Principle of resistance adjustment: The resistance is adjusted through the physical friction between the brake disk and the flywheel. Generally, this adjustment mode will generate noise due to physical friction, and the resistance change is not smooth enough, so the adjustment range is small.
Disadvantages: The accuracy is relatively poor, and the adjustment is prone to be over-limit or not enough. Another disadvantage is that the flywheel will generate inertia during riding. Sometimes, if you do not pay attention to it, your feet will slide away from the pedal easily, causing certain danger.
2.Magnetic Resistance Spin Bikes
Principle of resistance adjustment: Magnets are installed on both sides of the metal flywheel, and the resistance is adjusted by controlling the distance between the magnet and the flywheel via a wire motor. The particular strong magnet material is used to realize a balanced state of no friction and non-contact suspension between the large flywheel and the magnet. The movement resistance can be controlled through the distance adjustment and the resistance level can be adjusted more accurately.
Advantages: no friction, ultra-quiet; low loss, no change of accessories for life; high smoothness, never getting stuck during riding; automatic resistance control, no manual adjustment needed; linking with sports app, various programs.
3.Electromagnetic Resistance Spin Bikes
Principle of resistance adjustment: mainly includes the magnetic effect of electric current and Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, namely, the process in which the conductor in the magnetic field cuts the magnetic line of force to generate induced current, and the magnetic field creates ampere force (Lorentz force) on the live conductor. If the bike keeps powered on, the user experience is better. It is the highest-end bike product in the market.
Compared with ordinary magnetic resistance bikes, except for the quiet effect, automatic resistance adjustment, and more smart programs, electromagnetic resistance spin bikes also have the following advantages:
1. The adjustment speed is faster. The adjustment from the highest gear to the lowest gear needs less than 0.1s, while the wire motor takes at least 3s-5s.
2. The adjustment granularity is finer. The resistance adjustment can be divided into 1,000 gears, while the wire motor can achieve 32 gears at most.
3. The power accuracy is higher, up to ±5%, while the wire motor has poor accuracy, generally ±20-30%.

How to use a heart rate monitor is not a complicated thing, just keeps you in the correct heart rate range. However, how to train according to heart rate is not that simple.
Before you start your training, find out these numbers
Resting Heart Rate: the number of heartbeats per minute while you’re at rest, the normal resting heart rate for adults over the age of 10 years, including older adults, is between 60 and 100 beats per minute (bpm)
Maximum Heart Rate: You can calculate your maximum heart rate by subtracting your age from 220. When you know your maximum heart rate, you can calculate your heart rate zones and train at the right intensity.
Heart Rate Reserve: this is simply your max HR minus your resting heart rate and reflects how much your heart rate can increase to provide more oxygen to your muscles.
Target Heart Rate: To calculate your target heart rate (THR) zone, multiply your MHR by 64% and 76%. These numbers give you the low and high numbers that your heart rate should stay within the majority of the time while you are exercising at a moderate intensity level
There are many ways to find out your RHR AND MHR, and using a heart rate monitor is the easiest and most accurate way to get the right number.
About the heart rate intervals
After confirming these main data (maximum heart rate, resting heart rate), you can now calculate your heart rate interval. At present, many people tend to divide their heart rate into five sections, and the British Bicycle Coach Association divides it into six sections.
60%-65% maximum heart rate: it is suitable for long-distance low-intensity riding to promote fat burning;
65%-75% maximum heart rate: the basic training interval, it is suitable for medium-intensity riding at a slightly longer distance;
75%-82% maximum heart rate: it is for medium distance, slightly higher intensity riding, promotes aerobic capacity and endurance improvement
82%-89% maximum heart rate: it is for simulating game rhythm and intensity
89%-94% maximum heart rate: it is for itt of 16-40 km, increasing the anaerobic threshold
94%-100% maximum heart rate: it is for high-intensity interval training to increase maximum output power and speed
The ‘fat burning zone‘ is where you are working out at about 70 – 80% of your maximum heart rate, also known as your fat burning heart rate.
The spinning bike, similar to the normal bike comprised of the handlebar, seat, pedal, and flywheel, is stably connected as a whole. However, thanks to scientific hardware design, the spinning bike performs better by following ergonomic design principles, making the cycling posture more comfortable.
Professional cyclists, before cycling, will make specialized adjustments to the distance from the seat to the handlebar of the spinning bike. Of course, before riding the spinning bike, we should adjust the height of the seat and handlebar to find the best posture for cycling.
The above pictures show the common design for height adjustments and braking in the market. Magene Smart Bike has not only optimized these functions but also developed the smart control resistance to make operations easier and facilitate smoother training. The above-mentioned is not enough to make the spinning bike excellent. What matters most is the scientific and rigorous control system for test and resistance detection.
MAGENE uses the electromagnetic resistance based on the normal bike and adds the electronic control device to the G801 spin bike. The size of the current through the iron core can change the magnetic field strength around the flywheel, creating resistance to hinder the flywheel movement. It simulates the actual road conditions and gives feedback to users, creating an outdoor-like cycling experience. In addition, the accurate calculation of torque and cadence values can provide multiple exercise parameters to users, thus improving cycling efficiency and increasing work effectiveness to avoid ineffective output.
Now, follow Onelap coach, and let’s look at the detailed structural breakdown of Magene Smart Bike:
The patented and mm-precision quick-release developed by our own is no longer restricted to the traditional bike adjustments of the hole position with the fixed height. Even non-professional cyclists can make fitting freely.
I. Seatpost + Handlebar with Any Height Adjustable from 155 to 185cm
II. Mobile Phone and Pad Sucker, Say Goodbye to Black and White Screens
Fix mobile phone or pad with one hand. It supports mobile phones and pads of any size. Release lightly and it’s fixed stably.
III. Smart Electromagnetic Resistance, 100-level Resistance Adjustment
The resistance supports adjustments from 0 to 99, creating a seamless transition of the exercise intensity and rejecting the improper fitness method without feedback, and relying on pure hand-twisting adjustments.
The resistance size is adjusted mainly through the main control board to control the current size intelligently, without any friction, no required manual switch. The more accurate the adjustment, the more uniform the resistance. The iron core generates resistance through the eddy current magnetic field to hinder the dead flywheel movement. The stronger the magnetic field, the greater the resistance.
IV. View Resistance Level and Power Value at Any Time
The low-end spinning bike sold in the market does not provide cadence, resistance, and other values, but is also unable to connect with the game or applications to provide feedback. Due to a lack of real resistance and the actual road conditions, it is impossible to provide genuine feedback on the exercise effect.
The Magene spinning bike provides more accurate training data, rather than a blind focus on cadence.
V. Coverage Less than 0.5 Square Meters
The light bike body has a net weight of only 30kg, covering an area of less than 0.5 square meters. The rollers on the front floor pipe move smoothly. It can ensure exercise security during its use. And when not in use, this exquisite and compact product can be put away, not taking up space.
VI. Sensitive Speed Test, even to Test a Cadence of 200 RPM with Ease
The speed test adopts the ultra-high sensitivity chip. Even when the national professional player performs the highly intensive training, it can detect the cycling speed with ease and provide the real-time cadence value.
VII. Q Factor: 155mm
The self-developed crank of high strength ensures a lower Q factor. Compared with iron cranks, the crank looks more awesome with greater strength.
The Q factor is the distance between two cranks, commonly known as the pedal stance width. A distance of 155mm between two feet is found to be the best for cycling based on the ergonomic design principles and tests by hardware developers. The 155mm is the most comfortable and effective stance width as the knees are perpendicular to the power point, making the pedaling more efficient.
VIII. Fixed Gear with Fan Blades
The self-developed fixed gear with fan blades can dissipate heat from system operation timely. Compared with the bladeless electromagnetic flywheel, the temperature is lower by 10 degrees.
IX. Colorful Ambient Light
The colorful ambient light enables us to straightforwardly learn about the self-power or the heart rate zone, as well as the training intensity.
