It may not be the first place you’d think to shop for a new bike, but Go Outdoors has a wide range of machines available at very reasonable prices this Black Friday.
That includes its own Calibre brand, but also bikes from more mainstream marques such as Forme and Raleigh. Plus, there are kids’ bikes, e-bikes, folders and women’s machines in its range online.
You need to purchase its discount card to access the best offers from Go Outdoors, but that only costs £5 and gives you a year’s access to its lowest prices across its entire range, including camping and other outdoors kit. Plus, there are cardholder-only offers and Go Outdoors provides a lowest price guarantee.
Here’s our pick of the current deals on Go Outdoors’ bike range.
Calibre Kinetic E-Bike –
Calibre’s Kinetic e-bike is a Black Friday steal at just over £800. Go Outdoors
Developed in collaboration with Danish e-bike specialists, Promovec, Calibre’s Kinetic e-mtb is ideal for getting out onto the trails commuting or exploring your local area – and with a 33 per cent discount, it’s a bit of a bargain.
It has a 250W motor with an assisted top speed of 15mph, and a claimed range of up to 40 miles. It even has a walk assist mode to make it easier to move around when you’re not riding it.
Wild 24 Kids’ Bike –
Wild’s 24 Kids’ bike is a lightweight, well specced kids bike. Go Outdoors
With a tough yet lightweight frame (claimed bike weight is 8kg), 8 speed Shimano gears, chunky tyres and 24 inch wheels, the Wild 24 Kids’ bike could be ideal for the young tearaway in your family.
It’s also got very tasteful cyan paint job that exposes the alloy at the rear. It’s also discounted by a hefty 44 per cent for Black Friday – the only problem will be keeping it hidden until Christmas.
Calibre Sentry full-sus enduro MTB –
A 12-speed Eagle groupset and 160mm travel for the Calibre Sentry. Go Outdoors
If you’re looking for a full-susser, the Calibre Sentry was already a bargain but now has 22 percent off.
It has a RockShox Yari 160mm travel fork, which is matched with a RockShox Deluxe R rear shock. 12-speed shifting comes courtesy of SRAM NX Eagle, with SRAM Guide RE brakes with 200mm/180mm rotors for controlled, powerful stopping.

Calibre Rivelin men’s/Loxley women’s road bike –
Rivelin and Loxley include a carbon bladed fork for just over £300. Go Outdoors
The Rivelin and Loxley share the same spec and price point, but are designed for male and female riders respectively. Again, sharply priced by Calibre, and both have a Shimano Claris 8-speed groupset with an FSA Tempo 50/34 compact chainset and an 11-25 cassette. Calibre specs a fork with carbon blades, which is impressive at this price point.
