I've picked out Top 10 deals in both the US and the UK, which you find just below. Stateside, these include an incredible 46% discount on Oakley's Jawbreaker sunglasses and almost as much off Garmin's rugged Enduro smartwatch - which has hit the lowest price I've seen yet.

Our Top 10 picks: USA
1. Wahoo Elemnt Rival GPS Watch:
was $329.99, now $199.77 at Mike's Bikes
The Wahoo Elemnt Rival smartwatch impressed us when we reviewed it thanks to its intuitive design and accurate heart rate monitoring. Now, at 39% off, it's certainly worth a look for those wanting more data on their wrist!
2. Tacx Neo 2T smart trainer:
was $1,399.99, now $899.99 at Amazon
When we reviewed the Tacx Neo 2T last year we concluded, "This is the most enjoyable trainer to use." We certainly still stand by that, especially as the only major quibble at the time was the price. However with this hefty discount that fades to very little to complain about.
This $500 saving is one of the best prices we've seen, especially given this is Tacx's range-topping smart trainer, which makes the 36% discount all the more compelling.
3. Oakley Sutro Lite sunglasses:
was $194.00, now $139.95 at Amazon
Worn by cycling superstar Remco Evenepoel, the Oakley Sutro Lites are a typically modern pair of glasses - the large, wide lens delivers great vision and protection on the bike but still looks good in more casual setting. You can read our review of the Oakley Sutro for more details but this deal, which puts them under $100, is certainly worthy of top 10 spot.
4. Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II:
was $279.00, now $199.00 at Walmart
The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II provide top-tier sound quality and noise canceling, perfect for gym sessions and indoor riding. On top of that though, the earbuds feature 'aware' mode which still allows you to hear traffic when you are out riding. For those who love good sound quality, this 29% off deal is well worth a look.
6. Cervelo Aspero 5 Ekar Gravel Bike:
was $6,000.00, now $3,600.00 at Competitive Cyclist
Competitive Cyclist has a huge 40% off the Cervelo Aspero 5 Ekar, as ridden by Australian Gravel Champion, Connor Sens. The Aspero sits as Cervelo's race-oriented gravel bike with 43mm tire clearance, and aggressive geometry. It's not just the Ekar model on discount either - Competitive Cyclist has a number of Aspero models on offer.
7. Garmin Enduro:
was $799.99, now $479.80 at Amazon
Not quite at its lowest price ever but 47% off retail is still a significant discount for the rugged and durable Enduro. Like all high-end Garmin watches it's loaded with features to aid training and navigation - and it also boasts an impressive 80-hour battery life. This is a deal you probably want to act on now.
8. Beats Studio Buds:
was $149.95, now $99.99 at Amazon
If bone conduction isn't for you and noise cancelling is a higher priority – I think the Beats' Studio Buds are a great option for hard workouts. Lightweight and unobtrusive, they're super comfortable – and with an IPX4 rating, they're sweat resistant too. Currently with 33% off retail.
9. Sportful Supergiara Thermal jersey:
was $159.99, now from $89.98 at Backcountry
I'm a big fan of Sportful kit and this long sleeve gravel jersey is no exception. It's made using a double-layer thermal fabric, with the outer layer there to combat the wind. It makes it pretty versatile, working as a stand alone jersey in milder winter weather or as a great mid layer for when it get's seriously cold. Now only available in the berry blue and black colorways.
10. Castelli Perfetto RoS 2:
was $279.99, now from from $195.99 at Chain Reaction
The Perfetto RoS jacket has a loyal fan base - including here at Cycling Weekly - and with good reason. The Gore-Tex Infinium fabric protects against the wind, rain and cold but the Perfetto still fits and feels much like a regular race-fit jersey. Castelli quality comes at a price but this deal allows you to improve your winter cycling wardrobe without breaking the bank. Now with as much as 53% off!

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar:
was $799.99, now $699.99 at Amazon
The Fenix is one of Garmin's premium smartwatches - and it's on its biggest ever discount at Amazon. It's got full functionality with TOPO maps, Garmin Pay, health metric tracking and, of course, solar recharging - and much, much more. You can check out our full review of the Garmin Fenix 7S Solar over here.
Garmin Forerunner 245 Music: was
$349.99, now $199.99 at Amazon
Arguably the Edge 530 of Garmin's GPS watch range, it provides the heart rate and GPS tracking you need for an effective workout across a huge range of sports – as well as storing music and other smartwatch functions. The performance versus price ratio is particularly good with this model.
Garmin Vivoactive 4S:
was $329.99, now $179.99 at Amazon
I think this is the best GPS crossover watch for anyone wanting a more subtle ride/gym fitness tracker. Monitor the usual movement data, along with energy levels, menstrual cycle, sleep, hydration and more. Download your own music playlist (subscription required) ,and either track or follow a workout on the screen. Safety and incident detection onboard with real time location sent to emergency contacts. Recently dropped in price again, now 45% off retail.
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro:
was $599.99, now $499.99 at Amazon
Packed with features, the Fenix 6 does everything you want. Beyond just tracking your rides and runs (along with many other sports) it comes preloaded with TOPO maps to help guide you on your way. To drill into the details, you can read our review here. The price has been fluctuating recently and currently stands at $100 off retail.
Fitbit Sense Advanced Smartwatch:
was $249.95, now $212.99 at Best Buy
This Fitbit Sense has the ability to track all the usual fitness metrics, but also the capabilities to deep dive in to health data such as stress responses, monitor heart rhythm, and help you stay alert if you fall out of set parameters. With on board GPS, Bluetooth for hands-free calls and built in Google Assist or Amazon Alexa, this could be the idea cross over fitness/life organizing watch.
Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch:
was $149.95, now $114.00 at Amazon
The onboard GPS makes this more advanced than a regular fitness tracker, with real-time pace and distance visible. Keep on top of your health goals with the heart rate monitor and the ability to receive a daily readiness score, to make sure you're fully rested. Google Assist or Amazon Alexa built in and 6 months Fitbit Premium trial to boot.
was $249.99, now $164.20 at Amazon
The Garmin Instinct is the brand's most rugged GNSS watch, designed and constructed to US Military standards for thermal, shock and water resistance (up to 100 meters) - which I think makes this a great all rounder for anyone who's pretty tough on their equipment. Multi-satellite receiving should give you better pin point accuracy on tracking, ideal for dense forest or urban canyons. Tracks all the usual fitness data and comes with an extra long battery life of up to 14 days between charges. Another price drop means its price is now reduced by 34%.
Garmin Edge 1030 Plus:
now $599.99, now $347.00 at Amazon
We really rated the Garmin Edge 1030 when we reviewed it, finding it's features and functions very user friendly. It's one of the largest Garmin bike computers, but this does make maps and other data metrics, such as power, easy to read. It gains all of Garmin's nifty virtual coaching features, and is more off road friendly thanks to a specific mode setting. This discount is a fair one, but be aware that the brand has also just bought out it's latest flagship model the Garmin Edge 1040. This means the 1030 is no longer the range topper, so discounted units are more likely in a few shops, so check the quick links above before you buy.
Stages Cycling Dash L200:
was $330.00, now $246.93 at REI
I haven't played with this version, but thought the Stages Dash M200 was a great option for data. It features an impressive screen, but lacked decent maps, so the Dash L200 seems like the ideal upgrade, especially since there's now a 25% saving on the RRP .
Garmin Varia cycling Rearview:
was $149.99, now $119.99 at Amazon
The Rearview system from Garmin pairs with either a Garmin bike computer or your smartphone to alert you audibly, and visually and physically with vibration with a compatible Garmin head unit, to traffic approaching you from behind up to 153 yards (140 meters) away.
Garmin Edge 830:
was $399.99, now $269.99 at Amazon
This is the previous iteration of the enduringly popular Edge 800 series, with the touchscreen being the standout feature next to the more affordable Edge 530. Our testers were impressed, rating it 4.5 stars. Another recent price drop means it's now 33% off retail.
