Today is round two of Amazon’s Prime Day sale, running until the end Wednesday July 12.
It’s fair to say that the deals, in general, haven’t been as strong as previous years. That said, there’s still some significant discounts to interest cyclists, including deals on cycling clothing and shoes.
Amazon is notoriously full of dubious cycling kit from brands you’ve never heard of. But amongst the weird and the not so wonderful are some genuine bargains - particularly across the best bib shorts and the best cycling jerseys - from reputable brands such as Castelli, Pearl Izumi and Gore.
We’ve trawled through the deals to find the most attractive offerings, including some of the best cycling shoes from Fizik. And because this is about finding the best cycling clothes deals during Amazon Prime Day, we’ve extended our search to other retailers who are running sales or price reductions over the same period.
Remember, to access the best deals today, you’ll need an Amazon Prime account. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial, which will include this official two-day July sale.

The R5 Tempo road shoes in black feature the classic styling you'd expect from Fizik - and with a 32% saving it's a deal worthy of Amazon Prime Day!
Fizik has equipped the R5s with a single BOA dial and velcro strap to allow for a dialled in fit. The synthetic upper is designed to be durable and easy to clean and also is perforated for improved breathability. The Overcurve design is an asymmetrical construction that's designed to ergonomically conform to your foot shape.
Some of the better cycling clothing deals this Amazon Prime Day are to be found elsewhere - just like this Castelli Perfetto RoS jacket at Competitve Cyclist, which has an incredible 61% off retail.
The Perfetto RoS is a tried-and -tested jacket for inclement weather. This is the convertible version, with zip-off sleeves, which makes it even more versatile. Other features included taped seams to protect against the rain, three rear pockets for storage and reflective detailing.
Not all the best deals on cycling clothing this APD are found on Amazon - with this Sportful jacket a good example of that. It's available from Competitive Cyclist with 60% off the retail price.
As for the details, the Total Comfort jacket is designed for fall and winter riding and features an external shell made from waterproof Polartec NeoShell, an inner lining made from Polartec Alpha Direct for added warmth and breathability and also tail and cuffs treated with DWR for protection against the rain. It might be summer now, but this deal allows you to be winter ready for a fraction of the price.
The Amazon Prime Day deals on cycling clothing aren't always the strongest on offer and greater savings can be found elsewhere - take this Giordana FR-C Pro Lyte Jersey, which is available at Competitive Cyclist with as much 56% off retail.
It's a jersey designed for the summer riding in the warmest temperatures. It's made using a woven ceramic fabric that protects against harmful UV rays as well as keeping you cool - remarkably it's claimed weight is just 85 grams!
Castelli Perfetto Ros long sleeve jersey:
Was $239.99 now $176.40 at Amazon
While we're heading into the summer months now it's always worth considering your cycling wardrobe for fall and winter riding - and Castelli's Perfetto RoS long sleeve jersey is ideally equipped to deal with both. Using Gore-Tex Windstopper fabric to keep the elements at bay, it delivers the protection of jacket with the cut and comfort of jersey - making it a versatile piece of kit that can meet your cold weather racing and raining needs - when we reviewed the Perfetto RoS jersey we found it to be both waterproof and breathable.
Pearl Izumi Interval bib shorts:
Was $150.00 now $110.71 at Amazon
Pearl Izumi's Interval bib shorts are designed for high intensity and long-distance rides, featuring an Elite Escape 1:1 Chamois and laser cut legs with wide silicone grippers. Something to always look out for is the use of 'coldblack' fabrics, which reflect the sun's heat - rather than concentrate it, as other more basic black fabrics do.
Gore Wear C5 Men's Cycling Bib Shorts:
Was $120.00 now $70.00 at Amazon
The C5 bib shorts are well suited to warm weather riding thanks to their full mesh bib construction and lightweight, breathable fabric. However, they cleverly incorporate a panel of windstopper material on the front of the shorts to help keep wind chill at bay on those long descents and cooler mornings. The Advanced Road pad uses medium density foam that's plenty comfortable for medium length rides.
Even at full price the C5 bibs deliver plenty of value at money, but at this discount they're a genuine deal.
Gore Wear Men's C5 short sleeve jersey:
Was $100.00 now from $62.00 at Amazon
Like the C5 bib shorts, the matching jersey is a stylish yet practical piece of kit suited to every day rides. While not quite a race fit it's designed to fit tightly for improved aerodynamics and effective moisture management. It also benefits from a full length zipper and three rear pockets and a smaller zipper pocket for keys, coins and other valuables.
It's available here in a range of colors including navy, red and black - all featuring a distinctive graphic pattern on the sleeves and collar.
Gore Wear Men's C3 Trail shorts:
was $100.00 now from $39.84 at Amazon
The popularity of gravel riding has seen many road cyclists in need of a new wardrobe. Gravel clothing tends to be a little more relaxed and borrows designs from the mountain bike world, just like these trail shorts from Gore.
The C3 shorts are knee length and featured two cargo style pockets on each leg, with a zipper to make sure the contents stay put. They also benefit from an elasticated waist and breathable, lightweight material.
Castelli Cycling Sorpasso ROS bib tights:
was $209.99 now from $143.9 at Amazon
Another deal to get you ready for the colder months is this 31% saving on Castelli Sorpasso ROS bib tights. Constructed from Castelli's Nano Flex G3 fabric, these tights offer great warmth and are water-repellent too, helping keep you comfortable on long winter rides.
Castelli Anima 3 women's Jersey:
was $89.99 now from $39.97 at Competitive Cyclist
The Anima 3 jersey is classic and understated, which also makes it easy to match with bibs and gilet. However, despite the clean looks it has plenty of details you'd expect from a Castelli product - it features the Italian brand's ProSecco Strada Donna fabric for unrivaled breathability, a full length zipper and three generously sized read pockets for your ride spares and snacks. With as much as 56% off it's a genuinely good deal.
Castelli women's Transition Jacket:
was $209.99 now from $64.98
The Transition Jacket from Castelli is just that - a lightweight jacket designed for transitional seasons, when a long sleeve jersey isn't enough but a winter jacket is still too much. It uses GORE-TEX Infinium X-Mid material on the front and sleeves to protect against the wind but is still plenty breathable. Other features include three rear pockets and reflective details. If you like the melon/military green colorway you'll save an impressive 69% off retail.
Amazon Prime Day cycling clothing deals - UK
Cycling clothing deals are proving to be a little hit and miss on Amazon this Prime Day. Fortunately, there are plenty of bargains to be had elsewhere - just like this dhb women's merino wool base layer available at Wiggle with as much as 50% off retail.

Breathable, odour resistant and soft against the skin - what's not to like? This dhb merion shirt, made with 200gsm wool, is all those things, with flatlock seams for added comfort.
The C5 bib shorts are an entry level pair of bibs but have plenty going for them. The bibs straps are constructed from mesh to help keep you cool when needed but the shorts also incorporate a windstopper fabric on the front to prevent you from getting chilly on long descents. The pad uses a flat hem design for comfort and is best suited to short and medium length rides.
It's worth noting that the Gore C5 Bib Shorts are available on Amazon UK across a number of listings, and in this case, the Prim Day deals aren't actually the lowest - the saving of 19% here is a little better.

The Aeron gilet is available in black, orange and yellow and features a full length zip, reflective logos and a high collar to keep out the wind - and all in a lightweight design that can fit in your jersey pocket.
It might be Prime Day but some of the best cycling clothing deals are to be found elsewhere. Take these classic bib shorts from dhb.
