With the end of 2020 rapidly approaching here is my gift guide to help with some unique ideas for the endurance athlete in your life. Aside from a vaccine these are gifts that can really make life better.
AXIO Centripetal 360 – One of the most interesting products that we have ever reviewed. This is a ring with a handle in the middle. The ring has a weighted ball inside that can roll freely inside the ring. While holding the handle in the middle the intent is to keep the ball spinning through the ring. This physical effort creates some muscular flex in arms, shoulders, and even the core. This is a physical therapy and training tool. Great to do on a daily basis to wake up muscles. It is especially effective when the goal is trying to strengthen arm muscles in certain positions. The challenge is to keep the ball spinning while doing almost anything. Check out this amazing toy for just $99.95 https://axiotraining.com/collections/products
HANGTIME Super grip smartphone harness- This is a great way to keep your phone attached on your next adventure. The Hangtime has a lanyard with a clip and the protective web stretches around all 4 corners of your device. This is perfect for a back pack, running vest, or ski jacket. The HANGTIME secures your phone if you are taking pictures, viewing maps or you slip and bump it out of your pocket. This is a great way to ensure that you keep your phone attached no matter what challenge you are facing. Take all the selfies you want without worrying about your device slipping out of your hand and falling off a ski lift or off the top of a mountain. For $25.00 this is a great value. Perfect stocking stuffer. https://www.hangtimegear.com
OWALA – This is the next level for insulated hydration. The bottle has smoothed edges with a flip top. This is functional masterpiece. The major difference is in the spout. Instead of just a straw when you flip the lid you have a straw and a spout. The straw is perfect for a sip. If you want a little more water then just pour. This is a serious game changer. Definitely my favorite insulated water bottle. It is leak proof, insulated and the button flip top. It is smooth and sleek with 24 hours of cold. It fits perfectly in my car door. With a huge selection of fun colors or my favorite all black. The 32 oz is $29.99 US https://owalalife.com/collections/all-products
SKULLCANDY Push Ultra- I am a big fan of SKULLCANDY. The bluetooth headphones are RAD! The skullcandy-push have fantastic sound. But they could fall out when sending it on my MTB. So the PUSH ULTRA are durable and made to stay securely in place. Great sound that can get wet and dirty and just rinse them off. The smooth case has TILE searchable technology so when they are misplaced sound the alarm. They still allow for ambient sound so stay safe. Worth the price $99.99 US https://www.skullcandy.com/shop/earbuds/bluetooth-earbuds/push-ultra
TIFOSI – TSALI Running optics- great high quality optics that are excellent for running. These light weight frames sit comfortably without uncomfortable pressure points on the nose or over the ears. TSALI comes with three lens choices. Quick and easy to change out the earpieces and snap out the nosepiece. These are a good value at $79.95 US check out all the great options here: https://www.tifosioptics.com/product/tsali-crystal-smoke-white/
