The debut of the new Smooth exercise bikes in 2011 gave consumers the opportunity to buy a well-respected quality brand that offered exclusive online shopping convenience and factory-direct savings.
The company began in Philadelphia in 1984 as a chain of retail fitness stores and launched their factory-direct online business in 1996. Today, Smooth Fitness is one of the largest internet retailers of home fitness equipment with 90% of sales coming directly from online orders.
Smooth has a reputation of innovation and quality in its complete line of cardio and strength equipment. They make award-winning treadmills, elliptical trainers, and the Agile Dynamic Motion Trainer, as well as home gyms and fitness accessories.
Smooth Fitness originally offered six models including a Spinner, two semi-recumbents, two upright exercise bikes, and an innovative 2-in-1 elliptical / semi-recumbent model.
UPDATE: As of 2016, there are only 3 bikes being offered: the Smooth 250u Upright, the Smooth V430 recumbent, and the Smooth V410 Indoor Cycle. It looks like the company is taking their focus away from bikes, so you are probably better off with another model.

Along with free curbside delivery, Smooth Fitness offers a 60-day money back guarantee on any of their products. They also offer other shipping options including inside front door delivery for $49, in-room delivery including up/down two flights of stairs for $99, or complete delivery and assembly for $199.
The industry-leading warranties on the new Smooth exercise bikes include lifetime coverage for the frame and brake, up to seven years for parts, and up to two years for in-home labor.
With Smooth, you get an award-winning brand that has earned its reputation and standing to be ranked the best in the business in treadmills and ellipticals – machines that are more complex than exercise bikes.
Since they have waited so long to launch the bike line, you can be sure they got the style and perfection they wanted before they put the Smooth name on it.
With the best warranty in the business, superior customer service, free shipping, and direct-to-consumer factory pricing, we expect Smooth exercise bikes will prove to be high quality, superior-value models at very competitive prices.
