Best bike frames on sale
OPEN U.P. gravel frame
Looking to build a world-class gravel bike without breaking the bank? Let me introduce you to the OPEN U.P., designed by the engineer behind Cervelo’s Tour de France-winning road bikes. The U.P. is a versatile and understated gravel bike that combines light weight, agile handling, and go-anywhere comfort.
Santa Cruz Chameleon C MTB frame
The Santa Cruz Chameleon is a quiver-killing hardtail that can blend in and adapt to any trail. The carbon Chameleon C sheds a few hundred grams over the alloy version so it’s even more versatile, capable of racing XC to shredding bike parks to loading up for multi-day bikepacking adventures.
Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 road frame
The latest Tarmac SL7 might be Specialized’s new flagship road racer, but plenty of riders (especially climbers) still love the lightweight Tarmac SL6. It also helps that the SL6 came in lots of special, eye-catching paint jobs, like this Acid Mint colorway that looks even more stunning in person than it does in photos.

Best bike wheels on sale
DT Swiss ARC 1100 DiCut 62 wheelset
DT Swiss’s ARC series challenge what we expect of aero road wheels. The aero experts at Swiss Side shaped the tubeless carbon rims in the wind tunnel to be super fast. That’s combined with DT Swiss’s industry-leading spokes and hubs to create super deep aero wheels that aren’t held back by excessive weight.
Reserve 35|35 wheelset
Developed by the carbon experts at Santa Cruz, the Reserve 35|35 is the ideal do-it-all workhorse wheelset. It’s deep enough for aero gains but shallow enough to handle blustery days and big climbs. The tubeless-ready 21mm internal rims works well for everything from 25mm race tires to big gravel tires.
Industry Nine Hydra Enduro S wheelset
With a massive 690 points of engagement, Industry Nine’s American-made Hydra hubs are the gold-standard for trail and enduro riding. Instant engagement means you can ratchet and get on the power earlier when the trail gets tough and technical. They're paired with Industry Nine’s affordable Enduro S carbon rims to give you a lot of performance at a great value.

Best bike components on sale
SRAM Red / Force AXS crankset
SRAM’s Red AXS cranksets are works of art with machined one-piece chainrings and carbon crank arms. Save big on top-of-the-line Red cranks by buying the GXP spindle versions. If you’re a racer or data geek, save big on a power meter by choosing a Red crank with a Quarq pre-installed.
SRAM XX1 Eagle rear derailleur
How does the rear derailleur look on your mountain bike? If it’s anything like mine, it’s pretty scraped up after a few seasons of rough riding. With big discounts on top-of-the-line XX1 Eagle derailleurs, you might as well give your Eagle drivetrain a blingy refresh.
Bontrager XXX Integrated Handlebar/Stem
If you spend anytime on “weightweenie” forums, then you might know that the feathery Bontrager XXX bar and stem is a weightweenie favorite. By integrating the carbon bar and stem into one piece, Bontrager created one of the lightest cockpits on the market.

Best cycling apparel on sale
POC Tectal SPIN helmet
The POC Tectal SPIN is one of my favorite trail helmets because it provides a lot of coverage, protection against rotational impacts, amazing ventilation, and a sleek shell that sits low on your head so you don’t look like Toad from Super Mario. Plus, it’s got a 5-star safety rating.
Mavic Comete Ultimate MIPS helmet
When I join a big group ride, I love having gear that separates me from the crowd. In a sea of Specialized Evades, you’ll definitely stand out with the unique Mavic Comete Ultimate aero helmet. It has futuristic and angular lines that wouldn’t look out of place in a cyberpunk cycling comic.
Race Face Nano Packable Jacket
After freezing my butt off in a few surprise rain storms, a thin and packable waterproof jacket has become a key piece of my weekend riding kit. I’m currently using the Nano, Race Face's lightest emergency shell. It packs down super small and the removable hood is helmet compatible.
Oakley Sutro Lite sunglasses
The Oakley Sutro Lite is my go-to pair of cycling sunglasses. It’s got some modern streetwear styling, so unlike many cycling sunglasses, it actually looks good on and off the bike. The big Prizm lenses provide supreme clarity and lots of protection from sun, wind, and dust.
