Amazon has expanded its sale season to now include the Big Spring Sale, or Amazon Spring Deal Days if you're in the UK.

It's good news for cyclists. While Amazon's sales don't typically score so highly for good quality cycling clothing, bikes and accessories, the site does serve up some great deals on cycling tech.

Elite Direto-XR T smart trainer

US: was $699.99, now $492.00
UK: was £599.99, now £448.99

With a maximum resistance of 3,600w, the Direto is a great choice for sprinters and anyone who enjoys hard efforts on the trainer. That said the maximum gradient is 24%, so it's equipped to deal with the steepest roads on Zwift. With 30% off in the US, and 25% in the UK it's a good opportunity to grab a bargain - and you can read our full review of the Elite Direto-XR T for more information.

Garmin Forerunner 255

Garmin Forerunner 255

US: was $399.99, now $299.99
UK: was £299.99, now £222.89

The Forerunner is a great choice if you're after a smartwatch that gives you all you need - without the features you don't. That means you get an accurate GPS and an effective heart monitor and all with Garmin's usually excellent functionality. You can read out review of the Forerunner 255 for more detail. Here with 25% off.

Tacx Neo 2T smart trainer

US: was $1,399, now $999.99 

The Neo 2T doesn't come cheap, but this saving of almost $400 does make it a little more affordable - especially when you consider you're getting what we described in our review as the 'most enjoyable trainer to use'.

Garmin Epix 2

Garmin Epix 2

US: was $899.99, now $599.99
UK:
now £453.00

Unlike the Forerunner above, the Epix is a little more 'bells and whistles' and  is suited to those who like to get off the beaten track thanks to its rugged case and slew of TOPO maps. With as much as 33% off, it's a great deal.

Apple Airpods second generation

Apple Airpods second generation

US: were $129.00, now $99.00
UK:
were £129.99, now £99.99

Typically Apple products don't get heavily discounted, so 23% off one of the best pairs of headphones for indoor cycling represents a good deal. If you want some more detail you can can also read why our colleagues at What Hi-Fi? also rated them so highly.

Garmin Edge 830 

Garmin Edge 830 

US: was $399.99, now $285.87
UK:
now £360.00

The release of the 840 means this isn't the latest model, but it still has plenty of the features we've always liked in the  Edge 800 series, including the easy-to-use touchscreen. Our testers were impressed, rating it 4.5 stars. This deal of 29% off translates to a saving of over hundred bucks.
