Fancy something more than a chocolate egg this Easter? How does dhb, De Rosa, Shimano, Campagnolo, and Catlike gear sound?

Your bodies may take a chocolate-related knock-back this weekend, but there's no reason your cycling wardrobes and bikes need to take a hit too!

This weekend's Easter sale over at Wiggle will give you plenty of options for marginal gains in your cycling gear that'll make up for those extra pounds you'll inevitably put on over the weekend.

With pretty substantial discounts on bikes, clothing, groupsets and wheels, you're bound to find something to help you go a little faster or a little mor comfortable.

Alternatively, you could just dive in and check out the full range of discounts yourselves.

Sitting pretty on a road.cc 9/10 review, Catlike's Mixino Helmet 

Our man George Hill called it a "very good helmet, especially if you're looking for maximum ventilation."

When we were talking about marginal gains earlier in this piece we had bits of gear like this in mind.

If you're after a pair of pro-level bib shorts for a ridiculously reasonable price, look no further.

Our esteemed reviewer Stu Kerton put the non-April shower Rain Defence-ready Aeron shorts through their paces last year and gave them an incredible 9/10.

25% off dhb's Merino Long Sleeve Base Layer
WAS £40.00 | NOW £30.00

dhb-Merino-Long-Sleeve-Base-Layer.jpg

Don't believe the recent good weather. It's not yet time to bury your base layers.

Certainly, the major freezes are behind us, but we're bound to have a couple of cold snaps before summer proper is upon us.

Also, they're incredibly useful bits of gear for all sorts of weather conditions and sports - not just cycling.

 

22% off Campagnolo's Zonda C17 Wheelset
WAS £439.99 | NOW £339.99

Campag Zonda C17 wheelset.jpg

Our final deal in this Easter bonanza is Campagnolo's Zonda C17 wheelset.

No, they're not the ultra lightweight wheels that the pros roll on, but they no slouches.

The slightly wider rims and aerodynamic shape reduce rolling resistance and drag while remaining comfortable.
