Weslo Pursuit R 1.2 Upright Exercise Bike Review

Weslo Pursuit R 1.2 Upright Cycle via Amazon

Weslo Pursuit R 1.2 is an easy to use, versatile and modern upright bike with a solid steel frame, large LCD display and a padded comfortable vertically adjustable seat, designed to work both your lower and upper body (for a complete body workout), to help you burn calories, lose weight, enhance your heart rate, get in shape and get fitter and healthier overall with a double movement workout without leaving your home. It has a momentum inertia-enhanced washboard flywheel so you can pedal smoothly and tension level is adjustable so you can arrange the hardship and challenge of exercise. You may view the calories burned, time exercised and distance traveled on the digital LCD monitor so you can monitor your progress but it doesn’t include the pulse rate. It is quite easy to assemble with the tools that come in the box and ride and the maximum user weight it can carry is 250 pounds so although we can say it is suitable for people of all ages, more so the not very tall and not too large people should consider it. Easy grip handles help keep you safe when you are working on your upper body and the anti-slip rubber feet caps offer stability, height adjustable seat flexibility and comfort.

Grey and black Weslo Pursuit R 1.2 weighs 44 pounds and measures 53 x 18.5 x 40 inches when assembled. It comes with a 90-day limited warranty by the manufacturer. With any fitness equipment or working out at a gym the results will depend on the intensity, duration and frequency of the exercise and how well or healthy you eat and if you have any relevant health problems please ask your health professional before starting a workout program. One of the customers complained about the smaller size of the unit (it is not for very large or very tall adults) and the way they had to lean over to hold the handles to work their upper body and the resistance doesn’t get very high for some people. You do not have to use the handles if you will just be working your legs but they will move anyway during your pedalling. Seat is not replaceable as it is designed only for this bike model but you’re welcome to use a seat cover if you feel the need to make it more comfy for longer sessions (seat is a little hard). For the price tag you’ll see on the Amazon product page, this is quite a decent entry level bike for those that want something compact, solid and simple and something a bit more multifunctional and versatile than a regular indoor bike by letting you work and shape your arms and burn more calories as well.
