Confidence Fitness Folding Stationary Upright Exercise X Bike Review
If you’re looking for a reliable stationary bike but don’t have enough room for a gym-sized machine, then the Confidence Fitness space saving X bike may just be the ticket. It offers the same physical benefits of your regular gym equipment, but can be easily folded and stowed in a closet after use.
Despite the small footprint, this exercise bike comes with adjustable magnetic resistance system for challenging workouts and equipped with a multi-function computer that tracks and displays your fitness stats. It’s also made with industry-standard materials to support larger users and promote a longer service life.
A closer look at the Confidence Fitness Space Saving X Bike
Ride to your health
The Confidence Fitness X Bike was built with space-saving utility in mind, but still manages to provide a great workout no matter your fitness level. It will let you target different muscle groups in the lower body including your hips, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, and calves, and engage your abs, obliques, and core all at the same time.
Riding the upright exercise bike also does so much for the body’s cardiovascular system, which means that your heart and lungs will greatly benefit as well. And with multiple magnetic resistance levels to choose from, you can properly warm-up and cool-down as needed.
Fold up and go
Space is at a premium for the average Joe, that’s why Confidence Fitness designed the X Bike to help save more floor area, not take more of it. When folded, the unit measures a mere 11.8 by 51.6 inches (L x H) so you can simply tuck it in a cabinet or in a corner after use.
At just a little over 37 pounds, it’s fairly easy to move around the house. The light weight however, doesn’t automatically translate to cheap product quality. In fact, the bike’s made with a heavy-duty steel frame that can support users up to 220 pounds (100 kg).
Cycle with comfort
As standard, the folding stationary bike features a multi-function LCD display that shows the current speed, time elapsed, distance covered, calories burned, and heart rate. Your vitals are monitored by the pulse function that’s built into the handlebars, while the bars themselves are curved to suit different riding styles.
If you like riding for extended periods, then you’ll also love the generously padded seat of the X Bike. The seat has an adjustable riding height too, which can be changed from 28.7 inches all the way to 33.9 inches.
Safe to use, easy on ears
This exercise bike is safe to use, given that you follow the basic safety rules outlined in the accompanying user’s manual. But for added peace of mind, the manufacturers also fitted the non-skid pedals with adjustable straps so you can go fast with no worries.
Speaking of fast, the pedal movement is smooth on all resistance levels, which contributes to the unit’s quiet-running nature. This means that you can enjoy a noise-free workout while enjoying some home entertainment, like watching TV or listening to an audiobook.
