XTERRA FB150 Folding Exercise Bike
Silver Xterra FB150 is a compact and foldable exercise bike for home use. It has an average score of 4.8 / 5 stars out of 21 customers’ ratings on the day of this review. It is a good option for you if you want to burn calories, lose weight and get in shape but you don’t have much space in your flat.
The Xterra Bike has a sturdy and durable X-frame that can carry a maximum user weight of 225 pounds and folds down to only 16.75 x 18 x 50.5 inches when you’re not using it and roll it on its transport wheels to free up space.
The FB150 weighs 32 pounds and measures 31.5 x 18 x 45.3 inches. The 3.3-pound precision balanced flywheel has the frictionless magnetic resistance and silent belt drive system you can pedal smoothly and quietly without needing to do any maintenance. It is a very quiet bike and you won’t disturb people in the house or your neighbors downstairs.
You can see your exercise data on the easy to use and read console, as it offers you feedback with stats like time, distance, calories, speed, and pulse. There is also the Scan function that lets you see these indicators one by one without you having to press a button. The handlebar mounted pulse sensors are connected to the 2” x 1” size LCD console that runs on two AA batteries which are included in the package.
Pedals have the anti-slip surfaces and adjustable straps for security and a more efficient workout. And the three-piece pedal crank adds to its durability. It offers a total of eight manual resistance levels via the large tension dial for a bit of challenge when you can handle.
It is a comfortable exercise bike overall with the large and ergonomic contoured and thick-padded seat and multi-grip padded handles, both of which offer you support and comfort during lengthy workouts. People that are between 4’10” and 5’10” can ride this bike comfortably as the seat can be set pretty low, close to the pedals.
Warranty on the Xterra FB150 is 90 days for the parts and one year for the frame. It is easy enough to put together in less than half an hour with the clear instructions and simple tools in the box. The resistance knob can make a bit of a cracking noise when turning. The seat is comfortable enough and definitely better than average at this price level.
The LCD display doesn’t have an Off button and only shows the simple stats so you can’t expect extra features like on the bikes that you see at the gyms. The XTERRA FB150 Exercise Bike is ideal for those that want a sturdy and functional compact bike with an ergonomic and folding design at a budget price. It will give you a decent low impact cardiovascular workout in the comfort of your home.
