Detailed Comparison of Freebeat Lit & Boom Bikes
While the Freebeat Lit and Boom bikes are almost identical in their specifications and riding experiences, there are minor differences. Please look below to see how these bikes stack up against one another.

The Freebeat Lit and Boom bikes feature a Beat V power transmission belt drive.
The auto resistance algorithm offered by Freebeat analyzes each rider’s performance level and finds the perfect resistance to apply per the instructor’s cue.
The competitive style saddles also include Smart Saddle Detection+. This technology identifies when riders are in or out of the saddle. Higher point values are awarded for riding on the beat out of the saddle through the Smart Saddle Detection+ technology.
