WARNING: To reduce risk of serious injury, read all safety information carefully before operating the SoulCycle at-home bike and follow all operating and maintenance instructions. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that all users of the bike are aware of all instructions and safety information provided for the bike.
Health & Safety First
Always consult with your physician before starting any new exercise program. Discontinue exercise and consult a medical expert immediately if it causes pain or severe discomfort.
Stay hydrated: Drink water throughout your ride, even if you do not feel thirsty.
If at any time you feel dizzy or experience difficulty breathing, chest pain, or other signs that you are not well, gradually stop pedaling, carefully dismount the bike, and consult a medical expert immediately.
Always listen to your body, ride at your own pace, and set your bike’s resistance at the level that feels right for you. Instructor guidance is not a substitute for listening to your body.
Metrics on the screen, including heart rate monitoring, may be inaccurate. Metrics should be used for reference only and not as a substitute for listening to your body.
The bike is solely for indoor use. To avoid risk of shock, overheating, or product damage, do not store the bike in a garage or covered patio, near water, or in a damp or dusty location. The bike should only be placed on a level, firm surface to prevent risk of tip-over.
Ensure sufficient clearance: Keep objects at least 24” away from the bike on all sides to allow access around the bike, safe mounting and dismounting, and prevent injury from contact with objects. Keep children and pets away from the bike.
The maximum weight for riders is 350 pounds (159 kilograms). Riders under 4’10” (147 cm) or above 6’10” (208 cm) should not ride the bike.
Children under the age of 16 and persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities that can impair the safe use of the bike must not use the bike. Children over the age of 16 and all new or untrained riders must be supervised and given safe use instruction before riding the bike.
To ensure safety and optimal performance, check the bike for wear and damage before each ride, and regularly inspect, maintain, and properly tighten all parts as recommended in the user manual.
Replace any damaged or worn parts immediately and do not use the bike until repair is performed. Do not attempt to repair the bike yourself other than as provided in the user manual; always use an authorized service provider to perform adjustments or repairs, with original parts from the manufacturer.
Ensure that all bike adjustment levers and knobs are properly configured for your body and properly secured according to the user manual before each ride to avoid injuries during exercise.
Do not use the bike without proper clip-in cycling shoes. The pedals are compatible with LOOK® Delta and SPD clips. Never operate the bike pedals with bare feet or by hand.
Do not wear loose clothing that could become caught on the bike while riding. Keep shoelaces, accessories, hands, feet, and other objects away from openings and moving parts of the bike.
Ensure the power cable is properly secured and clear of all moving parts of the bike. Always unplug the bike immediately after use and before cleaning or maintenance.
Watch all instructional training videos carefully before first use or attempting new movements on the bike to ensure proper form and safety.
Maintain resistance and engage your core: To avoid injury, always keep some resistance on the bike and engage your core. Never attempt to stand up on the pedals or use hand weights without adequate resistance.
Stay in control: Execute all core movements, hand positions, and hand weight exercises at a slow pace before attempting to increase your speed, and do not attempt to ride the bike in a standing position at a high RPM until you have practiced at slower speeds. Focus on form, posture, and making smooth, controlled transitions between movements. Always keep your back straight while riding; do not arch your back.
Stop the bike gradually: The pedals will continue to turn until the weighted flywheel stops. To stop, you must gradually slow your pedal strokes. Attempting to stop abruptly could result in serious injury.
If you need to stop urgently, use the emergency brake by pushing and holding down on the resistance knob.
Never dismount the bike or remove your feet from the pedals until both the pedals and the flywheel have stopped completely, as loss of control and serious injury could result. If your foot disengages from the pedal while riding, quickly move your feet to the side and push and hold down on the resistance knob to stop the flywheel.
