Do you have a MTB woman in your life, and you're stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? Well, we have the answers for you.
The supermarkets began stocking the selection boxes back in September, giving us all the false illusion that we have plenty of time to grab those essential gifts for the shredders in our lives. With just 4 weeks to go until Christmas Gift Judgement Day, we thought we'd give you a little nudge in the right direction with some ideas that'll secure your comfy spot in her good books.
SHREDLY Shorts ($100 / £66 )
We're a big fan of SHREDLY MTB long shorts, and when you click on the link, you'll see why. The colours, the designs and the cut are too appealing to ignore. Made from a soft-shell material, SHREDLY shorts are comfortable for a full day of adventure, and breathable with their discrete mesh vents. The best feature about these shorts are that they don't have to be just for the bike, they look great as casual shorts too!
DHarco Jersey ($65AUS / £31)
DHarco jerseys are great for any off-road rider, trail or downhill. We particularly love the 3/4 cut sleeves, allowing you to wear your elbow pads comfortably whilst lightly protecting your upper arms from those pesky branches. The feminine cut is really flattering and the designs are simple and elegant, easy to match and coordinate with your riding attire.
DaFeet Socks ($11/£8)
Christmas just isn't the same unless you get at least one pair of socks, so why not make them MTB Socks? DaFeet offer an extensive range of cycling socks which we just love to coordinate with. Funky fun designs on a great product provides an all round thumbs up from us.
FiveTen Women's Freeriders (£80)
Shoes shoes shoes... It's commonly believed that us women love shoes. Well, we love the FiveTen women's Freerider's. Earlier this year, FiveTen finally released their women's specific range, and it's hard to not be excited about them. A comfortable trainer style flat shoe that look great on and off the bike!

Stem Captain Clock (£17)
US company, Stem Captain have come to the market with their quirky and functional stem caps. We find the clock the most practical, as there's nothing worse than needing to check the time, and having to fumble around your sleeves to wrench out your watch. A variety of colours are available, and it isn't just clocks they offer, but photo frames, thermometers and compasses too! Suitable for all 1" and 1 1/8" threadless headsets.
