Joroto XM30 Indoor Cycling Bike Review
The Joroto XM30 indoor cycling bike is a cheaper alternative for the novice as well as pro cyclists who can’t afford to spend more than $500 on a spin bike for indoor cycling workouts.
Model XM30 Joroto belt drive spin bike is the fifth cycle by Joroto and was released in the market around the end of July 2019. I mentioned that so you know why there aren’t many consumer reviews and ratings regarding this high-quality Joroto exercise bike.
The bike features magnetic resistance which means no-maintenance or annoying noise. It can be adjusted manually via dial for both, high-intensity workouts and high-cadence exercise. The adjustment knob is located in an ergonomically correct position so it is easy to reach.
Additionally, this Joroto XM30 exercise is equipped with a belt drive system which is much better (quieter and less maintenance) than chain spin bikes. And if that’s not enough, the Joroto XM30 spin bike has a fully adjustable easy to use handlebars with multiple grip areas for you to vary your workout position.
In terms of durability, the Joroto bike is made of a thickened steel frame, widened front and rear stabilizers, double load-bearing beam at the bottom, and external protective covers at both sides that provide this indoor cycling bike a sturdy and stable body and up to 300 pounds weight capacity to fit for most people.
Thanks to the 30-pound flywheel and heavy frame, the XM30 Joroto bike is extremely stable and will not easily shake or wobble. The bike will also maintain this stability during high-intensity spinning workouts. There are also feet levelers attached to the base of the bike to ensure that the bike won’t rock while working out.
As far as the console and accessories are concerned, the JOROTO XM30 indoor cycle includes a very basic console. It is not backlit and doesn’t track the RPM. JOROTO XM30 console will allow you to track the speed, distance, calories burned, and time, to ensure that you know how far you have progressed.
Before we get into an in-depth JOROTO XM30 Indoor Exercise Bike review, it is worth mentioning this bike has a 1-year warranty which is good. And it can accommodate the people from 29.5″ to 38.2″ inseam height. This may be a setback for short people below 5ft.
In terms of pricing, this Joroto exercise bike is actually quite reasonably priced and will not cost you a fortune. The bike also includes a bottle holder, a phone holder, and a tablet holder.
In addition to the JOROTO belt-driven indoor cycle, this brand currently has at least 4 other models of spin bikes. Some of the JOROTO indoor cycling bikes include the Joroto X2 magnetic cycle, X3, X5, and X1S. If you are interested to see their differences, I suggest you search this website and read my Joroto indoor cycle bikes reviews and comparison.

The thickened triangled 112 pounds frame, dual load-bearing tubes, and wide stabilizer feet, plus the weight of the rider help this indoor cycling bike provide a rock-solid workout. The Joroto Fitness XM30 magnetic spin bike designed for spinning with durable construction that can support all types of spinning workouts.
There are 4 horizontal adjustment knobs under the front and rear stabilizer to keep the bike stable on different surfaces, so the bike can always provide you safe riding even if your home gym floor is not leveled. Additionally, the Joroto magnetic XM30 exercise bike features a durable powder coating which is rust and scratch-resistant.
For relocating the bike after each spinning workout, the front base is equipped with two large durable transport wheel wheels. As for dimensions, compared to Jorot X3, this model has a slightly larger footprint which gives the bike the ability to accommodate taller users.
Joroto Fitness Bike Computer:
- Joroto Fitness magnetic bike includes a very basic fitness meter.
- XM30 Joroto bike allows the rider to track the time, speed, distance, scan, and calories burned.
- This Joroto spin bike does not track the RPM and the watts.
- It has no wireless connectivity (Bluetooth or ANT/+).
- It runs on batteries and does not have backlit.
- XM30 Joroto exercise bike comes with a tablet holder and a phone holder.
The computer included with this JOROTO spin bike, displays your time, speed, scan, distance, and calories burned. Unfortunately, it lacks in chest strap connectivity and built-in pulse sensors on the handlebars. So, you can’t track your heart rate on the monitor. Overall, it enables you to see some basic workout progress and stay motivated and on pace.
It is not a high-tech computer which is common for the price point, it would have been much better if it featured a backlit and RPM reading capability.
With this monitor, you can’t save stats or ride on cycling apps online. And since it lacks in backlit, you will need to keep the light on in low-light condition if you want to see your workout progress.
Thankfully the Joroto MX30 belt-driven cycling bike comes with two media shelves. One serves as a tablet holder while the other one can safely holde your phone to allow you to watch spinning videos/classes or watch movies and stay entertained.
If you want to track your workouts and join spinning apps such as Zwift for a more exciting ride, I suggest you buy a Wahoo sensor. It attaches to the pedal and tracks your RPM (revolution per minute) time, distance, and more. Using Bluetooth, it connects and sends data to your phone or tablet.
Search our website for “bike computer and Wahoos sensors” to understand all your options for this magnetic exercise bike. Using the Wahoo app on your device (phone, tablet, etc) you can also track and save your everyday progress.
Pedals and Q-factor:
- JOROTO XM30 magnetic indoor cycling bike features adjustable caged foot pedals.
- They are not clipless SPD cycling shoes compatible.
- XM30 bike has the standard 9/16″ pedal thread so the spd replacements are available widely.
- The q-factor is not disclosed.
JOROTO XM30 magnetic bike has durable steel toe-caged pedals. They are designed with adjustable straps and buckle to fit different size feet and keep them in place safely during intense spinning exercise.
Thankfully the thread of the pedal is standard which means they have the 9/16″ thread size. Therefore, you can replace them with regular SPD pedals widely available on the market.
SPD compatible pedals cost around $40 allowing to ride the bike with clip-in cycling shoes for a safe and comfortable ride. Lastly the q-factor, JOROTO Fitness hasn’t disclosed the q-factor information for this bike and we are waiting for the confirmation from the company.
In case you are new to cycling, the q-factor is the distance between the pedals. The narrower it is, the better it is because it can keep your feet aligned with your knees and hips and minimize stress on these joints.
The Q-factor between 160 mm to 190 mm is highly recommended at they can help to position your feet naturally on the pedals, which results in a healthy pedaling motion with zero lateral stress on the knees and ankles.
XM30 Joroto Flywheel:
- Joroto Fitness XM30 indoor cycling bike flywheel weighs 30 pounds to deliver a close to the natural ride.
- The flywheel is fixed and bidirectional.
- It is chromed which gives it a good look and makes it easy to clean.
This flywheel is considered good, weighing 30 pounds, designed for a more natural ride and consistent momentum. It’s fixed and bi-directional, which means you can pedal in reverse.
The benefit of fixed-wheel (fixed-gear) is that you can double the number of workouts and by pedaling reverse simulate different muscle groups. A disadvantage of fixed-gear is that you can not take a two-second break or immediately dismount the bike in case of an emergency until the flywheel stops turning.
The fixed-flywheel is connected with the pedals, so you will have to wait until the flywheel and pedals stop before you can get off the bike. There are a few indoor cycling bikes with smart release (free-wheel) system. But they cost more than $1000.
Overall the Joroto exercise bike XM30 produces a smooth pedaling experience thanks to the combination of the magnetic system, belt and heavy flywheel resulting in extra stability and smoothness for the pedaling motion.
Magnetic XM30 Resistance:
- Joroto indoor exercise bike stationary has magnetic resistance to provide a smooth responsive ride.
- There are seven strong magnets for high cadence and high-intensity spinning exercise.
- Resistance is manually adjustable using a knob.
- It also has the emergency push to stop function.
The main selling factor of this JOROTO indoor cycle bike is its silent magnetic resistance system. This indoor cycling bike trainer with magnetic resistance and belt drive is perfect for home cardio exercise.
Here is what you need to know about this model! Despite the fact that the flywheel is lighter compared to a few other bikes that you can see in this best spin bike reviews, the Joroto XM30 is capable of providing a high-speed workout as well as high-intensity challenging workouts, thanks to its high-quality powerful magnets.
Just like I mentioned earlier in this Joroto indoor exercise bike XM30 review, this indoor cycling bike is equipped with a manual magnetic resistance system. So, the resistance adjusts manually via a knob (not electronically). Therefore, you don’t need electricity to be able to use the bike.
In addition to quiet operation, the JOROTO magnetic XM30 exercise bike resistance is also virtually maintenance-free. Unlike bikes with friction resistance, the resistance does not wear out and you won’t have to go through the hassle of changing the brake pad like you would for friction bikes.
Unfortunately, the resistance knob doesn’t have levels specified on it. Therefore, you wouldn’t know the exact level or your previous level. But after a while of riding this bike, you will better understand how much turning the knob generates the resistance adequate to your training.
Lastly, the resistance also serves as an emergency brake; by pressing it down you can immediately stop the flywheel, which may be necessary in case of emergency or if you want to alternate normal with reverse pedaling sessions.
- Joroto XM30 features a belt-drive design for a quiet and smooth workout.
- This bike has the fixed-gear single belt direct drive mechanism.
- XM30 Joroto Fitness cycling bike features press down roller adjustment which is much better than the Fixed axis system.
In addition to the magnetic system, one of the aspects that I like about XM30 Joroto indoor cycle bike is the belt drive. In fact, it is the combination of the belt with magnetic resistance that makes this cycle stand out from the crowd.
Featuring a heavy-duty belt drivetrain comes with several advantages. For example, it doesn’t require lubing so you wouldn’t have to deal with the mess that oil could make on your floor.
The other benefits include low-maintenance because the belt is one piece unlike chain with 100+ little pieces. And last but not least, the belt does not generate as much vibration as the chain does, therefore, it is extremely quiet and smooth.
Joroto cycling bike with blet-drive and magnetic resistance is made for indoor cycling workout for all fitness levels therefore, it has durable and solid crank arms. It can support the rider in all cycling positions include off the seat full-body high-intensity workouts. Both features provide the user with a nearly silent workout, so you will never disturb someone in the other who is sleeping or watching TV.
Handlebars and seat:
- The handlebars are 4-way adjustable for a perfect bike fit and comfortable ride.
- Handlebars are equipped with skid-proof, sweat-absorbing materials.
- They all time-trial grip, hook grip, and extension grip
- There are 7 levels of adjustments in height.
- The seat is also 4-way adjustable with safety holes on the vertical post for a comfortable safe ride.
- It is a well-padded wide leather seat designed for comfort.
- Seat size is; 10.6 L” 8.3 W” 4.3 H”
The handlebars are 4-way adjustable for a perfect bike setting and to provide a safe and comfortable ride for all your family members. There are two large device holders that make it easy for you to have the tablet and the phone on the bike watching a Netflix movie or spinning video on YouTube for a more engaging and efficient workout.
The seat provided with the JOROTO belt drive with magnetic resistance is well padded and more comfortable than many other spin bikes in this price class. It is a relatively wide leather seat which is nice for regular rides and users with wider hips.
But if you have really narrow hips and weigh less than average, you may want to consider replacing the seat with narrower seat for less friction and chafing. I suggest you not to buy the bike seat already, ride the bike to see how it feels. Then you can decide if it is required.
The seat has layers of soft padding and has two springs at the rear that considerably improve its overall cushioning and comfort. As for adjustment, the JOROTO XM30 indoor cycle bike seat can be adjusted to fit inseams from 29.5″ to 38.2″
Instead of regular dents, its vertical post has several adjustment holes that keep the seat tightly in place and prevent shaking or going down.
Featuring a multi-grip urethane dipped handlebar design, your workout remains comfortable when riding for long periods of time. The aero bar adds several grip possibilities and allows you to change arm positions to engage different upper muscles and prevent wrist and arm aches and fatigue.
