Gift Guide #1: It’s nearly that time already; the trees will be going up and the halls will soon be decked with boughs of holly. So it is also time for the PEZ Holiday Gift Guide and in #1 we kick off with offerings from Boyd Cycling, OROS, LEM, Zwift, Arundel, Nathan Sports, SockGuy, BioLite and Muc-Off. Not many shopping days to go!
Arundel Seat Bag
Pico, Medio and Gordo are our water resistant, extra durable range of Arundel seat bags. We make use of sonic welded seams and nylon fabric impregnated with thermoplastic polyurethane. Think frogman raft. The straps are also nylon and wider than usual, like seat belts in planes and cars. A wider strap means more Velcro area for better security. The materials we chose cost more but in exchange, you have a seat bag that should last a good long time. All three are slightly roomier than our time proven corresponding sized Uno, Dual and Tubi.
• 33 cubic in, 5 x 3¾ x 2 in
• Sonic welded seams
• Wide 1 ½ in nylon strap with extra velcro
• Fits an MTB tube or two 700c gravel tubes, plus gas, filler, etc.

SOLARCORE for an unparalleled insulation in just 2mm, that maintains breathability, flexibility and warmth, even under compression (unlike down or traditional insulations – it doesn’t rely on loft to retain heat).

LEM MotivAir | $225
The new, super lightweight LEM Motiv™Air features proprietary exoCarbon™ technology, an unmatched strength to weight ratio and improved oblique and rotational impact management. Built for road, XC and gravel cycling, the high-performance helmet weighs in at an impressive 220 grams (size M)! The innovative construction moves the interior structure to the exterior of the helmet. Using LEM’s proprietary strong, thin and light exoCarbon tech, they’ve created a full-carbon exterior shell with advanced high and low-energy impact management due to its dynamic construction of a hard outershell and internal low-density EPS foam. This keeps weight down, increases the strength to weight ratio and maximizes vents for cooling without compromising integrity.
