Diadora Vortex Pro cycling shoes were £264.99, now £132.49
Diadora’s top-notch carbon soles have a very large ventilation area built in under the midsole, so your feet will stay cooler on the hottest days. It’s waterproof too, so if the rain starts your feet should say a bit drier. On top, there are two Boa dials for fine adjustment and an upper made of microfiber and mesh. Chain Reaction has a broad range of sizes and colours available.
Shimano 105 5800 pedals were £109.99, now £59.99
They might not satisfy the weight weenie, with an additional 25g or so over Ultegra pedals and 40g over Dura-Ace, but for the rest of us, 105 pedals provide pretty much the same carbon body and bearing quality as their more expensive cousins. At Chain Reaction Cycle’s £60 discounted price, 105 pedals are a lot cheaper though.

Continental Grand Prix Force II tyre was £47.95, now £24.99
