It’s this time of the year again. If you are in the market for a new smart trainer, get your credit card ready. In this post, I will walk you through what to expect during 2022 Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
November is your best chance to get a good deal on new trainers – at least in the United States. Don’t wait until later this year, thinking you might get a better deal around Christmas or the New Year. I expect to see bike trainer and cycling deals starting this weekend into Black Friday/Cyber Monday week. On Black Friday you will find some great Black Friday deals on particularly the Wahoo KICKR. After that, the deals on smart bike trainers will most likely be gone.
HERE IS YOUR COMPLETE LIST OF BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY DEALS ON BIKE TRAINERS.

REI MEMBERS EVENT
WHEN: November 11, 2022, to November 21, 2022.
HOW MUCH: 20% OFF one full-priced item.
MEMBERSHIP: Requires an REI Membership.
REI requires you to be an REI member to take advantage of this sale which will cost you $30 for a lifetime membership. You get an average of 10% back on all purchases at the end of the year. So this membership pays for itself if you spend over $300.
REI is a major retailer that runs a 20% member sale right before Black Friday. Generally, their members’ event starts two weeks before the Thanksgiving Holiday. You can apply the 20% off to one full-priced item. You have to be an REI member to take advantage of this sale which will cost you $30 for a lifetime membership. You get an average of 10% back on all purchases at the end of the year. So this membership pays for itself if you spend over $300.
In years past, this sale included smart trainers, including trainers from Tacx and Wahoo.
REI charges for shipping unless you opt to ship to a store near you. They have a 90-day return policy on bike trainers and any GPS-enabled devices like a Garmin watch for example.
Wahoo runs some kind of sale on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Also, expect to see some discounts on their bike computers and other items from their online store.
For CyberMonday, Wahoo usually does another sale. My expectation this year is, we will see between
Wahoo doesn’t usually charge for shipping within the continental United States.
WHEN: November 25, 2021 and November 28, 2021.
HOW MUCH: Varies, but expect somewhere between 10% to 20% OFF.
Amazon is a hit or miss when it comes to smart trainers. I haven’t seen an official start date for their Black Friday, but expect to see Amazon Black Friday deals on a regular basis on this page. Amazon is a good place to find really incredible deals on AirPods, Garmin Fitness Watches, Apple Watches and other fitness items. As far as smart bike trainers, they don’t carry any Wahoo brand bike trainers. However, we might find deals on other brands from Elite, Garmin, Saris, and others.
Getting a previous model is one way to save a lot of money. For example, the SARIS H3 is an amazing trainer, and you can get one for around $500. That’s half off the original price and a steal IMO. If you can find one, don’t think twice and just grab it.
The KICKR Bike V1 is also on sale, and you can grab one for cheap instead of spending close to $4000 on KICKR Bike V2. Getting a refurbished KICKR or KICKR CORE will save you a few hundred of dollars. Wahoo certifies each one of these trainers and makes sure they are in working order. Cosmetically, there might be some scratches or nicks if you don’t mind that. You also get the same 1-full year warranty on a refurbished as you get on a new trainer.
If you purchase from merchants on this page via links posted on SmartBikeTrainers.com or its social media network, we might get a little commission while saving you some money and we greatly appreciate it!
Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
