Indoor cycling is ideal for getting fit and ProForm exercise bikes are budget priced so that anyone of any fitness level can afford to start on the road to good health.
ProForm is one of the brands owned by the large fitness equipment conglomerate, ICON Fitness, which also owns NordicTrack, Healthrider and Weslo. In the case of ProForm, larger isn’t necessarily better as this brand has some issues with quality control and the customer service is lacking. Both of those drawbacks can be easily corrected. The important point is that ProForm strives to provide good quality bikes with attractive features at prices the public can afford.
ProForm has changed up the models quite a bit over the years, and fortunately the bikes seem to be getting better and better.
The current lineup consists of two recumbent bikes, two upright bikes, two hybrid trainers, two X-Bikes and one studio bike.
The recumbent bike models include the 440ES and the 740ES Commercial, priced at $599 and $799, respectively. The uprights are the 8.0EX and 14.0EX, both at $499 and $799.
The Hybrid Trainers are half elliptical and half bike, costing around $399-$599 on sale.
lastly you have the newest entries, the X-Bike and X-Bike Duo, the most affordable of all of the models.
The reviews on ProForm bikes are generally very good. Most of the bikes are so inexpensive that users are realistic in their expectations and give them kudos for the strong points, particularly the features on the entry-level recumbent and upright.
ProForm exercise bikes are loaded with console features, adjustability for smaller and larger users for the right fit and comfort, and the right price.
The company has made a name for themselves over the years as the go to brand for value and features, so you really can't go wrong with any of the exercise bikes you choose.
