There are 19 built-in workout programs, including 4 HRC. The LCD screen helps you track your workout progress by displaying speed, distance, calories, time and pulse. Being able to track your progress is a great benefit of this machine, and the LCD display is sleek and modern. However, the pulse and distance readings are not as accurate as you’d hope them to be.
The York Perform 210 uses a three piece crank system and can support users up to 150kg. An adjustable padded seat accommodates users of all sizes, and the pedals and straps are self-leveling. What’s nice about this exercise bike is that it’s ergonomically designed, so your body is in the same position it would be in if you were to ride a bike outdoors.
While the bike may still be difficult to move from one room to another on your own, it does offer built-in wheels to make transport easier. It’s easy to put together, and quieter than other bikes. The bike’s compact design also makes this bike a great option for anyone with a smaller home or flat.
- Easy to put together
- Offers numerous resistance levels – ideal for intermediate users
- Multiple workout programs to accommodate your fitness level
- The pulse and distance readings are not always accurate.
- The screw in the left pedal screws in anti-clockwise, which can be confusing.
- Even though the seat is “padded,” it’s still uncomfortable. Placing a towel on the seat can help make the ride a bit more comfortable. (check out our guide on recumbent bikes if comfort is an issue for you)
Despite these minor drawbacks, the York Perform 210 is an excellent bike that offers a multitude of resistance levels and over a dozen different workout programs. If you’re consistent with your workouts, you should have no problems losing weight, and improving your stamina and strength with this bike. With easy assembly and a price that’s hard to beat, this bike is a must-have for intermediate users.
