Not wanting to be left out of the early Black Friday frenzy, Evans Cycles has released its final round of drals.
There are bikes, clothing, helmets, parts, accessories and loads more, but to save you having to do too much of the legwork, we’ve picked out some of our favourite deals.
And remember, this is just a tiny fraction of the Black Friday deals that are already available, so don’t forget to check out the hottest Black Friday offers from Wiggle and Rutland Cycling as well.
Oakley Radar EV Path Polished White – Prizm Jade Lens –
We might not see much sun for another few months here in the UK, but Black Friday is a great time to grab Oakley’s at a bargain price.
Oakley’s Radar EV Path sunglasses are definitely on the premium end of things, but they offer brilliant performance.
They use a taller lens than the old Radar model, for increased field of view, along with a half-frame style that minimises lens encroachment in your line of sight. They also offer effective venting to prevent fogging as well as excellent lens clarity.
Sugoi RS Train Long Sleeve Jersey –
At a 70% discount and with lots of sizes available, the Sugoi RS Train long sleeve jersey looks like a decent winter jersey at a great price. Evans Cycles
There are lots of great deals to be had around Black Friday, but a 70% discount is still a rare thing – that’s exactly what Evans is offering on the men’s Sugoi RS Train long sleeve jersey though.
Constructed from a lightweight brushed fabric it looks like a great mid-layer to wear underneath a windproof jacket on cold days. There are also three choices of colour (as long as you like blue), and a good range of sizes still available.
Tifosi Optics Seek FC Fototec photochromic sunglasses
These are a bargain at £37 Evans
We like photochromic glasses the change in lens tint can be really helpful on variable days and when going from sun to shade.
These sunnies from Tifosi transmit between 12% and 43% of incoming light, so they will work well in bright conditions.
The rimless design helps prevent fogging and doesn’t block your field of vision. With 47% off they’re a snip compared to flashier brands too.
Schwinn Rocket 5 men’s and women’s mountain bikes
This could be a great a starter mountain bike. Evans
This entry-level MTB from Amercian brand, Schwinn is available in men’s and women’s options, the latter with a kinked top tube for easier step-over.
It has an alloy frame, a suspension fork and 21-speed Shimano Tourney gearing. There are 27.5” wheels and mechanical disc braking.
It’s a nice starter bike from a respected brand, ready for off-road riding or the commute.
Mavic XA Elite UST XD 27.5 MTB wheelset
This could be a great upgrade wheelset option if you have a non-Boost bike. Evans
Mavic provides a lot of flexibility with its wheelsets out of the box, so you can run these non-Boost XA Elite wheels in a variety of configurations via the supplied axle adapters.
They’re tubeless-ready, being supplied with rim tapes and valves and take 6-bolt disc rotors. Plus, there’s Mavic’s quick engaging ID360 freehub and with the XD cassette body, you’re ready to fit SRAM’s wide-range cassette options. Mavic quotes a 1,690g wheelset weight.
SRAM AXS road and MTB groupsets at up to 25% off
There are big savings on SRAM’s latest generation groupsets for road and mountain bikes Evans Cycles
SRAM’s groundbreaking AXS family of groupsets has been discounted by up to 25 per cent making early adoption of these remarkable drivetrains a whole lot easier to swallow.
There are discounts on the XX1 and X01 MTB AXS variants, with full groupsets or just drivetrains available. Those looking for AXS eTap components for road or gravel use shouldn’t be disappointed either, with discounted 1x and 2x setups available with and without SRAM’s matching disc brakes.
Garmin Edge 520 Plus MTB bundle –
A bargain GPS bundle for the performance-orientated mountain biker.
This bundle goes big on value by packing Garmin’s Edge 520 Plus computer, official mountain bike mount and handlebar remote to bring control of the device to your fingertips. At this price, they won’t be hanging around for long.
Despite having been superseded by the more refined Edge 530, this computer remains widely available and popular for very good reason. It’s a favourite among competitive riders, with features such as Strava Live Segments, FTP testing and tracking, Di2 integration, a VO2 Max calculation and recommended recovery time.
Specialized Allex E5 Sport (2019)
We really enjoyed each of the 2019 Specialized Allez models we tested. Evans Cycles
Though we’ve not reviewed this particular model, we were hugely impressed with the Specialized Allez and Specialized Allez Elite bikes that sit below and above this bike respectively.
A chunky 30 per cent from the recommended retail price should make this a real bargain for those who can get themselves onto the limited size options available.
Garmin Edge 1030 Performance Bundle –
Garmin’s Edge 1030 GPS computer packs in a ridiculous number of features. Matthew Allen / Immediate Media
The most feature-packed GPS computer on the market, and for a limited time the best price on the market as well.
With its extended battery life and auto-uploading functions, it’s the perfect gadget to track even your longest rides.
Specialized Pitch Expert mountain bike –
If you’re looking for a great entry-level mountain bike, the Specialized Pitch Expert currently has 36% off. Specialized
This could be just the hardtail you’ve been looking for to get you or a loved one into mountain biking for the first time.
With 18 gears, climbing doesn’t have to be that intimidating, while the Suntour XCR fork has up to 100mm of travel that’s ready to absorb the bumps.
Castelli Alpha RoS Light Soft Shell Jacket –
The Castelli Alpha RoS Light Softshell Jacket is part of Castelli’s ‘Rain or Shine’ collection. Evans Cycles
The RoS designation means ‘Rain or Shine’ and denotes apparel in Castelli’s range that is capable of excelling no matter what the weather.
With Gore-Tex fabric and strategically taped seams, Castelli says the jacket is “functionally waterproof” – this means that it’s not claiming every drop of rain will be kept out, but it should keep you warm and comfortable in a wide range of conditions.
Lezyne Mirco Drive Pro 650XL front light –
This light is a steal at £22.50. Evans Cycles
Conveniently rechargeable using a simple micro-USB lead, this 650-lumen front light mounts onto your handlebars using a silicone strap, making for a simple yet effective setup.
The specs aren’t going to trouble the very best road lights on the market, but with 650 lumens, it puts out plenty of light to keep you visible on dark commutes.
We probably don’t need to make the case for having lights on your bike, aside from it being a legal requirement when it’s dark, it’s obviously a good idea for your safety too.
Giro Prolight Techlace Road Shoe –
The Giro Prolight Techlace Road Shoe is one of the lightest road shoes on the market. Evans Cycles
You might have seen these shoes on the feet of legendary climbers such as Richie Porte or BikeRadar’s Joe Norledge – the latter of whom cut the Velcro straps off of his own pair like Taylor Phinney (though it’s not clear who copied who).
When we reviewed them, we found them to be comfortable, ultra-light shoes – our pair came in at just 347g in a size 45. They’re also plenty stiff for racing and well ventilated too, owing to the minimalist uppers.
Genesis Fugio 20 2019 –
With its plump 50c tyres, the Genesis Fugio is fit for any terrain. Evans Cycles
Built around a double-butted chromoly frame with a carbon fork, the Genesis Fugio 20 might not be a lightweight gravel racer, but our reviewer said it will “roll over anything” thanks to its massive clearance and 650b x 50mm tyres.
The disc brakes are mechanical, but you do get 11-speed SRAM Apex 1, with a 42t chainring up front and a wide 11-42t cassette out back. It could be the only bike you need for riding all the way through the British winter.
Kask Valegro Road Helmet –
The Kask Valegro has 37 vent holes to maximise airflow. Evans Cycles
A recent addition to Kask’s catalogue, the Valegro was designed to be well ventilated, lightweight and good in the wind tunnel.
Developed in conjunction with Team Sky (now Team Ineos), it has quickly become a rider favourite. Our reviewer liked it too, praising it for being lightweight with great ventilation and adjustability.
SealSkinz All Weather Cycle XP Glove –
SealSkinz All Weather Cycle XP Glove is designed to offer protection from the elements without compromising dexterity. Evans Cycles
SealSkinz is well renowned for its range of waterproof cycling accessories, such as socks, overshoes and gloves. The All Weather Cycle XP Glove is designed to offer protection from the elements while still allowing you to retain dexterity and control over your bike.
There’s gel padding across the palm, as well as a silicone print to increase grip. Sealskinz says the thumb and index finger are touchscreen compatible too, so you shouldn’t need to take your gloves off to operate your phone.
