The user is able to navigate their workout stats with a touch of a finger or go online to check email, or  participate in social networking.

... one-touch resistance

This exercise bike makes it easier to burn calories and increase your muscle tone by allowing the user to increase or decrease the amount of resistance that is applied to the bike's motion.

There are a total of 26 digital resistance levels which can be selected from the conveniently located buttons on the control panel.



... cooling fan

A vigorous workout session can leave you feeling hot and sticky, but this exercise bike provides an ideal solution with an integrated workout cooling fan.

The two speed console mounted fan is operated from a button on the control panel and by adjusting the angle of the console the air flow can be directed to where it's needed, for the optimum cooling  effect.



... adjustable seat

To ensure maximum comfort during your workout the bike is fitted with an over size, generously padded seat. The seat can be adjusted up and down to ensure the best possible seating position.





... heart rate monitor

The exercise bike is also equipped with a "CardioGrip" heart rate monitor. This helps you to make the most out of every workout by monitoring your heart rate with sensors that are built into the handlebars.

By monitoring your heart rate you can ensure that you're always in the right training zone for your goals. This results in a more effective workout, burn more fat, and improve your cardiovascular health.



... ergonomic pedals

This exercise bike is equipped with large pedals to fit any size of foot. These ergonomically designed pedals are also fitted with adjustable straps to hold your foot in place.






... iPOD connection

The user can plug in their iPOD, or MP3 player, into the music port situated on the control panel and enjoy listening to their favorite music or an audio book title during your work out session.
