Pirelli Zero Velo Tires
Being a wear and tear components of a bicycle, tires can last as little as two weeks to 6 months. Having good rubber is important if you want to go far and fast.
Here is a newly released Pirelli Zero clincher tyre for road bikes. If you ask yourself why Pirelli sounds familiar, that tire brand is the same one in Formula 1.
Boasting very good rolling resistance, puncture resistance, grip and low weight, I am sure your cycling husband would want to have a go on these.
If they are faster on this, they get home even faster! You can get them locally at T3 Bicycles Gears for $71. There are other models too, so you can check it out there!
It might be expensive bottle gift compared to the usual pro team labeled bidons, but this over here is a quality product. The problem with most bidons is they collect dirt internally. This is not healthy as you will end up drinking more than just your usual 100plus.
With abloc though, they are durable, last very long and have the anti-microbial technology to ensure your bottles are clean and prevent bacteria and germs from forming.
Personally, I have been using them for a year and have never used another bottle since. They come in different colours so pick one to match your boyfriend’s bicycle. Purchase these over at their website.
Knog PWR Commuter Front Light

Of course, you need to bring a cable, but that can easily be sorted out by bringing a compact one! It’s main job though is to provide front lighting at a maximum of 450 lumens.
