Super slippery and savagely fast.

Genesis were one of the early adopters of all terrain bikes, and the Datum really represents this experience. The carbon frame and fork, dressed in SRAM Rival 1x with hydraulic brakes and 38c tyres. Happy on or off road and coming in at £1,799.99, an £800 saving - it's a bargain.
Another £800 saving to be made, this time on the Shimano Ultegra equipped Merida Reacto carbon road bike comes with a Fulcrum Racing 700 DB wheelset and hydraulic disc brakes. The Reacto is an aero frame, designed to help you put every watt to good use. We gave the Merida Reacto 600 (opens in new tab) a 9/10 when we saw it a while back and the latest Reacto Team-E (opens in new tab) a 10/10, leaving you in no doubt this is a great bike.
This deal is not only impressive for the discount on offer and the bike, it's also a 2021 model! The aluminium frameset of the Fenix is dressed in Shimano Tiagra, with TRP cable disc brakes. The Vittoria Zaffiro tyres are specced in a 25mm size, and should provide grip and confidence without adding too much rolling resistance and it's now within the Cyclescheme (bike to work) max value.
The CAAD13 is Cannondale’s performance alloy bike with racing geometry. We absolutely love this bike, giving the Cannondale CAAD13 Disc Force AXS road bike (opens in new tab) a 10/10 and a Cycling Weekly Editor's Choice Award.
Merida’s Scultura road bike has a racing geometry with its CF4 carbon frame and fork. We've ridden a few versions and loved the slightly more relaxed geometry of the Merida Scultura 7000-E (opens in new tab), so if your after a race bike, this could be the one for you.  Shimano Ultegra groupset complete with Continental Grand Sport Race 25mm tyres, for a box read race whip.
This is a serious saving on the endurance style Boardman SLR 9.6 road bike, we rode the Boardman SLR 8.6 Women's Carbon (opens in new tab) recently and highly rated it with a 9/10 The titanium build will have many fans looking for a slightly softer ride feel with incredibly durability. Specced out with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset with hydraulic disc brakes. It's the long termer for any stable, and will serve you for life.
Van Rysel, is well known for delivering bikes with an incredible spec for unbelievable price points and this deal only highlights that further. The lower specced Van Rysel Ultra CR (opens in new tab) was another Cycling Weekly Editor's Choice winner last year. The decathlon house brand operates so close to the margins, any kind of discount is a rarity. It’s incredibly rare to see a carbon road bike with an Ultegra electronic groupset, rolling on a set of Mavic Cosmic UST PRO SL wheels this close to £3,000.
Giant’s TCR Advanced SL 1 carbon road bike is an out and out race beast. The nimble front-end handling and stiffness-to-weight ratio makes this hard to hold back at times. We've the top model, Giant TCR Advance SL 0 (opens in new tab), and found it thrilling, if a little harsh. Equipped with a 24 speed SRAM AXS drivetrain, smooth, responsive shifting is promised. The hydraulic disc brakes promise powerful and controlled braking performance.

Always classic and classy, De Rosa bikes will always have space in our hearts. The IDOL promises to be lightweight, agile and comfortable. The Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset breaks away from the Italian's heritage, but will be a big draw for many riders, especially at this price.
Another cracker of a Ridley deal, this time for folk after an adventure. Self named as a 'do it all' machine. It's based around a triple butted aluminium frame, and comes with SRAM Apex 1 shifting plus TRP cable operated disc brakes. Tyres are all important in a gravel bike, and these are WTB Riddler's in a size 45c.
