PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

The Peloton Bike is more than just a bike—it’s an entire fitness community and experience that brings training from home to new levels. This bike itself is a well-made indoor stationary bike with a large, vivid 21.5-inch touchscreen display that enhances the immersive training experience. 

Featuring a compact footprint, adjustable screen, seat and handlebars, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth connectivity, USB microport, and a sport series saddle with ergonomic center channel, the Peloton Bike is stacked with impressive specs. 

What has brought this bike a cult-like following is the Peloton fitness platform. All-access membership to Peloton provides exclusive access to thousands of on-demand and live classes, coaching, challenges, and leaderboards for those who need some external motivation during a sweat session. The Peloton Bike is most certainly a costly investment, but one that brings with it an entire training experience.

Product Summary & Specs

Peloton has taken the fitness world by storm, gaining celebrity-like status—and for good reason. The Peloton fitness community offers exclusive access to thousands of live and on-demand fitness classes, challenges, leaderboards, and an endless variety of workout types. And, their line of premium cardio machines is as impressive as their platform. Perhaps most well-known in the Peloton line of fitness equipment is the Peloton Bike. 

This bike has a compact footprint at only 2-feet by 4-feet, which makes it a good fit in both small and large spaces. In addition to the virtual training platform, the Peloton Bike itself comes with top-of-the-line components. Its heavy-duty frame is made from welded steel and powder coated for a sleek look. The power transmission belt drive is responsive and provides enough resistance to challenge any athlete. An ergonomic Sports series saddle takes some time getting used to, but it’s suitable for most users. The bike supports a user weight up to 297 pounds. 

The Peloton Bike comes equipped with a vivid, 10-point multitouch, 21.5-inch  touchscreen display that displays in-workout metrics like power, cadence, resistance, and heart rate. What’s more, this screen tilts to adjust to user height, which enhances the immersive experience. A rear-facing stereo speaker system, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a built-in microphone, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity keeps you entertained and connected throughout any workout. 

A monthly subscription to Peloton—$39 for the all-access membership (going up to $44 per month on June 1, 2022)—is required to use the bike, which does add to the total cost. But, the reality is that if you’re considering a Peloton bike, it’s probably because you plan on becoming a part of the Peloton fitness community. While this bike carries a hefty price tag, it comes with many impressive features and connectivity that can enhance your exercise routine.
