Keiser M3i Indoor Bike | Built Entirely Around You

Keiser M3i Indoor Bike | Built Entirely Around You


(primal drum music) – [Narrator] More than 20 years ago, Keiser set out to create
a bike that would exceed the demands of indoor group cycling. A bike that fits riders of
all body shapes and sizes. A bike that achieves a quiet, but true road bike experience
inside your gym or home. The only bike built in the United States to ensure the tightest quality control. And a bike that accomplishes it all with the simplest of engineering designs. The Keiser M3i indoor bike. Thanks to the lessons learned from our past generation of bikes and
our constant innovations, the Keiser M3i isn’t just any
indoor group cycling bike. It’s the industry’s only
indoor group cycling bike built entirely around you. That’s you the rider; you the gym owner; and you the service technician. Because you are always our priority. Other indoor group
cycling bike manufacturers talk about providing
a road bike experience but they make the mistake
of using a road bike’s back-angled head tube frame which collapses the cockpit as it’s raised and doesn’t easily accommodate
large or small riders. Keiser instead recognized
that what’s important about road bikes is how the frames vary to accommodate riders of different sizes. That’s why we were the first to engineer a V-shaped frame, enabling
the M3i’s seat and handlebars to be simply raised in
conjunction with one another. To adjust for longer
legs, torsos, and arms. And allowing the bike to match
anyone from 4’10” to 7’0″ with a weight capacity of 350 pounds. Keiser was the first bike manufacturer to put the flywheel at
the rear of the machine. Why? Because we were the first to recognize the obvious engineering
flaw in other bikes that placed the rider’s sweat zone directly over the flywheel. By transferring the wheel to the rear, we removed the bike’s
vulnerable mechanisms from the sweat zone ensuring that the M3i is more
reliable, easier to clean and better protected from
contaminants and corrosion. For further protection,
the M3i frame also includes an angled channel that
flows excess fluid away from the bike’s drive train. As the first company to
use magnetic resistance, Keiser revolutionized indoor group cycling by delivering a quiet,
reliable, consistent ride. And allowing the M3i to be the first bike to display power in real time. Based on our dynamometer
testing we are able to predict the power generated by both
legs for any given cadence, in any given magnet position. We don’t have to measure it. We already know which ensures
that indoor group cyclists can always hit their power
targets with ride data so immediate and accurate
that the M3i was the first to receive EN957 certification
for accuracy and safety. The competition followed our lead on using magnetic resistance but because they didn’t also
update their drive train design they’re still lagging behind today. Most indoor group cycling bikes still rely on a heavy perimeter weighted flywheel. Or a complex multi-belt drive train to generate the kinetic energy necessary to simulate a good road bike experience. In fact, many manufacturers even brag about their cog belt drive, their perimeter weighted flywheel, or their flywheel to crank arm ratio, but what they’re really telling you is… they designed their bike wrong. Only Keiser has designed a drive train specifically built for magnetic resistance using a simple, quiet,
single poly V-belt drive. The poly V-belt was the key to our design because of its ability to
transmit very high loads over very small pulleys. Allowing the M3i to achieve
a road bike experience without a perimeter weighted flywheel or a more complicated drive train. Or the unnecessary noise
and vibration of a cog belt. The poly V is also the choice
of automotive manufacturers to run the accessories
in the front of an engine because it’s so quiet,
durable, and reliable. On the M3i, the belt
requires no maintenance other than routine inspection. And the belt’s pre-tension
design requires zero adjustments. Many indoor group cycling
bike manufacturers will talk about the distance
between their bike’s two pedals and boast about the narrow Q Factor. But they manufactured their bikes around the narrow pelvises and
footwear of elite cyclists. Given the variety of
body shapes and footwear found in any given group cycling class, why wouldn’t you design
a bike to fit everyone? Instead of using straight crank arms to achieve a narrow Q
Factor like our competitors, Keiser recognized the need for versatility and added curvature to the M3i crank arms to maintain the proper
distance for wider hips. This added curvature
also provides ample room for any type of rider footwear. From bike shoes to the bulkier gym shoes most commonly worn in group classes. Keiser also set a new
industry standard with our SPD compatible M series indoor
group cycling bike pedal. Engineered beyond consumer
standards for group classes, it’s more than a pedal;
it’s a game changer. delivering superior comfort,
safety, and durability. For additional user fit and
comfort the M3i includes quick, intuitive vertical
and horizontal adjustments of both handlebar and seat positions. As well as robust knobs that
require less maintenance than a traditional cam lock. The continuous design of
the handlebars also provides a wide array of hand positions
for indoor group cycling. With fewer parts and a lighter flywheel the M3i provides a
superior ease of transport. The bike’s water bottle
holder is incorporated into the frame design and fits
both small and large sizes. The M3i also includes
a standard media tray for holding cellphones and tablets. And stretch pad to facilitate
pre and post ride stretching. And to enhance ease of maintenance, we designed the M3i drive
train to be accessed by removing just eight
Phillips head screws. Versus over three times
more on some competitors. As the first indoor group
cycling bike to offer a standard computer showing power output, the M3i digital display is simple. With everything that a rider needs to know appearing on a single screen. The back lit display
automatically turns on when the room light
drops below a set level and unlike other bikes, remains on. There are no buttons on the computer which are an inconvenience and a cause of wear and maintenance. And the M3i shifter is mounted
directly to the handlebars for ease of use and increased safety. Especially when riding out of the saddle. To activate interval training, the rider simply pushes the
shifter all the way down and back up making the M3i
ideal for HIIT workouts. For advanced users who
want to track and record every detail about their ride, the M3i is the first bike to
offer Bluetooth with open API. Keiser was also the
first bike manufacturer to produce our own projection system which is designed to listen
only to M series bikes via a triple redundancy signal. We also designed the M3i with Keiser’s Smart
Display Enabled Technology, allowing compatibility with all major projection system providers. Giving gym owners and
instructors a wide array of options for their members. Smart display enabled
technology allows riders to use their own phone or tablet screen along with the M3i to access their favorite training content. Compatible with virtually
any training app or video, users can compete against
themselves or others, at home or at the gym. In
person or online at Keiser.com, Keiser’s world renowned
master trainers offer ongoing education,
certification, and tools so instructors can take their
indoor group cycling classes to the next level. With more than a quarter
million of our M series sold worldwide and
countless reviews placing it at the top of the
industry, it’s easy to see that there’s no indoor group
cycling bike on the planet more proven than the M3i. Keiser’s commitment to constant innovation continues to lead the
indoor cycling industry. Because form does follow function. Because simplicity is the
ultimate sophistication. Because you can’t go against tradition unless you know you’re right. Only the M3i is built entirely around you. Keiser, because ‘good enough’ isn’t.
