Despite being a few days away, still, the Black Friday feeding frenzy is underway and retailers around the web are offering countless deals on every kind of bike, cycling clothing, tech and accessory.

The tech team here at Cyclingnews has been busy gathering the Black Friday bike deals from everywhere into one place, and there are numerous lists of savings, including those from Wiggle, deals on GoPros and the one that always bemused me; Black Friday turbo trainers, despite indoor cycling season also being in its peak. 

Wahoo Kickr V5: $1199.99$799.99 - Save £400

Wahoo Kickr V5: <a href="https://www.wahoofitness.com/devices/indoor-cycling/bike-trainers/kickr-buy-v5?rfsn=4045189.07f5e1&utm_source=refersion&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=4045189.07f5e1&subid=hawk-custom-tracking" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"">$1199.99 $799.99 - Save £400 

The Kickr v5 has recently been superseded by the <a href="https://www.cyclingnews.com/reviews/wahoo-kickr-2022-turbo-trainer/" data-link-merchant="cyclingnews.com"" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"">Kickr v6, but as I explained in my review of that, I'd still buy the old one due to recent discounts. Those discounts have just gotten even better thanks to the Black Friday sales. 

The Kickr Core (<a href="https://www.wahoofitness.com/devices/indoor-cycling/bike-trainers/kickr-core-buy?rfsn=4045189.07f5e1&utm_source=refersion&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=4045189.07f5e1&subid=hawk-custom-tracking" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"" data-link-merchant="cyclingnews.com"" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"">$699.99 at Wahoo) is cheaper, but this deal provides a fairly significant spec upgrade for just $100 more, which I'd say is worth it if you can afford it. 

If you're not set on buying a Wahoo product and want a good trainer for little money, there are a few other options to consider, such as the Saris H3  which is <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=78475&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2Fdp%2FB07WP6JTN4%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"" data-link-merchant="cyclingnews.com"" data-link-merchant="wahoofitness.com"">$629.99 at Amazon.

Was $249.99 | Now $133.49
The Perfetto ROS needs little introduction; it's a long-sleeve race-cut winter jersey with incredible weatherproofing. Fall/winter is when it shines, so to find one discounted by this much at this time of year is a surprise. 

Castelli Free Aero RC Bibshort | up to 45% off at Jenson USA

<a href="https://classic.avantlink.com/click.php?tt=cl&mi=11473&pw=27131&ctc=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jensonusa.com%2FCastelli-Free-Aero-RC-Bibshort" data-link-merchant="jensonusa.com"">Castelli Free Aero RC Bibshort | up to 45% off at Jenson USA

<a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=1857&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wiggle.com%2Fdhb-aeron-rain-defence-polartec-jacket-1" data-link-merchant="wiggle.com"">dhb Aeron Rain Defence Polartec Jacket | up to 60% off at Wiggle

Specialized Allez E5 Sport Road Bike 2022 | up to 37% off at Sigma Sports

<a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=25809&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sigmasports.com%2Fitem%2FSpecialized%2FAllez-E5-Sport-Road-Bike-2022%2FW000" data-link-merchant="sigmasports.com"">Specialized Allez E5 Sport Road Bike 2022 | up to 37% off at Sigma Sports
Was £1,250.00 | Now £789.00
To some, this is the original entry-level road bike, and this is the first time we've seen an Allez reduced (and available in stock) since the start of the pandemic-induced supply-chain issues shortages. We doubt it'll hang around long at this price, but for the time being it's available in two colours in a good few sizes. 

Wahoo Kickr V5: £999.99£649.99 - Save £350

Wahoo Kickr V5: <a href="https://www.wiggle.co.uk/wahoo-kickr-smart-turbo-trainer-5" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"">£999.99 £649.99 - Save £350

Like in the USA, the Kickr Core is cheaper (at <a href="https://www.wiggle.co.uk/wahoo-kickr-core-smart-turbo-trainer" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"">£599.99 at Wiggle), but for the £50 difference, I believe the spec difference is worth it, if you can afford it. 

If you're worried about the price getting cheaper, then don't. In years gone by, Sigma Sports have thrown in freebies to improve the offer over and above the competitors, but don't expect any more money off. 

Alternatively, there are a few other options to consider. The <a href="https://www.wiggle.co.uk/tacx-neo-2-special-edition-smart-trainer" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"">Tacx NEO 2 is £599.99, while the <a href="https://www.wiggle.co.uk/saris-h3-direct-drive-smart-trainer" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"">Saris H3 is £499.99 at Wiggle.

Garmin Edge 1030 Plus | 42% off at Wiggle

<a href="https://www.wiggle.co.uk/garmin-edge-1030-plus-gps-bike-computer" data-link-merchant="wiggle.co.uk"">Garmin Edge 1030 Plus | 42% off at Wiggle
Was £519.99 | Now £299.99
Until recently, the 1030 Plus was the best in Garmin's range. It's since been replaced by the Edge 1040, but it's still one of the best on the market. It has a large, super-clear 3.5in screen and more ride-tracking and route-mapping features than most of us will ever use, as well as the ability to charge via an optional battery pack that mounts underneath. 

Shimano RC902 S-Phyre Road Cycling Shoes | up to 44% off at Sigma Sports

<a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=25809&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sigmasports.com%2Fitem%2FShimano%2FRC902-S-Phyre-Road-Cycling-Shoes%2FQJ1W%3Fs%3Dt" data-link-merchant="sigmasports.com"">Shimano RC902 S-Phyre Road Cycling Shoes | up to 44% off at Sigma Sports
Was £320.00 | Now £179.00
The RC902 has now been replaced by, you guessed it, the RC903. That means big discounts are becoming available on this former flagship shoe. We've seen it with 33% off recently, but this is even better.  

Castelli Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve Jersey | up to 57% off at Sigma Sports

<a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=25809&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sigmasports.com%2Fitem%2FCastelli%2FPerfetto-RoS-Long-Sleeve-Jersey%2FNE4X" data-link-merchant="sigmasports.com"">Castelli Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve Jersey | up to 57% off at Sigma Sports
Was £220.00 | Now from £95.00
If riding hard through winter is your preference, then the Perfetto RoS jacket is a great choice. It's a little tighter cut than the Alpha RoS jackets, so if you prefer a slightly looser fit, we'd suggest sizing up. It's available in four colours with at least 56% off.

Was AU$155.00 | Now AU$72.00
The dhb Aeron helmet is an aero lid with a keen eye on keeping the costs down. It was already fairly good value for money at AU$155, but now it's less than half that, in four colours across two sizes.
