The 2013 NordicTrack Commercial VR Pro recumbent bike is a great buy. This is one of the best ones we’ve seen on the market, and it happens to be one of the lowest priced ones as well. You can clearly see just by looking at the machine that it was built for comfort and performance. It has a comfortable, adjustable seat, with a strong durable frame that will last a lifetime. NordicTrack has also gave this machine an excellent warranty. The frame and brake is warrantied for life, the parts for 3 years, and the labor for 1 year.

This machine is going to provide the user with comfort and performance, but it doesn’t stop with that. The Commercial VR Pro has some excellent features to bring to the table. Let’s start with the 26 digital resistance levels, which add a significant amount of intensity to your workout, leading to more calorie burn. Second, the bike comes with a 23 lb flywheel, which provides a natural and smooth ride. Last, there are 32 workout apps and the machine is compatible with iFit®.

This machine has some great features and specs, and many extras. The user will be able to view their apps and stats all from a 7″ backlit display. The user can track their heart rate through the CardioGrip™ Heart Rate Monitor with Polar® Wireless Chest Strap. Last, but not least, this machine comes with a compatible music port for iPod® and a workout fan.

As you can see, this machine is loaded with more features than compared recumbent bikes. You will not find this great of value in a bike this price. You are paying for features, quality, comfort, and performance. You will find the value in the features and the durability of this machine. If you are looking for an intense workout that will offer you a variety of programs, then this machine is perfect for you. It is also great for larger, or more advanced users because of the solid build. All in all, this is an excellent value and it has an outstanding warranty to back it up.
