Massive cycling deals in Trek & Bontrager’s DealCatcher Takeover

A great range of 2016 road bike bargains, and some summer clothing deals in a Takeover of gigantic proportions

Trek and Bontrager are back to share the spoils hidden in the pages of their shiny new website with you today; there are some tasty looking bargains to be had too.

We kick things off with three bikes from Trek's "lightest production road line ever" the Emonda series. Trek's Emondas have been kicking around since half way through 2014, and we've liked what we've seen so far, especially amongst their 2016 range.

Once you've flicked through the Emondas there are two smashing deals on Trek's Crossrip cyclocross-ready bikes. They're fun, fast, and ready for almost any road surface that lies between you and your office, or you and the finish line of a muddy race course.

A summery Bontrager Starvos jersey follows the list of bikes, with a helmet of the same name closing the DealCatcher for the day.

There are plenty more bargains to be had amongst the rest of Trek and Bontrager's sale items, and you can find them all by following the link below:

Enjoy the deals!


15% off Trek's Emonda S 6
WAS £1500.00 | NOW £1300.00

Trek Emonda_S_6.jpg

First up on the list of lightweight carbon Emondas is the most expensive of the range: the Emonda S 6.

Running a full Shimano Ultegra groupset, the Emonda S 6 offers some pretty great value.

The wheels are Bontrager's Tubeless Ready alloys, the frame is Trek's Ultralight 300 Series OCLV Carbon with a tapered head tube, there's an Emonda carbon fork, and a Bontrager Paradigm saddle.

The whole setup weighs in at 8.72kg for the 56cm model, which is mouthwateringly light for a bike that's just £300 over that £1000 mark.


15% off Trek's Emonda S 5
WASA £1300.00 | NOW £1100.00

Trek Emonda_S_5.jpg

We're going in descending order here both in price, and Emonda hierarchy.

The S 5 features the same Ultralight 300 Series carbon frame as its bigger brother, the same Bontrager wheels, and the same Bontrager Paradigm saddle. The difference lies in the groupset.

Shimano once again, however this time one step on the ladder lower with their 105 11-speed groupset.

Don't take that as a negative though. We loved the 105 groupset.

15% off Trek's Emonda S 4 Women's Road Bike
WAS £1100.00 | NOW £950.00

Trek Emonda_S_4 Womens Bike.jpg

The Emonda range isn't a man's-only range, oh no. There are women's models, of course, like the S 4 here.

The differences lie in the women specific geometry, access to smaller sizes, and Bontrager's Ajna pro carbon women's saddle.

As the S 4 is once again another price point lower on the ladder you'll be getting Shimano's 10-speed Tiagra groupset.

Once again, a groupset worth less doesn't necessarily mean you'll be getting a substandard riding experience. Our tech editor Dave Arthur reviewed the Tiagra set and said it was "a big step forward for Tiagra" and that if you were buying a bike with Tiagra you absolutely won't be disappointed. 


10% off Trek's Crossrip Elite
WAS £950.00 | NOW £800.00

Onto the cyclocross bikes.

As you'd expect with bikes that are cyclocross ready the Crossrip Elite offers tubeless ready wheels, disc brakes, and internal cabling - the holy trinity for happy and messy riding.

The frame is 100 Series Alpha Aluminium that comes with rack and mudguard mounts for those of you who are looking at this as a commuting machine.

Bontrager's Tubeless Ready rims with Formula DC20 alloy hubs and Bontrager's H5 Hard-Case Ultimate 32mm tyres will keep you rolling.

All of this is topped off with Shimano's excellent 9-speed Sora groupset.


15% off Trek's Crossrip Comp
WAS £800.00 | NOW £675.00

Trek CrossRip_Comp.jpg

For a little bit less money than the Elite, the Crossrip Comp offers a very similar outlook.

Just like the Emonda series above, moving a step down in the Crossrip heirarchy doesn't change a great deal.

You'll be getting the same aluminium frame, Bontrager wheels and tyres, and Bontrager Evoke saddle, except this time Shimano's 8-speed Claris groupset will keep things ticking over.


25% off Bontrager's Starvos Jersey - White/Red
WAS £39.99 | NOW £29.99

Bontrager Starvos_Jersey.jpg

Away from big metal geard things, and onto some clothing to help see you through these warmer months.

Strangely, only the most summer-friendly design - the white and red one - has seen a discount over on the Trek website, but we're not complaining.

It's not just the colour scheme that makes this a great summer jersey option.

Profila Dry fabric, and Profila Cool mesh panels, will help keep you ventilated and wick any excess sweat or moisture away to make sure you're nice and cool.

There's a full zip to give you the option of upping the ventilation stakes massively should you hit a particularly hot patch.

The semi fitted cut should keep you cool by aiding the ventilation process by allowing the air inside the top to move, and the reflective details will keep you safe if you stay out a little past dark.


35% off Bontrager's Starvos Helmet - Black/Blue
WAS £49.99 | NOW £32.50

Bontrager Starvos Helmet.jpgFinally Bontrager's racey Starvos helmet's the last deal of the day.

It's got plenty of ventilation points so your head should stay nice and ventilated on hot days, and with Bontrager's Headmaster fit adjustment system you'll be able to keep your helmet comfortable while you're on the go using only one hand.

It's only available at this price in black and blue, but we like those colours, so that's okay.

The helmet also falls into Bontrager's Crash Replacement Guarantee scheme, which is a bloody brilliant initiative.
