The TruPace V330 exercise bike is a semi-recumbent design with a number of details that are just right: a large padded seat, easy to use console, smooth and quiet operation, and a low price that has to be seen to be believed.
The dual color backlit LCD display has readouts for time, speed, distance, watt, calories, and pulse rate so you can monitor your workout progress.
The TruPace V330 recumbent bike features:
The TruPace V330 exercise bike has an 18" stride length, a 90-lb frame that supports users up to 275 pounds, transport wheels for enhanced mobility, and articulating foot pedals.
The integrated heart rate contact grips are on handlebars conveniently located next to the seat for natural hand positioning.
Since you are pedaling in a recumbent or reclining position, the adjustable and cushioned seat offers lumbar back support to prevent strain on the back, neck, and shoulders.
The TruPace V330 bike frame is not quite a “step-through” design but the bar is low enough that it won’t require lifting a foot very high to step over it. Overall, it is an easy recumbent to mount and dismount.
In addition to the mp3 compatible plug-in port and a headphone jack, TruPace Fitness has also added high quality built-in speakers on the console.
The 22 workout programs include custom, watt, 4 heart rate control, 3 goal (time, distance, calories), and 12 preset workouts with 8 levels each.
The semi-recumbent TruPace V330 exercise bike has received good early reviews in its debut in 2011. You get a lot for your money at just $399, but this model comes up short when compared to the Horizon RC-30 and a couple of the Schwinn recumbents.
Those bikes offer longer warranties, easier walk-through mount/dismount, and heavier and longer frames for better stability. We suggest you check out those models instead, which are among our picks for best exercise bikes.
