Evans Cycles Black Friday deals: when will they be available?

For the last few years, the best Evans Black Friday deals have actually started to become available in the week running up to the day itself.

For example for Black Friday 2015, Evans started releasing deals from 20 November, seven days before the day itself. These deals were then updated on a daily basis, with the best deals being promoted on the company’s Facebook page.

If that wasn’t enough, then the Evans Cycles Black Friday deals continued through the weekend to Cyber Monday, meaning that you had a full 11 days of huge savings. Expect to see a similar thing this time round.

Evans Cycles Black Friday deals: what to expect

As the only major retailer to be a big player both online and in bricks and mortar store, Evans Cycles should have a lot to offer this Black Friday, so expect discounts of more than 50 per cent to be available n the website and on the high street.

Back in 2015, a Shimano Ultegra groupset could be picked up for £414.99 (reduced from £999.99), while a Scott Addict Team Issue road bike was discounted from £5,699 to £3,399.

For Black Friday 2016, we’re expecting Evans to follow a similar pattern to the deals it put on in 2015, with discounts across the board on wheels, saddles, tyres, clothing, and a whole lot more. There could also be some bargains to be found on cycling gadgets, such as computers from the Garmin Edge range (Evans Cycles was offering £40 off on the Garmin Edge 25 last year) with electronics a traditional focus of Black Friday buying.

Another part of the Evans Cycles Black Friday deals should be some pretty tasty vouchers. For example you got a £10 voucher if you spent between £60 and £100, and a £20 voucher if you spent anything more than that.

Other than that there should be deals everywhere, with Black Friday being the perfect time for picking up bargains on end-of-season 2016 kit that will have you fully kitted out for 2017 with plenty of time to spare.

What is Black Friday?

For consumers and retailers in the UK, Black Friday is a recent phenomenon, but it has been going strong the United States for decades.

Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving (which in 2016 is 25 November), and is traditionally seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season, with high street retailers opening their doors at the crack of dawn and offering big discounts for shoppers who have set their alarm clocks.

The rise of internet shopping has allowed the Black Friday tradition to spread throughout the world, with the UK’s bike retailers like Wiggle, Chain Reaction, Evans Cycles, and Halfords all getting caught up in the scramble to get shoppers to part with their cash.
