Christmas is just around the corner! And you know what that means? Lots of cycling-related gifts under the tree! To be sure you get just the right Zwift-enhancing gift we made you a list. Be sure to send a link to your loved ones, or to Gerald: that guy who picked your name for the gift exchange at work!
We’re all about supporting local businesses first. So get on down to your favorite LBS for the following: Fun Socks (tall if you’re a cyclist, short if you’re a triathlete), New Bidons (because let’s face it, the 48 old ones you currently have are pretty sketchy), a local kit (so you can look the part while live-streaming a race), and a new pair of gloves (Sweaty Zwifters wear gloves! Tell your friends!).
Small Pain Cave Upgrades
Affordable gadgets to improve your Zwift setup
This little baby lets you turn your trainer and fan(s) on from the comfort of your bike. You know what that means? You don’t have to start riding with your fan on when it’s -39° in your pain cave!
The Body+ scale automatically updates your Zwift weight, measures body fat accurately, and tells today’s weather. Also, it’s on sale right now. We love ours!
This guy is the size of a bidon but puts out incredible sound. And it’s waterproof so if you put it in your bidon cage you won’t have to worry about all that nasty sweat ruining the innards.
KOM Cycling has a great way to mount your phone to your bike so that you can easily use Zwift Companion. I even use it on IRL rides so I can easily see if my kids are trying to call me while I’m gone!
If you don’t have a place to mount KOM Cycling’s adapter they also have Garmin mounts in lots of cool colors. Don’t worry about what the Velominati say about being matchy-matchy.
Look good, feel good. It’s all good!
Show your indoor obsession to the world with Zwift’s just-released premium Pursuit kit. Other kits, socks, and casual clothes available as well.
Get two sets so you can still look like you’re crushing the 1980s while the other set is being washed.
Look ridiculously good while keeping your ZwiftPower races legit! (Wahoo’s Tickr fit is also popular.)
Big Pain Cave Upgrades
For the Zwifter who has (almost) everything
Zwifting on a small screen is no fun. Run your computer, phone, or tablet into a big screen for a more immersive experience!
Upgrade to direct drive for improved accuracy and road feel. You won’t regret it! The Saris H3 is a solid pick, but see our 2019 recommendations for a full list.
Mount these lights behind your Zwift screen and run the Hue Sync app on your desktop to sync the colors with your Zwift session. You’ll need the Hue Smart Hub plus lights to make the magic happen.
Shaped so it covers your whole body, plus it can automatically change speed based on heart rate or Zwift speed. Definitely the best indoor cycling fan available!
Because we all need a little help in Zwift races
Having trouble waking for that early morning race? Need the benefits of caffeine without the added laxative effects of coffee? We like Military Energy Gum for the taste and added boost.
Give the gift of less muscle burn: clinically proven lotion helps you train harder, go faster and recover quicker.
My hubby’s personal favorite, perfect for morning Zwift sessions. (Other flavors available too). Less than $1/bar shipped on Amazon!
Buy a color not used in your home to avoid confusing the good towels with the Zwifting ones.
A little something to spruce up the place

Sometimes we need a little reminder that suffering makes us stronger. Embrace it!
It’s an important message for bike racing, and all of life.
