Best helmet for kids
Fox Racing Mainframe Helmet
Taking inspiration from Fox’s premium helmets, this hiking helmet features Mips protection and is sized for kids. There is also an adult model for $ 90.
OneUp Components Composite Pedal
These grippy and durable nylon composite pedals are ideal for mountain bikers and commuters. The pins are removable for fine grip and the pedals have sealed bearings for durability. They also come in different sizes and colors.
ODI Vans lockable handles
Locking handles are perfect for mountain bikes and commuter bikes as they stay in place and won’t slip when exposed to water or mud. ODI has a long history of making some of the best grips in the sport. These locks feature the legendary Vans waffle sole pattern. Not only do they feel great in your hands, but they also look great on the bike.
Keep feet warm and comfortable
Wattstyle wool socks
There’s a reason we named Wattstyle socks as our Outfit of the Year; these, quite simply, are great socks at an incredible price! They’re made from wool to help keep your favorite rider’s feet warm as it gets a lot colder on their rides.
An essential bicycle pump
Silca SuperPista Ultimate Hiro Edition floor pump
Every cyclist should have a good pump. And a lucky few should have this one. The SuperPista Ultimate isn’t just a pump, it’s a work of art, as it should be for almost $ 500. Beautifully designed, made in the USA and built to last a lifetime, this is a great gift for the rider in your life.
Best smart trainer
Kickr Snap Smart Power Trainer
The Kickr Snap is an easy-to-use smart trainer perfect for the rider looking to train indoors or to start riding and running on virtual platforms like Zwift.
Stay warm while cycling
Limited Edition Sinergia 2 Jersey
This long-sleeved thermal jersey is ideal for winter, spring and fall. While this one is aimed at women, there’s a version for men as well – both have full-length zippers, making it easy to control ventilation so you don’t overheat during more intense efforts.
The solution to irritations
Chamois Butter Cream
Nothing we found that minimizes saddle irritation like Chamois Butt’r. Among four different âflavorsâ, including a version for women, we love the refreshing feel of Euro Style, with menthol and witch hazel. All stay in place on longer hikes, while washing easily.
Best all-purpose kit
Finish Line Pro Care Bucket Kit
All the essentials for washing a bike are in this handy maintenance bucket kit from Finish Line. You get brushes for cleaning and detailing, bike cleaner, degreaser, and wet and dry lubricants, everything you need to keep your bike clean and crack-free.
Best bicycle bell
Spurcycle compact bell
The Spurcycle Battle Bell is the most beautiful bell we have used. It’s slim, sleek, and won’t look out of place on any bike. Best of all: it’s loud!
Keep cyclists hydrated
Bivo One water bottle
Stainless steel water bottles are designed to last a long time and prevent the growth of mold and bacteria, making them a good choice for cyclists. Of the few options, this one impresses us the most. It is pleasant to use and drink.
Most Essential Cycling Hoodie
Cobra 3.0 merino wool hoodie
This wool hoodie is good to wear on or off the bike. It dries quickly, does not stink and is a great garment for every season. Also, since it is a zipper, it can easily be layered on top of other clothing.
Protect the eyes from the sun
Ombraz Dolomite Sunglasses
These sunglasses are perfect for that person in your life who always loses track of their sunglasses. Instead of standard arms, they use secure ropes to keep them from pulling away from your body. And the grippy nose keeps them in place, even on a sweaty ride.
Keep track of tire pressure
Xiaomi portable electric air compressor
With tubeless tires, hookless rims and new rolling resistance research, tire pressure has never been more important. The Xiaomi Mijia is an iPod-like portable digital tire inflator that makes pre-race or race tire pressure adjustment easy and precise, allowing you to get the most out of your tires.
Side (and ride) comfortably
Fizik Argo Tempo R3 saddle
Our team fell in love with this distinctive looking saddle when testing the Ventum NS1 bike. With a short nose (but not so short that you can’t change positions), a generous cutout, and a wide platform on the sit bones for support, it’s ideal for road or gravel riding.
Stay safe during night walks
Bontrager Flare RT Rear Bike Light
The super bright Flare RT is the smallest and smartest bicycle tail light in the game. With multiple flash and always-on modes, up to 15 hours of battery life and ANT + connectivity for the remote, you can leave it on your bike and feel safe and seen on every ride.
Essential bell for mountain bikers
Timber Quick Release Mountain Bike Bell
If you are riding mixed-use mountain bike trails, the Timber Bell should be on your bike. The constant bell may take a while to get used to, but it’s worth it to alert other trail users to your presence (and it’s easy to silence when the coast is clear with an easy-to-slide lever. ).
Excellent grips for mountain bikes
Ergon GE1 Evo grips
The Ergon GE1 EVO is a favorite of our testers and is suitable for almost any style of mountain bike. With a construction that absorbs shock and takes the strain off the arms on descents, it conforms perfectly to the shape of your hand and has a grip pattern that inspires confidence even on the most sweaty days.
Best helmet for adult cyclists
POC Omne Air Spin Helmet
With extended ventilation, a polycarbonate shell with a variable density EPS foam liner and POC’s SPIN rotary energy management technology, this helmet looks, feels and works like many covers double the price.
Well-fitting shoes for long journeys
Ride Concepts Hellion Elite Shoes
Right now, the Hellion Elite sits atop the pyramid of trail / all mountain flat pedal shoes, not for one thing, but because it does everything right. Fit, comfort, grip, stiffness, feel, weight and look: this shoe perfectly balances all of these elements. The result is an almost perfect shoe.
