We're sifting through a mixed bag of weather at the moment, as we've grown to expect at this time of year. But there are bright spots; days that remind you that summer's not too far away. It's for those bright spots that the DealCatcher's bringing you today's deals.
Even if we overlook the summer-specific Bontrager jersey - and the rest of Evans Cycles' Bontrager bargains - the DealCatcher's got a summery feel to it today.
Boardman's all white Elite SLS 9.0 looks a whole lot more at home on clean, dry, summery roads than it does on mucky wintry ones.
And while Reynolds premium Stratus Pro Wheelset isn't technically summery, it'll make you feel fresh and springy with its 31% discount and extra 10%-off coupon code.
32% off Boardman's Elite SLS 9.0 FI Road Bike
WAS £1799.99 | NOW £1229.99
In our opening paragraph we did the Elite SLS 9.0 a disservice, talking about its looks is belittling the fantastic value and craftsmanship in its carbon fibre framed form.
The Elite SLS 9.0 is an endurance road bike that focuses on speed and comfort - elements that are evident in the 'female-informed' racing geometry, shock absorbing seat stays, and one piece carbon bottom bracket and chainstays that provide maximised power transfer.
The bike is kitted out with Shimano's full 105 groupset, Mavic's Aksium wheelset, Continental Ultra Race tyres, and a Fizik Vesta saddle.
For just over £1200 the Elite SLS offers almost unbeatable value.
45% off Bontrager's RXL Summer Short Sleeve Jersey
WAS £69.99 | NOW £37.99
Summer is fast approaching. We've spotted a few of you out there in short sleeves already on our #mycyclingweekend feed, so don't start telling us that it's too early to start thinking about summer kit!
This jersey from Bontrager is part of Evans Cycles' enormous Bontrager sale. There are all sorts of bits of kit available for bargain prices - you can find the lot by following this link here.
We've targetted the RXL Summer Short Sleeve Jersey, not only because it's seen one of the biggest price reductions of the lot, but because you'll get more and more value out of it over the coming weeks. It'd be terribly pessimistic of us to tell you to invest in a thermal jacket right now!
We know you'll get great value out of the RXL jersey, because we tested it ourselves.
I say we, what I mean is: Mat. Our tech editor Mat Brett took to the roads in the jersey and said that it "shifts sweat well and dries super fast," he also added that it "becomes more valuable as the temperatures rise."
Which is exactly what we hope they'll be doing in the coming weeks.
31% off Reynolds Stratus Pro Wheelset
WAS £649.99 | NOW £449.99
Finally, the least seasonal member of today's DealCatcher.
The Reynolds Stratus Pro Wheelset is Reynold's premium alumnium road racing wheelset, and it shows.
The excellent sub-1.5kg weight, laced alloy rims, versatility, and fantastic aerodynamic profile mean that for this £450 price tag, you're getting a lot of wheel for not a lot of money.
We reviewed a set of disc brake compatible Stratus Pros back in January - our man Iwein called them "light, nippy, and solidly built."
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.
