We tested (and loved) another bike from Echelon, the Connect EX-5. The EX-5 has a built-in tablet screen that the Sport does not, but both bikes share a couple of key features, including padded handlebars that provide a comfortable grip, the flexibility to ride with regular sneakers or clip in with SPD cycling shoes and a magnetic flywheel (the device that adds friction to your ride) with 32 levels of resistance. 

With this purchase of the Connect Sport, you’ll also get a complimentary six-month membership to the Echelon Fit App, which usually costs $19.99 a month, saving you about $120 per year. When you download the app on a smartphone or tablet, you’ll have access to Echelon’s 1,600-plus cycling  and off-bike classes, including yoga, barre, strength training and more, which you can take live or on-demand. You can also filter the classes based on length, ability and music, from 20-minute beginner classes with hip-hop tunes to 75-minute advanced endurance rides with pop songs, so you’ll be sure to find one that works for you, your fitness level and your personal taste.
