The Massive Cyber Monday Sports Tech Deals List!

Here’s your complete guide to sports tech deals, sorted by category and updated constantly throughout the day, often hourly with new deals.

Most links here help support the site – which I greatly appreciate! These four DC Rainmaker partner sites here are also running huge Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on sports gear to supplement your sports tech addiction – Backcountry.com, CompetitiveCyclist.com, REI, and Wiggle:

If you know of a sports tech deal (gadget-focused), feel free to drop a note in the comments or in the contact form. As long as it’s not spam-like, I’m more than happy to share it out! :)

Watches & Wearables:

This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like, including sensors.  Generally speaking, you’ll mostly find deals here that are on things I’ve written about in the past.  So you won’t find a deal on some random non-sports tech watch here, or on socks.  Unless the socks have some crazy sensor or something in them.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Garmin Epix (Gen 2) - $200 off!
$499⚡⚡ This is an incredibly strong deal. Especially viewed in light of all the non-Garmin AMOLED competitors charging far more for far fewer features. This non-sapphire edition doesn't have multiband, but testing has pretty clearly shown that Garmin's Epix non-multiband GPS is basically on-par with their competitors multiband config (see my NYC tests for that).
Garmin Epix Pro Series (All variants) - $200 off!
$699⚡ This is only the second time we've seen these on sale. This is probably my go-to watch these days (middle-sized one), with the singular reason I tend to choose it over the Forerunner 965, being the built-in flashlight for night.
Garmin Fenix 7 Pro (All variants) - $200 off (7S/7/7X Pro) - $200 off!
$599+⚡ This is only the second time we've seen the new Fenix 7 Pro series on sale, and it's a nice strong sale. The smaller Fenix 7S Pro watch has become my wife's go-to watch since it came out, for all of her training and 24x7 usage.
Garmin Fenix 7 Series (All Models/Styles) - $200 off!
$449+⚡This is a strong deal if you don't care about the new optical heart rate sensor (including ECG) of the newer Fenix 7 Pro, especially given the Fenix 7 series has received virtually all of the Fenix 7 Pro's new software features, keeping them essentially identical. $449 is the lowest price I've seen to date.
Garmin Forerunner 255/255S Music - $100 off!
$299This is Garmin's mid-tier running watch, and is a very polished option with good multi-band GPS, and of course, a boatload of running metrics. This model also includes offline music such as Spotify and Amazon Music.
Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar: $100 off!
$499See everything I said above on the Forerunner 955 base, except this one also has solar.
Garmin Venu 3 - $50 off!
Google Pixel Watch 2 - $70 off!$329
Suunto Veritcal (Solar edition) - $50 off$699

Smart Trainers & Indoor Bikes:

Looking for a smart trainer, indoor bike, or related gear? That’s all here. This includes things like smart trainer fans, accessories for smart trainers like rocker plates and plenty more!

There are no deals currently.

Cycling Gear:

Got a bike? Then this section is for you.  Everything from bike computers to bike lights and related.  I won’t generally be adding things like brake cables or bike seats here, but if I find a good deal on a cassette to stack on that new direct drive trainer you just bought, I’ll probably list it here.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Garmin Edge 1040 - $100 off$499The is the lowest price we've ever seen on the Edge 1040, and only the 2nd time it's ever been on sale in two years. It's still Garmin's top-end units, and still receiving new features via quarterly firmware updates.
Garmin Edge 1040 Solar - $100 off$649
Garmin Edge 540 - $50 off$299First time this has been on sale, and the lowest price to date. I personally prefer the Edge 840 due to the menus being a bit easier to use with a touchscreen. Both Edge 540/840 have identical buttons though for days you don't want the touchscreen.
Garmin Edge 540 Solar - $50 off$399
Garmin Edge 840 - $50 off$399This is, best I can tell, the first time Garmin has put the Edge 840 on sale.
Garmin Edge 840 Solar - $50 off$499
Garmin Varia Radar (RTL515) - $50 off
$149This is Garmin's standalone radar/taillight option, and $149 is pretty much the standard sale-price. This product is universally loved, and works with Garmin/Wahoo/Stages/Hammerhead/etc, and other bike computers.

Action Cameras & Drones:

Wanna record it?  No better way than an action camera.  Anything that’s action camera-related or drone-related you’ll find here.  That’s especially true of action camera mounts, which are often found for great deals around the holidays.  Same goes with drones and drone accessories.  Usually a great time to pick up an extra battery or extra props.

There are no deals currently.

Other Sports & Fitness:

Anything else that’s sports and fitness-related that I think is interesting will be here.  It may not be super techy – but it’s stuff that most readers will be using in pursuit of their running/cycling/swimming/hiking/whatever.

ProductSale PriceAmazonOther siteSale Notes
Garmin inReach 2 Mini Satellite Communicator (2-way) - $100 off$299⚡ This is my defacto satellite communicator when out of coverage area, and I've used it on a number of major treks over the past two years when well outside of cellular service, both in a 24x7 tracking mode for friends and family, but also there in case of emergency. Would strongly recommend for anyone doing anything in the wilderness.

Euro Deals!

What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal?  No problem!  Note that on Amazon Europe deals, generally speaking, you can order from any Amazon European country site (i.e., Amazon France) and have it shipped within the EU (i.e., Spain). Thus, many times deals are duplicated across the sites. I generally try and just distill it down to one.

There are no deals currently.

DCR Random Gadget List:

This is basically the mostly totally unrelated gadgets and things I think are cool deals that I’ve likely bought one or five of (you can never have too many, right)?  Some of it’s probably photography stuff.  Some of it’s random stuff like chargers and battery packs that I use daily, fun camera gear I use to make videos like sliders and turntables, and well…just random things you’ll find around the DCR Cave.  It’s all random…but it’s all awesome randomness!

There are no deals currently.

I’ll continue to add deals as I find them.

DCR Buyers Guide & Gear I Use:

Finally, I’ve also put together a bit of a ‘Gear I Use’ store on Amazon, which consolidates all the products I use most often, or some recommendations, into one easy to click Amazon storefront. This includes both sports tech items, non-tech sports items (like my running shoes), around-the-house/cave tech, and even The Girl’s sports/non-sports tech items. Just whack the image below or this link here, to dive into it:

With that – thanks for reading, and for supporting the site via the links above. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for compiling this page for us.

    The price on Elite Suito looks weird.

    The REI link for the Wahoo Powerlink Zero dual sided, point to the single sided.

    I’m a little surprised you don’t have the Stages SB20 for $1799.99 on here. Feels like a steal to me (I’m very close to pulling the trigger). link to stagescycling.com

    A whopping $20 off the same iPad on Amazon for Canadians. Incredible.

    Updated buyers guides incoming?

    • Hoping to squeak one out in the next few days!

    • Luke

      Not exactly sure where to put this question, but any plans to review the Garmin Bounce, the new kids smartwatch they just released? 6/9 year olds are starting to get longer proverbial leashes, and a GPS watch that’ll allow texting and tell me where they are is the kind of thing we “need”.

    • Yup! Definitely. Probably out tomorrow. Which, I know I said a few days ago, but I’m legit close now. We’ve been using them (as a family) for a few weeks now. And it’ll include notes from a 5yo/6yo/40yo’s wearing/thoughts point of view. ;)

    • Orange Roses

      Definitely debating between a Bounce and a lower end running watch for a 10 year old who runs 5Ks. They are petite, so the Bounce may fit better. But in 1.5 years, they will be in junior high cross country. Love to hear your insights.

    • Philip Peeples

      Was this ever posted? I’m not seeing it, if so…

      I already have one as a xmas gift for my son, but looking for some real world usage reviews to determine if we stick with it or go another direction for his gifts.

  7. Kevin

    Surely the Garmin In-Reach has no market remaining since this functionality is coming to all Smart Phones now?

    Also the Fitbit Inspire revs 2&3 are going for less than half price on Amazon since the rev4 came out. The 3 in particular is 2022 tech, that has just been bumped by a revision that has no obvious changes or upgrades.

    • Kevin

      Also Elite Direto in the UK is now £385 at Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle:
      link to chainreactioncycles.com

    • Actually, the opposite – it’s raised interest in the segment.

      Keep in mind, the new Apple satellite features* are currently emergency SOS, not status updates to friends/family following along. Also, they’re highly limited to just a few countries, and even within that, specific attitudes, and finally, also more limited in mountain/coverage area due to the differences with Iridium satellites.

      Don’t get me wrong – long term, they’ll appeal, but we’re talking 3-5 years at least.

      *Outlined here: link to dcrainmaker.com

  8. Husain

    Cellular connectivity on the Apple Watch Ultra is region specific. There are three models (regional) listed on Apple’s website. Buying online does not guarantee that the model specific to your region.

  9. Peter Fine

    Hoping to see a discount on the Garmin Edge 1040 / Edge 1040 Solar. Looks like they just want to clear out the old 1030+, and I expect imminent release of 540 and 840.

    • Yeah, it’s not currently on Garmin’s approved sale last, but, as usual, that rarely ever stops Amazon from getting drunk over Black Friday weekend and dancing to their own beat. Just depends on whether they have bulked up enough inventory to take the 6-month MAP ban, that would follow.

  10. Stuart Brown

    Wiggle in the UK have the Tacx Neo 2SE for £599 (claiming 50% off).

    Is that a good deal?

    • It’s not a bad deal. The NEO 2SE is great (I currently use the base NEO 2 at home as my main trainer, and the SE simply adds in slightly better axle support). The 50% off isn’t exactly true, as itnormally hovers around 800-1000, when it’s in stock (which also fluctuates).

      But I think 599 is pretty good.

  11. Don Rhummy


    Any upcoming Favero black Friday deals?

  12. Mike

    Is it wise to buy a reconditioned Kickr Bike v1 from wahoo? It is quite a bit cheaper, but am I taking a significant risk of maintenance problems in a year or two’s time? Thank you.

    • I plan to. Seriously, if I get the right deal over Black Friday, it’s on my (wife-approved) list to buy for our home shed/garage. My reasoning versus V2 (keeping in mind I’m finishing up the V2 review, waiting while Wahoo digs into some newfound accuracy issues)

      A) The only practical difference is the V2 has WiFi and Direct Connect (sure, there are some very minor internal things, but the only meaningful thing here is the addition of WiFi)
      B) I don’t have any dropout issues in my shed, in fact, if anything, I’d have issues with WiFi connectivity. So BT/ANT+ is perfectly fine for me.
      C) I know that many of the V2 changes are actually inside V1, as running changes (not WiFi, but most of the ‘quality increase’ changes have been made over the last 2 years already
      D) I’m willing to pay basically half-price for this (half-price in comparison to the $4K retail price of V2)
      E) It’s still covered by the same warranty, and frankly, if there is any sort of major issues, they’ll come they’d probably just give you a V2
      F) I have no issues buying a reconditioned one either, because again, same warranty. And these bikes go back to the same factory half the time anyways.

      That’s my thoughts. I don’t usually advocate for buying older stuff when newer stuff is out, mainly because I think you often miss-out on things down the road. But there’s been such little software innovation in the smart bike/trainer features realm, that it’s not something I’m worried about (whereas watches and bike computes still see tons of innovation).

    • Todd Wilkens

      You think the kickr v1 on sale is a better bike/deal then the stages bike at 1799? Do you mind saying why? I am trying to decide between the two and 1799 seems like such a good deal.

    • Now that things are on a level playing field, the KICKR Bike V1 at $1,999 vs Stages Bike at $1,799.

      Main reasons I’d go KICKR Bike there:

      A) Up & Down simulation with built-in KICKR CLIMB (this is the big one)
      B) I prefer the movement of the KICKR Bike (a bit of give/flex forward/back, the SB20 has zero give/flex)
      C) KICKR Bike has multi-channel Bluetooth (not a big deal for most, but I value it)
      D) KICKR Bike has better ERG mode accuracy
      E) Small shifting display built-in, so you know what gear you’re on without having to have your phone there
      F) Downhill drive simulation
      Z) I personally prefer the KICKR Bike Look over the bulky Stages Bike look, but that’s a personal visual preference.

      Now, that said, there’s no doubt that Stages has a far longer history of building indoor bikes. They make Wahoo look like toddlers. As such, we’ve essentially seen almost no teething issues on the hardware side from them (some software issues, yes, but I think all solved these days, save ERG mode consistency). Whereas Wahoo has had hardware teething issues. Still, balancing all those things, given the price are roughly equal, I’d go KICKR Bike.

      This isn’t meant to be a complete comparison – for example, Stages has things like extra shifters you can buy, a nice place to stick your phone, two USB ports versus 1, a place for your tablet too, and on and on. But again, for me and what I value personally, at the same price, I’d go KICKR Bike.

    • Chales

      Would I be correct in thinking that if the use case is for multiple (3-4 in my case) users that the adjust ability of the SB20 would tilt the decision in favor of that bike? Seems like there were many reports of seat post slipping on the Kickr and if our household is changing heights every day that would be a big pain point. Otherwise I’d love to go for the Kickr for the climb function.

  13. IronSeaman

    Thanks to such comprehensive updates!

    Taking into account black friday deals, which direct drive smart trainer you would recommend for a middle price:

    – kickr core
    – elite suito / direto
    – tacx flux S/2
    – any other?

    Almost same prices there +-100$.

    Thank you in advance

    • Hello!

      I’d go with the KICKR CORE, for the following reasons:

      A) Ability to pair KICKR CLIMB down the road
      B) Generally the best accuracy of that bunch
      C) Multi-channel Bluetooth
      D) Totally silent (Suito/Direto are quiet, but not same level, and Flux nowhere near that)

      Do keep in mind that some of that (some Suito/Direto) do include cassettes, whereas CORE you need to buy that (about $50-$60 usually). Not a big deal, but just a minor FYI.


    • Peter Fine

      I own an original KICKR. I ride with noise cancelling Beats Fit Pro earbuds, run 2 fans and watch TV whiile riding. Do you think that the latest KICKR Core’s lower noise level will be noticeable to me? The drivetrain and fans still make tons of noise.

    • IronSeaman

      Thank you for such prompt answer:)

      I was determined to make this choice, and now I am 100%. Especially because of the silence. In the apartment, it matters.

    • Hi Peter-

      Yeah, the difference between a KICKR V1 (from a decade ago), in noise, and a KICKR V5/V6 is massive. The main change occurred around the KICKR V4 (2018), when they made it silent, so if you wanted to save some cash, you could pickup the KICKR V5 (2020) which is $799 right now.

      Your drivetrain will be louder than it, but, in theory, if your drivetrain is clean, it should be pretty quiet (quite than your fans, hopefully). I mean, I’m definitely not saying my drivetrain is clean all the time – I’m just saying in theory.

    • Simon

      thank you very much, I’m in the same boat as the commenter.

      Unfortunately, Elite Suito(-T) and Flux S seem to go for ~400-450 in Germany, while the Kickr CORE just always stays at 600, with 550,- as lowest-of-all-time, since they’re not really doing sales a lot in europe :( They even removed the refurbished Kickr Core for 500€ offer from their website just ahead of BF.

      Do you think the 200€ extra is worth it? 400€ basically is my budget tbh :(
      Got a Saris H3 for that, but it was faulty and I couldnt get a replacement

    • Rick

      Hey Simon,
      did you consider the Zwift Hub as an alternative? Maybe it’s a good middle ground between your current options.

      I was long looking at different trainers from Elite for a cheapish direct-drive trainer, but didn’t pull the trigger last winter. For this winter, after reading Ray’s review I got a Zwift Hub instead. According to Ray basically as good as the Kickr, minus the compatibility to their add-ons, but for 499€ (Germany).

    Is it worth going there Fenix 6 Sapphire?

  16. Mike Fuller

    Wahoo Powerlink pedals are no longer being shown on the REI sale site

    • Bummer. I’ll leave them up for now. Typically we’ve seen REI inventory fluctuate a bit, so my guess is they’ll put an order in for more, and then hopefully light it up again. Though, we’ve also seen them casually go out of stock the last few days of the 20% off sale (for Wahoo stuff), and then magically at midnight it shows up back in stock again. :-/

  17. morey000

    picked up the base ipad for $269. It’ll now be my indoor smart trainer display. thanks for the tip.

  18. Tanner G Horton

    May not help with affiliate links – but CostcoUS has garmin inreach for $299.99, 735 for $119.99, instinct 2 $249.99, Garmin 6 solar $439.99 (not as good as amazon right now), Fitbit Versa 4 $139.99

    • Tanner G Horton

      Also many competitive prices at Kohl’s on garmin fenix 6/s/x/solar and 7/s/x/+ plus you can earn $15 Kohl’s cash for every $50 spent – so that is like an extra $270 back in Kohl’s cash for Fenix 7x Sapphire Solar – Best Deal I have seen assuming you have other things at Koh’s to buy with the Kohl’s cash – also – limited time to use the Kohl’s cash.

  19. Peter Z.

    Minor point – link to review for HRM-PRO Plus goes to the HRM-PRO one (which does nicely have have notice and link at top to the Plus review). Amazon sale link goes to correct item.

  20. Dean

    FYI… your GoPro Hero11 review URL is linked to your Hero10 review, not Hero11.

  21. Dennis

    thank you for the discounted product list.

    Did not see the Garmin Venu 2 Plus on the discounted list.
    It must be selling well??

    • Yeah, somewhat surprised there as well. Or, they could be short on some specific component. Who knows.

      Either way, I’d wait. Just let Uncle Amazon have a bit of wine over Thanksgiving and he has a long multi-year history of going off the rails with Black Frida weekend deals on Venu products, even if Garmin themselves don’t.

  22. JimH

      Aloha Ira,

      Ray gave the green light on this purchase in an earlier post. IT seems he expected the refurbished one to hit that price but you found a gem. I thank you for your post as I just grabbed one. I had the refurbished in my cart and that price is still listed as higher…which is surprising.

      Here was Rays’ comment,

    • Hi Ira-

      Yup, it’s an incredible deal. I plan to pick one up at that price, at least, assuming it shows up for the same price here in Europe.

      Note it’s also available at other Wahoo dealers too, including two that support the site:

      Competitive Cyclist: link to avantlink.com

      REI: link to avantlink.com

      Using those links helps out here a fair bit. Cheers!

    • Tim

      Thanks Ray!!!! Smoking Deal and I snagged one to replace my OG KICKR Core. Looks like it’s sold out at REI and Competitive Cyclist. Cheers!!!

    BikeTiresDirect has the Garmin 1040 for $449.

    This sort of discounting so quickly should be a warning.

    It was the worst bit of electronics I’ve purchased in years and I returned mine because I couldn’t live with all the problems, but I know people want whatever is newest. If you are one of them, this might be the deal for you.

    Waiting for the Favero Assioma Duo to go on sale. Also debating whether those are a better deal than the Single Sided Rally Pedals. I wouldn’t put the Assioma’s on my MTB, but I could switch the rally’s to my MTB pedal bodies. Although I’d be using only a single sided power meter vs dual. Tend to ride my road bike far more than the mtb. Appreciate the thoughts

    RE: Ipad 9th Generation

    1. yeah- a great deal on a very functional and capable ipad. So I bought one.

    2. It crashed on me yesterday while using the MyWoosh app (which is pretty dang good for a free virtual cycling app). Contacted their customer support (yes, they have customer support). And, MyWoosh said that there’s not enough RAM in the iPad 9th Gen. 3Gb of RAM, and app requires 4Gb. The tech support person at MyWoosh said the are working on optimizing the app to expand their library of compatible devices. Oh- and they sent me my lost .fit file.

  35. npf

    Hey Ray, that lifeline table you liked is a good deal at CRC and Wiggle. Plenty of good deals in UK atm: on Fenix 6 pros refurbed on amazon for £249 and also some deals on the 955 series from £360-420 or so on sportshoes with a code, if that is helpful.

  36. ReHMn

    Hi Ray &Folks,

    Sorry for trolling this topic…

    Can someone fix a corrupted fit file for me?
    Upload via mobile app failed, Garmin Express failed too and Manual upload failed as well…
    FitRepairTool was unable to fix it, link to garmin.kiesewetter.nl is not reachable anymore and Garmin Support Center ran out of tips…


    • giorgitd

      You might try GOTOES:link to gotoes.org. The intended use case is a bit different, but I have a device that generates a corrupted FIT file occasionally. I import it to GOTOES and then just export it without taking advantage of the tweaks that can be applied. Every corrupted file I uploaded has been returned in a form readable by Garmin Connect. YMMV. No ocnnection to GOTOES other than happy user.

    • ReHMn

      Hi Giorgi,

      That is an excellent tool what had been adopted by Garmin long time ago…
      Unfortunately it allows export to GPX or CSV only and I need the corrected file in FIT, because it contains device info, etc….

      Would you be so kind correcting the file for me?
      If you could provide some email address, where I can send it…

    Do you think there will be any deals on the Garmin 955? I have a 935 I want to upgrade and am a little tempted to get a Fenix 7 since that one is one sale, but not sure I want the extra weight of the Fenix when I am running and swimming. I am hoping somebody will do a deal on the 955.

    • giorgitd

      I came here to ask the same Q. Really prefer the FR955, but might go for a FR255S + music if the deal was there and not on the 955.

    • I would not expect any FR955 deals, at least, not official ones.

      Garmin has released their planned Black Friday deals, which, in the context of the US side anyways, is what they “approve”. In the US, if a retailer violates that approved list (even by a penny), they get a stock-hold for 6 months. Thus, virtually no retailer will violate that. The rest of the world considers this practice highly illegal, thus, any deals you see in other regions are just simply retailers dancing to their own beat.

      However, the wild card is Amazon. Amazon will often play the game of making their own sale, and simply taking the stock-hold for 6 months. They just do the run-rate math and bulk-up with enough units ahead of time to cover them, and if they fall short, they can still fulfill through 3rd party sellers who do have stock.

      Historically we have seen Amazon do some wild stuff over Black Friday in this realm. So it’s really anyone’s guess if whatever algorithms or humans at Amazon decide to pick the FR955 as one of their units to toy with. We’ve already seen them do this for some Fenix 7 SKU’s (stock-hold penalties are on a per-SKU basis).

    • Dan

      The 955 is 9% off on wiggle and sportsshoes. There is a 15% off code for sportsshoes if you search hot deals site.

    The regular Suunto 9 Peak is now on sale straight from the Suunto EU website. It lands at €369,- which sounds pretty solid. The 5 Peak is offered for €199,- directly from Suunto.

    By product is it won’t ship from a remote 3rd party warehouse so CO2 footprint remains moderate if that’s if any importance…

    • Nice! I’ll get it added in.

      Generally speaking, all Amazon.de/NL purchases that are labeled as fulfilled by Amazon (which is pretty much anything I’d link to), are fulfilled here locally in the EU, and usually specifically the DE/NL warehouses.

      If you’re in mainland EU, that’ll be pretty close. Whereas if you’re in Finland, that’d be closer – though perhaps they’ve got a distribution center in the Netherlands, I don’t remember one previously. Cheers!

    • Arnold

      I do think Suunto ships all from Finland. Reason to note is that Suunto is the first to be vocal/open on this subject which I can appreciate. Even in the BF madness that can be something to take into consideration.

      On another topic… Have seen quite some prices increase over the last couple of weeks. That won’t be anything new but can be an indication on where some of the prices will eventually land somewhere at the end of this week.

  40. Sean K.

    Thanks Ray. That deal on the Rally SPDs Single was too good to pass-up plus my REI discount. Ordered it via this blog posting!

  41. Marcin

    Garmin Varia 515/516 on European Amazon for about 130E, quite nice price I guess.

  42. ChrisK

    Best Buy has 256G Extreme PRO SDXC 200MB/s for $37.99.

  43. AK

    any chance you are going to update your buying guide for gps watches this year?

  44. Reggie

    Tri Sports has the Edge 1040 for $450, solar at $675 and Karoo 2 at $280.

    • Weird, I don’t see that listed – I just see regular prices. :-/

      Those previous prices would surprise me, as Trisports would basically get in trouble from Garmin for a MAP violation on these products, which in turn would put them in a sticky situation as they’d get a 6-month ban from buying those units from Garmin. Whereas Amazon can ‘handle’ the MAP violation by simply buying 6-months worth of products ahead of time.

    • Reggie

      Still see them. A location thing maybe?

  45. Jim

    I got an email from Wahoo saying they had sale, Kickr bike $1999.00 click on the link and its $3999.00 Canadian wonder why its so much more in Canada than the USA? The Canadian exchange isn’t 50%.

    • SG

      i hope there will be offers in europe too (2000€) but i doubt it, still 2999€ on the webpage.

    • RE: Canadian prices

      According to my Canadian wife, Canadian law requires that all KICKR Bike’s be shipped with at least 50 gallons of Maple Syrup, which, both costs money for the wood-juice itself, but also the shipping of said juice.

      RE: European

      As for Europe, it looks like the Wahoo KICKR Bike GBP sales have clicked over today, so I’d expect to see EU sales soon. I have no idea why they’d do them on different days.

    • SG

      saw that, its 2199 pounds which is the same price as last sale several weeks ago, which translates to 2499€. i dont think we’ll see 2000euro, so i pulled the trigger for 2499€ ;)

    • Yeah, I’d say that given Wahoo hasn’t launched sales on other EU sites yet, I’d probably still wait. But that’s just me, also waiting to buy one…

    • sg

      price has just changed to 2499euros on the german site, nothing about black friday sale yet but i think thats it, as expected :(

      link to de-eu.wahoofitness.com

      as a european customer i feel neglected by wahoo :( why no 2000euro deal:(

    • Hmm, odd. This doesn’t match what I have it should be. Let me do some poking…

    • Ciprian

      I would be curios if anything comes up as 2500 EUR is a good price but not as good as 2000 USD :)

    • Dave

      Sigma has the kickr bike at £2199 and the 10% off code emailed out to previous customers stacks on top, to give £1979 which seems pretty good. Might even be worth our continental cousins making a trip to enjoy some virtual British cycling!

    • Marc

      Can’t find any deal below 2499€ for the Kickr bike at UE, but I’ve found the TACX Neo Bike for 2.200€ aprox. I’m not sure if go for the Tacx or maybe we’ll see further discounts for the Kickr…

    • It’s showing on the Wahoo site for 2499EUR, though, I’m getting clarity on why it’s not showing the price they previously said it should.

      link to eu.wahoofitness.com

    • fiatlux

      It says “SALE: €2,499.99” so I guess the chances that they come up with a lower price for Black Friday are slim but let’s see tomorrow.

      The Tacx Neo Bike and Stages SB20 are both available around 2200€.

      The Zcyle Zbike (a rebranded BKool Smart Bike 2) is available at an incredible 960€. I wonder if the latter is considered any good…

    • Yeah, I’d agree. Either way, I’m willing to wait a day or so. Obviously, everyone in the US is doing the Turkey thing today. So no answer today, and who knows if at all tomorrow.

      As for ZCycle, I haven’t done any in-house testing on it. I’ve poked at it slightly at trade shows, but, didn’t seem in the same league here.

    • fiatlux

      The few Zbike reviews found online (mostly Italian and Spanish videos on Youtube) present it as a good smart bike with great value for money but with, understandably, a few shortcomings. The main ones seems to be:
      – no freehub (the pedals keep turning with the flywheel)
      – virtual gear shifters with no haptic feedback and significant actuation delay, which means it is easy to “overshoot” gear changes

      Difficult to tell how hard it would be to get used to these or whether these are real show stopper.

    • Yeah, roughkly akin to most spin bikes in that sense.

    • For EU folks (and also I suppose US folks that didn’t buy earlier), the KICKR Bike V1 refurb units are down to 1,999EUR right now on Wahoo’s site. These come with a full warranty/etc.

      I ordered one.

    • Sg

      Lucky u, its back to 2299

    • Are you sure? Shows right now as 1,999EUR (and 1,999USD):

    • SG

      no ur right, but the german page is still 2299

    • Actually, it’s even more crazy that that:

      A) Setting Germany as the country and language as English shows 1999
      B) Setting Germany as the country and language as German, shows 2299

      There’s effectively a German language tax of 300EUR. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

      (Obviously, just a bug…)

    hope there’ll be more entry-level direct drive trainer deals in europe *fingers crossed*

    thanks for the write up!

  48. Yesterday I picked up a Garmin Epix Gen2 (Sapphire/Black Carbongray Titanium #010-02582-30) from euro 1099 for 795 at Christ Watches. Today the price is back to over euro 1000. Not sure if it was an error (same price was online as in the physical shop I visited to pick it up), but worth to keep an eye on if the price drops again and you’re in the market for this model!

  49. Mike S.

    Oh man, I r-e-a-l-l-y want that Epix 2. But I should probably get a trainer since I don’t have one. Was going to get the Saris H3 but noticed the KICKR V5 is almost the same price. I’m glad I double-checked before pulling the trigger! Getting the KICKR! Thanks Ray!

  50. Dean Liu

    Was REALLY hoping the Tacx NEO motion plates would go on sale. MSRP of US$300 is too much for me to justify… :(

  51. Another really good one: Fenix 7 Solar Sapphire for 649.99 at Galeria (Germany’s biggest department store).

  52. Timo

    Am I the only one not seeing the Euro deals? Thanks

    • Lowlevel

      There aren’t any specific in the Euro Deals! section yet.
      Some, but not all deals from Amazon in the list wil work in Amazon EU (de, fr, it, co.uk, es, nl) as well.

      In the comments there are a couple of good deals pointed out to Europe local deals like those from Sepp (Germany) right above your post. Or some others for UK. It’ll take you a little more time but still way less than finding them yourself in the internet.

  53. Dan

    The Garmin 245 Music is down to $187 on Amazon now. New model coming?

  54. Jon O

    I picked up the Kickr Bike v1 from Wahoo’s site earlier today. What a deal!

    I tried to support DCR by visiting Competitive Cyclist and REI but it was sold at both places there. The lesson is that when Ray speaks people listen.

    Happy Holidays

    I’m looking for a smartwatch for my wife that is able to connect to the HR (Wahoo) strap.
    I have Wahoo Rival and I suggested this one, but she doesn’t like its look.

    Any good recommendations?

  56. dan

    re: the core body temp sensor you first mentioned hands on with in 2020 and nothing since. Specifically, the mention of a ‘bundle’ with an HRM. Since you have done EXTENSIVE HRM comparisons and testing but there has never been the mention of you using or hands on with the specific Cardiosport TP5 HRM, is it then assumed that the Cardiosport HRM is at least ‘good enough’? The only mention of cardiosport in your search is all 2012 stuff when it was built into clothing.

    Why have there been no Garmin cycling map updates in Europe for over a year?

    On my 530 is still the map of autumn 2021 with the street material from the summer 2021…

    Shouldn’t there actually be semi-annual updates, as in the rest of the world?

    Wahoo UK now selling the V1 KICKR Bike for £1999!

    I’d already ordered off Tredz a couple of days ago as I didn’t think it would go lower that £2199, but they’ve just price matched and refunded me the £200 :-)

    • Neil Jones

      Headwind fan also £184, cheapest I think I’ve seen it?

      Doesn’t look like there’s any Black Friday Euro-love from Wahoo on the KICKR Bike though – still €2499 for EU despite the double UK price drop this week.

    • Yeah…grr…waiting for EU price to drop. Ready to buy!

      That does seem cheap for headwind, I can’t remember the GBP price being cheaper, but I don’t mentally track the headwind GBP price day to day.

    Hi Ray, great list and thanks for compiling.
    For anyone (EU based), interested in the Lifeline trainer table the price has reduced to €60.53 on Wiggle as of late Friday.

  90. Alex

    Worth noting: Strava is going the opposite route. No Black Friday deals, not even the two fre bonus months of previous years. Instead: A MASSIVE PRICE INCREASE. Yearly membership in Europe has risen from 59,99 to 74,99 a year!

    • Hmm, I don’t see that. On my account, it shows it’ll renew at $59USD next March (in the account settings page).

      Likewise, on one of my secondary test accounts (which isn’t Premium, but I use to occasionally validate things), I got a renewal offer on Friday for two months free if I buy 12 months. Total price there is 69EUR.

    • Martin Richards

      From the UK, I’m seeing 54.99 GBP with 2 months free which is about 64 Euros (lower than your test account) or 66 USD (higher than your main account), so goodness knows what the right price is!

  91. Florian

    The Garmin HRM-Pro Plus is 83€ at Amazon Germany. Delivery is currently slated for January but given the price it could still be worth it for some.

    I just noticed the FR955 Solar in Whitestone is listed at 10% off on Amazon, coming in at $540. I guess the hit to inventory is by SKU, so if they discount the white, then they are only penalized on White?

My wife and I have similar road bikes (9speed) but we are still pretty novice bikers looking for some winter exercise perhaps with Zwift. Is the Direto XR a good choice for us? My thought was a direct drive would allow us to share more easily.
