A spin bike is a type of indoor bike or stationary bike that both strengthens your lower body and improves cardiovascular fitness. The spin bike offers an experience that is closest to actual road biking, making it the best choice for calorie-burning high-intensity workouts or interval training.

In this list we showcase the best of the best spin bikes on the market. If you’re new to spinning or are on a tighter budget, maybe you’d like to have a look at our favorite spin bikes under $500.

Other kinds of indoor bikes include the upright stationary bike and the recumbent bike. The recumbent bike is usually best for people with joint or back issues, or those who are recovering from injuries.

At a glance, the upright bike and spin bikes look similar but they are quite different.

A spin bike allows you to pedal in a variety of positions such as leaning forward or even standing up. It does so by having more adjustable saddle and handlebars as well as stronger reinforced frames and heavier flywheels.

Deciding on a spin bike is not so simple. The variety of spin bikes can be mind-boggling, with differing features, functions and specs. For the beginner, it is natural to go for budget friendly options but for more experienced or athletic people, the mid-range or high-end bikes might serve you better.

To make it easy for you to choose, we have scoured the internet and selected the top 10 spin bikes. This article presents to you their pros and cons, based on in-depth research and multiple user reviews. Also, read until the end for a handy guide on what to look for when buying a spin bike.

#1 Best high-end spin bike

Keiser M3i Indoor Cycle

Keiser M3i Indoor Cycle

Our Score: 4.75 / 5

Editor's opinion:

One of the most popular high-end bikes is the Keiser M3i. This unique-looking spin bike is as good as it looks and gives users a true road bike feeling. A worthy alternative to the Peloton, the M3i gives you a premium spin cycle experience without extra subscription fees or app lock-ins.

Pros

  • Commercial grade spin bike
  • Fastest rotating flywheel on an indoor bike
  • Durable and high quality construction
  • Easily maneuverable
  • Works with any cycle training app

Cons

  • Lacks a touchscreen or HD console
  • No leaderboard/community feel

This spin bike is in a class of its own. For starters, the beautiful steel flywheel on this bike is exceptionally light. Weighing just 8 lbs, Keiser relies on speed rather than weight to give you a smooth spinning experience.

The M3i has the fastest rotating indoor bike flywheel in the world while keeping things super quiet by using an Eddy Current magnetic mechanism.

It is a commercial-grade spin bike that is frequently lauded for its durability and high-quality construction. Assembly and transport is easy as the bike weighs only 85 pounds.

There is a digital display showing your heart rate, speed, time, and calories. The bike is Bluetooth enabled and syncs with the Keiser M Series app where you can view a more in-depth analysis of your performance. One of the perks of the digital computer is that the M3i is able to sync data with any cycle training app, not just the Keiser app.

To get the best of both worlds, many users opt to pair the Keiser M3i bike with the Peloton app – a high-quality bike with the most interactive app.
Compared to the Peloton, the Keiser M3i works out to be slightly more affordable and you don’t get locked into the Peloton app.

The Keiser M3i has a weight limit of 350lbs, higher than the Peloton weight capacity of 305lbs. The pedals on the Kaiser are SPD and toe cage. Both spin bikes offer live spin classes with instructor callouts.

One downside is that the Kaiser M3i doesn’t allow you to compete with other riders, while the Peloton has a leaderboard to give you that community feeling. Another disadvantage of the Kaiser M3i is that it lacks a touchscreen display, although it does have a tablet holder.

#2 Best overall spinbike

Bowflex spin bike

Bowflex C6 Spin Bike

Our Score: 4.75 / 5

Editor's opinion:

For half the price of a Peloton or Kaiser M3i, the Bowflex C6 offers a spin bike workout of comparable quality. The C6 features 100 levels of magnetic resistance, the ability to work with any 3rd party cycle app, and wide adjustability, making it an excellent spin bike for all types of people.

Pros

  • 100 levels of magnetic resistance
  • 4-way adjustable handlebars
  • Compatible with most cycle apps
  • Perfect for tall or short people

Cons

  • No touchscreen

The Bowflex C6 is a well-designed spin bike that is one of the best at its price point (typically just under or around $1000). It sports a 40 lb flywheel, magnetic resistance that is controlled with a resistance knob, a robust warranty, and a compact design. Best of all, it syncs effortlessly with the majority of cycle apps, so you can shop around and pick an app that suits your personal needs best.

On the Bowflex C6, both the saddle and handlebars are adjustable 4-ways. This is an advantage over Peloton that only supports up and down adjustments for the handlebars. User reviews consistently praise the Bowflex for its wide fit, as both short people and taller people have no problems adjusting this bike to fit their bodies.

There isn’t a touchscreen on the bike, but there is a backlit LCD console that displays your workout stats including heart rate. The bike comes with a heart rate armband sensor that connects via Bluetooth. Apart from that, there are two water bottle holders, a pair of dumbbells (3 lb each) with cradles and toe cage/dual-link pedals. To set up your own devices on it, there is also a tablet holder.

Essentially, this is a simple but effective spin bike that suits everyone, of all body types and different fitness levels. It is easy enough for beginners to hop on for the occasional bike workout using the LCD console for basic monitoring. At the same time, the C6 is capable enough for experienced spin enthusiasts to whip out their favorite app and enjoy a heart-pumping session.

#3 Best interactive spin bike

NordicTrack Commercial Studio Cycle S15i

NordicTrack Commercial Studio Cycle S15i

Our Score: 4.5 / 5

Editor's opinion:

If you are looking for an at-home workout that feels as good as a trainer-led studio session, the Nordic Track S15i Studio Cycle is the bike to consider. The 14 inch HD touchscreen enables you to join in on live classes where the personal trainer automatically adjusts the resistance, decline, and incline of your bike.

Pros

  • Live interactive spin classes
  • Resistance and incline can be auto-adjusted
  • Generous weight capacity (350 lbs)

Cons

  • iFit membership auto-renews each year

One of the greatest challenges of working out from home is the boredom of doing it alone. Some people need that extra push from a trainer to maximize their workouts. If that is you, the NordicTrack S15i could be a worthwhile investment.

It doesn’t get much more interactive than the NordicTrack. This spin bike is decked out with a 14″ Smart HD Touchscreen and 1 year of iFit membership is included with the purchase of the bike, giving you access to thousands of workouts.

There are live spin class sessions you can join, and the bike can automatically adjust resistance and incline to match the class. The display console can be rotated 360 degrees, making it easy for you to join some of the other classes included in iFit (such as yoga, Bootcamp, and crosstraining).

Interactivity aside, the spin bike itself is of excellent quality. It sports an inertia-enhanced flywheel and magnetic resistance can be controlled digitally over 22 levels. If that is not challenging enough, there is up to 20 percent incline and a 10 percent decline.

One downside is that to activate the bike and 1 year of free iFit, a credit card is needed. The membership is set to automatically renew the following year. If you cancel the iFit, there are still a few workouts built into the console, but of lower quality and less variety.

#4 Best sturdy spin bike

Sole SB900 Spin Bike

Sole SB900 Spin Bike

Our Score: 4.5 / 5

Editor's opinion:

This is a solid spin bike that does what it says on the can. With toe-clip pedals, 48 lbs flywheel, and Eddy Current Magnetic Resistance powering its heavy-duty steel frame, this Sole spinning bike brings the feeling of outdoor cycling into the comfort of your home.

Pros

  • High-quality build
  • Compatible with wireless heart rate monitoring
  • SPD compatible
  • Wireless LCD display

Cons

  • Resistance knob issues
  • Not easily moved

Sole has a reputation for manufacturing high-quality home exercise equipment with emphasis on durability and strength. Well, the Sole SB900 lives up to the mark.

The highlights of this bike include Eddy Current magnetic resistance and its chrome-plated flywheel. Both handlebars and seat are adjustable. It also comes with a water bottle holder, SPD/toe clip pedals, and a tablet holder.

The 3″ x 4″ LCD display is backlit and wireless. It shows you all the necessary real-time stats like heart rate, distance, speed, calories, and RPM. The SB900 is compatible with wireless heart rate monitoring, although the chest strap is not included and needs to be purchased separately. To watch videos, there is a tablet holder.

Some user reviews have mentioned difficulty with the resistance knob, mainly complaining that there is too much resistance even at the lowest level.

Others have mentioned that the knob was not working initially, but with assistance from Sole customer service, they were able to identify the issue (a loose wire) and fix it in minutes.

The other possible drawback is its weight. The spin bike weighs 160lbs. Even though it has transportation wheels, moving it around it is not going to be easy.

#5 Best trainers and live classes

Peloton spin bike

Peloton Spin Bike

Our Score: 4.5 / 5

Editor's opinion:

The Peloton is a high-end spinning bike that promises to be more than just exercise equipment. Having a Peloton bike is all about the Peloton experience, which includes the app, Peloton community and the extra Peloton accessories. It is highly popular, with more than 1 million members as of last year.

Pros

  • Exceptional instructors and live workouts
  • Premium spinning bike
  • 22-inch touchscreen
  • No assembly needed

Cons

  • Expensive
  • “Locked in” to Peloton apps
  • Limited handlebar adjustability

The Peloton bike itself is sleek and well-built. It uses magnetic resistance for a very quiet spinning experience and it can be adjusted to great detail up to one percentage point.

The stock pedals are compatible with cycling cleats (like Look Delta) and there is a 22″ HD touchscreen built-in.

Peloton also offers several extras like Peloton shoes, weights, and headphones.

Unlike another spinning bike on this list, the Nordic Track S15i Studio Cycle, your Peloton cannot be automatically adjusted by the ‘live’ personal trainers, you would have to adjust the resistance of the Peloton bike by yourself

For the premium Peloton experience, including delivery, setup, and subscription, the Peloton will cost you upwards of $2000, making it the most expensive bike in this article.

To use the bike, there is an additional monthly subscription fee. This gives you access to the Peloton app and thousands of exercise classes you can join through its WiFi-enabled touchscreen, paid membership, and training programs with established spin instructors.

Is the Peloton spin bike worth it? For the average person who is starting out on a spin bike for the first time, or for someone who does spin sessions occasionally, probably not. You can be just as satisfied with other high-quality spin bikes that cost less than the Peloton and invest that extra money elsewhere.

If you are a person who enjoys having a premium fitness app and find that high-quality instructors truly elevate your workout – consider the Peloton.

The majority of reviews praise the exceptional fitness instructors and well-designed workouts. Currently, there is a 30-day free trial for all classes on the Peloton app, so you can get a sense of the Peloton experience before making the investment.

#6 Most aesthetic spin bike

Echelon Smart Connect EX3 Spin Bike

Echelon Smart Connect EX3 Spin Bike

Our Score: 4.35 / 5

Editor's opinion:

With a choice of 3 colors, if you need a spinning bike to match your interior design while preserving functionality and quality, the Echelon EX3 is your best bet. Pair it with the Echelon Fit app and experience an interactive spin cycle experience.

Pros

  • Interactive with Echelon Fit app
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • USB charging port

Cons

  • Uncomfortable saddle
  • No console

The Echelon EX3 has a 29 lbs flywheel, a resistance knob to toggle between thirty-two magnetic resistance levels, 4-way adjustable seat, and 2-way adjustable handlebars.

It comes in a choice of black, red, or white. The white model is particularly sleek in my opinion, sporting an all-white body for an exclusive look.

To sync with a wireless heart rate strap, it has Bluetooth connectivity. A USB charging port is included to keep your devices from running out of battery mid-workout.

The EX3 works best when paired with the Echelon Fit app. The app comes with several cool workout options like live classes and scenic rides. There is even a leaderboard to ride ‘live’ and hone your competitive streak.

However, the Echelon Fit app is payable monthly and it costs even more than the Peloton app.

One common complaint is the seat. Users have found the saddle to be hard and uncomfortable. If you don’t mind the extra step, it is possible to swap it out for a more comfortable seat (a regular bike saddle is compatible).

The Echelon EX3 and Sole SB900 are quite close in price, with the EX3 costing slightly more. Both have similar specs, but the Echelon lacks a console. If you enjoy using the Echelon Fit app, the EX3 is worth it. Otherwise, the Sole SB900 has a heavier flywheel, basic stats monitoring built-in, and could be a better purchase for people who don’t need a fitness app.

#7 Best for beginners

Schwinn IC3 Indoor Cycle

Schwinn IC3 Indoor Cycle

Our Score: 4.25 / 5

Editor's opinion:

The Schwinn IC3 is a definite step up from its more basic predecessor (the IC2). Also known as the IC7, the IC3 comes with a heavy 40-pound flywheel and belt drive system. The felt fabric brake pads are used to produce infinite resistance.

Pros

  • Heavier flywheel (40 lbs)
  • Belt drive
  • Wireless heart rate chest strap compatible
  • Generous warranty

Cons

  • Uncomfortable for tall people
  • Wobbling at high speeds

Schwinn gave their popular IC2 model a serious makeover to offer you the IC3. Looking at the specs, the IC3 has all the right features for a midrange spin bike. The flywheel is solidly built and at 40 lbs, it is sufficient for intense spin sessions. Compared to the IC2 that had a chain drive system, the IC3 has a swanky belt drive system to make your workouts quieter and smoother. The weight capacity is accordingly increased to 300 pounds (a 50 pound-step up from the IC2).

The pedals got an upgrade as well. The dual SPD pedals on the Schwinn IC3 have SPD clips while still preserving the metal toe cages for users without SPD compatible shoes.  However, the resistance system is pretty much the same, using felt brake pads to ramp up the challenge. The IC3 does not have magnetic resistance. If you need to keep an eye on your heart rate, the IC3 supports wireless heart rate tracking although the strap needs to be purchased separately.

The IC3 comes with an LCD display showing your heart rate, RPMs, time, distance, and calories burned. Both seat and handlebars support vertical and horizontal adjustments for maximum adjustability. The warranty deserves a mention as it covers a generous 10-year warranty for the frame, 2 years for the parts, and 1 year for electronics.

Coming to the downsides, a few reviews have mentioned some wobbling at higher RPMs. Not only that, some taller people have found this bike to be too short for comfort.

Overall, for the average person wanting a spin bike that is a step up from the Joroto X1S, the Schwinn IC3 is worthy of consideration.

#8 Best value magnetic bike

Sunny SFB1805 Spin Bike

Sunny SFB1805 Spin Bike

Our Score: 4.25 / 5

Editor's opinion:

For a midrange spin bike with magnetic resistance and a 44-pound flywheel, look no further than the Sunny SFB1805. The sturdy flywheel gives you a smooth and challenging ride, topped off with its hassle-free and micro-adjustable resistance.

Pros

  • Magnetic resistance
  • 300-pound weight capacity
  • 4-way adjustability for both seat and handlebars

Cons

  • Lacks a console
  • Pedals are not SPD compatible

Of the many spin bikes churned out by fitness company Sunny, one of the most popular models is the Sunny SFB1805. This spin bike is made of durable steel, with a sturdy frame that can support up to 300 pounds. The 44-pound flywheel is more than enough for the average user. Magnetic resistance and belt drive is a definite plus. It has a water bottle holder, an emergency stop brake and transportation wheels to be easily moved around.

Adjustability-wise, both the handlebar and the seat are adjustable in 4 ways. This flexible adjustability combined with its heavy construction means that this bike can suit a wide variety of body types. The pedals are not SPD compatible but come with metal cages to keep you from slipping. However, some users have reported swapping out the pedals for one with clips, so it is possible to upgrade the bike yourself.

Looking at the downsides, there isn’t an LCD console or digital monitor on the bike. There is a device holder for you to play videos on a tablet or phone, but there is nothing actually on the bike to monitor time, speed, and distance. If you like to keep track of your progress beyond just pedaling for a certain amount of time or following fitness classes, the lack of monitoring makes it tricky to do so.

#9 Best budget spin bike

JOROTO X1S Indoor Cycle

JOROTO X1S Indoor Cycle

Our Score: 4 / 5

Editor's opinion:

The Joroto X1S might be the cheapest spin bike on this list, but it still offers plenty of value for money. With a belt drive, cushioned wide seat and felt pad resistance, it is a solid entry-level spin bike perfect for beginners or those on a tight budget.

Pros

  • Value for money
  • Cushioned wide saddle
  • Belt drive

Cons

  • Fiddly foot pedals
  • Felt brake pads need maintenance
  • Display console is not backlit

The Joroto X1S is a spin bike designed for home use and is targeted at beginners. It has a 35-pound flywheel which in combination with a belt drive gives users a quiet cycling session. The seat is designed to be extra wide and thick for maximum comfort. Adjustability is adequate – you can move the saddle both horizontally and vertically.

It comes with a digital monitor that shows you relevant stats of time, speed, calories, and distance. There is a tablet holder just behind the monitor, perfect for watching spin classes. To stay hydrated, Joroto included a water bottle holder on this bike. The foot pedals are not SPD compatible but come with straps and a metal cage.

As with the majority of bikes in this price range, the Joroto X1S does not have magnetic resistance. Instead, it relies on felt brake pads to increase the resistance. Physical brake pads do the job just fine, but need maintenance. Do note that Joroto has an even cheaper version of this spin bike that comes with a chain drive. Despite the savings, the version with the belt drive is more recommended as belt drives are far superior to chain mechanisms.

For this price point, it’s an excellent buy. Users praise its quietness, sturdiness, and ease of assembly. One complaint is that the straps on the foot pedal are fiddly to adjust and both hands are needed to do so. Also, if you exercise in a dark room, be aware that the display is not backlit.

#10 Spin bike with heaviest flywheel

Sunny SF-B1002 Spin Bike

Sunny SF-B1002 Spin Bike

Our Score: 4 / 5

Editor's opinion:

A strong contender to the SFB1805 is the Sunny SF-B1002. This spin bike sports a heavy-duty fly wheel of a whopping 49 pounds. It uses a belt drive system and physical brakes to give you resistance as you pedal.

Pros

  • 49-pound flywheel
  • Easy to assemble
  • Sturdy and stable

Cons

  • Leather brake pads (no magnetic resistance)
  • Difficult to adjust resistance levels
  • No console

Need a heavy-duty flywheel but don’t want to splurge on a name brand spin bike? The Sunny SF-B1002 could be the bike for you. It has a 49-pound flywheel and a belt drive system, promising you a smooth ride. The leather brake pads are a step up from the felt or fabric brake pads as they tend to last longer.

This spinning bike can be adjusted in both seat and handlebar, although the saddle is 4-way adjustable and the handlebar is only 2-way adjustable. The frame is well-built and sturdy, but the spin bike lacks a console. If you like to keep track of your workouts but don’t use a spin class or a wearable exercise tracker, this could be a drawback.

Resistance is adjusted through a knob. It is easy enough to use, but it is hard to gauge the exact level its set at. Using this bike, it takes a bit of guesswork to follow along with spin class videos.

Comparing the Sunny SF-B1002 and Sunny SFB1805, the Sunny SF-B1002 has a heavier flywheel but a reduced weight capacity of 275 pounds. It also uses physical brake pads instead of magnetic. The Sunny SFB1805 has a flywheel that weighs less, but at 44 pounds it is more than enough for most people. It also has magnetic resistance and a higher weight capacity. Both can be purchased for the same price. For a spin bike that is overall better, go for the Sunny SFB1805.

The best spin bike: buying guide, tips & tricks

When looking at the specs of a spin bike you are interested in, it is important to look at the features as a whole. Flywheel, drive, resistance mechanisms, and the build of the bike all work together to give a certain feel while pedaling.

For example, even though a heavier flywheel usually translates to a smoother ride, the best high-end bike on this list has the lightest flywheel, so remember there are some exceptions to the rule. Here are some of the common factors that might influence your buying decision.

1. Drive

Two types of drive systems are found in spin bikes – either a belt-based drive or a chain-based drive. Between the two, the better one in our opinion is the belt drive. Chain drives are noisier and need more maintenance. Spin bikes with belt drives are easier to adjust and give you a smoother pedaling experience. Chain drives are usually found in lower-end or budget spin bikes. Almost all mid-range and high-end bikes come with a belt drive.

2. Resistance

To make cycling challenging, there needs to be resistance. Spin bikes use different brake systems to achieve this resistance – either magnetic brakes or physical brake pads. Magnetic resistance systems are generally superior.

The lack of physical contact gives you a big reduction in sound. Physical brake pads are often made of fabric or more rarely leather. These may need replacing as they can wear down with heavy use.

3. Flywheel

As one of the most important parts of the bike, make sure to check the flywheel weight when deciding on a spin bike. The general rule of thumb is that you need at least a 35 lbs flywheel for a smooth cycling experience. This is because a heavier flywheel will give you more momentum. If you do regular spin classes, it might be worth looking for spin bikes with flywheels of 40 pounds and above.

In saying this, the Keiser is our top-rated spin bike and only has an 8 lbs flywheel so there are definitely exceptions to the rule.

4. Saddle

Two primary things to look for: comfort and adjustability.

A padded and comfortable saddle will motivate you to use the spin bike and for the long rides, you’ll be happy to have something a little more forgiving.

It is equally important for the saddle to be adjusted to the correct position ergonomically speaking. While the foot is in the six o’clock or bottom position, the knee should be slightly bent to avoid overextending the knee. Kaiser has produced a very helpful video demonstrating the correct adjustment of a spinning bike.

5. Maneuvrability

If space is lacking, you might need to put the bike away after use. Check that the spin bike comes with caster wheels at the bottom. Also, take note of the overall weight of the bike to see if it’s light enough to be moved easily.

6. Is a spin bike better than a treadmill?

The other popular piece of home exercise equipment is the treadmill. It is difficult to say which is better, as both have their own unique advantages.

The risk of injury is significantly lower with a spin bike. Jogging or running places more stress on the joints than riding a bike, whereas spinning is kinder to your knees as the bike takes a lot of pressure off your lower body.

A treadmill workout tends to burn more calories per hour, especially if you set it on a steep incline. At a steady pace, the spin bike requires less energy than the treadmill, however, calories burned are somewhat subjective and vary greatly between different people. It also depends on the type of exercise you do on the spin bike as spinning classes tend to be much more intensive than the average treadmill walk or jog.

Treadmills are generally bigger than spin bikes so if space is at a premium, a spin bike is better for smaller areas. If possible, try out both types of exercise equipment at a gym before deciding which one suits you best.

Final verdict

Whether you are a hardcore cyclist or beginner to home exercise, a spin bike is an excellent piece of equipment to add to your home gym. It doesn’t take up much space and used together with a good fitness app like the Peloton or iFit, it can be a fun and enjoyable way to get fit.
