How Much Does A Peloton Bike Weigh? (Quick Answer)

The original Peloton Bike weighs in at 135 lbs or 61.2 Kg. The new Peloton Bike+ weighs 140 lbs or 63.5 Kg.

Weight is an important consideration when you’re looking at whether to purchase a Peloton, however there are some other metrics which are at least as important (if not more so). These include the overall dimensions of the bike, including the footprint. The user height range and maximum weight. The space requirements, both above the bike and on all sides. Plus, the power input needed, WiFi connectivity and media output.

Let’s take a look at these in detail so that you can make an informed choice about whether a Peloton is the right choice for you.


Peloton dimensions and space requirements

Bike
Footprint: 24”x48”
Size: L 59” x W 23” x H 53”
Screen: 21.5” across the diagonal; adjustable height; 1080p
Minimum ceiling height: 8’ to ensure users have headroom when riding
Space around bike: 24” on each side

Bike+
Footprint: 24”x48”
Size: L 59” x W 22” x H 59”
Screen: 23.8” across the diagonal; 360 degree rotating; 1080p
Minimum ceiling height: 8’ to ensure users have headroom when riding
Space around bike: 24” on each side

With an upright riding position, coupled with the overall dimensions of these two models, the Peloton is compact enough to fit into some tight spaces. That’s great because it means there are plenty of locations around the home where it will easily go.

Be aware of the recommended ceiling height of 8 feet and make sure you don’t put your bike in a corner where you’ll knock your head off the roof. Also allow sufficient space round about to get on and off the bike. With wobbly legs at the end of a workout you don’t want to be clambering over furniture.

Another consideration is the floor surface that your bike is on and I’ve got more detail on this here.


Peloton bike user requirements

Bike
Rider height: 4’11” – 6’4”
Rider weight: 297 lbs
Rider age: 14+

Bike+
Rider height: 4’11” – 6’4”
Rider weight: 297 lbs
Rider age: 14+

It’s worth being aware of the user requirements before you part with your hard-earned cash. Below 4’11” in height and you may struggle to reach the pedals or handlebars. Above 6’4” and you will likely find that your knees keep bashing either the handlebars or your chin. Exercise bikes in general are a great way to burn calories but, if you currently weigh more than 297 lbs, then you’ll need to look at other options first until you come in under the maximum allowance.


Peloton power input

Bike
100-240v; 50-60Hz; 1.2A Maximum

Bike+
100-240v; 50-60Hz; 3.25A Maximum

Both bikes use standard household power supplies and sockets, as you’d expect. What is worth thinking about though is whether you can position your bike close to a socket. Trailing electricity cables are never a good idea and, with unsteady post-workout legs, they can be very dangerous indeed.


Peloton media output

Bike
2-Channel rear stereo speakers; 16W total power
3.5 mm headphone jack
Bluetooth 4.0

Bike+
2.2 Channel front stereo speakers (26W total power); 2.2 rear woofers
3.5 mm headphone jack
Bluetooth 5.0

The speakers on both bikes are good, but they’re not appropriate in all situations and it’s worthwhile looking at the other options available which will connect to your bike via Bluetooth.

In some cases, the volume can feel as if it’s too quiet, especially if there’s a great deal of ambient noise such as traffic. At other times you might feel that you need to have the volume up, but you’ve got kids sleeping or grumpy neighbors. In all these situations there are some great solutions from standalone Bluetooth speakers to earbuds or headphones. I’ve got more details on the options available here.


Peloton WiFi connectivity

Bike
WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac

Bike+
WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac – 2.4GHz & 5GHz

Both bikes feature the current standard WiFi connection, an essential as the workout classes are all live-streamed to the screen. If you have trouble with your WiFi connection, maybe if your bike is positioned a long way from the router, then it may be worth getting a WiFi booster, also known as Wireless range extender.


Conclusion

Either the Peloton Bike or the new model Bike+ are fantastic options for getting fit at home. Once you’ve satisfied yourself that the bike will fit into your chosen spot then I’d jump right in and get started. It’s an investment that will pay you back in huge quantities.

Have fun.
