It’s that time of year where we pay homage to the hairy-toed patriarch of the family: good old dad. As Father’s Day approaches, everyone’s scratching their heads about what to buy him so we’ve curated a handy gift list to help you with your last-gasp buying.
Here’s seven prezzies to put a smile on dad’s face this Father’s Day.
Muc-Off Ultimate Tubeless Kit
It’s a proper dad thing to do, fixing a puncture. Running the inner tube through water to locate the hole, marking it with chalk and then applying the patch. Well, sorry dad… that skill’s obsolete these days. Start your dad on the tubeless revolution with the Muc-Off Ultimate Tubeless Setup Kit which contains everything needed to get a tubeless-ready wheelset set up and ready to roll, including rim tape, seal patches, tubeless valves and sealant.
Bontrager BITS Integrated Multitool
Just when you thought you’d bought him every tool he’d ever need, along come Bontrager with this super-useful multi-tool. This compact beauty is designed for integrated storage in compatible Trek road frames, featuring CNC-machined keys for lightweight durability with 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 mm hex along with T25 and flat-head screwdriver in an ultralight aluminium alloy design. Very nice.
Torq Hydration Bottle Pack
We’re not saying dad is a dried up old bloke: we could all use a little hydration after a hard day on the trails. Torq Hydration is a lightly flavoured drink mix, which has been formulated to optimise fluid and electrolyte delivery over any other factor. It’s actually better at hydrating than water; perfect for long road trips, enduro and indoor Zwift sessions. This starter pack includes a 500ml Torq bottle with grip cap and wide mouth opening, and six mixed flavour hydration sachets.
Stylish, comfortable, grippy, waterproof, protective… gloves come in all sorts, shapes and sizes for all types of rider. Dad might like some heavy duty knuckle protection for all the times he takes a spill off the berms while trying to keep up with the kids. We have hundreds of gloves in stock right now in styles for all seasons and all types of riding. Dirtpaw from Fox Racing features a durable nylon top of hand with direct inject TPR knuckle coverage as well as a padded palm, stretch mesh finger gussets to increase airflow and silicone print at the finger tips for lever grip.
We know dads feel simply awesome in a pair of cycling shades. Who wouldn’t? We have in stock more than 50 pairs of the stunning range from Tifosi, which come in a fantastic range of eye-catching frame and lens styles. They also come with high performance design, with features including light-responsive tinting and hydrophilic rubber. We particularly love Tifosi’s Amok model in this acid green frame finish.
Part gift and part payback for all those ones he’s given you at Christmas, cycling socks are actually pretty cool these days. They’re certainly a big part of keeping comfy on a long ride during a hot or wet day, offering high grade performance through things like breathability, ventilation and compression support. But they’re not just about practicality – check out these noisy-as-hell Ranger Cushion Socks from Fox Racing.
Still not sure what to get for dad? Then a handful of gift vouchers is the perfect alternative and can be used on anything from our huge stock of bikes, components, clothing, accessories and more. We even do “wedding list” style arrangements, where several people can contribute to a fund set up for dad. Please ask a member of our team for more information, whether in store or on the phone.
