Have you been pinching the pennies over the last couple of months in anticipation for the big November spending spree that Black Friday has become?

Several of us here at road.cc HQ have been doing just that, which makes today's first foray into the world of Black Friday cycling deals - courtesy of Chain Reaction Cycles' Big Black Friday Sale - all the more exciting. The deals are here, and it seems that they're here to stay for the next month. And, you'll be pleased to know that they've started off strongly.

Chain Reaction Cycles have got a huge amount of deals available in their first week of Black Friday offers, so you should get on the case fast if you want to make the most of these opportunity.

The stock is limited and these prices will only last until next Thursday, so don't spend too long ruminating! 

If you want even more succulent Black Friday sales, you're in the right place. Strap yourselves in and keep your eyes peeled, because we're only just getting started here!

But, if the Black Friday-specific deals aren't giving you exactly what you're looking for, why not head over to our cycling deal-specific sister site, the Deal Clincher, to check out even more fantastic cycling deals?

 

Bikes

27% off Vitus Bikes' 2017 Razor VR Road Bike
WAS £549.99 | NOW £399.99

Vitus Razor VR.png

First up in this Big Black Friday Deal Bonanza is Vitus's excellent Razor VR.

At this price it fits into the first road bike category for those of you who are looking to take your first pedal stroke into the wonderful world of cycling.

It's not just the price that makes it perfect for newcomers to the road scene. Our man Stu Kerton put the Razor VR through its paces, and he said it makes the "ideal first road bike."

Even at the full price of £549.99, Stu said that the Razor's alloy frame, carbon fork and Shimano Sora groupset stack up to serious value, so at this price it's incredible value.

Stu also says that the bike could easily make a speedy commuter if you fit it with a pair of mudguards. So, those of you looking for a cheap bike to take you through the winter months, here's your chance!

Clothing

50% off Endura's Windchill II Jacket SS17
WAS £89.99 | NOW £44.99

Endura Windchill II Jacket.png

The weather's taken a turn over the last couple of weeks, right? For the most part, the rain's held off, which will probably continue to be the case if our last couple of winters are anything to go by.

But no rain doesn't mean trouble free, comfortable rides. The wind'll sneak up on you if you're out for a considerable amount of time, so a jacket that'll take that chill off is an absolute must.

Enter the Endura Windchill II Jacket. 

Decent protection against the elements usually comes at a cost; not, it seems, when it comes to Endura products though.

While we don't have a review here on road.cc of the Windchill jacket, we have put the Windchill Biblong bibtights through their paces. Our man Shaun Audane gave those an 8/10 and said the panels designed to keep out the wind did a really good job.

So, by that logic, the same technology should provide ample protection here.

50% off Endura's FS260-Pro SL Classic Jersey
WAS £149.99 | NOW £74.99

Endura FS260-Pro Jersey.png

Endura's FS260-Pro range is exceptional. As a frame of reference, the range's shell jacket got an incredibly rare road.cc 10/10.

Our man Mike Stead gave that item its review, and called the jacket "superbly waterproof and breathable." You can read that review below, but the reason we're flagging it up is because is shows exactly what this range from Endura can do.

Here, we haven't got a waterproof, rather we have an all-weather-ready jersey that'll protect you from the wind, rain, and cold.

The FS260-Pro SL Classic Jersey is designed to see riders through the toughest races of the year - the Spring Classics - which can often be windswept, sodden affairs; so they should see you through the winter months without too much trouble.

50% off MET's 2017 Rivale Helmet
WAS £120.00 | NOW £59.99

MET Rivale Helmet.png

Helmets are always a tough investment to make. Knowing that you're one crash away from your expensive lid ending up in the bin makes investing in a top class helmet pretty tough.

Fortunately, on days like today, that decision is a lot easier to make.

MET's Rivale Helmet is a "well thought-out helmet" that, according to our reviewer George Hill, "combines an aero design with good innovative elements."

Those elements are an adjustable rear cradle for added comfort potential, a micro-adjustable dial for even more comfort, and the Safe-T Advanced fitting system that ensures that the helmet's fit is snug the whole way around your head.

At £60, this really is incredible value.

Components

45% off Zipp's Service Course Road Stem
WAS £48.99 | NOW £26.99

Zipp Service Course Stem.png

The Zipp Service Course Stem has already spent some time here on the road.cc review desk; and on our review bikes as well, of course.

Specifically, the slightly more expensive SL stem was the one that graced our man Dave Atkinson's bike; and he liked what he saw.

Certainly the price was a bit off-putting, but the build quality, hardware and weight all got big ticks from Mr Atkinson.

Other than the price - which is incredibly low here - the biggest difference in the slightly cheaper stem here is the weight. Still, at 150g this stem is hardly a heffer.

33% off Shimano's Ultegra BR-6403 Brake Blocks
WAS £11.99 | NOW £7.99

Shimano Ultegra Brake Blocks.png

Without even looking at your bike you'll probably agree with us right now when we tell you that it's probably time you changed your brake pads.

We're right, aren't we?

If you're anything like most of us here at road.cc, it's been quite some time since you replaced your caliper brake pads.

Here's your chance to get some elite level pads at entry level prices.

 

Maintenance

28% off Muc-Off's CRC Exclusive Pro Cleaning Kit
WAS £60.00 | NOW £42.99

Muc-Off Pro Cleaning Kit.png

Wow. This is quite the bundle.

Exclusive to Chain Reaction Cycles during this Black Friday sale, this collection of Muc-Off goodies features a huge array of bits that'll keep your ride looking fly.

Muc-Off's familair pink Nano Tech Bike Cleaner is the first item that'll catch your eye, but alongside that you'll be getting, Muc-Off's Drive Chain Cleaner, Wet Lube, a Claw Brush, Detailing Brush, Soft Washing Brush, and Wheel & Component Brush, plus a Premium Microfibre Polishing Cloth, Expanding Sponge, Bike Mat, and a Parts Washer/Storage Tool Box.

 

50% off X-Tools' 37-Piece Bike Tool Kit
WAS £69.99 | NOW £34.99

X-Tools Bike Tool Kit.png

From cleaning kit to fettling kit. This DealCatcher Takeover's got the lot!

Unlike the bundle above, the 32 pieces in this kit are probably too many to list out. However, the important items, such as a chain rivet extractor, several double ended spanners of different sizes, a spoke key ring, a bolt and socket set, and a ball-ended allen key set should give you everything you need to keep your bike in tip top condition.

Plus, we like the X-Tools toolkits; check out our review below.

44% off Chain Reaction Cycles' Pro Bike Bag

Chain Reaction Cycles Pro Bike Bag.png

Our final deal today is Chain Reaction Cycles' Pro Bike Bag.

Now, this one hasn't been put through the rigerous road.cc review proceedures, but it did catch our eye enough to make it into our Best Bike Bags list.
