Amazon Prime Day takes place on Tuesday July 11 - and we've got a heads up on the best deals for cyclists and will be drip feeding them out from Monday July 10
Amazon Prime Day is a flash sale taking place online. Like Black Friday, it lasts more than a day: a few deals have been announced already, but most will appear between 6pm BST Monday July 10 and close of play on Tuesday July 11.
Each item is announced in advanced, before the piece is released for a limited time only – with a handy count down clock so you know exactly how long you’ve got to swipe it up.
The day is designed to draw attention to the benefits of having an Amazon Prime membership, and unfortunately, you do need to be a member of the special club to benefit from the deals.
Don’t worry, though, as Amazon is still running its free Amazon Prime 30-day-trial so you can still sign up and benefit from the discounts.

Amazon Prime Day cycling deals: the best deals
Deals will be removed and added constantly – here’s a look at what’s available now (at time of writing..), and what’s to come. We’ll be updating this page constantly, so bookmark it and come back if you’re deal hunting…
GoPro Hero5 Session action camera
If you’re looking for an action camera, then there’s a deal for you here.
The GoPro Hero5 Session Action Camera is a compact model that captures 4k video and 10MP pictures in Single, Burst or Time Lapse modes. GoPro has kept the design simple, with a one-button design and voice control and the waterproof camera offers image stabalisation.
The Amazon Prime Day deal is specifically on the travel bundle (with case, floating grip and headstrap) that’s reduced to £244.99 – that’s a 36% saving on the RRP of £381.05 and a saving of £136.06.
Muc-Off Dry Chain Lube 120ml
If you’ve not got a pot of dry chain lube in your cupboard, it’s well worth getting one, especially now we’re into summer. Unlike wet lube, dry lube doesn’t pic up nearly as much dirt and grit from the roads so it’s the perfect choice when it’s dry in the summer.
Muc-Off Bike Cleaner 1L/5L/25L
Muc-Off’s stuff is some of the best bike cleaner around, so the fact its now in the sale is a reason to rejoice. Amazon are currently selling it in 1L, 5L and, if you’re a fan of value, 25L tubs. Bargain.
It’s currently £23.85 on Amazon, but that will drop when Amazon release the official price in the next few minutes.
Muc-Off Chamois Cream
Treat you, and your rear end to some chammy cream. Trust us, it’ll help keep you in the saddle on those long, long days.
Up to 20% off on Gore Bike Wear
Gore Bike Wear make some high quality cycling kit designed to keep riders comfortable all year round. There’s deals across the range, particularly on items like soft shell jackets and windstoppers.
BTR Waterproof High Visibility Backpack Cover
Keep dry and bright on your commute with this BTR cover – it’s waterproof and comes in a high-vis yellow- orange, black with reflective trim or fully reflective silver.
A pull cord keeps it well locked to the bag when in use and it can fold into an outer mesh pocket the rest of the time.
The RRP is £14.99, but it’s down to £10 until the offer ends at around 8pm.
Fitbit Flex 2 fitness wristband on Deal of the Day
The untrained eye might see the Fitbit Flex 2 as being £55.65 (down from £79.99) – but click on the ‘deal of the day’ option and it’s £37.79.
The Fitbit Flex 2 fitness wristband is more dedicated to everyday use, but still has its cycling uses thanks to its SmartTrack technology.
Fitbit finally introduced SmartTrack technology to some of its trackers, including the Flex, meaning you no longer have to manually input your cycle training in the Fitbit site. Instead, it now knows when you start an activity and can log it.
Over a third off men’s cycling kits
Cycling kit that works with you on the bike makes a big difference, and there are a few pieces on offer that could keep you well dressed for a while. The Inbike jersey is made from 100% fast drying polyester, with a mesh fabric that contains tiny pinprick holes for breathability.
The shorts feature a 3D pad to keep you comfortable on the saddle and both items have anti-slip treatment on the hems.
Prices vary depending upon colour and size, but the medium yellow and black gear will set you back £28.79 and the others are all reduced, too.
36% off hydration tablets
It’s important to stay hydrated on the bike – and with the hot weather we’ve had lately, even the un-sweatiest of riders will be losing fluid.Hydration tablets keep your electrolyte levels topped up, and these ones from ORS also contain glucose for additional energy.
The offer is on the blackcurrant flavour, and Prime members get 6 tubes for £26.95 until 12pm (RRP: £41.94).
If it’s not up your street, there are plenty more nutrition offers now and coming – check ’em out here.
Kärcher K4 Full Control Home Pressure Washer
Defiantly an item to ‘use with care’ when it comes to bike washing, but though not always recommended – a lot of people still choose a pressure washer. If you’re one of them – this is a deal to consider.
The stand alone unit is on a ‘deal of the day’ offer, but you can choose to purchase it with a bike and car cleaning set, that features some soft brushes.
Kinetic Road Machine Smart Bike Trainer
This unit still uses a fluid resistance system, but combines with sensors to provide an app-based power training experience.
Wahoo Fitness Blue SC Speed and Cadence Sensor
More data means more effective tracking of your fitness levels – and the Wahoo sensor can help you collect even more.
The sensor tracks speed and cadence, linking up to your iPhone, Android and/or bike computer via Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+. You can also use it when training indoors via Zwift or Trainer Road.
The unit uses a CR2032 battery, and mounts using rubber bands or zip ties, to any chainstay. A magnet is attached to one of your spokes, with every revolution tracked when the two connect.
It’s already reduced from £49.99 to £39.99, but the Amazon Prime Day price is £34.99 – representing a saving of 30% – the offer lasts til about 1pm.
Muc-Off Wet Lube
No cyclist’s home is complete without a bottle of quality bike lube.
It’s important to apply a thin layer to your chain after you’ve cleaned your bike – this will repel water and cut down the risk of rust developing, and will help to offer smoother shifting as well as reducing any watts lost through inefficiency.
Muc-Off’s is fully bio-degradable and promises to provide a durable defence against corrosion. The deal is on the wet lube, which is already reduced from £7 to £4.48.
However, for the special Amazon Prime Day price slashes the price further, to £3.58 (that’s 49%) but only until 1pm.
APEMAN Sports Action Camera
Action cameras are becoming more and more popular, with cyclists using them to record their adventures and create short videos. They also make handy companions for commuters as an insurance back up in-case of an incident.
This version comes with a helmet adaptor base in the box, is fully waterproof and comes with a 1080P HD 12MP camera with 170 degree wide-angle lens.
You can shoot video as well as capture images and the camera can run for 120 minutes after a full three hour charge and supports a micro SD card up to 32GB.
The camera is already reduced from £59.99 to £33.99. However, it’ll be available at a special deal to Amazon Prime members on Tuesday July 11 from around 6pm on Tuesday July 11.
Science in Sport Go Isotonic Energy Gel Selection Box
Keeping your energy levels topped up is important, and SIS has created this selection box of 20 in five different flavours.
The SIS Go Isotonic gels are designed to be consumed without water, providing a 60g hit of carbohydrate as well as fluid and electrolytes in a quick and easy package.

Top tips for getting the best Amazon Prime Day cycling deals
Browsing Amazon for deals is always a bit of a trial – and it might well be even harder on Amazon Prime Day. Here’s our tips to help you navigate the sales…
Join Amazon Prime for free right now
That’s right, the only way to benefit from these deals is to sign up to Prime membership. But it’s ok, because Amazon is still running its free Amazon Prime 30-day-trial which will still get you all the discounts from Amazon Prime Day.
Bookmark THIS PAGE
Deals will be released every five minutes, and it could all get just a little bit confusing. On this page, we’ll highlight the very best deals. We’ll have an advanced warning – leaving us plenty of time to pick out the best offers.
Write a shopping list
Put pen to paper so that you’re clear on what you actually need before the big day. Don’t be too specific – because you can’t guarantee what’s going to be on offer – but ‘helmet camera’ or ‘gps cycling computer with maps’ will help you to avoid the temptation of splashing out on an extra bike bag that you don’t need.
Set yourself a budget
It’s easy to overspend when there are big deals on offer, so start your shopping with a clear idea of your max spend. You should also be sure to check returns policies are not affected by the sales.
Bear in mind the price difference when reading reviews
We’ve got hundreds of reviews on our site, and they’re designed to help you decide if a product is right for you.
However, all items are reviewed with the RRP – or price at time of writing – in mind. Therefore, remember when reading that comments about value for money need to be taken with a pinch of salt if you’re not looking at the same item with 50 per cent off.
Comments on everything else: effectiveness, usability, quality, longevity, of course still stand.
Free Amazon Prime membership trial
Sadly, the deals are only available to those who have Prime membership, but you can get a free Amazon Prime 30-day-trial here.
Having a membership costs £79 a year – but it gets you fast and free same day delivery on a massive range of products, as well as access to free music, TV and film.
There are other perks, like the ‘Kindle owners’ lending library’ – where you can borrow books for free, unlimited photo storage in the ‘Amazon Cloud Drive’, and access to the ‘Prime Pantry’ for easy grocery ordering in one place.
Extra Amazon Prime deals
As well as the upcoming deals, and offer on Amazon Prime, the online giant is offering savings on ‘Amazon Music Unlimited’ – namely four months of membership for £0.99. Like Spotify, the service allows you to stream any music you like – which is pretty handy for those long winter turbo sessions we all know will arrive eventually.
Until July, Prime members will also have the chance to win £100,000 in cash by streaming Amazon Video via a Fire TV, Fire TV Stick or the Amazon App on a games console.
Prime members can also enjoy up to 25 per cent off at Prime Pantry from July 3 to August 6. Prime Pantry stocks a wide range of edible delicacies from major brands – ideal for time and energy starved cyclists. Finally, members can save up to 40 per cent on a Kindle Unlimited membership.
