Cyclists can be notoriously hard to shop for, we often already have a bunch of gear. What else is needed? We’re here to help! Browse below for fun gift ideas for every type of cyclist, with options for any budget.
Gifts for Triathletes
Stages SB20+ remote shifters
The Stages SB20 Smart Bike is the only smart bike on the market that you can add aero bars to and ride in your triathlon position without having to put a bike on the trainer. Triathletes will rejoice at not having to wear out expensive components on their triathlon bike, all while still training in the very specific and taxing TT position. To complete this setup, purchase the SB20 with the remote shifters and use any pair of clip on aero bars (not sold by Stages).
Gifts for New Cyclists

The Stages Power Meter for Shimano 105 is the perfect first power meter for a beginning cyclists ready to take the next step in their training. It is affordable, and compatible with any Shimano Hallowtech II road bottom bracket. Give the gift of power with a Stages Power meter and this cyclist will see improvement in no time!
Gifts for Gravel Cyclists
The Stages Dash L200 is the perfect gift for every gravel cyclist, even those who don’t ride with power. Cycling specific maps on the Stages Dash allow gravel cyclists to explore new roads, and the 12-18 hour battery life is ready for even the longest adventures. The ultra-bright screen on the Stages Dash adjusts automatically to light conditions. The biggest benefit of the Stages Dash is Automatic Profiles, this feature adds or removes data fields based on connected sensors. This means if you forget your heart rate monitor one day, Dash will automatically remove heart rate data fields so you aren’t looking at empty cells or pages. If you get on your road bike with a power meter the next day, Dash will pair and automatically build pages with tons of full-color power data.
