We're here to help you find that perfect gift for the urban rider in your life

There’s still plenty of time to get those essential Christmas presents, but TWC are here to help take out the faff and hours of online searching. We’ve compiled a few of our favourite commuter cycling products which we think any female rider would love this year.

Ass Savers

These are the original mudguards. Designed to keep your bum safe from splash-backs and the annoying dirty stripe up your back.

Ass Savers are made from a strong polypropylene, and they come in a variety of colours which can be easily attached to most standard saddles.

Madison Merino Winter Sock

Socks for Christmas is an unbreakable tradition in most people’s homes. So keep the spirit up with some merino deep winter socks from Madison.

Designed to keep your feet warm, but breathable, these winter socks are built for performance. With a variety of awesome colours and designs available, your commuting loved one will have the perfect footwear for keeping warm on the bike. Available here for £10.

Knog Oi Bell

One of the most important features to have on your bike is a quality bell. You never know when you need to make your presence known, but staying safe, seen and heard are paramount for all riders.

The Oi bell from Knog was launched earlier this year and has certainly made an impact. It smashed its Kickstarter page after revealing its super slim and sleek design. We’ve been testing it ourselves, and we’re impressed by it’s easy to use and pleasant ring-a-ding ding.

Lezyne Femto Duo

Bike lights are super important for every city and urban cyclist. You never know when you could get caught out in low-light conditions, and having a light on significantly increases your chance of being seen.

It’s got so many cool features, like reflective detail and bike lock attachment, that it doesn’t even look like a cycle specific bag. It even has a rain cover included.
