Spirit XBU55 Bike
Durable, comfortable, and smooth are all qualities of the Spirit XBU55 fitness bike. Easy adjustments, a cooling fan, high density foam seat, challenging programs, 20 levels of resistance, and a bright LCD display are all standard.
Indoor exercise bikes have been around for many decades. Their appeal and effectiveness have stood the test of time. Comfort, convenience, familiarity, enjoyment, and medical conditions are a few reasons this modality appeals to a large segment of the population.
Some fitness equipment companies talk about the weight of their flywheel as though it were the most important part of the fitness bike. But a heavy flywheel can actually make it more difficult to use, and create an unsmooth pedaling motion. Instead, we focus on the kinetic energy at the pedal. Taking into account the flywheel weight, pulley diameters, belt length, and belt tension, we have developed the perfect formula to assure a smooth start and finish during each pedal motion. The best way to feel the right kinetic energy at the pedal is to get on a Spirit Fitness bike and give it a workout.
The Two-Degree Difference
A key comfort issue for any semi-recumbent fitness bike is the distance between the pedals. Since the drive system on all semi-recumbent bikes is located between the pedals, we have adjusted the footpad on our pedals to have an integrated two degree inward tilt to make the ride more comfortable. Two degrees may not sound like much, but this is an example of where the spirit of innovation makes for a better cycling experience, and this small but critical detail is only one example of what separates Spirit Fitness bikes from their competitors.
Built to Last
They have one of the best warranties in the industry because we have been building fitness products for over thirty years. All of that experience gives us the understanding of what happens to fitness products not just after two years or five years, but ten to fifteen to twenty years. They still hear from satisfied customers who have been using their Spirit Fitness products for decades.
Spirit Fitness combines the highest quality components with years of engineering experience and then assemble them in their own ISO 9001 factories (International Organization for Standardization. Standard 9001 is a quality management system to help ensure the factory produces quality products).
