Cannondale Synapse 105 disc 2017 was £2199, now £1499
The Synapse is Cannondale’s endurance machine, and we liked it so much it received our Editor’s Choice award. Because this is a 2017 model, the price has been slashed by almost £700, which means you get the superbly comfortable carbon frame and Shimano’s excellent 105 groupset for a fraction of the price it was.
The thing we liked the most about the Synapse, though, was the fact that when it needed to go fast, it didn’t shy away for an amazing turn of pace. It’s an endurance frame, with a race horse kick.
Mavic Kysrium Pro Carbon SL disc were £1700, now £949
Summer is fast approaching, which means now is the perfect time to bag a bargain on a seriously good pair of wheels. A seriously good pair of wheels like the Mavic Kysrium Pro Carbon SL.
We’ve not been able to review the carbon Kysriums before, but we did award the aluminium Elite versions full marks in a recent test. We’ve also been blow away by Mavic’s Cosmic wheelset, too. The standard out features of these wheels has got to be their lightweight (just 1520g for the set), their 25mm height (the perfect balance between stiffness, aerodynamics, and weight as well as the fact they come supplied with Mavic’s Yksion tyres. Knock a whopping 44% off the retail price and you’ve got yourself a seriously amazing deal.
Specialized S-Works 6 road shoe, was £310, now £297
With the launch of the Specialized S-Works 7, we’ve been anticipating a drop in price of the Specialized S-Works 6 road shoe, and it’s happened. Which is brilliant, because we absolutely loved this shoe. So much so, we’ve gave it our coveted Editor’s Choice award.
In particularly, we were amazed by the stiffness of the sole (13 on Spesh’s index) yet how comfortable it was able to be. The heel grips perfectly and the Boa dials give a great tightening action on top of the foot. They also look great, too.
Gore One GTX jacket was £220, now £143
Gore is renowned for its brilliant wet weather kit, and we’ve its high tier clothing, like the Gore ONE 1985, and given it our Editor’s Choice award.
