Ultra-smooth pedal motion
The High-Inertia flywheel keeps the pedals moving at a smooth pace. Smooth pedal motion makes pedaling the DeskCycle an unconscious activity so that you can focus your attention on your work. In contrast, the other bikes tend to have jerky pedal motion at any usable resistance setting. Jerky pedal motion can be bad for your joints and can distract you from your work. Smooth pedal motion is a must for physical therapy.
Most pedal exercisers use friction resistance which causes jerky pedal motion, especially when you turn the resistance up. In contrast, the touch-free magnetic resistance in the DeskCycle is smooth at all resistance settings.
The high-inertia flywheel
The precision machined flywheel quietly spins at 14 times your pedal speed. The high inertia of the flywheel helps keep the pedals moving at a smooth pace, sort of like a mini spin bike.
