This aero lid offers a huge frontal vent when you need it.

The slider is really easy to use, allowing you to increase ventilation as soon as you start climbing.

When this helmet was first launched, we thought that it looked absolutely brilliant for racing.

Just think, you could have the vent closed while rolling along the flats in the bunch, saving extra watts, then slide the cover away to keep your head cool while climbing.

37% off Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 Brake Calipers

Incrementally upgrading the best bike is one of our favourite hobbies!

But part of going faster is being able to brake later into corners and modulate braking power mid-turn.

The latest Dura-Ace rim brakes are a really fabulous set of callipers. They are light throughout the lever stroke, allowing you to generate power easily.

Up to 37% off Fulcrum Racing 3 DB Clincher Road Wheelset

Fulcrum Racing 3 DB Wheelset
£389.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The general trend in wheel and tyre choice amongst road riders these days is to go for something a bit wider and this is something that Fulcrum has spotted and reacted to with the latest version of their Racing 3 DB wheels. 

We'd advise going for the 25mm or 28mm option when you’re buying tyres for these wheels as the comfort gains are brilliant with no speed sacrifice. 

While racers and those looking to go as fast as possible will be looking at properly deep wheels, the rest of will be best served by a set of mid-depth rims.

25% off Northwave Magma R Rock Road Shoes

Northwave Magma R Rock Road Shoes
£105.00

A new pair of cycling shoes isn't just a potential performance upgrade, they can be a style refresh too.

The upper is super thin, but very strong, meaning that it won't stretch under load. That allows the shoe to transfer all of your power through to the pedals.

A carbon sole can sometimes be too stiff and harsh, causing hot spots on the foot which can ruin a ride.

But Northwave's Jaws Carbon sole gets the balance right.

56% off San Marco Mantra Full-Fit Racing Road Saddle

San Marco Mantra Full-Fit Racing Road Saddle
£59.99

If you’re looking for a new saddle then you’ll find a huge range of options from one of the oldest saddle brands, Selle San Marco.

The Italian company has been around for years, but this, the Mantra, is a properly modern design.

The carbon shell offers a flat profile with Biofoam padding wrapped in a Microfeel cover. 

Up to 58% off Deda SuperZero Aero Alloy Road Handlebars

Deda SuperZero Aero Alloy Road Handlebar

To get an aero set of handlebars, you don't have to spend tons of money on carbon.

These alloy bars are great, with good stiffness and an aero top section that is designed to minimise drag. It's also a very comfy place to rest your hands when climbing.

48% off Merlin Cycles Elite Travel Bike Bag

Merlin Cycles Elite Travel Bike Bag

This looks really easy to pack and then roll up when not in use.

Getting your bike on a plane is never a nice experience. There are many stories of snapped tubes due to dodgy handlers and the range of hire bikes available in cycling hot spots like Mallorca and the Alps makes leaving your bike at home tempting. But the cost of hiring and the thought of using a bike that we're not used to is more than enough to convince us to fly with our bike.

A lightweight, properly padded bag with handles makes it easier for the handlers to move your bike, hopefully resulting in fewer dropped bikes. They're also much easier for you to get in and out of your car and while there are horror stories, the vast majority of bikes arrive safely.

Merlin's bike bag features dense padding, crush protection, and padded wedges to give your bike as much protection as possible. That's very reassuring when you're transporting a few grand's worths of your pride and joy.
