5 Gifts for Bikers Under $25
Biking can be expensive. Gifts for bikers don’t have to be.
We’ve put together a list of gifts that are not only useful, but won’t break the bank, and aren’t just another pair of boring socks. These are products that we here at the shop use and can vouch for!
Polar Bottles Breakaway Muck Insulated Zipper Water Bottle ($18)
Picture this: you’re out on a fat bike ride in winter. It’s a crisp sunny day and the trail grooming is spectacular. You stop for a moment to enjoy the scenery and hydrate, only to find out that your water bottle is frozen solid.
Not a problem with this insulated water bottle from Polar. It’s got three layers of insulation that’ll keep things liquid in the winter and keep your drinks cool in the summer. Plus, it has a muck guard valve cover, so you don’t get a mouthful of dirt each time you want to take a drink.
Embark Maple Energy ($6.99)
It seems like maple syrup energy is everywhere right now, with lots of different brands competing. Embark’s version is a step above the rest.
One of the things we liked the most about Embark is that you can reseal the package - take a sip and put it back in your pack without worrying that you’ll get the inside of your bag all syrupy.
We’ve even done a shop taste test versus one of their biggest competitors and found that we enjoyed the Embark flavors more, especially the coffee flavor. If you know someone that’s a fan of elderberry, they’ll love the Elderberry Maple Energy.
Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Dry Lube ($16.99)
Chances are that you know a biker who paid more for their bikes than you paid for your first car. Bikes are a huge investment and taking good care of that investment is a must.
Enter Muc-Off’s C3 Ceramic Dry Lube. It’s a premium chain lube that’s perfect for damp, dry, and dusty conditions. It even comes with a tiny blacklight flashlight so you can make sure you haven’t missed a spot.
Chamois Butt’r Anti Chafe Cream ($19.99)
If the biker on your gift list rides for hours on end, they’ll understand why this stuff is important. Sometimes, it can literally be the item that saves your butt! We’ll spare you the gruesome stories from before we learned about Chamois Butt’r - just trust us on this one.
Available in the original regular style, a PH-balanced women’s version, and a tingly cooling Euro version (which happens to be the shop favorite).
Skratch Labs Sport Hydration Mix ($21.95)
There’s a reason we carry Skratch Labs - it works AND it tastes great! The sport hydration mix is carefully formulated to match the electrolytes lost in sweat while not messing up your stomach. With seven different flavors to choose from, like Fruit Punch, caffeinated Raspberry Limeade, and the old stand-by Lemon Lime, there’s something for everyone.
