  • Matrix exercise bike U50 xir

    TKO 22.9.2020 - Matrix exercise bike U50 xir

    --ENGLISH ONLY-- This is my 3rd machine in 2 years, I tried 2 eliptical machines and both of them ended up having issues with barings, I am over 100 kilo, so maybe not the easiest on the machines. Anyways, after consultation with the Fitshop guys at Brussels store, I traded in my eliptical machine and splurged on this model. It was the best decision, after almost 12 months of usage (almost everyday, for 60 minutes), no issues whatsoever!!! Machine held up very nicely, and all the features made it easy to pass the time. Yes, it is a very expensive machine, and most people probably should go for the less expensive model without the big LCD screen, but if you can afford this, it is well worth every penny you spend. Very much recommended. And guys at Fitshop Brussels store are super helpful, very nice and professional, I can recommend this store to anyone!!! (already had one referral, he's also very happy with the service they provide)

    Laszlo 10.6.2020 - cardiostrong Recumbent Exercise Bike BC70

    We had the previous version of this product, and we decided to buy another one. This should indicate a positive opinion...:-)

  • cardiostrong Recumbent Exercise Bike BC70

    Laszlo 29.5.2020 - cardiostrong Recumbent Exercise Bike BC70

    We heve the BC70 since ages (the old version with LED display) and we are very satisfied. Thanks to the every direction good adjustable seat position, both of us (my wife 160cm, me 176cm height) comfortable sit on it. I have tried several others, but very soon it began to hurt my butt, but not this one, it is different. The seat surface is big, properly padded and support our ass very well. I just ordered one more for my mother-in-law...;-) Strongly recommended!

  • Life Fitness exercise bike C1 Go

    Emilia 20.5.2020 - Life Fitness exercise bike C1 Go

    Perfect for home use. This is my second Life Fitness product, the treadmill is also excellent. Just one suggestion: a video manual would be more efficient than the written manual. The attached CD could contain the video manual how to assemble the product. The written manual is not very helpful, not so clear, could use more pictures...

  • cardiostrong exercise bike BX70i

    Allan 12.4.2020 - cardiostrong exercise bike BX70i

    Brilliant bike! I bought it the day before the lockdown started in the UK and it's helping me keep fit and stay sane during the Covid-19 crisis. Very smooth action, and very quiet. The bike feels as solid as the professional machines in the gym. I'm particularly enjoying using it with the Kinomap app, which means that I can cycle real rides all over the world! It would be helpful if it were compatible with some of the other mainstream cycling apps, like Zwift, Rouvy and BKool, but so long as Kinomap continues to work well, I'm happy!

  • cardiostrong exercise bike BX60

    Ian Morris 14.12.2019 - cardiostrong exercise bike BX60

    The bike is sturdy and well constructed. It gives a smooth and comfortable ride which makes exercising easy. However, the touch pads for measuring heart rate give a very inaccurate reading which fluctuates widely. I have tried to obtain a chest strap to measure heart rate but after two attempts from the firm I still am unable to obtain a reading on the console.

    Good but better bikes for the money. Doesn’t have ANT so can’t connect to standard devices like HR monitors or Zwift

Purchase advice for exercise bikes: the most important facts about the popular fitness equipment

Exercise bikes are fitness equipment from training at home
Train at home with the exercise bike
Exercise bikes or bike trainers have been the most popular and most frequent fitness machines for a long time. It's due to their very simple principle: they work like bikes and that's what everyone knows. Despite the simple principle, there are many little differences between the different models. That's why it is all the more important to find and buy the correct or - more precisely - the appropriate training machine. It's very often that ppor exercise bikes of the discounter or the store end as dust catcher or coat stand. Offering our purchase advice for exercise bike, we would like to call your attention to the important differences and help you in deciding what to purchase.

Why should I buy an exercise bike?

At first, we would like to explain you the advantages of an exercise bike in short, so you can be sure that the exercise bike is the ideal fitness machine for you and not just another category of equipment, as for instance treadmill or crosstrainer.
Exercise bikes offer some advantages for all users, being absolutely independent from age, fitness level or training goal. One of the biggest advantages of a bike trainer is the accessibility: There's no need of exercise to work out with an exercise bike. Those, who can sit down and pedal, can do an effective cardiovascular training, lose weight or train for the next triathlon.
Cardio training with an exercise bike is possible at any time. Just doing a few sessions a week will result in good successes for health or in losing weight - and for the general fitness. The training in the sitting position is very comfortable and mainly more joint-gentle than running. Hence, many healthy training programmes are developed according to the bike trainer.

Exercise bike with Watt control

The major difference between exercise bikes is the ability to control the resistance. The resistance can be manually controlled in levels or by the Watt value entered into the training computer.
Exercise bikes with Watt control have the advantage that a much preciser resistance can be set: you can decide to the Watt value and train to the intensity you want to. This lets you exactly measure your performance. Additionally Watt controlled training doesn't overload you. That's why Watt controlled exerise bikes, for example, are used often with rehabilitation measures.
Exercise bikes without Watt control loose the possibility for exact control over your training. Setting the resistance is available in levels over the keys or knob. They normally also have less setting possibilities and training programs as exercise bikes with Watt control.

Purchase advice for an exercise bike: Recumbent bike or exercise bike

At first, it is important to differentiate between two designs of exercise bikes: Recumbent bike and the upright exercise bike. The upright exercise bike is actually like a stationary bike. Saddle, pedals, handles - everything you expect from a real bike is included in an exercise bike.
Recumbent bikes are exercise bikes with a back-rest

back-gentle exercise bikes
Recumbent bikes differ from the common bike design. The pedals are not below the seat, but they are mounted in the front of the machine. The saddle is situated below the pedals and are a bit lower. Hence, the training position on the recumbent bike is almost lying, just the upper body is upright. Recumbent bikes offer an even more comfortable training and the back is additionally supported and relieved. Even though the position on the recumbent bike looks more comfortable, the training is as effective and intensive as with a common upright exercise bike. Find the recumbent bikes at our online shop under its own category.

Seat adjustment

Your new exercise bike should be equipped with a height-adjustable seat. The more precise the adjustment, the better! Pleasy pay attention that the height adjustment has a scale so that every user can quickly find its best sitting height. The height adjustment should be as simple as possible, i. e., with a control knob or a lever. For a better seat adjustment, the seat should also be adjustable in horizontal direction - that means in the space between saddle and handlebar.


The seat should be big enough so that everyone, who uses the machine, can comfortable sit down on it. The upholstery should be soft and thick so that long training sessions remain comfortable. The most comfort is offered by gel saddles. The saddle of many exercise bikes can also be exchanged. For instance, you can use your bike saddle on the exercise bike or exchange the saddle against another model. That's an interesting feature, when different persons train with the machine or when you want to cycle with a more sporty racing saddle.

Frame and body with step-through

More and more exercise bikes models offer a deep step-through. Between the upright post and seat, the frame is not closed - so you can easily step through. For persons with limited mobility, a deep step-trhough is essential. It is also recommendable for all other users, because getting on and off is much easier.

Training control via pulse

Exercise bikes are great for losing weight. In order to make a weight reduction as successful as possible, the exercise bike should be equipped with the possibility of heart rate monitoring. A heart rate monitoring offers the advantage that you you can set a certain pulse zone. You achieve more effectively some training goals in certain pulse zones. The machine adjusts automatically the resistance so that you always remain in the set pulse zone. For instance, you train at 55 to 65 % of the maximum heart rate in the optimal fat burning zone. The following illustration makes clear which training goals can be best achieved in which pulse zone:
Very easy 50 - 60% Health zone Supporting health
Easy 60 - 70% Fat buring zone Activation of the fat metabolism, improvement of the basic cardio
Moderate 70 - 80% Aerobic training / Fitness zone Improvement of the aerobic fitness, increase in cardio performance
Intensive 80 - 90% Anaerobic training / Anaerobic Zone Improvement of lactage tolerance, training for maximum increase in performance
Maximum 90 - 100% Max training / competition zone Improvement of maximum performance and speed

An example of the Sport-Tiedje exercise bike test rating
It is important that all mobile parts of the exercise bike, especially the drive belt, are completely covered. Hence it is ensured that nothing gets caught or clamped while exercising. In addition, a cover ensures that the sensitive inside of the exercise bike is protected from dust, dirt, and sweat. Moreover, the stability provides a higher safety - we tested it for you. Please find the rating in the Sport-Tiedje test rating. Our Sport-Tiedje test rating offers you an evaluation with respect to equipment, ergonomics, and concentric run as well.

Training programs

Training programs offer diversion and support you in achieving your training goals more effectively. Many programs are not really required. – it is usually a question of personal taste. We recommend at least one programme for controlling the performance via the heart rate, an interval programme as well as a small selection of pre-set profile programmes. Hence, new stimulations can be set in the training again and again and progress is quicker achieved.

The training computer should be easy to use. When the whole family works out with the machine, the computer should be equipped with a user memory. Hence, grandma, father or daughter can immediately use their personal settings.


An ergonomic design prevents signs of fatigue and avoids physiologically false postures. Details like the adjustability of saddle and handlebar, a deep step-through, the pedal space, and the general design of the machine ensure good ergonomics. Please find an overall evaluation of the ergonomics of all our exercise bikes in the Sport-Tiedje test rating. Furthermore, you can test exercise bikes at all our stores in order to find out which design of an exercise bike is best for you.

The handlebars

The more grip possibility an exercise bike offers, the better it is. First, different persons can chose the preferred grip position and secondly, you sit more comfortably, when you can support yourself as you like it. In addition, you can change the hand position during the training. Please make sure that the handles are non-slip. When the handlebar is also adjustable in height or incline, it offers an additional comfort.

The training experience with an exercise bike

The concentric run or the training experience is closely linked to the ergonomics - a comfortable training position. Many small factors ensure a good concentric run, of it the workmanship and the material quality. We cycled with all exercise bikes and evaluated all exercise bikes according to the criterion "concentric run" in our Sport-Tiedje test rating.

Balance mass

We are often asked for balance mass. However, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the weight of the balance mass of an exercise bike is not a decisive feature. The workmanship of the whole resistance system and its quality are much more important. A big balance mass might be a sign for a good exercise bike, but not necessarily.

  • The relatively small equipment is space-efficient and easy to use.
  • The training is easy and motivating.
  • Exercise bikes with Watt control offer a precise resistance level.
  • Exercise bikes are easily "accessible": everyone, who can pedal, can benefit from the training!
