SportsArt C572r Commercial Series Recumbent Cycle
The C572r is a beautiful recumbent bike that puts most other bikes to shame. It is meant to be a commercial recumbent bike, but is not priced so high that you would have to own a gym to own one. Since it is built for gyms it will have no problem standing up to heavy daily use by the whole family and supports a maximum user weight of 500 pounds. The frame is solid with extra support to ensure there is no movement. The seat is easily adjustable and has water bottle holders on either side. The bottom of the seat is padded and contoured for a longer, more comfortable ride. The back of the seat is made to be extra breathable and keep you dry, while remaining comfortable. The console looks like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it is actually fairly easy to use. It does not have that many programs, which is somewhat beneficial because every program is available at the touch of a button. The console displays everything you need to know about your workout and more without having to scroll through a bunch of screens. This bike does not come with an integrated MP3 player, but there is an option to add an entertainment bracket. The console does have a 3 speed fan and the entire thing is self-generated which save energy and keeps you from tripping over cords in your weight room.
