The quality of Cybex exercise bikes is well-known among health clubs and other fitness facilities. With few repair issues ever and solid quality construction, it’s no wonder that Cybex equipment was chosen for the cardio training workouts on The Biggest Loser TV program.
The company was founded in 1973 by Edward Trotter. In 1997, the well-regarded Trotter brand merged with Cybex International, Inc.
Today Cybex is a leading manufacturer of light and full commercial exercise equipment including cardio and strength training machines. The cardiovascular equipment includes exercise bikes, treadmills, steppers, and the award-winning ArcTrainer. Cybex products are currently in use in homes, health clubs, corporate fitness centers, colleges, and pro sports teams training facilities in more than 80 countries around the world.
The company headquarters and production facility are located in Medway, Massachusetts, which is also the location of the Cybex Institute for Exercise Science, a state-of-the-art training center for athletes, trainers, employees, and customers.
Although Cybex bikes are pricey for home users, keep in mind that these are essentially the same machines you'd find in a health club setting.
You have four recumbents to choose from: the 525R, 625R, 770R and the Total Access Recumbent Bike.
You also have four uprights to choose from: the 525C, 625C, 770C and Total Access Upright Bike.
They range in price from around $3000+ or so for the 525 series to $4000+ for the 770 series. There are also upgrades for all models that can raise the price several thousand.
The Cybex upright exercise bike has a welded frame and mountain bike crank, multi-position handlebars, contact heart rate grips, and an optional Personal Entertainment Monitor that turns itself off to save energy and extend the life of the monitor.
The recumbent offers an incredible range of resistance thanks to a self-tensioning drive belt. Any rehab patient can start out with the least amount of resistance at about 20 watts, while the level goes up to a heart-pounding 900 watts for intense training by very fit individuals.
Cybex products have a strong following among fitness trainers and health club customers who give the company universally positive reviews. The low maintenance, highly durable construction and design means the cardio products are built to last a long time. Cybex exercise bikes help you get fit faster and do it more comfortably. Like their treadmills and the Arc Trainer, the bikes are engineered using exercise science to reflect the natural movement of the human body.
