Heavyweight bikes are bicycles designed to meet the needs of heavier people (see Bikes For 300 lbs Man). These generally have harder steel frames and are much heavier, robust and are usually reinforced. Most bike manufacturers guarantee bikes for people below 220 lbs, but zize provides custom bikes for weight classes above this range (for example, men over 300 lbs).
Benefits of cycling
Cycling has numerous health benefits and is rewarding for anyone who engages in it, regardless of weight. It can help to prevent many serious illnesses, including strokes, certain cancers, heart attacks, depression, arthritis, diabetes, and even obesity. Key health benefits involve:

- Improved coordination and posture
- Increased bone strength

When you start cycling, you will discover that getting a bicycle from zize is the best step for your health.
Cycling is a great way to reduce or manage your weight. It increases your metabolism, muscle density, and helps you burn fat. The happiness you feel when you exercise outside your home, on the street, and across the hills is going to motivate you to cycle. This excitement helps you get, and stay, fit.
Biking helps you get into shape and helps you cut down on transportation costs. You reach your destinations faster – without traffic jams – and it is a healthy means of travel. Driving, buses, and trains are sedentary and unhealthy forms of transportation. They also increase your carbon emissions, unlike cycling which is a stress-free, low impact exercise. Cycling is environmentally friendly and causes minimal tension and injury compared to other forms of exercise.
