1. Castelli men's Gavia jacket: was $499.99, now $200.00 at Competitive Cyclist

With 60% off retail, this deal takes the versatile Gavia jacket from a wish list item to a must buy it now! A mid-weight shell with Gore-Tex protection, it's designed to fend of the wet and the wild. The long tail adds protection at the rear, while the storm zipper flap does the same at the front. We also like that the Gavia is cut a little roomier than a typical race-fit rain cape, meaning you can layer up if needed, making it work across a wider range of temps.

Garmin Edge 1030 Plus: now $599.99, now $339.28 at Amazon

We really rated the Garmin Edge 1030 when we reviewed it, finding it's features and functions very user friendly. It's one of the largest Garmin bike computers, but this does make maps and other data metrics, such as power, easy to read. It gains all of Garmin's nifty virtual coaching features, and is more off road friendly thanks to a specific mode setting. This discount is a fair one, but be aware that the brand has also just bought out it's latest flagship model the Garmin Edge 1040. This means the 1030 is no longer the range topper, so discounted units are more likely in a few shops, so check the quick links above before you buy.
