We're the first to admit that some of these suggestions are ridiculously expensive – top-end bikes and components that we realise very few people are going to consider. Even if they’re not for you, we hope you enjoy taking a look at them.
At the top of our list, we’ve also included components/clothing that are high-end in their particular category – £245 sunglasses, for instance, and a £629 bike computer – but which are a bit more realistic for some people.
This means that we’re offering you a mix of practical items that put in an exceptional performance – which a lot of you might put on your shortlist – and some of the most exclusive cycling products out there.
If the prices here are too high for you to consider, we’ll have plenty more Christmas gift guides here on road.cc.
We’ve split our selection into:
• High-end gifts (£200+)
• Big, big buys (£1,000+)
• Superyacht owners’ club (£5,000+)
