And it's not just the Velosamba that's on sale. The US Adidas site has plenty of other deals on cycling shoes and clothing, including jerseys and bib shorts.

While the UK site has less products on sale there are still a few bargains to be had on Adidas cycling gear, including a solid reduction on the popular Road Shoe, which brings them under £100.

Adidas The Gravel Cycling Shoes

Adidas' cycling range just keeps on continuing to expand, with two-bolt gravel cycling shoes being just the latest addition. The German brand is carving its own way, with an internal sock integrated into the design - not unlike some football boots - to help keep debris out of the shoes.

Adidas The Velosamba Vegan Cycling Shoes

In terms of the look and application, these are just the same as the standard Velosambas - stiff, robust, stylish and perfect for pedalling around town. The difference comes in the construction and the materials, which, as you may well have surmised, are free from any animal products and testing. You can check out our full review of the non-vegan Adidas Velosambas over here.

Adidas The Parley Road Shoe Boa

Adidas has added a micro-adjustable Boa dial for fastening up these sleek-y black road cycling shoes. A sock-like upper should keep things comfy on longer days in the saddle, and the fibre glass-reinforced nylon plate helps with pedalling efficiency. To finish these off, Adidas has turned its three-stripe design reflective.

Adidas The Road Cycling Shoe

Who got to review Adidas Road Shoes in the office was hotly contested, as everyone wanted a slice of the three stripe action. In the end it was our web editor (fair cop Gov), but while she liked them a lot, the price marked them down a couple of notches. This money saving deal therefore puts them right back up on the most list, with the only decision being what colour way to opt for?

Adidas The Padded Cycling Bib Shorts

Made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic and containing a minium of 40 per cent recycled materials, Adidas' bib short offering is a sustainable choice.

The main fabric of these shorts has added elasticity to provide a close, unrestrictive ride feel while pedalling. Chamois-wise, Adidas has specced a dual-density endurance pad that promises six hours of saddle comfort.

Adidas The Padded Cold.RDY Cycling Bib Tights

Ideal for the cold season, the Padded Cold.RDY Cycling Bib Tights use Adidas proprietary COLD.RDY fabric that boasts wind resistance and water repellence, as well as thermal properties.  

There are men's and women's fits available, which come with gender specific padded inserts, designed for long days in the saddle. 

We've not tested these personally, but looking at the images, I'd say they're more a relaxed than a pro race fit, especially in the lower leg department. There's mixed feedback on how realistic sizes are, so definitely check the size guide before you order. 

Currently there are sizes extra small to extra extra large available, but  you'll have to be happy with the classic black and white stripes.

Adidas The Cold.RDY Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey

The insulated Cold.RDY Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey could make the perfect inner to team with a more robust waterproof outer, or wear on it's own on dry milder days. Adidas say the jersey is made from a super soft fleece and uses it's own PRIMEGREEN fabric which is made from recycled fabrics. Practical details include four rear pockets and the offset zip to which prevents zips clashing when you layer it up. There's a men's and woman's options available, in what I would call performance fit, owing to it's close body hugging design. Sizes in both genders range from either XS to XL in the women's and S to XXL in the men's with availability in all. Where you are limited is in the colourways. The men's is a bold bright blue, while the women's is what I'm calling a salmon pink, which funnily enough seems more appealing in the sale than at full retail.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 


But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.


I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
