Here's a roundup of today's best cycling deals.
Campagnolo Bora One Wheelset
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products
Wheels are the first upgrade many people make to a bike, and with good reason. These hoops are made for speed.
These Campagnolo Bora wheels are the more affordable of the Ultra and One editions. These feature a 50mm carbon clincher rim with Campagnolo's AC3 braking surface. That's Campagnolo's all weather braking surface for more control in the wet.
This version has also been made wider to fit the trend for wider tyres. The external rim width is up from 20.5mm to 24.2mm. While that doesn't sound like much, it does mean that they'll sit perfectly with 25mm tyres.
Hiplok V1.50 Belt Lock
Getting a lock that's small enough to take with you but safe enough to give you piece of mind isn't easy. This Hiplok V1.50 is a great solution.
The 8mm hardened steel chain is covered by a removable sleeve. This is locked by a steel lock body with brass mechanism attaching to a 10mm shackle.
The lock is rated with a Sold Secure Silver award, which would give us confidence is medium crime areas.
Cinelli Gel Cork Bar Tape
We're big fans of new tape here at Deal Clincher. It makes our bikes look fresh and gives us a little extra push to go out in bad weather.
This Cinelli Gel Cork tape is really easy to wrap, with great cushioning. At under a tenner, it makes a sensible upgrade.
The grip is very good, especially when it rains, and the tape seems to dry quickly as it doesn't soak up water.
SwissStop Flash Pro Bake Pads
SwissStop are almost iconic now for having yellow-coloured pads for your best carbon wheels.
You'd be forgiven for assuming all brake pads were pretty much the same. But put pads designed for aluminium rims on your carbon wheels and the rim surface will be eaten alive.
Carbon specific pads are much softer, which actually results in a lot of power. That's the case with these Flash Pro pads. They look after your expensive rims and give you all the power you need.
