Compare with other recumbent exercise bikes

The Weslo Pursuit R 3.2 is an affordable recumbent bike that boasts of a solid frame and was designed with comfort in mind. Now this is a fairly new product but even though, its popularity has rapidly increased thanks to its quality build and low price.

As an entry level model, this bike doesn’t come with all the fancy features you’d find in a more advanced model, but still manages to offer some very nice ones. It comes with a silent feature that makes for an extremely quiet workout even on the highest resistance level. This is especially great as users will be able to listen to some music or watch TV while exercising, which will make time pass faster and thus motivate them to work for extended periods of time on a constant basis.

Ease of Use and Comfort

This model comes with quite comfortable and tickly padded oversized seat and seat back, which can be easily adjusted to accommodate a wide array of users. The pedals and handlebars are equally comfortable as they were built taking ergonomics in mind.

This recumbent bike also comes with a step thru design as the manufacturer calls it, that is merely a fancy way of letting you know that you can hop on and off with ease thanks to its large step through area, making it easy even for those who suffer from ankle, knee or other leg problems. It is also ideal for those who may be recovering from surgery or suffering from an injury or stiffness as it allows users to comfortably lean back while working out.

This entry level model is very simple to operate and even a beginner will have no problems navigating his/her way around it.

Assembly and parts

You’ll find that it’s not hard to put this model together as it comes semi-assembled and will require just a fair amount of assembly at home. Indeed, even if you haven’t had experience with bikes before, you will find that putting it together won’t take you more than an hour. If you experience any trouble you will also find the illustrated manual very useful, since it clearly labels each of the parts and tells the user how to put them together.

  • Product Dimensions: 59 x 22 x 43”

The recumbent bike comes with basic features such as 8 preset workout programs that will keep you entertained when you don’t feel like customizing your own workout. Also, while it resistance levels might not prove challenging enough for the advanced user, it will certainly prove hard enough for beginners and the occasional user.

The large and easy to read LCD monitor displays fitness data such as calories burned, time, speed and distance. An important point here is that the distance is only displayed in Km. which some users might find a bit of a problem. However, that shouldn’t make much of a difference to your, especially if you don’t care about visual statistics as much as you do about the importance of a workout. You can always find a converter online though.

A great thing about this model is that, despite being quite affordable, it also includes a handy heart rate sensor, grip positioned, that will help you keep track of your heart beat while you push yourself to your limits. As a nice addition, this model comes with transport wheels to make it easier to move from room to room.

This particular model comes with a maximum user capacity of 250 pounds, which is less than what similarly priced models Mag Cycle and Stamina 4825 have to offer, and can be limiting for some users.

Drawbacksweslo 3.2 handle

As shown by its high rating, this model doesn’t come with many drawbacks. In fact, the only complain that has been mentioned is that its heart rate monitor doesn’t work, though this has been users’ fault as they failed to remove the thin layer of film protecting the handlebars. So in case you do buy this model, don’t forget to remove it! Also make sure that your pals and fingers are coming in direct contact with the sensors.

With regard to the display monitor, a handful of users complained that it did not record workouts and found it to be hassle to write down their workout times, so it is important to note the display re-sets after every use; however this is not drawback for most people.

Overall

This model is the ideal recumbent bike for anyone with lower body aches and pains, the at home workout enthusiast or anyone beginning their exercise regime. It is extremely easy to get on and off of, making it ideal for anyone suffering from leg problems or the elderly. It also provides for a very comfortable and enjoyable workout thanks to its padded seat and silent feature.

However, it is not a professional model, so those that take their workouts more seriously and are looking for a recumbent bike with a wide array of features should check out more advanced models such as the Horizon Fitness RC-30 and the Schwinn 270.

This model comes with a one year warranty on frame and 90 days on the parts.
