In combination with the training pc, precise resistance adjustments and diversion while exercising are made possible. Transport wheels, bottle holders, pulse measuring are extras increasing training comfort or effectivity and contributing to a good evaluation.
A sturdy frame construction, high weight, and safe stastand provide stability of the ergometer. A stable ergometer has a higher weight load capacity. Frame and handlebar are less loose for higher training intensities, the ergometer is more durable.
Besides the transmission ratio, the balance unit contributes to the concentric run. It consists of balance mass, pedal bearing, ball bearings, etc.. The better the concentric run, the more joint-gentle becomes the workout.
An ergonomic construction of the rgometer prevents signs of tiredness and physiological bad postures. Details like adjustment of saddle and handlebar, a low entry, pedal sapce, and general construction of the machine provide good ergonomics.

  • Schwinn Speedbike IC2

    Mehdin Masinovic 28.3.2020 - Schwinn Speedbike IC2

    The product came properly packaged, it came in time, and it was easy to assemble. All the required tools were provided and the manual was clear. The bike itself is stable (!) and it is appealing to the eye. The workmanship and the quality of the product is very nice. The paddles are out of metal. My partner and I (I am 1.85m) are both using it. It is not too loud. The bike has wheels so its easy to move it. I am generally very satisfied with the purchase. I believe its the best choice for both price and quality.

  • Taurus Indoor Cycle Racing Bike Z9 Pro

    Peter 18.4.2019 - Taurus Indoor Cycle Racing Bike Z9 Pro

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

  • Life Fitness indoor cycle IC5 Powered By ICG

    Anders 29.3.2018 - Life Fitness indoor cycle IC5 Powered By ICG

    As expected from Life Fitness, a great spin bike. Quiet and smooth. The only shame is that one single screw was missing but I hope to be able to get a new one from customer service.

  • Taurus Indoor Cycle Racing Bike Z9 Pro

    Anonym 12.2.2018 - Taurus Indoor Cycle Racing Bike Z9 Pro

    Excellent biking features; heart rate measurement is only remote (add.); Heavy instrument; silent running; multiple hand position. The optional iConsole+ program is not professional.

  • Darwin indoor cycle Speedcycle Evo 30

    Anonym 11.3.2017 - Darwin indoor cycle Speedcycle Evo 30

    Very good quality and easy to assemble. I would have liked to have the option of pedals though, as the Taurus ones that are offered separately are probably more conducive to a home environment.

  • Kettler exercise bike Racer S incl. Kettler World Tour 2.0

    Frank 16.8.2016 - Kettler exercise bike Racer S incl. Kettler World Tour 2.0

    Die Ausführung und Verarbeitung des Geräts ist sehr hochwertig. Passt optisch auch in ein schickeres Wohnzimmer und sieht dabei durchaus gut aus. Die Bedienung ist sehr einfach und selbsterklärend auch die App funktioniert schnell. Die zugehörige Software läuft leider nur auf Windows PC, wurde somit noch nicht erprobt. Im Betrieb ist das Ergometer sehr laufruhig und leise. Es ist absolut keine Geräuschbelästigung auch wenn man direkt daneben sitzt. Ein kleiner Schwachpunkt ist die Einstellung für kleine Personen, mit 169cm Körpergrüße ist die kürzeste Oberrohrlänge bereits etwas gestreckt. Ein weiterer Schwachpunkt ist dass der Flache Bereich des Lenkers (also direkt quer ganz hinten) durch die aufgebauten Aerolenker so behindert wird, dass man mit großen Händen nicht mehr gut darunter greifen kann. (Die anderen Lenkerpositionen - Rennrad und Aero - funktionieren aber sehr gut, sind eben gestreckter. Der Aufbau ist schon eine Herausforderung. Der Karton ist von einer Person alleine nicht transportierbar. Der Aufbau kann von einer Person geleistet werden. Erfordert aber auch den Umgang mit sehr schweren Einzelteilen, elktischer und mechanischer Montage, bis hin zum Kleben des Lenkerbandes. Dauer: 1h. Für technisch nicht versierte und schwächere Personen kann nur geraten werden, das Gerät aufbauen zu lassen.

    Very good for the price. Easy to assemble, quiet. No problems so far.

Racing bike training at home

Indoor cycles were developped by cyclists in the 1970s. They looked for a possibility to do regular training sessions independent of wind, weather, and time.

Indoor cycles offer everyone the possibility - either cyclist, athlete or leisure sportsman - to do a cardio training effectively. You can lose weight, improve your fitness, strengthen your cardiovascular system or increase your performance with an indoor cycle.

Nowadays almost all gyms offer classes with the indoor cycle. In a group and with loud music you get motivated for new maximum performances. Those who like it more quiet, the indoor cycle at home is definitely the better alternative – at home you can choose your own music and tv programme.

We explain to you what you should pay attention to purchasing an indoor cycle.

The balance mass

It's the heart of every indoor cycle: the balance mass. It should be of a rather high weight, because a high balance mass is decisive for a smooth concentric run. The smoothness of a concentric run of an indoor cycle also depends upon the workmanship of the indoor cycle and the type of brake system. We recommend you models from a balance mass of 18 kg.

The brake system

The most common and most well-known type of brake of an indoor cycle is the felt brake. A metal plate covered with felt is pressed against the flywheel and generates the brake effect. By means of a control knob the pressure of the brake is increased and the training resistance gets increased as well.

There are also the magnetic brake systems. Here, a strong magnet brakes the flywheel, the resistance is set by means of a control knob. The advantage of this version is that the magnetic brake system has no direct contact to the flywheel and works thus completely friction-free, silent, and maintenance-free.

The drive

The drive is responsible for power transmission from pedals to flywheel. Like bicycles, some indoor cycles are still driven with the classic (metal) chain. The disadvantage is that it is much louder while exercising. The main part of indoor cycles produced nowadays is designed for home use and the developers have the target to produce machines as silent as possible. Thus the most indoor cycles are driven by drive belts made of synthetics or Kevlar. These work silently and are maintenance-low. The company Taurus uses Kevlar belts, i. e., for their premium products like the Taurus IC70 Pro and the IC90 Pro. These belts are produced by the company Hutchinson in France and stand for first-class quality.

Sitting comfort, handlebar and adjusting possibilities

Your indoor cycle should be equipped with a sporty saddle, which supports you optimally in a dynamic cardio training. The handlebar should offer different grip positions, so that your training is varied and you can find the appropriate hand position on the handlebar. Make sure that the handlebar is very stable and non-slip, so that sweaty hands do not slip off and so you can get off the saddle while exercising.

Saddle and handlebar of your indoor cycle should offer you the possibility to change your position in vertical and horizontal position. Many models have quick release locks, which allow you to do your adjustment quickly and easily. An infinitely variable adjustment is ideal, because you can adjust the indoor cycle even better to your height.

Pedals and foot straps

Take a look at the pedals when you buy your indoor cycle - in order to be able to do an ideal power transmission on the pedals. The foot should find a safe stand in the (basket) pedals, so that slipping off is avoided. The safe hold in the pedals is an extremely important aspect, because indoor cycles do not have freewheel. That means: the axis is stiffly connected to the crank. If you pedal backwards, i. e., the flywheel would rotate in the other direction as well.

Additional accessory

As already mentioned at the beginning, indoor cycles were invented by cycling pros. It's still proven even after many years of the invention. The pedals and the saddle can be easily exchanged, so that you can equip your indoor cycle, i. e., with click pedals or your racing bike saddle. These are the same standard threads and holders like for trecking or racing bikes.

Further information

The most indoor cycles are equipped with transport wheels. These should be on the feet below the balance mass in any case. So you can easily move the indoor cycle to the desired place without much effort. As further accessory we recommend you a training computer, which calculates important data, i. e., time, distance, speed, RPM, total distance as well as calories and heart rate in combination with an appropriate chest strap.
