Amid all the World Champs fever and rainbow celebrations, we’ve taken a little time out to bring you this week’s edition of Sunday Trading – with deals on all the gear you need to (pretty much) stay warm and dry if you’re riding outside, or to keep fit pedalling inside if that floats your boat.

The products featured have been chosen because we know they’re good quality and are an excellent offer at the price we’ve included (at the time of writing). Our tech team have unrivalled expertise and years of experience testing new products, so you can trust our recommendations – and we also know what represents a good deal. Where we’ve reviewed the product we’ve included a link to it so you can read more.
With each product is a ‘Buy Now’ link. If you click on this then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. This doesn’t affect the amount you pay.
Up to 30% off Castelli clothing
The Castelli scorpion is usually a pretty good indication of quality. In fact, we’ve been on winter club runs where every rider was wearing at least one item from the brand.
Right now, you can get up to 30% off the kit at Evans Cycles. With winter weather already here, it seems, stocking up on some of the best performing wet weather gear is a very good idea.
Cycleops H2 Direct Drive Smart Trainer – was £1000 now £624.99
The H2 (Hammer, version 2) comes with an epic 20lb flywheel, allowing you to put out the big watts (up to 2,000 at 20mpg) whilst keeping noise below 66 decibels (at 20mph).
Power readings are accurate to +/- 2 per cent and you can mimic climbs as steep as 20 per cent.

The clocks change on Sunday, October 27. They go back an hour – so we will get an extra 60 minutes shut eye – but it means it’ll be dark earlier, too.
The Exposure Diablo is a “seeing” light, it puts out 1,500 lumens, though has several modes so you can turn it down.
Battery life is 24 hours on the lowest mode, 60 minutes on the highest, with an indicator light to show you when you’re in danger. You can mount the light on your helmet or handlebars, and it weighs in at 120g.
Garmin Edge 520 Cycle Computer – was £280, now £180
The Garmin Edge 520 is still a hot favourite among cyclists – it collects the basic data (speed, elevation, duration, calories) as well as training info via connected readers (power, cadence, heart rate).
There’s a few handy extras, such as V02 testing, FTP testing, and the ability to connect to Strava and see live segment tracking.
Navigation isn’t as sophisticated as the more expensive units, but you can download a route for way-marking, and the 520 is a nice and compact at 4.9 x 7.3cm.
Giant TCR from £1012.99 (save 22%) and Liv Langma from £849.99 (save 41%)
The Giant TCR is the big brand’s all round road racing machine – designed to be light whilst putting the rider into an agressive, aerodynamic position.
Technologies will vary depending upon spec level, but they’ll all come with an oversized bottom bracket and headset bearings to provide plenty of stiffness when you want to accelerate, plus slender seat stays to lend a little rear end compliance.
Raced by riders on the CCC Liv team, including Marianne Vos, the female specific Liv Langma is Giant’s sister brand’s all rounder.
Not only is the machine lightweight (the top end Liv Langma Advance Pro 0 comes in 60g lower than the UCI legal limit, at 6.86kg), it’s also got aero tubing and components to help save more watts – these impressive credentials earned it a place on the 2018 Editor’s Choice awards.
Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Ultegra 2019 Road Bike was £2700 now £1995
The Cannondale Synapse is a bike designed to offer comfort over long days in the saddle, without sacrificing race ready performance. The geometry is relatively upright, but the brand’s ingenious ‘SAVE’ micro-suspension buffers bumps in the road.
This model comes with clearance for tyres up to 32mm, mudguard mounts, hydraulic disc brakes and a Shimano Ultegra groupset.
At time of writing, there’s models from a size 51cm to 58cm.
