Best of the January sales: Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset for £247.99
Shimano are big proponents of ‘trickle down technology’. Basically, employing the same technology found on their more expensive units but at a lower price point.
These Ultegra wheels benefit from their bigger siblings, the Dura-Ace models. This is most prominent in the hubs, which are even easier to tighten and remove play from.
The wheels are super versatile, too. For example, the rear is 8, 9, 10 and 11 speed compatible.
Best of the January sales: Shimano 105 5800 SPD-SL Pedals for £59.97
Knowing that your feet are firm and secure can boost confidence on the bike massively.

Best of the January sales: Pair Vittoria Diamante road tyres for £29.99
Running good rubber on your bike can totally change how much you enjoy riding.

These tyres come with a massive 220tpi Nylon casing. As a general rule, the higher the weave number, the better quality the tyre tends to be.
They’re designed to be super slick, and as a result, fast. This means they could be the perfect weapon hidden away for those summer months.
