Give the gift of faster. Training with power isn't just for pros and data nerds, and Stages makes it easy with their highly accurate crankarm-based power meter, user-configurable Dash head unit and Stages Link training software. All work great separately but when combined, you'll have access to custom tailored training plans and the same performance metrics used by Team Sky.
MAAP OUTLINE STOW JACKET
For whatever weather the changing season brings, the Outline Stow Jacket is MAAP's lightest weight and most packable jacket to date. Windproof and water-resistant, it’s weather-ready and easy to stow – ideal for un-ideal conditions. Made with a water-resistant and breathable 10K membrane eVent® fabric, the Outline Stow Jacket has a lightweight, aero fit. And if the weather clears up, it's highly packable for a jersey pocket stash.
In the cycling world of But Firsts, Kinetic Koffee is definitely one to have on your list. Roasted by a die-hard cyclist and industry veteran Mark Ritz right here in Northern California, Kinetic has a variety of blends for every coffee palette. We personally love his Breakfast Buzz blend that's perfect for a pre-ride cuppa. Check out every variety and get some for your home café.
the athletic Community
The Athletic Community's bright one-of-a-kind style should already be a part of your kit game, but if not, then adding a piece from their Team Wooly Mammoth Collection should be your next step. From socks to caps to bidons, there's something blue, pink, and awesome, for every price point and appendage.
GRound keeper fenders
Our good friends Tony Baumann and Keely Shannon recently launched their super rad company, Ground Keeper Fenders, and even though they're currently only available for mountain bikes, we knew the gift guide wouldn't be complete without giving you the first 411. These unique fenders keep the mud off when you need them, easily come off when you don't, and are sure to get you noticed - in a good way. Don't see a design you like? No problem - they also do custom.
Protect your noggin. It's that simple. But let's face it, it's never that simple. You need a helmet that's going to protect you, keep you cool, and keep you looking cool. Bell has your back, and your head. The Bell Falcon and the Bell Falcon - Joy Ride (shown in the pic) comes in an array of wicked colors to matchey match to your heart's content.
Jesse LeDoux is the genius behind our VYNL Fights x LeDoux KOM pins, and his latest design, the Power Pin set is meant to remind the wearer of the positive power they have to change themselves and the world. Pretty awesome, right? Get all 5 as a set, or choose your shape/power individually. Who wouldn't want to give the gift of inner strength this Holiday season?
