Enough with the Monday clock-watching. Here’s today’s Dirty Deals for you. Done your Xmas shopping? It’s time to treat yourself then.

>>> Last week’s Dirty Deals: gloves, helmets, flat pedals and much more!

All of the brands and products here are ones we’d recommend from the regular, independent testing that we carry out every week. So these are either specific products that we’ve ridden and rated, or at the very least are brands we’re familiar with and rate highly.

You will notice that beneath each product summary is a ‘Buy Now’ link. If you click on one of these links then mbr may receive a small amount of money from the retailer should you go to purchase the product from them. Don’t worry, this does not affect the amount you pay.
