Product Review: Weslo Pro CTX Exercise Bike
Price Range: $250 – $300
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a sturdy, versatile, low-to-mid range exercise bike for indoor cardio exercise.
- The Weslo Pro CTX features a sturdy, sleek looking steel frame which is corrosion resistant to ensure the frame remains rust-free year after year. Weslo have backed the frame with a 3 year warranty.
- The bike utilizes a 30 lb heavy flywheel and a chain drive system to deliver smooth, consistent motion for long periods so longer cycling workouts will be comfortable and non-jarring.
- Adjusting your resistance level for a more intense workout is easy with the felt resistance system by just the turn of a knob. The quick-stop breaking system is designed to let you stop the bike at your convenience which is good as an added safety measure.
- Riding comfort is assured with the adjustable multi-grip handlebars and adjustable cushioned seat which allows for easy vertical and horizontal adjustment to accommodate different sized riders. The toe cage pedals with straps provide optimum stability as you cycle.
- Assembling the bike requires two people as the heavy frame needs to be lifted to attach the foot braces. However, assembling the bike is plain sailing from thereon.
- The seat is a bit too hard for some users so you might want to get a gel seat cover for it for added comfort.
- It is a bit noisier than a belt driven spin bike.
Guarantee: 90-day warranty on parts & labor. 3-year warranty on frame.
The Weslo Pro CTX Exercise Bike brings a lot to the table for a spin bike in this price range despite its lack of frills. Aesthetically, this is a pretty awesome looking piece of exercise equipment. It’s a great choice for those looking for a sturdy, comfortable exercise bike which is easy to adjust and adaptable to accommodate people of varying heights.
The bikes rated weight capacity is 250 lbs, but one user who weighs 320 lbs used it without any problem.
Be sure to have another person available to help lift the heavy box and get it assembled.
