Velocity Exercise Magnetic Upright Exercise Bike Review

Velocity Exercise Magnetic Upright Exercise Bike

Velocity CHB-UNITRO is a recently released stylish and premium looking and budget priced, stationary, magnetic vertical fitness bike with a portable design- compact size and small footprint but very large levellers and stabilisers on feet so there is no shaking or wobbling and the bike feels safe and stable during your workout and runs quietly and smoothly- a solid workout platform that is ideal for home use if you’re aiming to increase your metabolism, burn calories and fat and get in shape. It has a steel frame and large and stylish control panel with a blue LED-backlit screen that shows the regular indicators like calories, speed, distance, time as well as the ODOmeter, pulse rate (via the heart rate sensors on handles) with Body Fat, Recovery, Start/Stop, Enter, Up and Down buttons, manual P2-P10, and random user U1-U4. LCD display doesn’t require batteries to operate as it works on electricity- have the bike near a power outlet if you wish to monitor your progress on the display. It is sent unassembled in a secure box but you can easily put it together on your own if you read the clear assembly instructions provided.

Although it is a compact unit it includes a unique DMC- Drum Magnetic Control System with a decent flywheel and a single piece crank for you to have a true road feel and you can adjust 8 levels of challenge or hardship through the resistance knob underneath the sporty and adjustable saddle, so there is no plateauing in performance over time and there is no burden or heavy impact on your joints or knees. Ergonomic and comfy pedals are larger than average in size, are anti-slip, textured and cushioned and your feet will stay safe thanks to the solid foot straps. Velocity Bike has a beautiful design for such a low priced exercise bike, looks pretty in grey and orange, weighs 54 pounds with a maximum user weight capacity of 250 pounds and has the dimensions of 38 x 39 x 50 inches as assembled (box dimensions are 31 x 11 x 24 inches) so you can keep it in a small corner of your house. It doesn’t have a foldable design but has transport wheels for even easier relocation and storage. People of different heights- very short and very tall can easily use it as the seat is also adjustable vertically (not horizontally) and the distance between seat and padded handles is reasonable. With its low price tag and what it offers in terms of value for dollar- a reliable, functional and durable product it is good for those that want to purchase an exercise bike for being fit and healthy but the bikes on the market are out of their reach.
