Altura is a UK brand renowned for manufacturing reliable and functional cycling products at affordable prices. Established in 1997 in North Yorkshire, Altura initially produced a range of bike bags, which has slowly expanded to include clothing and accessories. Whilst less expensive than offerings from Castelli and Santini, Altura Clothing is still highly functional, and offers ranges to cater for recreational cyclists and professionals alike. Constantly striving to improve their ranges, over the years Altura have released ranges incorporating their Dry, Thermo, Shield, NightVision, and Performance Layering Systems technologies, helping to keep you comfortable and safe whatever the conditions. In my experience, I've found Altura products to be consistently hard wearing and offering excellent value for money - especially if you manage to get their gear in a sale!
About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
