'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Prime Day deal: Echelon EX-15 bike is $100 off for today only (Update: Expired)

Amazon Prime Day 2022 deal alert: The indoor cycling bike plus a 30-day free Echelon membership could be yours for $400.
Written by Sherin Shibu, Contributor

Echelon is an affordable Peloton alternative in the indoor cycling world, carving out a name for itself as one of the best options out there. For the next 10 hours, you could purchase one of their most popular options for $100 off. 


The Echelon EX-15 bike offers a vigorous home workout, with 32 levels of resistance, a 0.6-inch competition-style extra large seat, and over 1,500 on-demand rides. The machine lets you easily adjust resistance levels and has slip-resistant ergonomic bars. On the Echelon Fit app, you get to ride live with world-class instructors and access Zumba, barre, strength, yoga, and other classes. This deal comes with a free 30-day trial of the Echelon Premier membership so that you can access music and classes for up to five users. 

One potential downside is that unlike other more expensive models of the Echelon, the EX-15 doesn't come with a touchscreen tablet. You have to pull up the Echelon Fit app on your phone or personal tablet and follow along with classes from there. This could actually be an advantage because not having a screen frees up space for a bigger one of your choice and gives you the freedom to choose whether or not to even have one. The machine also has a secure place for you to view your device while you work out. 

The EX-15 is solid and won't move as you pedal but doesn't take up a lot of space. 

If you have any issues with the EX-15, you can return it within the first 30 days and get your money back.
