The Echelon Connect EX3 has a durable powder-coated steel frame construction with back-mounted 28.6 lb flywheel, which delivers a smooth and stable ride that's great for beginners. It also has fully adjustable handlebars, a competition padded seat and dual-compatible pedals. It’s a compact bike, so is well suited to people with limited space, and we found it fairly easy to move around thanks to the transport wheels.
This Black Friday deal comes with a free trial for the Echelon app, which has a ton of live and on-demand classes available. For $39.99 a month you can access over 3000 live or on-demand classes. The membership allows up to five users, so your friends and family can enjoy the Echelon experience together. You’ll need your own tablet, smartphone or smart TV to stream these.
The EX3 is fully integrated and connects via Bluetooth to your smart device, meaning you can track your progress in real-time. You can also connect the bike to Facebook to share your workout with friends, or compete against each other.
