And in cycling, sometimes it’s the light things.” CycleOp’s has paired titanium shafts to alloy levers and created these max strength, performance, and minimal weight skewers. These extremely light and incredible strong skwers weigh in at just 48 grams for the pair. The cyclist your buying these for, won’t even notice them on their bike.

Campagnolo Corkscrew

For the ultimate connoisseur of bicycling, we present the Campagnolo Corkscrew. Invented by Tullio Campagnolo, this fine piece of engineering was first presented back in 1966. The patented self-centring telescopic bell and hardened steel wide sharp screw consistently ensure a perfect grip on the cork and its removal without raising sediments and without shaking the bottle. A fine piece of hardware from the man who also invented the bicycle quick release and cable operated parallelogram derailleur. If well taken care of, this Corkscrew has been known to last over 30 years. It’s on the pricey side, but for the cyclist who has everything, this is the crème de la crème of gifts.
