This overall score consists of performance (50%) and ease of use (50%).

Performance score View more details.

To score performance we recruited the expert opinion of Dr Lee K Wallace, high level triathlete and sport and exercise science lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney. He looked at the bikes’ build quality and sturdiness, seat comfort, smoothness of action and the ease of resistance adjustment and program levels.

Ease of use score View more details.

Our expert Antonio Bonacruz assessed which bikes were easiest to assemble, adjust and program. He also adapted several clauses of the exercise cycle safety requirements standard (AS 4092-1993) and checked for the guarding of moving parts and sharp edges, as well as user instructions.
