Echelon Smart Connect EX5 Bike Review
by Martha Richardson
If you are looking for a spin bike or a spin bike with interactive training, check out the ECHELON EX5. It is a well built bike and offers interactive training without breaking your budget.
I like that the bike does not come with a built in console. By using your own device as a console, you have unlimited opportunities to use the ECHELON APP or any of the numerous interactive training apps that are now available. Why commit to only one platform for the next 5+ years that you will own this bike? Why not have several apps depending on what type of workout you want on any given day.
The updated handle bars on the EX5 are superior. They adjust up and down as well as forward and back. The pedals allow you to use clip in SPD cycling shoes or toe cages with your sneakers.
In conclusion if you are looking for a durable spin bike that also offers interactive training, the ECHELON EX5 is a great option.
