Best upright exercise bike under $500

Many gym goers will agree that there is a lot of choice in bike models as well as price points. We want to have  a look at which models surpass everything we were expecting as well as being priced below 500 bucks.

We will take into account design & structure, comfort levels, challenge & difficulty levels, value for money and feedback from consumers and experts. By doing this you get a broader view of what each offers, and if it suits your training needs.

Schwinn 170

As a huge brand in this industry, you kind of expect a high level of quality which can often overshadow what is on offer. This model however, does meet the quality associated with many of Schwinn’s other upright designs of the past with twenty nine exercise programs, and twenty five levels of resistance.

A smart computer console allows easy controlling of both of this through menus plus tracking key cycling stats is all possible using the monitor.

As for comfort, it is equipped with a nicely padded saddle that is contoured to ensure users feel at ease even in the harder rides.

Overall customers have provided mostly good feedback and reviews. The same applies to various fitness industry experts. Read our review here.

Bladez Fitness Jet GS

Another great example of a upright indoor cycle is the Jet GS. Well priced with some top class features allow it to sneak into our list. It comes with a forty pound flywheel and easily controllable resistance levels that will suit many different levels of fitness.

On top of this, there is a lot of adjustable features that can be changed to fit your comfort needs including the seating and handles.

Also included is a solid warranty that covers five years on the frame, and one year on the parts. It also comes with ninety days labor should it be required.

Despite being a slightly less popular brand, it has attracted glowing reviews from all over making it one of the ones to watch at this price level.

Horizon M4

Perhaps a underrated choice and one we felt deserved to be listed through it’s strength of design and workout functions alone. There is plenty of value for money to be found within it’s lengthy spec list and all are aimed at helping you achieve your weight loss and exercise goals.

This is a indoor cycle that is equipped with a forty two pound flywheel that ensures rides are consistently stable and smooth.

Includes ten years warranty on frame as well as one year on labor and parts.

Users who have bought this bike have not offered many complaints with several pieces of feedback from different sources singing it praises. Learn more about it in our review here.

Final thoughts

It is difficult to compile such a list in the under $500 category due to the strength of competition. We have found that each will arguably provide you your moneys worth as they have great overall durability and a huge amount of training apps built in. There is no specific winner because different people have different exercise equipment requirements, but you can’t go far wrong with these machines at this budget level.

Please note: Each bike was listed below $500 at the time of typing this review
