Like the rest of their outstanding cardio machines, Precor exercise bikes offer superior design to make your workout more enjoyable, comfortable, and effective.
Precor was founded in 1980 by industrial designer David Smith as Precision Corporation. From the start, Precor earned a reputation for quality and innovation in its cardio equipment line, and later in its strength training products.
From launching the industry’s first cushioned treadmill in 1990, to introducing the highly regarded Elliptical Fitness Crosstrainer™ (EFX) in 1995 and the Adaptive Motion Trainer® (AMT) in 2007, this award-winning company has distinguished itself as a leader in residential and commercial fitness equipment.
In 2002, Precor became a subsidiary of Amer Sports Corporation, the world’s largest sports equipment company, and the parent of the brands Atomic, Arc’Teryx, Mavic, Suunto, Salomon, and Wilson.
The Precor exercise bikes for home users are the exact same bikes used in fitness centers and health clubs around the world. These self-powered bikes require no plug-in to light up the console, and feature Precor’s patented SmartRate® Heart Rate System with handlebar grip sensors, and KOPS (Knee Over Pedal Spindle) biomechanics that put the user’s seat in an optimal position for more efficient pedaling.
There are currently 4 models to choose from, two uprights and two recumbents.
The Assurance Series
The UBK 615 Upright Bike is the entry level model, if you can call it that at just under $2,500. It features three handlebar positions, 6 preset workouts, 25 resistance levels and customizable pedals.
The RBK 615 Recumbent Bike is comparable to the UBK 615, with a step through design and comfortable, ventilated seat. It costs around $2,445 on sale.
The Experience Series
The top of the line series consists of the UBK 835 and RBK 835 with 12 workout programs and a larger LED display.
The company recently did away with the mid-level series, consisting of the UBK 815 Upright Bike with dual-side pedals, 14 level adjustments on the seat, two-stage drive system for quieter operation, advanced LED display and upgraded frame, and the RBK 815 Recumbent Bike shares features and capabilities of the UBK 815.
All bikes have warranties that cover the frame for life, 5 years on the parts and wear items, and one-year in-home service coverage.
UPDATE: The company recently partnered up with Mad Dogg to create a new line of Spinner bikes. Check out our reviews here.
