The ProForm Cycle is a good biking option for anyone who is looking to add more variety into their workout program and take their progress to the next level. This bike comes with the ever-popular iFit programming, which will allow you to bike anywhere in the world with ease or pick up a class from a hit trainer in another country. It’s the best way to get connected while keeping your passion for fitness.

This ProForm Cycle has a few key benefits that most home users are especially going to love. First, it’s nearly soundproof. You won’t make a sound when riding on it, even when going at very intense levels, so if someone is sleeping in the next room and you happen to want to get in an early morning workout, no problem. This bike has you covered.

The second nice thing about this bike is that it’s equipped with two wheels on the bottom and comes with a lightweight design, so it’s quite easy to just roll out of place when needed. This means you can store it away when not in use and don’t necessarily need to have a designated gym space to use this bike. For those who live in cramped spaces, this is without a doubt going to be very beneficial.

This bike is also a very durable bike with a solid steel construction and a lifetime warranty on the frame, so for advanced cyclers who like to workout with quite some intensity, it’s an ideal option.


The Great

  • 1 Year Free iFit Membership. If you want guidance as you go about your workout session, iFit is here to help. This membership based program is excellent for helping you work your way through your fitness challenges, giving you guidance every single step of the way. iFit offers both streamed exercise classes as well as live in home personal training. This gives the user plenty of options for how they can get help when they needed.
  • Travel The World. Another perk of iFit is that you can enable Google Maps and travel wherever you want to go around the world. This will ramp up your workout excitement and help turn those boring rides of the past into something that’s far more interesting.
  • Integrated Weight Lifting Options. For those who want to strength train as well, this bike you has covered. You’ll also get two 3-pound dumbbells with the ProForm Cycle that you can use as you go about your workout sessions. Strength training moves can be done on the bike or off – your choice depending on what your personal preference happens to be.
  • Ultra-Quiet Design: If you’re tired of noisy workout sessions that leave your family members asking if you can bike another time, this bike will provide the relief you’re looking for. It has a frictionless Silent Magnetic Resistance system, which has been patented by ProForm, so you won’t find a quieter bike on the market. If you want to do your sessions without disturbing anyone else, this is the bike for you.
  • Easy Storage. This bike is quite easy to simply pick up and then roll right away, so for those living in tight spaces, this makes it a dream to use.
  • 10” Smart HD Touchscreen Display. This touchscreen display is a great way to broadcast your workouts and follow along with your iFit scheduled programming. The large touchscreen display makes it easy to go about your workouts and see exactly what’s going on no matter what intensity you happen to be working out at.
  • Lifetime Warranty On Frame. Not only does this bike offer a steel frame construction, so you really should have no problem maintaining stability while on it, but it’s also going to offer a lifetime warranty on that frame. Take comfort in knowing your bike is built to last.
  • High Level Resistance. You’ll get plenty of resistance with this bike, so there should be no worries about not feeling challenged. 22 levels will help accommodate all the way from beginner to elite.
  • Ergonomic Seat. Comfort is the name of the game for ProForm as they give you their ergonomic padded seat with this bike – seat that you can be sure will feel amazing while riding and will help reduce the risk of unwanted saddle sores.




The Not-So-Great

  • Weight Capacity. The weight capacity for this bike is set to just 250 lbs., so for heavier users, it may not be enough. While most people will get the stability they need, if you are verging on closer to 200+ pounds, you may want to look into a model that does have a higher total weight capacity.
  • One Year Labor Warranty. While you get a lifetime warranty on the frame and three-year warranty on parts, you only get a one-year labor warranty, which is a shame. If something does go wrong after your first year, you will be on the hook for those costs.
  • iFit Ongoing Costs. Before you buy, do keep in mind that if you want to keep using iFit on this bike, there will be an ongoing monthly fee of $39/month. Not everyone is always aware of this, so it’s important to know going in. these features are not built right into the bike.



Who Should Use The ProForm Cycle Trainer?

So who is this bike best suited for? It should work for just about anyone who is looking to get some good workout programming in and a comfortable ride. Thanks to the ultra-silent features on this one, it’s a fantastic option for anyone who is hoping to exercise at home in a tight space.

With a good offering of resistance levels, it’s also great for many different fitness levels as well.

The Bottom Line

Fitness machines with iFit Coach are popular for letting you experience a new workout every day. Exercise never feels too predictable or repetitive, and the app makes it easy to find or create ideal challenges. The S10i Studio Cycle represents a new generation of iFit Coach training because it includes on-demand access to spin class videos. For a low monthly fee you can train with the motivating guidance of expert coaches.

Comparing this exercise bike with the Peloton, a big consideration is whether you’d prefer getting the benefits of live class participation with Peloton, or all the benefits of iFit Coach with NordicTrack. You can learn more about iFit at the NordicTrack website.
