The Buzz

SportsArt Fitness C532r Console

The light commercial SportsArt Fitness C532r Recumbent Cycle is sturdy and reliable, and is marketed for both home use and in public facilities (6 hours max per day). It features smooth electromagnetic resistance and a 24-lb flywheel to handle a lot of heavy use.

The SportsArt Fitness C532r also has a self-generating power source so there’s no need for a plug-in; the display will also remain lit for two minutes once you stop pedaling.

The breathable mesh seatback helps keep you cool and comfortable during the workout. The seat adjusts to forward and reverse as well as reclines. A lumbar pouch is provided so you can insert either a hot or a cold pack for your lower back to lean against.

Located next to the seat is a built-in Infrared handlebar remote control that allows you to adjust resistance as well as toggle between feedback views without touching the display.

Another key feature of this SportsArt recumbent exercise bike is that you can get a free wireless heart rate monitor strap when you mail in your warranty registration card or register online with SportsArt.

The warranty is one of the best in the business including lifetime on parts and 7 years on the electronics.

Our Take

The SportsArt Fitness C532r Recumbent Cycle ($2,579) is the same bike as the C521r that costs $300 less. The difference is that the C532r comes with the Infrared remote and a lifetime parts warranty versus the 10-year parts coverage you get with the C521r.

If $300 sounds like a lot to pay for some handlebar frills and an extra-extra long warranty, go with the better value in the C521r.
