ProForm Duo Exercise Bike, PFEX11916 Review

ProForm X-Bike Duo, PFEX11916

ProForm X-Bike Duo (PFEX11916) is a modern and durable indoor exercise bike- both a  recumbent and upright bike at the same time, with a conveniently foldable design. There is an inertia-enhanced flywheel that powers this unit and ensures a smooth, realistic (on the road feeling) and quiet operation.

And with the 14 levels of digital magnetic resistance as compared to the 8 levels found on other budget models. You’ll change the tension through the digital display panel rather than a tension knob like on the other models. The good size LCD display console angle can also be adjusted and includes a built-in tablet holder. You’ll find 14 preset workout apps with different levels of resistance and time.

As an iFit Ready Fitness Bike, you can use Google’s Street View on different terrains in different countries of the world or connect it with Bluetooth apps. You will find the On/Reset, Bluetooth, Display, 14 Apps, Digital Resistance – and + buttons around the display and indicators like time, calories, and RPM on the white LED display that helps you monitor your progress. It has a large cushioned seat that is comfortable to sit on over longer exercise sessions and that can be adjusted vertically for height. It is a steady and stable product when installed and will not wobble or shake when you’re working out.

ProForm X-Bike Duo has a space saving design when folded or unfolded. It has a user weight capacity of 250 pounds, which is quite all right for a relatively low priced foldable bike. It has a solid construction and should last you a long time with its sturdy steel frame. As a heavy duty product with a steel frame, it weighs 71 pounds and measures 49 x 18 x 9 inches. It is easy to put together on your own straight out of the box, with the easy to understand assembly instructions and a few simple tools you will need. It has a convenient folding design and transport wheels to be able to move it easily.

X-Bike Duo is quite a versatile unit in terms of the intensity levels you can choose and the positioning of the seat- vertical vs recumbent bike. In the recumbent position, you will be doing a less intense workout that will feel like a nice cooling down from your session, but you will still be burning calories if you choose to exercise in the recumbent set-up. It runs quietly and smoothly and appears to be a great bike at the price level, that gives you the feeling it will last you a long time. You can change it from upright to recumbent and vice versa in a matter of seconds. It comes with a 5-year warranty for the frame and 90-day warranty for the labor and parts.
