Heads Up: 48-Hour Wahoo 10-20% off KICKR, CORE, BIKE, Speedplay & More Sale

Just a super quick Monday heads up that Competitive Cyclist is running a 2-day sale on a boatload of Wahoo gear, for 10-20% off almost everything. We’ve semi-occasionally seen these 20% off sales on Wahoo products the day after the Tour de France ends (yesterday), though I don’t think we saw one last year. But it’s never included their Wahoo KICKR Bike before, and rarely this wide a range of products. Nor has the RIVAL GPS watch been on sale. For European folks, Wahoo is offering the same sale on their European site.

So if you’re in the market for any of this Wahoo gear, then frankly, you’re not going to find a better deal (and no deal to match it anytime soon). The best deals we ever see in the US market top out at 20% off Wahoo stuff (never more), and usually tied to spring and Black Friday sales (give or take a few weeks). I don’t expect this summer to be a busy one for new trainers, and I certainly don’t expect any new version of the Wahoo KICKR Bike either. There’s just no reason for Wahoo to launch a new bike right now. Instead, Wahoo has been focusing on increasing distribution of the current version and ironing out quirks.

This sale only lasts today and tomorrow, and is only available in the US. All of the links below help support the site, so if you’re considering picking up something from this list, using these links makes you awesome.

Trainer Recommendations: If you’re looking for trainer recommendations, my guide from this past fall is still 100% valid. The only change I’d make is to add the JetBlack VOLT into the mid-range recommendations guide. Given the JetBlack VOLT trainer is $50 cheaper than the KICKR CORE with similar specs/accuracy/etc, it doesn’t change the landscape much there beyond adding choice.

Smart Bike Recommendations: Like with trainers, not much has changed in the smart bike realm. The smart bike realm is a largely simple field, with the prices pretty linear to the features you get. I’d agree with the consensus that the KICKR Bike is the best smart bike of the bunch (even if not perfect), and the price reflects that. Normally the KICKR BIKE is $3,500USD (and the most expensive unit). Now it’s $3,149USD, and putting it basically at the same range as the Tacx Bike.

In any case, here’s the full list of what’s on sale, along with links to all my reviews (just click on the product name):

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
4iiii Fliiiight Smart Trainer- 20% off
$599
$439⚡ This is the totally silent trainer (it uses magnets). This is notable not only for the sale, but because it's basically the first time it's been back in stock in nearly a year.
4iiii Precision Ride-Ready Power Meters - 14% off$258This includes the Shimano DuraAce, Ultegra, and 105 units, at between 11-14% off depending on which exact model you select.
Elite Suito-T Smart Trainer - 10% off!
$799 (incl cassette)
$722Note: The Suito-T is the same exact trainer as the Suito, except without the cassette pre-installed.
Elite Tuo Smart Trainer - 7% off
$529
$492
Favero Assioma Duo Power Meter Pedals - $130 off!
$459/$719(single/dual)
$489⚡ This is a strong deal from Favero, who is offering their Favero Assioma Duo pedals for 80-110EUR off. You'll pay the current exchange rate. The exact deal will vary based on which country you're shipping to.
Favero Assioma Duo Power Meter Pedals - $90 off!$549⚡ This is a strong deal from Favero, who is offering their Favero Assioma Duo pedals for 80-110EUR off. You'll pay the current exchange rate. The exact deal will vary based on which country you're shipping to.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus - $50 off!
$199
$149The 'Plus' variant is notable compared to the regular unit for having ClimbPro on it, plus a handful of other tweaks. $149 is a good deal for it.
Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS - $50 off!
$299
$249⚡ This matches last year's Black Friday sale, and is the lowest price to date on the Edge 530. This is one of the main units I use for my day-to-day riding and testing.
Garmin Edge 830 Cycling GPS - $50 off
$399
$349⚡ While this isn't a big sale, it's actually the lowest price the unit has been offered in the 2.5 years since release.
Garmin Varia RVR315 Radar - $50 off$99⚡ This is the lowest price to date on this radar. This variant doesn't have a taillight, so it's a bit smaller as a result. Same radar tech though, and compatible with Garmin/Stages/Hammerhead/Wahoo bike computers.
Hammerhead Karoo 2 - Up to $150 trade-in value
$399
VariesHammerhead is doing a promo where you trade-in your older bike computer for up to $150/150EUR off your Karoo 2. You can trade-in some surprisingly old devices, like the 12 year old Garmin Edge 500 for example. Though, that almost has museum-grade potential these days... Either way, the Karoo 2 continues to impress me in terms of new features via its constant stream of firmware updates.
KOM Cycling Trainer Desk - 20% off!$69I bought and reviewed this desk earlier this year, and really like it. In fact, it's still the one I've been using lately (I also like the other ones too, but for no particular reason I never swapped back). It's especially great if you've got a small space.
Lezyne Mega-XL Cycling GPS - 30% off (Yellow Edition only)
$199USD
$129If you're looking for a yellow submarine edition of the Mega-XL, this this bright bike computer is all yours for 30% off!
Little Tikes Pelican Explore & Fit Cycle - 11% off$129So, the Three Peanuts (girls ages 2/4/5) have been testing this the last week, and so far, they love it. It's silly simple (there's no real connectivity here), and the videos they ride with are also absurdly laughable. Yet, they love it. Seriously, they fight over it. In-Depth review coming very very shortly. Until then, it's on sale.
NordicTrack S22i Indoor Cycle Bike - $700 off$1,499This is considered the primary competitor to Peloton, and is generally rated/reviewed very highly. Note that I have not reviewed this bike, or ridden it. But I figured I'd mention it here in case folks are looking for a deal on it. With Peloton's new pricing, the base prices are basically the same - $1,495 for the Peloton Bike. Sorta like politics, people prefer one brand or the other. Also like Peloton - it DOES NOT support any open standards for apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, etc... Do NOT buy it (or Peloton) for that purpose.
Peloton Bike - $200 off Accessory Bundle$1,495Essentially Peloton isn't lowering the price of the bike itself, but is throwing in the accessories for free (saving you $200). Thus making them the most expensive pair of cycling shoes and 5lbs weights known to man. But hey, if you were gonna buy them - then now you get them for free. Note that Peloton DOES NOT support any open standards for apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, etc... Do NOT buy it for that purpose. It's a great bike that I and my wife use numerous times a week, but just use it for the Peloton platform.
Peloton Bike+ is $350 off$2,145This is a solid deal for the Bike+, and the first time we've seen it on discount. Both my wife and I use both the Peloton Bike+ and the regular Bike (one at home, one at office) on a weekly basis. We like both. The Bike+ is more accurate than the regular bike, and also has a bigger screen and automatic resistance control. That said, the core Peloton experience isn't any different between the two - it's the same platform there.
Saris H3 (Hammer 3) Smart Trainer - $240 off!
$1,099
$860⚡⚡ One of the top three trainers, but by far the top trainer on the market for ERG mode (so if you're a TrainerRoad user - this be the one!).
Stages Bike SB20 - $350 off!
$2899
$2,799⚡ A very solid deal, as virtually none of the smart bikes are actually on sale right now.
Stages Dash L50 - $75 off!
$299
$225The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both $75 off. The L50 is the largest of the two (hence the L in the name), while the M50 is the smaller unit (M for Medium).
Stages Dash M50 - $75 off!
$249
$174The Stages Dash M50 & L50 are both $75 off. The L50 is the largest of the two (hence the L in the name), while the M50 is the smaller unit (M for Medium).
Stages Power Meters - Most 30% off Factory Install Units30% offStages is offering 30% off their factory install power meters (meaning, the power meter is installed on your existing crankset/crank arm). Plus also 30% off the Cannondale SI units too!
Tacx Boost Trainer - $50 off$249This is a very budget trainer, without any smarts (unless you buy the bundle, and even then, it's still not very smart). It's not my favorite trainer, but if you were trying to find it onsale, this is your chance.
Tacx Flux 2 Smart Trainer - Normally $899
$899USD/€799
$799Also a rare sale on the Flux 2, albeit just a $100 off, it's still not a bad deal.
Tacx NEO 2T Smart Trainer - $200 off! (In Stock)
$1,399
$1,199⚡ This is a very rare sale for this trainer, if you're in the market, I wouldn't wait around for these units to disappear.
Wahoo CLIMB Accessory - $65 off!
$599
$539Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wahoo Headwind Fan - $25 off!
$249
$225Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wahoo KICKR Core Smart Trainer- $90 Off
$899
$809While not quite the 20% off deals we saw last week, this is as good as it's gonna get for a long while. So grab it if ya want a KICKR CORE! Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wahoo KICKR Desk - $25 Off
$249
$224⚡ This is one of those units that is undoubtedly expensive - yet everyone who has one loves it. Including myself. Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wahoo KICKR SNAP - $50 Off
$499
$449Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wahoo KICKR V5/2020 - $120 off!
$1,199
$1,079While not quite the 20% off deals we saw last week, this is as good as it's gonna get for a long while. So grab it if ya want a KICKR! Note: Black Friday and Cyber Monday only (but not Saturday/Sunday).
Wattbike Smart Bikes - Free HRM & trainer mat with purchase
$2,599
VariesGet a free Wattbike heart rate monitor and floor mat (worth £75) with all Wattbike Atom purchases*

This sale ends tomorrow, Tuesday, at 11:59PM US Mountain Time, or, until supplies last. As always with these high-value deals/sales, I recommend clicking buy first, and sorting out cancelling an order later if it turns out you can’t get wife/husband-acceptance-factor approval. Especially for the KICKR & KICKR Bike ones.

So basically, to summarize in simple text:

– All Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, KICKR SNAP, and KICKR BIKE units
– Wahoo’s trainer accessories, notably the desk, CLIMB, and Headwind Fan, plus the KICKR V5 Direct Connect Ethernet Adapter
– All one of Wahoo’s watches (the Wahoo RIVAL)
– Wahoo’s sensor accessories (TICKR & speed/cadence sensors)
– Their Speedplay pedals & accessories

The full Wahoo sale listing on Competitive Cyclist is here, in case you prefer to browse that way.

What’s not on sale:

– Their bike computers
– Their previously sorta-announced POWRLINK Zero power meter, since pricing/availability isn’t announced yet.
– Anything else I forgot

Again, you simply won’t get any better deal any time, than 20% on Wahoo gear. That’s just the way Wahoo works. It’s been that way forever, and save some sort of weird clearance event for a discontinued product, that’s the extent of things. Thus, if you’re in the market for any of those products, go forth and be done with it. Note: I do NOT expect the full Wahoo KICKR V5/2020 (specifically that unit) stock levels to last long on this one. And these days, the 20% off Wahoo trainers specifically, Wahoo seems to have killed most of those deals with retailers over the past year.

With that, thanks for reading – and for supporting the site via the links! More unrelated sports tech goodness coming up in about 4.5 hours!

    Hi! I just received an email from wahoo, the sale is also on eu.wahoofitness.com!

    • Leszek

      There are SALE, but there are no bicycle trainers in the Wahoo (EU) store, there is only KICKR (2018 version) at the price of 800 €, which is quite sensible. A show whether something is in stock or not – most of it is simply out of stock, which we learn only after hovering over the item with the mouse. Not cool.

      And there is a Rival in stock (which is not surprising) for €304, this is a slightly more realistic price for this watch.

    • There was stock yesterday for everything (when the sale started).

  2. Alex S

    Obvious question – do these discounts (especially on the Kickr Bike) imply there are refreshes coming imminently? I guess not but I’ve never seen the Kickr Bike discounted before so it made me wonder.

  3. Tizzledk

    US only ….sigh…….

  4. Steve Galbraith

    Sale on in Australia

  5. MaKr

    Looks like the smart bike is only 10% off… Any recent adopters have an opinion on whether some of the early kinks have been worked out?

  6. dbsmith

    Followed your link to the CC site this morning (July 19 at 7:00 AM).

    The discount shown is 10% on most of the major stuff; 20% on things like pedals, etc.

    Quite different to what you’ve written…

  7. Graham Jessop

    UK – Kickr KOM Bundle is currently 19% cheaper than the list price of buying the items separately. Wahoo website states 10% discount, this must be the saving applied against the normal cost of the bundle, which is currently not stated. Good value either way.

  8. Bryan Molloseau

    Okay – I’m still really torn between a Certified Reconditioned (2018) Kickr, the Core, or the 2020 Kickr – with the sale they are (in order) $800, $810, and $1080.

    I currently have a Cycleops M2 (wheel on trainer) and I’m ready to move on. Two really annoying things with the M2 are the tire noise (squeaking over time) and the calibration EVERY time you get on the trainer.

    I was originally thinking the new Kickr with auto-calibration was the way to go – but now I’m not sure it’s worth the extra cost. Just how much different is the calibration of the Core and 2018 Kickr as compared to a wheel on trainer? In other words, will I be just as annoyed with calibrating these?

    Since I’m moving away from a wheel on trainer – I expect the accuracy of these direct mount trainers will be more than sufficient for my needs so the differences between them are not really a factor in my mind.

    Are there other things I should consider that someone coming from a wheel on trainer may notice more as an improvement or must have?

  9. Chuck B

    Sucks that I ordered a Kickr Bike on Sunday! Hoping that since it hasn’t shipped yet they’ll honor the sale price (or at least, give me a coupon for the difference).

  10. Chappo

    Thanks DCR! Savings on the Aussie site also: link to au.wahoofitness.com

  11. Marco

    looks like Saris increased prices of their H3 trainer by 100$. I’m guessing prices are increasing everywhere.

  12. Katy

    Any updates on Wahoo sales for the upcoming Black Friday in a few weeks?
