Christmas Gift Guide 2013: 12 presents for cyclists

Scoshe Boombottle (£120/€149)

The Boombottle isn’t actually a bottle – it’s instead a wireless Bluetooth speaker that fits in a bike’s bottle holder. Wielding dual 40mm drivers and a subwoofer, it can produce a surprisingly beefy sound, and the built-in battery packs 10 hours of life per charge.
