JLL produce a range of high-quality home exercise bikes, and this is the very first road training bike in their range. Being designed to get you up to speed for the road, this bike is the longest in their premium range at 137cm, with a height of 127cm and a width of 51cm. This bike will support riders of up to 130kg (effectively anyone who wants to take to the road at under 20 stone).
This new model features adjustable seat heights, handlebar heights and foot-straps, making it ideal for all members of the family to enjoy. Built-in wheels make the road training bike easily transportable and it’s SPD compatible for the rider ready to move on to advanced road rides. Ergonomic adjustable road bike handlebars allow the user to simulate all road riding stances. The racing saddle features ample cushioning, as well as flexible forward and back positioning.
The JLL Velox 2 Road Training Bike features a belt-driven 9kg fly wheel ensuring both a quiet operation when riding and minimal maintenance (this bike will require less maintenance than a chain driven one). The wheel is designed to replicate the forward momentum you experience when on a regular road bike.
The LCD display, that’s the size of a large mobile phone, features 8 functions:
You can also connect this bike to an app. You can track and record to your mobile devices with the use of a heart rate band. The heart rate sensors are placed on either side of the secondary handlebars. A handy tablet holder above the LCD display can enable you to monitor extra info on your workout, or keep you entertained as you watch Netflix or stream a movie.
This bike features 3 front and 8 rear gears which are controlled using electro-magnetic resistance. This allows the rider to accurately increase your effort with more resistance increments than many similar models.
Being a new model from JLL, there is little in the way of feedback. However, you can quickly see that feedback on other JLL models in a similar price range are excellent. The range of mid-range bikes from the company are a step up from the no-brand models, and less expensive than companies such as NordicTrack.
General feedback from the range states that the bikes are sturdy and solid, and the set-up time is lower than you might expect with some other bikes. Some find the racing seat from the range a little uncomfortable, although this is an easy fix with a gel cover. There is lots of praise for JLL customer services in the feedback, highlighting the prompt resolution of any issues from this respected UK brand.
The first thing to be said is that isn’t a simple exercise bike. If you’re a beginner and you want to simply burn calories, this isn’t the bike for you. There are simple upright bikes in the JLL exercise bikes range which will work better.
However, if you’re serious about biking and getting out on the road, you should sit up and take notice. It might seem strange to use the word ‘road’ in the name of an indoor bike, but this equipment sets you up perfectly for those road rides. If you eventually want to step up to road racing, even better. With those multiple resistance settings, the 8-function monitor, the belt driven flywheel and those SPD compatible pedals, this is a serious piece of equipment.
