Our Top 10 picks: USA
1. Castelli men's Gavia jacket:
was $499.99, now $200.00 at Competitive Cyclist
With 60% off retail, this deal takes the versatile Gavia jacket from a wish list item to a must buy it now! A mid-weight shell with Gore-Tex protection, it's designed to fend of the wet and the wild. The long tail adds protection at the rear, while the storm zipper flap does the same at the front. We also like that the Gavia is cut a little roomier than a typical race-fit rain cape, meaning you can layer up if needed, making it work across a wider range of temps.
2. Garmin Enduro:
was $799.99, now $479.80 at Amazon
Not quite at its lowest price ever but this 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.
3. Adidas The Velosamba Vegan Cycling Shoes:
was $130.00, now from $65.00 at Adidas
These were a most wanted pair of casual cycling kicks for a long time, so now to find them with an over half price saving is a seriously good deal. Specific colors and sizes are likely to move fast, so it makes sense to act when you find the color you like in your size. The insanely low price of $39 is for the white and blue color option in large sizes, but there are solid reductions on all colors, with the blue shoes pictured here now just $65.
4. 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.
5. Specialized Torch 3.0 men's road shoes:
were $230, now $115.00 at Jenson USA
You can actually get the Torch 3.0 from Specialized for cent less, but currently there better size availability at Jenson across the three colors. It's a great shoes, with two Boa dials to help with fit and foot security alongside a breathable upper and a stiff carbon sole. Now with 50% off retail.
8. Specialized Propero III helmet:
was $130, now $64.99. at Specialized
I'm a big fan of the Propero lid - it's got a nice profile and plenty of vents and feels a little like a premium S-Works product but without the price tag - which is even lower here. Offered in three colors including white and black. Classic.
9. Shimano XC502 limited Edition shoes:
were $175, now $105 at Competitive Cyclist
Designed for XC mountain biking, the XC502 low profile upper and aggressive sole also make it well-suited for gravel racing and riding. Limited Moss Green colorway only adds to the shoe's appeal - and here in a good range of sizes with 40% off retail.
10. Blackburn Outpost Bike and Camp Light:
was $64.95, now $29.23 at Competitive Cyclist
It's only right that I include one stocking filler in the top 10 deals - and what better than a bike light, head lamp, and camp lantern all rolled into one - the ideal gift for the bikepacker in your life.

Garmin Fenix 7S Solar:
was $699.99, now $499.99 at Amazon

It's got full functionality with TOPO maps, Garmin Pay, health metric tracking and, of course, solar recharging - and much, much more.

Garmin Forerunner 245 Music: was
$349.99, now $225 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. Currently with 36% off retail.
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 Edge 1030 Plus:
now $599.99, now $339.28 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.
Garmin Edge 830:
was $399.99, now $279.99 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 30% off retail.
