Certification mark for exercise bicycles and indoor fitness equipment


The certification mark applies to institutional or consumer-use exercise bicycles as an indoor fitness equipment. The exercise bicycle allows an user’s upper or lower body in an upright or recumbent position to turn a directly coupled or connected flywheel or freewheel to crank mechanism with the user’s feet or Hands.

Basis of certification:

The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD is based on the ASTM F 2276-10 and ASTM F 1250-18 US-standard. These standards define general safety requirements for the design and manufacturing of exercise bicycles as stationary fitness equipment intended to be used by individuals age 13 and older.

Keywords of the certification mark:

  • ASTM F 2276-10 and ASTM F 1250-18

    The certification is based on the USA Standards ASTM F 2276-10 (Standard specification for fitness equipment) and ASTM F 1250-18 (Standard specification for exercise bicycles).


  • ASTM F 2276-10 and ASTM F 1250-20
    The Certification is based on the USA Standards ASTM F2276-10 (Standard Specification for Fit-ness Equipment) and ASTM F1250-20 (Standard Specification for Exercise Bicycles).
  • Safety tested

    The voluntary TÜV SÜD certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is awarded for products indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.

    While the focus in the case of a hair dryer, for example, is on electrical safety, the focus in the case of a car jack is on the mechanical characteristics.

  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
