Great cycling deals from Specialized, Giro, and Moda

48% off Moda's carbon race machine, 50% off our favourite Giro socks, & a bargain adventure bike...

If you're reading this we can fairly safely assume you're a cyclist. While we're at the assuming game, we reckon it's a fairly safe assumption that the majority of you who love cycling also love bikes and socks.

If we've hit the nail on the head you're going to love the goodies that the DealCatcher's got for you today!

A pair of Giro socks which made the list of our favourite cycling socks feature in today's piece; they've been given the 50%-off treatment by Cycle Surgery.

The DealCatcher's also been on the look out for bike deals, as always, and has come away with a slamming deal from Specialized on their Diverge Elite adventure bike over at BuyaBike, and an enormous saving in Moda's Molto carbon race machine from the guys at ProBikeKit.

 

 

ProBikeKit

48% off Moda Molto Carbon Road Bike
WAS £1999.99 | NOW £1049.99

When asked to describe the Molto in one sentence, Moda came up with this:

"A race bike pure and simple, light, fast, agile, precise and addictive"

While we haven't tested the Molto and can't attest to the truth behind the addictive nature of this full carbon race machine, we can have a look at the value ProBikeKit are offering in this hugely discounted package.

The bike's deep rimmed American Classic 30 wheelset certainly set a racing tone, while the full carbon frame and SRAM Rival 10-speed groupset leave the whole set-up weighing a reasonable 7.6kg.

This is a seriously solid racing buy for a touch over £1000. At a close-to 50% discount it's a bargain you might be regretting overlooking come spring.

 

 

BuyaBike

20% off Specialized Diverge Elite A1 2015
WAS £1,100.00 | NOW £880.00

Adventure bikes appear in that gap in the market between a cyclocross bike and an endurance set-up. Where cyclocross bikes are a bit too racey, and endurance bikes can't quite cut it through the rougher weather and bumpier terrain, adventure bikes tick all the boxes.

Disc brakes, big tyre clearance and geometry honed to excel both on the road and off, are staples of the adventure bike breed, and the Specialized Diverge Elite has the lot.

Adventure bikes' adaptability, versatility and ruggedness make them perfect commuter bikes, touring or audax bikes, and great winter training bike.

The Diverge runs mechanical disc brakes, a 10-speed Shimano Tiagra groupset, AXIS Classic Disc Wheels, and Specialized Espoir Sport 700x30c tyres.

 

 

Cycle Surgery

50% off Giro Coolmax Highrise Sock
WAS £13.99 | NOW £6.99

If you're anything like us, you're pretty into socks. All of us here at road.cc are literally in them right now, there are even a couple of road.cc cycling socks making their way across the office floor as we speak.

Socks are such a big deal to us, we compiled a best-of list earlier this year. Our socks feature on that list, obviously, but these Giro High Rise socks also feature.

The High Rise's darker colour make them your perfect poor weather partner, and their polyester, lycra, and elastic fabric mix make them a comfortable wear for long days in the saddle.

And, as far as cycling socks go, they're pretty darn cheap.
