PLENY Upright Stationary Exercise Bike with Arm Exercise Resistance Bands Review

PLENY Upright Exercise Bike with Arm Resistance Bands

The brand new release Pleny Iindoor Exercise Bike is a stationary vertical/upright model that takes little space with its compact and foldable design. You can enjoy a low-impact aerobic cardio workout on it in the comfort of your home and whenever you want.

Despite being a compact and budget priced model it includes a phone holder and the resistance bands to work on your upper body- left and right arms. It has a foldable and space saving upright design but is still solid and durable with a relatively heavy-duty build that enables it to have a user weight capacity of 260 pounds.

Pleny Bike has an ergonomic design overall, with the very dense foam padding on the seat, the 29” minimum of leg- inseam length and the very comfy backrest. The seat height can be adjusted easily with the height adjuster below the seat that you see in the photo. Your back will be supported very nicely through your lengthy and hard sessions and your body will be stabilized.

There is a small red and black LCD display that works with 2 x AAA batteries, with the usual stats to keep you motivated and on target: Distance, time, calories, speed and heart rate as there are hand pulse sensors on both handles. You can do your arm exercises with the included add-on resistance bands while you’re pedaling, so you have a total body workout.

It offers flex adjustment of the magnetic resistance to 16 levels for different challenges. Most lower or medium priced exercise bikes have 8 levels of resistance. But this is done through the tension dial in the middle, and not automatically through the LCD display. You can cycle smoothly and quietly without disturbing anyone in the house or your neighbors. You can even put your iPad onto the smart phone and tablet holder at the front.

It will help you keep fit and in shape, help with muscle toning and strengthening and gain stamina and endurance. The shipping weight for the whole thing is just over 48 pounds and it measures 43.7 x 37.8 x 16 inches as assembled. It has an easily and conveniently foldable design and transportation wheels and a folding lock pin. And you can fold it into an even more compact size and keep it in a good corner. You have the anti-slip, raised and textured pedals with safety straps that will keep your feet in place.

This is a bi-directional bike and you can cycle smoothly forward and backward to target slightly different muscles. Your heels will not knock the crankset thanks to the curved crank arm. And you will see a reinforced bolt just near the pedal so the pedal will not become loose. This is for adults up to 6’3” tall and your leg or inseam length must be at least 29 inches, so it will not be suitable for anyone shorter than that. Pleny Upright Exercise Bike is a decent quality product, offered with a 12-month warranty by the manufacturer.
