Reebok GB40s Exercise Bike Review


Can the most recent Reebok GB40s exercise bike compete with the others in its classification? With a RRP of ₤ 499 we have high expectations.

Order as well as distribution

Bought and provided next day from a neighborhood well well-known retailer, a good start. I had to ask for a hand from my companion to aid me move it from the hallway right into the spare area as it considers around 35kg’s in its box.

Preliminary Setup

Configuration for the GB40s was straightforward making use of Reebok’s useful numbered overview, if you were putting this with each other by yourself after that I assume it would take around 90 mins to create from box to final product.

To speed points up I constantly develop my physical fitness tools in pairs. It’s constantly helpful to have an added person hold little bits while you are screwing them in.

First thoughts as well as develop high quality

After completing the Reebok GB40s as well as moving it onto my floor mat all of it looked extremely elegant. The dark red additionals match the main black body and neck of the bike with numerous Reebok logo design’s present throughout.

As you would certainly expect from a high priced thing the build top quality is great. Every little thing from the entirely enclosed base system right through to the thick bonded seat holder feels sound. Reebok have certainly not cut down on the building and construction of this bike.

Adjustbale seat

When you have attempted great deals of physical fitness devices over the years from lots of brands it’s really rejuvenating when something like the GB40s comes along.

The connection from the seat to the base system of the bike is possible one of the finest quality I have actually evaluated beyond the gym. I can not fault any part of the seats building and construction, the adjustable takes care of are all good quality and every little thing feels large as well as sold. It offers me an impacts that this bike is mosting likely to last.

The seat itself is flexible both up and down and also horizontally which is wonderful for our home as I am much shorter than my partner that would need to both raising as well as move the seat for comfort.

9kg fly wheel with digital resistance

Just like Reeboks various other greater valued exercise bike the Jet 100, the GB40s has a 9kg fly wheel to guarantee smooth motion while in use. The fly wheel provides you all-natural resistance throughout an entire turning unlike cheaper magnetic bikes that might feel uneven and can greatly vary during usage.

Both my partner and also I concur that Reebok needs to have done their research as 9kg’s really feels about best for both people.

Self-levelling pedals as well as adjustable handlebars

When you use your stationary bicycle on a regular basis (you are going to utilize your bike on a regular basis aren’t you then it’s the little things that help you to keep returning.

Reebok have actually included both self-levelling pedals and flexible handlebars. The self-levelling pedals are a truly good addition that conserves you from having to do a strange foot dance with the pedal each time you get on the bike. The high quality of the thick rubberish adjustable pedal bands over great deals of budget bikes that I have examined likewise fills me with self-confidence.

The flexible handlebars are a wonderful attribute as you can relocate these in a clockwise or anticlockwise movement to make this more comfortable during your workout.

Beverages holder

A beverages owner, an odd selection to contribute to the main features list I agree. Having claimed that you really need to understand how frustrating it is mid exercise as well as you need to leave the bike to have a beverage of water. Some of the leading brand names including Reebok have actually missed this function of different bikes and treadmills in the past.

It’s nice that Reebok have actually consisted of a beverages holder as basic with the GB40s.

LCD Present

The Reebok GB40s has been equipped with the latest LCD present practically similar to that discovered on the GX40s cross instructor. An even more streamlined version with less buttons makes it also easier to set an exercise programme. It is beautiful to take a look at with a larger screen than previous models, allowing me to utilize the bike without the requirement for contacts.

Blue LED’s around the buttons as well as a blue/green LCD show make this a pleasure to make use of. Whatever is clearly outlined with the most vital details given a bigger font, the white numbers are additionally really crisp on the dark blue background.

Simple in this case does not mean much less. Consisted of with the Reebok GB40s are 19 user programs (12 pre-set), time target, calories, distance and also heart rate that is gauged from the pulse hand grasps. This combined with the 32 degrees of stress control make this the excellent mix for every degree of fitness lover.

Unfavorable factors

The only negative point I can discover is that the Reebok GB40 does not come with any kind of MP3 playback. For many this would certainly be of no problem and I need to admit I seem like I am just trying to find anything to put in this area, to the credit score of the GB40s.
