Types of resistance used on exercise bikes

Magnetic resistance exercise bike, how does it work: Before the arrival of Magnetic resistance exercise bikes, direct contact exercise bike earned popularity and dominated the exercise bike industry. After that, Magnetic resistant bike was invented and direct contact exercise bike lost their popularity.
So how magnetic resistance bikes do operates?
There are two magnets and a flywheel in a magnetic resistance bike. The flywheel works as a magnetic conductor.
Flywheel continues to rotate as per cycle. The flywheel and two magnetic resistance interfere but do not touch with each other. The two magnetic generates riding efforts. You can increase or decrease the resistance by using a button associated with the console given with the bike or through the knob.
Benefits of using Magnetic Resistance Exercise bike
Magnetic Resistance bike is perfect for home use. You can also use this bike in a residential area because this magnetic resistance decreases extra noise. Seniors in the home can easily workout while their juniors study or taking a nap. Direct contact resistance is very noisy but Magnetic resistance bike is very quiet.
Another important thing is you can set your resistance level through the knob or in the console. All resistance bikes do not provide this feature. You cannot set your resistance level on the friction resistance bike. There are indications on the console in a modern magnetic resistance bike so you can set your preferred resistance using the button on the console.
If you have a magnetic resistance bike then you won’t have to spend a long time on maintenance. Other resistance bikes need regular maintenance such as changing pads, lubrication, dust etc. The only maintenance in the magnetic bikes may be tightening screws or wires. So the maintenance cost is very low. Other resistance bikes maintenance cost is very high.
