Features of The Inspire cs3
📌The Classy Design
This gym fitness equipment is designed perfectly. The whole machine is heavy. But at the same time, it lasts the long haul. The weight of the machine is more or less 300 lbs.
The heavy machine delivers great performance as well. You will have an adjustable seat at your disposal. People will have three positions to choose from when they are adjusting the back cushion as well.
Thanks to the arms and the footrests of the machine, you can do separate arms workouts and leg exercises. Besides the seat, you can adjust the arm length to suit you as well. The assembly process of this indoor bike takes up 3 hours.
📌This Machine is Self Powered
Unlike most of the recumbent bikes, Inspire Cardio Strider 3 doesn’t have a power cord. Instead, it is operated by your own energy.
Simply put, when you begin exercising, all the functions become active. The moment you stop, the machine stops with you. You can start again in few minutes to begin a new stint of the workout.
This helps the people to keep going. You’ll have to cycle hard to keep this machine going. In that effort, extra calories of your body will burn.
📌Electromagnetic Resistance Levels
Among the fitness bikes that I’ve reviewed so far, this one is the most advanced. You can get an idea about its capacity seeing the resistance levels.
Inspire Cardio Strider cs3 Recumbent bike comes with 20 levels of electromagnetic resistance. Electricity and magnetic principles work together to provide most intensive exercise.
The 20 resistance levels begin from most easy to most difficult. So, this machine is a great fit for someone who’s new to a fitness exercise. It will also suit a Pro when it comes to hard tasks. As this equipment is self-powered, the pressure you apply on the indoor recumbent bike is the pressure you’ll get on your arms and legs.
As you know, the machine depends on Electromagnetic resistance system. The system doesn’t rely on any parts. So, there is no wearing sound.
Also, the V-drive system is quite efficient. The huge flywheel poses challenges to the gym-goers and the crank doesn’t make any noises. You can do whatever you like while exercising.
