The DeskCycle makes it easy to get safe and effective exercise while working at a desk. It’s the only bike that was specifically designed for this purpose. At only 10 inches, the DeskCycle has the lowest pedal height of all pedal exercisers. The touch-free magnetic resistance system of the DeskCycle is both smooth and quiet. Most bikes have friction resistance that can be noisy and have jerky pedal motion that is distracting and unhealthy for your joints. Smooth pedal motion is healthy for your joints, and lets you focus your attention on your work. Quiet pedal motion lets your classmates or coworkers focus on their work. The variable resistance setting offers a wide range of resistance levels to fit everyone’s needs and to continue to challenge them as they continue to use the Desk Cycle. The lowest resistance setting is easy. The maximum resistance of the DeskCycle is between 2 and 10 times the maximum resistance of the other pedal exercisers. The DeskCycle is built to last for years of maintenance-free use and comes with a full one year warranty. Pedal the bike forwards or backwards. Pedaling backwards works opposite muscle groups. The cycle comes with a desk stand and 10 foot data cord to allow the monitor to be position on a desk for easy reading.
