Exerpeutic 250XL Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse Review

The Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse is currently one of the most popular exercise bikes on the market, which is undoubtedly down to its low price.

Yet, despite its low price, it still comes with many of the same features that can be found on higher priced exercise bikes, such as a heart rate monitor and leg stabilizers, but what it doesn’t come with is a lot of technological features, such as built-in workout programs. Therefore, if you’re looking to get into shape on the cheap, then it might be worth a look at.


The flywheel on the Exerpeutic 250XL, along with the 3 piece high torque cranking system and V-belt drive is able to deliver a smooth pedaling motion. Perhaps best of all, this results in a very quiet cycling experience, so you can work out however early or late you want and/or be able to listen to music or watch TV as you do so.


The Exerpeutic uses a magnetic tension control system, allowing you to adjust the resistance level with a quick turn of the adjustment knob. With 8 levels of resistance to choose from (the same number as the Exerpeutic 400XL), it’s likely that you’ll be able to find a setting that is challenging enough for you.

However, you should also keep in mind that, considering the Exerpeutic is a budget piece of fitness equipment, the highest resistance level is not a challenging as the more expensive bikes found in gyms. Therefore, if you’re in excellent shape then you may want to look elsewhere.

Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse SeatComfort

The Exerpeutic Folding Bike features an oversized cushioned seat, which is reasonably comfortable. Due to the fact that the seat is adjustable, both male and female users, who are between 5′ 3″ and 6′ 3″, can get into a comfortable riding position. The pedals are also oversized, allowing anyone to find a comfortable fit, regardless of their foot size, and feature safety straps to prevent foot slippage from occurring.

It’s also good to know that the bike is both easy to get on and off of, and thanks to its leg stabilizers, it doesn’t wobble from side to side as you work out.

Computer ConsoleExerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse Computer Console

The Exerpeutic 250XL computer console on an exercise bike like this – i.e. a budget bike – is never going to come with a plethora of technological features allowing you to track every aspect of your progress.

However, the ability to see the time, distance, calories burned, as well as your heart rate, which can be measured by placing your hands on the handlebars, should be enough for most, particularly if you’re just starting to get into shape. You should also keep in mind that while the computer console is easy to read, thanks to being oversized, the readings are sometimes off the mark.


While the bike is very light, weighing just 39 pounds, it’s good to know that it can be folded, making storing the machine and keeping it out of the way when people are over a cinch. Transportation wheels can also be found on the bottom of the bike, which makes things even easier.


This bike is backed by a 1-year parts and 90-day labor warranty.

Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with User Reviews

With over 180 reviews to its name and with over 90% of users having awarded the Exerpeutic Folding Bike with either 4 or 5 stars, it’s fair to say that this is one high quality, popular piece of exercise equipment.

A number of users seem to think that the construction quality of the bike is excellent, which is surprising considering its low price. While others love the fact that the bike so quiet when in operation, as well as its ability to offer a good workout. Comments on the seat, however, have been mixed, as some users have said that the Exerpeutic is very comfortable, while others feel that the seat is a little too much on the hard side to be comfortable.

However, according to users, there is an issue with the digital readouts, and some do not like the fact that the flywheel does not coast once you have stopped pedaling.

Any Complaints?Exerpeutic Folding Magnetic Upright Bike with Pulse Footplates

As mentioned, the digital readouts are off the mark, although this is usually the case with low-end exercise bikes. We would also have to side with the people who said that the seat could be more comfortable, although you can purchase a gel seat cover for a little over $15 these days, so this doesn’t pose too much of a problem.

Anything Else You Should Know

All you really need to know is that the Exerpeutic Folding Upright Bike offers excellent value for money, and you would have a hard time finding a better bike in its price range. It seems that consumers agree with this sentiment as well.

While the bike isn’t without its problems, it wouldn’t be fair to make too much of a point of the inaccurate readings and hard seat, as even more expensive bikes suffer from these issues too.

Therefore, if you’re on a budget and just want a reliable, no-frills piece of exercise equipment to lose weight or stay in shape, without having to leave the comfort of your home, then it comes highly recommended.
