Now that the snow has melted and warmer, trail-friendly temperatures have swept in for the foreseeable future, Competitive Cyclist is looking to get riders suited up for the rest of the riding season by cutting prices on mountain bike apparel for some of the industry’s top brands.
The sale runs from April 14 through 24 and includes items like helmets, jerseys, shoes, and much more at considerable markdowns.
Here are several items to keep your eye on before they are gone for good.
Troy Lee Designs A2 MIPS Helmet
