ProGear 100S Exercise Bike/Indoor Training Cycle Review

ProGear 100S Exercise Bike/Indoor Training Cycle

ProGear 100S is a brand new, sleek and modern design indoor exercise bike, that will give you a great cardio workout, simulating a road bike, thanks to being chain driven and having a cast iron inertia driven 22lbs flywheel with a chrome rim that ensures quiet and smooth pedalling. You can work out at home regularly without having to get out in extreme heat or cold outside, so your workout routine will not rely on weather or time. The nicely cushioned ergonomic seat can be adjusted easily in four directions- forward, back, up and down (4-way seat adjustment) and heights between 5,1” to 6’2” will be accommodated. Blue Progear has a solid steel frame that makes it feel rather heavy duty so it doesn’t feel flimsy at all and weighs 59.7 pounds, measures 36 x 29 x 9 inches and can carry a maximum user weight of up to 250 pounds. The U-shaped stabilisers also help keep the bike in place- minimal movement when you’re cycling. LCD computer (that works on two AAA batteries) has the readouts of distance, time, speed, calories, scan and heart rate / pulse through the sensors on both handles so you will get to monitor and stay within your zone.

Resistance on the Progear 100S is adjustable through the easy to dial tension adjustment knob so you can challenge yourself as much as you want or take it easy at lower resistance levels. The foot pedals are larger than normal and include toe cages for security and that additional forward leg thrust and you can cycle without your feet slipping and in case of an emergency you can use the top down emergency brake. You can comfortably listen to music or watch TV without any interruption thanks to the precision balanced flywheel that ensures very quiet operation. It will be perfectly fine to stand up when you’re riding the bike- simulating an uphill road experience,  as Progear 100S is built quite solid and sturdy and you can also pedal in both directions comfortably- forward and reverse pedalling. There is even a water bottle holder so you don’t have to get off the bike and interrupt your session and keep hydrated at all times. This is a rather heavy duty bike for the price and is not particularly light but includes transport wheels so you can move it around very easily. It is easy to assemble as you will get it unassembled like all the other fitness equipment online, and includes one year limited warranty by the manufacturer when and if you encounter any problems.
