This is a well designed bike for this price point with a lot of features. The back rest in angle hydraulically by levers located in the seat handlebars. The same applies to the seat adjustment allowing for infinite settings to suit each individual. Pedal width is narrow to accomodate proper hip and knee alignment.
Tension is calculated in watts starting at 1000 up to 40 more levels. This is quite low especially for a self generating bikeand combined with the low start up speed make this ideal for any one using it for a rehab use or is at a low fitness level. The 30 lbs flywheel makes for a very smooth and and consistent pedaling action.
Heart rate is picked up either by a cardio touch sensorsin the handlebars or by the Polar chest strap included. Programs include 6 preset programs; 2 custom programs and 2 heart rate controlled programs. The auto-pilot program allows you to turn any program into a heart rate contolled program.
A 48" x 26" footprints makes a relatively compact for a recumbent bike and the 350 lbs user capacity insures a strong, solid frame.
Better get going though - the fan only works if you pedal!!
