One last blast
This week’s Dirty Deals is a Cyber Monday special. Just because. Here are the top 20 mountain bike products that are on offer this Cyber Monday.
No doubt you’re a little bit sales-fatigued by now. Black Friday feels like it’s been on all month! Anyhoo, the sales sesh is nearly over. One more day of wide-eyed flogging and then we can return to our normal lives.
What is Cyber Monday? Who knows anymore really! It’s essentially a continuation of the modern-day late-November sales period with an online twist.
Bell Super 3R MIPS helmet –
£199.99 – £99.99
Save 50%! This is one of those convertible full face to open face helmet designs. The best thing aout Bell’s version of these sort of helmets is that when in open face guise your ears are totally open to the air. Looks much better and improves airflow too.
Pro Griffion Ti Rail Saddle –
£79.99 – £19.99
Save 75%! Most people only consider comfort and looks when it comes to choosing a saddle but those in the know appreciate that a saddle is one of the very most effective and VFM places to save weight on your bike. 205g for twenty quid!

£1,200.00 – £600.00

£89.99 – £44.95

Specialized Airtool MTB Flex Pump –
£25.00 – £9.99
Save 60%! Mini pumps that attach directly to the valves are asking for trouble. Bent valves are a pain and can actually ruin a ride if you’re not careful. Much better to have a pump that attaches by a short length of hose to take the tugging forces out of the equation.

£35.00 – £9.99

Fox Demo Freeride Baggy Shorts –
£85.00 – £39.99

Shimano Rokko 16 Litre Daypack –
£59.99 – £29.99
Save 50%! Shimano backpacks are a rare sight on the trails but that’s more to do with the ubiquity of Camelbaks rather than anything else. Nothing fits as snugly or as stably as a Shimano backpack set up correctly. This 16L capacity bag makes for a great all rounder.

£79.99 – £34.99

POC Joint VPD Elbow Pads –
£70.00 – £29.99
