The Vive Under-Desk Bike Pedal Exerciser is a compact, folding, and affordable machine that can be used to strengthen arms and legs. Designed for home or office use, this bike pedaler effectively increases circulation which, according to Vive, will improve stamina and relieves tension in the joints and muscles.
With a height of 9 inches, the legs can be folded, making for easy storage and portability. Additionally, the feet are non-slip and non-marking so it can be used on just about any surface.
Featuring adjustable tension levels and adjustable toe loops on the non-slip pedals, the Vive Under-Desk Bike Pedal Exerciser can be personalized for your use.
You should know that there are several reviews that reported this machine heats up quickly from the friction of the tension knob. In fact, one reviewer stated he had a burn on his ankle from accidentally hitting it—so be cautious of this.
The inherently low-impact nature of this machine lends itself to rehabilitation. There is a small LCD screen that displays RPM, time, speed, and calories. If you are looking to replace your stationary exercise bike, you should know that you won’t get the same intensity of a full-sized bike.
