Seven of the best cycling deals from the holiday sales, including half price Rapha

We've scoured the internet for the best deals from the holiday sales

The holiday season is drawing to a close… let the holiday sales begin! The time immediately following Christmas can be a veritable bargain bonanza and we’ve brought you the best offerings on a range of products from jackets, wheels, shoes and more.

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.

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.

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.
