JLL JF150 PRO Cycling Exercise Bike Detailed Review
What customers love about the JLL JF150
The vast majority of customers were very pleased with the sturdiness and stability of the JLL® JF150.
Many customers described the bike as “rocks steady” no matter how hard they pedalled, the bike felt like it was glued to the floor. Therefore, if you are someone who likes to incorporate hard training such as HIIT this the JLL® JF150 won’t let you down.
Most customers found the JLL® JF150 to be fairly easy to assemble. Customers stated that the bike came with easy to follow instructions.
However, many customers said the setup was self-explanatory. Additionally, the longest time taken to assemble bike according to customer reviews was 35 minutes.
For the most part, many customers found the JLL® JF150 to be a comfortable ride. They particularly liked the bikes unique 360-degree handle adjustment feature. This allowed customers to find their “perfect” riding position.
Other notable comments on the comfort of the JLL® JF150 was that its seat was firm and accommodating for people of all sizes. The bikes toe straps also provided excellent grip and removed any fear or slippage. Some buyers went as far as saying they could comfortably ride the JLL® JF150 for hours without getting off.
What customers don't love about the JLL JF150
100 Kg Max User Weight
Some customers were disheartened to learn the JLL® JF150 has a maximum user weight of 100 Kg. Therefore, it is unsafe to use the bike if you weigh more than this. This is an unfortunate flaw with some portable upright exercise bikes. However, there are several other upright bike variations that can comfortably support over 100 Kg. For example, the DKN AM-E, JTX Cyclo 5 and York Fitness Perform 210.
JLL JF150 PRO Key Features
High-Quality LCD Display
The JLL® JF150 features a simple, yet effective LCD display console. This console illustrates all of the rider’s key performance indicators. Which include Time, Speed, Distance, Calories, Odometer and Pulse. This allows riders to maintain workout intensity as well as effectively assess post workout performance.
The JLL® JF150 features a large padded saddle designed to offer maximum comfort and support. This seat can be adjusted vertically and horizontally to help ensure comfort for users of all sizes. Having the correct seat calibration is vital in preventing injury and maintaining correct riding form.
Additionally, unlike many other exercise bikes in the JLL range and upright exercise bikes in general. The JLL® JF150 features handlebars that have 360 degrees of adjustment. This provides a truly tailored riding experience. For more information on the perfect exercise bike riding position, we recommend reading our indoor cycle set up guide.
The JLL® JF150 offers riders 7 levels of adjustable magnetic resistance. This allows riders to progress at their own pace. The higher the resistance the tougher the workout.
With many traditional frictional resistance bikes cranking up the resistance levels made operating the bike incredibly noisy. However, this is not the case with the JLL® JF150 as resistance is not generated by moving components. Rather, the flywheel is pulled by a strong magnet. Making the workout more challenging but still allowing for a smooth, quiet rotation of the bike's flywheel.
Magnetic resistance exercise bikes components don’t wear down from elevated levels of friction. Therefore, they tend to last longer than friction resistance bikes and require less maintenance.
If you are someone who gets bored easily while exercising you’ll be happy to know the JLL® JF150 comes equipped with a tablet holder. So you can check your work emails, listen to music or watch your favourite show on Netflix without having to leave your seat. Making cycling for long periods of time much more enjoyable.
