Here’s our weekly run-down of the deals on cycling kit we’ve found on the web this Sunday
This month we’ve got some truly excellent deals, all of which on their own would be worthy of the coveted Sunday Trading headline slot but, despite stiff competition, that honour has fallen to the CycleOps Hammer smart trainer which is discounted by a whopping £365! After that there’s two great deals on top end Giro and Fizik shoes before being rounded out by a very good value Continental GP4000 tyres deal.
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.

This machine has a built in PowerTap power meter and uses direct drive for quiet performance to help spare your neighbours. It’s Bluetooth and ANT+ compatible and can simulate 20% grades while being able to accommodate either quick release or thru-axle (both 142mm and 148mm) dropouts.
Garmin Edge 520 Performance bundle was £349, now £241
Read more: Garmin Edge 520 review
The Garmin Edge 520 is a really neat piece of kit that, until very recently, was one of the brand’s headline models. However, due to the release of the Garmin Edge 520 Plus that has a few more features the unit has had a nice price slash.
Don’t be fooled though, just because there’s a newer version doesn’t mean this model isn’t a great piece of kit. It goes far beyond the basic requirements of a cycling computer, providing more advanced training tools. This particular deal comes with a heart rate monitor and cadence sensors to give your training a jumpstart.
Fizik R1 Infinito road shoe was £324, now £259
The upper has perforations to help it breather better and keep your feet cool. The dual Boa dial fit lets you tweak the tightness of the shoe, and the Infinito closure system should stop you suffering from hot spots. The package is finished off by a stiff carbon sole that gives the shoe an additional level of performance orientation.
Giro Empire SLX shoes were £274, now £191
Read more: Giro Empire SLX shoes review
There probably isn’t a classier pair of shoes than the Giro Empire SLX and these iconic shoes have become the go to for many of the CW office.
The Evofiber upper is beautiful to look, seriously supple to wear, and it beds in really nicely over time – it’s also wipe clean. The laces might lack the on-the-fly adjustability of Boa dials but they’re cool and offer a really even fit.
Two Continental GP4000s II tyres with inner tubes were £109, now £61.99
Read more: Continental GP4000S II review
The Continental GP4000s II tyres have long been considered a pair of the go to tyres for all conditions. They’re tough enough for the worst winter months and fast enough for our summers, and now they’re discounted by 44%.
In particular, this deal gets you two tyres and two inner tubes which is staggeringly good value.
