How to choose a spin bike?

Full of vigor and passion, the spin bike is pretty popular with young people, which enables you to exercise with music. While sweating, you lose fat and drop trouble. In addition, most household spin bikes are small in size and widely used, thus being the first choice for the whole family to exercise. Then how to choose a spin bike? Here are four focuses when choosing a spin bike.

I. Bike body

1. At present, there are many kinds of spin bikes on the market. Each company has its own practices for the structural design of the bike body, such as X-shaped design, central double-fork design, and V-shaped design.

2. Note whether the design can evenly distribute the gravity of the rider so that the bike body can be stable without shaking during riding, and the damage to the bake is relatively slight.

3. Pipes are easy to compare. The thinner the circular pipe, the poorer the bearing capacity. The thicker the square pipe or elliptical pipe, the greater the bearing capacity, and the better the ride stability.

II. Flywheel

1. For the flywheel, pay attention to nothing more than its material and weight. It is generally made of iron and aluminum.

2. Most of the flywheels on the market are made of iron, whereas the more advanced flywheels prefer aluminum.

III. Resistance and brake

1. Most spin bikes use friction to form resistance to the brake, which inevitably generates certain noise and is easy to wear the resistance wheel.

2. The gasket material used for friction is vital, and attention must be paid to its maintenance. The spin bike makes riders sweat, as a result, corresponding measures should be taken to avoid rust on iron products.

IV. Magnetic resistance system

1. The magnetic resistance system uses the contact surface between the magnet and aluminum to generate an eddy current to form resistance. The larger the contact area, the stronger the resistance generated by eddy current.

2. This braking resistance mode will not produce debris caused by friction, and no matter how much the resistance is, there will be no friction sound when stepping on the pedal, and the operation is quite smooth.

V. Electromagnetic resistance + smart connection

1. Now, the most advanced smart electromagnetic resistance spin bike is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, which can be used to wirelessly connect the mainstream sports apps on the market to allow the riders to enjoy more programs. The bike resistance can be automatically adjusted according to programs, without manual operation at all. Simple follow-up training can maximize the fitness effect.

2. Higher power accuracy. As an important indicator of sports ability evaluation, the concept of power has been gradually popularized in the professional sports field. Electromagnetic resistance bikes can not only make the power value more accurate but also accurately match the program resistance according to your sports ability so that you can half the work with double results.

What is the best spin bike brand? Everyone may have an answer to this question. Find out more bikes here, and choose the most suitable one instead of the most expensive one.

HOW TO SET UP YOUR SPIN BIKE

Spin bikes are easy to use and highly effective in fat burning, thus being popular with fitness people. During use, there are many things to pay attention to. If the posture is incorrect, it will not only fail to achieve the exercise targets but also cause damage to the body.

Four key points of the correct posture for riding a spin bike

1. Seat height

Before using a spin bike, check and adjust it to avoid some injuries from the beginning and exercise in the most comfortable posture.

The most appropriate height of the spin bike seat is the height close to the human buttock when standing upright beside the bike, at which the knee joint can form a slight curvature when the pedal is at the lowest point.

Do not make the seat too low, otherwise, too much pressure will be exerted on the knee, and the knee joint is at great risk of damage; do not make it too high either, which is not conducive to exercise.

2. Distance between seat and handle

The short distance between the seat and the handle means a short distance between the body and the handle, which forces the knee joint forward and exerts pressure on the knee joint, causing greater injury.

The knee should not be above the toe tip when using a spin bike. However, the seat should not be too far from the handle.

3. Handle height

Some people like to adjust the height of the handle to a very low level so that the spine has a big curve and the whole body is bowed.

This posture may be handsome, stylish, and convenient for leg exercise in the beginning;

however, long-term exercise in such a way may have adverse effects on the spine, especially the cervical vertebra and lumbar vertebra. In severe cases, hospitals may be required.

Under normal circumstances, after adjusting the seat, adjust the handle to the height of the seat, keep the back as straight as possible, and exercise normally and reasonably.

4. Gradually adjust resistance in your first ride

Spin bikes have a braking system, but their wheels are much heavier than those of ordinary bikes. If you cannot control the rotating force, you may be injured.

Before use, you can add some resistance according to your leg strength and body condition, and use the brake reasonably and correctly.

The fat burning and trimming effect of the spin bike is great, but also because of the high intensity of exercise, you are prone to injuries. During exercise, attention must be paid to the correct posture and the amount of exercise. Exercise should be scientific and reasonable.

Friction Vs Magnetic Vs Electromagnetic Resistance for Spin Bikes

1. Friction Resistance Spin Bikes

Principle of resistance adjustment: The resistance is adjusted through the physical friction between the brake disk and the flywheel. Generally, this adjustment mode will generate noise due to physical friction, and the resistance change is not smooth enough, so the adjustment range is small.

Disadvantages: The accuracy is relatively poor, and the adjustment is prone to be over-limit or not enough. Another disadvantage is that the flywheel will generate inertia during riding. Sometimes, if you do not pay attention to it, your feet will slide away from the pedal easily, causing certain danger.

2. Magnetic Resistance Spin Bikes

Principle of resistance adjustment: Magnets are installed on both sides of the metal flywheel, and the resistance is adjusted by controlling the distance between the magnet and the flywheel via a wire motor. The particular strong magnet material is used to realize a balanced state of no friction and non-contact suspension between the large flywheel and the magnet. The movement resistance can be controlled through the distance adjustment and the resistance level can be adjusted more accurately.

Advantages: no friction, ultra-quiet; low loss, no change of accessories for life; high smoothness, never getting stuck during riding; automatic resistance control, no manual adjustment needed; linking with sports app, various programs.

3. Electromagnetic Resistance Spin Bikes

Principle of resistance adjustment: mainly includes the magnetic effect of electric current and Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, namely, the process in which the conductor in the magnetic field cuts the magnetic line of force to generate induced current, and the magnetic field creates ampere force (Lorentz force) on the live conductor. If the bike keeps powered on, the user experience is better. It is the highest-end bike product in the market.

Compared with ordinary magnetic resistance bikes, except for the quiet effect, automatic resistance adjustment, and more smart programs, electromagnetic resistance spin bikes also have the following advantages:

1. The adjustment speed is faster. The adjustment from the highest gear to the lowest gear needs less than 0.1s, while the wire motor takes at least 3s-5s.

2. The adjustment granularity is finer. The resistance adjustment can be divided into 1,000 gears, while the wire motor can achieve 32 gears at most.

3. The power accuracy is higher, up to ±5%, while the wire motor has poor accuracy, generally ±20-30%.

MAGENE smart spin bike is a quiet and compact smart bike specially designed for fat burning and trimming, with electromagnetic resistance perfect for the household. The smart bike adopts the EMS patented electromagnetic resistance technology independently developed and realizes accurate power calculation and control through the multi-dimensional power compensation algorithm. In comparison with traditional spin bikes, it features a more smart experience, richer programs, and more scientific exercise methods. Moreover, MAGENE has cooperated with several world-renowned software service providers so that the bike is compatible with more than 20 mainstream cycling and sports apps.

Magene Awesome G801 Smart Spin Bike with Black Technology!

The spinning bike, similar to the normal bike comprised of the handlebar, seat, pedal, and flywheel, is stably connected as a whole. However, thanks to scientific hardware design, the spinning bike performs better by following ergonomic design principles, making the cycling posture more comfortable.

Professional cyclists, before cycling, will make specialized adjustments to the distance from the seat to the handlebar of the spinning bike. Of course, before riding the spinning bike, we should adjust the height of the seat and handlebar to find the best posture for cycling.

The above pictures show the common design for height adjustments and braking in the market. Magene Smart Bike has not only optimized these functions but also developed the smart control resistance to make operations easier and facilitate smoother training. The above-mentioned is not enough to make the spinning bike excellent. What matters most is the scientific and rigorous control system for test and resistance detection.

MAGENE uses the electromagnetic resistance based on the normal bike and adds the electronic control device to the G801 spin bike. The size of the current through the iron core can change the magnetic field strength around the flywheel, creating resistance to hinder the flywheel movement. It simulates the actual road conditions and gives feedback to users, creating an outdoor-like cycling experience. In addition, the accurate calculation of torque and cadence values can provide multiple exercise parameters to users, thus improving cycling efficiency and increasing work effectiveness to avoid ineffective output.

Now, follow Onelap coach, and let’s look at the detailed structural breakdown of Magene Smart Bike:

The patented and mm-precision quick-release developed by our own is no longer restricted to the traditional bike adjustments of the hole position with the fixed height. Even non-professional cyclists can make fitting freely.

I. Seatpost + Handlebar with Any Height Adjustable from 155 to 185cm

II. Mobile Phone and Pad Sucker, Say Goodbye to Black and White Screens

Fix mobile phone or pad with one hand. It supports mobile phones and pads of any size. Release lightly and it’s fixed stably.

III. Smart Electromagnetic Resistance, 100-level Resistance Adjustment

The resistance supports adjustments from 0 to 99, creating a seamless transition of the exercise intensity and rejecting the improper fitness method without feedback, and relying on pure hand-twisting adjustments.

The resistance size is adjusted mainly through the main control board to control the current size intelligently, without any friction, no required manual switch. The more accurate the adjustment, the more uniform the resistance. The iron core generates resistance through the eddy current magnetic field to hinder the dead flywheel movement. The stronger the magnetic field, the greater the resistance.

IV. View Resistance Level and Power Value at Any Time

The low-end spinning bike sold in the market does not provide cadence, resistance, and other values, but is also unable to connect with the game or applications to provide feedback. Due to a lack of real resistance and the actual road conditions, it is impossible to provide genuine feedback on the exercise effect.

The Magene spinning bike provides more accurate training data, rather than a blind focus on cadence.

V. Coverage Less than 0.5 Square Meters

The light bike body has a net weight of only 30kg, covering an area of less than 0.5 square meters. The rollers on the front floor pipe move smoothly. It can ensure exercise security during its use. And when not in use, this exquisite and compact product can be put away, not taking up space.

VI. Sensitive Speed Test, even to Test a Cadence of 200 RPM with Ease

The speed test adopts the ultra-high sensitivity chip. Even when the national professional player performs the highly intensive training, it can detect the cycling speed with ease and provide the real-time cadence value.

VII. Q Factor: 155mm

The self-developed crank of high strength ensures a lower Q factor. Compared with iron cranks, the crank looks more awesome with greater strength.

The Q factor is the distance between two cranks, commonly known as the pedal stance width. A distance of 155mm between two feet is found to be the best for cycling based on the ergonomic design principles and tests by hardware developers. The 155mm is the most comfortable and effective stance width as the knees are perpendicular to the power point, making the pedaling more efficient.

VIII. Fixed Gear with Fan Blades

The self-developed fixed gear with fan blades can dissipate heat from system operation timely. Compared with the bladeless electromagnetic flywheel, the temperature is lower by 10 degrees.

IX. Colorful Ambient Light

The colorful ambient light enables us to straightforwardly learn about the self-power or the heart rate zone, as well as the training intensity.

—Exercise status without the heart rate monitor: recognize and output the power range according to the always-on model: [red above 91%] [yellow 81-90%] [green 71-80%] [blue 61-70%] [white 0-60%]

—Exercise status with the heart rate monitor: recognize and output the heart rate zone according to the always-on model: [red above 91%] [yellow 81-90%] [green 71-80%] [blue 61-70%] [white 0-60%]

X. USB Charge, Unimpeded Playing

Magene Smart Bike, over one-year polished by dozens of MAGENE engineers, is a new spinning bike that integrates intelligence, courses, games, coaches, and other multiple elements. The new spinning bike, combining hardware and software, together with the MAGENE heart rate monitors, can resolve the dilemma of home fitness without coach guidance and data analysis, but also it can provide 24-hour smart coaching courses and real coach guidance. Hence, exercise will be more scientific and efficient.
