10. Ridge thermal gel gloves

9. Livall MTL Bluetooth Smart Helmet
Give them a great helmet upgrade and keep them safe at the same time! This smart helmet from Livall features rear-facing LED lights and turning-signals, letting other road users know exactly where cyclists are headed. There’s even a built in SOS function that kicks in if they suddenly stop moving or if the built-in sensor picks up a sudden change in G-force. Our favourite feature however is the pair of built-in Bluetooth speakers inside the helmet, which allow riders to make hands-free phone calls.
