It’s that time of year again. The temperatures are dropping, there isn’t enough tea or coffee in the world, the streets are slippery, and you have to get a present for that special person in your life who insists that no matter what the conditions, he/she should still be on their mountain bike.
But where do you start looking for those gifts? The internet, obviously; the source of all knowledge, all cat photos and all outstanding gift ideas for the festive season ahead.
If you’re stuck for ideas for a mountain bike gift his Christmas, look no further. Here’s a selection of mixed-price items to get you started:
1) LifeLine Performance 700 Lumen Front Light, £40
The picture above may look like something out The Blair Witch project, but it was actually the result of a lovely late night – well, 6pm – night ride we had recently with the LifeLine performance light.
The days are getting dark now, which means it’s hard to fit in riding time outside of the weekend. If you want to ensure the mountain biker in your life can still do their thing this winter without splashing too much cash, this £40 option could be the gift for you.
It’s easy to mount, charges with a mini-USB cable, has various lighting modes which are very easy to flick through, and it can be used to both show you where to go and let you be seen on the roads.
2) 100% Accuri Goggles, £31.99
If the person you’re buying for is going to be getting dirty and splashing mud on a regular basis, a pair of goggles could prove a godsend for their visibility while riding.
Accuri Goggles very high quality, come at a very reasonable cost, and most importantly of all, they look badass. The six options above are just a fraction of the colours and designs available online. Check them out here on Chain Reaction Cycles, discounted to £31.99.
