Product Summary & Specs

Providing users with a low-impact, cardio workout, the Bowflex C6 is a high-quality bike at a decent price. For about $800, this bike features a backlit LCD metric console, 100 levels of magnetic resistance, dual-sided pedals (SPD or toe cage), a pair of 3-pound dumbbells, a media holder, and a Bluetooth-enabled heart rate armband monitor. 

Buyers receive a one-year free membership to JRNY, an online fitness platform with on-demand classes, live coaching, adaptive workouts, virtual destinations, and music playlists to keep you motivated as you sweat. Unlike many other bikes, using the Bowflex C6 does not require an app subscription and you are not locked into just one fitness app option. The C6 integrates with well-known, third-party fitness apps including Peloton, Sufferfest, Rouvy, FulGaz, Tacx, TrainerRoad, and Zwift. Keep in mind that many of those apps will require a subscription. 

The Bowflex C6 is designed to accommodate multiple users of varying sizes. Thanks to the four-way adjustable handlebars and padded seat, which can be adjusted vertically and horizontally, the Bowflex C6 can be customized for each use. The bike also supports users up to 330 pounds.

The C6 comes equipped with an impressive 100 adjustable levels of magnetic resistance. As a result, it suits riders of all fitness levels and provides variability in training. 

The display is a backlit LCD console, which is a bit disappointing. It would have been nice to see an interactive touchscreen on the Bowflex C6. That said, the C6 is compatible with both Android and iOS systems. With a secure tablet holder and Bluetooth connectivity, you can stay entertained with your own smart device if desired.
