Kettler RX7 Recumbent Bike Review

We have not yet had the opportunity to properly review the Kettler RX7 Recumbent Bike, but hope to be able to very soon.

 

Our view – the first thing we noticed was the very comfortable seat and riding position. The high back takes all the strain off the back which also makes it suitable for people recovering from injury or with back problems (always check with your GP before starting an exercise programme).

With a whopping 48 pre-set programmes it should be enough to keep everyone interested with the variation. There are 5 different heart rate controlled programmes to optimise each session for burning fat and building fitness. Your pulse can be monitored via the hand grips or with a chest strap (not included). We recommend the chest strap as a better way to measure your pulse with the heart rate workouts simply because it’s much more accurate.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or already fit and looking to cross train, the Kettler RX7 has alot to offer you. The console and display is a master class in design – the menu selection system makes skipping through the programmes or changing the settings easy and quick. The console can store up to 4 user profiles so that means the whole family can use it and measure their progress over time.
