Utilizing a friction-free magnetic resistance system, the unit is capable of providing 16 levels of difficulty within a smooth low-noise enclosure. The frame of the bike is constructed of heavy-gauge industrial steel, and includes a 50-year manufacturer warranty for not-at-fault malfunctions. Oversized foot pedals can be adjusted to any foot size via a belt design, working in conjunction with the seat locking system to support riders short and tall. A touch-sensitive LCD display provides time, speed, distance, calories-burned,wattage expenditure and resistance level information, keeping users informed throughout their workout for optimal results. The backlit unit also includes 12 preset fitness programs with central focuses such as heart-rate control, pulse recovery and wattage output, with customizable functions and manual override for user-tailored interaction. The 1745's side-mounted handlebars are fitted with heart-rate sensors for second-to-second pulse information, which can be used with the device's pulse recovery program to receive a score based on how quickly a rider's heart-rate returns to a resting position. The bike also includes a stainless steel water bottle for sufficient hydration for the duration of a workout session, as well as a set of front-mounted wheels that make storage and maneuverability between sessions relatively simple.
