PLENY Foldable Upright Bike with Backrest
Blue PLENY Foldable Stationary Upright Bike with Backrest has a sturdy construction with a heavy duty steel frame and a user weight capacity of 300 pounds for cardiovascular/aerobic exercise at home or in the office. It has a nicely padded ergonomic backrest and a large and comfy wider seat to support your body and back during your long workout sessions.
You have the standard indicators like distance, speed, calories, time, ODOmeter, Scan and pulse via the heart sensors on the brand new design LCD display panel that is easy to read and understand. You do not have to press anything to see each of these stats as they will be shown on screen one after the other every 9 seconds or so if you press Scan.
This specific Pleny Bike model has 16 levels of magnetic resistance rather than 8 that you see on many other budget models for varying levels of challenge. We recommend that you start out slowly at a lower resistance and move up as you go along and can handle more. And varying levels of resistance and speed during your session will help you burn more fat and calories.
It has a folding and locking mechanism and you can easily fold it through the middle and move it to a convenient part of your house. Despite being a compact foldable bike it can support a maximum user weight of 300 pounds with its upgraded heavy duty support tube under the seat. The comfortable saddle can be adjusted for height and the distance from the handles and display panel, to accommodate very short and tall people.
It is suitable for home use and especially small apartments or home gyms with restricted amount of space. It has a high-end curved crank arm to prevent kicking during pedaling and a textured pedals with the security straps. So your feet will stay in place during your workout. Pleny Bike is a decent quality fitness unit with a simple modern design and basic options. It is something that will do the job well, without the extra bells and whistles.
You can put your smartphone or tablet on the holder below the display and hold the handle at different positions. You’ll need to do only simple assembly which shouldn’t take more than half an hour. It is offered with one year of limited warranty by the Hong Kong based Pleny Sport and Fitness, which is commonly known as Energy Plus.
They design and manufacture a variety of home and indoor fitness products including spin bikes, exercise bikes, treadmills, steppers and more for all ages and fitness levels.
