The dual dial tightening system makes adjustments quick and easy, and there’s an integrated heel grip to stop them slipping.
Halfords Turbo Trainer
Know someone who’s always complaining about the weather getting in the way of their rides? Get them the Halfords Turbo Trainer. Bringing cycling indoors, it turns bikes into indoor fitness trainers and is a great way to get your cycling fix over the colder months. Training is easy thanks to six levels of magnetic resistance which can be remotely adjusted, providing a high-quality workout whenever you need it.
Halfords Magnetless Cadence Sensor
If you’re buying for a casual commuter cyclist who’s keen to level up their riding, the Halfords Magnetless Cadence Sensor is a perfect gift. A cadence sensor measures a rider’s RPM (or revolutions per minute), to help them improve their efficiency. This Halfords model is lightweight and compact, meaning it won’t feel obtrusive to the rider, and thanks to its high water resistance, they won’t have to worry about a wet-weather commute!
Boardman Men’s Socks
Rounding off our list is a last-minute classic – socks! But these aren’t just any socks. The Boardman Men’s Socks are next-level cycling socks, designed to keep your feet cool, dry, and comfortable as you rack up the miles.
They’re fully moisture-wicking to draw sweat away from your feet and prevent any chaffing. For a commuter cyclist who’s starting to get serious about riding, you’ll be giving them the gift of cosy feet on every journey.
