Breville Duo-Temp Pro Espresso Machine
Save $68: From the fully kitted Oracle Touch to the bare bones Duo-Temp Pro, there’s an espresso maker for everyone in Breville’s line of machines. Today on Jet, the latter is as cheap as you’ll find it.
The Duo-Temp Pro — which retails for $400, not Jet’s listed $699 — comes with Breville’s excellent milk wand, a 54mm tamper, PID temperature control and the option to use pressurized or non-pressurized gaskets. Basically, it pulls consistent, clean shots of espresso and can foam up some milk. It’s also significantly smaller than most of Breville’s espresso offerings. Make sure you have a grinder. — Will Price

Garmin Edge 920 Cycling Computer
Save $90: You don’t need a cycling computer; route planning and riding are done easily without one. But the mini handlebar dashboard has its advantages: not only the basics like speed, time and altitude but also detailed route information, specific feedback to help hit training goals and tracking for everyone else that you’re riding with. Garmin’s Edge 820 provides access to all of these features (and many more) with a touchscreen-equipped construction that’s easy to use and easy to read. Right now it’s on sale for 26 percent off — that’s $90 in savings. — Tanner Bowden
Save Up to 40%: Saint Unbreakable prides itself on finding the happy medium between functional and fashionable motorcycle apparel. While Saint Unbreakable clothing does carry a timeless vintage style, it also incorporates a liberal amount of Dyneema for abrasion resistance. The upside to the brand’s method and style is there’s no extra bulk so Saint’s riding jeans and jackets can be worn pretty much anywhere, off the bike. On the other hand, the single layer construction is just that and only acts as protection against slides, not hard knocks as there is no armor for impacts.
That’s not to say you should pass on what Saint Unbreakable has to offer. If you’re looking for more casual riding gear for around town, chances are Saint Unbreakable has what you’re looking for. It is more of a lifestyle brand so prices will be on the higher side, but luckily, today, you can save up to 40% on a whole bunch of Saint Unbreakable apparel, from jeans and jackets to shirts and hats. — Bryan Campbell
