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.
KMC X11-Speed Aurora Oil Slick Chain
Have someone on your list who's always upgrading their bike with fancy bits? Hit 'em with the KMC X11-Speed Aurora Oil Slick Chain. A little added bling to the drivetrain will be sure to have heads spinning on the group ride and they'll be stoked.
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.
Zipp 303 S Tubeless Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset
The single-most significant upgrade to any road bike is a good set of wheels—and Zipp knows a thing or two about making wheels. Synonymous with speed, Zipp's flagship road wheel, the 303 S, is optimized for aerodynamics on the road with the versatility to accommodate gravel and cyclocross tire widths. Set your road cyclist apart from the pack with the best value road wheelset on the market!
Oakley Sutro Ti 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 a classy kit. The Sutro Ti Sunglasses feature Oakley's patented Prizm lenses housed in an ultra-lightweight titanium construction.
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.
