Boxing Day sales at Chain Reaction Cycles

Get your hands on some early sales from Chain Reaction - also, £10 off your bill if you spend over £75

You're Christmas ready, right? Your presents are wrapped and safely stowed away under the tree, which means you can start drinking mulled wine, dancing around the house to Christmas songs, and exploring the early boxing day sales.

While we can't provide you with wine or Christmas music from our South West recluse in road.cc Towers, we can point you in the direction of some excellent Boxing Day sales - starting with Chain Reaction Cycles.

Two bargain wheelsets, two jerseys, and a jacket feature in this deal round-up, plus if you spend over £75 on sale items and use the code 'SALEJAN' you'll get a tenner off your bill.

 

35% off Easton EA90 SL Road Wheelset
WAS £759.99 | NOW £493.98

The Easton EA90 SLs are a stiff, lightweight wheelset which could be the perfect addition to your bike build as you roll into 2016.

For the full set you're looking at 1,580g, which is more than reasonable considering these wheels are tubeless ready.

At 17.5mm for the internal width, the wheels are wide, but not hugely so considering the growing trend for wider wheels. They also offer fantastic stiffness which gives them a true roll, especially when you compare them to other similarly priced wheels.

 

35% off Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset
WAS £329.99 | NOW £214.99

When we review anything on road.cc we don't just take into consideration each product's performance, we look at their position in the market and the price point.

So, when a product like the the Shimano Ultegra 6800 wheelset passes across the DealCatcher's desk over £100 cheaper than they were when they received an 8/10 review on road.cc they're an automatic inclusion in the deal round-up.

Our man Dave Atkinson reviewed these and said that they're "good all-round wheels for training and racing. They're strong, and tubeless-ready."

 He also said that at their RRP they'd be "a decent upgrade to the stock wheels on a mid-level road bike." So, surely at this price they're a no-brainer if you're looking to upgrade.

 

30% off Castelli Free 3 Jacket
WAS £175.00 | NOW £122.99

We've not really seen the worst that winter usually has to offer in terms of riding conditions, and at this point can we really be sure that any investment in super cold gear is going to be worthwhile?

This Castelli Free 3 Jacket will keep you warm in all autumnal and early winter conditions, which appear to be the conditions that we'll be riding in for the foreseeable.

The silicon waist gripper will prevent any unwanted midriff exposure,  and the Windstopper X fabric will protect you from any stiff January breezes.

 

20% off Castelli Free 3 Jersey
WAS £90.00 | NOW £71.99

With another eye on warmth, but without any thermal obsessions you'd expect to see in kit you'd normally be looking at at this time of year.

Similarly to the Free 3 Jacket above, this jersey features silicon grippers at the base to protect you from unwelcome under-jersey breezes.

The implementation of Warmer X-Stretch fabric on the sleeves and back panels is geared towards insulation and warmth in a way that most stretch fabrics aren't.  

 

 

20% off Sportful Fiandre Light NoRain Jersey
WAS £100.00 | NOW £79.99

Finally, if you're looking for something to keep the relentless rain away from your skin in the new year, this Sportful Fiandre jersey could be just the ticket.

We reviewed the NoRain's sibling, the Sportful Fiandre Light Wind Jersey back in January, and tech editor Dave Arthur loved it.

A 9/10 and a fantastic review leads us to put a fair amount of trust in Sportful's anti-rain offering.

At £80, plus the extra £10 off if you use the SALEJAN code, you're looking at a slamming deal.
