The Black Friday train is starting to pick up speed, and as we showed you last week there are some tasty early deals to be had ahead of the big day itself.


We’ve rounded up three more incredible deals to whet your appetite, but be sure to check out Wiggle’s own Black Friday bike deals page, as there’s plenty more offers where these came from.

Rapha Overmitts – £90 £22.50

Rapha lobster claw overmitts
Lobster claw overmitts are ideal if you suffer from cold hands.

If you suffer terribly from cold hands during long winter rides, then a pair of lobster claw over-gloves – gloves you wear over another pair of thermal gloves – can be a godsend, especially if they’re available at 75% off RRP.

Originally developed in 2013, in conjunction with what was then Team Sky, the Rapha Overmitts are claimed to be waterproof, insulated and have reflective details to maximise visibility.

The material covering the middle fingers can also be folded back to allow for easy phone use or pocket searching.

7Mesh Northwood Jacket – £200 £80

7Mesh North Jacket Blue
The 7Mesh Northwood Jacket is windproof yet highly breathable.

We’re big fans of 7Mesh here at BikeRadar, with the Canadian company’s apparel regularly impressing our expert testers. Our only criticisms tend to surround the relatively high prices – so at 60% off, the Northwood Jacket looks to be a serious bargain.

Made from Taku Ripstop fabric, it’s pitched as an ultra-breathable windproof jacket. And at a claimed weight of just 100g, it could be a great packable layer for road or MTB use.

Shimano XT M8000 2×11 Groupset – £499.99 £239.99

Shimano XT M8000 2x11 Groupset
Shimano’s XT M8000 groupset is a great value, workhorse groupset for MTB’s.

We gave Shimano’s XT M8000 groupset a healthy 4 out of 5 stars when we reviewed it back in 2017, saying it’s a collection of ‘refined workhorse components to suit all riders’.

So if your mountain bike drivetrain has seen better days but you don’t have loads to spend, now could be a great time to give your frame a refresh before you head back out on the trails.

Castelli Gabba 3 RS short sleeve jersey
The Gabba is a go-to option for many riders during inclement climes.

You can now have this versatility with a healthy 50 per cent off at Wiggle. Remember, this is the new Gabba launched just last month. Just in time for winter!

The Tacx Neo 2T is one of the best options if you want a smart trainer with a natural ride feel and don’t plan to be spending that much time outdoors over the winter.

Power measurement is dependable and consistent, so you’ll be able to keep up with your training and stats. With the discount featured here, the cost also (almost) becomes a lot more palatable.
