It has a large LCD display panel with console functions that are totally programmable along with more than 17 preset training programs and 16 levels of resistance for varying levels of challenge. There are built-in pulse rate sensors on the dual set comfy to hold foam padded ergonomic handles and a heart rate monitor is available on the display as well as the usual indicators like calories, time, distance, speed and rpm, watt control and you will achieve great results and efficiency without putting too much effort in. It has a solid plastic and stainless steel construction. Body Champ has more than two decades of history and is known by pro athletes and ordinary customers as one of the leaders in the health, wellness and fitness equipment industry with products including exercise bikes, inversion tables, treadmills, massage chairs and more.
Body Champ BRB5890 looks nice in black and silver and has a rather modern design, weighs 76 pounds, maximum user weight is specified as 350 pounds and it measures 59 x 24 x 43 inches. Judging by the reviews it is easy to assemble in about an hour to 1.5 hours if you have someone helping you as the instructions are well written and clear with diagrams plus the tools labelled to be easily identified and photos (flywheel is already preassembled). With its open frame design the seat is adjusted horizontally to accommodate different users and the bike seems to work well overall. Pulse sensors are located on the top handles by the display panel and not on those by the seat. Magnetic flywheel is slightly noisy when you are moving from one resistance level to another and you will hear very little noise that is similar to a light fan sound when pedalling so you shouldn’t have any problems when you have people sleeping in your house or with neighbours downstairs. This is a low impact exercise machine but you may feel a little more impact than some of the very expensive recumbent bikes due to the positioning of the backrest and the seat isn’t very comfortable and you can use a cushion. It would be a little hard to find a similar priced bike with similar features and build quality and it is good value for money overall- solid, sturdy, heavy, smooth and quiet.
