About this deal

Having cycled on both, we were blown away by the Bike Plus' experience, but if you're not bothered by the rotating screen, the base-level Peloton Bike is still an excellent choice. If you're just starting out and you're not used to much exercise, whatever you can manage is good going. For some people, the idea of going to the gym is either mentally off-putting, can’t fit in with their schedule or is financially out of reach. If you're into spin and you want to get some more time in the saddle away from the gym, this could be the bike for you. You get five feedback metrics for your money, including distance travelled, calories burnt and time spent pedalling.

We recommend setting up your profile with your weight, height, and age using a compatible fitness app so that your exercise bike can more accurately track your metrics and progress. The ultra plush seat makes long miles far more enjoyable, and you get all the usual additions like a water bottle holder, caged pedals and adjustable resistance.In terms of its use, it can take a maximum user weight of 100kg very comfortably and even when using at a high intensity this model is particularly stable. It has a semi-recumbent design which affords even greater stability to the lower back as well as handles to the front and the sides – so anyone who is concerned about staying secure will be very happy with this model.

With exercise bikes still in short supply we were pleased to find a good entry level option that appears to be keeping up with demand as well as showing plenty of quality in our testing. You get more lumbar support by reclining on a cushioned back and there’s less pressure on the joins in your hips, knees and ankles. You'll also work your upper body – to stay in the correct position, you'll work your triceps, biceps, shoulders, back and chest. Speaking of which, the display is basic but effective and displays all the usual data you would expect as well as your heart rate which can be measured via the pulse rate sensors on the handles. The handle bars were not the most comfortable of the bikes we tested but they do the job and have in-built pulse rate monitors with heart rate being conveniently displayed on the LCD screen found on the large centre console.There are 8 levels of magnetic resistance that are manually controlled via a dial just beneath the centre console. It also features small wheels in the feet so you can easily move it from place to place and is perfect for the home or office.

It weighs a pretty lightweight 20kg and moving the bike from place to place in your home is fairly straightforward with wheels in the sides of the base designed to make this even easier on hard floors (which are recommended for this bike). We rated the Yosuda exercise bike as one of the best exercise bikes on the market during testing, and now it's on sale during Prime Day.

The navigation has Netflix-like menus for classes based on workout format, recommendations and classes you’ve favorited. Look for a bike with a range of resistance levels, and adjust the resistance to match your fitness goals. It doesn’t offer the frills you’d find on a Peloton, but it makes up for it in solid construction, design essentials and with a little bit of ingenuity, it can deliver a similar cycling experience to the elite brands.

That said, you won’t need to limit your workouts to the daylight hours thanks to the backlit display showing calories, distance and speed.There are the usual height adjustments for the seat position so it is suitable for most adult heights up to around 6’2″. The large seat is fairly comfortable and the height can be adjusted from 26 inches high to 32 inches high which means it is going to be suitable for most people between 5’3″ and 6’1″. Yes, a folding exercise bike can provide a good workout, depending on the bike’s features and your fitness level. Whilst they still provide a great cardio workout, folding exercise bikes generally don’t offer the same levels of resistance as a traditional exercise bike. If you’re looking for a folding exercise bike that offers a bit more oomph, the 6kg flywheel on the Domyos EB Fold, allows a more adjustable intensity level, with 15 auto-motorised resistance levels that you can vary depending on your mood (and motivation levels).
