How We Reviewed This Model
The Landice U7 home exercise bike is a top choice for bike shoppers seeking long-term fitness solutions. It’s identical to the U9 upright exercise bike sold to health clubs, but for residential use it has a lifetime warranty.
Durability is a major strength of Landice. Workout guidance is a big advantage too. While some bikes are made simply for riding ‘til you tire, the U7 has 10 professionally-designed workout programs and lets the rider add another five. Workout programs automate the bike’s resistance to support goals for calorie burn, speed training, interval training and more. This bike is meant to support comfortable cross training at a wide range of intensity levels, and it has 12 height settings to fit a wide range of trainees.
Some owners set their bikes near home entertainment centers. With Landice you can also bring digital entertainment aboard by adding your mobile device or attaching a flat-screen TV. One option for on-board TV is the Landice Vision System ($800), which has a 19” screen and a remote control.
