The Exerpeutic 400XL Recumbent Bike is a top-rated and bestselling semi-recumbent folding exercise bike that sells at an affordable price. With this in mind, exercising from home needn’t be expensive or take up too much space. The Exerpeutic 400XL is compact, folds up for secure storage, and comes around $200.
The semi-recumbent refers to the fact that it is a cross between an upright and recumbent bike. Your legs are out in front of you and down on an angle from your body. They are more out in front of you on a recumbent, and with an upright bike, they are below you.
Another impressive aspect of the Exerpeutic 400XL Recumbent Bike is that it is pretty strong for being such a small and inexpensive recumbent bike. The frame is made of tube steel to ensure maximum durability, and it has a user weight limit of 300 pounds, which is very impressive for a recumbent bike with a folding frame.
The 400XL has an easy-to-read 3″ x 1.6″ LCD screen which displays workout stats. Included among these are your Time, Distance, Speed, Calories Burned, and Pulse. 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.
