The Exerpeutic 400XL Recumbent Bike is an affordable, top-rated, bestselling, semi-recumbent folding exercise bike. With this in mind, exercising from home needn’t be expensive or use too much space. The Exerpeutic 400XL is compact, folds up for secure storage, and comes at around $200.
The semi-recumbent refers to the fact that it is a cross between an upright and a recumbent bike. For example, on a recumbent bike, your legs are in front of you, and with an upright bike, they are below you. Therefore, using the 400XL, your legs are in front of you and down at an angle from your body.
Another impressive aspect of the Exerpeutic 400XL Recumbent Bike is that it is pretty strong for being such a small and inexpensive recumbent bike. In addition, the steel tube frame ensures maximum durability and has a user weight limit of 300 pounds, which is impressive for a recumbent bike with a folding frame.
The 400XL has an easy-to-read 3″ x 1.6″ LCD fitness monitor which displays workout stats. These are your Time, Distance, Speed, Calories Burned, and Pulse. In addition, there’s also an Odometer and a scan function. If you select the latter, the monitor will rotate through the stats displaying one at a time, with each staying on the screen for 6 seconds.
