Great Chain Reaction Cycles Cycling Deals

De Rosa, Elite, Fizik, Northwave, Continental & more great brands feature in today's DealCatcher Takeover...

The DealCatcher's back with some more stonking deals from Chain Reaction Cycles. Blue Monday's been and gone, there are only a few days of January left, so why not look forward to a little cycling something in the post?

There are some great offers over at CRC, from bikes, like De Rosa's Planet Di2 road bike, to a Northwave Jet Jacket and more.

There's plenty for everyone, no matter what kind of riding you do, so why not dive right in?

 

43% off De Rosa's Planet Di2 Road Bike
WAS £4199.99 | NOW £2399.99

De Rosa's carbon fibre Planet road bike offers "the ultimate in performance, comfort and style," according to De Rosa.

Of course, like parents, bike makers are bound to be proud of their bikes, but we can vouch for De Rosa and its ability to make good bikes.

This beauty rolls on Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels, and carries Shimano's excellent Ultegra 6870 Di2 groupset, and while the last De Rosa we had in carried Campag, the set up was all aboard a very similar frame.

The Idol performed excellently on test, and with a 43% discount, the Planet looks like quite a steal.

50% off Elite's SuperCrono Power Mag Turbo Trainer
WAS £219.99 | NOW £109.49

Elite's SuperCrono ElastoGel turbo trainer houses eight resistance levels, a handlebar-mounted lever, is easy to set up and stores away flatly and discreatly.

We took a look at Elite's excellent range of winter training gear in the piece below, but with a couple of months of freezing weather ahead, now's as good of a time as any to invest in something to see you through them.

67% off Kali's Loka Helmet
WAS £89.99 | NOW £29.99

When the roads are as icy as they have been recently, we imagine even those of you who are most staunchly against helmets will be wondering a little about cranium protection.

If that's you, why not just pick one up just in case? Alternatively, those of you who are looking for an upgrade or a replacement helmet, the Kali Loka's an excellent option.

 

60% off Fizik's Kurve Aluminium Saddle
WAS £189.99 | NOW £75.49

Fizik Kurve Aluminium Saddle.png

We're not overly generous with 9/10s here at road.cc, so when a saddle meets the stringent requirements to get such a high mark, most of us sit up and listen.

Fizik's Kurve saddle is the comfiest racing saddle our reviewer Stu Kerton has ever used.

He originally baulked at the price, but we doubt he would following its 60% discount at CRC this week.

43% off Northwave's Jet Jacket
WAS £34.99 | NOW £19.99

Northwave Jet Jacket.png

Northwave do great shower-proof jacket and the Jet is no exception.

While we haven't reviewed this particular model, we did take the Acqua Pro Rainshield out for review, and our man Stu Kerton loved it.

The Jet is slightly less packable, but it's more substantial which suits this time of year. Taking a jacket out on a ride with you is an excellent option at this time of year when surprise rain can be super uncomfortable, so check it out.

57% off Northwave's Women's Vitamin Shoes
WAS £149.99 | NOW £64.99

Northwave Vitamin Womens Road Shoes.png

Bargain shoes is the focus of the next two deals here.

Despite the differing naming schemes, these shoes are very close siblings. Both the Women's Vitamin Northwave shoes and the men's Torpedo SRS shoes feature the brand's Carbon Light sole that provides excellent comfort and power transfer.

Obviously they're light too.

The women's shoe though features an SLW2 crank closing system and a single velcro strap...

 

57% off Northwave's Torpedo SRS Shoes
WAS £149.99 | NOW £64.99

The men's shoe meanwhile features an SRS micrometric buckle and two velcro straps.

 

53% off Continental Ultra Sport Tyre
WAS £17.95 | NOW £8.49

Continental Ultra Sport White Tyre.png

If you're after a quality tyre with a little customisable twist, the Continental Ultra tyre should be right up your street.

Unfortunately it's only available in white over at CRC right now, but if white's your thing, then snap 'em up.

They're a bargain at £8.49 after all.

 

71% off Blackburn's Mars Click Rear Light
WAS £12.99 | NOW £3.74

Finally, if you're after a new rear light that you can keep in your desk at work, why not invest in a couple of these beauties from Blackburn.

There's no groundbreaking technology, but this light'll keep you seen and safe.
