B701 HYBRID BIKE
Our hybrid exercise bikes are ideal for anyone seeking the access and support of a recumbent and the efficient riding position of an upright bike. A “step-through” recumbent exercise bike frame design makes it easier to get on and off the stationary exercise bike. The highly adjustable seat system, combined with exceptional lumbar support, helps you find the perfect riding position.
Cycling is a great, low-impact way to improve your health, no matter the situation. The hybrid design provides an effective cardio workout evenly distributed amongst leg muscles, regardless of age or fitness level. This gives more people access to the benefits of cycling, including the elderly, over-weight and pregnant users, or those in rehab from a leg or hip injury. The 45-degree leg angle reduces stress on the user’s hips and joints.
“I like using the Hybrid bike because it is easier on my knees,” says one user. “I [also] feel that the seat is more comfortable, and I like that it supports my back.” With a lower knee position, users can also breathe easier and more effectively. Our exclusive FreeSPIN™ technology lets you coast after you stop pedaling to eliminate joint-shaking stops.
The B7901 hybrid bike also features an iPod® dock, one large LED window with six feedback options, six preset user-friendly programs, and pulse grips to monitor your heart rate.
AT1501 ASCENT TRAINER
Our uniquely designed Ascent Trainer, first introduced by Matrix, provides a whole new way to move. Uniting club-proven technology with an entirely new range of motion, the Ascent is the smoothest, most dynamic total-body trainer in the industry. This machine moves beyond the limitations imposed by traditional trainers and unleashes a powerful new potential.
The Ascent’s smooth motion ensures fluid pedal movements that simulate true walking, running, or even stadium climbing movements that are easy on joints. Power incline expands the stride length, making workouts more dynamic and motivational by targeting a variety of muscle groups. The increased stride length fully and effectively engages glutes, hamstrings and core stabilizer muscles while dual handlebars deliver a dynamic total-body workout that strengthens core muscle groups.
“The Ascent Trainer is easier on [my] joints and feet like an elliptical, but [it] seems smoother and more comfortable,” says one user. “Also, when I use the incline, it works my glutes and thighs and gives me a more of a hiking feeling.” Because the Ascent has a heavy-duty flywheel, it offers a fluid, comfortable motion that challenges even the most advanced user at full incline. This machine also provides a motion that is dynamic and perpetually smooth because its pedals do not ride on wheels.
The Ascent Trainer also contains an integrated entertainment system, including a made for iPod® dock along with controls and speakers that allow you to navigate your MP3 player directly from the console. High quality speakers built into the console mean you can wirelessly listen to your favorite tunes.
