Joroto X4S Review: Good quality and value for money
When I made the decision to purchase the Joroto X4S indoor bike for this review, I was looking for a high-value option that is worth spending days writing about it. Although it’s a newer brand compared to well-established names like Schwinn or Echelon, I was pleasantly surprised by the range of impressive features and benefits it offered, making it a strong contender among indoor bikes priced under $1000.
One feature that really stood out to me was the Bluetooth FTMS connectivity of the Joroto X4 bike. This allowed me to easily connect with popular indoor cycling apps like Zwift, Kinomap, and Peloton, both online and offline. To enhance my overall experience, I took the initiative to reach out to the QZ app developer and requested the addition of Joroto X4 compatibility.
With this integration, the QZ app acted as a bridge between the bike and my heart rate monitor, enabling the transmission of valuable data such as power, RPM, heart rate, and speed to Zwift. Thanks to the QZ app, I was able to connect to Zwift with all the metrics I needed, even including estimations for those that were not provided by the bike itself.
It’s important to note that in order to connect to online cycling apps, I had to use a Bluetooth-enabled device like a tablet or phone since the bike’s console was quite basic. The console, which ran on AAA batteries, displayed essential information such as speed, time, resistance levels, distance, calories, and cadence. However, it did lack the capability to display an accurate watt output. Fortunately, the QZ app came to the rescue, providing estimations based on my RPM and heart rate.
One of the standout aspects of the Joroto X4 indoor bike was its 35-pound fixed flywheel. This heavy flywheel ensured a smooth and stable ride with challenging resistance and momentum. However, it’s worth mentioning that the Joroto X4 utilized a poly v belt instead of the more durable carbon belt found on higher-end bikes like Stages. Additionally, the bearings were manufactured in China, indicating that they may require more maintenance in the long run. While these factors are common among spin bikes with heavy flywheels, it’s worth considering the trade-offs when compared to the more expensive Stages indoor bikes.
Another important consideration was that the Joroto X4’s heavy flywheel required more strength to start pedaling, even without resistance from the magnets. This might not be ideal for senior riders or individuals with weaker knees who are accustomed to lighter flywheels, such as those found on bikes like the Keiser M3i.
One aspect that left me slightly disappointed was the Joroto X4’s toe-caged pedals, which lacked SPD elements for clip-in cycling shoes. However, I found a solution by replacing the pedals with 9/16 clip-in dual-sided pedals, allowing me to enjoy the benefits of clip-in shoes for a more secure and efficient pedaling experience. Before we dive any further into this Joroto X4s review, let’s take a look at how it was evolved from previous Joroto models.
How Joroto X4S evolved from previous models
|JOROTO X4S||3x4-inch backlit | Bluetooth, RPM, speed, resistance/load, heart rate, distance, time, and calories||Belt-Drive|
|29.5″ to 39″||330-Pound||35-Lb (with sweat protection guard)||4-Way|
|JOROTO X3||2.5x2.5-inch no backlit | Speed, heart rate, distance, time, and calories||Belt-Drive|
|27.9″ to 36″||300-Pound||45-Lb (with sweat protection guard)||4-Way|
|JOROTO X2Pro||2x3-inch no backlit | Bluetooth, RPM, speed, resistance/load, heart rate, distance, time, and calories||Belt-Drive|
|27.5″ to 36.2″||300-Pound||35-Lb (with sweat protection guard)||4-Way|
|JOROTO X2||2x2-inch no backlit | Speed, heart rate, distance, time, and calories||Belt-Drive|
|27.5″ to 36.2″||280-Pound||35-Lb (NO sweat protection guard)||4-Way|
|JOROTO X1||2x2-inch no backlit | Speed, heart rate, distance, time, and calories||Chain-Drive|
|25.6″ to 35.4″||280-Pound||35-Lb (NO sweat protection guard)||2-Way|
When considering the range of Joroto exercise bikes, including the X1, X2, X2Pro, and X4S models, it’s essential to understand their similarities and differences. Let’s compare these indoor cycling bikes to help you make an informed decision based on your preferences and requirements.
In terms of console features, the X1, X2, X2Pro, and X4S all provide important metrics such as speed, heart rate, distance, time, and calories. Although non of them have backlit display, they allows you to track your performance and progress during workouts. But the X4s and X2Pro are the only ones that give your rpm and resistance level. They are also the only Joroto indoor bikes with Bluetooth and app connectivity.
When it comes to the drive system, the X1 utilizes a chain-drive mechanism, while the X2, X2Pro, and X4S use a belt-drive system. The belt-drive design offers a smoother and quieter operation, requiring less maintenance compared to chain drives. On the other hand the chain system is more similar to road bike and does a better job at transferring your watt output to the flywheel.
The resistance system also differs among the models. The X1 employs a friction resistance system, which requires occasional adjustment, lubrication, and even replacement while the X2, X2Pro, and X4S feature a magnetic resistance system. They are not motorised magnetic like Echelon indoor bikes are, but overall magnetic resistance even if its manual provides smoother transitions between resistance levels and requires minimal maintenance compared to friction resistance.
In terms of adjustability, the X1 offers handlebars that can be adjusted only vertically, while the X2, X2Pro, and X4S allow adjustments in four directions (fore/aft and up/down). The increased adjustability of the latter models allows for better customization to suit individual body proportions and riding preferences.
Weight capacities vary across the models as well. The X1 and X2 can accommodate users up to 280 pounds, while the X2Pro and X4S have higher weight capacities of 300 pounds and 330 pounds, respectively. Choosing a bike with a suitable weight capacity ensures stability and durability during workouts.
When it comes to flywheel weight, all models share a 35-pound flywheel, providing a smooth and consistent riding experience. However, the X4S has an improved flywheel design with dual-sided magnets for more precise performance and better pedal strokes.
Additional features also vary between the models. The X2Pro and X4S offer Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to connect with apps like Zwift and Kinomap for interactive riding experiences. The X4S further enhances its features with a larger display unit, dual bottle holders, and a dumbbell holder for added convenience during workouts.
In terms of pricing, the X1 is the most budget-friendly option at $300, followed by the X2 at $350, X2Pro at $450, and X4S at $550 in ascending order.
Ultimately, choosing the right Joroto indoor cycling bike depends on your specific budget, preferences and needs. If you prioritize a smoother and quieter ride, as well as a more advanced flywheel design, the Joroto X4S is the most ideal choice.
However, if budget is a significant factor, the X2Pro provides a more cost-effective option without compromising essential features. Make sure to check out the comparison tablet I created for Joroto indoor cycling bike and consider your desired features, adjustability, resistance system, and additional functionalities to select the Joroto exercise bike that aligns best with your indoor cycling goals.
Joroto X4S Comparable Alternatives
When considering alternatives to the Joroto X4S, there are a couple of comparable indoor cycling bike worth mentioning. For those willing to invest a bit more, the Echelon EX3 is a great option. While it lacks a built-in display like the one that comes with the Joroto X4S, it offers a motorized magnetic resistance system that automatically adjusts resistance when connected to apps like Zwift and Peloton. The EX3 also features an adjustable tablet holder, providing a better viewing angle compared to the X4S’s fixed holder that requires looking downward. Additionally, the EX3’s dual-sided pedals accommodate both SPD cycling shoes and regular gym shoes, offering more versatility compared to the X4S’s cage pedals.
On the other hand, if budget is a key consideration, the Niceday indoor bike is a solid choice. It comes at a $100 lower price point than the X4S and features dual-sided SPD and cage pedals, which is an improvement over the X4S’s single-sided cage pedals. The Niceday bike also has an angle-adjustable console, providing a better screen viewing angle compared to the X4S’s fixed console. The only drawback is that the Niceday’s console is darker without backlit and doesn’t provide resistance levels. However, if these factors are not crucial to your needs, the Niceday exercise bike offers a more affordable yet comparable alternative to the X4S.
I would personally buy the Echelon EX3 because it’s sturdier, has a better resistance system, and works seamlessly with Kinomap, Zwift, Peloton, and other spinning bike apps. But ultimately, the choice between these alternatives depends on your specific preferences and requirements. If automatic resistance adjustment and dual-sided pedals are essential features for you, the Echelon EX3 is totally worth the hundred dollar additional investment.
On the other hand, if cost-effectiveness and versatile pedal options are more important, the Niceday indoor bike provides a solid alternative to the X4S. To be completely honest, Nicety’s overall quality, handlebars and flat elbow rests are superior to Joroto x4s’s. Consider your budget, desired features, and specific circumstances to make an informed decision that suits your indoor cycling needs.

I have to say, the build quality of this bike is seriously impressive. From the moment I unpacked it, I could tell that JOROTO didn’t cut any corners. The heavy-duty steel frame and robust components give it a sturdy feel, and I never had to worry about any wobbling or instability, even during my most intense workouts. It’s clear that this bike was designed to last.
One of the things that drew me to the X4S was its versatility for home use. I wanted a bike that could handle the demands of multiple family members, and this bike fit the bill perfectly. With its durable construction and the ability to withstand up to 2 hours of daily use, I knew it could handle whatever we threw at it. So, whether it is you, you spouse, or even your teenage kids, you could all get a great workout on the Joroto X4S.
Now, I have to admit, the X4S is not the most compact bike out there. It’s a bit bulkier and heavier compared to some other models like Keiser M3i. But let me tell you, that extra size and weight are worth it. The bike feels incredibly stable, and I never experienced any rocking or instability issues. Even when I get out of the saddle and really pushed myself during intense workouts, the Joroto X4S remained rock solid. And when it came time to move it around the house, the durable frame made it surprisingly easy. I was able to handle it on my own without any trouble. It’s definitely more manageable than some of the heavier bikes like NordicTrack S22i that I’ve come across.
One feature that I absolutely love about the X4S is the 4 adjustable foot levelers. These little details make a big difference. They not only protect my floors but also ensure a stable and secure workout experience, even where the floor is a bit uneven on surfaces. I found that the bike stayed in place no matter how intense my workout got. And let me tell you, that’s a huge relief. I’ve had experiences with some other budget exercise bikes where I felt like I was constantly readjusting and worrying about the bike slipping. But with the X4S, I can focus entirely on my workout without any distractions. Just make sure to add a floor mat under the bike if you have slippery floors.
And let’s talk about the adjustability of this bike. The adjustable inseam capacity is a game-changer. It can accommodate a wide range of users, which is something I really appreciate. But I have to mention that there is another bike in this price range, the Niceday bike, that offers even more adjustability, accommodating heights from 4’7″ to 6.7″. So, if you have specific height requirements that Joroto X4s doesn’t meet, you might want to consider that option as well.
All in all, in terms of stability and durability my experience with the JOROTO X4S has been fantastic. This bike is built to last, and it delivers a stable and secure workout every time. Whether you’re looking for a bike for your home or even a light commercial setting, the X4S is a solid choice.
Joroto X4s Bike Monitor:
- Joroto X4s monitor displays the cadence, time, calories, heart rate, speed, load/resistance, and distance.
- The monitor is 4″x3″ big and it is backlit so it’s easier to see stats in the dark but to turn on the backlit you need to push one of the buttons on the screen to wake it up.
- No pulse sensors but it’s compatible with Bluetooth wireless HR straps to read heart rate data on the display.
- This indoor bike is not equipped with watt tracking or preset workouts but it has Bluetooth connectivity.
- Joroto X4s can connect to Peloton, Zwift, QZ, and Kinomap indoor cycling applications for virtual cycling workouts.
- This workout data monitor is powered by 2 AAA batteries, and to save energy it automatically goes on dim-light during the ride and shuts off after a few minutes of inactivity.
Before I tell you the cons of Joroto X4s bike computer, you need to keep in mind that many indoor cycling bikes in this price point, don’t even come with a monitor to start with. But thankfully, the Joroto X4s indoor bike does include a monitor.
The X4s console is compatible with wireless heart rate chest straps. So, if you want to stay within certain heart rate training zones as you workout, you will need to buy an HR reader wristwatch or a Bluetooth chest strap to connect with the bike’s display or to the application of your choice on your phone/tablet.
The X4s monitor is also backlit which makes it easier to see and track your spinning workout stats in the low-light condition. Considering that it runs on AAA batteries, they made a good decision to keep the screen on dim light during the ride until you push a button which turns the backlit on. It saves lots of batteries.
Unfortunately, the monitor communicates with the speed sensor via wire (not wirelessly) but thankfully the wire runs along the frame in a ways that doesn’t cut or break to create extra maintenance and it’s pretty hidden so it doesn’t look bad.
While this Joroto X4s spin bike tracks many important cycling feedbacks, it does not track your watt output and it doesn’t have internal memory so in order for you to save your daily progress is to connect the bike to one of the compatible cycling apps. Thankfully it has Bluetooth connectivity and works with all the major apps including Zwift, Peloton, Kinomap, and QZ.
There is also a media tray that you can place your tablet or phone but it’s not angle adjustable so when you place your tablet on the bike, you need to keep your head down which is not really a natural viewing angle.
Pedals and Q-factor:
- Joroto X4S spin bike has single-sided toe cage pedals (no SPD elements).
- This bike has the standard 9/16″ pedals thread size and replacements are widely available.
- It has a 3-piece crank arms and the pedal straps are adjustable for a safer exercise.
- The X4s Q-factor is 195MM which is better than rivals like Niceday bike.
Joroto X4S cycling exercise bike features thick and solid crank arms and toe cage pedals. I weigh 170 lbs and rode the bike with high resistance and out of the saddle and it performed great without getting noisy. But unfortunately, the pedals are not SPD compatible which means if you want to use cycling shoes, you need to replace the pedals.
Thankfully, the Joroto Fitness indoor cycle has the standard 9/16″ pedal thread size. So, you can replace the pedals with pretty much any clip-in dual-sided spin bike pedals that are on the market.
The Q-factor, one of the most important features when buying indoor cycling bikes is proudly disclosed and it is 195mm which is considered ergonomic and really good compared to many other magnetic exercise bikes under $1000.
In case you are new to indoor cycling, the q factor is the horizontal distance between the two pedals. Wide q factors tend to keep riders’ feet too far apart which can cause injuries if you have narrow hips.
Joroto X4S Exercise Bike Flywheel:
- Joroto Fitness X4s flywheel weighs 35 pounds.
- The flywheel and the resistance system have a sweat protection guard.
- This Joroto bike has a fixed-wheel system which makes it bidirectional.
- The flywheel of the bike is no shrouded which makes is less safe for households with kids.
I don’t want to scare you but if you have kids or toddlers and you don’t have a specific home gyms where you can lock the door, it’s important to keep them away from the bike because it’s flywheel is not shrouded (covered). It has sharp edges that can really hurt you child if they run and fall on the bike. If that’s your situation, maybe an Echelon EX15 would fit you better because its flywheel is fully hidden and covered.
Now, the X4 indoor bike flywheel is well built with its weight at 35 pounds. It’s precise and smooth. This heavy-duty 35-pound flywheel provides a smooth ride with a large range of challenges to meet the needs of most riders. Although it’s a great feature of this bike but 35-lb may not be the best choice for seniors and those with bad knees. If you fall in that category, you should probably get an indoor cycling bike with a lighter flywheel like Keiser M3i or Echelon EX15 (Echelon Sport Connect).
Just like any other budget indoor cycling exercise bike, the X4 Joroto indoor cycling bike is fixed-wheel (fixe-gear). Meaning the flywheel moves and stops with the pedals which has an advantage and disadvantage.
Fixed-gear (bidirectional) flywheel advantage is that you can pedal forward and reverse with resistance and engage different leg muscle groups. The disadvantage is that you can not take a break or immediately jump off the bike until the flywheel stops spinning.
Free-wheel indoor bikes like Life Fitness IC8 are way more expensive. They work similarly to road bicycles. Meaning even after you stop pedaling, the flywheel still turns. So, you can jump off the bike in case of an emergency or take a short break whenever you want, without having to wait for the flywheel to completely stop.
Joroto Fitness X4S Resistance System:
- JOROTO X4s bike has a manually adjustable magnetic resistance system.
- There are 0% to 100% (100 levels) of resistance and current level is constantly provided on the bike’s console.
- This Joroto stationary exercise bike features knob adjustment rather than buttons or shifters.
- X4’s resistance knob also functions as an emergency brake when you push it down.
The X4s stationary exercise bike from Joroto Fitness has a wide range of magnetic resistance system. You can manually adjust it by twisting the knob clockwise and counterclockwise and it’s pretty quiet. It’s not my favourite way of adjusting as I am used to gear shifters but for now most indoor bikes still have knobs for changing resistance. There are a few smart indoor bikes like Tacx Neo and Wattbike that have handlebar based gear shifter but they are way more expensive than Joroto X4s.
Unlike automatic magnetic indoor bikes that can change automatically based on the terrain, heart rate, and programs, you need to manually adjust the resistance on the X4s because it doesn’t have an electronic motor attached to its resistance. I know for many people who like to connect to Zwift and Peloton, it’s an important feature which is why for those people I recommended the Echelon EX3 as an alternative to Joroto X4s.
The important is when buying Joroto X4s indoor cycling bike, you don’t need to worry about maintenance or annoying nose because its magnets never wear out and don’t need oiling or cleanings. I know it’s not as advanced as motorised magnetic resistance, but manual magnetic is still a much better system than friction resistance. There is also a small protection guard above the resistance to make sure the flywheel, bearings, and magnets remains dry and clean. Overall, it is consistent, durable and very quiet.
Joroto X4s’s Drive System:
- Joroto X4S cycling exercise bike has a poly-v grooved belt transmission which is quiet and requires little maintenance.
- X4″ bike features press down rollers for belt adjustment which makes the ride smooth and low-maintenance.
- X4 Joroto spin bike is equipped with a high-quality belt box to minimize noise and maintenance.
If you have been reading this X4 Joroto indoor cycling bike review, you already know this spin bike is belt-driven. But let’s see why belt is better than chain drive indoor bikes.
Belt system doesn’t have hundreds of tiny rings and pieces like a chain do. Therefore, it breaks harder and lasts longer. But that is not the only benefit of belt-driven spin bikes.
Featuring belt makes the bike quieter and eliminates the need for oiling. And if the belt is high quality and combined with the press down rollers, like the one on the X4s bike, it doesn’t stretch. So, you don’t need to deal with adjustment tools every week.
On top of that, the Joroto spin bike X4s comes with an ergonomically designed high-quality belt box that provides better protection during riding and sound-proof effect. Which makes it more suitable for at-home and apartment use.
X4s’ Handlebars and Seat:
- X4 indoor bike seat and handlebar are horizontally and vertically adjustable.
- Handlebars don’t have elbow rest or drop grips but there are aero bars and they are dipped.
- The seat is 6.5″ wide and 10.2″ long and it has 1.5″ foam cushion with a breathable groove.
- It has the standard seat clamp size so the replacements are available widely.
- This bike also features cam and lever locking mechanism for horizontal adjustable which is better than the knob system.
- For vertical adjustment, there are safety holes which is better and safer than regular dents.
- There are two removable bottle holders and a media tray that attache to the front of the handlebars.
- A dumbbell stand comes with the bike and installs at the back of the seat rail but no dumbbells included.
Designed for optimal spin bike setup, the Joroto X4s indoor cycling stationary exercise bike features an adjustable seat and handlebars that move forward and backward as well as upward and downward so most users can acquire a safe custom fit.
And the full adjustment is the main reason this Joroto X4 s stationary exercise bike can accommodate users from 4’9″ to 6’4″ height. There are also water bottle holders on the handlebars and a media tray that fit all sizes of phone and tablets. So, can reach your water or snacks conveniently without getting out of the bike and stay hydrated during the exercise.
The only problem I had with this bottle holder that I didn’t have with Peloton bike or Niceday bike was that when I placed my tablet on the tray, I couldn’t easily take the bottle anymore because the tray is built on top of the bottle holders.
Featuring the cam and lever locking system is relatively easier to adjust compared to the knob adjustment system. They also tighten nicely, so you don’t need to worry about the bike jostling during your indoor cycling workout.
The only problem as far as the handlebar design goes is the lack of elbow rests and drop grips for those who do racing style rides but most don’t do that on indoor bikes so it should be a problem if you are a starter and ride mainly in upright and tilting postures.
The seat is soft and breathable with a groove but it doesn’t have a cut to allow decent airflow or reduce prostate pressure. It’s also a little smaller than some other magnetic exercise bikes I tried. I suggest you don’t change the seat immediately and try the bike for a week or two and see how it feels. Also make sure to wear the right indoor cycling including padded shorts as those really helped me get ride of saddle pain.
There is also a steel dumbbell holder in the box of the bike that you can attack to the back of the seat rail which is similar to Peloton bike. But there is no dumbbell came with the bike so I used a pair of Peloton dumbbells instead.
Joroto X4S Price and Warranty:
- JOROTO X4s price is around $590 and its residential warranty includes:
- 1-year on all parts and frame without labour warranty.
- To order parts under warranty, you can contact the seller through email@example.com.

- Parts to be assembled are: Stabilisers, pedals, seat, handlebars, tray, and display.
- Expert assembly is available to order on Amazon but not included.
The Joroto X4s exercise bike comes with free shipping and in one big heavy box. Therefore, I suggest you ask the carrier to help bring the bike inside or unbox the bike outside and bring inside in smaller pieces which is what I did because I needed to assemble it upstairs.
Aside from the bike and all its parts, there are the Joroto X4 assembly tools and manuals in the box. So, you wouldn’t need to buy, borrow or use other tools for assembly of Joroto X4s spin bike.
The X4 stationary exercise bike comes about 70% assembled, which is great in many ways. The remaining assembly is relatively straight-forward but still might take you about an hour.
Assembly manual is very easy to follow as long as you pay attention to detail and have little mechanical common sense. I did it with the help of a friend and I recommend to do the assembly with 2 people, at least for the front and rear stabilisers.

- Fixed media shelf: The media shelf cannot be adjusted, which means you may need to place your tablet on the handlebars and look down to view your stats, which is not an ideal riding posture.
- Discover the Joroto X4S exercise bike, offering customization, a smooth ride, readable resistance, sweat protection, and more. While it may lack SPD pedals and automatic resistance, its positive consumer reviews, quality components, and convenient features make it a reliable choice for your indoor cycling needs.
When considering the purchase of the Joroto X4s exercise bike, the ultimate deciding factor is often budget. If you’re looking for a bike that can withstand heavy usage from multiple household members and you’re willing to invest in a long-term, reliable option, the Keiser M3i would be a great choice. Its durability and performance make it a trustworthy investment.
However, if your budget falls within the range of under six or seven hundred dollars and the bike will primarily be used by one or two individuals, the Joroto X4s indoor cycling bike is a fantastic option. This bike is specifically designed for indoor cycling enthusiasts who are conscious of their budget but still expect a high-quality experience.
