It's been another great start to the week with massive discounts on some great kit.

We've got a massive spread of prices too, from cheap jackets to high-end framesets.

Best get your stakes on if you want to snap up one of these.

The Ribble R872 is one of their best bikes with a fast feel and great handling.

Unboxed: Ribble R872

This limited time offer allows you to pick your own components, a great way to get the perfect bike.

We were lucky enough to ride the R8000 groupset in Italy and it is fabulous. 

The braking is really powerful and the shifting is amazingly crisp. We had the 50/34 chainset but we'd have 52/36 for UK riding.

 

Super Cheap Endura Pakajak Jacket

£13.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

At only £13.99, this is perfect for popping in your bag or pocket.

Shockingly, the UK occasionally gets a spot of rain in the summer, so it's best to be prepared.

Road.cc Review: Endura Pakajak

The Pakajak is a really simple showerproof and windproof shell that makes it very useful for chilly weather. That means it's not just for the rain, it'll be perfect for popping on at the top of a climb if the descent is going to be chilly.

Endura have designed this with its own little stowing pouch so it'll pack into a tidy shape when not in use.

There are more deals right here!

We think this is also perfect for commuters as it can be stored easily in a bag without adding too much weight or taking up much space.

 

41% off Prime RR-50 Carbon Clincher Disc Wheelset

Prime RR-50 Carbon Clincher Disc Wheelset
£449.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

A pair of fast wheels doesn't have to cost the earth.

At £449.99, these wheels from Prime represent great value for money.

The disc brake-specific wheels do away with the issues of poor braking found on rim brake carbon wheels.

Road.cc Review: Prime RP-38 Carbon Clincher

The rim has been designed specifically for use with disc brakes, meaning that the braking surface can be removed from the rim.

This has allowed a wider rim to be designed with a more aerodynamic profile.

The internal rim with is also different to a rim bake, with the 25mm wide rim matching perfectly to wider tyres. Prime recommend using a 25-30mm tyre for the best results.

 

Charge Spoon Saddles Down 37%

Charge Spoon Saddle
£18.79
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This brilliant saddle can be had at only £18.79.

The classic rounded shape means that loads of people love this perch. It also makes a really cheap upgrade.

Road.cc Review: Charge Spoon

The Spoon features a great level of padding. It'll soak up a load of vibration, but isn't too soft so it won't leave you numb in the bum.

A central pressure-relief channel allows good blood flow to be maintained, while the cover material is easy to clean after a muddy ride.

The CR-MO rails keep the saddle down to a very respectable 285g.

 

Up to 60% off Argon 18 Framesets at Merlin

There a road and TT framesets, all at massive discounts!

Argon 18 are a Canadian bike manufacturer that have frames with some really clever design features.

One of the features that Argon18 have designed is the 3D headset. This offers 3 headtube heights for every frame size, without compromising stiffness like spacers do.

This is a great design for riders that don't want to slam their stem as the bike's handling is preserved.

Our eyes are drawn to the whopping 60% off the Krypton Frameset. It's an incredible offer for a frameset that is designed for all-day comfort and stability.

We also can help but notice the 53% off the XRoad Disc Frameset. With clearance for 32mm tyres, it's one for more than just road riding.

Save 45% on this Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 Shift Kit

Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 Shift Kit
£399.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This is a great way to go electronic.

We love a deal on Di2, especially this 'older' 11-speed Ultegra stuff. The shifting is seriously worth the upgrade.

If you're already running a Shimano groupset, it's easier to switch to Di2 than you think.

You can get this kit and simply swap out the mechs and shifters and you're sorted!

You'll need the internal seatpost batteryJunction Box A and Junction Box B, but they're readily available second hand or heavily discounted.

Cables will depend on your bike setup. We use 300mm cables from the shifters to Junction A, under the stem on a 40cm handlebar.

If you've got Di2 bars like these from Pro, you can use the bar-end Junction box, for clean-looking fully hidden cables.

Elite Drivo Direct Drive Turbo with Power Meter
£964.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This smart trainer will automatically adjust resistance, improving integration with training apps.

We realise that this isn't the time to be thinking about turbo training, but it's the perfect time to save on the turbo that will revolutionise your winter training.

Road.cc Review: Elite Drivo Smart Trainer

This Elite Drivo has an inbuilt power meter to make tracking your performance super-simple. It is accurate to within +/- 1%.

The resistance will also be automatically adjusted to allow training apps to be fully interactive. 

This deal includes the PBK exclusive offer of an extra 10% off. It's capped at a £25 max discount, but that's still a great deal in our eyes! Remember the code TOP10!

The latest Shimano Ultegra groupset is already heavily discounted.

This deal also lets you choose your preferred crank length.

Shimano's Ultegra 6800 available at insane 48% discount

The shifting is crisp and accurate, even under heavy load and the braking is really powerful.

The shifter ergonomics have been tweaked slightly from the 6800 edition and we found them to be really comfy on long days and slightly easier to reach from the drops.

Shimano launches new Ultegra R8000 groupset

This groupset allows you to pick the crank length and we'd recommend going shorter. We've made the jump to 170 from 172.5 and noticed a positive difference in our hip area with less tightness post ride.

 

Insane 50% off this Canon EOS 200D Twin kit

The brilliant 200D body comes with an 18-55mm IS lens and also a 55-250mm IS lens.

This is a brilliant DSLR for sports photography with the 9-point autofocus system providing a quick focus on fast moving objects.

We really like this deal if you're getting serious as the twin lens kit gives you a great range of applications. 

If you're just after the body, TobyDeals also have 50% off the standalone body. At only £343.99, it's a great deal if you've already got lenses.
