We’ll kick off this week’s Takeover with a brilliant road bike deal that would get you set up for fast group riding, speedy sportives and flat out racing.

The 525 features a carbon frame with internal cable routing and plenty of aero features that are claimed to help you go faster.

The Ultegra Di2 groupset is one of the best on the market in our opinion. You get the exceptional performance of electronic shifting without the massive price of Dura-Ace.

Carbon wheels from Forza finish off a brilliant build.

3T calls this the ultimate aero road frameset so if you’re looking for a fast bike for the flatlands then this could be an excellent option.

3T originally launched the Strada as a 1X only frameset but added the Due a year or so later after it became apparent that roadies really wanted to stick with their 2X shifting.

One of the best features of the Strada Due is the space for up to 30mm tyres which 3T says is faster and we think is simply great for comfort.

If you’re after something a little more relaxed for general riding then Wilier’s GTR frameset offers a balance between efficiency and comfort.

Unfortunately, the colder weather seems to be far too close for comfort, so it’s time to get your wardrobe winter-ready.

This close-fit jacket focuses on being stretchy to give you an aero option when the temperatures drop.

We would liken this more to a thermal jersey than you’re classic winter jacket, so it’ll be ideal for faster riding in the cold weather.

Winter gloves are another brilliant investment and many of us can’t go without them.

Castelli’s Diluvio gloves are designed for when its cold and wet, trapping the water to provide you with a warm layer that stops your hands from freezing.

The gloves are also very stretchy and give a close fit that allows a much more natural feel of the bar.

This TL-Easy model is one of the best tyres for going tubeless. Schwalbe was an early-adopter of tubeless technology and these tyres seem to fit on numerous rims.
