Here’s your complete guide to sports tech deals, sorted by category and updated constantly throughout the day, often hourly with new deals.
Most links here help support the site – which I greatly appreciate! These four DC Rainmaker partner sites here are also running huge Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on sports gear to supplement your sports tech addition – Backcountry.com, CompetitiveCyclist.com, REI, and Wiggle:
If you know of a sports tech deal (gadget-focused), feel free to drop a note in the comments or in the contact form. As long as it’s not spam-like, I’m more than happy to share it out! 🙂

Watches & Wearables:
This covers anything you can wear that’s watch-like or activity band-like, including sensors. Generally speaking, you’ll mostly find deals here that are on things I’ve written about in the past. So you won’t find a deal on some random non-sports tech watch here, or on socks. Unless the socks have some crazy sensor or something in them.

Cycling Gear & Trainers:
Got a bike? Then this section is for you. Everything from bike computers to bike lights to trainers, it’s all here. I won’t generally be adding things like brake cables or bike seats here, but if I find a good deal on a cassette to stack on that new direct drive trainer you just bought, I’ll probably list it here.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Other site||Sale Notes|

$ 799 (incl cassette)
|$ 059||Amazon||REI||This is by far the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the Elite Suito or Suito-T trainers. Note: The Suito-T is the same exact trainer as the Suito, except without the cassette pre-installed.|
|Elite Tuo Smart Trainer – $ 233 off!
|$ 347||Amazon||REI||⚡This is by far the lowest price we’ve seen on the wheel-on Tuo. While most trainers have shifted towards direct drive, this is a good option at the lower end.|
|Garmin Edge 1030 Plus – $ 200 off
|$ 391||Amazon||⚡While the newer Edge 1040 came out this past summer, the Edge 1030 Plus is still an incredibly solid bike computer – arguably the 2nd best bike computer (behind the Edge 1040).|
|Garmin Edge 530 Cycling GPS – $ 50 off!
|$ 249||Amazon||REI||⚡ This matches last year’s Black Friday sale, and is the lowest price to date on the Edge 530. This is one of the main units I use for my day-to-day riding and testing.|
|Garmin Edge 830 Cycling GPS – $ 50 off

|Garmin Varia Radar (RTL515) – $ 50 off||$ 149||Amazon||REI||⚡This is Garmin’s standalone radar/taillight option, and $ 149 is pretty much the standard sale-price. This product is universally loved, and works with Garmin/Wahoo/Stages/Hammerhead/Bryton, and other bike computers.|
|Quarq DZero DUB (Road) Power Meter Spider – 40% off||$ 250||Amazon||Competive Cyclist||⚡This is a major deal. SRAM has allowed retailers to put things on sale that were never allowed before, including power meters. This is the road/gravel variant of the MTB one I use (the XX1).|
|Quarq DZero DUB XX1 Power Meter Spider – 40% off||$ 449||Amazon||Competitive Cyclist||⚡This is a major deal. SRAM has allowed retailers to put things on sale that were never allowed before, including power meters. This is the same exact model I use on my mountain bike. Works well.|

|$ 639||Amazon||REI||While not quite as low as some of the crazy clearance deals this past summer, this is still a good deal overall.|
|Saris H3 Bundle – $ 280 off! (In Stock)||REI||While not quite as low as some of the crazy clearance deals this past summer, this is still a good deal overall. Bundle includes pre-installed cassette, sweat guard, and ANT+ USB stick.|

|$ 719||Amazon||Competitive Cyclist|
|Tacx Flux S Smart Trainer – $ 150 off!
|Tacx NEO 2T Smart Trainer – $ 280 off!
|$ 1,120||Amazon||Competitive Cylicst||⚡This is Tacx’s top-end trainer, and while sales have been more frequent in 2022, this is still a solid deal for a solid trainer.|
|Tacx NEO Bike Smart V1 – $ 470 off!
|$ 2,719||Amazon||Competitive Cyclist||This is the V1 version, whereas the new Tacx NEO Bike Plus came out this past week with some very minor tweaks, however, that bike is $ 3,999 ($ 1,300 more than this!). Thus, this kinda looks like a steal.|
|Wahoo CLIMB Accessory – $ 140 off!
|$ 560||N/A||REI||This simulates the up and down motion on most KICKR trainers (including KICKR SNAP)., moving your bike up and down. This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
|Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM V1 – $ 100 off
|$ 299||Competitive Cyclist||This is the slightly older ROAM V1, which isn’t quite as fancy as the new V2.|
|Wahoo Headwind Fan – $ 60 off! (In Stock)
|$ 240||Amazon||REI||This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
|Wahoo KICKR 2022/V6 – 20% off!
|$ 1,040||REI||⚡This is the first, and currently best, deal we’ve seen to date on the Wahoo KICKR 2022/V6, which includes built-in WiFi. This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
|Wahoo KICKR AXIS Feet – 40% off||$ 47||REI||This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the Wahoo KICKR AXIS feet, which, if on a hard surface like concrete, will give your KICKR bike slightly more movement side to side. Note these come built-in to the KICKR 2020/2022, but you can install the AXIS feet on all Wahoo KICKR units (not CORE/SNAP).|
|Wahoo KICKR Bike – $ 500 off!
|$ 2,999||Competitive Cyclist||⚡ This is the Wahoo KICKR Bike V1. During the last few weeks we’ve seen it as low as $ 2,250, which is astounding. As of this moment it’s at $ 2,999, which is good, but not fantastic. Assuming it gets back lower ago over Black Frida, I think it’s a very solid deal, especially since the just announced V2 bike is even more expensive now. And frankly, aside from built-in WiFi, there’s not much other changes on the newer V2 bike. If I were buying a KICKR Bike right now, I’d buy this deal, and use the saved money for something else.|
|Wahoo KICKR Core Smart Trainer – $ 200 off!
|$ 699||N/A||Competitive Cyclist||This is the lowest price we’ve actually ever seen on the KICKR CORE. While the new Zwift Hub came out that’s relatively similar and cheaper, the KICKR CORE is a better option if you want to combine it with the Wahoo CLIMB, or, if you need multichannel Bluetooth.|
|Wahoo KICKR MAT – 20% off||$ 64||Amazon||REI||I mean, I guess, if you really wanted this specific mat, it’s a perfectly functional KICKR-themed mat. This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
|Wahoo KICKR SNAP – 40% off
|$ 299||N/A||Competitive Cyclist||This is lowest we’ve ever seen the KICKR SNAP priced. While the trend has moved towards wheel-off/direct drive trainers, this is still really solid deal if your budget it tight.|
|Wahoo POWRLINK ZERO (Dual-sided) – $ 200 off!
$ 649/$ 999
|$ 800||N/A||REI||⚡This is only the second time we’ve seen the POWRLINK Zero pedals on sale, and thus far, about 4-5 months since launch – people seem really happy with them (as am I, it’s become part of my testing rotation due to strong accuracy). This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
|Wahoo POWRLINK ZERO (Single-sided) – $ 200 off!||$ 520||N/A||REI||⚡This is only the second time we’ve seen the POWRLINK Zero pedals on sale, and thus far, about 4-5 months since launch – people seem really happy with them. This deal is via REI for REI members using the coupon code GEARUP22 – and ends Nov 21st!|
Action Cameras & Drones:
Wanna record it? No better way than an action camera. Anything that’s action camera-related or drone-related you’ll find here. That’s especially true of action camera mounts, which are often found for great deals around the holidays. Same goes with drone and drone accessories. Usually a great time to pick up an extra battery or extra props.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|DJI Action 2 Dual-Screen Combo Edition – 31% off||$ 359||Amazon|
|DJI FPV Combo – $ 300 off!||$ 996||Amazon||This deal is on DJI’s larger FPV drone, the original one. They’ve also got the smaller but less powerful one too – Avata, which isn’t on sale. This is for the FPV combo deal, saving you $ 300. This includes the drone, FPV goggles, and controller.|
|GoPro Hero 11 Black – $ 100 off
|$ 399||Amazon||⚡ Amazon now has the Hero 11 Black for $ 100 off the retail price of $ 499. This does *NOT* require the GoPro subscription (previously called GoPro Plus). The Hero 11 has become my daily action cam (well, actually, I bought two of them).|
Other Sports & Fitness:
Anything else that’s sports and fitness-related that I think is interesting will be here. It may not be super techy – but it’s stuff that most readers will be using in pursuit of their running/cycling/swimming/hiking/whatever.
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Other site||Sale Notes|
|Garmin inReach 2 Mini Satellite Communicator (2-way) – $ 50 off||$ 349||Amazon||REI||This is the first time we’ve seen this unit on sale, as it only came out earlier this year. It’s my defacto satellite communicator when out of coverage area, and I’ve used it on a number of major treks this year out of cell range already.|
What’s that? You’re not in the US and still want a deal? No problem! Note that on Amazon Europe deals, generally speaking, you can order from any Amazon European country site (i.e., Amazon France) and have it shipped within the EU (i.e., Spain). Thus, many times deals are duplicated across the sites. I generally try and just distill it down to one.
[Note: I usually start tracking these deals from Nov 21st]
DCR Random Gadget List:
This is basically the mostly totally unrelated gadgets and things I think are cool deals that I’ve likely bought one or five of (you can never have too many, right)? Some of it’s probably photography stuff. Some of it’s random stuff like chargers and battery packs that I use daily, fun camera gear I use to make videos like sliders and turntables, and well…just random things you’ll find around the DCR Cave. It’s all random…but it’s all awesome randomness!
|Product||Sale Price||Amazon||Sale Notes|
|2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad (Wi-Fi, 64GB) – $ 70 off!||$ 269||Amazon||I use my iPad primarily for TrainerRoad as well as Zwift when not with a larger display. I also occasionally use it for other apps, namely Wahoo SYSTM, Rouvy, and Peloton. But I pretty much test every smart trainer app on it. For all these cycling apps, the graphics capabilities is really pretty irrelevant, so having the absolute top-end/latest model won’t make any difference. I prefer the budget options.|
I’ll continue to add deals as I find them.
With that – thanks for reading, and for supporting the site via the links above. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Have a great weekend!
