Advanced Features

We were actually quite surprised with the advanced features that this product offers. Due to the fact that it has limited basic features, it was unexpected to see what this bike has to offer. It includes a pulse monitor. When you use this throughout your workout you will be able to keep your heart rate in the targeted Zone.

Pedals

The pedals that come with us by car slightly larger than standard bike pedals. This will accommodate a larger variety of foot sizes and shapes. It is important to note that there are grooves in the pedals to improve the grip of your shoe. Some users may find it uncomfortable if you try to use it without wearing shoes. There are straps across the pedals to help keep your feet in place. It has been noted from customers that after using them for a little while they may break. They are not exceptionally durable. You will, however, be able to contact the company and get replacement straps to ensure your feet stay in place while using this piece of equipment.

You will simply need to turn the dial and you can do this at any point throughout your workout to make it harder or easier.

Drive

This product uses a v-belt drive. This is very similar to a standard belt-drive but the shape of it allows for a smoother takeoff and nicer ride. One of the major problems with belt drives is when the brand does not use a high-quality belt. This can lead to its snapping over the course of time and if this happens your bike will be unusable. Naturally, this is a part that can be replaced but if it snaps in the middle of your routine it can be very frustrating and throw you off of your game.

This leads to easy Storage and the ability to free up space whenever you need to. The length of this product is 31 inches. This is quite a bit under the average length of an exercise bike. Where people really get concerned is with width. You are looking at a mere 19 inches. As you can see this bike is quite small. That does not mean that it is not sturdy and durable. It can handle weights up to three hundred pounds with ease. This is great news for those of you looking to lose weight and need an affordable option.

This product is a decent value. it is not nearly as pricey as other options that are available to you. In addition, it is not as high quality as exercise bikes that you would pay a bit more money for.
