The SF-B0419 has a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds which is the usual in exercise bikes. After the assembly of the bike its dimensions amount to 34.7 inches in length, 22.8 inches in width and 62.4 inches in height. The bike weighs a total of 45 pounds after assembly and if it weren’t already light enough to move around it also comes with transportation wheels. We will not look at the features offered by the Sunny Health and Fitness SF-0419 incline plank standing stepper exercise bike in detail.
The bike has 3 levels of incline. The level 1 incline is similar to a stepper and puts an emphasis on the cardio. Level 2 is similar to an elliptical and has a focus on both cardio and strength. Level 3 is for the advanced user and it focuses on core strength and stability. The bike is quite portable; making the transformation of your home into your own personal fitness studio is effortless with its convenient transportation wheels. Simply tilt and roll out for use or away for storage. There is no need for heavy lifting or muscle strain. Wheels at the front of the unit allow the user to move their bike around with ease, from room to room, or store it away out of sight. The bike also comes with 8 adjustable resistance levels Switch up the intensity of your workout with the convenient tension knob, you can increase or decrease resistance so your workout can remain challenging and effective throughout your fitness journey. This makes the product convenient for users of all skill levels. It also comes with a digital monitor which makes it simple to track your progress. Displaying your time, speed, distance, calories, ODM, scan and Pulse, you will be able to see your results to keep you motivated and on pace. With a convenient scan mode, you can choose to have these features continuously repeated to keep up with all calculations. Research also supports that you can burn twice as much calories when you are working out on an incline. You stand while your cycle uses your body weight; though this may seem uncomfortable it will activate more muscles and ultimately lead you to your goal. It also has a belt drive mechanism which provides a super quiet and smooth ride so you can work out without disturbing anyone else, and listen to music or watch television easily. To add on top of everything else, the bike is also foldable.
Construction & Hardware
The weight of the machine after assembly is about 45 pounds and its hardware is constructed in such a way that you can easily fold it up and hide it somewhere. There is one drawback, the warranty is only 90 days, most bikes of this price range have at least a 1 year warranty so that does have us a little worried in case you get some faulty hardware. This machine brings together the functions of a stepper, elliptical and a cycle which is very unique, however due to its construction it will not be very comfortable to use in all forms but is comfort really something you’re looking for when you’re looking for a bike.
The Sunny Health and Fitness SF-B0419 exercise bike has a very innovative design but we do feel like it could use some upgrades. The bike could be made a bit more comfortable and the monitor can also be improved. We have our concerns when it comes to how strong the product is but overall it is a very good product for the price.
