Finding the right exercise indoor bike can be a challenge, especially with so many options out there. Joroto X2 indoor bike is one of the better options. Maybe you already found your winner in regard to functions, only to find out that the design is awful. Who knows, maybe the X2 version will be your final choice.
Joroto is one of the manufacturers that specialize in making home gym equipment. They make a lot of machines, ranging from spin bikes to rowing machines to mini ellipticals to workout benches.
I will be reviewing the X2 spin bike, which has been on the market for some time now and so far, it has pretty positive reviews.
Features of Joroto X2 Indoor Bike
As with most exercise spin bikes, X2 uses AV frame type, which is made of 50mm thickened steel tube and supports 280 lbs (127 kg) of weight. The base is supported by 4 horizontal adjustment knobs to make the bike perfectly stable even on uneven floors.
The combination of the magnetic resistance system and belt drive mechanism makes the bike very quiet and offers a smooth ride. X2 is equipped with a 35-lbs bidirectional flywheel.
There is a simple LCD monitor, which provides basic stats like distance, speed, time, scan and calories burned.
Joroto X2 indoor bike is fully adjustable, the seat is oversized and 4-way adjustable (forward, backward, up and down) and the handlebars can be adjusted vertically and horizontally. Such combination supports all kinds of user heights. The inseam capacity ranges from 27.5” to 36.2”.
The pedals are made of steel and are equipped with adjustable straps, which accommodate wide range of feet size.
Other features worth mentioning are emergency brake, transportation wheels for easy portability and multi-use holder, which can hold a tablet, water bottler or a cell phone.
The assembled dimensions are 42.9L * 19.7W * 42.5H inches (109 x 50 x 108 cm) and the empty weight is 94 lbs (42.6 kg).
I’d say that covers the features.
Do Not Purchase Assembly Service
I’m pleased to say that the assembly of Joroto X2 indoor bike is so easy that purchasing the extra assembly service is a waste of money. Joroto provides an instruction manual and with the provided tools and pre-assembled bike, you can be done with the assembly in less than 15 minutes or 30 minutes tops if you are not a technical person. Several verified users also mentioned that the Joroto customer service is super helpful and friendly.
Sturdiness Goes a Long Way
The combination of the quality steel, frame design and horizontal balancing knobs makes the bike very sturdy and stable. I have no problem believing that it supports 280 lbs. With that being said, in my opinion 280 lbs weight support is a bare minimum an indoor spin bike should support. If I want to be honest, there are several other bikes in the same price range with the 330 lbs weight support, like Cyclace or Pooboo.
The provided LCD display is functional and does the job, although that’s everything positive I can say about it. It’s quite small, the numbers are small as well and it displays only one data statistic at a time, so you have to keep switching from one to another. To be fair though, this is the case with most affordable home gym spin bikes.
Joroto X2 indoor bike uses unlimited magnetic resistance system, which is very convenient, as it provides proper challenge for beginners and experienced bikers alike. The well-designed belt-driven mechanism provides very quiet and smooth run. If you want to watch TV or tablet while exercising, then the X2 is a good option for you.
The multi-purpose holder is actually, multi-purpose. It’s big enough to hold even a 15.6” laptop (this of course depends on particular laptop model). I felt the need to mention this as I love when manufacturers do not provide false advertizing.
Well, I guess that’s all she wrote.
Pros and Cons
While Joroto X2 seems like a total winner, it has several cons.
Is Joroto X2 Indoor Bike Worth Your Money?
Our rating: 4.6 / 5
Honestly, as long as you weigh less than 260-270 lbs (it’s always good to have some reserve), and you do not mind very simple display, Joroto X2 spin bike is definitely worth the price and a good choice for you. Make sure you double check the in-seam height to avoid any unnecessary surprises.
