  1. Multi-tools, the most important item in the mountain bikers arsenal

A multi-tool is one of the most essential accessories for a mountain biker. No-one wants to get stuck out on the trail with crooked bars or saddle from a tumble. Does your mountain biker already have a multi-tool? No problem because they can always use one more! Having one in the car, one in the garage and a spare one in their hydration pack or frame bag means whenever they need an instant on the go fix, they’ll have a tool on hand right when they need it. If your mountain biker likes to go on day trips on the trails, choose a multi-tool like the Lezyne V Pro which offers a compact and lightweight option that can fit in a pocket. If your mountain biker likes to adventure further afield on multi-day treks or goes hard and needs something burlier with more tools, take a look at the Topeak Alien II or the Topeak Survival Gear Box.

  1. Goggles and Sunglasses

Something most mountain bikers desperately need but rarely splurge out on for themselves is eye protection. If your rider likes to wear a full-face helmet then a pair of goggles will be a perfect option, available in a range of colours and lens types from clear to super cool mirror lenses, and even photochromatic lenses that react to different light levels, a pair of goggles doesn’t just protect riders from vision blurring airflow, dirt and dust kickup and sunstrike, they also straight up look cool. If your rider has a slightly more casual approach to riding then a pair of sunglasses will be their new favorite cycling accessory. Unlike normal sports sunglasses that can be far too dark to safely ride in, cycling sunglasses are tailor made for riding so offer specialized lenses and treatments to ensure they offer high impact durability and enhanced vision no matter how hard the rider works or what trail conditions they encounter.
