Smoothness of Rotation
The equipment includes, i.e., the brake system providing a comfortable workout motion. In combination with the training pc, precise resistance adjustments and diversion while exercising are made possible. Transport wheels, bottle holders, pulse measuring are extras increasing training comfort or effectivity and contributing to a good evaluation.
A sturdy frame construction, high weight, and safe stastand provide stability of the ergometer. A stable ergometer has a higher weight load capacity. Frame and handlebar are less loose for higher training intensities, the ergometer is more durable.
Besides the transmission ratio, the balance unit contributes to the concentric run. It consists of balance mass, pedal bearing, ball bearings, etc.. The better the concentric run, the more joint-gentle becomes the workout.
An ergonomic construction of the rgometer prevents signs of tiredness and physiological bad postures. Details like adjustment of saddle and handlebar, a low entry, pedal sapce, and general construction of the machine provide good ergonomics.

The Kettler exercise bike Ergo C12: Highest comfort for maximum performance

Enormously stable frame

The Kettler exercise bike Ergo C12 belongs to the C models, which are especially characterised by their extra stiff, enormously stable, and very comfortable frame design. The Kettler designers increased the wall thickness of the tube and developed steel tubes with a hexagonal honeycomb structure - everything for an improved stability and safety of the exercise bike. The improved stability is shown in particular in the joints. Here, the screw connection is tighter due to the big supporting surface. The Kettler exercise bike Ergo C12 is made for intensive training sessions and offers a great comfort. Being equipped with an extra deep step-through, the C12 frame provides a comfortable, safe getting on and off and reduces the risk of injuries.

Premium console with TFT colour display

The Kettler exercise bike Ergo C12 is equipped with an absolute premium console. It has a precious surface, which is made of acryl and convinces by an easy and intuitive use.

Regarding the training variety and the training possibilities, the Ergo C12 comes up with a lot: IPN coaching, HIT training, Challenge coach, heart rate coaching, programme configurator for an unlimited number of individual trainings. Like all exercise bikes of the Kettler Ergo series, the C12 is also equipped with the new features of the two user modes: AUTO mode and MANU mode. In the AUTO mode (speed-independent), the user sets the Watt target value. In order to keep this WATT value constant throughout the training, the brake power is automatically controlled. In the MANU mode (speed dependent), the user chooses a gear (brake level), which remains the same independent of the cadence while pedalling. The high-quality, well structured colour display shows the currently pedalled Watt value. The Kettler Ergo C12 is equipped with a Bluetooth interface for the transmission of your training data to your smartphone, tablet or your laptop. That's how you can use KettMaps and KETTLER World Tours and benefit from other fitness Apps. Share your training results with other persons and keep your training motivation high.

Within a second, the saddle gets mounted and you can start your training. You can choose from three saddle upper components each with different technologies: BASIC FOAM, FLEXIBLE FOAM, 3D GEL. The Ergo C12 is already equipped with the 3D GEL saddle. However, when the exercise bike is used by several persons, it is recommended to have a second saddle at hand - for the perfect sitting comfort for everybody.

en by Dennis Wittke on 10.3.2016 4 Model: 7685-600
Guter Ergometer, der auch für Menschen über knapp 2 m geeignet ist. Stabile und schwere Verarbeitung, dennoch recht leicht aufzubauen. Vielfältige Programm-Auswahl. Für den Hausgebrauch absolut empfehlenswert.
de by RUAL on 9.12.2018 5
Sehr gutes Gerät, habe das Gerät seit 2 Monaten und bin sehr zufrieden. Toll finde ich die Möglichkeit nach Watt oder Herzfrequenz zu trainieren und verbunden mit dem Kettler APP ist noch eine zusätzliche Spielerei dabei! Gute Einstellmöglichkeiten, wenig Geräusch, guter Display ein Minus ist für mich das nur eine Blu... [Read more]tooth Verbindung hergestellt werden kann "Pulsgurt oder andere Geräte". Toll wäre Wlan! Für Spinning Übungen ist das Gerät nur bedingt geeignet. [Show less]

Ein tolles Fitnessgerät bei dem bis jetzt alle meine Freunde begeistert sind. Besonders auch das neue Display ist toll.

Nach langer Überlegung haben wir uns für das Kettler Ergo C12 entschieden, also das HighEnd-Produkt der Firma Kettler. Zuvor hatten wir einen Aldi-Ergometer, das nach 1,5 Jahren aber sowohl von der Schwungmasse her, als auch vom Display Probleme machte. Immerhin konnten wir es problemlos zurückgeben, obwohl der Herstel... [Read more]ler inzwischen Pleite war. Nun zum Ergo C12: Aufbau: Wir sind nun nicht unbedingt völlige Laien und durchaus handwerklich begabt, aber der Aufbau war an der ein oder anderen Stelle schon etwas verzwickt, die Aufbauanleitung eher miserabel. Etwa 1,5 Stunden haben wir dafür gebraucht. Der Lenker war ziemlich ölversifft und die Gummibeschichtung sitzt nicht ganz exakt sauber. Wir haben es trotzdem so akzeptiert. Fertig zusammengebaut passt aber alles und wir sind im Nachhinein zufrieden. Stabilität und Sitzkomfort: Der Ergo C12 macht einen sehr stabilen Eindruck, es wackelt nichts. Der Sattel ist verstellbar, dennoch ist m.E. der Sitzkomfort nicht spitzenmäßig. Irgendwie sitzt der Sattel nicht richtig auf der Halterung. Es fühlt sich an, als ob er nicht richtig arretiert ist. Beim Treten fühlt sich das Gerät sehr hochwertig an, sehr laufruhig und angenehm. Nur bin ich etwas irritiert, dass die Schwungmasse nach dem Ende des Tretens nicht abgebremst wird. Display: Das Hauptargument für den Ergo C12 war das komfortable Display. Es ist einfach zu bedienen. Für jeden Nutzer lässt sich ein Profil anlegen und mit dem entsprechenden Namen belegen. Es stehen mehrere Programme zur Verfügung, es lassen sich auch individuelle Programme erstellen. Sehr gut: Das IPN-Programm. Dabei wird zunächst ein 15-minütiger Fitnesstest absolviert, danach erstellt der Computer 23 individuell erstellte Trainings, die man dann so nach und nach abarbeiten kann (Dauer ist jeweils in begrenztem Rahmen wählbar). Das Display ist übersichtlich, die Werte scheinen relativ stimmig zu sein, also keine Phantasieangaben. In den generellen Einstellungen lassen sich die Bluetooth-Verbindungen konfigurieren. Unser vorhandener Polar-Brustgurt H7 WearLink (codiert) ließ sich leider nicht verwenden. Aber dem Ergometer liegt ein passender Bettler-Brustgurt bei (1 Sender 2 Gurte), auch andere codierte Burstgurte sollten funktionieren (der Polar H10 funktioniert). Leider gibt es kaum eine Möglichkeit, die absolvierten Trainings übersichtlich zu archivieren und irgendwann auszuwerten. Wir wollten daher auf das altbekannte Runtastic ausweichen. Leider lässt sich aber der Brustgurt nur entweder mit dem Ergometer ODER Runtastic verbinden. Dasselbe Problem, wenn ich KettMaps nutzen will: Entweder ich verbinde das Ergometer mit dem Brustgurt ODER einer App, also Kettmaps. Aber nach kurzem Test von KettMaps finde ich das jetzt nicht so schlimm, ich hatte mir von dieser Software mehr versprochen. Es sind nur wenige Videos enthalten, die auch einfach nur abgespielt werden, sich aber nicht an das eigene Treten anpassen (vielleicht hab ich auch irgendwas falsch gemacht?!?). Zudem ist das auf einem kleinen iPad-Display ziemlich langweilig. Fazit: Inzwischen nutze ich die integrierten Programme mit dem Kettler-Brustgurt und tracke die Trainings mittels Apple Watch. Funktioniert prima, die ermittelten Werte sind nahezu identisch. Das Trainieren mit dem Ergo C12 macht Spaß und ich kann es weiterempfehlen. Aber ob es wirklich der teure Ergo C12 hätte sein müssen, oder ob es nicht ein günstigeres Modell von Kettler getan hätte, frage ich mich schon. Insgesamt würde ich für das Gerät die Schulnote 2 vergeben. [Show less]

Habe für die Auswahl des Ergometers die Meinung eines renommierten Trainers eingeholt. Ich suchte ein drehzahlunabhängiges Gerät,das mit möglichst geringer Wattzahl beginnt.So kann man Watt unabhängig von Umdrehungen einstellen und falls nötig,kann auch mit wenig Watt trainiert werden,was in fortgeschrittenem Alter be... [Read more]ziehungsweise nach einer Krankheit nötig sein kann. Unter diesen Anforderungen gibt es nicht viel Auswahl.Die meisten Ergometer beginnen erst mit 40 Watt und sind nicht drehzahlunabhängig.Also bin ich zufrieden,doch das passende Gerät gefunden zu haben. Es ist auch sehr konfortabel,da man aufrecht sitzen kann,wenn man das will. [Show less]
