Kettler Ergorace Review

Kettler ErgoRacer Exercise BikeThe Kettler Ergoracer is probably the best indoor racing bike ever developed. Built well, strong, heavy and designed to accommodate any height of user.

Its specialty is that is uses a different kind of brake system compared to most other bikes. It has what’s called an electromagnetic brake system.

What is the definition of electromagnetic brake?

A non-contact brake design actuated when an electric current charges a coil that acts as an electromagnet. Meaning that an electrical current goes into a coiled block of metal and wire to create a magnet. The power of the magnet is dictated by the amount of current given to it. There are no moving parts, servo motor or anything else that could go wrong down the road with extensive use.

The performance of speed is measured in Watts from 25 to 600. This is certainly way more resistance than the normal bikes will offer, either with a moving magnet plate or a padded brake system. It is also noiseless. You can’t hear a thing. This system offers 115 levels of electromagnetic, frictionless Eddy Current brake resistance.

The saddle is geared to move up and down as well as front to back. Because of the v shape of the bike, the handlebars are also geared for the bigger and taller user as it will extend outwards and away from the cyclist who would have a long reach. The flywheel is a heavy 18 kg, or 40 lbs. The regular/kombi-click pedals are geared for both cyclists using regular sports footwear, or shoes with SPD click system. The frame is factory milled and robotically welded, using a design steel tubing for greater strength, corrosion proof, galvanized coating outside and in, finished with a high quality powder coat.

It comes with a Polar, wireless chest strap, giving you and accurate heart rate reading. There are elbow pads for the cyclist that likes to ride bent forward. It uses a poly v-ribbed belt that is much quieter than a regular chain
belt.

The Kettler Ergoracer’s computer provides 8 training programs including a heart rate control. You can enter your age, and either fat burning or fitness zone to determine your upper pulse limit. There is a recovery pulse feature that helps track improvements in cardiovascular conditioning with personal grades from 1, being the best, to 6. For the serious user, you can use the USB Interface for interactive software training and interchangeable pre-set programs with internet downloads from www.kettlerusa.com.

Kettler Ergoracer weighs just under 175 lbs. This gives it great stability when the user is over 250 lbs. It’s capacity is 285 lbs. It comes with a lifetime warranty on frame, 3s electronics and parts, and 1 year labor. Most spinning bikes have what’s called a direct drive system that make the pedals move as long as the flywheel moves. The ErgoracerĀ  has a coasting flywheel that lets the user free pedal if he wishes to take a break from pedaling. All he has to do is start pedaling again and he’ll
reach the motion of the flywheel.

If you’re Joe athlete, this is a bike you’ll appreciate. the Kettler Ergoracer will last an eternity, and is almost a toy for the hard core athlete as well as the beginner. I’ve sold many and have yet to have any problems, big or small. There are a lot of bikes on the market today, but few if any can compare with the Kettler Ergoracer.
