ProForm X-Bike Duo Reviews – Upright + Recumbent

Welcome to ProForm X Bike Duo Reviews! In this product review, we will be taking a look at this exercise bike called has been released by ProForm at the start of 2018. This particular bike has been manufactured using the latest technology available and offers lots of features.

The reason why I recommend the ProForm X Bike Duo is because it costs less and can be used as a Recumbent Bike and an Upright Bike. Not even one exercise bike in this world has such an option where you can change the seat from recumbent to upright or vice versa.

Before we get started, I suggest you take a look the table below in order to view all the key specifications and features of the X Bike Duo.

What We Like

In this section, I’ll walk you through some key specifications and features offered by the X Bike Duo. Some key specifications and features are as follows:-

iFit

You can take your fitness to much greater heights with the help of certified personal trainers as they take you for a trip all around the world. The iFit® Coach Ready™ enables you to download your favorite places from Google Maps so that you can ride the X Bike all over the place. This is a blissful experience which is offered by ifit but it comes with a small subscription fee.

Display

The Large LCD Display enables you to view your workout stats like distance covered, calories burned, heart rate, time and much more. Its much larger than the size of an iPad and the screen quality is just outstanding.

Workout Apps

As listed in the table above, you get access to 14 different workout apps which you can use in order to meet your fitness goals. These apps have been designed by professional trainers who conduct the training via the iFit platform.

Frame

This is one the best exercise bikes by customer reviews because the ProForm X Bike Duo provides you with Upright + Recumbent Frame. Working out in the upright position helps you to increase the intensity of your training whereas, training in the recumbent position helps you to train more comfortably.

Design

This particular design is unique and ProForm has definitely engineered it in such a way that it can even fit in your kitchen/bathroom (I’m kidding). The SpaceSaver® Design helps the X Bike Duo to fit in any home. Once your done with the training, you can fold it and keep it in a corner. Yep, that’s why they called it “SpaceSaver”.

Inertia-Enhanced Flywheel

Flywheel is a must have option for an exercise bike in order to provide smooth and swift pedal movement. There are some exercise bikes which tend to vibrate and cause jerks. You won’t be facing any issue with this particular model.

Seat

In my opinion, I tend to think that this is the best feature because the seat adjustments provided by ProForm X Bike Duo are quite flexible and can be adjusted easily into place. The seat is well cushioned so that you don’t feel like someone is stabbing your back. You don’t need to be a mechanical engineer to adjust the seat (it’s that easy).

Resistance Levels

As mentioned above, there are 14 resistance levels which come with this bike. With the assistance of SMR™ Silent Magnetic Resistance, your workout can be intense and smooth at the same time. The sound pollution given out is reduced with this technology and you don’t have t o trouble your neighbors anymore.

Integrated Tablet Holder

How cool will it be if you can watch your favorite TV shows/movies and workout at the same time? Well it’s absolutely possible but make sure that your tablet fits the Integrated Tablet Holder.

Easy Assembly

You’ve probably waited patiently for a couple of weeks for your equipment to arrive. Unboxing can be really stressful and annoying at times but this is not the case with X Bike Duo. The bike is already assembled and you don’t have to worry about it. Start your workout as soon as you get it!

Transport Wheels

The transport wheels now help you to move the ProForm X Bike Duo with ease. Its so easy to move that even an infant can do it. The bike is built with these wheels on each side of the machine. Move it anywhere you want.


What We Don’t Like

In this section we will be looking at three main disadvantages/cons of this machine. They are as follows:-

  • Customer Service
  • Weight Capacity
  • Warranty

Customer Service

The customer service of this specific bike is slow. No matter which ProForm equipment you chose, the customer service will always be slow because it’s a very massive company that sells it’s top quality equipment almost every single day all over the world. Do expect to wait for a couple of weeks to get the repairs done if there are any.

Weight Capacity

As mentioned in the table, the X bike Duo can withstand only 250 lbs (113.3 Kg). ProForm should definitely increase the weight capacity of this machine. However, if your less than 250 lbs (113.3 Kg), there’s no problem.

Warranty

This bike comes with 90-Day Parts & Labor Warranty. 90 days is a very short period and this factor must definitely be improved. In case you can use it with proper care, you’re good to go!


Conclusion

The price which I’ve mentioned in the table includes the shipping fees as well. If you’re living in the US, it’ll cost much less but I’m not aware of the exact price.

In case you have a limited budget to spend and if you have limited space in your apartment or wherever you live, this is definitely the right bike for you as the ProForm X-Bike Duo provides you with many top quality attributes. If your interested in taking a look at another exercise bike, I suggest you read the ProForm 235 CSX Recumbent Bike Reviews.

  1. This bike sounds really great, especially if you don’t want to pay monthly/annually to go to a gym you can pay a fixed price and workout in your home. It also seems like it is a good size to fit in your home if you don’t have too much space and you want multiple dynamics in your workout. Thanks for a great extensive review, really helpful and informative 🙂

    1. Hey Joe! Thanks a lot for the positive feedback buddy! I’m happy that I could provide you with some good information on this exercise bike.

      Cheers!!!

  2. Hi,

    I enjoyed surfing your site, easy to navigate. Your descriptions of the bike and features completely covered all questions that I had. I think this bike is going to improve the health of a lot of people that have issues with the upright. Many people do not have the ability to sit straight up but like the idea that they can recline and ride, therefore still getting exercise. The price of the bike is very reasonable and the fact it is a space saver is a great idea.

    1. Hey Carolyn! I really appreciate for taking your precious time in replying to this post. Yes, the main advantage is that it can serve as an upright bike as well as a recumbent bike. Whatever you said is absolutely correct. I’m happy that it helped you answer your questions.

      Best regards,

  3. Great post and good info.

    This is the excellent bike when you don’ have too much space, and you can’t go to exercise a lot.

    I know this because a friend has this problem.

    It is a very good machine, the onmy downsize is that indeed when you have a problem, it can take ages before the company answers you.

    But in the overall, this is one of the best!

    1. Thanks a lot Emmanuel. It is true that ProForm takes lot of time to reach you but you can try to visit their website at http://www.proform.com and try to get them to answer your questions a lot faster this way. They can also be reached via Instagram.
