Intenza 550UBi Upright Bike
Biking provides a no-impact workout powered by pedaling, a motion very familiar to many people, making it very easy to perform properly. Also, as our population ages, this form of exercise is an important option for exercise facilities to provide because of its low risk of strain or injury. Our commercial bikes are easy to understand, enjoyable to use, and appealing to look at.
Intenza 550UBi Upright Bike Features
Intenza products are a testament to quality and performance. The 550UBi Upright Bike is a worthy addition to any facility looking to upgrade its cardio offerings.

Endurance is needed not just for exercise. Endurance is needed for exercise equipment itself. Commercially, fitness equipment can face unrelenting use often in less-than-ideal conditions. The value in high quality equipment comes from the ability to perform in heat, humidity, and repeated impact hour after hour, day after day, looking good all the while.
That’s endurance. That’s value. That’s the 550UBi.

- Bottom bracket assembly with precision sealed ball bearings sustain, already exceptionally smooth, performance.
- Aluminum components preserve the premium look of the machine, and your facility, by resisting rust and corrosion even in humid environments.
