Holiday Gift Guide for the Cyclist in Your Life

As the holidays are fast approaching, we seem to find ourselves asking the same question we did last year… What do we get the person who has everything? In general, cyclists also fall under the category of “gear junkie”. We scour the blogs, websites, and news articles to find what the newest, lightest, most innovative, and coolest new product is out there. And then we usually get it! This makes cyclists some of the hardest people to shop for.

So we at Giordana put together our top picks that will surely put a smile on that special cyclist’s face.

 

 

Lightweight Tubular Base Layer

Price: $55-$65

The new “socks and underwear” gift you always get from your mom, the Lightweight Tubular Base Layer for men and women is the perfect gift! It’s the one article of cycling kit we all think we can live without, but we really can’t. The Lightweight base layers' Dryarn™ fabric rapidly moves moisture away from the skin and takes it to the outside where it instantly evaporates so you can stay dry and comfortable.

 

Trade FR-C ‘Pesca’ Kit

Price: $185 jersey and $185 bib short

The perfect spring kit for that special lady cyclist in your life. The Trade FR-C Jersey is constructed of premium level materials and utilizes each fabric strategically to create an extremely lightweight, breathable, and race ready piece.The Trade FR-C Bib Short is constructed on a curve to clone your body’s natural riding position eliminating puckers and creases throughout your full range of motion. The selection of fabrics and the fit create a bib short that is so comfortable and stays in place so well, that once you put them on you won’t give them a second thought. All Giordana Women's apparel is designed using the Women's Contour Fit system, meaning the paneling and construction is derived from a woman's form in the riding position.  

 

G-Shield

Price: $70-$200

A good pair of arm warmers can extend the temperature range of your cycling wardrobe dramatically. The G-Shield Arm Warmers are no exception, and are equipped to repel water, block wind, as well as keep your forearms and biceps warm. You can’t go wrong with a good pair of arm warmers. The G-Shield Collection also offers a Short Sleeve Jersey,  Bibs, Bib Tights, Leg and Knee Warmers, all designed to keep the rider warm and dry in wet conditions by preventing fabric saturation.

Giordana Sport Classic Performance Wool Jersey

For the traditional man! It’s all about the fabric. The entire jersey is constructed of polyester/Merino wool blend fabric which is soft against the skin, breathable, and keeps the body cool or warm depending on the temperature, as only natural wool fibers can.

Stocking Stuffers

These items are the perfect small stocking stuffer!

The Gaiter is a "must have" piece for your Fall/Winter/Spring wardrobe. It keeps the neck warm and can help prevent a chill from creeping down your shoulders or back.

 

Merino Wool Socks

Price: $12-$15

Giordana Merino Wool Socks are one of the most versatile accessories in the entire Giordana collection. Well suited for summer or winter temperatures, Merino Wool is a truly magical natural fiber. Comes in both a 5” and 7” cuff height and women's specific version.

 

Over/Under Glove

Price: $25

Our Over/Under glove serves either as a lightweight glove on its own, or can be layered underneath other gloves as a liner. Adding a glove liner under a sturdy winter glove can vastly extend the lower end temperatures a cyclist can comfortably ride in.
