The Diamondback Fitness 510Sr is a comfortable machine that can help you lose between 300 and 500 calories per hour. Priced between $700 and $800, this machine is designed to keep your body in a recumbent position which means that you will be able to work out for far longer than usual. Perfect for anyone who wants to avoid the hassle of going to the gym, this recumbent bike can be used by beginners as well as stronger athletes.
The level of comfort on this particular bike can be considered as above average. In fact, the seat is quite thickly padded hence delivering hours of pain-free pedaling. Contoured and framed, the backrest is also padded to keep issues like slipped discs at bay. Both the set and backrest are ventilated to prevent odors and over-heating. The seat can be moved back and forth to fit users of various heights. However, some people have found that the seat cannot really accommodate someone who is 5’2 or lower. These users needed to place a pillow behind their lower backs to push them further down the seat so they could reach the pedals.
As far as the pedals are concerned, they are quite large and textured to prevent your feet from slipping. Users will also be able to benefit from oversized straps to fit easily around your ankles, regardless of your shoe sizes. The two handlebars located on either side of the seat are also textured and include sensors to help you keep an eye on your heart rate.

To shuffle through the different levels of intensity, athletes should use the machine’s digital console. The fonts on this machine are quite clear and large, but some people still found that they needed to lean forwards to properly read the display. It is backlit but the light is not bright enough for darker rooms so you might need an external light if you’re planning on using the bike at night. This model can also be used to consult various types of fitness-related data such as revolutions per minute, speed, calories, distance, heart rate, watts, time and selected level of resistance.
Athletes can additionally shuffle through 20 pre-programmed workouts including 1 quick start, 2 user profiles, 4 heart rate, 2 fat burn, 4 strength, 5 hill and 5 interval programs. An outline of the main programs is as follows:
- Heart Rate Programs: These can be used to periodically increase and decrease the intensity of your training session. Consequently, if your heart rate goes down, the machine will switch to a higher level of resistance to encourage you to push further and input more effort in your workout. This program can be used to strengthen your cardiovascular health while increasing your metabolism.
- Custom user profile programs: These two programs can be used to store the individual physical and fitness data of each user. This can come in quite handy to larger households with several users. With these programs, you will be able to resume where you left off.
- Profile programs: With these programs, the machine automatically shuffles through the different levels of tension to vary your workout while preventing your body from adjusting to the same level of intensity. The profile programs include 2 pursuit, 3 circuit, 3 course and 1 manual workout.
Additionally, athletes can also benefit from fat burn, interval, hill climb and strength programs. The USB port gives athletes access to digital features and connectivity to fitness websites.
