dealclincher

Merlin Cycles are here for an absolutely brilliant takeover.

The deals are so good that we've split them down into 2 parts. Check out the deals below on some great stuff from DT Swiss, Castelli, Giro, Altura and Panaracer, then head over to part 2 for more savings!

25% off Panaracer Gravel King SK

Panaracer Gravel King SK
£29.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Getting a gravel tyre right is pretty tricky. They've got to be robust, fast, grippy, tubeless and puncture resistant.

It's a tough one to nail, but Pananracer has done it. Not only do the customer reviews give this a 5/5, David Arthur loved these when he tested them for road.cc

The tyres are really robust, with David not only riding puncture free, but also noticing no cuts over the several months that he tested them for.

These are also easy to set up tubeless and provide a great ride at lower pressures.

 

45% off DT Swiss R522 Road Wheels

DT Swiss R522 Road Wheelset
£109.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

If you're looking for some really excellent road wheels at a bargain price, these are a great option.

At only £109.99, they sit at the ideal price for riders looking for an upgrade from basic stock wheels and also riders looking for a high-quality set of training wheels.

DT Swiss hubs are known for being ultra-reliable with sealed bearings. The rims are wide enough for new tyre trends with an internal rim width of 18mm.

 

46% off this Argon 18 E-80 TT / Tri Aluminium Frameset

Argon 18 E-80 TT Frameset
£539.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Time Trialing is some people's idea of torture, for us, it's the best way to get into a bit of racing.

If you're looking to take your TTs a little more seriously, then a proper TT bike is essential. Building one up from this Argon 18 Frameset is a great way to go.

This aero aluminium frame will put you in a better TT position than a road bike. This deal is even better when you realise you get the brakes and levers included!

All you need is a groupset, wheelset and some finishing kit and you're ready for the race against time.

 

57% off Ritchey Comp Race Slick Tubular Tyre

Ritchey Comp Race Slick Tubular Tyre
£14.95
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Part of that TT build will need to be tyres and while many are using clinchers, we still use tubulars for racing.

These 21mm wide tubs from Ritchey are perfect for the race against the clock. The narrow profile is still believed to be faster by many riders, especially at the higher pressures of TTs.

With Merlin's MultiBuy offer, you can get these tyres down to an incredible £12.50 each!

 

46% off Castelli Team Sky Fan Jersey

Castelli Team Sky Fan Jersey
£32.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

With Team Sky updating their kit for the new racing season, their old jersey can be found at bargain prices.

We're quite happy about that as we much prefer this old design. We especially love the blue training kit which we would have loved to see become their racing kit this year.

This fan jersey is identical to the racing jersey worn by the pros, but it gets a more relaxed cut for those on a not so strict diet!

 

48% off Giro Cinder MIPS Road Helmet

Giro Cinder MIPS Helmet
£67.50
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The Cinder pull technology straight from the top-end Synthe. In fact, there's very little to tell between the 2.

The big difference is the price which at only £67.50 is an absolute steal!

The Roc Loc® 5 fit system provides massive adjustability while the MIPS protection is a great extra safety feature in the event of a crash.

 

40% off Altura Tour 36 Pannier Bags Pair

Altura Tour 36 Pannier Bags Pair
£32.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Panniers are worth every penny in our opinion. Riding to work without a rucksack on your back for the first time is liberating, and much less sweaty!

These simple panniers from Altura perform way beyond their price tag, with waterproof taped seams ensuring electronics and clothing inside remain dry.

The simple design means that you can fit loads in the open cavity, with the single exterior pocket being ideal for storing some essential tools.
