Seat, Handlebars, and the Pedals
The seat on the Exerpeutic 2500 has an extended backrest which is why it is called a recumbent seat. The backrest is padded and adjustable to 3 different angle positions. The seat can also be horizontally (forward/backward) adjusted; slide it to any place that is suitable for you.
The large AirSoft seat features aerodynamic healthcare technology that allows air to breathe through the fabric so that the comfort it provides is sustainable for longer workouts. The seat’s dimensions are 17 inches long by 13 inches wide and 3.3 inches extra thick.
The Exerpeutic 2500 only has a set of soft handlebars that are designated one on each side of the seat. These are designed to provide support for aggressive pedaling during an intense workout. They are soft, comfortable, and have a design that prevents slippage and blisters in the palms.
The pedals are designed to accommodate barefoot or standard gym shoes. They are anti-skid designed with adjustable safety straps that ensure that the feet are secure.
The desk is what makes this bike different from the regular recumbent bike. The office is made up of ABS plastic material and has dimensions of 24 inches wide by 16 inches long. It could support 44 pounds/20 kg maximum item weight capacity. It’s adjustable between 7 angles, from 0-30 degrees.
The desk can be tilted, be adjusted backward, forward, upward, and downward. The vertical adjustment has eight heights between 36.5 inches and 41 inches. The desk surface features a soft board double armrest that supports the arms while you work on the computer comfortably.
There are also two cup holders for your water bottle or any other item you may need to keep within reach during an exercise/working activity.
2500 belt drive system provides a quiet and smooth operation that is without any noise or vibration. You can utilize the recumbent bike at any time of the day, and the family or the neighbors won’t be disturbed by your activities. It consists of a belt, a pulley, a perimeter weighted flywheel, solid crankset, and the crank arms.
The drive allows you to pedal in reverse if you so desire; in other words, it is bidirectional. Moreover, it is maintenance-free without the need for lubrication or adjustment at any point in time.
The Exerpeutic 2500 comes with a manual magnetic resistance system. It features 14 resistance levels that provide levels of workout challenges that are suitable for anyone that is living a sedentary lifestyle.
The resistance system is smooth and also quiet. The elements (magnetic brake and the flywheel) that generate the resistance do not make any direct contact and therefore, no friction at all. The magnetic brake pad emits a magnetic field around the flywheel when the latter is in particular proximity to generate resistance.
The resistance is adjustable via the tension knob that has the resistance levels 1-14 inscribed on it. Turn clockwise to increase the strength and counterclockwise to decrease it.
The Exerpeutic 2500 does not have a typical console. However, it does have an LCD monitor that’s integrated into the desk. The easy to read LCD monitor tracks time, distance, odometer, speed, calories burned, and SCAN function.
Aside from these, the bike also has a Bluetooth Smart Cloud Fitness app. It allows you to connect with any Android or iOS smartphone via the My Cloud Fitness app to set up workout goals for time, distance, and calories.
The monitor displays all the workouts values one at a time after a few seconds by default, but you will be able to set a preferred workout value to post regularly. The monitor is not backlit, so its readability might be affected by a poorly lit environment.
The Exerpeutic 2500 is easy to store because it has transport wheels at the front base. You can quickly raise it by the rear stabilizer bars and roll it to the storage destination. It is not foldable; however, it doesn’t require too much space. It’s typical storage area dimensions would be 4’4’’ long by 2’1’’.
2500 Assembly and Maintenance
The unit comes partially preassembled; the major components are already attached to the frame. Except for the front, and rear stabilizer bars, the seat and the backrest, the wide handlebars, the desk mast, the desk, and the pedals are to be assembled by you.
