Christmas gifts for the cruiser rider
The John Lewis advert has been released (does it come out earlier every year?), which means it's officially time to start panicking thinking about buying Christmas presents for your nearest and dearest. Or not - we're not here to tell you how to navigate Christmas.
Below we've outlined some products which will best serve the cruiser rider in your life. Whether they ride a huge continent-devouring Harley-Davidson Road Glide or a Triumph Bobber, there's sure to be something in this list to brighten their Christmas morning.
Dickies HC canvas jacket
This textile jacket from workwear brand Dickies certainly looks cool and comes with reinforced sleeves and shoulders as well as pockets at the elbows, shoulder and back for armour.
Cuffs and waist are all adjustable and the jacket features four big external pockets.
Icon Raiden UX jeans
To the naked eye these look like regular jeans, but they're actually completely waterproof and breathable textile trousers from US brand Icon. The HYCOR chassis takes care of waterproofing and breathability, while there's also D3O armour in the hips and knees.
Perfect for staying dry and looking stylish.
Dr. Martens Faris boots
These classically-styled Dr. Martens boots are constructed from waterproof full-grain leather with D3O armour at the shins and and ankles to keep your feet safe in the event of a spill.
As with most bike boots they feature a reinforced gear shift pad and are secured via a waterproof zip at the rear.
Roland Sands Design Peristyle gloves
These short motocross-style gloves look spot on for short, warm winter rides and come pre-curved for improved comfort when riding. The rear of the hands is padded, but there's no significant crash protection.
Bell Bullit helmet
Inspired by the very first Bell Star helmet, the Bullitt offers classic retro style with full face protection. The interior is removable and washable, and there are multiple visors available to make it your own. Comes with a five year warranty.
Gear Gremlin cleaning brush kit
Keep on top of the acres of chrome and other shiny bits on your cruiser with these nylon brushes from Gear Gremlin. They're perfect for getting into all those hard to reach places.
Knox Studio rucksack
Proving rucksacks don't have to be function-over-form is the stylish Studio rucksack from British firm Knox. It's constructed from fully-waterproof nylon and leather and boasts 25-litres of storage space.
