NordicTrack Commercial VR25 Recumbent Bike
The NordicTrack Commercial VR25 Recumbent Bike has been recently upgraded and is top recumbent bike for home gyms. Its roomy seat with above-average back support is probably the most noticeable feature — and when you activate the console, you’ll see that it also has a 7″ touchscreen and can stream full-color iFit workouts. There’s also a bracket for your tablet computer.
- Recumbent Frame: Kick back in comfort. Recumbent exercise bikes remove strain from your back by letting you recline. Your weight is distributed over a larger area compared with your position on a regular bike. Plus, like many recumbent bikes, the VR25’s frame has a patented Step Thru design to make it easy to mount and dismount. Handgrips are included for your stability.
- Seat with Lumbar Support: It’s like a chair! The NordicTrack VR25 gets the brand’s fanciest seat. Excellent lumbar support is provided and the material is ventilated to help keep your back cool.
- 26 Resistance Levels: This unit provides a good range of challenge for beginners and mid-level athletes. The resistance is controlled digitally with quick-response One-Touch buttons.
- 35 Built-In Workouts: Get guidance from a certified personal trainer! The on-board workout programs were designed by an expert to help you burn calories, build endurance and improve your overall performance.
- iFit: An iFit subscription, you’ll be able to virtually ride your bike anywhere worldwide with Google Street View! You’ll also get to download a new and personalized workout every day.
- iFit-Enabled Touchscreen: The Commercial VR25 makes it easy to enjoy iFit workouts on its 7″ Smart HD Touchscreen.
- Attach Your Tablet: You can only access iFit on this touchscreen. However, you can merge your favorite apps and other files with your workouts by adding your own tablet. A tablet bracket is placed at eye-level but doesn’t obscure your view of the workout screen.
- Extra-Wide Pedals: Extra width in the pedals means you’ll have room to reposition your feet during workouts. This can promote comfort and endurance.
- Wireless Heart Rate Monitoring: A Bluetooth heart rate monitoring system (strap included) makes it convenient to get a highly accurate and continuous readout. If you prefer though, you can use the grip system that’s built into the handlebars.
- Self-Adjusting Fan: Keep cool without the fuss of fiddling with controls. The NordicTrack VR25 exercise bike has a “smart fan” that responds to your speed.
- Water Bottle Holder: It might be simple but it’s a much-appreciated extra. A convenient water bottle holder makes it more likely you’ll stay hydrated throughout your workout.
- Transport Wheels: Front-mounted wheels make it easy to move the VR25 from room to room or onto a moving van.
- High Capacity: The official user weight limit is 350 pounds.
- Size: This model doesn’t take up too much space. Its footprint is about 61″ x 23″.
