Exerpeutic has a long track record of providing great value for the money fitness machines. Their LX7 perfectly represents this claim. Not only is it one of the most competitive indoor cycling bikes in its market segment, but it also irons out some flaws we generally see with this type of bikes. Today we are going to show you exactly what you can expect from LX7 and why it is worth checking out. Lets get to it.
The design of LX7 can be a bit confusing. On one hand it is obviously rough around the edges, but on the other it looks very refined. To elaborate a bit further, it packs a very solid frame but one that is devoid of all of the usual details. Leveling screws are completely exposed, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it tends to look a bit raw. The seat is mounted on a rail making it fully adjustable both vertically and horizontally. Exerpeutic went with an ergonomic seat design which has proven to be fairly comfortable. Granted it comes with almost no padding at all but the contour they went with appears to work just fine. If aesthetics are important to you, you will be glad to know that Exerpeutic LX7 is one of the better looking bikes out there. Sure, looks depend on personal taste but black and blue color scheme generally tends to work on anything including static bikes. Overall, LX7 inspires confidence by being sturdy enough but also lightweight enough.
In terms of features, Exerpeutic LX7 offers few things which are definitely worth mentioning. We have a 40lb flywheel that runs smooth and silent. Resistance is variable and can be adjusted by turning a knob underneath the handlebars. Speaking of which, Exerpeutic has done one thing which is apparently hard to figure out for some brands. Instead of mounting the small display unit at the very top of the handlebars, they have mounted it up close. This way it doesn’t get in the way as you go through various grips. Display unit in question will show you all the relevant stats and allow you to track your progress. Compared to more advanced bikes, LX7 may lack some finesse but it definitely closes the gap to a point where you really have to ask yourself whether or not the added price is worth it. Even with limited features, it is a great bang for the buck value.
At the end of the day Exerpeutic LX7 delivers a net positive performance. So much so that it’s one of the best bang for the buck values out there at the moment. We can definitely recommend it to both beginners and those who are looking to upgrade from a more basic model. In terms of reliability and durability, LX7 inspires plenty of confidence. The fact that it comes with a display unit which doesn’t get in the way is pretty important for those who like to go through various grips. Overall, Exerpeutic LX7 definitely deserves a time of your day.
