An athlete’s bike is never finished. We’re always looking for that next little enhancement. And receiving it from a loved one makes it all the better!
K-Edge Pro Road Braze-on Chain Catcher – $29.99
Dropping a chain is no laughing matter. And if you know someone riding without a chain catcher (and you are in the gift giving spirit), a chain catcher is the present to give. K-Edge makes the best chain catcher we have found to date, and the Pro Road improves on the original with easier installation, separate and lower attachment /adjustment bolt for a stronger design, and a unique curved ramp profile that enables quicker chain engagement with the chain ring while eliminating dropped chains. Give your favorite cyclist piece of mind with the K-Edge Pro Road Braze-on Chain Catcher.
TriRig Ergo Cups – $74.99
TriRig’s Ergo Cups are said to be one of the most comfortable options around. As compared to the standard pads on the TriRig Alpha, these cups trade a little weight in exchange for much more surface area, more arm wrap, a super grippy textured neoprene pad, and ultimately a more comfortable and stable ride. Know someone spending hour after hour riding aero? This could be just what they’ve been hoping for.
XLAB Versa 500 – $149.99
We rode all season with a Versa 500 and couldn’t have been happier. The Versa starts with their new telescoping Garmin-specific computer mount. The telescoping mount allows you to easily adjust your computer to be in your perfect position in front of the bottle. The Versa also features an updated bottle with XLAB’s new Dolphin Breather Valve technology to keep liquids inside.
TriRig Omega X – $184.99
The Omega X (and its predecessor, the Omega) have been in almost every AeroGeeks Holiday Gift Guide, and for good reason. With near universal mounting options, an aero design, and strong consistent stopping power, the OmegaX is an AeroGeeks favorite. For those looking to give their favorite mistress (hopefully you all know we mean “bike” here) an upgrade this holiday season, an Omega X can be the perfect gift.
Ceramic Speed OSPW System – $459
Look on almost every pro bike and an oversized pulley system has become standard fair. No one wants to give up watts, especially if you are aiming for the podium. The Ceramic Speed Oversized Pulley Wheel system features a set of 17-tooth aluminum Pulley Wheels, available in red, black, or limited edition colors, and in a specially designed polyamide (PA) and carbon cage. Compatibility covers Shimano Ultegra/Dura Ace (7800/7900/7970/9000/9070) 10s and 11s, electronic and mechanical group sets, SRAM eTap or mechanical SRAM Force, Rival and APEX groupsets, and just this week they announced Campagnolo support.
Flo Disc – $649
Know someone working their way up the podium that rides either sans disc, or with a disc cover? Give them a disc and you’re certain to make their entire holiday season. And the Flo Disc is not only a fantastic wheel, but one at a great price as well. Put a smile on their face without putting a frown on your bank account.
Zipp 858 NSW – $4,400
Looking to give someone special one of the best aero weapons money can afford? Look no further than Zipp’s latest 858 wheel set. The new shape is said to be physics-defying in cross winds. The new Cognition hubsets are simply magic, and Zipp’s Showstopper braking surface slows you down in a hurry. Want to really show someone you care? A set of 858s would certainly do the trick.
