Road bikes, cycling shorts and even wetsuits are just some of the sports items set to be massively reduced in the Wiggle Black Friday 2020 sale, as we’ve got wind of the phenomenal deals that could be on offer.
It’s just in time too, as the Black Friday 2020 UK sales and particularly the Wiggle Black Friday sale will come as many of us are are now looking to replenish our cycling or running kit, as the weather is start to get colder. While others will certainly be looking to level-up their home gym equipment, following the boom in home workouts over the last few months.
As is the tradition of Black Friday, there are plenty of smashing deals on electronics and appliances with the best Argos Black Friday deals we’ve seen in years. Interestingly, Tesco Black Friday 2020 is also set to deliver some winners in this area, as well as offering quality bargains on groceries and alcohol. The kids will also be ready to go for Christmas, as Black Friday Disney deals are beginning to filter through early and Amazon has already let some customers know about their terrific deals on toys and games. But what about sports and exercise equipment?
Splashing out on a new mountain bike or running machine isn’t something we do every day and now the demand is through the roof for sports clothing and equipment, it’s more expensive than ever outside of the big shopping weekends. So it’s certainly worth taking your time when you look at the offers and weighing up Black Friday vs Cyber Monday, for instance, before you decide to part with the money.

Medicine balls and power bands have previously been knocked down in the Black Friday sale, along with classic weight sets like the BeElite Vinyl Coated Dumbbell Pair – which go from 0.5kg to 3kg.

In 2019, the Tacx Deo 2 Direct Drive smart trainer was reduced from £1,199.99 to an impressive £899.99. For those on a smaller budget, the LifeLine TT-01 turbo sorted things out as it was taken down to half price from £99.99 to £49.99.

Turbo trainers with their newly integrated technology features allow cyclists to turn solitary cycling into a social experience, and it was a real lifeline for many during the lockdown as exercise was limited. Zwift, TrainerRoad and Sufferfest are just three of the programmes that give riders that community experience while allowing people to get the exercise they need.
To help things along, we’re also predicting that turbo trainer accessories like the trainer table, mat and sensor kit will have discounts heading their way. Along with indoor cycle clothing like Gore bibs and DHB shorts.
