10 Gifts for the Spinning Obsessed

With the holidays just around the corner, you may be scratching your head about what to give your cycling-obsessed friends. Never fear, ClassPasser: we have you covered with ten great gifts for every spinner on your list.

And if you’re a spin enthusiast, too, consider this the starting point for your wish list. With swag like this, we bet that next year Santa will be making his rounds by bike: 


1- For their feet:
Lightweight with a flexible leather-and-mesh exterior, these shoes not only look super sleek: they also have recessed cleats and a rubber outsole, meaning she’ll look less like a penguin trying to get from her locker to her bike.
Give it now: Shimano SH-WR35 Women’s SPD Sport Touring, $74


2- For support:
She can show off that fabulous spinning body with a bra that’s supportive and even more fashionable. The Luma from Lole is moisture wicking and stretchable and comes in a variety of colors to match all of her spin outfits.
Give it now: LUMA Bra from Lole Atelier, $60


3- For hydration: 
Stop sipping toxins – and be good to the planet – with a stainless steel water bottle from ThinkSport. The sport top spout and easy-to-grip contours make it perfect for the bike, while the insulated walls ensure that (although she’ll be sweating), her bottle won’t be.
Give it now: ThinkSport Insulated Sports Bottle, $20


4- For everything:
Her days of carrying a beat-up duffel bag to the gym are over: now she can tote all of her spin essentials, and anything else she needs for the day, in this gorgeous bag from Lululemon. It’s waterproof and has a handy pocket for cell phone and water bottle; plus, if she’s also a yoga fiend, there’s a strap for her mat.
Give it now: Lululemon Urban Sanctuary Bag, $128


5- For energy: 
Help your friends refuel from class with a delicious protein- and healthy-fat snack. Macrobars are a great stocking stuffer and simple to throw in a gym bag for post-workout replenishing. Try the Balanced Goodness Granola + Coconut flavor for energy or the Peanut Protein to help rebuild muscle.
Give it now: Macrobars, $3 each/ $43 for 15


6- For her mani:
Sometimes she needs to focus on something other than her burning quads. These nail decals are a cute (thematic!) distraction for those steep uphill climbs. Isn’t exertion a little easier when her fingertips look adorable?
Give it now: Etsy Nail Decals, $6


7- For the sweat sesh:
Not only are these eco-friendly, they’re small enough to tuck into a water bottle cage on a bike (no more battling to keep her towel on the handlebars). People Towels offers a variety of cute designs to suit everyone on your list.  These also make a great alternative to wasteful paper towel for handwashing.
Give it now: People Towels Organic Cotton Towels, $6


8- For the footsies: 
A simple way to say, “You motivate me to ride harder!” – these bright socks in a light, breathable fabric with low cuffs will fit into any cycling shoe and make for a comfy ride. No bunching, thanks.
Give it now: REI Smartwool Ultra Light Micro Bike Socks, $10


9- For that crazy hair:
Nothing can kill a spin-class buzz like hair sticking to her sweaty face. Keep her bangs at bay – and make a big, bold statement – with a brightly colored headband.
Give it now: Lululemon Flyaway Tamer Headband, $12


10- For their booty: 
Great spin class tights have at least these three things: a medium- to high-waistband (to prevent them from falling down on those intense standing sprints), moisture-wicking fabric and good stretch. Opt for classic black or go a little crazy with a bright pattern.
Give it now: Athleta Reflective Power Lift Tight, $94
