Black Friday deals have already begun - and we reckon this offer on the premium GPS is a corker

TAGS:

The Garmin Edge 1000 cycling GPS computer was recently usurped from its position at the top of the Edge family tree by the Garmin Edge 1030 – but it’s still a premium option with tons of features. Thanks to some very early Black Friday offers, now you can get one for £274.99.

The Edge is reduced at Chain Reaction Cycles, by 45%. It’s also available at Wiggle – which merged with CRC earlier this year – for a penny more at £275.

With an RRP of £499.99, the closest prices at competitor retailers are over £340 (though you can snap it up for the same price at Amazon). Whilst it’s understandable that some shoppers might feel sceptical of Black Friday deals being released quite so early, this one represents a genuine saving against the cycling specific competition.
