Pros Of  The DKN-XC-160i

    • This piece of apparatus has a brilliant display console so you can tell exactly how you are performing, all of the time.


    • Everyone has a different riding technique so it really is good that the pedals are articulated to allow for this.


    • It has wheels attached making it very easy to move to its wherever you choose.


    • It is Bluetooth which is perfect for optimal training.


    • A great system for allowing four different users to personalize their workout.


    • Pre-programmed profiles set from beginner to advanced so no going through all the levels trying to find the best one.


    • Makes allowances for height, weight, age and of course gender. This is brilliant as “one size fits all” doesn’t apply.


    • This then allows the calories burned reader to be very accurate (A system you wouldn’t get on a cheaper model).


    • Watch your workout data live on the DKN-XC-160i console.


    • On account of the front heavy flywheel and the “Q” factor is very low (closeness of the pedals) making it natural to use.


    • It has an ergonomically and biomechanically design for a natural ride/run.

    • However, with this being a new trainer it is too early for anyone to leave any negative reviews as yet so I shall post as and if/When any arrive.


    My Final verdict

    Although, I say in the pros, everything I have read about the DKN-XC-160i. Well, it really is worth the money for the features it has with it. We were especially impressed with the ability to enter your specifics to really personalize your workout.

    Although it has become very common on more expensive pieces of kit but less so on the less expensive.

    Especially not one that appears to represent the calories burned so accurately which I guess, putting fitness aside for a minute, is what every person in the world who is training for the purpose of weight loss needs to read.

    As I say on-site, health incorporates fitness, but a larger than the wanted amount of people overlook the health aspect and concentrate only on the weight loss, which, if the site is to be interpreted properly, then they shouldn’t.

    There to me is no doubt that the DKN-XC-160i will be great for exercise as it comes from an extremely reputable manufacturer. So, as much as you may still be wondering, what is it to be?? Health or fitness? This, however, appears to cater for both.
