Fitness machines are rarely built for comfort. Sure, comfort is a pretty big part of any fitness device, but in most cases you are looking at something that barely meets the requirements to even be called comfortable. That is not the case with Exerpeutic 4000. It is one of the most comfortable and capable recumbent bikes out there. Today we are going to give you our opinion on this bike and show you what this machine is all about. Lets get started.
One quick glance at Exerpeutic 4000 will reveal that it is not like the others. It is all about the frame and the seat when it comes to design. Exerpeutic has obviously made it their mission to keep you in that seat as long as possible without you experiencing any fatigue.They did this by applying their Air Soft padding in a number of places. Not only do you get a very comfortable seat, but they also included a pair of armrests which feature that same padding. When it comes to the frame, it is more or less familiar. We have that standard H pattern frame made of proper metal tubing. Stability wise, this thing is pretty strong. You won’t notice any movement even if you go hard at those pedals. Another point that needs to be made is how lightweight Exerpeutic 4000 is. It was designed to be easily moved around by using the wheels mounted on the front of the frame. In that regard, this bike is pretty mobile.
The main feature of Exerpeutic 4000 is that padded seat. We have already spent some time talking about it, but this is what separates this bike from the others. The whole thing about the padding has to do with how it was designed. Air Soft padding is basically full of air pockets which should reduce fatigue by a large margin. Aside from that, we have a simple, utilitarian but functional control module which is packed with all the right features. You have magnetic resistance management which adds plenty of accuracy to your workout. The package includes 24 levels or resistance which you can access manually or through any of 12 preset settings. On top of that, you can program 4 of your own. Heart rate monitoring is also present. The location of sensors is pretty interesting. but adds to the whole comfort theme. For a robust, simple and efficient recumbent bike, Exerpeutic 4000 is fairly priced.
Exerpeutic 4000 might be considered a niche recumbent bike. It does everything you would want one of these fitness machines to do, but it also adds a bit extra. All of that padding makes it a perfect choice for anyone who has issues with sitting on hard surfaces for whatever reason. From a recumbent bike point of view, it’s great. Resistance is easily controlled, the flywheel is smooth and controls are easy to use. At this point it’s definitely one of the better models on the market, especially in this price range. Exerpeutic did an awesome job with this one.
