If you sit behind a desk all day and worry about potential health problems because of it, your problems may be solved. A company has designed a desk with a built in exercise bike.
FlexiSpot’s Deskcise Pro can be used as both an exercise bike and a standing desk, while also remaining relatively quiet at 60 decibels, which is the sound of a normal conversation 3-5 feet away.
Other cycling desk models on the market are meant to fit under a standard desk, but usually leave the users banging their knees against it. This company fixed the problem by building their own desk, which is height-adjustable. What’s also adjustable are the speeds, changing up to 8 different levels.
Weighing 300 pounds, it was designed with easy movement in mind and can be wheeled anywhere on wheels that swivel 360 degrees. According to FlexiSpot’s website, the bike can be assembled in one minute with no extra tools required.
There is currently a Kickstarter for the product, with an estimated shipping date of November 2017. The bike will retail for $499, but the first 30 backers will receive a bike for a $299 donation.
