The CMXRT recumbent exercise bike is a fixed gear design that gives you a more comfortable and realistic pedal stroke with 16 levels of smooth magnetic resistance. This lets you get a smooth pedal stroke as you exercise instead of the drag you feel in pedaling traditional recumbent exercise bikes.
The end result? A more comfortable, efficient, and effective workout – with great features like an easy on and off walk through design, a breathable mesh seat back, a reclining seat for more comfort, contact and wireless heart rate and the CMXRT Console which displays key workout statistics. These statistics – including heart rate, watts generated, and calories burned – allow you to custom tailor workouts to make the right progress and see positive gains quickly.
A recent study by the American Council on Exercise found that pedaling backward can provide additional performance gains, activating muscle groups in different ways. With the bi-directional pedaling capabilities of the CMXRT, you can see stronger gains in performance than in other recumbent exercise bikes.
