Features of the Marcy Upright Mag Bike
The Marcy Upright Mag Bike makes the most of its simple features to give you an optimal workout machine. It is extremely user friendly, which works to make your exercise routine feel less like a chore and more like an enjoyable part of your daily routine. Our team spent several hours reviewing this bike and can confidently highlight the following features.
Customizable Resistance Tension
The bike gives you the ability to easily switch between approximately ten different resistance settings. That gives you the ability to make your workout as hard or as easy as you prefer.
You can also switch between settings as your workout progresses, which allows you to simulate mountain climbing or biking down a straight path before coming to a stop as your workout ends. The tension control button conveniently sits on the center console of the bike.
Easy to Read Personal Computer
One of the elements that can enhance your workout is having the ability to track your progress. The personal computer that sits in the center of the handlebars makes this possible when you use recumbent bike. You have the ability to monitor the distance that you travel and the calories that you burn during a workout. You can also keep a close eye on your biking speed and the time you are spending on your workout.
Having pedals that allow your feet to stay in place during a bike workout is an essential feature that you need in an exercise bike. Each of the pedals on this bike give you straps that work to hold your feet on the pedals, regardless of how fast you manage to pedal the bike. You can customize the straps to fit as snugly or as loosely against your feet as you desire.
During a bike workout, you spend a significant amount of time on the bike seat. When that element is uncomfortable, it can throw your entire workout off course. The bike addresses this issue by providing a padded seat that you are able to easily move up or down to create a comfortable seat that will not interfere with your workout routine. You can also move the seat up or down to accommodate your personal height.
The bike gives you one of the smoothest rides you could expect to receive from an exercise bike. It features a magnetic resistance element that seamlessly moves through the resistance process without you noticing a change in the level of bike performance. The pedals move in a fashion that emits little to no noise while you move, which helps you maintain focus on the workout at hand.
