Manitou Mattoc Boost forks 120mm 27.5in was £799.99, now £189.99
In the world of Pikes, Lyriks, 34s and 36s it’s the plucky little Mattoc that often gets forgotten about. Particularly in the shorter travel end of things. Which is a bit of a shame because the Mattoc really is an excellent suspension fork. Join the cult of Manitou now with this great fork at a genuinely mind-melting discount.
Five Ten Sleuth DLX was £99.95, now £59.97
The main thing everyone wants to know when it comes to flat pedal shoes is… how sticky is the rubber sole? The sole on the Sleuth DLS is made from Five Ten’s Stealth Phantom rubber, which is 65a durometer. Which is a shade firmer than Freeriders (64a durometer rubber) for example. And as such, these are ideal for those riders who find that other Five tens are too stuck-down on spiky pedals.
Nukeproof Kashmir shorts was £70.00, now £37.50
A closer fitted short in the modern stlyee that’s coated with DWR water repelling stuff. There’s still a couple of zip pockets on them and a bit of stretchy panelling in certain places to keep you agile and ruling the rainy ruts.
7 iDP M2 BOA helmet was £69.99, now £48.99
The M2 is one of the more affordable helmets that still offer decent coverage for the back of your head. The BOA tag refers to the string retention system, more commonly found on cycling shoes but put to good effect here. Loadsa vents too.
100% Strata goggles was £39.99, now £25.00
If you’ve yet to dabble in the world of goggles then now’s your chance. Avoid bargain basement goggles and get yourself some proper entry-level affairs from one of the best names in the goggle biz.
Fulcrum RED ZONE 5 Boost wheelset was £299.99, now £129.99
A nice and normal set of wheels for your spare/hack/XC bike. The 23mm internal width rims will be fine with tyres up to 2.3in in size. There’s no oddball rotor mouting or proprietary spokes here either. Impressive weight for the money too.
Royal Storm jacket was £179.99, now £107.99
Fully waterproof and mid-weight, 3-layer, 4-way stretch material. Complete with adjustable hood that’s big enough to pull over a helmet for those blustery summit moments. Even the pockets are waterproof too so you can be rest assured your Blackberry will survive the ride. What do you mean, “what’s a Blackberry?”
Sealskinz DragonEye waterproof gloves was £45.00, now £22.99
Yay summer! These gloves are totally waterproof, breathable and windproof whilst retaining a minimal padding ethos to help you hold on with maximum feel and feedback from your bike’s sliding around n the slop. Stretchy on the backs and articulated around the knuckles. Get ready to punch autumn in the face with these go-anywhere gauntlets.
Royal Heritage long sleeve jersey was £54.99, now £32.99
You can never have too many long sleeve jerseys. Who still wears short sleeves when mountain biking these days? Have they never heard of nettles, brambles or simply ripping the heck out of your elbows in a crash?! Multiple designs in the sale but we like this hooped offering the best.
dhb Aeron Ultralight Merino short sleeve jersey was £85.00, now £51.00
Even if the summer throws you some rain, you’ll still probably be out riding longer rides than you do at other times of the year. It’s still warmer than winter and stays lighter for longer after all. Make the most of your riding time whilst reducing the time spent watching the washing machine with a nice merino wool jersey that can be worn a few times on the trot before it stinks out.
Commencal Meta Trail 29 Essential was £3,299.99, now £2,649.99
Let’s finish this Deals round-up with a biggie. A big wheeling bruiser of a trail bike. 150mm Fox 36 up front. 130mm rear travel from a Fox DPS at the back. Fun geometry numbers. Wide range drivetrain. Powerful SLX stoppers. Dropper post included. One of the best cult mountain bikes of the modern era right here folks.
