Last year Cascade introduced an exciting new recumbent exercise bike – the CMXRT. The CMXRT is a fixed gear design that gives you a more comfortable and realistic pedal stroke with 16 levels of smooth magnetic resistance. This lets you get a smooth pedal stroke as you exercise instead of the drag you feel in pedaling traditional recumbent exercise bikes.
Not only does this easy to use bike deliver a great workout, it’s the first recumbent exercise bike that can be used for group cycling classes! This is a real breakthrough for many individuals, including those who dislike a skinny saddle, people recovering from injuries, seniors, pregnant women, and anyone who wants a more comfortable group cycling experience.
The CMXRT has great features like an easy on and off walk through design, a breathable mesh seat back, a reclining seat for more comfort, and contact and wireless heart rate. Workout feedback includes time, calories, distance, watts and cadence. With 16 levels of resistance and both manual and custom training programs, this feedback can be effectively incorporated into group cycling instruction.
