The best Black Friday deals for cyclists

Black Friday 2015 is coming! With Chain Reaction offering different deals each week up to Black Friday and Evans Cycles launching its offers this week, we've updated our roundup of some of the best deals.

For those who don't know, Black Friday is an American tradition and is the first Friday after Thanksgiving (this year, that's November 27).

It's regarded as the start of the Christmas shopping season with many retailers offering big discounts and special offers.

The good news is that this has spread across the pond and is now being adopted by British retailers too. We will be updating this page as more deals emerge, so stay tuned...


Wiggle is offering a different deal every day up until Black Friday. Today's deal is:

Elite Crono Hydro-Mag ElastoGel Trainer - £139.99 from £279.99


Just in time for the cold weather to make a session on the turbo a much more attractive proposition, Wiggle is offering 50% off this model which mixes fluid and magnetic resistance units for a realistic ride feel and works with third party software such as Zwift and TrainerRoad.

Evans Cycles

Not only does Evans Cycles have a pretty good "Spend & Save" offer (spend £60, get a £10 voucher; spend £100, get a £20 voucher) but it's also got some half-decent deals too.

Rapha Team Sky Training Jersey - £59.99 from £84.99


With Rapha's partnership with Team Sky ending at the end of 2016, this is the penultimate opportunity to grab a souvenir of a beautiful - and multi-Tour winning - relationship before they go their separate ways.

Garmin Edge 25 Cadence Bundle - £129.99 from £169.99


Garmin's smallest cycling GPS, launched earlier this year, comes packaged with a cadence sensor and lets you download your activities to Garmin Connect for later analysis.

Upgrade your ride to the latest version of Shimano's excellent Ultegra groupset, including brakes, at a bargain price. Price is for compact 50/34 only.

Scott Addict Team Issue 2015 - £3399.99 from £5699.00


The bike ridden in multiple grand tours in 2015 by IAM Cycling - and the same except for the colour scheme as Orica-GreenEdge's steeds - comes complete with Dura-Ace mechanicals and Syncros RL1.1 carbon clincher wheels.
