The holidays — and winter — are right around the corner, and we’re here for it. Prepare for both with our rider-curated gift guide featuring hand-picked gear from the 45NRTH team. Our proven cold-weather bike clothing, tires, and accessories grant any cyclist the greatest gift of all: a year-round riding season.
Here’s the gear our team wants most this year:
“I want a pair of the We're Here For It Midweight Crew Socks — Merino wool-blend socks are awesome for any outdoor activity during our cold Midwest winters. You can never have too many pairs.” –Hilary, e-commerce content & experience manager
“I want the Wølfgar BOA boots; they look perfect for those extra-cold winter days packed full of activity on and off the bike.” –Zane, tire category manager
“I’d love a set of Vanhelga tires for riding my fat-tire bike before and after icy season. They’d complement my studded Dillinger 4s perfectly.” –Harrison, copywriter
“I would love the Women’s Grunnur Base Layer because A) I always run cold and B) it is the perfect layering option that provides exception warmth, breathability and comfort. You can’t beat the softness of this piece!” –Laura, soft goods category manager
“I would like a pair of the new Ragnarök BOA boots because the colder temps are finally here! I want a shoe that keeps my feet warm and dry as I continue to ride in this chilly and wet weather.” –Paul, graphic designer
”I would love a set of Wrathlordes or Wrathchilds because I need all the XL studs I can get to help keep me upright and on the trail when I am out riding.” –Adam, sales manager
