Nautilus has been a constant in the fitness industry for as long as I’ve been alive, and they’ve announced a new indoor cycle with a first of its kind feature with the Bowflex VeloCore.
Connected fitness bikes such as Peloton and Echelon have kept the same style as all other indoor bikes: you pedal sitting straight up. For the first time, the Bowflex VeloCore will add an option for leaning while riding.
“Quite simply, the VeloCore bike represents a totally new way to cycle at home by offering a fully customizable experience. The bike is loaded with advanced technology and digital options to keep users motivated, engaged and entertained. Our lean technology dials up the fun factor and workout payback”Jim Barr, CEO of Nautilus, Inc
When activating the lean mode, Bowflex VeloCore riders can push the bike from side-to-side, simulating the movement of outdoor cycling.
Users with a JRNY membership will get 75 trainer-led cycling and workouts with real-time feedback and tracking.
The Bowflex VeloCore bikes can be purchased $2,199 for the 22” console and $1,699 for the 16” console at Bowflex.com.
Our Take on Bowflex VeloCore
The leaning functionality is a fantastic idea that I had not considered before. While their course catalog seems much smaller than Peloton or Echelon. JRNY members also have the ability to watch streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu on the console’s screen while riding. Depending on the fitness experience you’re after, this product might be a perfect fit for you.
