The Bladez Fitness Aero PRO is big on technological features, yet reasonably low in price, particularly when put up against similarly priced and more expensive exercise bikes. It does not require an electrical outlet, as “Powered By You” self-generating technology has been incorporated into the bike’s design, which is just a fancy way of saying that the bike’s technological features are powered by your movement.
While Bladez Fitness may not be as well known as other manufacturers, such as LiveStrong and ProForm, it’s certainly a well-made, reliable bike, if its generous warranty is anything to go by, which is often a very good indication of a bike’s quality (the Bladez Fitness Jet GS is also worth a look at if you budget is sub $500).
The Bladez Fitness Aero PRO comes equipped with the same number of workout programs that can be seen on exercise bikes that cost $1,000+. In total, there are 15 programs to choose from, including 12 preset programs, in addition to a heart rate, custom and manual program, which all do a good job at varying your workout, while keeping things interesting and in line with your fitness goals.
The Bladez Fitness Aero PRO features the most resistance levels we have seen on any exercise bike and, yes, this includes bikes that retail at around the $2,000+ mark. There are 32 adjustable resistance levels, meaning that whether you’re a couch potato or an Olympic athlete, you’ll still be able to find a level of resistance that is challenging enough for you.
The flywheel weighs 31 pounds, and while it’s true that other bikes come equipped with a 40-pound flywheel, the Aero PRO doesn’t wobble from side to side as you cycle, but importantly, this results in a very smooth, quiet, lifelike pedaling motion, which is down to the flywheel and Poly-V belt drive working in combination with each other. It’s also worth noting that there is a manual brake, which can be used to stop the bike immediately.
Exercise bikes aren’t known for their comfort, but Bladez Fitness have done a pretty good job at making the Aero PRO as comfortable as possible. The racing style handlebars and seat can be adjusted incrementally, both horizontally and vertically, allowing both smaller and larger users to get into a comfortable riding position.
The seat also features a decent amount of padding for added comfort, and the foot pedals are dual-sided and can accommodate both regular and clip-on shoes, while also doing a very good job of preventing foot slippage as you cycle.
The computer console on the Bladez Fitness Aero PRO is oversized, making it easy to read, and provides you with feedback on some of the most important information you could want to know as you cycle, including time, speed, RPMs, distance, and calories burned. Your heart rate can also be recorded, via the built-in heart rate receiver.
Wheels can be found on the bottom of the bike for ease of transportation and storage purposes.
The Aero PRO is backed by a lifetime frame, and 1-year parts and labor warranty.

Bladez Fitness Aero PRO User Reviews
The Aero PRO hasn’t got a lot of reviews to its name, but from what we’ve read it seems to be a high quality exercise bike that mostly ticks all the right boxes.
Users have praised the bike’s smooth pealing motion, as well as its quietness when in operation, making it a good choice for those who don’t want to annoy the neighbors as they work out. The seat is more comfortable than expected, which comes as no surprise when you consider the overall comfort of exercise bikes, and the ease of assembly and generous warranty is also much appreciated.
Surprisingly, users have had nothing to complain about, although this may have changed since we last looked.

There really isn’t much to complain about, although perhaps you should keep in mind that at 137 pounds the bike is a little on the heavy side, so you will probably need another person to help you move it to your location of choice once delivered. If you’ve never used an exercise bike before, then you may want to purchase a gel seat cover, as the seat may be uncomfortable for some people and can take some time to get used to.
Anything Else You Should Know?
All you need to know is that if you are looking for a well-constructed, reliable exercise bike that comes packed with a range of technological features, but perhaps more importantly, don’t want to pay over $1,000 for the privilege, then the Bladez Fitness Aero PRO should be at the top of your list.
