Black Friday 2017: where to find the best deals on turbo trainers

Time to invest in a turbo trainer? Now is a great time with some brilliant Black Friday bargains

As much as we would all love to keep riding through winter, sometimes we just have to accept that – be it because of the winter weather, lack of daylight hours or simply lack of desire – it is not always possible.

That’s where turbo trainers come in, of course, and with plenty on offer in the Black Friday 2017 sales, now is the chance to invest and get yourself winter-ready.


The increasingly popularity of smart turbo trainers – pushed by the rise of Zwift – means plenty of deals to be had in that regard, while those after something a little simpler are also in luck.

We’ve scoured the web for the best Black Friday deals on turbo trainers, and here are our picks…
