The Cycling Gear You Need For Bike To Work Week

The Cycling Gear You Need For Bike To Work Week
Next week is  Bike To Work Week – to celebrate the cyclists who will get out and ride to work, we put together a list of some of the necessities for the ride.

State Bicycle Co 4130  |  Amazon Link  $459.99  An exceptional value in an entry-level road bike, the State 4130 Road features a simple 8-speed transmission and a lightweight build, ready for racks and fenders for serious commuting duty.

ABUS Pedelec 2.0 | $150 A bicycle helmet that meets the high safety requirements of the big city. The deep temple area provides additional protection, while the clever integrated rain hood can be quickly pulled over the helmet at the first sign of rain, and visibility is aided by large integrated LED tail light. Ideal for quick on-and-offs in the city, the Fidlock magnetic buckle can be operated with one hand.

Muc-Off C3 Dry Ceramic Lube  | $9.99  Keep your chain turning smoothly with the C3 Dry Ceramic lubricant. Designed to provide total corrosion protection and unparalleled performance in dry, dusty and damp conditions with a biodegradable petroleum free formula, you won’t have to worry about yourself, your bike, or the planet on your next ride.

ABUS Mini 410  MSRP $34.99 |  Amazon Link  | The ABUS 410 series packs a lot of lock into a package small enough to carry on your belt but strong enough for city and campus use. Unlike many of the outright top selling locks on Amazon, the ABUS Mini 410 is rated by Sold Secure, the top independent testing firm for lock products. Consider a Sold Secure rating as a “seal of approval” that the lock performs as advertised.

DZR Shift  MSRP $69 |  Amazon Link  | DZR’s all around best seller, the Shit is a reflection of street style and urban culture. The understated vibe cloaks serious performance with a variable-flex shank, gumwall sole and reflective heel badge.

Mission Workshop Sanction  MSRP $205 |  Amazon Link  |  The Sanction is just the right size for an everyday pack. Waterproof and exceptionally durable, the clean look hides two external zippered pockets and a flap-pocket. A waist belt can be added to stabilize heavy loads, and accessory pockets can be added to the straps using Mission Workshop’s proprietary  Arkivsystem.

Ottolock |  Hexband  |  Amazon Link  | The Hexband weighs next to nothing (250g for the 30” version) making it possible to carry a lock on every bike ride without a noticeable weight penalty. Lock up at the coffeeshop or make your mid-ride quicky-mart run without having to peek out at your bike every 5 seconds while in the checkout line.

Silca Italian Army Knife Tredici  MSRP $35 |  Amazon Link  | The IAK Tredici combines fully forged mid-length tools with forged aluminum side plates and full stainless steel hardware. The 13 essential tools are just long enough to reach into tight spots and forged for extra durability, making this a supremely functional compact tool kit.

Sunski Topeka Sunglasses  |    MSRP $68 |  Style in motion for an active lifestyle. Because the world needs a pair of wraparound sunglasses that don’t make you look like an action figure. Balanced proportions, a sculpted keyhole nose bridge and straight, subtly tapered arms make the Topekas a rare find in the ‘performance sunglass’ category. Grippy rubber pads ensure the Topekas stay put while you move, while Sunski’s Forever Warranty means you don’t have to worry about unexpected damages.
