The NordicTrack Commercial VR Bike – Heavy-Duty Design, Low Price

The exciting NordicTrack Commercial VR bike offers a heavy-duty steel frame, traction-control pedals, a balanced flywheel, and an incredibly strong resistance system – all for a low price of just $599.

The Buzz

The NordicTrack Commercial VR bike features an iFit slot which gives you the option of buying additional training programs designed by Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser as well as other personal trainers. It isn’t necessary to use iFit since the 30 programs pre-installed are more than enough to keep you challenged and motivated. The easy-to-use console also features 1-Touch Resistance™ so that you can adjust your resistance with the touch of a single button rather than scrolling through options.

More pluses: The slide mechanism for adjusting the seat is marked at intervals so you don’t have to guess each time you adjust the bike after another family member has used it. The handlebars on the seat and those next to the console have pulse sensors for heart rate monitoring.

Two Cons: Look at the picture of the NordicTrack Commercial VR and note that this is not a ‘step-through’ design for easy mounting. You will have to step over the center frame to mount the bike. If this will be a problem for you, get a recumbent with an open frame. Also, note that the backrest is very narrow and so this seat might not be as comfortable for large people with wide backs.

Our Take

Reviews on the NordicTrack Commercial VR are above average; many users remark that the bike surpassed their expectations. We have just one niggling complaint: that NordicTrack has a habit of throwing around the world “commercial” when naming products and this goes for ellipticals and treadmills as well as bikes. So don’t be fooled: the Nordictrack Commercial VR bike is not a health-club quality model, despite the marketing angle of a tough name. However, the “wow” factor on this model for just $599 is just remarkable. This is an excellent design from NordicTrack, probably the best indoor bike they make.
