Black Friday is well and truly upon us, and out of all of the retailers making a racket, Wiggle are arguably making the loudest cheapest noises.
Some of their discounts they've pumped out of their coffers today are truly extraordinary. Arguably one of the best carbon fibre bike deals we've ever seen sits in this DealClincher Takeover, and on top of that we've got clothing, smart trainers and more for you.
Obviously there are more Wiggle deals hidden among all of our other Black Friday features and deals. Follow the link below to get to our Black Friday Deal Hub.

Here is the selection of our favourite deals from Wiggle this Black Friday!
Lets start with some huge savings on Eddy Merckx bikes. These have been raced in the highest ranks of the pro peloton under the Quick Step team of Boonen.
The Eddy Merckx Mourenx 69 is reduced by 62% making a £3,499 bike just £1299.99!
We think this could be one of the best carbon fibre bike deals we've ever seen. The endurance racer carries Shimano's amazing Ultegra groupset and Fulcrum's Racing 5 wheelset.
Astonishing specs for £1300!
The San Remo 76 features SRAM eTap for only £2499.99. The wireless groupset has received high praise right across the cycling industry, while Fulcrum's Racing 4 wheelset are fantastic.
You'll be quick and comfortable. And just think, Boonen never had wireless shifting!
The Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels are a brilliant upgrade to any bike. At this price though, they're even more appealing.
They've got oversized aluminium hubs with a huge drive side flange on the rear for extra stiffness. At the rim, extra weight has been saved through a milling process bringing these down to only 1555g for the set.
Back in 2012, David Else took a look at an earlier version. Even at 45g heavier, he found them to be "responsive, strong and well made".
The battle of Garmin vs Wahoo is well and truly on. Thankfully, Wiggle have deals on both, so you can save no matter which way you go.
The Garmin Edge 520 has the heavier discount at 40%. It's also slightly cheaper at £167.99.
What the Wahoo Element loses in discount, it makes up for in features. This brilliant little unit features turn by turn navigation and maps, something the 520 misses out on.
At £189.99 it's slightly more expensive, but that's worth it should you need a little guidance whilst riding.
Who needs regular people clothes when you can have bike kit? At this time of year especially, kit is the thing that will keep you riding in comfort when the weather turns really nasty.
The dhb range is brilliant and this Aeron Storm FLT Waterproof Jacket is just another fantastic piece of kit. It is rated to 45,000mm on the waterproofing scale so this should keep you bone dry in the rain. What's more, this is currently reduced by 40%, down to £90.
Next up is the Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve. This jersey is windproof, water resistant and comes in lighter than the Gabba, it's predecessor. With a great range of colours from hi-vis to stealth black, you can pick one up with a 50% saving.
There's no denying that winter's here now.
Investing in winter kit is always a tough decision in the UK. Who's to say we'll actually get a cold-enough winter to warrent an £80 pair of bibtights?
Fortunately, thanks to Black Friday, that debate is no longer on the table. These dhb bib tights are a bargain at £48.
If you're aftter the ultimate in smart training hardware, the Tacx Neo Direct Drive should be the number for you.
It's silent, it's powerful, it's accurate. It'll deliver an unbelievably realistic road feel to your indoor training while also being compatible with all your favourite training apps - Zwift included.
At the cheaper end of the smart training spectrum sits Tacx's Vortex Smart. Where the Neo above is a direct drive unit that the Vortex provides resistance through an electro brake.
It's connectable to a computer, smartphone or tablet and is compatible with most cycling apps!
