Components

Shimano 105 R7000 11-speed rim brake groupset

Was £599.99, now £299.99 – save 50%

Shimano 105 is the go-to groupset for riders who want the key features of Dura-Ace and Ultegra, but at a more real-world price. 

Since the pandemic caused a component drought, meaningful discounts on groupsets have been hard to come by. This is the cheapest 105 groupset we've seen in literally years. They'll go quickly, so don't hang about. 

Continental GP5000 clincher tyre twin pack

Was £119.98, now £77.99 – save 35%

From the most popular cycling tyre dynasty of all time, Continental’s GP5000 is pretty much the ideal all-around tyre doing that tough task of perfectly mixing puncture protection, rolling resistance, grip and durability in a product that can genuinely be used 365 days a year. ProBikeKit is currently offering almost £50 off a twin pack of tyres, with 23 and 25mm options.

Note these are the clincher version, not their tubeless siblings.

Zipp 303 S Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake Wheelset

Was £1,031.00, Now £799.99 – Save 22%

These versatile wheels from fancy-pants brand Zipp are suitable for everything from road and cyclocross to gravel. With 45mm deep rims, they’re also extremely wide, a facet that allows them to accommodate tyres up to 50mm in width.

Using the latest hookless rim desisgn, they’re also relatively lightweight at a claimed 1,530g for the pair. Generally making products of bombproof quality, Zipp also offers a lifetime warranty.

Shimano 105 R7000 carbon road pedals

Was £124.99, Now £77.99 – save 38%

Many of the products you’ll find on this list are luxuries, but pedals are a necessity, and these are good pedals with a good saving.

We don’t need to sell the benefits of Shimano pedals, if you use SPL-SL then you know what you’re getting in terms of setup and feel, the only bit of info you might need is the 105s weigh a claimed 285g for a pair.

Garmin Vector 3 dual-sided power meter pedals

Was £789.99, Now £449.99 – save 43%

In our five-star review of the Garmin Vector 3, we described it as ‘one of the best power meters we’ve ever tested’. Since then Garmin has revamped its power meter range as Rally, compatible with Shimano cleats, but to benefit from the resulting discount here all you’ll need to do is get used to Look Keo cleats.

That’s a massive £340 saving because of a rebrand, not because the technology is out of date. Dream.

Hunt wheels

Up to 20% off

For fans of Really Good Wheels – and Really Loud Freehubs – Hunt are offering up to 20% off a number of road, gravel and mountain bike wheelsets.

The selection includes a mixture of top-end and more accessibly priced wheels, with the road offerings the 35 Carbon Aero Disc, 4 Season Disc, Alloy SL Disc and 50 Carbon Aero Disc SL and the gravel the 42 Limitless Gravel Aero(!) and 4 Season Gravel X-Wide.

Don’t tell your mates about this one before you’ve sealed the deal because you don’t get deals on Hunt wheels very often and there’s limited stock for all the discounted products.

Hunt is also including a free gift with purchases and you can save an extra £30 by buying more than one wheelset using code BLACKFRIDAY30.

Elite Drive Mixed Depth wheelset


Was $1,198, Now $970 - save 19%

Who doesn't love a discounted carbon wheelset, right? The Mixed Depth wheelset is designed to be both practical and aero, with a shallower front rim for better stability in windy conditions, and a deeper rear rim for the aerodynamic performance. 

Elite are currently offering a range of discounts across all of their wheels, including $219 off when you spend over $1,099, or buy one wheelset and get 40% off the second. 

This may be one more inviting to rider's outside of the UK, as UK shipping may incur import fees. 

Selle Italia Diva gel flow saddle


Was £99.99, Now £29.99 - save 70%

Available in three different finishes, the Diva gel flow by Selle Italia is womens-specific saddle, aimed at keeping you comfortable on those long rides. It utilises differentiated-thickness padding and gel inserts, as well as a cut-out to relieve pressure. 

The saddle received high praise in our recent review, calling it 'comfortable, supportive, and priced well.'

Bikes

Rondo HVRT CF1 Disc road bike

Was £5,499, Now £3,575 – (save 35%)

£2,000 off a capable aero bike is a good deal but it’s only available in size medium meaning there are probably only a few left, so be quick.

When we reviewed the Rondo HVRT Zero back in 2019 it got a big five stars. The HVRT CF1 is one tier down, so has most of the best things of that bike too including variable geometry via the fork to change the handling characteristics to suit you.

It’ll also fit tyres as wide as 650×47mm, so could be your gravel bike too.

Vitus ZX-1 EVO CR eTap AXS road bike

Was £3,899.99, Now £2,534.99 – save 35%

Yes it’s a bike that is not only in stock but at a reduced price. Madness. Vitus’s carbon fibre racing bike, built with SRAM’s Rival eTap AXS wireless groupset, is an attractive option at its RRP, so with over a grand knocked off, it’s at least food for thought.

It’s not just electronic shifting either, it’s a proper modern road bike with integrated cables, disc brakes and tubeless-ready tyres. And it’s the 2022 model.

 

Rondo RUUT AL 2 disc gravel bike 2022

Was £1,799, Now £1,169 - save 35%

This RUUT AL is Rondo’s answer to both gravel and bike-packing and is currently at a tasty 25% off. It is fitted with 40mm WTB tyres, but has clearance for up to 45mm, and the RUUT AL also has multiple bottle cages and luggage mounts.

The fork features Rondo’s TWINTIP technology, which the brand says provides adjustable head tube angles for a more personalised experience. It's a flip-chip, folks.

Cannondale Topstone 4 gravel bike 2021

Was £1,100, Now £799 - save 27%

With the weather turning and gravel season already in full swing, this aluminium Cannondale Topstone is at a nicely discounted price for anyone looking to turn their hand to some trickier terrain.

Equipped with 1× gearing, a clutch rear derailleur and 37mm tyres, this Topstone deal is now only available in size large and extra large so don’t hang around if you want a piece of the action.

Titus Goldrush Campagnolo Ekar titanium gravel bike

Was £3,099.99, Now £2324.99 – save 25%

Many of us are lusting after titanium bikes these days, but price is often a huge barrier. Enter Planet X and the Titus Goldrush. Already at a comparatively cheap price, the bike is currently at 25% off.

The Goldrush features Campagnolo’s 13-speed Ekar gravel groupset and up to 48mm tyre clearance. With adjustable dropouts for different wheel sizes and handling adjustments, this offering from Planet X could be the answer to your titanium reveries.

Clothing

Dhb R2.0 Road Helmet


Was £50.00, Now £20.00 - Save 60%

Need a decent road helmet and don’t want to spend too much money? Even at full price, we thought this model from Dhb was a good bet. Effortlessly passing for a more expensive product, it’s subject to the same safety standards as more expensive models too.

The R2.0 is well-finished and reasonably ventilated, it comes in two sizes and a ton of colours. All of them are also now on sale, with 50% off. 

Fizik R5 Tempo Overcurve road shoes

Was £160, now £95 – save up to 41%

An impressive set of shoes that are suited to long days in the saddle, the Fizik R5 Tempo Overcurve shoes combine a single Boa dial and velcro strap for a secured fit, with a staggered collar that follows the misalignment of the ankle for a truer fit.

The nylon sole isn’t the stiffest but will ensure comfort and sufficient pedal efficiency. Available in five colours and in half sizes from EU36 through to EU48.

GripGrab Cloudburst Waterproof Mid-season gloves

Was £71.95, Now £25.18 – save 65%

Yes that is 65% off. GripGrab's accessories are the ultimate solution to cold and wet hands and feet and the Cloudburst gloves are fully waterproof and windproof while still being breathable and touchscreen-compatible.

They’re also designed to not be too bulky like many cold-weather cycling gloves, to ensure the rider can still feel their handlebars, brakes and shifters. Plus it’s a bargain.

Castelli Alpha RoS 2 jacket

Was £320, Now from £160 – save 50%

Castelli is the master of layering, the iconic Gabba RoS being the prime example. As part of that same RoS range (Rain or Shine), the Alpha is a jacket that will see you through to summer with neither a shiver nor an over-stuffed pocket to worry about.

Gore-Tex Infinium technology pairs with Castelli’s performance-minded design to create a jacket that will keep you warm – but not too warm – and dry in the tougher seasons, so you won’t need to resort to buying a turbo trainer.

Dhb Classic bib shorts

Was £60, Now £30 – save 50%

Thirty British pounds for a pair of bibs is fantastic value given what most good ones go for these days. Dhb’s Classic bib shorts are already prized for their good value so this half price offer is hard to resist.

Meant for rides up to three hours, and capable of maintain their comfort levels for more depending on the level of support you require, they do what you need bib shorts to do, and what more could you want? 

They’re available in black or navy – coloured bibs are very trendy right now – and in sizes from XS to XXL.

MAAP Women's ALT_road thermal vest

Was £170, Now £102 – save 40%

MAAP are currently offering up to 30% off a wide range of kit, and it says that the ALT range is aimed at blurring the lines between cycling kit and casual clothes.

S-Works Recon lace gravel shoes

Was £300, Now £150 - save 50%

With an impressive 50% off, Specialized’s Recon gravel shoes are a very timely deal.

The shoes’ carbon sole plates are aimed at maximising performance, whilst the upper is said to be robust against the rough and tumble of gravel riding. The shoes’ laces offer more points of adjustment, as well as extra style points too.

The shoes are available in khaki green, black and, for the bold amongst you, white. They take a standard MTB 2-bolt cleat.

Le Col Women's sport bib tights II

Was £175, Now £87.10 - save 50%

Cold-weather riding is here, and these Sport Bib Tights II by Le Col could be just the ticket to keep you warm this season. The tights feature a fleece lining with silicone leg grippers, and Le Col say they are 'perfect for powering through base miles in the winter'.

SiS Go Isotonic energy gel 30 pack

Was £48, now £24 – save 50%

It’s always worth stockpiling gels. You’ll need them all year round and with the fact that they have such a long expiration date, you can just leave them at the back of the cupboard until such time you need them.

This deal means you’re paying just 80p per gel which is quite the steal considering they are usually £1.50 sold individually.

Cateye Ampp 500 and Rapid Mini light set

Was £64.99, Now £39.99 – save 25%

Buying Cateye’s capable Ampp 500 and Rapid Mini light set at RRP already gives you a saving over buying the pair separately, so knock off another 25% and you’re in the money. And it’s lights season, so it’s perfect timing.

Up front you’ll have 500 lumens coming from a wide lens for plenty of visibility to ride safely in the dark and at the rear you’ll have 25 lumens, more than enough to be seen by other road users.

Garmin Edge 1030 Plus GPS computer

Was £519.99, Now £299.99 – save 42%

The Garmin Edge 1030 Plus is another that had ‘price’ under its list of negatives in our review, so a nice saving certainly doesn’t do any harm. Now the Edge 1040 Solar has hit the market, the 1030 is getting some tasty discounts.

It’s easy to use, even in winter, with a big screen to make maps and data screens easily visible, and it has a heck of a lot of Garmin’s clever features as well as a battery that lasts up to 24 hours.

    Scicon Aerotech Evolution X TSA bike travel case

    Was £849, Now £489.99 – save 42%

    ‘One of the best boxes out there’ is how our reviewer described this Scicon travel case, with one of the only downsides its price. Shave a massive £359 off that price and you’ve got yourself a big time saving.

    It's good quality and strong, it’s fairly lightweight and it’s easy to manouevre. The Aerotech even has two TSA locks to keep it secure when it’s out of sight or transported to the wrong destination.

    Proviz cycling accesories


        Up to 50% off all products

        Great for the darker nights, Proviz are probably most well-known for their Reflect360 cycling jacket. With up to 50% off all products worldwide from 10th to 28th November, this deal is great for anyone looking to kit out their winter wardrobe. 

        Both their REFLECT360 and LED360 are aimed at safety and road visibility, and were featured as one of the go-to brands in our best reflective and hi-vis jackets for winter riding.

        Rawvelo organic energy gels 18 pack


        Was £32.39, Now £22.67 - save 30%

        Rawvelo make big claims that, unlike some other products on the market, these organic energy gels are easy on the digestive system whilst also being good for the planet. Naturally, they are also 100% vegan and use coconut sugar, fruit juice and brown rice syrup as sweeteners. 

        Given the high quality ingredients, it's unsurprising that these gels typically fall on the more expensive side but they are currently available at 30% and you can get an extra 10% off by signing up to their database.

        LifeLine Pro trainer table


        Was £149.99, Now £75 - save 49%

        Whiling away long hours on the turbo can inevitably incur a chaotic tangle of cables and, if you aren't lucky enough to have a dedicated screen set up, a laptop balanced precariously nearby. If this sounds like you, the LifeLine Pro trainer table could ease your woes.

        With an inbuilt universal socket and 2 USB sockets on the table top, a 3m extension cable connects the table to your wall socket. It also features non-slip matting and a bottle holder. 

        The desk height is adjustable up to 1.27m and caster wheels allow the table to be easily moved, and then locked with a foot-brake.
