Merlin Cycles is back with another packed Takeover. 

48% off Castelli Raddoppia 2 Cycling Jacket 

Castelii Raddoppia 2 Jacket
£115.00

On the coldest days, we love wrapping up in a cosy winter jacket.

Here in the southern half of the UK, the weather is generally mild, rainy and rather disappointing. But we know that up north and in continental climates, the weather can get rather chilly in the winter.

When we get a taste of properly cold weather, it’s really nice to wrap up in a thicker winter jacket with a soft fleecy inner fabric.

Castelli uses Gore Infinium X-Fast fabric which features a fleece liner for that sung feel.

47% off Castelli Thermal Pro Cycling Vest

Castelli Thermal Pro Cycling Vest
£45.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This gilet is one of the new-style garments that bridges the gap between summer and winter kit.

This thermal gilet gives you a fleecy outer layer to help to stay warm on colder spring rides.

There are two great colours to choose from and the gilet comes with three rear pockets for extra storage.

45% off Ridley Noah Fast Frameset – Limited Edition

Ridley Noah Fast Frameset
£2099.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Ridley's Noah has evolved over the years into a comfortable aero bike that handles really well.

That makes it a fabulous bike to take into a sprint finish, but it's equally at home on fast group rides.

The Noah Fast differs from the standard Noah thanks to its extra aero touches. The fork and frame get what Ridley calls its F-Surface, a textured finish to the upper layer of carbon that is used in key areas as a trip layer, improving aerodynamics.

43% off Gios Aero Lite Road Frameset

Gios Aero Lite Road Frameset
£1149.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

If you’re looking to build up a carbon road bike then this Gios frameset would be a very good starting point.

It features some very sensible features like the threaded bottom bracket and well-placed internal cable routing ports.

The frameset includes the Gios Aero Carbon seatpost.

58% off Pinarello Gan Disc QR Road Frameset

Pinarello Gan Disc QR Road Frameset
£1099.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The Pinarello Gan was designed to provide the race pedigree of the Dogma F8 with a comfier ride.

We’re glad to see disc brakes on this model as many sportives that we’ve ridden take in some narrow lane descents and road conditions are generally deteriorating.

Hydraulic disc brakes make it easier to control your speed and you’re not going to trash your expensive rims in the rain.

There’s space in the frame for 28mm tyres and you can build it up with mechanical or electronic shifting.

44% off Gios Titanio Road Frameset

Gios Titanio Road Frameset
£1449.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

While carbon is great for creating specific tube shapes, titanium is loved by many riders for the excellent ride quality.

Again, we love the sensible threaded bottom bracket that Gios has used. They’re much easier to fit than a press-fit bottom bracket and threaded systems rarely cause issues, something that we can’t say of press fit.

The frameset comes complete with a carbon fork.

45% off DT Swiss PR 1600 Dicut 21 Disc Road Wheelset

DT Swiss PR 1600 Dicut 21 Disc Road Wheelset
£425.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This wheelset from DT Swiss is designed specifically for disc brakes, with the rim being made wider thanks to the lack of braking surface.

The shape of the rim is also better able to support the tyre sidewall, giving a great profile for cornering grip.

The hubs here are the reliable DT 350 with sealed bearings for excellent longevity.

The package includes tubeless tape and valves, so it's super easy to set up without tubes!

46% off Campagnolo Zonda C17 Clincher Road Wheelset

Campagnolo Zonda C17 Clincher Wheelset
£289.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Lightweight alloy wheels are still a great buy for riding in mixed terrain. You get the low weight that makes them easy to spin uphill and a strong braking surface for better control going back down.

With Campagnolo's Zonda C17 wheelset, you get a redesigned rim that helps add more support for wider tyres while also trimming weight from the previous version of the wheelset.

The rim depth differs from front to rear with the low profile 24mm front rim keeping weight down and handling stability up.

A 27mm-deep rear rim adds a little aero advantage while also helping to add stiffness to deal with drivetrain forces.

52% off Kask Mojito Road Cycling Helmet

Kask Mojito Helmet
£56.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Kask's Mojito was initially developed with Team Sky, way back when the team was first launched.

Since then, the helmet has been tweaked to add an ECO leather chin strap and updated graphics. What hasn't changed is the excellent fit that the helmet gives.

That fit means no mushroom look as the sides sit very close to the sides of the head.

40% off Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed HO Groupset

Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed HO Groupset
£916.50
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Mechanical Campagnolo groupsets will always have a place in our hearts for their style and heritage.

The Chorus groupset offers a lot of new tech though, with lots of carbon and clever hood ergonomics.

While you can get 12-speed groupsets from Campagnolo, 11 gears are perfectly suitable in our experience.

Carbon has been used all over this groupset to save weight where possible. As an upgrade, this is perfect for any Campagnolo fan.
