We're currently right around the winter solstice, the darkest time of year. If you are in need of a new indoor trainer, you might have thought you'd be paying a premium right now. 

And, true, the deals aren't as good as we've seen them go right now, but we've still hunted out the discounts that are still knocking about – and you can still get as much as 23% off, if you know where to look...

We've rounded up the best deals on Tacx indoor trainers that we've been able to find in the USA and the UK. But if it's really some present inspiration you're after, you can pop over to our Christmas gift guide over here.

Tacx Neo 2T Smart Turbo Trainer

This is Tacx' top of the range model and one of the best indoor trainers out there. You can read all about its specs and how it compares with the competition in our guide to the best indoor smart trainers over here. 

USA: was $1,399.99 now $1,199.99 at Mike's Bikes

UK: was £1,199 now £1,079 with free gift at Sigma Sports

If you are looking for an option that's a little easier on the wallet, then don't over look this great 30% saving on the Tacx Flux 2 in the UK.

Sadly we can only find that reverse price tag in the UK, but there's still a decent 20% offer to be taken advantage of.

Tacx Flux S Direct Drive Smart Trainer

Tacx's entry level smart trainer is one of the best options on the market – when only comparing list prices. You can read how the trainer stacked up against the competition in our entry-level smart trainer grouptest over here. 

USA: was $749.99, now $599.99 at REI 

UK: was £599.99 now £516.00 with free gift at Sigma Sports 

While rummaging around the internet, we also spotted the entry level Tacx Flux S trainer for almost £100 cheaper than the RRP - and it also comes with the same free Vel Turbo Trainer Bundle gift as the more expensive Tacx Neo 2T gets, which retails at £55. While it's a good offer, it's still £10 more than the next model up, so you've got to really want that bundle to make it worth while.  

That said, in the US there's still $120 price difference between them. Although we haven't ridden the two trainers side-by-side, from the sound of it, unless you are a particularly heavy rider with an insatiable appetite for climbs, then this really would be a great deal to snap up while lasts!

USA: was

Tacx Flux 2 Direct Drive Smart Trainer

Very similar in form to the entry-level Flux S, the Flux 2 packs some upgraded internals. The max power is 2,000w vs 1,500w, the max slope is 16% vs 10% and the accuracy is ±2.5% vs ±3%. Typically we'd recommend saving some money and going with the Flux S – but when the higher spec model is discounted cheaper, there's really no reason to chose anything else.

USA: was $899.00, now $719.99 at Amazon 

UK: was £700.00, now £565.00 at Sigma Sports

We understand that not everybody needs, or indeed wants, an all-singing, all-dancing smart trainer. If you're looking for something more portable to take with you  to races for pre-race warm up or a post-ride warm down, then a straightforward folding  turbo is ideal - just like the Tacx Boost. Equally, if you're pushed for space at home the simplicity and smaller size of Boost is also likely to be appealing. Finally the Boost is a solid choice if you're new to indoor training and want to get started without breaking the bank - just remember to check the specs to see if your bike is compatible.

We found the Boost on sale in both the UK and USA, with an impressive £70 saving on one side of the pond and $60 reduction on the other.

USA: was

Tacx Boost turbo trainer

Wheel-on trainers still have their appeal, especially of you're short of space. The folding design of the Boost not only makes it easy to store but also means that in a couple of clicks you're up and running and ready to train. Features include 10 resistance levels, controlled by a handlebar mounted lever. Add a speed sensor and you can also connect to your favorite training apps. Current deal price saves you 30% off retail.

USA: was $299.99, now $239.99 at Backcountry

UK: was £229.99, now £159.99 at Wiggle

Before the invention of the turbo, rollers were the best way to train during the winter as well as warm and down at races. Despite the advent of the smart trainer, rollers remain and for many cyclists their simplicity is their appeal. Not only are they a breeze to set up they also help with your balance and bike handling skills - a good reason why professionals have used them for many years. 

Searching for deals we found the Tacx Antares model reduced in both the UK and the USA.

USA: was

Tacx Antares rollers

The Antares rollers are simple to set up and aid your bike handling skills as well as your fitness. The conical shaped rollers help to keep your bike centered, which makes for a safer session. Handily, the rollers also retract to just 80cm in length, allowing for easy storage. This current deal saves you almost £30 off retail or 20% if you're in the USA.

USA: was $199.99, now $159.99 at Jenson USA

UK best deal: was £164.99, now £135 at Evans Cycles

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
