DKN 108e Exercise Bike Review

The DKN 108e Exercise Bike is the entry level bike from DKN. However, there is nothing cheap about it. The first thing you will notice about the bike is the quality of the build: Even while setting it up you will be able to see that the DKN 108e has been built to the highest standard which must be the reason why DKN offer a 2 year parts warranty.

The DKN 108e is also quite a small bike making it a great option if you are limited on space (L 130cm x W 52cm x W 85cm); for the taller riders amongst you, don’t worry, as the 108e has a fully adjustable saddle (both vertically and horizontally) so although you can fit this in small spaces you can also adjust it for a comfortable ride. Besides, weighing in at just 29kg you should have no problems if you needed to move it before use.

The 108e has one of the smoothest pedal motions for a bike in its price range which can be put down to two simple things: The 6kg flywheel used on the bike, making it one of the cheapest bike to use a flywheel, and the quality of the bike’s build, making it a squeak free ride.

The Console of the DKN 108e is quite small and compact but it still manages to show, on an easy to read display, all the important information you’ll need to keep motivated during your workout., such as speed / rpm, distance covered, time elapsed, and heart rate. Your heart rate will be measured thanks to its integrated sensors on the handlebars.

Review Summary - In Brief

In our view, the DKN 108e is an excellent manual bike and you'll be hard push to find a bike in its price bracket with a more comfortable riding action. Priced at just £149 it is great value for money.
