SIS energy gels (was £49, now £20.99) and hydro tabs (was £21 now £12.49)
Summer riding is hot and hungry work, so most riders will use energy gels to top up their carb levels and hydration tablets which top up lost salts and minerals, reducing the chance of cramp as well as fatigue.
SIS is a high quality brand, and you can get a box of 35 gels reduced by 57%, whilst the dissolvable tabs are down 41%.
Fitness Foam Rollers For Deep Tissue Massage was £37.99 now £18.99
Cycling can cause specific areas to become tight, shortening muscles and making them weak. Foam rolling can help to reduce this tightness, in much the same way as a massage would – except you can do it at home and (once you’ve bought the roller), it’s free.
It’ll never be as targeted or precise as a sports massage carried out by a pro, but getting into a routine of rolling for 10 minutes each day could reduce your chance of injury.

Top tips for getting the best Amazon Prime Day cycling deals in 2019
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…
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.
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, quality, longevity, of course still stands.
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.
