XtremepowerUS CYCLE 20 Indoor Exercise Bike
Black and red XtremepowerUS CYCLE 20 (96404) is a compact indoor upright exercise bike with a 20-pound chrome flywheel, at a budget price. You will enjoy smooth, quiet and stable riding experience thanks to the belt driven mechanism and the decent flywheel.
It comes with a felt brake pad and a simple to use resistance system that supports as much as 44-pound flywheels. There is a simple LCD display panel that shows the speed, distance, time, calories and scan to switch between these indicators without you doing anything manually. You have the pulse sensors so you can see your heart rate on the screen.
The Cycle 20 has a sturdy steel frame and can carry a maximum user weight of 265 pounds. As a fairly heavy-duty product, it weighs a bit over 60 pounds and measures 36 x 18 x 44 inches as assembled. It includes the integrated transport wheels at the front so you can move it around easily for relocation and storage. You will receive the assembly instructions and simple tools in the package and is rather easy to put together.
It is good for use by very tall and short people as the seat and handles are adjustable. This is a belt driven bike but you can not see the belt as it is completely covered and runs quietly and smoothly. It does the job just fine if you wish to lose weight and keep in shape and stay healthy overall in the comfort of your home. It will help you burn calories and fat or you can use it if you want to warm up before your weights training.
XtremepowerUS is a brand that we know from the garden, outdoor and home products, home and auto tools, pool and accessories and they have recently got into the fitness equipment market. The Cycle 20 model is a low-cost indoor bike for those on a budget. The weighted 20-pound flywheel is more than adequate at this price level, even though the 44 lb flywheel that we saw on the previous XtremepowerUS model that we reviewed earlier would be better.
There is a belt driven mechanism and the resistance system is easy to use. You can adjust the level of challenge or difficulty through the resistance knob in the middle. Both the seat and the handlebars are totally adjustable for people at different heights. We can not see the free water bottle or the holder of the other models of the same brand. The seat seems OK with an ergonomic design and should be comfortable enough during a ten to twenty-minute workout. Despite the minor flaws, this is a nice looking and functional bike that does the job well.
