Christmas gifts for mountain bikers

We brought you Christmas gifts for gravel lovers last week so now it’s time to move on to mountain bikers. Struggling to think of what to gift the mountain biker in your life? How about starting small with the Bicycle Chain gift voucher and building from there? We have compiled a list of potential gift areas you may want to think about.

Kit up

New kit day is always fun and mixed with Christmas, that’s a real recipe for excitement. We have a wide range of kit on our site so here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling.

Tops are a good place to start. At Bicycle Chain we have a range of stylish, comfortable tops from Endura and Dare 2B in both women’s and men’s fit. These loose-fitting tops will make you look the part on the trails.

As it’s winter, wet days in the saddle are in no short supply. Give the gift of a jacket this Christmas to keep the mountain biker in your life in the festive spirit. The Endura Singletrak jackets will have you facing down the rain with its waterproof and breathable 3-layer fabric and attached hood. If you’re not a fan of hoods, how about the Altura Nightvision Twilight jacket which is both waterproof and reflective. It even has pockets for your Christmas hip flask.

Next up are baggies. At Bicycle Chain we stock Endura’s line of comfortable, stylish shorts that includes the MT500 Spray Shorts. Great for riding on wet and mushy trails, the Spray shorts are totally waterproof with a 3-layer seam for protection. Alternatively, the Hummvee shorts we have in stock are already brown so it doesn’t matter if they get muddy, or if you’re on a particularly scary trail…

When you’re out on the trails over winter it’s your extremities that really take a hit. The wind, rain and spray can make your ride a miserable affair if you’re prone to cold hands and feet. Keep the Raynaud’s at bay with a proper pair of gloves from Endura or GripGrab.

Make sure not to neglect your feet either. Prevent your ride from being ruined by cold spray with a pair of thermal socks.

New lid and fresh kicks

At Bicycle Chain we have helmets coming out of our ears for all types of mountain biking, whether it be cross country, enduro or downhill. We stock a large range of cross-country helmets from Giro and Specialized at entry, mid and performance price ranges. The dirt is calling and if you need a new stylish lid, we’ve got you covered.

And if you’re the sort of person who likes to chuck themselves off the side of a mountain and let gravity take over, we have a range of full-face helmets just for you.

A pair of shoes always goes down well at Christmas and we have a great range of SPD ready shoes from Shimano. The popular Bontrager Evoke Mountain shoe is also in stock, and if you want to go for the Scott of the Antarctic look this winter, how about the Specialized Defroster Trail shoe. Keep those pedals turning with toasty feet.

Accessories

Bike accessories make good Christmas gifts too and will pad out the tree nicely. We have a huge range of mountain bike accessories at our stores, but it is always worth thinking about mudguards, lights and baggage. We will happily help attach any new accessories to our customers’ bikes, and there may even be the odd mince pie hanging around to help things along.

New year, new bike

Finally, how about gifting, or maybe contributing towards making 2020 your best year on the bike? At Bicycle Chain we have a large range of mountain bikes from the likes of Giant, Trek and Specialized for riders of all shapes and sizes. So, pop in store and one of our lovely staff members will fit you up, kit you out and get you on the trails in no time.

Bicycle Chain is here this winter to service your festive needs. Pop down to one of our stores this Christmas to find the best deals and kit for the mountain biker in your life.
