ProGear 225 Foldable Magnetic Upright Bike Review

ProGear 225 Foldable Magnetic Upright Bike

ProGear 225 is a compact and folding design magnetic upright bike for a great cardiovascular workout at home, with a dual transmission flywheel for more resistance and challenge and a three piece cranking system for a smooth and consistent pedaling motion.

It runs quietly thanks to the V-belt drive and the balanced flywheel so you can comfortably listen to your music or watch TV. ProGear is portable and easily transportable and has a space saving design when it is folded, weighs 34.8 pounds and measures 19 x 17.5 x 53 inches and almost half the size as folded and despite being a compact bike it can carry a total user weight of up to 220 pounds, which is quite all right for a budget priced bike and anyone that is not too heavy and that is between 5’1” and 6’ tall can use it just fine with the adjustable seat with the ergonomic and comfy contoured seat.

There will be no wobbling or tipping during your session as it has a sturdy build and adjustable stabilizers on its legs. You even have the heart pulse through the hand pulse sensors that you see on the easy to read LCD display panel (works on 2 x AAA batteries) that also includes the usual vital statistics like time elapsed, calories, distance traveled, speed, scan and ODOmeter for total distance traveled since the assembly. You will know your heart rate through the heart rate monitor during the exercise so you can burn more fat and calories. There is a small accessory holder so you can put your smartphone or other small items during your workout.

For a bike with such a low price tag, this one has quite large and comfy pedals with fancy foot straps to lock your feet in place so there will not be any slipping during your workout. ProGear 225 is really suitable for living rooms with limited space and you can fold it to half its size and wheel it on its transport wheels easily and will even fit in a closet easily, is good for small home and apartment use.

You have a tension dial for 8 levels of magnetic resistance so you can move between challenging and easy, depending on your mood or what you can handle at the time. It even has a year of warranty by Paradigm Health and Wellness for any problems that you may encounter. By any of the ProGear Fitness products- ellipticals, treadmills, exercise bikes or training cycles, you will stay fit and spend less. Paradigm is one of the major provider of health and fitness products under the very well known brands like Ironman Fitness, IronKids Fitness, Ironman Inversion, WorkFit, Exerpeutic, Fitness Reality and Progear Fitness.
