It has a small but functional LCD monitor that works with alcaline batteries for displaying the regular indicators like calories, speed, distance, time and pulse rate through the heart rate sensors that help with a precise reading and they will help you monitor your progress. Comfortable padded seat is conveniently adjustable via the adjustment handle underneath the seat and the pedal straps that are there for your pedalling security and the frame are also adjustable for your comfort during your workout session.What we like most about this product is its solid build quality for the price and how it works quietly and smoothly. Gross weight is 65 pounds and measures 56 x 28.5 x 43 Inches, does not have a foldable design and we can’t see any transport wheels on the photos so it will pretty much need a fixed spot wherever you want to exercise in your house.
Sunny SF-RB4601 is a low impact kind of exercise machine that is designed with reducing injury risks in mind and that focuses mostly your lower body and core but not upper body as your arms are not moving but as you will be burning calories you will be losing fat from upper part of your body as well- when you lose weight and tone up it will be on different parts of your body. User Manual is quite nice and clear in proper English unlike many of the similar made in China products with Chinglish manuals. Unlike the vertical exercise bikes recumbent bikes haven’t been around for too long but they have been quite popular with the added ergonomic advantage with a more correct frame bio-mechanically and handles so it is easier to get on and off and is comfortable to exercise with. You may get sore hands and arms by leaning forward while riding like you do on an upright bike and if you have a lower back problem it won’t be that enjoyable, whereas you sit into the frame on recumbent bikes and in line with the pedals and you will feel more stable with the low centre of gravity and your glutes on your butt will benefit from this type of bike and seat is also larger and with thicker padding meaning you will be a lot more comfy sitting on it.
