Costco Echelon Bike, EX-4S Studio Spin Bike


Costco sells the Echelon spin bike for $999.99. Scroll down for photos. This is a much closer competitor to the Peloton as opposed to the Proform Bike I posted a while back. I saw the Echelon workers inside Costco giving demonstrations. It appeared to have all the bells & whistles of the Peloton bike at a fraction of the cost. Full disclosure…we own a Peloton bike & we absolutely love it. The reason we like it so much is because of the community & feature built around it. I really like to nerd out sometimes & I enjoy tracking my progress as well as output, calories, distance, etc. The Peloton has all those features & so does the Echelon. For less than half the price of Peloton you can get similar features. Here is a little bit more about this Costco Echelon Bike …….

Echelon Bike at Costco, EX-4S Connected Bike


I read most of the reviews on Costco’s website. The majority of the complaints seem to be the software. Many people state the bike itself feels like a well made bike. Echelon may have rolled out the product too early before getting the software up to date. Some people had trouble connecting it to their Apple products, while others had Bluetooth issues. I had somewhat similar problems when we first got the Peloton. There were very minor glitches that got worked out very quickly with software updates. I imagine Echelon will be rolling updates out quickly to solve most of these problems. This bike appears to be a worthy competitor to the Peloton & if you’re in the market, make sure to take a look at this one. Before you buy, make sure to check out these HIGHLY RATED competitors……

  1. In order to turn on bluetooth, Turn the Big Red Button to the right a few times and should make a loud beep noise. That means bluetooth is on and the blue light should be blinking now. Go to your phone settings and turn on bluetooth and it should show up there

  2. Hi I am looking to purchase this item. My question is the screen on this bike only for classes and riding thru trails, or can i watch movies or browse internet ?

    1. That’s a good question. As mentioned above, I have a Peloton. There is no way to watch movies or browse the internet on my bike. I’m guessing you will not be able to do that on this bike. It is probably specifically designed for the Echelon Classes. You can always mount an iPad in front of the screen & browse the Internet & watch movies. That is probably the best option

  3. I am not able to find any way to set up Bluetooth on my EX-4s. Anyone have any suggestions? Perhaps it doesn’t have Bluetooth?

    1. I just uploaded the product manual. Nowhere in the manual does it mention Bluetooth, so I don’t think this machine has that feature. It’s unfortunate because it’s common technology & most people would like it in case they are in a household & don’t want to bother others. It’s also nice if you’re an early riser & want to keep the house quiet for a while. Sorry about that

      1. Actually it does. I stumbled across it yesterday after I posted my question. When I was working out and doing a scenic route, an image of headphones appeared on the right side of the screen. When I touched the image, the Bluetooth came up. I paired and then connected my headphones, and it works. I don’t know why they basically hide it.

        1. Oh wow. You think they would mention it. Thanks for letting me know. Glad you found it & it wasn’t too difficult to sync up. Costco should mention it on the price tag somewhere as a feature……. “Bluetooth capable”, or even put it on the box. This is an important feature for a lot of people. Thanks for the reply Jerry. That’s great to know

        1. I can still see the comment Jerry. I’ll repost it in case anyone missed it…….

          Thanks

    2. It does have Bluetooth. I have connected mine (separately of course) to a Vizio soundbar and also Beats headphones. You can’t get to the menu where you connect until you are ‘in’ a class or workout (or freestyle ride would work too). It is the little headphone pic on the right. I feel like this should be somewhere in settings (More…).

      That being said, it was a little tricky with the ordering of pairing mode, etc. but it does work (much better than native speakers IMO).

      1. Thanks Anne. You would think they would make it easier…..like being able to connect it pre-workout via a settings menu or something. Anyways, that’s good to know. I’m not surprised the speakers on this bike are on the cheaper end. I use my Bluetooth speakers all the time on my bike and treadmill & prefer it over the console speakers. Thanks for the information & happy riding!

      1. Good to know. Thanks Anne. I just know how much I sweat on my bike & I wouldn’t want that on he carpet everyday. I know it wouldn’t take long to stain. Even a towel may seep through depending on the length of the class. The mat’s I have linked above are a great affordable option. Thanks for the comment Anne

  4. Does anyone has problems connecting to the bike? The tablet works but it won’t display at the bottom the speed, cadence or calories and I get a red bar on top that saying that it is disconnected.

    1. Hi Kiki. I don’t own this exact model. As mentioned, we have a Peloton. Maybe one of the users here can chime in. My suggestion would be to make sure your tablet is fully updated, the app is updated & try deleting/re-installing the app if that doesn’t work. Silly question, but were you able to successfully get a Bluetooth connection from your bike to the tablet?

        1. I just uploaded the product manual. Nowhere in the manual does it mention Bluetooth, so I don’t think this machine has that feature. It’s unfortunate because it’s common technology & most people would like it in case they are in a household & don’t want to bother others. It’s also nice if you’re an early riser & want to keep the house quiet for a while. Sorry about that

  5. This bike (4s) is not shown on the echelon website. Have not been able to see reviews other than the one posted on Costco site. Any more info available for this bike?

    1. I looked near & far for that manual. Unfortunately I don’t have any more information on it. The only manual I could find was for the model 5. This must be a bike specifically made for Costco, which happens with a lot of Costco products. They’ve done it with routers in the past & it was frustrating trying to find product manuals & firmware updates. I guess that comes with the lower price Costco usually has. If I do find the manual or any more reviews I will post updates. Let me know if you find anything. Thanks.
