Exerpeutic 500 XLS Foldable Magnetic Upright Bike Review

If you have a hectic lifestyle like so many people do today, you may not always have time to go the gym to workout. Or maybe you just prefer to exercise in the privacy of your own home rather than a crowded gym. Whatever your reasons, if you’re looking for a sturdy piece of workout equipment for your home or apartment, the Exerpeutic 500 XLS Foldable Magnetic Upright Bike is an excellent choice.

The Exerpeutic  Folding Magnetic Bike has been one of the best-selling exercise bikes for a long time because it is a good quality entry-level exercise bike that can be folded up when not in use. The Exerpeutic 500 XLS is an improvement on the previous model and still has all the features that made the Folding Magnetic Bike so popular.

500 XLS Features

The 500 XLS has 8 magnetic resistance levels to allow you to customize your workout according to your own fitness needs. The resistance level can be easily controlled by a knob above the LCD screen which is located between the handlebars. The large LCD display is easy to read and allows you to track time, speed, distance, calories burned, pulse and odometer.

The padded multi-grip handlebars provide a comfortable grip and have pulse monitors built into them. The bike also has large oversized foot pedals with straps to keep your feet from slipping and a large cushioned seat for comfort.

The 500 XLS is has a V-belt drive that is very quiet so you can easily listen to music or watch TV while exercising and you don’t have to worry about disturbing your neighbors if you live in an apartment. When you’re finished with your workout, the 500 XLS folds into a space half its usual size so it doesn’t take up much floor space. Fully assembled, the 500 XLS is 39” L x 26.4” W x 48.4” H.

The previous model was recommended for people between 5’3” and 6’1” tall and 300 pounds or less. The 500 XLS recommended for people between 5’1” and 6’5” and is made with 20% more steel, is sturdier and has a higher weight capacity of up to 400 pounds.

The 500 XLS comes with clear instructions and can be easily assembled in about 45 minutes. However, the magnetic resistance can be a little tricky to assemble so extra care needs to be taken when assembling it or the bike will not work properly.

Overview

The Exerpeutic 500 XLS is an excellent entry-level exercise bike that doesn’t take a lot of room and is affordable. It doesn’t have as many resistance levels as some higher-end bikes, but the eight magnetic resistance levels should be adequate for most people. The bike is very quiet and folds to take up less room when not in use, which makes it perfect for apartments or small spaces.

The Exerpeutic 500 XLS Foldable Magnetic Upright Bike should have a great appeal to a wide range of users and will be an excellent piece of equipment for your home gym.
