Vaude Bib Tights
The German brand Vaude was founded in 1974 in the Alps by Albrecht von Dewitz, inspired by his love of mountain sports. In 1980 it moved to Obereisenbach in Southern Germany. In 1992, Vaude moved into the cycling industry, with it's "Bike Sports" range of cycling clothing and accessories. Their products offer a high level of performance, and can often by found at Amazon UK with huge discounts on individual sizing and colour options. In 2009 Antje von Dewitz, daughter of Albrecht, took over the reigns, and the following year emphasis was placed on becoming more environmentally friendly; climate neutral manufacturing with sustainable materials.

Amazon famously started off as a book shop operated from a garage in Bellevue, Washington. Founded by Jeff Bezos in 1995, the company rapidly expanded it's product ranges, from books to CDs and DVDs to eventually include pretty much everything under the sun. This is highlighted in the recognisable logo, where the orange arrow points from "A" to "Z". The low pricing and fast delivery (if you use their popular Prime membership) results in Amazon being a popular retailer for cycling products, both from Amazon directly and the 3rd party sellers as well.
So what does this mean for me as a bargain hunting cyclist?! The good news is that Amazon regularly have ridiculous discounts on individual items. Whereas most retailers will discount a product equally in all sizes and colours, Amazon have the unusual trait of reducing a single size at 70-80% off, whereas the rest of the sizes will be at full retail price. If you're prepared to hunt for deals, then you can grab some amazing bargains - I've bought £160 cycling jackets for £25 - and once the item has been purchased, the price has immediately returned to the original RRP again. There doesn't seem to be a great deal of logic to what is reduced, it's not just certain sizes or ugly colours, but if you're prepared to put a bit of work in, you can save hundreds.
Please note: With designer or expensive goods, it is worth only buying products directly from Amazon or third party sellers with excellent feedback, to ensure that they are genuine models and not cheap copies.
