Gore C5 1985 Shakedry jacket was £250, now £175
The Gore-Tex Shakedry technology is some of the most advanced rain resistant materials on the market, and the jacket we’ve been using has never wetted out on us. It dries with a simple shake – it really has to be used to be believed.
You can get a better idea of the product by reading our review of one of Gore’s other jackets.
Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL T Tubular wheelset was £1759, now £729.99
This is one of the finest deals we’ve seen this festive period, with the carbon fibre Mavic Ksyrium Pro wheels on a whopping discount.
Their light weight makes them a perfect climbing wheelset, and their 25mm depth means they’re not slow to accelerate. However, bear in mind that they’re tubular, so they’re a more specific purchase, but if you still use tubs you’re in luck!
POC Octal helmet was £180, now £130
The POC Octal is one of the better looking bike helmets out there, and has become recognisable thanks to the head’s off the EF Education First team. It’s a climber’s helmet really, with the big vents helping to air your head whilst also keeping the weight down.
Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL C wheelset was £1579, now £1184.25
This is the clincher version of the wheels above, and will probably appeal to more riders. They’re still discounted by 25%, which is nothing to be sniffed at.
The disc brake rotors are attached via six bolts, and the 25mm carbon rim is light, making them the perfect climbing wheels.
Sidi Shot shoes were £349, now £199
Read more: Sidi shot review
The Sidi Shot shoes use the brand’s Techno 3 closing system to provide a symmetrical closure across the top of the feet to avoid hot spots. The soles are typically Sidi: very stiff and performance orientated, and they’ve been ridden to success by Chris Froome countless times.
Rapha Pro Team Aero long sleeve jersey was £150, now £75
The Rapha Pro Team Aero jersey is one of the finest seasonal long sleeve jerseys on the market. It’s thin, so it’s not for freezing cold days but it’s comfortable, with a good cut. Even better, now it’s half price.
Continental GP5000 tyres (pair) with tubes were £120, now £92
Read more: Continental GP5000 tyre review
The brand new GP5000 tyres have hit the ground running, already being discounted at Merlin Cycles. We’ve reviewed them already and found that Conti had managed to make the best better, offering the best of both puncture protection and speed.
In this deal you get two tyres and a set of inner tubes too. Bargain!
That’s all the deals for now, be sure to check back in the future for more great offers!
