BikeRadar’s favourite Black Friday deals of 2020

Jack Luke | WTB Exposure 30mm tyre — £44.99 £35

30mm WTB Exposure tyre
The WTB Exposure it Jack’s favourite road tyre – and it’s discounted for Black Friday.
Laura Dow

The 30mm-wide WTB Exposure is my favourite road tyre (I gave it a full five stars in my review) – it strikes a superb balance between comfort, rolling resistance and durability in the rarely-found but exceptionally useful 30mm width.

Better still, it’s available with a 22 per cent saving at Wiggle this Black Friday.

George Scott | Tacx Neo 2T smart trainer – £1,199 £1,150

Get ready for winter with the Tacx Neo 2T smart trainer.

It’s officially turbo trainer season and the Tacx Neo is one of the best smart trainers out there. I’ve used the original Neo for a few years now and it’s a seriously impressive piece of kit – super-stable, near-silent and the ride quality is as close to being on the road as you’re going to get. The Neo 2T is the latest version and scored 4.5 stars in our review.
Turbo trainer deals are few and far between this Black Friday – with smart trainers in high demand due to coronavirus lockdowns and the increasing popularity of indoor cycling apps such as Zwift, retailers quite frankly don’t need to offer a discount – so this deal from ProBikeKit caught my eye.
It’s a relatively small discount, with $70 off in the US and £50 in the UK, but a decent saving nonetheless and the cheapest deal we can find. Put the money towards a Zwift subscription and you’ll be ready to go through winter.
ProBikeKit is also offering money off the Saris H3 (now $1024.49 / £799.99).

Oli Woodman | Lezyne Laser Drive 250 rear light — £58 £39.99

The Lezyne Laser Drive is a quality rear light.

Ever since my colleague, Jack Luke, gave me his old Lezyne Laser Drive 250 rear light several years ago, I’ve put it to good use.

This well-designed, tough and seriously bright USB-rechargeable rear light projects a laser beam either side of the rider.

Its disruptive 40-lumen output and decent battery life help me ride with confidence on the roads.

The design is getting on a bit now, but at this discount, the Laser Driver 250 is a cracking purchase.

Matthew Loveridge | Continental Grand Prix 5000 Tubeless Twin Pack – £139.98 £79.99

Continental
The GP5000 TL is one of our favorite tubeless road tyres.

The GP5000 is one of our favourite tyres for good reason – it’s fast, grippy and puncture resistant.

The tubeless version scored 4.5/5 stars when we tested it and it remains one of our top picks for an all-rounder tyre.

The weight is respectable at a little over 300g for a 28mm tyre, and it offers all the best qualities of the standard clincher.

This twin pack is a worthwhile upgrade for any road bike.

Rob Spedding | Castelli Velocissimo ROS Jacket AW20 £190 £133

This Castelli jacket uses tried-and-tested Gore-Tex fabrics and comes with a substantial discount.

Castelli’s Velocissimo jacket combines Gore-Tex’s tried-and-tested Windstopper fabric with Castelli’s own breathable, water-repellent and stretchy Nano Flex material.

The result is a multi-season jacket that is windproof, breathable and water-resistant.

It’s available from Chain Reaction Cycles with a 30 per cent discount.

Felix Smith | Stan’s No Tubes sealant (473ml) £18 £15.85

Whether you’re thinking about going tubeless or are already setup, you’ll need sealant.

Going tubeless can be a really nice upgrade and has a number of benefits, including fewer punctures and more comfort.

What’s not so great? Sub-par sealant that doesn’t plug cuts in your tyres before they turn into punctures.

I’ve found Stans sealant to be really reliable, both in terms of tubeless setup and keeping your tyres inflated.

It’s always recommended to keep the sealant in your tyres topped up and I also carry a small bottle of the stuff with me on rides, instead of a spare tube.

Stocking up in bulk with a bottle like the one in this offer gives me no reason to run out.
