Black Friday deals create cheapest ever Zwift setup

Zwift, along with several other indoor cycling apps, have become a staple of winter cycling for so many of us. The problem is there is always a bit of a financial barrier to entry. Smart trainers aren't always cheap, though we've already rounded up all the best black friday turbo trainer deals in a separate hub if you want to go that route.

Here though, thanks to the pretty bananas Wiggle Black Friday sale I've found what is almost certainly the cheapest Zwift setup ever. It centres around a basic magnetic trainer that's a truly insane £14.99! Yes, you read that right; you can get a turbo trainer for less than a pair of socks. It's not fancy, and there are few bells or indeed whistles to speak of, but combined with a speed and cadence sensor, and an ANT+ dongle, both also reduced, you've got all the hardware you need to get going for as little as £39 (assuming you have a laptop or smartphone already), and under £55 if you need an ANT+ adaptor.

Obviously, there are other things you will need like a laptop/tablet/phone, and the Zwift subscription itself, but given you're reading this I think it's a safe bet that you won't need to buy any new computing hardware at the very least. Getting a turbo tyre is also helpful, but not a requirement; it just stops you from wearing your outdoor tyres quite so fast.

Sadly the discounts aren't quite so massive in the States, but they're still pretty big, with the whole setup costing just over $130.

Will joined the Cyclingnews team as a reviews writer in 2022, having previously written for Cyclist, BikeRadar and Advntr. There are very few types of cycling he's not dabbled in, and he has a particular affection for older bikes and long lasting components. Road riding was his first love, before graduating to racing CX in Yorkshire. He's been touring on a vintage tandem all the way through to fixed gear gravel riding and MTB too. When he's not out riding one of his many bikes he can usually be found in the garage tinkering with another of them, or getting obsessive about tyres. Also, as he doesn't use Zwift, he's our go-to guy for bad weather testing... bless him.
