Summary

The ProGear 190 Compact Recumbent Bike with Heart Pulse Sensors is an excellent, affordable, semi-recumbent exercise bike that prioritizes comfort and compactness. It belongs to the class of lower priced exercise bikes currently in the market but it offers great value for money; a claim supported by the mostly positive reviews of satisfied buyers.

Physical exercise has become increasingly popular as a result of people becoming more aware of the importance of physical fitness and body image. The first thing most people do is hit the gym on a regular basis, but that may not be convenient for some, and most workout machines are too overpriced for the average civilian.

So we may need to carefully assess our options before buying something as simple as a decent exercise bike by forming a balance between cost, features and quality. Fortunately, for people that only require an intermediate amount of daily physical exercise, the ProGear 190 Compact Recumbent Bike with Heart Pulse Sensors is an excellent choice as it ticks all the boxes.

Quality Build

The ProGear 190 recumbent bike is surprisingly light for a durable exercise bike that can carry up to 275 lbs with ease. It’s foldable, saving space and its v-belt drive operates with zero noise, so it’s the perfect addition to any home. Comfort is prioritized here with an adjustable, cushioned seat and backrest, and a clever design that lets mounting and dismounting as easy as possible.

The ProGear 190 would be ideal for people suffering from hip or back pain, elderly users, or even beginners who prefer long duration, low-intensity workout regimes.

Enhanced Performance

The ProGear 190 works like a charm with a 3-piece crank system to ensure the smoothest pedaling motion in both directions. The console displays all the necessary information like distance, speed, calories, time and heart-rate (pulse sensors).

The well-marked 8 magnetic tension levels offer decent resistance with smooth transitions and the large strapped pedals add to the total control of motion. It lacks some accessories and feature you can expect from the premium range bikes, so that’s only a small disadvantage

Verdict

The ProGear 190 Compact Recumbent Bike with Heart Pulse Sensors is an excellent, affordable, semi-recumbent exercise bike that prioritizes comfort and compactness. It belongs to the class of lower priced exercise bikes currently in the market but it offers great value for money; a claim supported by the mostly positive reviews of satisfied buyers.

The ProGear 190 only offers exercise up to a moderate level, so it’s not recommended for people used to high difficulty training. Nonetheless, it’s still a smart choice for anyone wanting a quick regular workout in order to stay in shape.
