We've already had a great Canyon Takeover on the site this week and loads more deals too!
Canyon Inflite AL 9.0
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products
The fast-paced and highly skilled racing is addicting and it demands a special bike. This is the aluminium Inflite. It's got everything we're looking for in a race bike, with a great groupset, excellent brakes and a geometry that is fun to ride but also very stable.
At £270 off, this is the perfect way to take racing more seriously or to simply get off-road on a brilliant bike.
There are also great savings on the Carbon Inflite, with the top tube design that has proven itself in the biggest races. The whole range can be viewed here, with savings of up to 12%.
A whole load of technical design has gone into making this jacket. In total, Assos have used 14 patterns, 4 different textiles and 12 separate components, all aimed at regulating your temperature whilst riding.
Sportful Fiandre Light NoRain Bibshorts
These Sportful NoRain bibshorts do exactly what they say on the tin, they keep out the water so your glutes, hamstrings and quads can stay warm and dry.
The bibs also feature a great fit so this is the perfect deal coming into spring.
Canyon Exceed CF 24
Canyon's kids' bikes are some of the best we've ever seen.
Across the whole range that we have here, the bikes are all equipped with hydraulic disc brakes. That might seem like overkill, but when you consider the limited strength of kid's hands, they make perfect sense.
Giro Tremor Helmet
Getting the fit correct on a kids helmet can be challenging. The Grio Tremor, however, comes in a Unisex size with the highly adjustable Roc Loc Sport Fit system.
Canyon Sram Youth Jersey
The Canyon Sram women's pro cycling team have been lighting up the early season racing this year with loads of attacking riding.
Young fans of Cromwell, Barnes and Niewiadoma can support their favourite rider with this youth replica jersey.
More Mega Deals
De Rosa King XS Dura Ace 9100
De Rosa have used full mechanical Dura Ace 9100 for a really lightweight build and one that works superbly.
While some would be inclined to use Campagnolo on an Italian frame, we prefer the functionality of Dura Ace over the aesthetics of Campagnolo.
Finishing kit comes from 3T with the Ergonova Pro bars and Arx Pro stem. The wheelset here is a pair of Fulcrum Racing Zero, shod with Vittoria Rubiano Pro 25mm tyres.
FFWD F6R DT180 Special Edition Wheelset
Designed for competitive racers and serious amateurs, the FFWD F6R wheels are a 60mm deep carbon clincher. The discounted price opens these wheels up to more modest budgets and we'd say they'd be an excellent upgrade option for any higher end carbon bike.
The wheels have been constructed with aerodynamics in mind and feature a wide rim with a 22.4mm external measurement. That's not the widest we've seen, but it'll still sit really nicely with 25mm tyres for speed and cornering grip.
The blacked out carbon hubs are seriously beautiful and the straight pull Sapim CX Ray aero spokes add yet more aero benefits.
Norco Threshold A Tiagra 2018 CX Bike
For a new cyclist or a rider wanting to explore more than just road, a basic CX bike can be just the answer. The wider tyres, disc brakes and slacker geometry result in bikes that are fun to ride and inspire confidence.
This Norco Threshold gets the perfect component package for the ride to work during the week and then exploring at the weekend.
The Aluminium frame is light and stiff enough to keep the bike responsive, whilst the Tiagra 10 speed groupset is functional and robust for some off-road use.
Shimano Ultegra 6800 Pedals
The pedals have served us 3 years without needing to be greased and they still clip in and out really easily.
The tension is easy to adjust and starts off quite low, meaning that beginners can be confident when approaching a junction.
The wide pedal body provides a great base for power transfer and the cleats last us about a year. We use the fixed version, but most riders will prefer the 2° and 6° options.
