Like fitness mirrors and treadmills, at-home spin bikes have blown up over the past few years. Peloton has been leading the charge (and they make an excellent indoor cycle) but you don’t have to spend $1,000+ to get a great spin bike, as proven by this Echelon EX-3.
With a regular price tag of about $800, Echelon’s EX-3 has always offered serious bang for your buck, but it’s currently even more affordable thanks to a $250 discount on Amazon. This saves you 31% and brings the price down to just $550 — one of the best prices we’ve ever seen for a high-tech, brand-name spin bike. Plus, it comes just in time for indoor workouts as the weather gets prohibitively cold outside.
If you’ve been thinking of buying an indoor cycle, act fast on this deal, as it will only last a couple of days. Also, note that you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to access the EX-3 deal. If you’re not a Prime member, sign up for a 30-day free trial here to access the discount.
If you want to feel like you’re back in the seat at a real studio or you just want a full-body workout without leaving the house, you can do it all with the EX-3, and at a fraction of the price of competitor bikes. The bike features 32 resistance levels that you can turn up using the center knob. The ergonomic handles, meantime, allow for a number of riding styles, whether you want to get down in the saddle and accelerate, or do some push-ups while you sprint.
The EX-3 doesn’t come with an included touchscreen like the new (and currently discounted) Echelon EX5-S, but it does include a stand for your own tablet or phone so you can join a class, virtually compete with your friends, or watch something while you put the pedal to the floor. If you download the Echelon Fit app, you’ll be able to access a ton of live classes and workouts to get you through the week, whether you want to take a cycling class or do some yoga. If you order on Amazon, you also have the option to add the Echelon United Monthly Membership with full access to classes.
The bike comes in at a compact 55 x 20 x 55 inches, which won’t take up a ton of space in your living room, bedroom or garage. The padded seat and handlebars are both super easy to adjust too, to help you find your most comfortable riding position. The bike can support almost all heights and weight up to 300 pounds.
The EX-3’s price includes a one-year warranty. You can also choose to finance the bike from $22 a month on Echelon’s site. And if you need to return the fitness bike, Echelon offers a free 30-day return policy, too.
The Amazon deal is tied to Cyber Monday, and Echelon is also taking 25% off all connected gear and free shipping this week, no promo code needed. Along with Echelon’s EX-3 Connect Fitness Bike, you can also score more Echelon gear at up to 35% off on Amazon this Cyber Week.
