STOCKING FILLERS: Small Parts, Ideal for Xmas!

Are you stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Are you on a bit of a tight budget? Are you a parent who has absolutely no clue what to buy for your kid who loves BMX this year? Then don’t worry, we’ve got you covered…

We’ve put together a few of our favourite items which won’t necessarily break the bank can easily be slipped into your Xmas stocking.

These products are handy as hell and will guarantee good times on the big day.


1. Shadow Conspiracy – Invisa Lite Pro Insoles

The Shadow Conspiracy just came out with the new ‘Invisa Lite’ Pro Insoles which are an absolute life-saver if you’re constantly suffering from sore feet due to hard landings. Coming in at around £20, these are an ideal gift for any BMX rider for sure! Check the video above for all the info.


2. Tall Order – Pocket Socket Tool


Tall Order BMX just dropped this new handy tool called the ‘Pocket Socket’ which saves you carrying a full size socket, 6mm and 8mm allen key around with you everywhere. Genius design, £15.

It’ll save weight and room in your bag and comes in handy whenever you need to whip a wheel off or tighten pretty much anything on your bike. The perfect stocking filler!

3. Pedals

Plastic pedals are always a safe bet. They’re small enough to fit in a stocking, not too costly (from £12) and there’s a huge range of options which come in different sizes, shapes, colours and each have their own unique features and stylings.

We’ve chosen these rad looking Odyssey Twisted PC pedals which are a tried and tested favourite in a wacky ‘tie dye’ colour option.

4. Villa Road iPhone Case


I own one of these and can certainly say that this Villa Road case has made filming BMX on my iPhone a shit load easier.

It’s such a handy device – just prop it up with the included allen key to get your perfect shot. It also doubles as a filming handle and if you need a 6mm then you’ve always got one with you! Clever buggers. £15.99.

Note: this fits iPhone 6/6s only. For something more universal, check out the alternative below.


5. Joby GripTight POV Kit


We were sent one of these to review recently and were very impressed with it.

It not only offers a filming handle that doubles as a stand, it also has a remote control record button. This is awesome for self-filming clips and makes your phone feel more like a video camera when it’s attached to the handle. Very useful indeed!

Fits all phones, £40.


6. Grips

Grips are the most perishable item on a BMX so these are always welcome – the perfect stocking filler. They’re cheap (from £7) and come in every colour / blend imaginable, so you can easily match colours of other parts – yes, even those tie dye pedals at number 3…
