Eight Essential Cycling Gifts for Commuters


We are now getting close to delivering our locks to our fantastic backers. We thought we’d give you a list of other urban accessories that we feel complement Litelok® perfectly and would make fantastic cycling gifts this Christmas.

1. Micro Crew Ultra-Light Socks

An ultra light but self described “beast” of a sock. Designed to reduce hotspots and blisters and to stop slipping and bunching, the socks are also super comfortable, fast drying and breathable.

Price-$18.00 (£12.00)

Micro Crew


2. Endura Urban FlipJak Reversible Jacket

A reversible lightweight, windproof jacket that can be worn in black or a more stand out hi-vis colour. Both styles match our BOA Green and Crow Black locks perfectly and will keep you warm and comfortable on those winter rides.




3. Velocity 100% Merino Wool Snood

This snood is perfect for both looking good and protecting your neck and shoulders while taking a ride this winter. Available in two colours, you can wear it up or button it down.




4. Carradice - Stockport City Folder Bag for Brompton

Another product that complements our Herringbone lock, this limited edition bag perfectly fits on to the front of a short and standard Brompton bike frame . As well as its practicality, it is made out of Genuine Harris Tweed and has a fantastic urban look and feel making it the perfect gift for cyclists who like to be trendy. The one featured below is specifically for Brompton but there are a number of different styles on Carradice's website.

These beautifully crafted low-chrome leather and suede boots with an inner sole made of sheep wool make a great urban gift for anyone who wants to be comfortable and look good this winter.

7. Yakkay - Paris Herringbone (Helmet Cover)

We featured Yakkay helmets in our 38 Most Innovative Bike Accessories and Gadgets, but couldn’t resist featuring their fantastic products again.

8. Cleverhood - Electric Houndstooth Rain Cape

Cleverhood provide waterproof street capes perfect for the active city cyclist. As well as being extremely effective in sheltering you from the rain, they look great and come in a variety of styles and colours. Our personal favourite is the Electric Houndstooth which features reflective thread to stand out on those dark nights.
