JOROTO X1S Monitor
Apart from being chosen for its great resistance levels and budget price, this indoor bike is chosen by many users for its fitness monitor located on the front of the bike.
Its monitor stands out for presenting five different windows where you can view the time you have exercised, the distance, the speed used, the RPM, and the number of calories you have burned. You can observe in large size each one of the metrics separately for a few seconds on the top of the screen.
You will be able to configure both the time and the distance and calories you want to burn as a target; thus, you will see how time runs regressively for these values, and in another part of the screen, you will see the remaining values, helping you can improve yourself day by day.
Joroto X1S monitor works with batteries, and you will start it up just by pressing the mode button, but it also turns on automatically when you start pedaling.
In case you want to take a break, the monitor will automatically pause when you stop pedaling and continue when you continue the workout.
This spin bike is also one of the best exercise bikes for HIIT workout. It is built with heavy-duty and premium-quality cranks to support big and tall people who weigh up to 280 pounds.
It also comes with two pedals made of high-quality nylon, and where they have an adjustable cage, ensuring your feet stay in place on high-intensity pedaling. It should be noted that these cages are suitable for standard-size shoes.
In case you have difficulties putting your feet on the pedals, or maybe because of their constant use, they have been damaged, you can easily change them when you think it is necessary.
JOROTO X1S Flywheel
When talking about this magnificent JOROTO bicycle’s flywheel, it should be noted that it is very quiet even though it is integrated with a chain. While training, you can watch TV, listen to music, or have fun with your tablet as the bicycle will not make any annoying noise.
Its 35 lbs flywheel makes this spin bike more stable when pedaling, ensures a smooth workout experience, and helps intensively work your legs and gain muscle mass.
This entry-level spin bike moves in conjunction with its pedals thanks to its flywheel design and internal chain. It provides two pedaling directions, meaning that you can pedal in reverse to vary your exercise movements and stimulate your leg muscle deeper.
The flywheel does not need a lot of maintenance since its cover is made of scratch-resistant material. You only need to clean its exterior with a towel to avoid dust accumulation.
This durable spin bike features a magnetic resistance system that works by friction, connected to the tension dial located on its structure’s main tube obliquely. When the dial is turned to the right, the friction increases, and you will feel it when pedaling.
The resistance can be of such difficulty that you will feel almost impossible to pedal. This pressure can be felt in your muscles.
On the other hand, this tension dial also functions as a brake in case of an emergency. You can press it to make the flywheel stop. And this tension dial can be replaced when the original one wears out due to its continued use.
Besides, you will need to lubricate it to prevent it from making noises.
The JOROTO X1S bike is equipped with a chain drive system of high durability. With proper lubrication, its chain will last for many years, even for life.
However, if, over time, you notice that when you exercise, it slows down, you can have other chains to replace the old one easily since it is a chain of a common spin bike.
This spin bike allows you to work out both your upper and lower body safely, with the assistance of its wide and comfortable seat. People of different heights can adjust the cushioned 4-way adjustable seat easily.
You will notice the height adjustment positions in the vertical bar below the seat, where you can adjust it to the desired height.
The seat will also allow you to move it horizontally so that your knees won’t bother you if you are tall, and the handlebars won’t be too far if you are shorter.
You can enjoy your training without interruptions because the seat is made with cushioning and covered with leather, which gives extra comfort and support while working out. Its comfort is also due to its curved surface.
The seat is made of an anti-breathable and hypoallergenic material and can be replaced easily if it is broken. You will find many compatible seats.
Joroto X1S spin bike comes with a 1-year warranty on its parts.
Assembly & Maintenance
The main structure of this spin bike is pre-assembled, i. e., the flywheel, the resistance system, and the chain. You only have to put the pedals, the seat, the console, and the base’s stabilizers together.
You will be able to complete this task in about 30 minutes with the assistance of its user-friendly instruction manual, which provides you with step-by-step details with graphics for your better understanding.
Also, you will get the necessary tools to finish assembling your bike easily.
As for its maintenance, it is recommended to lubricate the chain at least once every two or three months, and you can use the lubricant used on your regular bike for this.
It would help if you also wiped the tubes and the seat with a clean towel, at least once a week. If more than one person uses this bike, you should clean it after each workout and check if the screws are secure.
