The Ritchey Comp Venturemax could be the perfect upgrade for someone’s gravel shred wagon.
The bar is designed to flare wider for more control on the drops and offers an array of hand positions to stay comfortable on a variety of surfaces for extended periods of time.

K-Edge has risen to prominence at the WorldTour level with its tried, tested and reliable out-front computer mounts.
The American aluminium-machining specialists offer computer mounts, GoPro mounts, chain catchers, number plate mounts and more.
The K-Edge XL Combo mount Integrates an out-front computer mount with enough room to accommodate a Garmin 1000 series, as well as a GoPro underneath to capture stunning views while riding in one sleek mount, which will likely last for years of adventures.
Even with waterproof frame luggage, an open zip could lead to damage on electronics or valuables that need to stay dry. A compact dry bag for valuables will ensure these stay dry even if your recipient decides to take a route through a deeper than expected river crossing.

When the day’s riding is over, walking around in cleats during the evening is uncomfortable and can cause slips. Carrying a pair of flip-flops is a simple and low-bulk solution to walking around safely and comfortably post-ride.
Ecoalf’s flip-flops are made in the Rioja region of Spain using old vehicle tyres (from within the region to save on unnecessary emissions). A combination of pressure and heat binds the old rubber together without adhesives or chemicals, with each pair using around 344g of recycled tyres.
Founded in Marin County, California in the early 1980s, WTB offers an array of tyres for almost any adventure you can think of.

WTB also offers tyres for road, gravel, off-road and cyclocross.
