Riding through rain, wind and hail isn't most cyclist's favourite exploit - but as the saying goes, "winter miles lead to summer smiles."

The other saying is that there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing - but we think that extends to accessories such as tyres, too.

Getting all the gear for winter can become a little expensive, but you can save yourself some cash with the great Black Friday offers available.

We've rounded up just a few. All of our Black Friday pages contain links to retailers. If you click on a link we may receive a small commission, this does not affect the amount you pay.

Fed up with standing beside wet roads, mending punctures? Then try going tubeless! The set-up process has long been an off-putting factor, but it doesn't need to be.

Schwalbe's Pro One's use "microskin" technology to make the process that little bit easier, even at high pressures. They're also great rolling tyres, grippy in the corners and fast enough to race without sacrificing resilience.

Continental Grand Prix 5000 Black Chili Tubeless Tyre – was £69.95 now £42.95
