Three cracking deals from the DealCatcher - Bont's new Vapours at 30% off, Genesis' Croix de Fer & Defeet socks!...

Welcome the DealCatcher into your life this Thursday afternoon and he will reward you with cycling treasures galore.

Well, three cycling treasures today which come in the shape of brand new Bont cycling shoes, Genesis' 2015 Croix de Fer, and a pair of DeFeet's Levitator cycling socks.

The Bont shoes come from Wiggle and are currently discounted at 30%, which is huge for such a highly rated pair of this season's shoes.

Secondly is Genesis' stunning do-it-all Croix de Fer road bike. We had the 2014 incarnation in for test a couple of years back, and we loved it. The 2015 edition was an upgrade, and is now sitting pretty at a 17% discount over at Leisure Lakes.

Finally, you can get your hands - or feet - in or on a pair of Defeet's Levitator Lite cycling socks for 30% less than normal on Vanilla Bikes' website. We reviewed these too, and came to the conclusion that they're perfect for your feet while the temperatures are on the rise - which is around now.

First up, Bont's Vapor S cycling shoes. 

Classic design, lightweight, breathable, highly adjustable, and very stiff; the Bont Vaypors are designed for speed and comfort, and they tick all of the boxes in both of those departments.

We reviewed Bont's previous iteration of their Vaypor racing shoes, and our man Mat Brett called them "perfectly comfortable," and "the most rigid [shoe's he's] ever used."

Perfect for performance, and aided in the comfort department by Bont's heat mould technology which allows you to create a highly adjustable custom fit.

Also, in case you needed any more confirmation of Bont's quality, Sir Bradley Wiggins wore Bonts on his way to his 2012 Tour de France title.

If you're after a do-it-all road bike, one that'll take you to and from the office, on Sunday club runs, and over mountains on your cycling holidays, you can do a lot worse than Genesis' Croix de Fer.

Hell, this bike went around the world in record time - or at least it's 2010 model brother did - so it'll certainly give your top mid-commute Strava segment a run for its money.

Our man Iwein Dekoninck reviewed the previous, much darker, 2014 edition of the Croix de Fer and loved it. The bike rolled away with a road.cc 9/10 review score pinned to its handlebars, which we imagine it has worn proudly ever since.

For the very reasonable outlay of £999.99 you'll be getting a Reynolds 725 chromoly steel frame, THP HyRd disc brakes, and Shimano's Tiagra rear derailleur with an 11-32 tooth cassette.

Finally, we should move onto your feet.

Let's face it, your toes are going to be facing some drastically different conditions over the next few months to the ones they've faced over the last few.

You're going to have to tuck those thermals socks away for a while, they'll be no good once the sun starts to shine.

If you're anything like us here at road.cc, the winter period or your washing machine will have done a number on your sock collection, leaving you with distinctly fewer summer cycling socks than you had in September.

So, it might be time to invest.

Look no further than Defeet's Levtitator Lites, especially at this price.

Our tech editor Mat Brett took these out for a fair number of review rides. Those rides concluded in the review that you can read below. There you'll learn that the Levitators will do what they say on the tin, which is "keep your feet feeling cool in hot weather."

Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.

Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.

When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
