One of the newest models from Exerpeutic, the Magnetic Folding Upright Bike 500 XLS shares some similarities with its predecessor but does come with several improvements over the older version. The bike is designed to support weight capacity of up to 400 lbs. Also, its heavy duty design and high durability will provide excellent workout results. It has 20% more steel than its predecessor for increased durability.
It’s very easy to get off and on the bike which makes for a more effective and comfortable workout session. The large comfortable cushioned seat is ideal for people of any size, since its easily adjustable to fit 5 feet 1-inch to 6 feet 5-inch user heights.
Just like the previous model, the Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike 500 XLS with pulse FOO XLS does offer a compact folding design which makes it perfect for anyone who doesn’t have the luxury of a proper workout space. It’s one of the very few upright bikes that come with an affordable price, but without compromising the quality.
One of the best things about the bike is the handlebar which offers multiple grips, thus supporting different workout postures. The bike comes equipped with an 8 level magnetic tension control system for easier or more challenging workout, and an easy-to-read LCD display that indicates calories burned, speed, distance, time, scan, odometer, and pulse.
Like most magnetic exercise bikes, the 500 XLS features an efficient belt drive system involving a heavy-duty V-belt, which is resistant to stretching and basically maintenance free. Last but not the least, the bike features a 3-piece high torque cranking system that provides a smooth and consistent pedaling motion. The larger pedal design with safety strap prevents any foot slippage while working out.
