dealclincher

This week, we're gearing up for a mad sprint for Friday's finish line.

We've got something really great lined up from one of our favourite bike brands!

But before then, let's have a little look at the deals we've found so far.

 

30% off Specialized S-Works Shoes

Specialized S-Works 6 Shoes
£217.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Now that the new S-Works shoes are available, the 2017 version is going cheap!

The shoes feature a pretty radical heel design which proved to be comfier than it looks.

The S-Works range is Specialized's top of the line kit. These shoes are the lightest, stiffest and most expensive that the American company produce.

Road.cc Review: Specialized S-Works 6 Shoes

The 2017 model was a real head turner with its heel design clamping the heel firmly in the shoe. This made it absolutely brilliant to ride, with no heel slip at all.

The middle of the foot is pretty slender, but there's quite a bit of room in the forefoot.

The closure is done with 2 BOA dials, while the velcro strap for the toe is generally left alone once set.

We've owned these shoes for 1 season and they're a brilliant shoe for racing.

This deal from last week is still on! The sale includes 23mm, 25mm and 28mm options.

Continental use their Black Chilli compound in the rubber which provides 30% more grip than their old compound.

This grip is especially noticeable on wet roads and we've noticed the cornering ability in races.

The GP4000s II also provides pretty good puncture protection from its Vectran breaker layer.

This clincher tyre is perfect for your summer bike as they'll do faster rides but also soak up a load of training miles.

Up to 40% off this Sportful Hot Pack Gilet

Sportful Hot Pack Gilet
£38.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Lightweight, packable and water resistant. This is ideal for a chilly start.

Riding in spring can present some very chilly mornings where a gilet like this is vital.

A gilet isn't just limited to cool weather. Any ride in the mountains, even smaller hills can lead to chilly descents, especially if you've been working hard going up.

This Hot Pack gilet packs down to fit into a jersey pocket, we put ours alongside our mini pump.

Road.cc Review: Sportful Hot Pack Gilet

When you need it, the gilet is easy to put on quickly. If you can ride no-handed, you can even pop it on whilst riding.

The gilet offers wind protection to your core, taking the cold air away from your chest. The fabric is also water resistant, making it ideal for spring showers.

 

Cateye Volt 800 RC Front Light

Cateye Volt 800
£57.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

A lightweight, rechargeable 800-lumen front light that's perfect for evening rides.

If you like to ride after work, chances are you might be tempted to end your ride at a bar. It's happened before and we're big fans of a post-ride hydration beer.

Usually, 1 beer turns into 2 and a pizza and before we know it the sun has gone. You can either sack off the 2nd beer or take a light. Shock and horror, we choose the light and 2nd beer option!

This Cateye Volt has, like the name suggests, 800 lumens which are more than enough for evening rides.

Road.cc Review: Cateye Volt 800

One annoying thing about carrying a light can be the bulk and weight. But this Volt 800 is both compact and lightweight at only 150g.

Attaching the light to the bars is really simple with a dial and strap fixing the light in place. That also means it's easy to whip off and store in your pocket until needed.

 

Huge 36% off Kask Protone Helmets

Kask Protone Helmet
£139.98
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The Protone promises an aero advantage and great air flow.

Tested with Team Sky pros, this is a do-it-all helmet for anyone wanting a well-made, fast helmet.

We see a load of these helmets at races, the Protone offers riders a bit of an aero gain without the sweaty head of a full aero lid.

The helmet features large frontal vents that channel air over the head and out of large exhaust vents.

Road.cc Review: Kask Protone Helmet

The back section of the helmet has a closed off section to aid smooth air flow. Internally, the padding is made from a Coolmax material and it doesn't hold as much sweat as previous Kask helmets.

Road.cc Buyer's Guide: Performance Helmets

The chin strap is made from a leathery material that is really easy to clean for better hygiene.

One of the reasons for the Protone's popularity is the vast range of colour options available. This combined with the excellent fit is a winning combination.

 

Merlin Padded Bike Bag now 27% off

Merlin Padded Bike Bag
£79.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This cheap bike bag is perfect for the occasional cycling holiday.

If you only take your bike abroad once every few years then this bargain bike bag will do.

Investing over £300 in a bike box that is difficult to store is a waste for some cyclists. A bike bag can be a better option if you haven't got much storage space.

This bike bag from Merlin is a great example of a well-made bag. There is a shoulder carrying strap, but what we really love is the pair of wheels at the back of the bag.

Road.cc Buyer's Guide: The best bike boxes and bags

They allow you to pull the bag easily, especially if you're a pure cyclist with no upper body muscle!

While this bag doesn't offer as much protection as a box for flying, you can add a little extra protection with 2 big pieces of cardboard.
