Due to the vast amount of fitness bikes on the market, it can be challenging to know which bike is best suited to your needs and it can be difficult to decide what to go for. With six bikes currently in Echelon’s connect bike range, we have the perfect fitness bike for everyone. bailey


One of the main aspects to consider when purchasing an exercise bike is what are you looking for in terms of capabilities. Are you wanting a fitness bike that is simple, and can be connected to a smart device, or are you wanting a bike that has all the mod cons? When it comes to our smart bikes, the Echelon range has a variety of capabilities. All of our smart bikes feature 32 resistance levels, adjustable handle bars, adjustable seats, water bottle holders, connection to live and on-demand classes via the Echelon Fit app and Bluetooth connectivity.

For cycling enthusiasts…

If you are an experienced cyclist or are looking to take up the sport more competitively, we would suggest looking at our Connect EX-3, Connect GT+ and Connect EX-5s smart bikes, as they feature SPD compatible pedals with toe cages and include frame-mounted dumbbell holders for when you are want to mix up your routine with off-equipment sessions.

For tech enthusiasts…

When it comes to your cycling session, you need to decide whether you want to use your own smart device or if you want a fitness bike with a fully integrated display system. For those wanting to use their own smart devices and connect to the bike that way, our Connect Sport, Connect EX-3 and Connect GT+ are the perfect options for you. But if you are looking for a high-tech bike with a fully integrated HD screen, then our Connect EX-5s, Connect Sport-s and Connect EX-7s are more suitable suited to you.


Having a budget in mind is always beneficial when it comes to getting a connect bike. However, we would suggest looking at the purchase of equipment as an investment; when it comes to fitness bikes the prices often reflects the quality of the bike. Spending more money to get a fitness bike from a well-rated brand is always advisable. At Echelon, we are known for the quality of our fitness products. Our most affordable bike is the Echelon Connect Sport, closely followed by the Connect EX-3. However, if you are looking to spend a little more on your new fitness bike and want all the gadgets included, our premium bike is the Connect EX-5s. The Connect Sport-s also includes an integrated 10” rotating screen.

If a large, one-off payment is putting you off purchasing a fitness bike, we also offer monthly finance options for all our bikes to spread out the payments.


When it comes to getting a smart bike, you will need to consider the amount of space you have available for it. If you have a smaller space, then we would suggest getting our limited-edition GT+ Connect bike which has a compact design and tiny footprint to fit in smaller spaces, it also features integrated front wheels for easy mobility and storage. The Connect Sport is also one of our smaller and lighter bikes, which can be easily moved and stored.
