For Her Eyes Only

Sunglasses aren’t just for looking glamorous. When out riding, our eyes are our biggest asset. We use them to differentiate potholes from shadows and help us pick out glass and other debris on the path. Good lenses protect our eyes from road debris and in the event of a crash. Higher Gear is now carrying frames designed for women and narrower faces. Come on in and try on the Tifosi Wisps – or any of the new Tifosi’s we have in – for size.

Nutcase Bike Bicycle Cycling Helmet Metroride Metro Ride urban Higher Gear WilmetteFor the Mom With a Good Head on Her Shoulders

Mom is pretty smart smart. She knows you should always wear a helmet when you’re on your bike. And she knows she should also protect her own head – even if she wants to add a little style to her own helmet. Nutcase helmets have always let mom’s personality come through with their whimsical helmets. Now, Higher Gear is also offering the Nutcase Metroride Helmet. Like the original Nutcase, but lighter weight and with more ventilation.

For the Classy Lady

When an ordinary bike just won’t do, the sweeping curved frame of the Linus Dutchi 3 adds a touch of class, while the upright posture makes it comfortable for riding around town. Special touches include genuine leather grips and the mid-century alloy bell. The Linus alloy rear rack makes this classic beauty perfect for trips to the farmers market. And no Dutchi is complete without the coordinating Lil’ Dutchi.
