The Smooth V2300 Elliptical Bike – An Elliptical Trainer with Recumbent Bike Seat

The innovative Smooth V2300 elliptical bike offers users both a semi-recumbent bike and an elliptical trainer in one machine. With a greater range of motion than what a typical recumbent bike can offer, the V2300 offers a superior calorie burn ratio for optimum workout results.

The Bike

The Smooth V2300 elliptical bike has a dual-color backlit LCD display showing readouts for time, speed, distance, calories, watts, RPM, and heart rate. The 7 programs include manual, 5 pre-set workouts (rolling hills, valley, fat burn, ramp, and random), and a target heart rate program.

The elliptical/stepper bike features:

The Buzz

UPDATE:  The V2300 is no longer available.  Check out the latest Smooth exercise bikes here to compare the new models.

The features on the Smooth V2300 include a contour padded seat with multiple height adjustments to accommodate different size users. Where recumbent bike frames can make taller users feel cramped — with the pedals driving the knees high and too close to the console — the seat on the V2300 elliptical bike is positioned higher, allowing for a natural and comfortable extension of the legs.

The 17-inch ergonomic stride length and oversized anti-slip pedals gives you the feel and glide of a low-impact elliptical workout — while seated.

The Smooth V2300 elliptical bike also includes foam handlebars to hand pedal, giving you an upper body workout as well. Other features include 8 resistance levels, a silent magnetic brake, forward and backward pedaling motion, easy to read display, wireless heart rate control, and transport wheels.

Since there are no reviews on the new Smooth V2300, and it will not be sold in brick-and-mortar stores, you are taking it on faith that you will like this unique semi-recumbent elliptical bike. Since it is sold only on the internet, you likely won’t be able to try it before you buy it.

You have to trust in Smooth’s excellent reputation that it will be everything you hope it will be. Nevertheless, you can order one with the knowledge that the company offers a 60-day money back guarantee.

Our Take

At $1,299, the Smooth V2300 makes sense for users who want the gliding motion of an elliptical with the comfort and support of a recumbent bike seat. If you have balance issues and can’t use an elliptical, this design is a nice alternative.

Plus, you are better able to improve your cardiovascular health, and recruit more muscle activity, on a 2-in-1 bike/stepper than you can on a bike. Y

ou should also know that the Smooth V2300 elliptical bike sells for $1,000 less than Octane’s seated elliptical. For the price and overall quality, this unit from Smooth Fitness is a winner.
