Deals For the Dirt: It's the Off-Road Roundup!
Friday, May 4, 2018 - 10:17
There is something strange happening this weekend. It's a Bank Holiday and there's good weather forecast!
We've got one thing scheduled for the long weekend and it's got bikes written all over it. It'd be rude not to.
Sram Eagle 12 Speed Cassette
Turn it up to 12 with this super-bling cassette.
Eagle technology gives you a massive spread of gears with smaller jumps for better shifting.
Shock and horror, mountain biking is still leading the way in tech developments. While you guys are loving 12 speed, we roadies are still debating the ethics of an extra sprocket.
This Sram Eagle cassette ranges from 10-50T, giving plenty of gears for both technical climbs and fast descents.
The cassette is machined to allow it to be made lighter and also stronger.
Altura Five/40 Waterproof Jacket
Ideal for riding through a British summer.
This lightweight waterproof jacket is perfect for rides throughout the year. Especially if you're riding remote trails.
The Five/40 fits well and mimics normal clothing sizing. This relaxed fit means that it's ideal for off the bike too.
It's also comfortable to wear with no tight spots and a nice microfibre-type material lining the inside of the high collar.
The hood is removable which is ideal if you don't like having one choking you on every descent!
Feedback Sports Sport Mechanic Workstand
This workstand is reliable and easy to use.
Feedback's Sport stand is the one used in the road.cc office. It's seen a fair amount of abuse over the years but it's still going strong.
The Sport is easy to assemble and getting the bike secured is straightforward thanks to a well-made clamping system.
There's not much flex in the system either, making working on the bike much easier.
This really comes into play when you come to jobs like wrapping bar tape where a little extra force is required.
The office stand has also seen plenty of water from washing bikes and there is no visible rust.
Camelbak Podium 710ml Water Bottle
Who knew you could even upgrade your water bottles!
These bottles from Camelbak are ideal for both on and off the bike. The lockable Jet Valve prevents spillages in your bag.
The ability to lock the top makes this ideal for sticking in your rucksack when you're hitting the trails.
This fills a nice gap when you don't want to ride with your hydration pack, but still need a little water on your ride.
The bottle is also great for commuters and you can guarantee zero leakage onto your laptop.
Shimano CM-2000 Action Camera
We love a good action camera, great for filming descents and also shoddy driving!
Whatever your intended use, this Shimano camera provides brilliant footage with secure mounting options.
This is a pretty incredible deal at £140 off, so it's worth being quick with this one.
The camera was used inside the pro peloton to bring us insane footage like this, from the final 3 km of a sprint finish.
The image is stable throughout and the detail is more than good enough. The camera also handles the change from bright to dark areas really well.
For mounting, an out front mount like a K-Edge that combines the camera and your computer is the neatest solution we've found.
Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Dry Lube
Buy the dry lube at 54% off and get the Ceramic Wet Lube for free!
That's quite a deal, especially when both lubes are so highly rated. This offer will give you smooth shifting whatever the weather.
For normal riders like us, the lube stays on the drivetrain well, resisting dust a water without causing too much mess.
The Dry lube is one of the only summer lubes that can withstand winter riding. When Shaun Audane tested this, he found it to run very clean, suggesting that it won't pick up a load of road gunk.
The Wet lube is much tougher and designed to withstand some truly horrendous riding conditions.
In our experience, the lube is brilliant. We leave this stuff on for a full week of winter riding, only cleaning once on a Saturday afternoon.
Giro Synthe Mips Helmet
This aero helmet gives great ventilation making it perfect for training and racing.
The Synthe is Giro's answer to the issue of hot aero lids. The helmet gets addition protection from the Mips system inside.
Giro wanted a helmet that was fast but didn't boil the rider when the sun came out.
The helmet offers a brilliant fit and whilst the Mips system does add a little weight, it's still only 254g in size medium. We'd take a little extra protection over a few grams any day!
The Roc Loc retention system provides a secure but comfortable fit which is also 'ponytail compatible'.
