awesome kit. The KOO Spectros does all this and more — with anti-fogging technology, uncompromised clarity with a Zeiss Polycarbonate lens, and sleek aesthetics, these Italian-crafted sunglasses will turn into your giftee's favorite riding partner.

Garmin Edge 530

We've heard it time and time again — "I got a Garmin and got faster." With performance monitoring and GPS mapping right on your handlebars, these head units make you spend less time thinking about where you are going and more time focusing on your speed, cadence, and form. Out of the Garmin Edge lineup, the 530 is the best one to give. It features a colored mid-sized screen with almost all the bells and whistles of the bigger units, but at a more affordable price.

Pearl Izumi Pro Tall Sock

Socks are the perfect stocking stuffer or addition to a larger gift. The Pearl Izumi Pro Tall Sock is made with eco-friendly 'Repreve Polyester' body yarn, which means it will still feel great after miles and miles of sweat and not fall down after a few washes. To add a little flair to your giftee's kit, pick out one of the cool graphic designs we offer.

Pirelli P Zero Race TLR SL Road Tire

Have someone on your list who is always looking for that little performance edge? We have the tire for them. The Pirelli P Zero Race tubeless-ready 'Super Light' tires are one of the fastest models we sell. I (copywriter speaking here) used them for the last road racing season and fell in LOVE. Not only are these tires ultralight, but they're also grippy and puncture resistant, so you can put on plenty of fast miles without worry (I haven't had one flat yet!).

Prologo Scratch M5 Saddle

There's a reason why Prologo Scratch saddles have been at the top of the Tour de France GC podium two years in a row — they're really awesome. The Scratch M5 is designed to be comfortable in a variety of riding positions, from climbing to sprinting on flats. Combine its versatility with the saddle's light weight and durability, and you have the perfect upgrade to your giftee's bike.

POC Ventral Air SPIN Road Helmet

One of the best ways to express your gratitude and affection towards a roadie is by giving them a new helmet with the latest protection technology. The POC Ventral Air helmet is not only lightweight and breathable, but it also has SPIN technology — designed to absorb energy and exert less acute stress on your brain during an impact. Suffice it to say, the gift of safety is one of the best gifts!
