Our Using Experience

The bike has many advantages, primarily the fact that it has so many resistance levels and exercise program settings. This allows for high intensity workouts, helping users to build up their muscles, exercise their bodies and improve their workout times.

It is built for comfort and strength and can take up to 300 pounds in weight, allowing for larger users to get the full recumbent bike experience along with fitter users as well. In fact the bike may well have been designed with ‘larger’ users in mind as is has been engineered with comfort in mind, the seat is large and soft and even has handles on the sides of it. The seat is adjustable for people of varying sizes and the back rest supports users effortlessly during their workout.

Disadvantages to the bike are few and far between and are mainly related to the assembly and physical shape of the bike. For instance the front handlebars can come loose after a lot of use so it may be necessary to use the side bars.

Assembly can prove to be an issue too, as it may take around two hours to fully assemble the equipment. Additionally it can prove problematic if the bike has numerous users, as it will be necessary to adjust the seat after each use.

Overall this is a high quality, easy to use, modern, trendy and effective recumbent bike that will appeal to experts and novice’s alike and is very affordable at a knockdown price of $499, 30% less than the original listed price and shipping is free!
