JOROTO X2 Indoor Stationary Cycling Bike Reviewed

Finding the right indoor exercise bike can be a challenge, especially with so many options out there. Considering all the mid-range budget bikes on the market today, the Joroto X2 indoor bike is one of the better options available. 

Joroto Fitness specializes in making home gym equipment that's high in quality, but won't necessarily break the bank. They make a lot of machines, ranging from spin bikes to rowing machines to mini ellipticals to workout benches and more.

For now, I'll be focusing on reviewing the X2 spin bike. It has been on the market for some time now, and so far, it has pretty positive reviews.

Frame & Construction

As with most exercise spin bikes, the X2 uses the AV frame type, which is made of 50mm thickened steel tube. It can support up to 300 pounds, which is a step up from the previous 280-pound capacity of this model. The base is supported by 4 horizontal adjustment knobs to make the bike perfectly stable, even on uneven floors.

The assembled dimensions are 42.9"L x 19.7"W x 42.5"H (109 x 50 x 108 cm) and the empty weight is 94 pounds (42.6 kg).

Ride Quality

The combination of the magnetic resistance system and belt drive mechanism makes the bike almost whisper-quiet. The ride is super smooth, and I personally feel that this is all thanks to the 35-pound bidirectional flywheel.

Considering the fair price, I was surprised (but very pleased!) with the bike's smoothness and quiet operation. This makes it a great choice for anyone living in an apartment or condo with neighbors nearby.

Adjustability & Comfort

The X2 is fully adjustable with an oversized seat that can be adjusted 4 ways (forward, backward, up, and down) and handlebars that can be adjusted vertically and horizontally. This means that most people, regardless of their height, can ride this bike comfortably. 

The toe-caged pedals are made of steel and are equipped with adjustable straps - another great feature to accommodate users of all heights and sizes. 

Other Bike Features

There is a simple LCD monitor that reads out stats like distance, speed, time, scan, and calories burned. It's very basic, but it gets the job done.

Other features worth mentioning are the emergency brake, transportation wheels for easy portability, and multi-use media tray that can hold a tablet, water bottler, or cell phone.

My Overall Impressions of the Joroto X2

I’m pleased to say that the assembly of Joroto X2 indoor bike is so easy that purchasing the extra assembly service is, in my opinion, a waste of money.

The instruction manual is easy to understand, and with the provided tools and pre-assembled bike frame, you can be done with the assembly in less than 15 minutes. If you're not a technical person, it might take closer to 30 minutes, but that's still not long in the grand scheme of things.

Although I didn't personally need to get in touch with the manufacturer, several verified users mentioned that the Joroto customer service is super helpful and friendly.

The combination of the quality steel, frame design, and horizontal balancing knobs makes the bike very sturdy and stable. I have no problem believing it can support 300 pounds. With that being said, the 300-pound weight limit isn't all that impressive, especially considering bikes in the same price range - like the Cyclace or Pooboo - can support 330 pounds.

The LCD display is functional and does the job, although that’s the only positive I can say about it. It’s quite small and displays only one data statistic at a time, so you have to keep switching from one to another (rather than having a read-out of all the stats at one time). To be fair, though, this is the case with most affordable home gym spin bikes.

The thing I love most about the bike is its unlimited magnetic resistance system. This is convenient when I want to challenge myself with high-intensity rides. The magnetic resistance paired with the bike's belt drive makes this one of the smoothest (and quietest) bikes in this price range. 

The multi-purpose holder is exactly that: multi-purpose. It’s big enough to hold even a 15.6” laptop but works just as well for a cell phone or tablet. Even though the bike doesn't have a designated water bottle holder, the media tray is shaped in a way that can support a water bottle (even two).

Our Rating: 4.6 Star Rating 4.6 / 5

Honestly, as long as you weigh less than 280-290 pounds (it’s always good to have some reserve) and you do not mind a simple display, the Joroto X2 spin bike is definitely worth the price. Looking for a bike that can hold more weight? Consider the Cyclace or Pooboo instead.
