The Buzz

The frictionless magnetic brake system provides smooth performance and up to 10 settings of resistance. The Kettler HKS Polo M has a sturdy, powder-coated, high-carbon steel frame, as well as sealed ball bearings for a smooth and maintenance-free operation, and a Poly V belt drive system that eliminates the need for a noisy bike chain that requires lubrication.

The Q-factor pedal spacing width of 7.5" provides a correct biomechanical fit, and the extra-wide and thick padded saddle allows the user to exercise in optimum comfort.

The German-made Kettler HKS Polo M can measure heart rate in three ways: by using the telemetric handgrips, using a wireless heart rate chest strap (optional), or with an infrared earlobe clip sensor (also optional).

Although the HKS Polo M has an adjustable seat post, current users are advising would-be buyers that the seat won’t lower far enough for a shorter person. Also, the exercise bike is easy to assemble but comes only with illustrations and no written instructions in English.

Our Take

The Kettler HKS Polo M exercise bike is lightweight (60-lb) and portable, very well made, and has the durability of a bike costing twice as much.

The large LCD display is easy to use, and the belt drive and good size 15.4-lb flywheel make this model very quiet and smooth for a home model. Priced at just $549, it will meet or beat your expectations.
