The AFG 2.0 AR recumbent exercise bike features 10 levels of resistance and AFG’s exclusive FreeSPIN™ technology.
You get some nice features and capabilities, but we're not quite sure it is worth the price tag.
Let's take a closer look a this one to see what it is all about.
The console has a 10 x 14 red LED dot matrix window and two 4-digit LED windows for workout feedback.
User programs include Manual, Weight Loss, Rolling Hills, Cadence, Intervals, Random, and Custom.
The AFG 2.0 AR bike features:
In general, the user reviews on the 2.0 AR are favorable and consumers are happy with the results.
The AFG 2.0 AR recumbent exercise bike features a step-through frame for easy mounting and dismounting, and the seat offers lumbar support and is adjustable for different size users.
It has contact heart rate grips on the handlebars, a water bottle holder, and 10 levels of smooth magnetic resistance.
The AFG 2.0 AR also features an 18-lb flywheel drive system and FreeSPIN™ technology that separates the pedals from the flywheel inertia. That means you can stop pedaling and “coast.”
This technology allows the flywheel to spin freely, thus eliminating potential jarring stops that could put stress on the legs and joints.
It's interesting to note that AFG only offers one upright bikes, as opposed to most companies that give you a number of upright options.
The 2.0 is the base recumbent model in the series, and there's also a 4.0 AR, 7.3 AR and top of the line 7.3AIC. The lone upright is the 7.3AU.
As you move up in the lineup you get more capability, but the price also jumps from $899 up to $1999.
There’s nothing really wrong with the AFG 2.0 AR recumbent exercise bike but there’s nothing to recommend it for either.
At $799, you should be getting a lot more value than this.
it were priced around $599, it would be a better deal.
If you’re going to spend $800 on a recumbent, watch for the LifeSpan R3 to go on sale. It’s normally $1000 but we’ve seen it for as low as $849.
