The Exerpeutic LX7 Indoor Cycle Trainer Review

The Exerpeutic LX7 Indoor Cycle Trainer is loaded with features. Special stop break, flywheel with chrome rim, heart rate sensors, and console to measure various statistics are just some of the hot features of this exercise bike. With so many features it’s only natural to presume the Exerpeutic LX7 would cost a bomb. In fact, the LX7 is very reasonably priced; much cheaper than other bikes with the same features.

Honestly, the Exerpeutic LX7 Indoor Cycle Trainer is one big package of all that’s good. Let’s explore the best qualities of the bike.

Designed to withstand the strains of intense workout 

From healthy individuals wanting to strengthen their lower body muscles to obese people wanting to lose weight – the indoor cycle trainer needs to handle a lot of abuse. Luckily, the Exerpeutic LX7 Indoor Cycle Trainer is built to withstand the strains of an intense workout. The bike’s body is made of a high-quality steel frame that can withstand a maximum weight of 300lbs.

To reduce the risk of unwanted movement during exercise sessions the makers have attached four feet to the base. Each foot can be individually adjusted to keep the bike stable even on an uneven surface. The Exerpeutic LX7 is also fitted with removable transport wheels to move the bike after the workout sessions.

Improve posture by adjusting the seat and handlebars

There are many ways to ride the indoor cycle trainer. You can ride it standing, in the usual sitting position, leaning forwards, etc. Moreover, the body position or posture you assume shouldn’t put excess pressure on the joints or lead to injury. To increase comfort and avoid injuries, the exercise bike is fitted with adjustable seat and handlebars.

The seat can be adjusted 4 ways; horizontally (front and back) and vertically (up and down). The seat is moved by loosening the knob. The handlebars have multiple grip positions and it can be only moved vertically. To move the position of the handlebar, adjust the two knobs and proceed. Anyone between the height of 5’2’’ and 6’2’’ can use the Exerpeutic LX7.

The drive system and resistance

The Exerpeutic LX7 has an iron flywheel with chrome rim. The flywheel is rotated using the chain drive system. The chain drive mechanism helps the bike mimic the feeling of on-road cycles. The chain system and flywheel work together to give users smooth, noiseless pedaling experience.

The pedals in the Exerpeutic LX7 have slip-resistant straps and toe cages. Resistance is increased using the friction mechanism on the flywheel. To change the resistance, users turn a knob on the main tube of the bike.

A computer system to measure vital stats during workouts

The console is placed near the handlebar, where you won’t have trouble tracking time, distance, calories, and speed. Apart from these stats, the console also measures the total time, total distance, and the heart rate. For the console to measure the pulse rate your hands must be on the sensors placed on the handlebar. The device is powered by 2 x AA battery and it automatically goes into sleep mode if there is no pedaling activity for 4 minutes. Keep the console away from too much sweat.
