PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

The immersive, virtual training experience just got better with the Peloton Bike+, featuring a new intuitive design and 23.8-inch HD rotating touchscreen so users can easily transition between workout modalities. 

The bike is durable and attractive, constructed from welded steel and powder coated for a sleek design. The sport series saddle comes with an ergonomic center channel, which creates a comfortable riding experience. But perhaps the most notable aspect of the Peloton Bike+ is, of course, its virtual training. Membership to Peloton—which is an additional monthly subscription fee—provides exclusive access to thousands of on-demand and live classes, coaching, challenges, and leaderboards for those who like to train with a tribe. The Peloton Bike+ is a steep investment but, with the variety of workout options and quality of the machine itself, it could be one worth making.

Product Summary

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have heard of Peloton and its massive following of fitness enthusiasts. The Peloton Bike+ is one of the many beloved cardio machines produced by Peloton and comes with impressive new specs. 

The bike itself is incredibly durable, made from welded steel and powder coated for a sleek-looking design. Industrial-grade bearings, magnetic resistance, and a power transmission drive belt make for a smooth, quiet, and efficient ride. And, with a compact footprint of 4 feet long by 2 feet wide, it’s great for those who have limited floor space. 

The Peloton Bike+ features a rotating 23.8-inch HD touchscreen with reduced-reflective and an anti-smudge coating. The swivel makes it easy to transition from a bike to floor workout. With the Peloton membership, users have access to thousands of live and on-demand classes, virtual coaching, leaderboards, challenges, and training plans for all different workout types. Membership is required to use the bike but, let’s be honest, if you’re buying a Peloton Bike+ you likely already intended to get the membership. 

The vivid display is equipped with an 8-pixel front-facing camera with privacy slider. The console has 2.2 Channel front-facing stereo speakers with 2.2 rear-facing woofers. Combined, users get a 360-degree sound for a truly immersive experience. With auto-resistance, the Bike+ automatically adjusts to match the instructor callouts so it’s really like having a coach right there.

The Peloton Bike+ makes it easy to stay on track with your fitness goals as users can easily pair their Apple Watch to share metrics. In fact, users can just tap their Apple Watch to the Bike+ screen to instantly track cycling workouts. If you’re someone who loves to analyze workout stats, these features make it seamless.

The Peloton Bike+ comes with a steep price tag. But, the quality of the bike and overall Peloton experience is worth it for many people. The limited warranty (five-year frame, 12-month bike components, pedals, touchscreen and labor) is a bit disappointing considering how much it costs, but, with its quality components, it is built to last.
