The Fenix 5 Plus can also sync with Spotify playlists so you can to listen to your favorite tunes while you ride, run, or hike.

Mountain bikers shell out a lot of cash for high performance forks and shocks, but even experienced riders can be confounded by suspension setup. Quarq’s ShockWiz can be used on front and rear suspension. The ShockWiz transmits ride data to an accompanying smartphone app, taking the guesswork out of dialing in suspension by giving riders advice on air pressure, as well as compression, and rebound settings.

This digital tire gauge will help mountain bikers precisely find their preferred tire pressures. Topeak’s Smart Gauge D2 features a rotating head that helps it access hard to reach valves and an air bleed valve to fine tune pressure. The SmartHead works seamlessly with both Presta and Schrader valves. This pocket-sized gauge can do more than monitor tire pressures: with a maximum pressure of 250psi, it can also keep tabs on your suspension set-up.

Specialized Ambush ANGi Helmet

Gifts for gadget loving mountain bikers

Specialized improved this popular trail helmet by adding the MIPS SL protection system, which is designed to mitigate rotational impacts and has a sensor that can send notifications in the event of a crash. The integrated ANGi sensor acts as a ride tracker, crash sensor, and safety beacon. ANGi measures forces transmitted to the helmet, and then if appropriate sends a notification to the Specialized Ride app on your smartphone when it encounters an impact. If you took a minor tumble, just swipe the notification away. If it’s something more serious and you’re unable to dismiss the notification, ANGi can notify your emergency contacts with your last known GPS coordinates.
