The desk bikes are super quiet and can be pedalled during class. Some schools have several of these bikes in the classroom all being uses by the students at the same time.
The reason they are so quiet to operate is because the resistance on the bikes are magnetic.
There is never any contact of the magnet to the flywheel so it will pedal without noise even dialled up to the fullest resistance.
There are 8 levels of magnetic resistance available so the student can choose the best resistance for them.
Some students find they can focus better the freer and faster they can pedal, while other prefer a slower pace with more resistance.
The quiet function of the Stel’Air desk bikes ensures the remainder of the class won’t be interrupted.
Stel’Air Folding Upright Desk Bike
The desk bikes will fold away for storage. You can line them against the wall or set them at the back of the room.
There are small wheels on the front of the stabilizer for easy portability of the desk bike.
The desktop is made of a non-slip surface with padded elbow rests that doubles as a “stop”point for a laptop or book so it won’t slide off.
Adjustable Seat Height
The seat is adjustable in height and angle. This will ensure the majority of students can find a comfortable fit as well as easy leg reach.
Bike Seat Backrest The seat also has a removable backrest. To move it out of the way you simply lift up and lay it back. This will ensure that larger children can also fit comfortably on the bicycle seat. With the backrest out of the way there is more seat room.
The classroom desk bike is rated for up to 220lbs.
The economically designed seat is padded for comfort.
Stel’Air Stationary Bikes for Gym Class
The desktop is easily removable for a simple conversion from classroom desk bike to a upright folding stationary bike that can be used in gym class. The bike is designed for sitting and not for pedal standing like a spin bike.
The LCD display will track distance, speed, time, and estimate calories burned. This is beneficial with contributing to fitness and study goals.
Participating in Class for Fidgety Kids
Kids who use the classroom desk bikes say they like that they can “get the wiggles out” so they can focus on their school work. Being able to participate with the rest of the kids helps with grades and understanding.
Some of the schools like to have the Stel’Air desks in the library as well. This allows the kids to study and pedal in a very quiet atmosphere without worrying about noisy fidgeting.
With a row of deskbikes in the classroom the kids will be able to pedal throughout the entire class if needed, or intermittently in turns. Pedalling for hyperactive children can help them focus, be more alert, and has the usual physical benefits of exercise such as burning calories, improved digestion, and gives a healthy cardio result.
