Producing some of the biggest selling bikes on the market, Exerpeutic is an extremely well renowned brand for budget fitness equipment. We review a range of Exerpeutic Bikes here.
Their popularity stems from their keen prices, normally much less than $200. Don’t think that this means that their bikes are not well built. On the contrary, for the price they are often the best in the market. Reviewers often give Exerpeutic Bikes outstanding scores in consumer tests. One model, the Exerpeutic 400XL recumbent bike has over 500 reviews with 350 being 5 stars!
These bikes are generally comfortable, well made and run very quietly. With the low cost does come a few compromises, you won’t find many features on these bikes, warranties are short and some of the cosmetic components can be lower quality.
Pros and Cons of the Exerpeutic Bike Range
Low Cost: If you are looking for a basic product to burn a few calories while watching TV these are perfect.
Compact: without bulky frames, to keep costs down, Exerpeutic only build in what is essential for a safe comfortable workout. You will find these bikes easy to store, and they won’t dominate your living space.
Quiet running: All Exerpeutic bikes run with well balanced flywheels driven by belt drives. Resistance is applied using magnetic force and not friction. All these combine to make their bikes exceptionally quiet for this price range.
Components Non essential components are on the cheaper side. By putting the money into a quality drive train there have been some sacrifices. The console readings are for ‘guide lines’ only and not partuclulary precise.
Warranty while acceptable for a sub $200 bike, 1 year limited warranty is not long. However few people have reported complaints about the service.
For affordable, good quality exercise equipment that won’t break down on you the Exerpeutic Range seems to have it all. Read all our Exerpeutic Bike Reviews here.
