What We Love About the IRONMAN H-Class 520:
The IRONMAN H-Class 520 is equipped with a nice computer. First, it telemetry enabled and with the included My Fitness Cloud chest strap, you can monitor your heart rate hands-free. There aren’t too many indoor bikes that throw in a free chest strap, so that’s a nice bonus. A couple of other nice features with this computer are the Bluetooth capability and the free app that can be used to download and track your exercise data. We always like the ability to track workout statistics because it’s a great motivator to keep you going.
Quality & Warranty
The IRONMAN H-Class 520 is a strong and durable cycle and lives up to the brand. It has a strong steel frame that is laboratory tested for durability, performance and endurance. With its 44 lb flywheel, this indoor bike has a total weight of 136 lbs, which is sure to keep it grounded during your most intense workouts. IRONMAN also backs this design with a lifetime frame warranty, which is one of the best warranties we’ve found for indoor exercise bikes. The IRONMAN H-Class 520 also has great components like the 3-piece crank system and steel pedals that accommodate stand up pedaling and everything else you throw at it.
What Isn’t So Great:
First of all, we’re going to tell you that finding something to hate about the IRONMAN H-Class 520 is nearly impossible. We’re really reaching here. This bike comes with fully adjustable seat and handlebars. They can be adjusted up/down and fore/aft. If we’re going to come up with any complaint, we’ll note that there are no markings for these adjustments. The up/down adjustments are not bad, as you drop the pin in a hole, so that is easily identifiable. The fore/aft adjustments however don’t have any markings. So, if someone moves your handlebars or seat, you can’t get back to your setting quickly.
Final Word on the IRONMAN H-Class 520 Magnetic Tension Indoor Training Cycle with Bluetooth:
For under the price range, the IRONMAN H-Class 520 is a great option. This bike is solidly built with great components like the 44 lb flywheel, 3-piece crank system and belt drive. This may be the cheapest belt driven bike that you can find with a heart rate chest strap included. Overall, IRONMAN fits this bike with everything you’ll need. Honestly, there’s not much we complain about with this one.
