The Headset Press Christmas List

Our picks for 2014

Most of us hope for something cycling related this Christmas, our loved ones usually don't know what to buy us and we end up with the Brut 33 soap and talc set. This year we are here to help you, to help them. Yes we even have socks to choose. So picks are UK, some are US, some are pricey, some are cheap and we want all of them ourselves. So get some mulled wine and a mince pie and take a look at our selection, it's the done thing. Ok you might not have enough time to order some of this stuff, the way we see it, you can return the Brut 33 set and get these rad things after! Sorted.

Rapha Cross Shoe


Cyclocross racers demand a lot from their footwear – traction for scrambling up steep slopes, stiffness for short and sharp accelerations, and the durability to withstand post-race hose downs. The Rapha Cross Shoe, produced in collaboration with Giro of California, has been constructed with these challenges in mind. We say, wear it for everything and everywhere.

Chapeau! Crank Coffee.


A rich, sweet and balanced blend of Brazil Monte Cristo & Colombia Las Acacia coffee beans. The crank is an essential part of any bike – it works for everyman/woman. So we thought naming this crowd-pleasing blend “CRANK” was appropriate as it is a great all-rounder with everything you need. It’s sweet, rich and has a distinct milk chocolate note and syrupy mouth feel. Plus it’s roasted a little darker for a nice kick. Perfect for a morning cafetiere. We say, It’s coffee, you will need it.

Trek Émonda

If you need to ask..

Every detail of the Émonda line, from frame design to each component choice on every model, serves the same audacious goal: to create the lightest line of production road bikes ever offered. The entire Émonda line is unbelievably light, with sensational ride-tuned balance and handling that elevate Trek ride performance to a whole new level. We say, can I have two?
