Zwift Holiday Gift Guide: Cycling

on November 10, 2020

The holidays are almost here. Is there a Zwifter on your list? Here’s our guide to this year’s best gifts for cyclists who use Zwift—from fun and useful stocking stuffers to top indoor cycling tech.


Wahoo TICKR FIT Heart Rate Armband

For those who find chest straps too uncomfortable, an armband heart rate monitor is a great alternative. Strap the TICKR FIT around your forearm and it will broadcast your heart rate to Zwift using Bluetooth and ANT+. US $79.99

Abi Williams (Social Media Community Manager) says: "It's comfortable to wear and less constricting than a chest monitor, especially during those harder efforts. Also it's swift to remove after your ride when things get sweaty... It also connects quickly to Zwift meaning I'm ready to ride with ease."

Elite Sterzo Smart Steering Block

If the Zwifter in your life can’t wait to try out steering on the roads of Watopia, here’s the gift for them. Right now, the Elite STERZO is the only hardware that’s compatible with steering on tarmac roads in Zwift. It connects to Zwift via Bluetooth, letting you steer your avatar by moving your handlebars left and right. The STERZO is an electronic riser block that features a rotating pivot, along with an automatic return system so you can easily bring your wheel back to center. US $109.99

Mike Bhatt (Gameplay Programmer) says: "The Sterzo allows you to take full control of your avatar, making your Zwift ride even more dynamic and your races more tactical than ever before!"

Wahoo KICKR Bike Desk

For the Zwifter who has everything—and just needs somewhere to keep it! This adjustable bike desk is a sturdy and elegant way to keep everything you need at your fingertips during a ride. It has a rubber mat for grip, cord holes for cable organization, a built-in tablet and phone stand, and wheels to make moving or packing up the desk a breeze. US $249.99

Leah Thorvilson (Marketing Communications Manager) says: "The Wahoo desk is the perfect addition to any Zwift setup. Its convenient adjustable height and rolling wheels allow for multiple uses, plus the grippy surface keeps my laptop and water bottles secure so they don't slide around."


Wahoo KICKR Climb

For Zwifters who love to feel the hills, the KICKR CLIMB takes immersion to a new level! This front riser tilts your bike to match Zwift’s climbs. The CLIMB also comes with a remote control that will manually adjust the tilt. It’s only compatible with the new Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, or KICKR SNAP smart trainers. US $599.99

Julius Hipolito (Release Engineer) says: "ExHILLarating is a word that comes to mind. The KICKR CLIMB adds that extra immersion to the Zwift experience. It gets you out of the saddle to practice your form - and the benefits show indoor and out!"

Stages SB20 Smart Bike

This indoor bike has the authentic feel and fit of a real road bike. Plus, it’s fully compatible with Zwift. It’s the perfect gift for someone who wants an all-in-one solution to indoor training, or maybe a pair of Zwifters who want to share a bike with an easily adjustable fit. It works as a smart trainer, featuring responsive electronic resistance for climbing, accelerating, and coasting along with configurable shifting controls and sprint buttons. The Stages SB20 includes a tablet and phone holder, two USB charging ports, and both ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity. US $2,899

Crystal Haggard (E-Commerce Merchandiser) says: "The Stages SB20 Smart Bike is so smooth and silent! It's been a perfect fit for our household of multiple riders with a wide range of heights. The geometry adjustments are easy and the smart built-in features like the phone and iPad holders with USB charging ports are very convenient."

Stocking stuffers

Zwift Sweat Towels

Your Zwifter can keep their body and bike looking fresh with these colorful Zwift Sweat Towels! Made of 100% cotton, this set of three comes with one towel each in bright orange, pink, and blue. They can drape one over the handlebars, keep one handy on the treadmill for wiping dry, and save one as a spare for the next ride. US $36

Zwift Sweatbands

This pair of sweatbands will help the Zwifter in your life keep sweat out of their eyes and look stylish at the same time! They’re made of antimicrobial Dryline® fabric with a watertight sweat seal that redirects perspiration away from the face and eyes. US $29
