There can be an incredible choice of great useful products on offer, as well as some to steer clear of. We’ve found the best deals on cycling kit that’s worth it, starting with the biggest savings…
This massive saving is on the 5 litre version of Muc-Off’s fast-action, biodegradable bike cleaner that’s safe on all surfaces including carbon fibre, as well as disc brakes. Muc-Off claims the Nano Technology formula used breaks down dirt and grime on a molecular level for a proper clean.
This is Topeak’s large 1.48 to1.97 litre capacity saddle bag for carrying tools. It is made from rugged 1,200-denier Cordura material with DuPont Teflon coating for some weather resistance and is attached with the strap mount and snap-on buckles.

Dorling Kindersley has compiled together 100 worthwhile cycling routes from around the world and it’s a great starting point for an epic adventure.

The patrol road between the inner and outer Berlin Wall is now a fairly flat tarmac path, and the whole circuit makes for a 100-mile history trail and it’s now on reviewer Richard Peploe’s riding hit list for example.
Looking for an eco-friendly product for making your bike clean and shiny? This 1 litre spray bottle is reusable and reduced packaging has also been used. The 1 litre concentrate mixes with water to make up 4 litres and this concentrated form features Muc-Off’s Nano technology formula for deep cleaning. It’s also fully biodegradable, that’s free from acids, solvents and CFCs.
Ok, so if you're Mark Cavendish this might be a little lightweight... but for the rest of us who want a wheel-on trainer that's simple to assemble for aerobic training, the Unisky Fluid trainer looks like a bargain... we've certainly never seen a fluid trainer priced this low!
A fluid trainer uses fluid resistance to make the workout harder the tougher you pedal, so in theory there's no wattage limit. A dual locking system keeps your bike securely in place, and an aluminium roller should provide a relatively realistic experience while allowing you to get plenty of life out of your trainer tyre. Most 700c rim braked road bikes and 26-29" mountain bikes will fit, and you also get a riser block thrown in to steady and level things at the front. Add a cheap speed/cadence sensor and you're set up on Zwift for a fraction over 100 quid!
Be quick, this is a lightening deal that ends at 9.35pm!
Made from 100% natural merino wool this is a great addition for your winter cycling wardrobe. It’ll keep your neck and ears warm in the cold, and it’ll also wick away moisture to keep you cool. Merino is also super soft and the seamless stitching should reduce irritation. The natural fabric is also odour resistant.
The Explore is Garmin’s 3” touchscreen bike computer that has Garmin’s Cycle Maps preloaded with turn-by-turn navigation, as well as Trendline’s popularity for finding the most used on- and off-road routes. It can be paired with the Varia smart light system and the device has a claimed battery life of up to 12 hours.
These are very well made 100% waterproof gloves that breathe well. They’re touchscreen compatible and feature an anti-slip lining that’s designed to give you control while pretty much eliminating liner pull-out.
The open-ear design of these wireless headphones allows you to listen to music or podcasts as you ride without traffic noise being blocked out. The OpenMove is the brand’s accessible way of trying bone conduction headphones and reviewer Steve Williams found they’re light, effective and comfortable. The ergonomic wrapround design means should stay put and they work with helmets. The OpenMove also comes with a two-year warranty.
Looking to improve your indoor turbo riding experience? This is a powerful fan with an airflow of 19m³/min and a wind speed of 4.8m/s (about 11mph) at maximum capacity, and the 12 different speeds can be flipped between without getting off your bike thanks to the remote control.
Do you want to ride around virtual worlds such as Zwift on a big screen? Then an Apple TV is a great choice for getting set up for a high-quality viewing experience. Zwift recommends the 4K box because it has a faster processor for a smoother riding and racing experience.
This is Garmin’s premium chest heart rate strap that transmits heart rate data over Bluetooth Low Energy technology as well as ANT+. It has a battery life of around 3.5 years (with average use of 1 hour per day) and a removable heart module for washing the strap. A heart rate monitor is a useful training aid for tracking your effort level and the data can be seen on GPS devices as well as online training platforms such as Zwift.
It turns out this classic northern confectionery is the perfect fuel for endurance sports, and is a favourite of ultra cyclists, runners and mountaineers. If you want a minty, sugary kick for less this Prime day then a box of six chocolate-coated or original Kendal Mint Cake bars are both down to £6.39 from £7.99 for Prime members. There's also a huge 32% off KMC's chocolate mint-flavoured whey protein for optimal recovery (down to £16.99 from £24.99), and 25% off the Electrolyte Energy Drink Power (down to £14.99 from £19.99).
If you want to film your rides, then the Insta360 is a decent and fairly affordable option. With an IPX8 waterproof lens, touchscreen and voice control, it records in 4K and also has 'FlowState' tech, that promises to achieve "gimbal-like stabilisation without the gimbal".
While there's no Sold Secure rating on this, the reviews are mostly positive and you get both a D-lock and cable that a light-fingered passer-by would have to cut through - so it looks like a solid option if you need something to lock up your bike-to-work bike in a facility that is already reasonably secure.
If your disc brakes need a spruce up then according to off.road.cc reviewer Jim Clarkson, you needn't look past this biodegradable can of cleaning magic from Peaty's. Jim says: "This stubby little 400ml can packs an effective punch of quick-drying solvent which really cleans away muck. One blast takes away a lot of the oils or grease, and a second spray clears almost everything."
Better stock up while it's only six quid a can!

Be quick, this is a lightening offer than ends at 9.45pm!

You also get four modes on the front and six on the rear with various levels of steady or flashing lighting depending on how you want to be seen.
Anna has been hooked on bikes ever since her youthful beginnings at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit. As an avid road and track racer, she reached the heady heights of a ProCyclingStats profile before leaving for university. Having now completed an MA in Multimedia Journalism, she’s hoping to add some (more successful) results. Although her greatest wish is for the broader acceptance of wearing funky cycling socks over the top of leg warmers.
