As with other outdoor sports, eye protection is very important when cycling. Cycling goggles protect your eyes from wind, dirt, stones and even small animals on tours. In addition, the MTB goggles must also protect against UV rays and enable optimal vision. You can find a selection of MTB glasses in the NAKED Optics online shop. The glasses are available from €49.99 .
💡 NAKED Optics Insider Tip 💡: If you are not sure which MTB goggles fit best, then you are welcome to give away a NAKED Optics voucher. Simply contact our customer support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will create a voucher code for the birthday child.
Gift idea for mountain bikers: bike wall mount
Who knows the problem: You live in the city and there is neither a bicycle parking space nor a bicycle cellar available at the apartment. This is annoying, especially when you've digged deep into your pocket for your MTB and want to protect it from rain, storms and hail as much as possible. So that you don't have to put it somewhere else, many take it with them into the apartment. In order to save as much space as possible when stowing away, a bicycle wall mount is suitable. You can easily get the brackets in a hardware store or order them on the Internet. Every MTB rider who lives in the city and has no bicycle parking space will be happy about this MTB gift.
Hipbags for mountain biking: The must-have for bikers
Backpacks when biking were yesterday. Hip bags are a must-have when biking and literally keep your back free. This is exactly why they are so popular with bikers. They offer less storage space than backpacks. Nevertheless, the most important things like the mobile phone, keys, hydration bladder, tools or a pump have space in it. Mountainbike Magazin recently conducted a hip bag test. You can find the test results and recommendations here. There is definitely the right hip bag for an MTB biker for the next birthday.
