Guest Gift Guide: Rebecca Rusch

Rebecca Rusch dubbed herself The Queen of Pain via her twitter account, and it’s tough to wonder why–she is a 6x World Champion, and 2x Leadville 100 Winner and course record holder.

Welcome to the Guest Editions for the Holiday Gift Guide. We’ve asked some of our industry and athlete friends to compile their ideal gift lists. The catch was that they were only allowed to choose one product from the company they work for (or are sponsored by).

A constantly updated list of our Guest Gift Guiders can be found at:

By: Rebecca Rusch

Buff Seamless Headband: $13

This cycling specific Buff is better than the original full length ones because it's specifically designed to fit under a bike helmet. It's perfect for hot, cold and in between weather to keep sweat (and mud) out, or your ears warm, depending on the weather.

Arriva Shuffle wireless headphones: $25

This headphone set up holds an iPod shuffle and lets you train without the hassles of wires. It wraps around the back of your head and tucks right at the base of a cycling helmet. It's super sleek, simple and works great for cycling and running.

Ibex Balance Sports Bra: $55

My dream come true! Finally, a wool sports bra! This bra has no seams so you can barely feel it, and has all the warm-when-wet benefits of wool. This is going to be my new go to top for cycling and Nordic skiing.

Prana Nadia Dress : $70

Dress it up, dress it down. Even though I'm an athlete, I don't want to look like a dirt-bag all the time. You can wad it up in your luggage and still be ready for anything. It's ultra comfy and looks good on everyone! Get one for your girlfriend!

$250 (Two Things)
Club Ride Apparel Bandara Women's Riding top: $100

No one wants to nor should they wear lycra ALL the time. These new shirts are technical, but look good on and off the bike. Pearl snaps, vented back, great colors and details. (

World Bicycle Relief Bike: $134

A small amount to change a life. These bikes provide access to education and dreams. From now until December 31st, every dollar donated will be matched. Double your money and change a life!

Dynafit TLT Vertical ST Alpine Touring Binding : $480

Yeah, I'm a cyclist, but I live in snow country and my off-season training consists of lots of hiking uphill and sliding down. I've been dreaming about these bindings. They are the bar by which everything else is measured. Please, please, please Santa!

Dynafit ZZero4 U TF Women's AT ski boot: $650

While you're at it, Santa, why not just make it a package deal?
