Mad Alchemy Madness Hot Warming Embrocation
For when the mercury really dips but you want to forgo the leg and knee warmers that’ll instantly become soggy and heavy right after the gun goes off at a muddy ‘cross race, comes Mad Alchemy’s Madness Hot Warming Embrocation. This is the warmest formula from the brand and it’s recommended for temps 40-degrees Farahenhite and below and has a slow burn that’ll last for the duration of your ride. Mad Alchemy also suggests trying the mellow or medium embro first before diving all in the madness if you’re an embro newbie. Not just for the legs, a small amount on the neck and lower back can provide some additional warmth and much-needed muscle relief on hard rides.
Mad Alchemy uses natural, preservative-free ingredients like grapeseed and soybean oil and West African shea butter for skin protection and an unrivaled aroma. It’s also petroleum-free, doesn’t test on animals and it’s almost vegan free, minus the beeswax.

CHOMPMAS WOOL SOCKS

Blackburn Pro Plugger Tire Repair Tool –
What’s better than one plug? Two plugs. And why not add a P/V core tool since you’ll have to re-tubeless-ify an ailing tire anyway? The Pro Plugger expands on the success of the original plugger – known for its double-wrapped plugs to seal real-world marring – and adds CNC alloy construction, an even more compact and convenient design, and still packs 5 refills into its pared-down and minimalist physique.

Lezyne Digital Pressure Drive Pump
Keep the Digital Pressure Drive Pump handy as a lightweight inflation companion on long rides where pinch flats and goat heads are common, as well as road trips to your favorite riding destinations. This compact hand pump easily fits in your back jersey pocket or hydration pack, so you can inflate tires on long road rides and extended trail missions, especially in remote areas where help is a long way off in case of a flat.
Perhaps most impressive, the highly accurate digital gauge comes in handy for fine-tuning tire pressures to your exact specifications, depending on the scenario and terrain you’re about to embark upon with your road and mountain bikes. It’s made of CNC-machined aluminum and Composite Matrix for an ideal blend of durability, precise inflation over time, and lightweight carrying. The Flip-Thread Chuck inflates both Presta and Schrader valves (also works with rarely seen Dunlop valves), complete with an Air Bleed System (ABS) to bleed excess air trapped inside the hose for easier valve removal.

Muc-Off Luxury Chamois Cream
There’s nothing about avoiding chaffing and saddle sores that seems luxurious, but Muc-Off aims to change your point of view on that. The Luxury Chamois Cream makes the process less of a chore and more enjoyable while maintaining the friction-reducing performance you need from your cream. Natural ingredients (including aloe vera, witch hazel, shea butter, and sunflower oil) provide a mild cooling sensation that reduces irritation and keeps you comfortable throughout your ride.
