Heads-up: Huge Sports Tech Sale Underway – 20% Off All Smart Trainers!
There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
Last year…err…I mean earlier this week, I held the ‘You Didn’t Get What You Wanted $500 Gadget Giveaway’. Wherein some 5,014 of you awoke from your holiday slumber just long enough to enter and express your desire to one-up the holiday gifts you’d already received. However, I didn’t actually awake from the seemingly never-ending eating and drinking of the holidays to remember to close the comments section on time.
So as my holiday gift to those of you also late, I let those slow-boat people remain in the giveaway. Possibly because I’m really really nice, but also possibly because it was more daunting to manually remove them all. Maybe.
As is usually the case, I hopped over to my lovely friend, Random.org, and stuck in the total number of entries:
Then it was back to the post to find #1914:
Congrats Chris (B. with an @mac.com address)! You’re the winner of $500 bucks of gadget awesomeness. From the sounds of it you’re looking to pick up some cycling goods, and $500 will actually get you a complete wheel-on trainer like a Wahoo KICKR SNAP. Or, you could add a bit more to the pot and pick up a direct drive trainer like the Elite Suito or Tacx Flux S. On the power meter front the best bet in the budget range is the Favero Assioma Duo’s, which also require adding a touch bit more cash. But that’s just my two cents!
As for everyone else? Well, you can still go buy some gadget love for yourself from Clever Training, and you’ll still save 10% via cash or points on basically everything they sell, unless it’s already on some sort of big sale. From GPS watches to trainers to power meters, and even gel packets. Underwear and recovery devices too. And for those in Europe, you could also simply use Clever Training Europe which includes free Europe shipping on many items plus the usual DCR 10% savings. Thanks to them for the giveaway, and everyone for the support!

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”.
