The gear goes on sale next Thursday, May 1 and among other bargain basement priced items are the following: Coolmax shorts are priced at an impressive £4.99 and are available in lycra or woven, with an antibacterial seat pad, grip elastic on the legs and reflective prints for safety. The woven shorts have the added bonus of a removable inner slip and are available in black from sizes small to large for women and sizes small to extra large for men.
If it’s a pair of cheap bib shorts you’re after then the £6.99 bibs with antibacterial seat pad, grip elastic or silicone binding on the hem with reflective striping for safety at night might be just what you’re after.
For cooler mornings the £5.99 unisex gilet is an ideal ‘keep-in-your-bag-til-it’s-needed’ item. It’s windproof and water repellent with reflective piping and mesh panelling for breathability. Sizes: small to extra large. Colours: pink, royal/black, red/black and black.
If the gilet isn’t enough then the jacket at £9.99 isn’t going to break the bank either. It is breathable, waterproof and available in sizes small to extra large and in a selection of colours including pink/black for women and royal/black, black/red, orange/black for men. All the jackets are finished with reflective details for safety.
The short-sleeved shirt is made from breathable fabric, featuring a zip neck and reflective piping. Available in sizes small to extra large, in a selection of colours including pink for women and orange/white/black/, white/black/red and royal/white/black print for men. It’s priced at £4.99.
Aldi will also have many cycling accessories and essentials, including lightweight cotton cycling socks at £2.49 per pair, cycling gloves at £2.99 per pair and cycling underwear at £3.99.
We’ve asked for some equipment samples from our friends at Aldi and hope to do some head-to-head comparisons with their Lidl equivalents.
