The January sales have arrived and there are plenty of great deals to be had on bikes, clothing, and equipment
If you’re bank account isn’t completely empty after Christmas and New Year, then there are plenty of deals around on bikes, clothing, components and accessories in the January sales.
It’s a great time of year to be looking to buy new kit. With 2016 products now available, everyone is desperate to get rid of their 2015 stock, even if the only thing that has been updated for this year is the choice of colours.
So here is our pick of the best deals from all the big retailers.
Scott Addict Team Issue – £3399.99 from £5699
Louis Garneau Commit Women’s waterproof jacket – £39.99 from £99.99
A great choice for the wet, mild weather that we’ve been having recently, this waterproof jacket is also small enough to stuff away in a rear pocket when the rain stops
Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 groupset – £859.99 from £2000
Chain Reaction Cycles
Mavic Syncro helmet – £39.99 from £80

Continental Long Valve Inner Tube – £2.99 from £7.99
Not the most exciting purchase you can make in the sales, but at this price it’s worth stocking up on these long valve inner tubes, especially if you’re regularly running deep section wheels.

These Pearl Izumi shoes should thrive on hot rides with their ventilated soles and upper, also having a low stack height for better power transfer
