Features and Performance
The RevXtreme S1000 is a little heavy at 38kg, but once out of the box, you can roll the bike into position thanks to the included transport wheels. Assembly will need to be done, so you’ll need to set aside an hour or so to complete the assembly. Once assembled, you’ll have to move on to the adjustment features.
Adjusting the padded seat is the first thing to do. Comfortable and sturdy, this seat is easily moved vertically and horizontally. Adjustments are made by loosening the knob behind or under the seat and moving the position to the desired point. There are several height levels which will allow tall and short riders to sit comfortably without much strain on their knees.
The height of the handlebars will be next. You’ll be able to easily switch between four height levels. Comfortable and padded, these ergonomic handles can only be adjusted vertically and provide great support when cycling. Even after an hour of riding, we didn’t notice any soreness in our hands or discomfort.
Resistance should be set to zero at first and adjusted according to fitness levels. The 13kg flywheel is perfectly balanced and provides minimal noise output. A slight whoosh sound is heard when pedaling, but this is minimal. If you want to adjust the resistance level, a turn of the level is all that’s needed.
When riding, the multi-function digital monitor will allow you to view:
- Calories burned
The monitor provides the data you need to ensure that you get the best workout possible.
When inserting your feet into the pedals, you’ll notice that they’re extremely sturdy. Made from aluminum, we experienced very little slipping when pedaling and a very comfortable fit around our shoe.
- Great monitoring features
- Moderately priced
- Ideal resistance levels
- Comfortable handlebars
- Low-noise output flywheel
- No pulse monitor
- Seat hurts after too much use
A lack of a pulse monitor is not enough to ignore this bike. With the advanced monitoring system, you can see all of the other vital stats needed to ensure you have a calorie-burning, stamina-building workout.
After several uses, we realized that the seat, while padded, did start to cause a little discomfort. Switching the seat out for a gel seat or adding a gel cover is the optimal choice. Most bikes will leave you sore and require a seat change, so it’s not much of an issue. However, if you’re not riding for more than 30 – 40 minutes, the seat is more than sufficient.
We truly enjoyed our trial of the RevXtreme S1000 and rate this model among the best in the moderate to low price range. With a minimal-noise flywheel, easy transport option and a great monitoring system, we couldn’t ask more from We R Sports.
