Choose from a wide selection of indoor cycles, recumbent bikes, exercise bikes, and hybrid trainers. Prioritize your workouts with a relaxed, secure fit of the recumbent. Or push it to high speed with an indoor cycle-similar to your outdoor road bike. Or pick a nice blend of the two with exercise bikes and hybrids.
Enjoy the nostalgic road bike feel of the chain drive system on our ProForm indoor cycles. Closely replicating a natural outdoor ride, the metal chain and sprockets reconnect you to a great workout option. If you are looking for a smoother, silent workout, give our belt drive system a go-found on several exercise bike models. Both options are adept and efficient.
Frictionless, silent, and consistent-the ProForm electromagnetic resistance system is the bike industry's superior braking system. Our felt resistance system is a close second with its compression brake style, quiet execution, and smooth delivery.
Saddle and Handlebars
We love options and we know you do too. Our saddle and handlebars are easily adjusted to fit you. Ergonomically designed for comfort, our non-slip handlebars cut down on fatigue so you can ride longer. Plus, with the horizontally and vertically adjustable saddle you can find your perfect fit.
With revolutionary 20 percent incline and decline capabilities-the Tour de France Series indoor cycles automatically adjust the incline and decline to simulate the actual landscape of your selected route. Now you can effectively train for any course, any destination, in any season. Available exclusively with the Tour de France Series.
Digital resistance allows you to adjust your workout for increased calorie burn and higher intensity. Our smooth, frictionless felt and magnetic resistance systems allow you to incrementally adjust your workout without interrupting your rhythm.
Intelligent Wind Resistance
Our smart technology adjusts the resistance of your bike based on your personalized wind profile. By calculating your unique key measurements, your indoor cycle applies the same natural resistance you would feel on the road. Available exclusively with the Tour de France Series.
Electronic Shifting Controls
We take your training seriously. Now available on the TDF Pro, ProForm features customizable gear ratios to match your personal road bike. With a triple front chainring and 10-speed back cassette, you can smoothly move through 30 gears down the valleys and over the summits of your personal records.
Track your training intensity like the pros with a power meter for the purest indication of your cycling performance. Only available on our Tour de France Series indoor cycles, ProForm individually calibrates the power display to assure precision readouts.
Get a smoother, more comfortable workout with the heavy-duty, inertia-enhanced flywheel. Our faster gear ratio and effective weight placement deliver a natural cycling experience.
Feel secure when you step into our pedals. With several options available, you can opt for toe cages and adjustable straps for added efficiency, comfort, and stability.

ProForm® bikes come with a variety of display options. From full color touchscreen to RaceTrack® display to multi-window priority-you'll always have your key workout stats ready at-a-glance.
Train smart with your workout speed, time, distance, and calories burned easily displayed. Your console will also help you access built-in workout programs, iFIT® technology, iPod® volume control, resistance levels, Quick Resistance™ controls, and more.
Heart Rate Monitor
- To monitor your heart rate on the console, either place your hand on the EKGTM Grip Pulse during your workout or use a wireless chest strap transmitter (sold separately).
A heart rate monitor is an effective way to improve your aerobic endurance, lose weight, or assess your fitness level. With ProForm, you have two options available on our bikes. Place your hands on the EKG™ Grip Pulse throughout your workout to receive accurate and instantaneous readings.
Several of our models include an interface that communicates with a wireless chest strap transmitter. The chest strap (sold separately) broadcasts your heart rate information to the console, where you can easily stay in your target heart rate zone.
