|Publication Date:||1 June 2018|
|ICS Code (Indoor sports equipment):||97.220.30|
This standard establishes parameters for the design and manufacture of stationary upright and recumbent exercise bicycles and ergometers as defined in Section 3.
It is the intent of this standard to specify fitness products for use only by an individual age 13 and older.
This standard is to be used in conjunction with Specification F2276 and Test Methods F3023.
This specification is intended to reduce the demonstrated hazards associated with the use of stationary exercise upright and recumbent bicycles and ergometers.
This specification is written to provide reasonable safety standards for the user of stationary upright and recumbent exercise bicycles and ergometers during storage, movement, entry, use and exit from the product.
This standard does not apply to mechanisms that convert road bicycles into indoor stationary bicycles.
This specification2 establishes additional requirements not set forth in the referenced ASTM standards for the design of commercial fitness equipment to increase access and user independence by people with functional limitations or impairments.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
