MaxKare Under Desk Magnetic Mini Bike is a stationary multi-use cardiovascular fitness unit with an LCD display for exercising legs and arms in the comfort of your home or office. The average customer rating is 4.9 out of 5 stars by 10 users on the day of this post release, which is a rather high customer satisfaction score.
You’ll get the resistance bands that you see in the photos included in the package. It is very easy to use this multifunctional unit that offers 3 different ways to work out, including exercising the arms by putting it on a desk, normal cycling by putting it on the ground at the right angle as you sit on a chair or couch, or by using the resistance rope to work on your upper body while you’re cycling. This way you will get a decent, low-impact whole body workout. By the low-impact we mean that the burden on your knees or joints are minimized.
Please note that this is an under-desk bike and you can certainly use it under your desk while you are working in the office or studying at home. It weighs only 18.5 pounds with the dimensions of 23.6 x 21.8 x 12.6 inches- is fairly compact and portable. Please check the dimensions of your desk before purchasing this unit. It is not a foldable bike but with a convenient handle design it is easy to carry as you lift and relocate it easily. You have 16 levels of real resistance for different difficulty or challenge levels from easy (warm-up) to very challenging (resistance training) depending on how much you can push at the time.
We recommend that you change the resistance during your session to promote more calorie burn. It works very quietly and you will not disturb people in the house or office. It gives you the opportunity to work out whenever and wherever you want. You have the anti-slip pedals and the anti-slip bottom with a protective pad for your security, to keep your feet in place and to prevent the mini bike from moving around. The tubes at the bottom will stick to the floor firmly to avoid any undesirable wobbling or sliding. And you have a safe, stable, comfortable and smooth workout.
The digital LCD-backlit monitor gives you the regular indicators of calories burned, current speed, distance traveled, time exercised to help you monitor your progress. You can reset the display by pressing the button longer. You need a No.7 alkaline battery for the display panel and this is included in the box. It is super easy to assemble by anyone with or without the skills in just 15 minutes. You just need to assemble the pedals and a couple of other pieces and you will be ready to go. It is quite a stable multi-functional under-desk bike that works quietly and seems to offer great value for the dollar overall. It will save you on time (getting to gym), space (compact design) and money (gym fees).
