3G Cardio has always been on the forefront of fitness machines. Because of that, it is no wonder that they make one of the best upright bikes you can find on the market at the moment. We are talking about 3G Cardio Elite UB and today we are going to show you why this bike is among the best. If you are looking for a good high end model for your home gym, stay with us. Elite UB might just be what you are looking for.
One of the most important aspects of any exercise bike is its frame. If the frame is not good enough, the rest of the components and features won’t really matter even if they are among the best. Luckily for us 3G Cardio Elite UB comes with a very robust frame. They have used the all familiar H pattern that is partially covered by the flywheel housing. The main beam which supports the control module is made of really thick tubing thus ensuring that you can really lean on those handles should you want or need to. The seat is fairly ergonomic in nature and fully adjustable. You can set it up to perfectly match your stature and height thanks to both vertical and horizontal adjustments. Although the seat is padded, it belongs to more traditional bicycle seats. In other words, some fatigue is to be expected during a prolonged exercise. Lastly, the pedals are counterbalanced and come with adjustable belts.
When it comes to features, 3G Cardio Elite UB has a whole lot to offer. Before we get to that, lets just cover the core stuff first. The flywheel on this bike is impressive in a sense that it is one of the smoothest and quietest you can find at the moment. Since the computer controls the resistance, you will find 16 manual resistance levels. On top of that, you have 12 workout presets, 4 user profiles, 3 heart rate modes and more. Speaking of heart rate monitoring, you can either use the built in sensors on the handlebars or a wireless chest strap. The display is one of the most intuitive ones we have seen. It is large, easy to read and well laid out. Despite there being quite a few features, the controls used to navigate all of that are extremely simple. You basically have a couple of buttons and one knob. You would be amazed just how easy it is to use such limited controls.
Finding a good higher end upright bike can be confusing if you don’t know exactly what kind of features you’re after. Bikes in this particular segment are fairly optimized for serious fitness. 3G Cardio Elite UB is a bit different in that regard. While it’s still a very serious piece of fitness machinery, it is a bit more forgiving. In other words, you are getting all the right features but in away that is friendly to beginners. Overall, 3G Cardio Elite UB ranks pretty high in our book. Chances are it might be the type of bike you’re looking for.
