Compatible with Apple iPhone models 5 and above, Siri is back as your trusty car companion providing eyes-free access to a range of functions. Built in Bluetooth means you can keep your hands firmly on the wheel whilst actioning requests, whilst a savvy LCD 6.2 inch screen is fast and responsive to the touch for stationary use.

Elite Magnetic Force Trainer Pack

Sometimes, getting outside in the cold, dark winter is just too grim. If it’s icy, it can even be dangerous. A turbo trainer means they can keep riding their own bike without having to go outside! This Elite Magnetic Force has adjustable resistance, so it’s great for all kinds of riders and all kinds of workouts. If you’re not quite sure what a turbo trainer is, take a look at our guide.

Why we love it: This pack comes with a front wheel riser block to keep the bike level, a water bottle to keep them hydrated and a training DVD so they’ve got something to watch! It’s just about everything they need to keep going all winter.

For the been-there, done-that cyclist…

Garmin Edge Touring Special Edition GPS Cycle Computer with Mount & Case

The Garmin Edge Touring is a GPS bike computer. That means it’ll track their position (for them to look at afterwards) and can measure things like speed and distance without needing to add anything else to the bike. You can also use the Edge Touring like a bicycle sat nav, following routes you’ve made and finding local points of interest.

Why we love it: As well as following routes you’ve made, the Edge Touring can even suggest new routes to you based on how far you want to go – it’s our favourite feature, and really helps out if you’ve been doing the same loop over and over!

For the big kid…

For the bigger kids we’ve introduced the Petronas remote control car, just in time for Christmas! This highly detailed 1:14 scale remote controlled car is a model of the Mercedes AMG team F1 W05 Hybrid car that was driven by Lewis Hamilton in the 2014 race season.

Why we love it: Packed with authentic features like those found on the original car, it even has the distinctive aerodynamic chassis that awarded Mercedes first place in the World Constructors’ Championship. It’s the little details like this which are sure to make a big kid beam on Christmas morning!
