10 Christmas Mountain Biking Gifts

Moutain biking gifts start with thought

Buying mtb / mountain biking gifts can be tricky especially when you’re not a rider yourself because its all rather specific to a person’s riding style and personal taste. So with that in mind its important to check out their bike and gear to get an idea of what looks a little ragged. So here are our top 10 Christmas Mountain Biking Gifts

Fiveten Freerider Contact shoes

RRP: £100 | $155

Fiveten Freerider Contact shoes

Our riding shoes take a hammering and are key to us keeping our feet on the pedals which is why a new set are always well received. The Fiveten Contact is a rider favourite. Before you buy, double check that your other half doesn’t use clipless, i.e. clip in pedals, if he does you want to go for the Maltese Falcon version.

Ergon GE1 Grips

RRP: £28 | $30

Ergon GE1 Grips

Grips are another one of those components which get worn out in time. The GE1 Grips from Ergon are super comfortable, look good and are at a pretty good price. Would suggest checking out the lucky recipient’s bike and getting a colour to suit.

Urge endur-O-matic 2

So this one is a bit riskier but will blow their mind if you pull it off.

It will be released in limited quantities so if you get your hands on one, you’ll be worshiped. Keep your eyes peeled

GoPro Hero 4 Session or Black

RRP: £159 – £409 | $200 – $100

GoPro Hero 4 Session or Black

GoPro are the leaders in action sports cameras. Capturing some of your favourite rides is great fun to do and share. Dont be tempted to go for the entry level versions as these dont offer high enough resolution to frame rate you would need for fast paced video capture. You want the session or Black.

RRP: £9 | $12

Rapidracer Enduro mud gaurd

Great little gift which will be appreciated. It straps to your from forks and keeps the mud from flying into your face or up your backside. You should be able to do a quick google search to find the best deal.

Chain Reaction Cycles voucher

RRP: £1 + | $1 +

Chain reaction voucher

The reality is that sometimes you just dont know enough about the person you’re buying for to be able to choose the right gift and thats fine. But dont give up and buy them socks or soap on a rope. Instead buy them a voucher for chainreactioncycles.com. Spend as much or as little as you want/can and they will appreciate the generous thought. Its what I ask for if I’m honest.
