Does the cyclist in your life sport freshly shorn legs on a regular basis? Do their tanlines qualify as epic? If so, these are definitely the gifts you're looking for.

Vittoria Corsa G+ Open Clincher

Vittoria Corsa G+ Open Clincher ($76)

With the amount of "technology" in modern product lines, it is all-too-easy to claim "do-it-all" performance , but we're happy to announce that Vittoria's Corsa G+ Open Clincher Tire actually delivers on their promise.

Lezyne CNC Travel Floor Drive

Lezyne CNC Travel Floor Drive ($79)

Large amounts of travel are involved with racing, no matter what. Being stuck with a pump that doesn't work, a full-sized floor pump (read "won't fit in your luggage"), or simply without one at all means that you won't be racing. Don't go through all the effort to race, only to be let down by a basic equipment failure.

Castelli Diverso Sock

Castelli Diverso Sock ($20)

This merino wool blend sock keeps comfort high and odor low. Merino is also versatile over a wide range of temperatures, so this sock will serve you through fall and summer equally well. Finally, a twelve centimeter cuff and bold styling makes it a great part of your on-the-bike ensemble or your around-town kit.

CAPO Gelato Special Edition Bib Short

CAPO Gelato Special Edition Bib Short ($220)

Made in the USA, CAPO is known for their well-fitted apparel and minimalist, European styling. This special edition release not only offers compression, breathability, and maximum comfort in the sit pad, but it's incredibly good looking and will perfectly suit the Gelato Jersey.

Hammer Nutrition Tissue Rejuvenation

Hammer Nutrition Tissue Rejuvenation ($30)

Hammer Tissue Rejuvenator is claimed to aid in recovery as well as injury prevention. Delivering raw materials to your muscles promotes rapid tissue repair, while also helping to reduce inflammation, soreness, and pain-without requiring you to over-rely on NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug).
