Bowflex VeloCore Review (2024): Innovative Leaning Bike

Bowflex VeloCore Review (2024): Innovative Leaning Bike

About a month ago, I was watching TV and an advertisement for the new Bowflex VeloCore popped on screen. I was fascinated to see a bike trying to compete with Peloton but with an added layer of intrigue: it can lean while you’re riding. Right away, I knew I had to order it and try it out for all you fine folks in the Garage Gym Review community.I love the core engagement you get when using the lean mode on this bike. It’s such a unique and fun feature that separates the VeloCore from other exercise bikes for a home gym. In this Bowflex VeloCore review, you can expect to see my opinion on what really matters – durability, overall value, and the leaning feature. I put this bike through my standardized tests to help you decide if this is worth your money. Read the full review.

Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Leaning feature activates core muscles
  • Large monitor with lots of information
  • Durable with almost no shaking while in use
  • User-friendly and simple to get started
What needs improvement ...
  • Difficult assembly with unclear instruction

Product Summary

Meet the indoor bike that’s thoughtfully engineered with leaning mode to create a wildly immersive riding experience. You’ll rock, sway, and bend to life down winding roads. Tilting gently from side to side as you sprint like a banshee toward the finish line. It’s a high-intensity escape that’ll help to ignite your arms, core, and your thrill for epic outdoor adventure…all from your living room.
