Calibre Bossnut Evo Mountain Bike full suspension £999 Go Outdoors

Posted 8th Feb
Bossnut evo full suspension mtb.

The bike is reduced to £999 from £1300 when you take out a store card for £5. There is also 5% cashback through quidco which drops it to £949 (I spoke to staff at my local one and they would match the reduction in store so you don't have to buy online to get the cashback). If you then use the cycle to work scheme it reduces the overall cost to around £711 which you pay over 12 months as you don't have to pay any tax on it. (same for other bikes you like if not a fan of this one)

Isn't this just the standard price of this? Don't get me wrong, it's excellent value, but it's been price at Go Outdoors since last summer and when it was reviewed the magazines and websites mentioned this very price.

No idea, you might be right but a lot of people forget about the cycle scheme. Could apply to other bikes too, this was just a good example

Sorry, I should explain what I meant. Go Outdoors are the only ones that sell the Bossnut Evo (they are a "house" brand of theirs) and they've always had it priced up to be £999 with their Go Outdoors card. Any other savings that can be had such as the scheme you mentioned I wasn't aware of, and it's great to let people know if them, but basically this bike has always had an effective selling price of £999.

Yeah makes sense. Think it's an excellent deal with the cashback and the cycle to work scheme. Struggle to find a similar spec for just over 700! The triple B is obviously better but cycle to work only covers up to 1k
Cycle to work scheme when hardly anyone actually cycles to work with them, quality.

If your cycle to work involves going down the side of a mountain then this would be ideal.
I've seen it cheaper but still an absolutely fantastic bike for the money. Check out reviews on youtube etc it outperforms many much more expensive bikes even some bikes over 3x as much where the reviewer has stated preferred the Bossnut even if there was a weight penalty against those bikes some of which were carbon framed. It's hard to think of a cheaper dual suspension bike that can be recommended apart from clearance offers that occasionally come up. The factory to retailer direct model is great for getting a decent bike at a low price.

Might want to switch out they tyres depending on your mountain.

I think the comment was referring to having been cheaper from Go Outdoors in the past, they had some deals around Christmas (maybe 15% off?), and as someone said, this is an exclusive brand for G.O.

Yeah I've just seen it was at £800 at one point!
It was, but that doesn't mean it isn't still a cracking buy at £999/less with CTW etc

Great bike for money but is not a deal, it never goes above £999, some periods of the year price even goes further south

But the point is you could apply that to any of their bikes

I'll reiterate though, great bike for price

What dual suspension bike would you recommend currently for £999? I take your point it has been cheaper in the past and maybe again in the future but for someone after a dual suspension bike today what are the other options?

Retailer Cycle2work schemes often don't allow discounted bikes due to their additional costs so surely still a very good deal for those buying on such a scheme anyway.

I think you've missed my point, this is a great bike for a great price but it is always this price, hence this is standard price

I haven't missed the point I disagree with your point. If someone posts an inner tube that is reduced from £3 to £1.50 that is no better than a £1 inner tube at poundland which is the better deal? Some products are worth reminding people they exist. A very well reviewed dual suspension mountain bike for £999 is still a deal. Sometimes shops sell products as loss-leaders in order to increase footfall does that mean they aren't a deal because they are available so easily over a long period of time even if the shop itself actually makes a loss on the item?

Personally I like to promote British importers, this bike might have a manufacturing cost in China of £250-350 and then is imported directly in to the UK that means far less damage to the British economy than lets say a bike imported by a US or German company from China that hits the UK market at wholesale prices i.e. lets say £1200 and then sells for £2000 or more. Go outdoors don't have the marketing budget of the big brands so it is worth reminding people the bike exists.

Go Outdoors owned by JD sports with a multi billion turn over don't have a marketing budget :/

What a strange reply, firstly no one said they don't have 'a' marketing budget I said they don't have 'the' marketing budget of the big brands of bicycles because they operate on slimmer margins being a shop brand of bicycles, as far as I know they don't sponsor bicycle sporting events, they don't feature glossy ads in mountain bike magazines and you rarely see any calibre adverts online so no as I originally stated they don't have the marketing budget. I don't think it would be unfair to say that if you asked someone to name 5 mountain bike brands, Calibre would unlikely to be in there. The bikes sell more on value and recommendations, reviews etc and therefore its always good that people get to hear about them who may not know about them who may not have the Calibre brand on their radar so to speak. There's only one place where you see Calibre bikes and that is Go Outdoors stores and my nearest is 40 miles away. I've been there twice I think in my life, the same number of visits I've had to a Decathlon store which is 50 miles away. Compared to Halfords where I've probably been in there about 100-150 times in my life and probably visited about 20-30 stores including Cycle Republic stores.
I'm a cyclist but sometimes I prefer to use Stay Indoors during the winter, especially when it's windy and pissing it down with rain.
This is a great value bike and a great entry to mountain biking for people who want a quality experience but can't afford to spend a fortune on their first bike.
I nearly bought the previous version of this bike last year. Sadly my employer stopped doing Cyclesheme in favour of a different company. This led me to stretching my budget to a Boardman FS pro. At £200 it was an excellent choice.
This year's models of both the Bossnut and Boardman carry a very different value compared to last years. This time in favour of Calibre.

you mean downhill
These are cracking little trail bikes for the money. They'll keep up with much more expensive kit with the right rider.
There is now an extra 10% off until March!
