How long will the Xterra SB2.5R Recumbent last?

The Xterra SB2.5R Recumbent Bike is a simple mix of metal and plastic and has an okay 108 lb. fully assembled weight that can hold 300 lbs. maximum capacity. It has a rather limited 5-year warranty on the frame and 1 year on the brake and other working parts and is best suited for light to moderate use. With proper care and maintenance, users should get a few years of workouts at the very least from this indoor riding machine.

Brief Overview

The Xterra SB2.5R Recumbent Bike has a 4.8-foot frame that is designed to move easily on two transport wheels for optimal space saving purposes though the bulky frame might make it harder than it sounds. It is budget-friendly and appealing on many levels to those looking to ride their way to better health and will make a welcome addition to any home workout space.

Overall Quality

The Xterra SB2.5R Recumbent Bike has a 22 lb. flywheel offering smooth performance through a full 24 levels of body-toning and cardio-health building resistance. It has a 3-piece pedal crank for those needing to push themselves during intense workout sessions but keep in mind this cycle is not built for standing exercise fun. The padded seat offers comfort to assorted sized rears and has a fixed reclined position with optimal lumbar support. Furthermore, the seat adjusts in a horizontal manner to suit a variety of leg lengths during exercise regimes and the pedals are oversized with adjusting straps to hold feet securely while riding. The upper handlebars only have one gripping position, but the side ones are great for holding and carry heartrate monitors for capturing optimal exercise performance. This information is shown with a few other points of interest on a 5” display screen that is dual colored for easy to see data. The SB2.5R also has 12 preset programs to further define muscle tone and build cardio health during exercise sessions.
