Moji 360 Mini Massager
After a long day in the saddle, there’s nothing I’d like more than a massage. Enter the Moji 360 Mini Massager.

An adjustable clasp certifies a contoured fit to each individual hand and keeps things in place when relieving sore muscles in hard-to-reach areas. An ideal gift for those who need relaxation and recovery most: mountain bikers. MSRP: $29.95.
