This bike has all, if not almost everything, that you would need in an exercise bike. A fairly popular and well liked bike, the Proform recumbent bike is all about performance, convenience as well as comfort.

The price however you look at is absolutely worth it as the durability and sturdiness of this machine ensures that you are getting good value for your money, therefore it represents a really good investment.

Additionally, this bike is fairly modern and comes with advanced technology thus adding to the convenience of this machine.

This is also aided by the recumbent design of the frame that is also designed to put less stress on the body whilst maximizing and giving you a total workout.

The design of this machine is also very nice and adds to the overall experience of it. This is a high-end machine with a fairly high price, but again let me state; if it is that you can afford this, then you should go for it.

This machine is a beast of a machine! The recumbent style of this machine will guarantee you a rigorous, yet easy workout session, as the design does not place too much stress on the body.

Additionally, this bike comes equipped with a fairly large seat (oversized in fact), therefore giving support to your buttocks and back. Additionally, the seat is easily adjusted thus catering to different types of body mass and height.

This machine is up to date and in tandem with modern technology as it has a back light display, a USB charge port and is compatible with tablets etc. the machine also comes with up to 25 different resistance levels as well as 32 different pre-set workouts that gives a variety of workout options. The price, however, is fairly expensive; even if the features justify the price.


  • Up to 25 different resistance levels
  • Oversized seat that is easily adjusted
  • Recumbent design for total workout
  • Very modern and compatible with technology
  • 32 different workout programs that gives variety

  • Price is fairly expensive

This is a really user friendly bike that has loads of features for comfort and convenience. Additionally, it offers a variety of workout features that will guarantee you a complete workout. Whilst the price is a bit expensive, the features do justify the price.


Profrom definitely manufactures some fairly high-end exercise bikes. My pick amongst the three however is the 315 CSX as I believe that in terms of price to performance ration it strikes an even balance. With that being said, the 440 ES and the 4.0 ES are more expensive but the features are worth it. But I believe the better option is to save the extra dollars and go for the 315 CSX.
