The Ultimate cycling gift guide: Christmas presents the cyclists in your life will actually use

The Ultimate cycling gift guide: Christmas presents the cyclists in your life will actually use

by Jake Wright on Dec 05, 2023

We cyclists are a finicky bunch. Obsessed with our bikes in a way onlookers can only scoff at, and we can be snobs about it too. Buy us something from the wrong brand or last season’s style and it’ll get a forced smile and then sit in the wardrobe for the rest of its life. So, if you are struggling to find a present for the Lyra-lover in your life, don’t worry. It’s not you, it’s us.

So, we thought we would put together a little gift guide to help you out. We assume you’ve already bought them a novelty mug and that bike shaped Pizza cutter, so why not buy a gift they’ll actually use beyond boxing day?

We have broken the guide down into 2 sections to keep it simple: Stocking fillers and Under the Tree presents.


Stocking Fillers for Cyclists

 Keep it simple, keep it budget friendly. All the gifts in this section have a maximum spend of £30, are small and easy to stuff into a stocking.

 Instead of socks with bikes on, why not go for a decent pair of cycling socks? Our Paragon summer socks, and paragon winter socks provide breathable, durable freshness for your feet. Packed with highly technical fibres and timeless, subtle styling.

Something for when they’re not riding their bikes? We’ve got you covered. Our range of T shirts provide a subtle nod to the sport. The Cragg Vale T shirt features a topological graphic of the UK’s longest climb, visited by the Tour de France in 2014. Or our Manchester Bee T shirt pays homage to Lusso’s Mancunian roots, one of the longest standing UK cycling clothing Manufactures, and one of the only ones still standing today.

Under the Tree Presents for Cyclists

Ok, the cyclist in your life is getting the special treatment. They’ve had their eye on some new gear for a while and it’s time to show them that you know what they like. We are here to help.

If they like Gravel riding, bike packing or touring, look no further than our Terra range. All the products in this collection are designed for road and off road use. With technical abrasion resistant materials, extra storage capacity pockets in our bib shorts and bib tights (for men and women) and vibration dampening chamois padding. We have just released a new handlebar bag too!

If they stick to road riding, our Perform winter jacket, award winning Perform carbon bib shorts and paragon deep winter base layers are a few of our most loved garments. Available in timeless colours and built to last.

A bit about Lusso…

If you’ve not heard of us before, we are Lusso cycle clothing. A small independent cycling brand founded in 1982 and defying the norm by carefully hand making all our garments in our Factory in the North of Manchester. We offer after care services such as a Free repairs service so you know we are here to help if anything goes sideways, and we’ve been using sustainable materials as standard since 2008, before it was cool.

And if after all this you’re still stuck, just get them a gift card!
