“The cord is too short”, “The cord is too long, I keep tripping on it”, “I can't put it outside, since there's no outlet”, or simply, “Oh, I didn't know I needed to plug it in!” We got the idea of a self-powered exercise bike by listening to our sports users.
We chose your favourite bike in our range (the Comfort) and provided it with a self-powering system. A true team effort between you, our partners, and us :)
How do you measure your heart rate?
Your 500 exercise bike comes with heart rate sensors integrated to the handlebar. 1. Place your hands on the sensors.
2. Your heart rate will appear on the screen of your console after a few seconds.
Simple and reliable!
The Hand-Pulse function (measures heart rate through the hands) should not be used by people wearing a pacemaker.
7 training programmes on the console:

How do you track and improve your progress?
To analyse your statistics and track your progress, this bike is compatible with the E-Connected app. How does it work? - Each week you set a goal to achieve, whether it's time spent on your bike, distance travelled, or calories burnt.
- As you exercise on your Bike500, you will see yourself approach your goal.
App available on iOS and Android, rated 4/5
How do you adjust the bike?
To ensure a good pedalling position, start by adjusting your saddle height:
Standing next to the bike, adjust it to hip height.
And the handlebars?
Depending on your height, higher handlebars will keep your back straighter. Lower handlebars will allow you to slightly lean your back forward (for greater power).
Be sure to tighten the toe clips to fit your feet.
Our team recommends retightening the screws on the bike every 6 months.
How do you move the bike?
- You can face the bike,
- use a foot to hold it in place
- and push the handlebars to tip the bike onto its wheels.
What muscles are working?
Your heart, quads, hamstrings, and calves have the fun of working hard as you pedal.
