Horizon Exercise Bike – A Good Investment Or a Waste of Money?

There are many positive reviews floating around about the most recent Horizon exercise bike models, but many are still hesitant to make a final decision and purchase one. If you are wondering how the top recumbent exercise bike models from this manufacturer really perform once you take them home, consider the following details on three of their top selling bikes.

The most basic model that caters to people who don’t want to spend a lot of money and aren’t interested in all the bells and whistles, is the Horizon RC-30 exercise bike. While it does not come with any of the advanced technological features that Horizon customers enjoy and in fact come to expect, it is does what it is designed to do extremely well. If you thought lower priced exercise equipment was all junk, it’s time to reconsider.

A larger sized LCD console displays various stats on your workout consistently and the frame has a nice step through design that eliminates having to climb over an awkward bar. It is extremely quiet easy to pedal, without any jerking or friction even through the most vigorous workouts. With eight resistance levels and 8 present workout programs, it will provide a wide variety of workouts.

For those who want a little more in terms of features, consider the Horizon RC-40 exercise bike. It has the same step through frame design, but the console is backlit in orange and has a built-in fan and speaker. Most MP3 players can easily be hooked in to play clearly while you workout.

This model includes more options as well, with ten resistance levels and fourteen preset workout programs.

Do you want even more? Then let’s look at the Horizon B701 exercise bike. This bike ups the ante to a great degree with an iPod docking station right on the front of the console. While your iPod charges you can control it right through the console and hear your selections through the built-in speakers. The large console still delivers consistent feedback on your workout.

There are two things about this option that some people do not like. First, it does not have the step through frame design so you will have to carefully maneuver over that bar to get on and off the seat. Second, there are only six exercise programs available. The highlight here is that it has a whopping 18 resistance levels, so those few exercise programs can be changed up with different intensities that way.

So which Horizon exercise bike looks the best to you? They are all extremely affordable for the features provided, so purchase in confidence.
