How long will the Echelon EX 3 Connect Bike - Upright last?

Made from an exceptional mix of steel, the Echelon EX 3 Connect Bike weighs a light weight 104 lbs. and can hold users with a maximum of 300 lb. weight. It comes with a rather uninspiring 12 months limited parts and labor warranty which does not leave much expectation for long term use. This cycle is best suited for light use and with proper care, purchasers might get a few years of service from this machine though heavier users should keep on shopping.

Brief Overview

The Echelon EX 3 Connect Bike offers studio fitness in a comfortable home setting. It has Bluetooth capabilities opening a world of travel through the Echelon app along with other fun and interactive workouts. Quality features along with a sleek rather compact design help this cycle fit easily into any home workout environment. There is also a choice of 3 different colors to better fit individualized styles with either a solid white or solid black, and then a black with red piping accents.

Overall Quality

The Echelon EX 3 Connect Bike has vertical adjustable handlebars that resemble a bull and require users to enter the racing position when engaging in strenuous exercise sessions. It can hold a streaming device and has a Bluetooth option for those looking for a more interactive workout. The device holder also pivots 180 degrees to offer users the option of stepping off to continue their workout sessions beside the bike. The pedals have 2 different sides - either toe cages or it is SPD compatible for cyclers with the correct riding shoes. The seat is adjustable in a horizontal and vertical manner allowing users of varying heights to find their most comfortable workout position. The EX 3 Connect has a 28 lb. flywheel that offers smooth performance through 32 levels of resistance. Those wanting to workout out upper body extremities simply grab the dumbbells located conveniently behind the well vented seat.
