EFITMENT Indoor exercise bike caught my attention in one of the local gyms, which is a bit weird, considering the bike should not be commercially used. I guess the owner simply did not care. More to the point, EFITMENT indoor cycle bike is another magnetic, belt-driven exercise bike and in this review, we will take a closer look at its features, pros and cons.
EFITMENT brand (Zoovaa) has been on the market for some time now and manufactures all kinds of fitness gear, including trampolines, exercise bikes, rowing machines and more. But right now, we are mainly interested in their indoor exercise bike.
Features of EFITMENT Indoor Exercise Bike
As mentioned above, the bike uses magnetic resistance and is belt-driven. Thanks to this combination it makes very little noise. The 40-lbs flywheel comes with unlimited resistance mechanism accommodates every user, no matter the condition or experience. The maximum weight support is 275 lbs. The pedal Q-factor is 175 mm.
The large padded seat is fully adjustable both vertically and horizontally. The handlebars are vertically-adjustable and include hand-pulse feature, so you can monitor your heart rate on the LCD display.
The digital monitor offers all variety of stats, like time, distance, speed, scan, calories burned and heart rate.
The assembled dimensions are 41L x 21.26W x 47H (104.1 x 54 x 119.4 cm) and the weight is 104 pounds (47.17 kg).
The bike comes with assembly instructions, which are pretty simple. Unfortunately, not much else I can tell you about it, since the bike was already assembled when I tested it.
From what I pulled from online reviewers is that the assembly is pretty straightforward and is quite easy. Most of the buyers assembled the bike on their own within 40 minutes or so.
My Experience – Is That GameBoy or Digital Monitor?
The bike is quite sturdy and does not wobble on even, linoleum floor. I’m 5’10” and currently weigh 160 lbs, so I guess it would be weird if the bike wobbled under my weight. It also comes with small wheels built at the base for easy transportation.
The original seat is quite big (wide), which is good for heavier people and can also be comfortable for some smaller users. However, I was quite surprised that I had to adjust the seat to nearly max height. That is a bit strange, considering I’m of average height.
The EFITMENT Indoor exercise bike is super quiet, so you’ll have no problem pedaling while watching TV or talking to someone. The magnetic resistance does the job well and is easy to adjust. Not much to add here.
The handlebars are comfortable and vertically adjustable and they also come with a hand-pulse sensor, which is plus.
The pedals come with cages, which can be dismounted. This is totally up to your preferences. If you like safer, tighter and secured feet, you can use them. If you want to be able to easily slip your feet from the pedal, you can remove them. Otherwise, the pedals are of a standard quality. Nothing fancy, but they hold.
The LCD display is where I had to pause a little. It looks kind of cheap and it’s also small. Kind of reminds me the GameBoy console. While it displays all the important stats like distance, time, speed, scan, calories burned and heart rate, the manufacturer should put a little more effort in the design.
Well, I guess that’s all she wrote.
Pros and Cons
My rating: 4.3 / 5
If you do not mind the mentioned cons and you are not a very tall guy/gal, you should definitely consider purchasing EFITMENT indoor exercise bike. It is one good looking, smooth and silent bike which is, according to my humble opinion, worth the price.
