Goplus is the type of brand that mostly covers the affordable segment of the market. However, that doesn’t mean that their products are bad. On the contrary, Goplus knows what budget users need and how to meet those needs. Goplus Magnet recumbent bike we are looking at today is easily one of the best affordable recumbent bikes out there. It is simple, reliable and delivers exactly the kind of performance you would want. Lets take a look.
The simplicity of this Goplus bike is apparent no matter where you look. The entire thing is more or less designed around minimalism. They also did something rather interesting with the frame. Where most other brands are opting for an adjustable seat, Goplus took a different route. The frame on this model feature that same H pattern, however the connecting bar is actually adjustable. In essence, you are adjusting the length of the entire frame instead of adjusting the seat. This has its benefits as well as drawbacks. In terms of materials, Goplus went with decent tubing that holds everything together with erase. Then again, Goplus Magnet is a rather lightweight bike. Comfort wise, the seat offered is alright. It’s not the most ergonomic thing out there but it gets the job done. You won’t experience fatigue if you decide to go for a longer exercise. Overall, Goplus magnet is decent when judged for what it is.
When it comes to features, models such as this one don’t really offer much. That’s a good thing when you count in how much bikes like these cost and what kind of work they are capable of doing. Even so, Goplus Magnet is better than most. We have 8 levels of resistance that you can adjust by turning the knob above the flywheel. The display unit is an interesting one. We don’t usually see that as a feature on bike in this segment, so it’s definitely a large plus. That display shows speed, calories burned, odometer, distance and so on. If you look closely at the seat, you will notice that there are side handles. Goplus Magnet comes with heart rate monitoring as standard. For the most part, everything you see here is designed to be functional above anything else. The fact that the bike is light means that you can move it around easily which is another good thing about it.
Goplus has once again proven why they are one of the dominant brands in the affordable segment of the market. While they may not have competitive high end fitness machines, their budget stuff is right on the money. This particular bike has its benefits and its flaws where former grossly outweigh the latter. If you are looking for something simple, light and suitable for beginners, this is definitely a model to check out. It’s not the flashiest bike out there but it will give you a challenging workout if you need one. Goplus did a great job with this one.
