You may be wondering why, on a cycling site, would we be showing you an Apple iPad Air… with 10.5-inch screen, Wi-Fi connectivity and 64GB of storage space?
Well, Amazon Prime Day cycling deals don’t have to be the obvious stuff – and if you’re looking for a screen to enter the Zwift virtual world, this could be the one.
View now: Apple iPad Air (10.5-inch, Wi-Fi, 64GB) – Silver at Amazon – was £479 now £413
An Apple iPad has a lot more cycling uses than you might first think. Platforms such as Zwift are available on the App Store and work on an iPad. This could be an easy to use, lightweight change to moving around the laptop or computer when you want to cycle and watch the cycling on TV.
Speaking of TV, you could also download Eurosport Player or GCN Race Pass to watch all the races you want wherever you want, as long as WiFi is available.
Say the price has been slashed by £66 and surely you’re interested?
You will need the large memory of this particular iPad as the Zwift app is a hefty 1.5GB, which doesn’t sound like a lot compared to the memory, but it adds up when you download the rest.
Bluetooth turbo trainers and sensors are essential as the iOS app does not support ANT+, even with an adaptor. This isn’t always the case, but if you have an older trainer then it may be worth checking beforehand.
If you are also keen on getting Eurosport Player or the GCN Race Pass then you’ll be wanting subscription prices.
Eurosport Player is £19.99 for a 12 months subscription, this price can change depending on the deals at the time. This doesn’t just include cycling, but several other sports.
GCN Race Pass is £6.99 for a month or, if you want an ‘annual pass’ that will be £39.99, this has uninterrupted coverage, much like Eurosport Player, but also has in-depth details on races as well.
