Sportpursuit – Sports Gear and Gadget Deals Site

I was recently asked to blog about a new flash sale website that focuses on sports gear and gadgets.

20120526-104956.jpgI normally avoid this stuff like the plague as I’m not interested in seeing my inbox fill with fabulous offers that I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole.

This one seemed a little different and as I can’t resist sports gadgetry, I took a look and then I ended up signing-up and now I’m at serious risk of bankrupting myself.

If you’re not familiar with flash sales, it’s all the rage at the moment and featured on The Apprentice last week. It’s based around the concept of time limited offers with significant discounts. Sites such as Groupon put forward fairly generic offers and bombard you with treats such as laser hair removal, teeth whitening and golf trips on the Costa Brava but Sportpursuit has a focus – individual sports. This of course means that almost every offer is going to feel highly relevant and therefore a huge risk to my wallet.

At the moment they have offers from the likes of Vibram fivefingers, Vivobarefoot, Zoot, Cebe and a snowboarding brand that I’ve never heard of.

Vibram fivefinger dealsI’m particularly interested in the barefoot running deals. The Vibram fivefingers look fab – I know I already have a pair and I’m not really doing a lot of barefoot running at the moment but the Women’s Bikilas look great and they are being offered at £66, down from £115, that is quite an offer and it’s not a brand that you often find deals on.

If you want to expose yourself to some great run, bike, swim deals, I recommend that you take a look at Sportpursuit. If you want to keep hold of your money – ignore this post!
