BulbHead As Seen On TV Slim Cycle 2-in-1 Stationary Bike
BulbHead Original Slim Cycle “As Seen On TV” is a two-in-one stationary exercise bike that combines the recumbent bike and upright bike for a great cardiovascular training. You’ll enjoy a very intense but low impact cardiovascular workout in both positions.
And you can either use it to burn calories or as a fitness equipment for warming up before your weights training. You shall sit on its large and comfortable 2.5″ seat with a memory foam backrest for support and lose weight without much burden on your knees or joints and feel relaxed. You can change it to the upright position and get an intense workout. With the attached resistance bands you can strengthen and tone your arm muscles- both biceps and triceps when riding the pedals.
You have eight levels of magnetic resistance by turning the tension dial to adjust the level of challenge to what you can handle at the time. It has a large and easy to use digital LCD display panel with the indicators to keep you motivated. It shows the distance, speed, calories, ODOmeter (mileage or total miles you rode) and heart rate when you put your hands on the heart rate monitor. Please press the Mode button to scroll thru different indicators.
Slim Cycle has a foldable design and you can fold it and roll it away under your bed or in your closet. With this stationary 2-in-1 Bike they actually promise twice the amount of calories burned in half the time. We’re not sure if this would be hundred percent accurate but by involving both your legs and arms, you are certainly burning more calories and strengthening and toning your overall body. And the resistance training for upper body will not be like working out with a variety of weights at a gym.
The seat can be adjusted for height by unscrewing the triangular knob underneath and people that are between 4’11” and 6’4″ tall can use it comfortably. It has a robust frame and can hold a total user weight of 300 pounds. You can get results in just 10-15 minutes a day as long as you have a healthy diet and relatively active lifestyle. The BulbHead Slim Cycle weighs 39 pounds and 6 ounces, measures 42 x 21.5 x 43 inches as assembled and 52 x 21.5 x 22 inches as folded.
It requires some assembly but shouldn’t be hard as long as you follow the instructions carefully. You can adjust the band resistance up and down by pushing the band through the handle and locking ring. Please note that only one side is adjustable and you can’t do it on one side, you should try the other side. The seat is much more comfortable with a 2.5″ superior cushion than the other regular seat bikes. You can download the Echelon app on your Android or iPhone to gain access to 6 scenic rides and 8 on demand classes. You can read, watch a video or listen to music while you’re cycling as it runs with zero noise. The seat handles or the handlebars are not adjustable. Despite the very small negatives you’re getting what you pay for- pretty decent value for the dollar.
