In Depth Look at 900XL Features
300 lb capacity is an excellent feature for this price point of a recumbent bike. This weight capacity is usually only found on recumbent bikes with a much higher price point.
8 Level Magnetic Tension System allows you to adjust the tension of the workout with an easy to use tension knob which is easily accessible while riding.
LCD Computer has an easy to read screen that gives you your distance, time, speed, calories burned, scan and heart rate,
Hand Pulse Sensors are built into the seat handlebars and monitors your heart rate which gives you the ability to elevate and maintain the rate you would like to achieve for a great cardio workout.
Large Set is saddle style so you won’t have to worry about the lower legs falling asleep well doing your workout. The large seat also allows more comfort for your gluts and hips. The back rest reclines to give a more natural spine positioning thus lower stress on legs and back which is ideal for you if overweight or recovering for knee replacement or some back injury.
Quiet flywheel when combined with the XL900″s V-belt drive gives you not only quiet but also a very smooth ride again helping to take the stress off your legs and lower back.
Transportation wheels are built into the front frame for ease of movement when placing the bike into its storage area or bringing it out to set up for your workouts.
The design of the bike allows even a tall person 6’7″ and having an inseam of 36.5″ to be able to workout comfortably when the seat is placed in its furthest back setting. Bike come not assembled but generally takes about an hour to assemble.
Exerpeutic 900XL is available at Amazon.
