2020 Christmas Gift Ideas for Zwifters

2020 Christmas Gift Ideas for Zwifters

There’s nothing better than Zwifty goodness under the Christmas tree! Here’s a list of things we have and love, or don’t have but want real bad (hint, hint Eric Schlange)! Send this list to your secret Santa then just sit back and wait! (is Secret Santa a thing in 2020?)

Shop Local

More now than ever before we need to support our local businesses! Call your LBS and ask them if they carry or can order any of the items on this list! Take care of your community first by keeping your money local!

Small Pain Cave Upgrades

Affordable gadgets to improve your Zwift setup

WiFi Smart
Power Strip

Plugging your trainer and fan into this baby means you can turn everything on from your phone while you’re running into your paincave last minute!

Another
Fan

You can never have too many fans! Here’s why >

Riser
Block

Neck hurting because your screen is too high? Quick fix here!

JBL Bluetooth
Speaker

We’re big fans of a speaker that can fit in our bidon cage! And this sweet speaker is waterproof, or better yet: sweatproof!

Universal Phone
Adapter

I’ve been using this guy for years so that I can easily keep the Zwift Companion App running right under my nose!

Garmin
Mount

If you buy the phone adapter above you’ll want a mount for it too! They come in loads of colors!

Sweat
Net

Sweat is corrosive. Protect that beautiful bike of yours!

Wireless Keyboard
with Touchpad

You ride your bike indoors. You’re fancy. So be sure to get a fancy keyboard with touchpad!

Withings
Smart Scale

Perfect for those pre-race weigh-ins, even if auto-updating is currently broken on Zwift (throw us a bone, ZHQ!)

Wearables

Look good, even in your garage!

Heart Rate
Monitor

Eric prefers this one from Wahoo, but I prefer this sweet one on my arm! Choose wisely!

Sweatband
Set

Keep the extra sweat out of your eyes AND rock the 80s look!

Wireless Bluetooth
Earbuds

Use these to play a crowd cheering for you on Spotify over and over again as if you’re in a race IRL! We love the Jaybird Vistas, and they’re on sale now!

Big Pain Cave Upgrades

The only way through more lockdowns is in style and comfort! 

Adjustable Indoor
Cycling Desk

This desk with Zwifty orange accents is nearly identical to Wahoo’s offering, but much more affordable.

Big TV
Screen

What size screen is best? Whatever is bigger than what you have right now!

Direct Drive
Smart Trainer

Upgrade to a direct drive trainer for accuracy and road feel! It’s well worth the extra cash! Check out our recommendations, and our USA availability page.

Wahoo
Headwind

There are fans and then there are FANS! This one changes speed based on your heart rate or speed on Zwift!

Training Aids

Because we all need a little help these days!

Sweat
Towels

Buy a color other than what you use at home so you don’t mix them up with the guest towels! In case you’re ever allowed to have guests over again.

Caffeinated
Gum

Chew this before your ride; easier on the tummy than coffee!

Foam
Roller

Because the local masseuse might have theRona you’ll need to roll out your own muscles!

PR
Lotion

If Eric Schlange ever swore it would be on this! (Use discount code ZwiftInsider for 20% off.)

Decoration/Inspiration

A little something to cover that hole in the wall of your garage

Watopia Map
Poster

Easiest way to see where you’ve been and where you’re going!

Suffer
Poster

Suffering has never felt so good! Inspirational!

“Take the Risk or Lose
the Chance” Poster

With that kind of inspiration on your wall you’ll win all your races!

Ride On
Poster

You get a ride on, and you get a ride on, and you get a ride on!

About The Author

Monica Schlange

Monica wears many hats but the two most important to her are: Mom of two teens, and Wife to Zwift Insider editor Eric. A casual cyclist, her resolve is stronger than her legs, which still gets her pretty far! She enjoys trying new things on Zwift that others find intimidating so she can write about the experience and inspire others to push themselves as well.

You have some nice recommendations for newer riders. Many of us have been on Zwift for years so we have our setups dialed. It would be fun if the Zwift clothing store was also featured. Actually having some serious nice Zwift kits, socks, vest, gloves etc. would be awesome.

Saw these Alpe and Ven-Top stickers on Etsy the other night – looks like a good gift for Zwifters https://www.etsy.com/listing/902207670/zwift-cycling-stickers-alpe-du-zwift-an
