Does your athlete enjoy open water swimming? Live Grit has some of the finest wetsuits available. Choose from Blueseventy and Orca brands for men or women. The neoprene suits are built for comfort and a perfect fit, like a second skin, making them excellent for downhill swimming. Choose a full wetsuit or pick up some core shorts for the coolest of stocking stuffers.

Wireless Kits

Serious cyclists can track speed, distance, heart rate, cadence, and a lot more with one of these wireless kits. They link to any smartphone through an app and data is recorded and stored for future reference. Choose from the Cateye brand Strada Smart Triple Wireless Kit, Pedrone Smart Double Wireless Kit, Strada Digital Double Wireless, and other great kits and accessories.

Sugoi Cold Weather Gear

A little winter weather won’t even slow them down when they’re wearing Sugoi cold weather gear. Each product is designed for ultimate comfort and wicking power. Suit up your favorite outdoor runner or cyclist with gloves, a headwarmer, a beanie, or some armwarmers so they can brave the cold while they do what they do.

Cervelo Bikes

Each bike in the Cervelo line is carefully crafted to provide the most aerodynamic, comfortable ride possible.
