The Bodyguard R6X recumbent bike is an exceptionally comfortable bike with a lot of extras that are not typical of a bike in this price range.
The seat adjustment allows for infinite and exact seat positioning. Combined with an adjustable tilt on the seat back this bike allows for each individual to get a really comfortable and proper fit. For those with less mobility the walk through frame eliminates having to step up and over the frame and combined with the wrap around handlebars provides good support when getting on and off the bike.
The low starting resistance is crucial for anyone using this for rehab. Make no mistake, this will accomodate a serious user. The all steel welded frame will stand up to a high intensity workout and the eddy current magnetic resistance system provides a wide range of resistance as high as 400 watts. Of importance for any user is the narrow pedal width. This ensures proper hip to knee alignment.
Very cool "cruise control" buttons in the support bars make console ajustments fast and easy. Contact heart rate is located here as well.
