No pre-programmed workouts

JLL IC300 Key Features

The JLL IC300 incorporates a set of useful pulse sensors located on each handlebar. These sensors produce an accurate reading of your heart rate.
This feature is incredibly useful for highly targeted workouts. Whereby riders must maintain a specific percentage of their maximum heart rate.

18 KG Flywheel with friction resistance
Like many top of the range indoor cycles, the IC300 features a large smooth 18kg Flywheel. This flywheel is two-way operated, meaning it can be spun forwards and backwards. Two-way operated flywheels are useful for slowing down during intenseness workouts. Simply, lean back on the pedals and gently peddle backwards.
Additionally, the JLL IC300 incorporates built in fictional resistance. Which is generated by specially designed brake pads. This resistance can be adjusted to make workout intense or easy using an adjustable toggle located under the handlebars. The higher the resistance applied the more intense the cycle. This allows the user to tailor their workout experience regardless of fitness level.
The JLL IC300 is designed for maximum riding comfort with several customisation features.
Firstly, the IC300’s seat height is fully adjustable both vertically and horizontally.Ultimately, allowing the user to correctly align their hips and knees for a seamless riding experience.
Secondly, the IC300 incorporates adjustable handlebars allowing users to comfortably align their seat and handlebars. This prevents over extension and lower back strain from cycling for long periods of time.
Finally, the IC300 comes with built in toe-straps also known as toe cages. These straps can be tightened to suit your individual riding position. They also allow for more downward momentum to be exerted during intense cycling without foot slippage.
If you choose to purchase the JLL IC300, the chances are you will not keep it in just one room. With this in mind, the product comes with built in transport wheels located at its base. Simply tip the bike forwards to easily transport the bike around your home.
However, it is important to note that prior to assembly the packaged product weighs 46 KG. This could cause injury if not lifted correctly. Therefore, we recommend getting a friend to help you transport the boxed product, especially if it has to be moved upstairs.
