The Leikefitness K22607 is one of the air resistance exercise bikes released in 2020. In terms of features and price, it can be compared with the Sunny Health & Fitness Tornado LX SF-B2729. However, it lacks the Bluetooth connectivity feature.

The Leikefitness K22607 fan bike features a durable steel frame combining oval, cylindrical, and rectangular tubes in its construction. Although it’s a fan bike and does not have the extra heavy flywheel like a spin bike, it’s still a pretty heavy fitness machine. With all the parts assembled, it weighs approx. 118.8 lbs (54 kg). Plus, it has a low center of gravity and adjustable levelers on its bar stabilizers, and therefore, it delivers excellent stability.
It’s important to mention that the seat tubing features a triangular base and is welded in two points to the median base bar. This type of construction considerably improves the bike’s overall sturdiness. It’s one of the reasons it is rated for a weight capacity of 280 lbs (127 kg).
Most of the bike’s frame is double-coated with a corrosion-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish. The main color used is black, this being the only color available for this bike (at least for now). The only exceptions are the flywheel which is red, and the seat post which is made of extruded aluminum and does not have a paint finish. Also, the only notable non-metallic part in the bike’s construction is the cover of the drive system. This part is made of durable ABS material.
The fully assembled bike is a bit larger than the average spin bike. With all the parts assembled, it is approx. 51.7″ (131 cm) long, and 24″ (61 cm) wide. Also, its highest point is approx. 50″ (127 cm) above floor level. It is recommended, though, to also leave at least two feet of clearance all around it for ease of access and unhindered usage.
Seat and handlebars
The saddle included with the Leikefitness K22607 fan bike does not have super cushioning as it is the case for other types of bike saddles. However, its top is made of polyurethane material which is not all hard and has a bit of flex to it. It also has a median groove for improved air permeability.
It is also important to mention that the bike’s saddle has a standard collar-type connection system to its slider. This being said, if you will ever need/want to replace it, compatible models are widely available; you should be able to find one that fits in any bike shop.
The bike’s seat is four-way adjustable. Its upright post has 9 adjustment positions while its horizontal slider offers 11 extra adjustment positions (with smaller increments). Therefore, the bike should accommodate users between 5’2″ and 6’5″ (157 – 196 cm) with no problem, allowing a complete range of motion.
Similar to other air resistance exercise bikes, the Leikefitness K22607 only has two mobile handlebars. They have standard, curved grips with PU sleeves for improved comfort. The handlebars are directly attached to the pedal bars. Therefore, they continue to move for as long as you pedal. They cannot be locked to remain stationary during your workout.
The handlebar arms have footrests at their base. This feature is a plus as not all air bikes have it. These pegs allow you to rest your feet while exercising by using only your arms.
The handlebar grips do not have incorporated pulse sensors as it is the case for other exercise bikes. However, the included performance monitor does have a built-in pulse sensor.
Drive and resistance
The Leikefitness K22607 is an air resistance exercise bike. It is equipped with a large, 7-blade fan which is the main resistance-generating element. As you begin to pedal and/or move the bike’s arms, the flywheel spins into its casing and generates pedaling resistance.
The bike does not have any extra resistance elements. It does not have a motor or a magnetic brake. The fan is the sole resistance-generating element. This being said, you cannot adjust the overall pedaling resistance. However, just as for any other fitness machine with a fan resistance system, the bike delivers a dynamic response during usage. This means that if you pedal and/or move the arms at a faster rate, the fan will generate more resistance and the workout will proportionally increase in difficulty.
This Leikefitness exercise bike features a dual-drive system. It integrates both a chain and a belt and has two concealed pulleys. This type of drive system considerably improves the overall motion stability. It also adds a bit of difficulty to the pedaling motion, apart from the resistance generated by the fan.
Of course, reverse pedaling is possible, but coasting or free-wheeling isn’t. When pedaling in reverse, the fan generates the same resistance.
The bike is equipped with a heavy-duty crankset, with solid steel crank arms similar to the ones on mountain bikes. The pedals are also made of durable aluminum alloy. Therefore, they should withstand the whole weight of the user as long as they don’t exceed the maximum specified weight limit which is 280 lbs (127 kg).
The pedals do not have straps or SPD elements for spin shoes. They only have rubber inserts for improved adherence. They have standard 9/16 threads, though, so you can replace them with other types of pedals if you want.
The Leikefitness K22607 fan bike features a pretty standard HIIT performance monitor. It is equipped with an LCD display divided into 8 sub-sections in order to show as many workout metrics as possible at the same time, so you don’t have to rotate them or use a scan function. It tracks time, total time, distance, speed, RPM, watts, calories burned, and pulse. As we’ve mentioned above, the bike does not integrate any pulse sensors, but the monitor can read your pulse from a wireless HR chest strap. This accessory is not included, though.
Although the bike is not a motorized bike and the included performance monitor cannot adjust the resistance automatically, it does have seven workout programs to keep you motivated. Three of them are interval-based, the other four are target programs. Each program has its own quick-access key on the right side of the unit.
The interval programs are 20/10, 10/20, and custom. As the numbers suggest, for the first interval program the work period is 20 seconds, while the rest period is 10 seconds. For the 10/20 interval, the work duration is 10 seconds, while the rest duration is 20 seconds. Of course, for the custom interval program, you can set up your desired values for both the work and the rest intervals.
The four target programs give you the possibility to select workout goals for time, distance, calories, and heart rate. If a workout target is selected for time, distance, and calories, the monitor unit will count down from the selected value until it reaches zero. For the heart rate interval, it is a bit different. You select a BPM target and the monitor will prompt you to pedal faster or slow down your pace in order to remain within the selected BPM interval. Of course, in order to use this program, you will have to use a wireless HR chest strap (not included).
The monitor unit also integrates a device holder. This consists of a small shelf right above the bottom controls which can serve as a tablet or phone holder. However, it does not have any connection ports for your device and does not have online connectivity. It is battery-powered and the batteries are included.
Assembly and Maintenance
The bike’s drive and resistance elements come pre-assembled, attached to the main body. You only have to attach the base bars, the monitor post, the performance monitor unit, the seat post, the saddle, the moving arms, the pedal bars, and the pedals. This shouldn’t take more than an hour. The task is straightforward and the manual provides fairly clear assembly instructions. All the necessary tools for it are also included.
Since the bike’s drive system integrates a chain, it requires periodic lubrication. Standard chain oil is the best choice for it. It’s also recommended to periodically check for loose bolts and part, and re-tighten them, if necessary.
